Today I received a message from Wikipedia, that someone deleted Wirtland entry from Wikipedia! The guy who did this is “…a conservative Christian from west-central Ohio, currently in graduate school in Indiana…” (as he tells himself).
Speechless! What a shame, Wiki! How a single and pretty uneducated person can just delete your article, used by thousands of people for years???
Wiki message offers a way to contact this so-called “editor”:
Shall we do something to restore Wirtland’s rights and fight against ignorance? If there are people knowledgeable in dealing with the dark dungeons of Wikipedia, please comment and tell us what should be done.
Government ofWirtlanddecided to grantWirtland citizenship to Edward Snowden. The official letter from the world’s first sovereign cybercountry underlines Mr. Snowden’s “contribution in protection of human rights in the internet”. Official residence permit was issued in the name of Edward Joseph Snowden.
“Your case has vividly showed to the global community how the modern technologies can be used for purposes different from what people subscribe to, when they sign up for web-based services. While citizenshipof a cybercountry may seem merely symbolic, you know about the potential of socialprojects in the internet and their influence on real life. Wirtland offers our citizenship to showour support to your case, and ourappreciation of your achievements,”- states the Wirtland’s letter to Mr. Snowden.
Mr. Snowden, former technical contractor for the United States National Security Agency (NSA) and CIA, leaked details of top-secret U.S. and British mass surveillance programs to the press. On June 23, 2013, US officials said that Snowden’s US passport had been revoked.
In 2010 Wirtland granted citizenship to Julian Assange.
Wirtland has introduced the citizenship application processing fee. The application processing fee is set at 5 US$ (about 3,8 EUR) in any currency, payable by PayPal or credit card. When you request your Residence Permit, please email us notification about payment together with your completed Application Form. This symbolic sum helps to filter our underage applicants and spammers.
Please note that Wirtland citizenship, including membership in this network, remains completely free. This application processing fee is applicable only if you are requesting an official Wirtland document, i.e. submitting an application for Residence Permit.
We have spotted several applications for Android and other devices, which are based on the content of Wirtland sites. While Wirtland does not object against using our content and images are for non-commercial purposes, the Government of Wirtland states that these applications are not official products, and Wirtland has no connection with creators or sellers of such products.
Update: The creator of this application has responded to this post, so now we are in contact. Thank you! See comments below.
