All right, I don’t know whether this is a hoax.
I am having trouble fitting the pieces together.
Here’s a summary from voat:
Wikipedia has a single short page about the franklin scandal
YouTube that makes the allegations out to be a hoax conspiracy theory: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franklin_child_prostitution_ring_allegations
I’m archiving all the evidence I can find of wikipedia scrubbing discussion and page history on the Franklin Scandal.
http://archive.is/lUerl current page on wikipedia
http://archive.is/gTEmY history of current page, notice how it starts in 2011 after original was deleted without a trace
http://archive.is/f9IqD current talk page. history of talk page: http://archive.is/VYTcU
http://archive.is/ochrP forum post containing old copy of the article from wikipedia in 2010, that was deleted
http://archive.is/m7QX2 metadata of original page history, from 2005-2011. All content is gone!
http://archive.is/neziz archives of talk page
Other franklin stuff on wikipedia:
http://archive.is/kkmtp article on Lawrence E King Jr is gone without a trace, redirects to disambiguation now. This is a very famous person who now has no wikipedia page
http://archive.is/3k3dX deletion of duplicate page
http://archive.is/BjFIR MONGO user, much recent censorship of the Franklin wiki page appears to be by this user
http://archive.is/oiZMm NuclearWarfare user
http://archive.is/pYSoR talk about deleting Conspiracy of Silence page
http://archive.is/Q54GT more discussion of the censorship, from back in 2010
http://archive.is/DlsN3 article discussing CIA and FBI editing wikipedia, which references the Franklin page
Here’s a timeline as far as I can tell so far:
20 Oct 2005 original page is first created
24 April 2011 user MONGO first appears in page history
10 May 2011 user NuclearWarfare first appears in page history
13 May 2011 page is deleted (and at some point all its history is scrubbed)
14 May 2011 page is restarted as a stub by user NuclearWarfare
31 May 2011 page is set to protected by user NuclearWarfare
3 May 2013 https://i.sli.mg/JpOCFk.pngPNG both NuclearWarfare and MONGO editing the page on the same day (are they working together?)
9 March 2016 user MONGO replies on talk page
