Review of revision 4512972 [Passed][edit]

Notes for the reviewer[edit]

  • There's a whole section in the BBC article dedicated to analysis from Jonathan Marcus (it even has his photo). Even though they changed some aspects of their article because there were further comments from the state news, for instance, the Marcus section is there. It is not a great leap to conclude from his analysis that there are suspicions of assistance from Iran. --SVTCobra 20:12, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
@SVTCobra: Ah yes, I see the section, with his name and picture. They thoughtfully put his name in an image so it can't be string-searched (I've had stuff like that happen to me before, with text being rendered semi-invisible by making it an image — such as the full text of tweets, radically text-based material turned into an image). --Pi zero (talk) 20:21, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
@SVTCobra: Btw, I do most of my review using a browser that lets me turn off javascript for all news sites by default, having learned the hard way that some news sites have javascript that borders on malware; and BBC also thoughtfully formatted their article such that without javascript none of the images are visible. Hence there was no picture of him and, thanks to their rendering his name as an image, no name for me to see either. --Pi zero (talk) 20:26, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
That would have proven useful on the Mugabe article ... one source there did pop up malware if the page was open for 20 minutes or so. Well, I don't blame the source, it was probably one of their advertisers, but yes, it can be a problem. But how did you verify the map I made without images?
