something's going on - these edits are credited to "111" which is not an
editor in the editors list.

yesterday I got notification of another change made by "48" (actually
these numbers were part of IP addresses, why aren't they coming in under
a username) - that one left the page in a conflicted state.

It looks like someone might be trying out a breakin?
