My reply was a personal message to rhuber at uni-bremen.de as stated in the head of the forwarded message by rhuber at uni-bremen.de.
This person forgot that such a message cannot be forwarded without the agreement of the sender - such forward is under penalty of French and EU laws (and probably German ones too).

The article does provide any prove (e.g. screenshots) that someone from the technical staff has made such unauthorized changes nor a statement of the WORMS on this case. The WORMS page lists 3 edits the oldest from 2005, can you really exclude that the error was not unintentionally introduced by one of the editors?
