Well, well, well. I did some forensic analysis on the IP number used by both "Local Resident" and "Amanda".
And what did I find? This little beauty of a link:
Wikipedia has banned a particular user, "I Love Bridges", for the "Creation of hoax bridge articles, and meddling with existing ones."
The same IP number used by Amanda is mentioned on that page. It has been banned from Wikipedia for a year because of long-term abuse.
Good riddance, Amanda. Wikipedia was right to ban you, but I'm not willing to settle for a one year ban. You and your hoaxes and copyright violations are not welcome here ever again.
I was shocked, shocked to discover that the first comment from "Local Resident" was posted from the same IP number used by Amanda in the past, and that this IP number is registered to an internet provider that is 1,200 miles away from the Drew Bridge.
I've tried to follow the advice of "Don't feed the trolls" but this is getting ridiculous.
Pierce County Washington's Landmarks and Historic Preservation Commission is hosting an interpretive sign dedication at this bridge on Tuesday, May 15.

Re: link still good?
I had to disable comments on Uglybridges.com, now BridgeReports.com, because of problems with spammers and troublemakers posting sexually explicit content. It's always something.
Yes, it's all good. Thank you!
Latest updates about the bridge collapse (in short, we still don't know much):
Re: Drone for luddite
Everybody raves about the DJI drones, but they're rather expensive. I'd suggest starting out with something cheaper, that way if you lose it in a river, it's not a huge setback.
For example, I bought a MJX Bugs B2C drone for $140 last Christmas. It has GPS, so it is able to maintain its own position while hovering. The controls are dead simple -- up/down, forward/backward, rotate left/right. Taking off and landing is easy, although it does require a song-and-dance to calibrate it before each flight.
It has a built-in camera which is adequate but not great. Unfortunately the weather has been so cold and windy so far this year that I haven't been able to take it out bridgehunting yet.
Laura: I'm not sure where the plaque from the Laflin Bridge ended up. The Bollinger County Archives & Genealogical Center in Marble Hill might know the answer.
FIU Footbridge coverage
Clip of surveillance video shows a portion of the collapse:
The blame game begins:
Story includes a rendering (scroll down) of what the finished bridge was supposed to look like:
"FIU employee heard a loud crack crossing under the bridge. Hours later, it collapsed.":
"Construction Firms Behind Collapsed FIU Bridge Faced Accusations of Unsafe Practices":
Attention "Justin": I know your real identity. Knock it off.
By popular demand, I've added more NBI data for the listings shown here.
I'm also renaming Uglybridges.com to BridgeReports.com to head off the complaints about whether a bridge is "ugly" or not. At some point, though, I might end up re-launching Uglybridges.com as a gallery of the most hideous UCEBs.
This bridge, and a whole bunch of acreage, could be yours for only $12,790,000
The remaining span of this bridge has reportedly collapsed into the river.
