Hi Paul Z: If someone was really interested in the evolution of an entry, then s/he could click on 'history' at the top of the page. Many controversial entries also have content under 'discussion' and there can be a warning in the page that what has been written has not been authenticated and is controversial. The identity of authors can be cryptic, however, and it's not always easy to identify who is the author of what. But, yes, if you wanted to, you (or anyone else) who has an account with them can sign in and edit the TSSI or other entries. In solidarity, Jerry PS to Jurriaan: did you notice the (4/6) comment by Kliman that he "added material on what the TSSI is really about, corrected major misstatements ...."?
