Yes some interesting comment by Trillium. Where the articles mainly
promotional? Yes very. A number of them were copied and pasted from press
releases by the companies in question.

Were a number of the editors from the developing world? Also yes. This is
because they are willing to work for less and Orangemody was hiring from
sites like Elance.

I guess the fundamental question is, is Wikipedia a workspace to provide
employment for those in the developing world who are willing to do PR piece
work for some unknown PR firm? Or is Wikipedia an encyclopedia.
