Hi again,

I think the article is not related to paid editing, if you wish to discuss
that subject, you should probably open another thread.

It would be nice if the discussion and comments can be kept on topic :)


Cheers,

How do we know? Those who work extensively in this topic area and are
good at picking up paid editing make an educated guess. There are well
known patterns that represent paid editing. We could likely build a
tool that could look at all BLPs and give a numerical value to the
percentage that are most likely written for pay. If you look at a
random group of new BLPs at WP:NPP you will also get a decent idea.
