Untitled[edit]

This page had been heavily edited by an account called CCTPR, implying that they are affiliated with the CCT. The article was beginning to read like a press release, rather than an encyclopedia entry. Some of the information included in the previous versions of this page could be edited back in, but with care so as to avoid the appearance of "white-washing", or the like. kmccoy (talk) 21:53, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

agreed. The most difficult thing for me is the unintended conflict between myself and well-informed partisans (the graduate students of Prof X, or the PR department of company X) over the surprisingly difficult distinction between promotion and exposition. I welcome their contributions but have not found a way to deal with the promotionalism; typically they aren't wikipedists, never come here to edit but exerted themselves on account of the subject matter being a friend or mentor or employer; so they aren't in the conversational loop among editors and have no feel for this.
