I agree with this essay. The sort of thing you're speaking out against here goes hand in hand with other unencyclopedic styles, as set out in WP:BETTER, commonly combined with advertising, unwikified articles, uncategorised articles, unreferenced articles, non-notable articles, etcetera.--h i ss p a c er e s e a r c h 23:07, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
I came across this phenomenon a long time ago, but I didn't know there was an essay about it!
However, people have often disagreed with me -- although I've been a Wikipedian for a long time, but that doesn't mean anything. I've made a lot of edits, but a user's edit count does not necessarily reflect on the value of their contributions to Wikipedia... -- Rico 21:12, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
Hah, thanks. I originally got to know this phenomenon when the page for the Second Lebanon War was hit very hard with it during the first few weeks of the war. -- 22.214.171.124 (talk) 10:51, 29 April 2010 (UTC) (page starter, can't be bothered to login)
