Unencyclopedic marketing prose[edit]

What's going on here? This article now reads like a tourist brochure, not an encyclopaedia. Where did the one image and all the original text go? --ProfDEH (talk) 22:11, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

You're right: It was blatantly-biased non-NPOV, un-sourced subject-worship/marketing talk, which was pasted over the top of the original article wholesale in October 2011. I've reverted it to the smaller August 2011 article, which is also unsourced, but is far more basic, contains far less unsourced claims, and does not contain self-congratulatory marketing. Hopefully anyone questioning a revert to 3 years back will take a look at the 2012–2013 version and immediately understand why. --Closeapple (talk) 00:23, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
