From a style perspective, is it appropriate to quote a mission statement from a web page in an article? -- Joi 05:05, 8 Sep 2004 (UTC)
No, Joi, it is not appropriate. It's also interesting that you'd bring this up, when nearly four years later, your Creative Commons would receive a $500,000 grant from the very same Omidyar Network. Good thing you didn't push too hard to keep Wikipedia free of mission statement puffery in this case. -- Thekohser 16:09, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Likely conflicted editor wrote much of this article
The evidence seems that a very single-minded editor put forth most of the PR puff found in this "encyclopedia" article. It really ought to be fixed, but what are we to do, with an Omidyar partner now sitting on the Wikimedia Foundation board of trustees? -- Thekohser 16:03, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
And guess who the IP belongs to ... "Omidyar Network Services, LLC NEXTWEB-207-47-3-96-28 (NET-207-47-3-96-1) 18.104.22.168 - 22.214.171.124" -- Seth Finkelstein (talk) 08:05, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
The Same Guidelines Apply to Omidyar as to Any Other Wikipedia Article
Without exception. As written, this currently reads like a PR piece. This is embarrassing to Omidyar, Wikipedia, editors, and readers. Benefac (talk) 15:08, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
