Just noticed your addition at the mirror list; that "organization" is much more problematic that you may think. They actually have about 100 domains - I've tried to list them here (big red section in the middle of the page) and periodically hunt them down. Would love to blacklist them, but I really hate to subvert the intent of that tool. Kuru (talk) 23:08, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
Precious five years!

- Thanks for letting me know; no one told me it was at AfD. But I was surprised it was promoted to GA and in any case I don't have anything to do with GA, so I won't participate in the reassessment. Yngvadottir (talk) 01:37, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
Edits to Entry on Frost & Sullivan
My 1st response was lost when saving so I'll try this again.
First, thanks for your suggestions. I see and agree with your points that the initial contributions were too complimentary; I'll try and keep future contributions more fact based.
I had worked in the industry analyst world for a long time so I have familiarity with Frost & Sullivan, Gartner, IPMV, Forrester, Yankey Group, Ovium, E&Y and other such analyst/consulting firms, which is why I chose to start here.
I still feel uncomfortable with the reference to IPMV because when you look at their website, they seem to 'trash talk' many competitors with many accusations but no evidence to prove their claims (see https://ipvm.com/section/Awards). In looking at credible, 3rd party sources (I.E. Forbes, Business Week, Fortune, Fast Company, Venturebeat, etc.) I can find no bases for any of these claims against any of the companies mentioned in the IPMV website. Ultimately leading me to believe it is just 'trash talking'.
I will remove the reference altogether and we can leave it at that for now. I will continue to scour 3rd party sources and look for evidence of these claims or supporting facts and can update the entry if and when such information comes to light.
- @Utexx: Thanks for your note. I've responded on the article talk page, pinging the editor who originally added the criticism. Yngvadottir (talk) 21:41, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
Hi, earlier today you used http://www.dailymail.co.uk/indiahome/indianews/article-2571447/Anca-Verma-Arms-dealers-wife-claims-beaten-Tihar-Jail.html to support a statement that prison officers were dismissed after being found to have extorted & harrassed Verma. The DM article does NOT support this info (and the DM should not be used anymore), did you even bother to check?184.108.40.206 (talk) 23:43, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
- No, I didn't check the references at all; as my edit summaries showed, I was just fixing the English. Since I came to the article from a noticeboard complaint that said it had been edit warred over, I assumed others had checked the references as part of the toing and froing. I now see this, which contradicts the statement you removed, so it's good you removed it. However, the article is still unclear about the joint ventures; see the message I left on the talk page. Maybe you can help with that? Yngvadottir (talk) 05:11, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
