Here's another possibility. Wikipedia Review's "Articles" forum was
initially designed to discuss article content in depth, and point out
any specific problems in language, structure, sourcing, whathaveyou. It
has rarely been used for this purpose, but if and when a user did post
another in-depth evaluation, it certainly could be beneficial to point
it out on Wikipedia.
Let's suppose Daniel Brandt ran his plagiarism checker again, and posted
the result on Wikipedia Review. Would a link to the site not be
beneficial to the project in calling a problem to the attention of editors?
Wouldn't an e-mail to a list do an equally good job?
Realize, I'm speaking strictly of links in project and user space. There
is exactly one occasion where a link to the site may be justified in
article space, and that is in a biography page that should have been
deleted a long time ago.
If it's the article I think you're referring to, it's not his website,
it's just a message board he sometimes posts on, so there would be no
point in linking to it.
