Firstly, writing an article about your company and putting it into
Wikipedia, then calling Brad and complaining about the fact that it
was deleted, is by no means free.  Secondly, links from Wikipedia only
take traffic to your website if someone a) goes to that article, and
b) follows the link.

Finally, why is this thread on foundation-l?  This is a
project/community issue, not a foundation one.
