In any case, it's in the multiple tens of thousands, so I think we can 
agree that the original Wikipedia article writer didn't dig up Brian 
Peppers from the obscurity of the Ohio sex offenders registry.

As for why you don't have an article, I would've thought that is fairly 
obvious.  Unless you're famous in some area I don't know about, it would 
seem not very many people have commented publicly about you.  If they 
have, or if you do something that causes a few thousands of people to 
write about you, then I should think you ought to have a Wikipedia article.
