In those threads and links following from the above are people
showing that these 'goldbug' related projects have serious trust
issues and may be some form of malware/crapware. Read the
linked threads for more info.

If you search around wikipedia for these projects and
look at their edit, talk and contributor histories you can
find their edit trails there. Bogus listings is their way of
free advertising and luring gullible users to them.

I don't know much about how these things are handled within
wikipedia community. But I have seen articles that have
'Controversy' sections in them.

So if I were an editor I'd add exactly such a controversy section
to all the pages... that some people see big issues with these
projects. And back it up with links out to these threads on the
cpunks, gnupg, and tor lists. At least that way it's on wikipedia
history for people to see.

Saw your arguments on the deletion page and figured
you would like to be aware of these issues as well.
