Re: Wikipedia:Verifiability - Mailing lists as sources

No doubt it was the same desire for attention/participants that
prompted one person to
use a bot to generate 100,000 article stubs in the Volapuek
Wikipedia. This raised the
Volapuek Wikipedia's position in the list of Wikipedias sorted by
number of articles,
attracting a lot of attention, not all of it favorable. (One response
was a proposal to
delete the entire Volapuek Wikipedia.)

Whoa...  A generator was good enough to do *all* those articles?!
Why don't they do them for natlangs, too?  Are they accurate?
