+ - Promoting vs Describing your stuff on Wikipedia?

Emmanuel writes: An OT email (sorry its not yet up at Google groups) on the FF dev-extensions mailing list led me to this interesting discussion going on at Wikipedia whether the FF CookiePie extension has a right to have a page on Wikipedia. The discussion centers on Notability [defined as "worthy of being noted"]. A user called Veinor who claims to be pioneer in removing spam from Wikipedia has marked the article for deletion. A comparison is being drawn with Greasemonkey on Wikipedia which has passed the Notability test. Join in the discussion at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_fo r_deletion/CookiePie. Anyone is free to contribute. Has Sebastian Wain of nektra.com crossed the fine line between describing and promoting? Note: The Notability guideline is itself under dispute at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Notabi lity. Also check out the Wikipedia policies on Conflict on Interest and Advertising.
