Way back in March 2006, someone in Indonesia created an article in bad English about 'Budi Santoso' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Budi_Santosohttp://www.webcitation.org/5rqIxQBCL
"a Indonesian business tycoon who has owned a string of successful businesses"
who "took control of his father's Tobacco shop aged 20, and by age 29 had turned it into the largest business in the country"
"At the time, Indonesia was a Big country. Santoso, now mass-producing Cigarettes spares for the whole country and for overseas."
he also "He set up every Soccer team in Central Java."
Over the months the article acquired some categories, including someone helpfully adding the category 'billionaires' but the language was never really cleaned up. In September 2007 someone said that it was 'unreferenced'.
Eventually now, 4-and-a-half years after creation, somebody has listed for AFD, although he doesn't seem too sure of himself: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Art...on/Budi_Santoso
Perhaps someone should inform them that Indonesian billionaires don't just appear without trace, nor do people owning 'the largest business in the country' (of 200 million people) and that this is a total fantasy.
Just goes to show how utterly hopeless Wikipedia is for anything that doesn't concern the developed world.This post has been edited by wikieyeay: Mon 9th August 2010, 1:36am
