Wikipedia - people page - what's wrong?

Recently I got to be highly skeptical about the future and quality of the Wikipedia, especially on the article about people.

Problem



  • People from West create pages for the "winners" of a TV show and think it's perfectly ok--as those "winners" do deserve the Wikipedia page

  • People from India create pages on "bloggers" and "cinema people". They think that it's perfectly ok to have them featured. People like Vilayanur S. Ramachandran have decent page and where as notable people like Dr.C.N.Deivanayagam are absolutely ignored.

  • If the trend is continuing, some college topper may get a page in Wikipedia and... heck everyone may get a article just like a profile page
