I bought and use their goggles, and I think they're a neat product. That's about it. As for not editing for six years, the simple answer is that I forgot my password (switched from Chrome to Safari and lost the saved password, and my old email no longer worked), so I've been editing anonymously. I made a final (successful) attempt to recover the password before creating the FORM article because I didn't want Wikipedians to think I was an anonymous shill. I guess that backfired! Honestly, I appreciate that Wikipedia needs to take a hard line on spammers and shills, and I concede that I could have written the "reception" section in a more neutral tone by highlighting more negative points. But I'm a bit shocked that the article got deleted and my account got blocked overnight without anyone giving me a chance to make changes. Drfred55 (talk) 16:29, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
- This has "paid article" written all over it. OhNoitsJamie Talk 16:30, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
- Gee, thanks for that enlightened analysis. Look, I wasn't paid. I modeled the article after the one for the founder's previous company Recon Instruments, which has been up for years and has no tags on it. I'm not sure why my article doesn't pass muster but that one does... Drfred55 (talk) 16:47, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
