Cambodia[edit]

A statement like "especially good articles on the American intervention in Cambodia" makes one highly suspect about the conclusions of that paper: seriously, the best articles are those where the systemic bias of editors shows most, i.e. USA editors writing about USA matters? I doubt it. In fact, the metrics chosen by no means measure quality but only popularity. Yet another failure to provide any useful information other than the usual tautology "popular topics are popular". --Nemo 18:54, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
