Pascagoula, Mississippi


Pascagoula, Mississippi is an article on the Swahili Wikipedia. It is bot generated by someone who does not speak any Swahili. The article is there with many other articles that are imho hardly usefull, I would even call it spamming.

Pascagoula has some 23.500 inhabitants and, I selected it as a random example of a brain dead experiment. When people truly want to improve the Swahili Wikipedia, they would add similar places from Tanzania and Kenya. They would add these places to the English language Wikipedia as well.

We need good relevant content in all languages, it makes some sense to create stubs for all the chemical elements, the presidents, popes, kings and emperors. Pascagoula Missisipi... what are they thinking ??
Thanks,
