eton corporation wikipedia page tampered

Approximately three years ago, Eton Corporation's Wikipedia page was edited several times by a user named Sohrabah, and all of those edits were reverted. Reasons cited for the reverts include spam, COI (confict of interest), and violating NPOV (neutral point of view). Sohrabah submitted five edits to the page during July 16 and 17, 2007.

The comment included with one of Sohrabah's submissions is "Eton Corporation is redoing this site to make sure they are reflected fully and accurately to wikipedia audiences". That's not how Wikipedia works. But it appears that no damage has been done, and the pre-existing, factual content has won out.
