New page patrol not assuming good faith towards workshop editors
New page patrol is not assuming good faith towards workshop editors
The attitude is: “More than 80% of the new articles that come in are paid for.” 
Kensho Technologies and WikimediaDC held a workshop, Kensho Edit-a-thon, and hilarity ensued.
Newpage patrollers repeatedly moved new articles to draft, sometimes under rationales of "not WP:SPS, WP:PRIMARY", and
"References are a mix of press-release and PR"
This is the summary process in practice, contrary to the New pages patrol - Drafts, apparently since they are tired of losing notability discussions at articles for deletion, a consensus process;
And they then warned editors moving drafts to article space, not to do that, but to submit to Articles for Creation, a broken non-consensus process, per Incubation;
And they warned editors about paid editing without evidence;
And they applied inappropriate tags to articles; 
And an article was taken to deletion, Madeline Bell (hospital executive), and kept.
Be advised. Glam event organizers may want to organize counter patrollers, to engage in the emotional labor of defending the inclusion of notable content.
