To introduce myself: I am mostly active in the German Wikipedia where you can find my profile and work at https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/
I do not know Lsj (the user who started with bot-generated contend via his bot Ljsbot) personally and the only work from him I know is the topic on bot-generated content in several wikipedias. I am sure he is doing his best to bring Wikipedia forward and that the start of this project for him is a step to make Wikipedia better again. So from my point I am not in opposition to him as a person even when I am critizising hin in this special topic.
For readers an article like e.g. Yungasia_tricolor (random article) does not really help if someone is searching for informations. This article only transports more or less correct taxonomic notes on a species name - it does not help if you want to know something on this species - how it looks like, where it lives and how it lives. So if really someone searches for this special species of leafhoppers (what only can be expected for experts in entomology) he will not find any needful information on it that helps - the information given is not better than no information. I would expact that an author at least would tell me where I can find it (Brasil as you can read in the easy to find first description of Zanol 1991) - the main argument that this article is better than none does not count for me.
