Not according to the books themselves, Namdrol, padma norbu, or several other people who have commented on these issues.
I'm not in a position to dictate how best to describe "Madhyamaka" since I lack the necessary credentials and am not doing so.
You asked which article is better, on an open-source encyclopaedia. The ideal article would be unbiased, well-referenced, coherent and informative. The article A was least like this, while the article B is most like this. Therefore, article B is better.
It has nothing to do with “which article conforms most to my opinion about the subject matter”, as I am not personally in a position to do that. It has to do with simple facts like, for example, citing a single book five times in a row in an introduction is not acceptable referencing in any academic context, and will necessarily reflect bias. Or, briefly representing a Tibetan viewpoint out of context in the introduction to a tradition 2000 years old, with an extensive and complex contentious history, that is not always even Tibetan, is, also, necessarily reflecting a bias by attributing selective significance. None of these observations require significant authority about Madhyamaka nor a subjective evaluation of who is right, wrong or important.
