Sources?[edit]

Does it really need so many sources? Although we need at least two independent sources, each fact only needs one source, so if you could cut them down it may attract a reviewer more quickly. --InfantGorilla (talk) 08:26, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, that was my bad. As a new editor, I just cited all of my sources, to make sure I wasn't in violation of any policy. In the future, I'll cut down on the references. Bkissin (talk) 12:20, 9 September 2010 (UTC)
I understand. As you were the original author, you are probably the best placed to sift through them to choose which ones we actually need. The more sources, the more work a reviewer is taking on. --InfantGorilla (talk) 13:27, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Presentation[edit]

The presentation seems to give an unintended bias, by giving the first half of the article to Mr Jones, and the second half to the complaints (apart from a brief mention in the opening paragraph.) Although pyramid style may be more disjointed, the alternative of appearing to bury one side of the debate below the fold is worse, in my opinion. See WN:SG. --InfantGorilla (talk) 08:26, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

It absolutely was not my intention to serve any bias in the article, or to bury the criticism of the actions farther down the page. I was unsure of how to structure it, because either way you seem to write about it, one side is going to get offended, it seems. If someone could help find a better way to structure the article, that would be greatly appreciated. Bkissin (talk) 12:24, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Update - Obama comment[edit]

The US president spoke against this a couple of hours ago.

The lede, content, and perhaps headline, should be updated.

Review of revision 1091817 [Failed][edit]

Sidenote to the article[edit]

As of 19.20 UTC today, September 9th, ALL of the websites run by Pastor Terry Jones and Dove World Outreach Church are offline, including the main church website at www.doveworld.org and his campaign blog at www.islamisofthedevil.com/blog. The first redirects to a "bad hostname" error, the second simply fails DNS access. If this is worthy to add, feel free, or at least note it if nothing else.

I would personally prefer not to add it to the article. You could post it on the opinion/comment page when it goes live. --InfantGorilla (talk) 19:17, 9 September 2010 (UTC)
