Long article!

[edit]

But it's a bit old, isn't it? Kayau (talk · contribs) 12:04, 11 September 2010 (UTC)Reply

Its not very long at all. And no, its not old. The actual event took place in August, yes, but the news that the police may have shot some of the hostages was reported in the last few days. WackyWacetalk 12:29, 11 September 2010 (UTC)Reply
That's not true. The TV has been suspecting that ever since the day after the crisis. They even made up conspiracy theories about it. Kayau (talk · contribs) 13:16, 11 September 2010 (UTC)Reply

Misleading title

[edit]

The article title is misleading. Some of the eight not all eight. Current title infers all eight and that is next to impossible given eyewitness testimony. Even better than confirming my edit is to move the article to an appropriately named page. Lambanog (talk) 03:16, 14 September 2010 (UTC)Reply

Would Police may have killed up to eight tourists in Philippines hostage crisis be acceptable? Bawolff 17:10, 14 September 2010 (UTC)Reply
Closer to the contents of the article I think would be "Police may have killed some of the eight tourist victims in Philippines hostage crisis" Lambanog (talk) 02:16, 15 September 2010 (UTC)Reply
Done: I agree. I switched the {{misleading}} banner for a correction notice, now awaiting review:
 
Correction — September 15, 2010
 
This article was previously published under a misleading headline that implied that police may have killed all eight tourists who died.

As the author of this article, I would like to apologize for this mistake. I did not intend for the headline to be in any way misleading, or for it to imply something that was not the case. This was, however, my fault, and I apologize for it. WackyWacetalk 15:45, 15 September 2010 (UTC)Reply
