Should drop the "the"s. --Pi zero (talk) 15:06, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, it did seem a little off. Darkfrog24 (talk) 18:04, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

Review of revision 4321844 [Not ready][edit]

I eliminated the paragraph as I could not find a reliable source verifying it. Unsure about Irish World, but I just removed that part out and then resubmitted request for review. --George Ho (talk) 04:03, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

This is where I tell you the Meyer quote was in the BBC article when I drafted the text (and you all react with shoooooock and disbelief). It's not just Irish world; it's also in the National Scot, Heisenberg.org, Police.comminity... But I'm going to wild guess that all those other guys cribbed off BBC but just weren't as upfront about it as we are. If the BBC decided to remove it, maybe we should too. There might be something wrong with it. Darkfrog24 (talk) 04:32, 11 June 2017 (UTC)
Just in case, there is Template:Broadcast report, used for broadcast sources. --George Ho (talk) 06:41, 11 June 2017 (UTC)
True, sometimes a mainstream source removes something for a good reason. Sometimes they remove things for apparently no good reason (perhaps to save room on the page? have they never heard of NOTPAPER?). Imho it's bad enough when they just arbitrarily delete parts of history (what happened to the fact that one of those seats had been officially undecided for a while?), but when they remove stuff for a good reason they leave afaict no record, which to me smacks of "sweeping under the rug", a form of cover-up. Whereas we try to be much more open about what we do (even when what we do is keep things on a non-public mailing list). --Pi zero (talk) 11:47, 11 June 2017 (UTC)
