This article has no references at all. It is in violation of the arbitration rulings concerning anthroposophy-related articles and has been so for months. If adequate, non-anthroposophical sources are not cited in the next week or so, I will propose it for deletion.DianaW 03:29, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

If you wish this article to be next for cleanup according to the arbitration guidelines, propose this and give it enough months - as were required with other articles - for this to be done properly. By the way, A. sources are permitted for non-controversial aspects of a subject. Hgilbert 11:36, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

I *am* proposing it, and you've already had months. The arbitration was back in January and applied to the entire "family" of Steiner/Waldorf/anthroposophy articles on wikipedia. Fred Bauder was clear that the basic problem is using only or mainly anthroposophical sources to "document" that anthroposophy is the greatest thing since sliced bread. There are a couple dozen such articles that are exactly that - little mini-brochures that function to suggest anthroposophy does so many wonderful things for mankind. Like I say, the arbitration was in January, and it is clearly quite all right with the anthropsophists who have written all these articles that they sit forever and ever like this if no one hollers. I'm saying, either get to work fixing them or they should be deleted. Wikipedia isn't free advertising.DianaW 12:22, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Merge Anthroposophical Society in America with this article[edit]

It has been proposed that the article on the Anthroposophical Society in America be merged with this one. I disagree since they are two separate, independent organizations, the General AS being the international society and ASiA being the national society for the U.S. The General AS has a relationship with the national societies but each is an autonomous entity. There are Anthroposophical Societies in many different countries. Each national society deserves a separate article and it would be impractical to include them all in this article. --EPadmirateur (talk) 22:14, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
