earlier comments[edit]

Greetings fellow station writer-uppers, I have a suggestion that we qualify station names with western australia in the titles, any complaints about that? with so many uk, canada and usa arts assuming centrality in the known universe, I believe we need the moniker, western australia - regardless of stubs. eagerly awaiting further comment.  :) vcxlor 08:14, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

I was about to post that that probably wasn't necessary, but then I found it at WP:NAME--looks like you're right that these ought to be moved. I say go for it. =) --Dvyost 06:08, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

references[edit]

I've had a quick look on the web to see if there are any online sources and although I have linked to two of them all references to the mystery explosion are v dubious and all seem to be written by just one guy. I think the article needs to be completely re-written to focus on events which are much better documented i.e. the experiment on sheep. Phonemonkey 21:08, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Removal of contents[edit]

I've removed all contents that couldn't be verified by the Australian police source, as well as two of the references. In spite of the article being tagged for months, nobody managed to back up the rather unusual claims. The previous references were, as has been pointed out already, quite suspect (or in less flattering terms: a bunch of conspiracy and pseudo-scientific rants).

The New York Times Reports about a large sysmic event at this location[edit]

[1]

If you look at this article, you will see that there were investigations and the conclusion is that this was a meteor, but it doesn't seem that the scientists are convinced. There is some teeth to the terrorist theory. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Linuxcpa (talkcontribs) 23:53, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Seismic event, again[edit]

I came to this page to find about about the seismic event, having read about it in Bill Bryson’s book, only to find it’s been discarded, and I've had to rummage in the edit history to find it.
I wouldn’t describe Bryson or the New York Times as conspiracy theorists or pseudo-scientific ranters; if they’ve referred to the incident I’d say that makes it notable.
If the truth is otherwise, it’d be fairer to put a counterpoint, not to bin it altogether.
I was intrigued by the story, as Bryson was, and wanted to know more; and I ‘m sure I’m not the only one.
So I’m proposing to re-write the account and put it back, unless there are any objections.
