I deleted that because I don't think it's a good idea to list every toy or sold product in the shape of a broomstick, there are hundreds of them, and I think it is also offtopic.
- It is worth mentioning because of the controversy. - Patrick 10:21 3 Jun 2003 (UTC)

Polk County book
_ _ I removed
- See also: Wicca and Appalacian Mountain Charms of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Polk County, North Carolina US (1923) privately published.
Besides being improperly formatted (is "Wicca" the first word of the book's title or not? Does the title include the word "Appalachian, or does it need a "[sic]" notation?), it reeks of unverifiability at best, and non-existence or creation with fraudulent intent at worst, and perhaps most important, unavailability to our readers. If we don't have a credible & economical place to lay hands on it, it can't be a "see" of any kind, tho it could appear as a report of claims that the book exists. (And the existence and notability of the claims of the book's existence must be verifiable, even if nothing else about the book is.)
_ _ I'd like to see this in the article -- provided it doesn't make us look like suckers.

The History of the Broom vs Witchcraft.
Why is the section on Witchcraft so much longer than the section on the history of the Broom? Where is the archeaological evidence of early uses of the broom?
Surely there is more to know about this ubiquitous tool than Harry Potter references and its imagined use by witches?
Most of this section has no references and just sounds silly. If the information can not be documented then it should be removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Unicornforge (talk • contribs) 02:03, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
Brooms in wider culture
Unsure if it is the right place to place it or if it is of any importance, but Halmstads BK supporters are called The Brooms and thougth it might should be mentiond. --> Halmstad, Talk to me 22:54, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
Adding video content
Hey, I am working with the Global Lives Project, a nonprofit working to create an open video library of human experience. GLP has footage of an active project participant sweeping outside his convenience store with a large broom, could this footage of brooming enhance the broom article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by ClaireRedwood (talk • contribs) 20:15, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

http://www.slate.com/articles/life/design/2012/06/broom_history_how_it_became_flat_.single.html#pagebreak_anchor_2 might make a decent source for the history and manufacturing of brooms. WhatamIdoing (talk) 14:53, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
