Commercial References[edit]

I'm uncomfortable drawing a hard line here, but the mention of 'some' businesses which may be significant or appropriate (like Cliff's Meat Market or Weaver Street Market) generally results in anyone who has a business in Carrboro posting a reference or a link to their business and turns the page into commercial spam. What is possibly appropriate is a link to a Wikipedia article on the business in question which would need to survive the usual Wikipedia criterion of notability. Thoughts?

I agree that this could be a good guideline. I don't think the picture gallery of selected businesses adds much in the way of encyclopedic information to the article. If there were a picture of Weaver Street Market, perhaps.--Gloriamarie (talk) 22:12, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

I agree. The picture of Cliff's is not a picture of Cliff's (as you would see it from the street) but is really an ad for Cackalacky Condiments, a technique their folks continually use to subvert the purpose of Wikipedia.

Elizabeth Cotten[edit]

Elizabeth Cotten, One of the most influential guitarists was born in this town. I think it should be mentioned some where in the article.Pouyakhani (talk) 12:12, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
