Promotional language[edit]

IP editor(s) have been abusing Wikipedia by using this article as a promotional space for the college - including sanitising the past by removing lists of previous principals, and the reference to student protests in 1968.

This has been characterised by a failure to provide any edit summaries.

If that's you, please don't do this. I spent a lot of time trying to make sense of the changes you made and reducing it to what is suitable for Wikipedia and what isn't. Editing is welcome but please see WP:SOAP for guidance on what Wikipedia is and isn't.asnac (talk) 06:57, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Edit request on 3 May 2012[edit]

Delete In June 1968, there was a six-day student protest that included Robin Scott, Malcolm McLaren, and Jamie Reid (all students at the time).[1] because Senior management of college has requested removal immediately.

Delete Recent Principals have included Peter Phillips (until 1994), Vic Seddon (1995–2001) and Mariane Cavalli (2001 to 2010). because Senior management of College has requested removal immediately

Action has been requested for immediate action.

  • Oppose. Disputed material is factually accurate and not remotely defamatory per WP:LIBEL. The views of "Senior management of College" on how they would like to see the College presented are completely irrelevant: see WP:SOAP. GrindtXX (talk) 21:28, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose as per GrindtXX. Incidentally could I invite Lahaia to confirm that he/she is not a sockpuppet of other users who have seemingly sought to abuse Wikipedia in an attempt to promote the College? I refer to the following SPAs: CroydonCollege, Hazelcroydon, the blocked Croydonmarketing, and Supernaif. asnac (talk) 17:27, 4 May 2012 (UTC)
