Those editing this article might do well to read about biographies of living persons (BLP), neutral point-of-view, and What Wikipedia is Not. (it is not a battleground, a soapbox, it is not censored, etc.) Other policies and guidelines may apply, but note that as long as the citations are from reliable sources (which include but are not limited to major newspapers), back up the stated facts, adhere to BLP, and are worded neutrally, then both "positive" and "negative" information may be included in the article. This is not the place to paint either a "good" or "bad" picture of the subject, and it is not a free place for posting PR or propaganda. It is supposed to be an encyclopedia article about the subject. Think about if Encyclopedia Britannica were to have an article on the subject, what would it include? If you have a vested interest in the subject (personally, politically, etc.) please read about conflict of interest and decide if you should be editing this article at all. If you wish to declare a COI, you can post your suggested changes on this page where uninvolved editors can discuss them. Thanks. Katr67 (talk) 00:51, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
I have to admit, I'm confused by the repeated reversions. It seems to me that everything there is supported by the citations. I also added a citation to the original Jeff Mapes story from 1990, which corroborates several of the points. I suppose it's possible there's some nuance in the text that is offensive or not literally supported by the articles; if so, please point it out. But it is my firm belief that the text is well-cited, and furthermore, that it's important to include it, as it shows Frohnmayer's connection to one of the largest political scandals in the state. -Pete (talk) 01:30, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
An unregistered user says that Frohnmayer died early in the morning on March 10, but most news sources are saying March 9. The news story I used quoted the family statement released on March 10 saying he had died in his sleep "last night", which I and apparently most sources took to mean the 9th. Although this article is no longer subject to BLP guidelines, should we let the edits stick, per something akin to WP:BLPKINDNESS or demand sources? I'm going to assume good faith that the changes were by someone who knows, and not a vandal. Frohnmayer's formal obituary will likely be published soon and clear the matter up.
