Famous people section[edit]

I don't think Sildakongen is worth listing as a famous person. The man is hardly famous beyond county borders. Locally, he is more known as an eccentric than an "entertainer"; or "master mariner", as his profession as master mariner does not make him worthy of this list; and the title of "herring king" is both ridiculous and confusing for pretty much everyone except the population of Haugesund. The title of a joke more than anything, and does not suit the tone of a serious Wikipedia article. --80.202.176.15 (talk) 01:29, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

I agree, but I have removed the whole list as original research since there were no clear inclusion critera. Listing "Famous" people is a highly subjective exercise that has no room in an encyclopedia. Rettetast (talk) 14:27, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
