Expedia Spinoff[edit]

I deleted references to IAC travel since those have spun-off into Expedia. For reference:

If there's a better way to show that these are no longer part of IAC, edit away... --Tiffanicita 22:23, August 16, 2005 (UTC)

history of IAC?[edit]

There's a remarkable dearth of history on IAC; anybody able to help out? --moof 21:41, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Question on the Barry Diller section[edit]

In looking at other corporations/conglomerates it would seem that the entry on Barry Diller here is out of place. I'm not sure if it should be removed. Opinions? Adiamas (talk) 21:35, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Remove it; anything to remove the peacock tail is welcome here. -Jéské (Blah v^_^v) 21:37, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Removing external links[edit]

I have removed this extensive set of external links that do not seem to meet the expectations of WP:EL and do not seem to functioning for WP:V. Jeepday (talk) 22:47, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

[Removed the SPAMs from here, see the history of the page for the details 68.39.174.238 (talk) 02:34, 7 December 2007 (UTC)]

Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not a mere directory of links nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Inappropriate links include (but are not limited to) links to personal web sites, links to web sites with which you are affiliated, and links that exist to attract visitors to a web site or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam policies for further explanations of links that are considered appropriate. If you feel the link should be added to the article, then please discuss it on the article's talk page rather than re-adding it. See the welcome page to learn more about Wikipedia. Thank you. Jeepday (talk) 22:49, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

I agree those were useless. Excellent. 68.39.174.238 (talk) 02:34, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
My larger concern is the citations. I'm going to nominate this article for deletion if sources are not found before the COI report I just added on behalf of the anon above clears. -Jéské (Blah v^_^v) 04:52, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

IAC's Business Units Links[edit]

I re-organized IAC's business units according to alphabetical order.

I have added external links to the websites. I am not affiliated with IAC in any way nor am I trying to advertise their products. Is this OK?

Spyware[edit]

How about mentioning the spyware they install on your computer —Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.234.251.21 (talk) 04:57, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Requested split 2009[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

I propose splitting the IAC/InterActiveCorp into two articles, IAC/InterActiveCorp and List of business operations of IAC/InterActiveCorp. You can help working on the second article at User:Evosoho/Sandbox/IAC/List and the first article at User:Evosoho/Sandbox/IAC. --3^0$0%0 16:42, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Support --3^0$0%0 16:57, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Per WP:NOTDIR and WP:EL, I have removed these inappropriate external links from the body of the article.  Chzz  ►  19:15, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Requested move 2009[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was Procedural close — the movereq procedure is not a substitute or shortcut around the deletion procedure.))
V = I * R (talk) 23:16, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

I think IAC/InterActiveCorp should be moved to User:Evosoho/IAC/old for edit history purposes. An article for IAC/InterActiveCorp would be devoloped at User:Evosoho/IAC. Wikipedia editors would edit User:Evosoho/IAC not User:Evosoho/IAC/old which currently resides at IAC/InterActiveCorp. IAC/InterActiveCorp would redirect to User:Evosoho/IAC. The talk page would remain open for discussion and the talk page for User:Evosoho/IAC and would be moved to User talk:Evosoho/IAC. I object to IAC/InteractiveCorp's prod and instead take the path I have explained instead. --3^0$0%0 20:43, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

That's entirely unnecessary. If you intend to improve the article, feel free to do so at it's current location. You have 7 days before the PROD will expire, and you can edit it during those days. Please review WP:PROD. Feel free to contact me on my talk page if you have any further questions. Killiondude (talk) 21:03, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
  • PS.: when you request a move, the proper procedure is to use {{subst:move}}. it appears that you substituted the {{movereq}} template instead, which creates a mess. Thanks.

IAC[edit]

1. IAC does not put spyware on your computer.

2. I oppose deleting this article. I just think it needs a rewrite.

Samwb123 (talk) 19:01, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Do you work for IAC? You have been spamming every IAC related article stating that they don't put spyware, when they did in 2009. Now, however, they have removed it, and their software are all PUPs. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bryzal (talkcontribs) 23:50, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

OkCupid[edit]

Don't they also own OkCupid now too? 97.81.65.138 (talk) 17:33, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Merge 2011[edit]

Agreed. This is a pointless article. Merge it. PlantRunner (talk) 00:19, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

Tags[edit]

I added out of date, POV, and refimprove tages. Some sections are seriously out of date, e.g. 2008 financials. The History section sounds like it was copied from the company's website, especially the headings. There are many un-cited statements that need references. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bobjuch (talkcontribs) 17:34, 5 June 2012 (UTC) Bob (talk) 17:36, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Sacco Incident[edit]

I re-added the Sacco Incident with an additional reference. It appears to be sufficiently notable to IAC as a company.--Nowa (talk) 22:05, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Are you sure? While there are plenty of references to the incident itself in reliable sources, I question whether this is of sufficient long-term notability to the company? Thanks, JoeSperrazza (talk) 14:51, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
Well,it's still getting coverage related to the company. But even if it wasn't I think it's sufficiently notable with 2000+ articles on Google News specifically covering IAC and Sacco. --Nowa (talk) 16:39, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
But, the coverage (including the link you shared) is about Sacco having been at IAC at the time of the incident. Are there sources that stipulate that the incident has an enduring effect on IAC (i.e., that would pass WP:UNDUE)? If not, then this seems to be a WP:BLP1E incident, neither relevant to her nor to IAC. JoeSperrazza (talk)
I read through WP:undue in more detail, but could not find the “enduring effect” criteria you mentioned. What it did say is “Once it has been presented and discussed in reliable sources, it may be appropriately included.” IAC'a response to Sacco's tweet meets this criteria as a significant action by IAC. See, for example:

Requested move 2014[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: No consensus, not moved (non-admin closure) DavidLeighEllis (talk) 03:42, 1 April 2014 (UTC)


IAC/InterActiveCorpIAC (company) – Move history seems hazy going back to 2005, but it looks like this article started at IAC/InterActiveCorp, was moved to InterActiveCorp, then moved back to IAC/InterActiveCorp, then moved to IAC (company). Earlier in 2014 it was moved back to IAC/InterActiveCorp again with an edit summary "much better, when disambiguation is needed, to use the actual name of the comany". Per WP:PRECISION, "(company)" seems sufficient - there are no other companies that abbreviate to IAC, so there is no need to distinguish it further as "the company previously called InterActiveCorp". McGeddon (talk) 19:37, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

Sacco incident/OK cupid gay marriage stance[edit]

Some addition to the Sacco incident section regarding the OK Cupid stand on Gay mmarriage and the ousting of Eich from the Mozila organisation seems appropriate. As I see it they are preaching as they practice. Adagio67 (talk) 12:41, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
