A more reliable source[edit]

I'm asking another source for the statement that the general Louis André was a Freemason, when in the French article and in various French books, it's clearly said he was not.90.9.154.174 (talk) 02:20, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Larkin, Church and State[edit]

  • "Larkin, Church and State after the Dreyfus Affair, pp. 138–41: `Freemasonry in France’, Austral Light 6, 1905, pp. 164–72, 241–50."

The above reference was added to a number of articles:



It is clear that this is a copy of a citation from:

It is cited on page 9 as footnote 26. That footnote is given in full on page 19 and takes the form:

Larkin, Church and State after the Dreyfus Affair, pp. 138–41: `Freemasonry in France’, Austral Light 6, 1905, pp. 164–72, 241–50.

It is highly unlikely that if it were not a copy of this source that the Wikipedia version would use `Freemasonry in France’ (the single quotes are "`" (‘) and "’" (’) instead it would use 'Freemasonry in France' (the single quote of ' (')

The use as shown above is a breach of WP:SAYWHEREYOUREADIT.

(NB the article Affaire Des Fiches currently does not use this citation but instead relies of a link to French Wikipedia (fr:Affaire des fiches --which in this context is an unreliable source.)

I came across this WP:SAYWHEREYOUREADIT problem when editing Anti-clericalism and fixed it with this edit on 27 July 2013. I have only just investigated this problem because that edit also threw up a much bigger problem (see Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Catholicism#Unacknowledged internal copying and problems with citations).

Unless anyone else wants to help I will fix this relatively minor problem by including the original source in the citations, but for those copying text between articles please place a comment in edit history not only does that meet Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia but it also helps editors who follow you to find and fix errors like this one. -- PBS (talk) 13:14, 3 August 2013 (UTC)
