NPOV?[edit]

The line about "In films since 1976's Bound for Glory, Place has only occasionally been given a chance to shine on the big screen." seems kind of balderdash considering the number of roles she's had, some of them substantial. It's also hardly NPOV. — Signinstranger 18:22, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Spoiler[edit]

Since "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman" was never on network TV, and only carried partially by some stations, the majority of people in North America never saw the show in its entirety; it has recently been re-released on DVD, and it is an outrageous injustice to viewers to include a major plot spoiler in this article. Plot details about one of Place's TV shows are not even relevant. It is sufficient to say that she was one of the primary characters on the show. What is wrong with the people who write these articles? Does wikipedia have no ethical guidelines about plot spoilers? This isn't an article about "M.H., M.H.", it's about Place. Shame on the author for spoiling it for the viewers who just bought the re-release. (Edit: I deleted the spoiler.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.147.122.14 (talk) 12:39, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Then you just violated WP:SPOILER. Sorry. DonIago (talk) 16:35, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Oh, I see. Irrelevant non sequiturs added to the idiocy are acceptable if they give away the story. Thanks for the heads up. Yet another reason to stay away from wikipedia. There are other sources to find info about non-technical subjects without being abused. If wikipedia sold pizzas, they'd guarantee a cockroach cooked into every one, because of the WP:COCKROACH rule that enforces that sort of thing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.147.122.14 (talk) 00:45, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
