Confusion of economist and musician[edit]

See Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/Nicholas Stern for why the former content on the bio of the "outsider musician" did not result in deletion of the article.

However, there was a clear consensus that the article would have merited deletion if it had not had the former content (now restored) that describes the economist. Editors should feel free to act vigorously against further insertions relating to the musician.

I did not delete the economist page, as a matter of fact on both pages initially I had a redirect to the other in order to solve any confusion. However it was deleted, I'm assuming because of the brevity of the article, not the significance, and in its place I copied and pasted the Nicholas Stern article in, as the other was now gone. As far as the dramatic "vigorous acts", I can't really understand why that would be necessary. The consensus also did not address anything that I had mentioned, it simply said it was to be deleted in a "casual friday" democratic way, and then deleted it. Aubin

I just read your last reply in regards to deletion which frequently mentioned "false" and the "real Nicholas Stern". Why this person doesn't exist because someone with the same name is more prominent obviously doesn't make any sense, however if I were to put up another Nicholas Stern with a qualifier of "Titan Eagle" as he is also known, would there be any reason to delete?

  • While I'm doing my best to comply with the WP guideline against biting the newcomers, my priorities don't provide time to respond to all of that you say here. Instead;
  1. Short answer, you bet it would go, and faster this time.
  2. Read the last section of this for some slight insight.
  3. RTFM in general, a project that has a good starting point somewhere on the Main page.

Musician gets own page[edit]

I moved the musician content to a disambiguated page, this musician is known by some people who are not related to him here in France and had a few TV appearances.

Critics and supporters of the Stern Review[edit]

I've made a fairly minor revision to the article. I felt that it was unnecessary to list supporters and critics of the Stern Review by name. It was also slightly misleading since some of the listed critics are actually supportive of the Stern Review's conclusions. Enescot (talk) 23:05, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
