Protesting the deletion of oil sludge-prone engines list
Regarding the removal of the affected engines list that was made in this edit: 23:14, 24 March 2009 Gump Stump ... (remove list, spam, how-to, tag fact) No discussion first? Seems that was a fairly major decision that probably deserved some discussion (i.e. the deleted list wasn't relevant? The Center for Auto Safety isn't an acceptable reference?) I think it's appropriate to have a list of affected entities - similar to how the Ford Pinto is linked within the Car fire article. I do agree the external links were mostly junk - Castrol Oil and the MSN Autos links were spam, & datatown.com/chrysler is an outdated mess. OilSludge.com was removed too, okay if you must, but perhaps it would be appropriate to link at least a few of the main resources that are listed on OilSludge.com -- i.e. the "Sludged" section of the Center for Auto Safety & the 2007 NYT article ...
