NNDB[edit]

Hey looks like another rip-off of an NNDB biography- NNDB had this guy in January 2007, May 9th for wikipedia- nice research, wikipedia! way to cite unverified data.—Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.215.132.232 (talkcontribs) 26 May 2007

As far as I can see there's no stylistic or paraphrasing overlap btw the two- hardly suspicious that biog's of the same individual mention some of the same data...--cjllw ʘ TALK 07:33, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Uncited speculation[edit]

Have removed the following, reads as pure uncited speculation:

Barlow was a deeply closeted homosexual. Internal homophobia and the threat of a public outing may have contributed to his death.

It would need some reliable and notable source making this claim to merit inclusion.--cjllw ʘ TALK 07:28, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
