Booth Ford[edit]

Is she any relation to the famous Booth Family? If not some positve statement to that effect seems warranted. 74.78.162.229 (talk) 08:26, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Hazel book[edit]

That Hazel book Love Is The Reason For It All...The Shirley Booth Story that the authors or their publicists have tried to put in here with promotional language isn't even available yet -- not even for pre-order on Amazon, neither by full title, partial title, ISBN number, or even just "Shirley Booth." If/when this book comes out, it would be worth nothing, but as of now, this is both pre-publication publicity and WP:CRYSTAL. --Tenebrae (talk) 02:49, 10 May 2008 (UTC) If Tenebrae insists on removing the "Love is the Reason" biography, which is available (I ordered a copy - it's being shippd to me today), then Tucker's reference is also advertising and should be removed using Tenebrae's argument as repeated below: "The other policy in play is that Wikipedia is not to be used for advertising or promotion. There is a huuuuge temptation among some people or businesses to try to use Wikipedia in that way. Is advertising informative? Does it bring useful information to the public? Many times yes. But it's primary purpose is to sell a product, and using Wikipedia as free advertising is not fair or right or in accordance with Wikipedia's stated policies. So, how does Wikipedia try to prevent this? One of the single most concrete ways is to disallow links to commercial sales sites. So if the only proof that a product exists is one Web site selling it, we can't link there. And without a citation, we can't state something as fact. There's a larger issue involved that speaks to the heart of Wikipedia's own validity and credibility -- we cannot allow claims without citations. I'm sure you see the importance in an encyclopedia not allowing claims without valid citation."
