Split off section for those separated from the movement[edit]

Curious about David P. Goldman, I took a look at his article and noticed the "LaRouche movement" box at the bottom. He's a former member of that group, but left (or was just kicked out), and it seemed unfair to imply, as this template seemed to do, that he's some kind of a current member. That also seems to be a BLP problem. So I looked at the articles for others listed in that "People" section and found a total of four that seem to be no longer part of the LaRouche movement and put them all in the separate section. Listing them in a simple "People" section would be a bit like putting Whittaker Chambers, James Burnham and The God that Failed writers in a "Communist movement" template and placing that at the bottom of each article. It's just misleading. -- JohnWBarber (talk) 04:17, 14 April 2010 (UTC) One other thing: I called the new section "People separated from the movement", which isn't very graceful wording. Perhaps "Former members" might be a better title, but I thought some readers might confuse that with deceased members. If someone wants to change it to "Former members" or something else, please feel free. -- JohnWBarber (talk) 04:28, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

You also have Roy Frankhouser and Jeremiah Duggan who were never members of the group, but got on the template by virtue of being "linked" to it in the press. Actually, Gunnarson fits that description also. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Know your cuts of meat (talkcontribs) 00:25, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
