Deletion and reference tags.
If I add a tag to your page requesting deletion, or references,
PLEASE DO NOT START A CONVERSATION ABOUT THE DELETION HERE.
Please follow the instructions on the tag, and put the required info into the deletion discussion, or on the article's talk page.
It makes much more sense to keep discussions with the article, rather than having readers follow it across several users' talk pages.
Hello Dmol, I would like some advice please? Two(?) editors are going through the list on People who disappeared mysteriously adding the wording "Disappearance of". I have reverted several times, as the title of the article already states this and the links to the names are valid. It is not too important as only the names appear in the article and I have no intention of edit warring, but these edits do seem unnecessary. Would be grateful for your input.

==Clue Bot NC== Oops wrong button that I used above. But same question. Does your being an environmentalist mean you oppose hunting? Serious question thanks.Clue Bot NC (talk) 22:01, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
Can you explain why you deleted the Steven Newing addition despite me providing you with a link to an article from Norfolk police? I suppose your one of these serial deleters who have to fiddle about nitpicking because you have nothing better to do and would rather your own self aggrandizement got in the way of the truth about Steven Newing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aquaplain (talk • contribs) 16:24, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
Deleting others Talk Page Comments, Jeremy Kewley
Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, talk pages are meant to be a record of a discussion; deleting or editing legitimate comments, as you did at Talk:Jeremy_Kewley, is considered bad practice, even if you meant well. Even making spelling and grammatical corrections in others' comments is generally frowned upon, as it tends to irritate the users whose comments you are correcting. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Although like you I question the legitimacy of the comment it oughtn't to be removed unilaterally with no comment left. SPACKlick (talk) 12:50, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
- Let's look at the policy then shall we?
- Cautiously editing or removing another editor's comments is sometimes allowed, but normally you should stop if there is any objection - There was clearly objection, he reinstated it.
- If you make anything more than minor changes it is good practice to leave a short explanatory note such as "[possible libel removed by ~ ~]" - No such note was left.
- Some examples of appropriately editing others' comments:...Removing harmful posts, including personal attacks, trolling and vandalism. This generally does not extend to messages that are merely uncivil; deletions of simple invective are controversial. Posts that may be considered disruptive in various ways are another borderline case and are usually best left as-is or archived. - So policy says this action is controversial and other methods should be used.
- Your action was clearly against policy. It is not permissible to remove material just because you are offended by the use of the word "cunt". SPACKlick (talk) 13:06, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
