Please don't remove interesting material from articles. It's annoying.

Spent 15 minutes looking for that physique section in the Phelps article because someone else referenced it. Finally found it under the history of the page...

Please don't be an over analytical dweeb. Learning that information about his unique physique was interesting. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.88.217.116 (talk) 06:01, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

I absoutely agree with the user above. I had to surf through the page's history because of your unnecessary removal. Please try not to remove useful, very interesting and verified information again, it's quite annoying. --93.33.243.98 (talk) 16:21, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
Do I really need to explain why this section, all Phelps' own opinion from his autobiography, is not the right kind of material for an encyclopedia?? Material doesn't stay in articles just because it's interesting to someone. A whole section of the article was devoted to his own writing and opinions about his physique. If this is notable, and it might well be, then numerous independent reliable sources (for example, from people who know what they're talking about re swimming and biomechanics) will be covering it. If you find some, why not put it back in with good quality references? --hippo43 (talk) 01:18, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
Maybe that could justify removing the opinion behind the facts (his physique contributes to helping him swim), but you should have at least left the simple facts about his physique in the article. Also - how is the opinion of one of the best swimmers in the world not a good source on swimming? Can you fathom this? Perhaps the person who is better than anyone else at doing something, is the best source about the topic? Not commentators / spectators / coaches / theorizers.... but the person th e best actually doing it? Idk, maybe it's stupid to listen to Micheal Phelps' opinion on what makes people swim fast. We should ask some real "swim experts" instead that have a degree in biomechanics. Those are the people that really know how to swim fast — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.88.217.116 (talk) 07:39, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
Please read some wikipedia policies about content, sources etc. --hippo43 (talk) 00:18, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
