Result: Consensus for delisting DragonZero (Talk · Contribs) 12:49, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

The article contains recently added material that reads as a product advertisement. Examples include the entire "Version 21" section, which includes statements such as<

"Norton 360 is the ultimate antivirus solution developed on SONAR technology, which is able to detect any threat, block it, and remove it, thanks to three out of five layers of shields: Threat Monitoring, Threat Removal, and Network Defense, the last one dealing with online threats before they can actually reach the user’s computer. Protection is also granted through analyzing the behavior of known menaces in such a way that staying safe from phishing activities is a child’s play."

Fixing it is beyond my capabilities, but it is an egregious violation of neutrality etc.

Thanks,

  • Delist this article has tags, unsourced sections, and prose written as mentioned above. It needs a significant copyedit to bring it up to scratch. Unfortunately, it appears the two lead contributors are no longer very active. --LT910001 (talk) 11:26, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Delist - I agree that a lot of the article is written like an advertisement: "It adds some new features to this popular all-in-one suite..." The unsourced sections is not an issue, because they don't contain statements that the GA criteria require citations for. The prose is clear, but biased.--FutureTrillionaire (talk) 19:36, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
