Close paraphrasing to avoid accusations of biased summaries
I admit that I have closely paraphrased sources in highly controversial articles to avoid conflicts about biased one-sided summaries. I still do not know how to avoid this, except by close paraphrasing. The article in question (Sathya Sai Baba) went to arbitration twice. May be this can be treated in the essay. Andries (talk)
To avoid this, you include a fair use quotation of the actual source in the text of the article, or replace it with a public domain source. Perhaps you can write up a compelling summary of a conflict for the essay. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 10:56, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
