Problems[edit]

Concerning material serving as arguments for or against the subject (NPOV) and material that may be construed as "free advertisements" for this political activist organization:

"public radio" program external link: NB: Not clear if, when, and on which public radio stations this program may have been broadcast.

This article should not be constructed as a free advertisement for the political campaign or the founder of the political campaign that is its subject (AASG). Editors must take care to avoid such mis-constructions and to maintain NPOV and to disclose connections between "products" being advertised on websites and webpages that are being linked in "External links" section. One may want to consider removing such links until further verification or reviews of the programs can be located and presented instead of commercial catalog listings. The "non-profit" status of the corporation producing these programs does not mean that the products are not "merchandise" manufactured to promote a political activist campaign or cause. Wikipedia articles are not supposed to include advertisements. --NYScholar 19:00, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Removal of redundancy[edit]

The paragraph that I merged into note 1 was redundant in the earlier version of the article. Note 1 now cites the sources previously in note 2 in a more concise manner.--NYScholar 08:47, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

I tried to clean up the article, removing some things with shaky sources but including others that had reliable sources. I consolidating claims for and against the organization and added a new heading to address the controversy over the redemption program. Even though there still might be "advertising" components I left them for now. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.133.55.160 (talk) 06:08, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
