Book removal[edit]

I removed the book added by another user because he had added the same book to a number of articles. I view this practise as a form of spamming--directing people to outside resources (i.e. advertising them) without making substantive contributions to the WP page. Moreover, I'd prefer to do away with the 'books about Bea' section entirely, because such sections are given over to such spamming. Carl.bunderson (talk) 21:54, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I have not read that book to know if it is relevant to Bea. Has anyone here actually read that book to know? The criterion should probably be the relevance, and that can not be determined from the cover. Is there a book review for it? That might say somethng too. The other two books are highly relevant because they are directly about him. History2007 (talk) 22:17, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
I guess I'm very hard on including thigs like this. I find it unnecessary. If it is a worthwhile piece, the person adding it can make a substantive edit to the article, referenced from the work they want to include, then it may be included. I don't doubt that they're relevant works, I just don't think we need sections such as this. Carl.bunderson (talk)
Ok, but please let us hear from those who have read that martin book. Thanks. History2007 (talk) 22:46, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
The Martin book is now listed twice. Once under Books about Bea, and then further down under Biography. I should think once was enough. Mannanan51 (talk) 22:31, 2 October 2012 (UTC)Mannanan51
