Discussion about external links[edit]

Ratsass5, instead of adding link after link (many of which seem to indicate you have some sort of agenda), maybe you could flesh out the article with some discussion and reference the pages as necessary? Be careful and try to adhere to WP:NPOV. Here are the links I removed from the article:

Boral Controversies[edit]




Thanks for taking the time to track down the links though. Ben 05:10, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Ok Sorry! Thanks I did not notice, no I dont have any agenda its just that I work for Boral and I think the public has the right to know what's going on thats all, besides since I have linked to ACCC and other government articles then I couldnt be more NEUTRAL could I, Ratsass5 (talk) 07:16, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Please see WP:NOT#LINK. If there is useful information in those links that can be added to this article, then please do so. People come to this article to read an article about Boral, not to find a list of links to other sites. As I said before, feel free to flesh out this article using the links above to support anything you write. Ben 14:02, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

I like your Bias Mr Ben do you work for Boral also?, if these links don't point to "useful" information about Boral then what does? these links are self explanetory in their own right. These links are no different to to the Boral homepage, Annual reports, Governance or code of conduct links so why cant the above links be included also?

In case you're worried, I don't work for Boral. I don't have a problem with any of the links appearing in the article either. My problem is with providing just the links. There is less article than there are links, so why not write an article and use the links as references instead of just pasting in link after link? There are plenty of example articles around you can use as a guide, and I would be happy to list a few if you want. Ben 09:51, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Sure thanks Baby991 (talk) 03:09, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Objections to evolution is an article devoted entirely to objections. Each assertion in the article is backed up by a source, as opposed to just attaching a glut of external links at the end of the article. Since the official policy I linked to above states that Wikipedia articles are not meant to be a collection of external links, do you think you can refrain from adding them again and again? Thanks.

What is the "old" Boral that the article refers to? Could a reference link be added please. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.171.241.237 (talk) 09:02, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

USG Boral[edit]

Should there be some information here of the sale of the Boral assets to USG Boral as well as some sort of explanation that USG Boral and Boral are completely seperate organisations. I think that there is a significant amount of confusion in the marketplace that USG Boral is a Subsidiary of Boral which is not the case.MarekJG (talk) 01:27, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
