Birthdate[edit]

I deleted the birthdate a while back because Ross said on his show that it was incorrect, but it has since been restored. Since I'm the person who put it there in the first place, I'm going to delete it again until a better source than me can be found. Richard K. Carson (talk) 02:56, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

I finally looked for and found Ross's birthday (see this) and added it to the article. -- Ssilvers (talk) 05:33, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Recent edits[edit]

On 7 February, on a discussion of Newt Gingrich's staff maliciously editing Wikipedia articles, Dave Ross and Luke Burbank wondered on-air how easy it was to edit Wikipedia articles. Luke bet Dave that Dave Ross's own article would be edited by someone within the next few minutes due to the mention on the show. Thus the large number of non-constructive edits on the page. This mention is at the end of the 10:00am - 11:00am podcast on the linked page, and the reaction is on the next hour's podcast. -- Arthur Allen 04:36, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Ah! That clears it up. Thank you, Arthur - I just listened to the broadcast that you linked to. Interestingly, upon being told that COI editing was prohibited on Wikipedia (an overstatement on Luke's part), Dave understood and strongly defended the COI policy. But Dave underestimated the number of jokers who might edit Wikipedia. -- Ssilvers (talk) 05:22, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
