Development of article[edit]

I am sorry, Ssilvers, but your 3-paragraph LEAD section reads like a vanity page written by the article subject himself. I don't doubt Romm is "notable" in the general publicistic sense, but that's hardly an excuse to write an article in this style. Noting that not only you are the main contributor here but that you also uploaded the photograph, I cannot help but wonder whether you know Romm personally and are in some way suffering from a conflict of interest. I am just saying that an article written by a disinterested neutral party would read very differently. Not only that, but you aren't even doing Romm a favour by working to keep this article in a form that has readers' bullshit alerts going off. I cannot begin to read this page without thinking "obvious vanity article". If you are in any way personally involved with the article subject, you should excuse yourself from editing and watch disinterested parties clean it up for you (while pointing out merely factual errors, of course). I am posting this here as a friendly reminder from a fellow edits-in-the-six-digits Wikipedian and in appreciation of your "doing the right thing" userbox. So, do the right thing and stop messing with an article if you have a COI. --dab (𒁳) 07:37, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

I do know Romm, but I have no family, financial or business connections with him. I do not believe that I have a WP:conflict of interest with respect to this article. I have known Romm for many years, but have seen him little in recent years. I saw Romm in 2007 and asked if I could take that photo of him for the article, and he said yes. I am not much of a photographer and would be pleased if someone has a better, or more current, free photo of Romm. I note that this is a WP:Good Article, which means that it has been thoroughly reviewed by a disinterested reviewer who found its content to be neutrally written and did not object to its style, as you can see from the GA review record. I just reviewed the Lead, and streamlined it a bit. I believe that it is a neutrally-written overview of the article and complies with WP:LEAD. Of course, anyone and everyone is welcome to improve the article. -- Ssilvers (talk) 08:33, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
