Image license/copyright problems[edit]

The image currently used (from Commons) is a photograph, apparently of an actor in a theatrical production, and is not old artwork. There is no licensing information--just a source, which also has no license information. I left a note on the talk page there, but could not flag the image since the database is locked at the moment. --Cotinis 15:56, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

More information about the photo is here--it is from 1993, and the licensing is not given. It is clearly not PD-old. I have added a note to the commons talk page --Cotinis 17:12, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

obvious grafitti / vandalism[edit]

the current edition of the article obviously suffers from vandalism, since the formula for 'expected value' reads "(i+am+a+massive+twat)/x". This article needs attention. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:29, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Infobox image[edit]

The Captain John Graunt?

I notice that this edit removes a link to this image of a Captain John Graunt. There was no explanation as to why the image was removed. Does anyone know why?

The assertion that he was a captain seems correct from a quick google search that I did. On the other hand, the guy looks like he is from the 19th century, rather than the 17th.
