Larry Singer[edit]

I just removed Larry Singer's letter in here as it violates BLP1E and NLT. Obviously,if consensus is against that, I'll yield to it. Thanks @-Kosh► Talk to the VorlonsMoon Base Alpha-@ 18:12, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

Not so great in Germany[edit]

Should a section be added about this loss for the Wikimedia Foundation in Germany? - 2001:558:1400:10:5A7:FD8D:4008:7F68 (talk) 15:11, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Susan L. Burke[edit]

I see a mention of a lawsuit on List of Wikipedia controversies as follows:

September 2013 – Lawyer Susan L. Burke who had represented Iraqi civilians against the private military company Blackwater Inc (now known as Academi) sued to discover the identity of two Wikipedia editors who allegedly inserted misleading information into the Wikipedia article about her and whom she alleged were associates of Blackwater Inc.[244]

Why is there no mention of that lawsuit in this article? 66.97.209.215 (talk) 05:18, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Subpeonas[edit]

I understand many subpeonas requiring information on contributors have been served, (including one against a WP:BOT) - do we have any reliable sources about this? All the best, Rich Farmbrough, 19:23, 3 April 2014 (UTC).

I don't, off-hand. But I expect that this area will be the subject of scrutiny, following this just-published WSJ article regarding Yelp, as well as this one re Yelp subpoenas.--Epeefleche (talk) 19:28, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

AAFM[edit]

I suspect this material was added by AAFM, it is badly written and does not ring true. The "complaint" that they publish on their website is full of misleading claims: for example:

The Wall Street Journal specifies AAFM standards of using [[ACBSP]] and [[ACBSP]] education which represents business schools such as Yale, Harvard, and other Business schools. http://online.wsj.com/public/resources/documents/st_CREDIT1015_20101015.html [Wiki-markup and duplication in the original]


The publication does indeed specify that if you have certain qualifications (including ACBSP) already, AAFM qualifications are yours for a cheque. In other words money changes hands, no teaching and no learning takes place, and you get a diploma.

I have removed the uncited information, it constitutes a BLP violation against the editors involved. All the best: Rich Farmbrough18:15, 18 July 2014 (UTC).
