This is a collection of my father's accomplishments, all of which are verifiable.

This article about M. L. Liebler appears to be written or heavily edited by someone who is promoting him, not a neutral party. It is not well-written, showcases his accomplishments more than it describes him or his life. It does not mention his parents, family, except for his two children, says little about his background, life, or him as a person. It is heavily weighted towards his awards, and mentions--as advertisements--upcoming books, which are by now most likely already published; therefore, this is out-of-date.Arwolfe (talk) 01:02, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Inappropriate Self-Promotion[edit]

Either rework heavily, cut down to one third, i.e. wikify, or delete. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:17, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

I agree that this is inappropriate self-promotion. It is nothing more than an advertising page for M.L. Liebler, whoever he is. It doesn't have a single reliable (or even unreliable) third-party source to verify its content. It's also very poorly written. It needs, at the very least, reliable references, or it should be deleted. User:EnglishTea4me (talk)03:28, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

I am more than fine with having my entry deleted. I would rather not be involved with users like EnglishTeame or Arwolfe Arwolfe. I am an accomplished author, professor, recording artist and community arts activist, and I do not need to be validated by a source that I do not allow my students to cite in their papers. For the record, many years ago when Wikipedia was fairly a new thing, my son was moved to create an entry for his well known and widely respected father. Little did he, or I, realize that people wasted their lives obsessing over these entries. If Wikipedia wants to verify my credentials, just put my name in Google or Amazon or most national newspapers. I apologize for creating such a major brouhaha for the Wiki Community. Oi! Most major newspaper search engines. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MLLiebler (talkcontribs) 00:26, 22 November 2011 (UTC)
