Peacock terms, POV and trivia[edit]

I added a photo and ended up dredging up a lot of POV "Peacock terminology" from this article. As an encyclopedia, we are to educate and impart knowledge. It's cool that we get to show people how wonderful some of these musicians' music really is, but it must be done with a Neutral Point Of View, otherwise known as NPOV. Promotional wording is only OK when it's something outside crtics have said in reliable references. Also, when there are good quotes, we can't just copy and paste from the text online. It will leave those slanted looking quotation marks, and that, by itself is copyright infringement. Some editors come along and painstakingly remove each one of those quickly pasted offending marks so we may get on with seeing the article flourish. Please try to keep material noteworthy. Finally, the article's list of sampled music from Rushen borders upon being a trivia section, and really needs to be merged into the text more. Thanks for putting in your time- let's get this one in check before it becomes a problem!! --Leahtwosaints (talk) 21:58, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

I don't know, the page history has an enormous amount of content that's been removed because nobody could find the time to add sources. I would like to see this material added back with citations. Viriditas (talk) 10:09, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
