"He has achieved this ambition many times over"
What ambition? To change his name? I think it is a bit unclear. 188.8.131.52 10:11, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
He is clearly notable, meeting criteria #1. He has written many, many articles in peer-reviewed journals, of which the ones I have added are merely a sample. Nominate the article for deletion if you insist, rather than re-adding the tag. ╟─TreasuryTag►stannary parliament─╢ 13:37, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
- Yes of course he is notable, but he is not mentioned once in Wheen's How Mumbo-Jumbo Conquered the World: A Short History of Modern Delusions. Check it out on Google Books. Search for "David Ashworth" or "Perri 6." The words aren't mentioned in the entire book. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:31, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
Why is someone undoing reasonable comments on this item. Pathetic. It is a fact that Peri 6 was not an academic at the time of changing his name because I clearly remember it at the time. He worked for various voluntary groups and then NCVO. I am not going to write this item, mainly because it seems pointless, but those editing and then protecting their flimsy evidence base, should get off their bottoms and do some proper research. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 21:42, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
This heading speaks for itself. Would you employ someone calling himself 6? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:38, 28 January 2012 (UTC) On the other hand, his idiotic renaming of himself is perhaps the only reason anyone would notice him.
Question about sorting
In the past, I have changed the sort order for this talk page to Perri 6. I wonder why it was reverted. I would have thought natural language order would have been fine. Is there a reason or Wiki policy why it is sorted as 6, P or 6, Perri? Would anyone searching for this person use that string? Thank you.--FeanorStar7 (talk) 13:57, 11 December 2010 (UTC)
- People are usually indexed by surname. Tony Blair isn't indexed under 'T' any more than Lily Montagu is under 'L' or Brian Blessed is under 'B' – oh hang on a minute...
Stupid as it is, "6" is this guy's surname. Full stop. ╟─TreasuryTag►Speaker─╢ 14:46, 11 December 2010 (UTC)
