While there are many unsourced statements (most of them unsourcable and should probably be removed), a quick view of the history today made it clear that one sentence is already a bone of contention, that is:
This appears to have been (and I have, much to my sadness), participated to some extent in a WP:EW, this should be discussed here. I should not have engaged in the EW.
It's my position that the material is (a) part of a biography of living persons, and therefore WP:BLP applies, that (b) the statement is unsourced (and to the best of my abilities I haven't been able to source it, I've tried), and (c) it is contentuous. As a result, the statement should, as I understand the WP:BLP policy, be removed. Comments? disagreements? --j⚛e deckertalk 04:40, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
