Sorry I thought the external links would be enough as references. Put the links in the text. Should not be deleted now. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Markfinnern (talk • contribs) 16:30, April 18, 2010 (UTC)
I think the section on his leaving the show should be removed or altered
I don't see that there's a direct correlation to the incident where Adam got shocked and his departure. Adam only says the producer is no longer with the show. I can't find any other evidence linking the two events. G051051 (talk) 20:24, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
This article contains defamatory material
|A requested edit by an editor with a conflict of interest was declined. A reviewer felt that this edit would not improve the article.|
As has been pointed out by other's this article defames Peter Rees. He did not intentionally electrocute Adam Savage and in addition he did not leave the show shortly after the event. Changes were attempted that include links to the date of the incident and the date of the Rees' departure from the series. This material was extensively footnoted. These were changed back to the defamatory material within two weeks.
Additional material was added with respect to ratings for the series. All is factually accurate and footnoted. This material is also deleted. The post should read.
- Since your COI edit request, the article has been edited and it no longer defames Peter Rees. (Also, YouTube, LinkedIn and Wikipedia itself - and possibly other sources mentioned in the collapsible section - are not reliable sources.) --18.104.22.168 (talk) 15:34, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
I have deleted the statement connecting his departure with the shoch incident. Per WP:BLP unless extremely well sourced, it should be removed immediately. The cited source is useless: YouTube can't be used for this purpose and as the poster in a previous thread says there is no statement in the YouTube clip which makes a causal link between the two.

- Removal of the claim seems a reasonable action. In that video Savage refers to the then producer who has since left the show, but does not mention Rees by name. Even though it's likely that he was referring to Rees, since he was the producer at the time, we can't rely on circumstantial evidence. --AussieLegend (✉) 08:41, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
