'His name "Pierre" is a French form of the name Peter'[edit]

Relevant? Not. Recommend this line be removed from the article.Toddsschneider (talk) 18:37, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

Absolutely! (I mean, yes, I mean, no, not relevant.) However, I'm doing more controversial editing and the Imperial sycophants who now dominate en.Wikipedia will probably reverse whatever I do. Hopefully you or someone does it as an isolated edit. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.168.237.156 (talk) 12:54, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Wealth[edit]

I'm removing this: "He is the second richest person of Iranian descent, following Pallonji Mistry at $9.7 Billion (96 on Forbes List) who is a Parsi Zoroastrian.[9]"

Omidyar is of Iranian heritage. Mistry is Indian, born in India: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pallonji_Mistry Thus this statement is factually false. The author of this statement needs to verify who, of Iranian hertiage, if anyone, is wealthier than Omidyar, or state Omidyar is the wealthiest person of Iranian heritage. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hardwarefreak (talkcontribs) 03:13, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Parsi means Persian, more specifically a term for Indians of Persian descent. Zoroastrianism is the Persian religion of 'classical' times. Iranian means, in its narrow meaning, Persian. In a wider meaning, it could happily replace the acceptable 'Indo-European' or the unacceptable (due to the frowned-upon Nazi episode previous to the 1000-year empire project acquiring new masters) 'Aryan'.
I would love to know specifically how the excised passage is factually false.

That edit (two paragraphs ending 'how the excised passage is factually false.') was mine--I forgot to sign it. I have now also removed some additional comments of mine that were off-topic but more importantly, they could have been misunderstood to be making outrageous allegations against Omidyar and/or Mistry. In fact I had drifted completely off-topic and was merely speculating about why anyone would make an issue of denying someone's Iranian heritage.--Alkhowarizmi (talk) 04:33, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

New news site announced[edit]

NY Times interview and I'm sure other WP:RS talk about his collaboration with Glen Greenwald to create " a large, general-interest news site with a focus on investigative and government accountability reporting. " If someone wants to do work of putting in info. Meanwhile it's here anyway. User:Carolmooredc 02:50, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
