Court-mandated 12-step program attendance[edit]

What is Stanton Peele's relationship with Rational Recovery? Has Rational Recovery supported these court efforts? Have they responded to or celebrated these court efforts? What do these court decisions mean for Rational Recovery as a movement and an organization? Right now, it's not clear that this section is connected to Rational Recovery. Let's make these connections explicit. Daask (talk) 02:26, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

Please revert (rewrite?) this article to npov and LOCK[edit]

From the second paragraph: " Some assistance is free; a "teaser, if you will. Then, though, this "bait and switch" approach..." No. Uh uh. That's not neutral.

From the third: "Trimpey conjurs this opinion and sells it as fact"

A little further along: "Trimpley is widely dismissed, however he has established a loyal spate of desperate minions."

Are you joking? There's no place for this invective in an encyclopedia article, accurate or not. The colloquial nature alone makes those turns of phrase unacceptable.

I know the last thing this article needs is another anon jumping in the fray, so this clearly requires admin. intervention. Reduction to a stub & locked would be preferable at this point. Embarrassingly bad text here, this is the sort of thing that gets WP made fun of. Fix it.

Charlatan?[edit]

"Trimpey is a controversial figure [...] widely dismissed as a charlatan or cult head figure."

The statement above appears in article with nothing to back it up. Statements such as this:

  • need supporting citation(s);
  • reflect a bias that may indicate violation of Wikipedia's NPOV rules; and
  • are potentially libelous if statement is made about living person(s), and may be removed

Please familiarize yourself with basic Wikipedia rules to avoid making the above mistakes, one of which exposes Wikipedia to civil liability and damages (!). Kinkyturnip (talk) 09:30, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

@Kinkyturnip: I was surprised to see this on your user page:

Pet peeve: Leaving messages on entries' talk pages saying "somebody should fix these errors". Well, you found them, so why not show some initiative and fix them yourself?

It was a simple revert of an IP to fix this. Daask (talk) 14:17, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
