Article state[edit]

Whoever wrote this article ought to be ashamed of themselves. I know nothing about Skerrit's career, but you must know you can't use Wikipedia to publish unsourced defamtaory material such as this article mainly consisted of. Intelligent Mr Toad (talk) 10:31, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

I've reverted to a sourced, neutral version prior to the work done by a new editor through January. Further violations will result in blocks. Tony Fox (arf!) 17:14, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Seems like this keeps happening, and from similar IPs. I've recently reverted back to the last "wiki-appropriate" version, but the same text dump keeps getting put in. Apologies for flooding the revision history with my quick-draw reverts.  Amit  ►  20:06, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
September 2010, same text-dump was added back to the article. The entire text was unsourced, and since this is the same text that keeps getting added (albeit from different anonymous IP users), my gut reaction is that it is blatant copyright violation, which according to Wikipedia policy, should be reverted immediately. I have done so. Please either source the material that is trying to be added (and if you get a chance, Wiki-fy the style), or refrain from adding copyrighted material in the future. Thanks!  Amit  ►  18:17, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

I went through linking this page to other articles in Wikipedia but as I read though I began thinking that this was an essay or someone just copied an article from somewhere else and added it to Wikipedia. I would rewrite the article but time is against me. Someone please fix this. This article seemed biased.

Sources modified on Roosevelt Skerrit[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just attempted to maintain the sources on Roosevelt Skerrit. I managed to add archive links to 4 sources, out of the total 4 I modified, whiling tagging 0 as dead.

Please take a moment to review my changes to verify that the change is accurate and correct. If it isn't, please modify it accordingly and if necessary tag that source with {{cbignore}} to keep Cyberbot from modifying it any further. Alternatively, you can also add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page's sources altogether. Let other users know that you have reviewed my edit by leaving a comment on this post.

Below, I have included a list of modifications I've made:
