More notable residents[edit]

There seems to be a serious regrowth of so called notable residents with little description about their connection with Salisbury. I propose a further pruning, indeed extermination, of this endless and largely irrelevent list. Comments please. Richard Avery (talk) 22:41, 27 December 2017 (UTC)

What about Sergei Skripal? He settled down in the town in 2011, wasn't he?--Porbóllett (talk) 15:19, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

Apparently he only became notable on March 10. The reason seems to be because he was the subject of a possible assassination attempt. If this is true then why isn't his daughter, Yulia, also notable. The idea of so-called notable people associated with towns, cities or villages is unnecessary and absurd. There are citations of authors referring to Salisbury or people just visiting Salisbury. Where does it end? Richard Avery (talk) 09:04, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
I agree they themselves do not belong in the notable residents part, but the assassination attempt is itself an internationally notable event that does deserve a mention. Polyamorph (talk) 09:10, 6 April 2018 (UTC)
A wikilink to Poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal should certainly be made from this article. Perhaps under a new section "notable events"? Polyamorph (talk) 09:23, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

A link to the wiki article has been added.NEDOCHAN (talk) 08:11, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

That's not how you add links to wikipedia articles, the existing wikilink I had created already did the job.Polyamorph (talk) 08:14, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

Sorry- didn't spot that you had hyperlinked- my mistake.NEDOCHAN (talk) 09:32, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

No problem NEDOCHAN. Best Polyamorph (talk) 10:25, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

New / In the headlines[edit]

The title given matters not a jot: the content still falls foul of WP:NOTNEWS. William Avery (talk) 09:13, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

No prob- changed to make it more relevant. My mistake calling it news. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Coldroses (talkcontribs) 09:21, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

No, please stop. you have been reverted a number of times by a number of different editors. You are in the wrong, your section does not belong in this article. 1) There is an existing article on the Nerve agent poisoning HERE, and 2) wikipedia is not the news, READ THIS!.Polyamorph (talk) 10:20, 11 May 2018 (UTC)
