There is far too much text in this article that has little to do with Sauron, more to do with the plot of the Lord of the Rings. I think we need to look at shortening it considerably. GimliDotNet(Speak to me,Stuff I've done) 19:19, 29 November 2014 (UTC)
I'm calling WP:RS on the blurb about Alexandr Nemirovsky and the suggested Hurrian source of "Sauron". The referenced webpage is an amateurish self-published page by someone with no chops as a Tolkien scholar. The chance resemblance to a Hurrian phrase is at best a mere curiosity, at worst aggrandizing and misleading. I propose removing this unless someone weighs in. -- Elphion (talk) 15:55, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
Agreed, looks similar to the claims from a few years ago that Boromir was Bulgarian in origin. Seems anyone with access to a web page can claim to be a 'scholar' these days. GimliDotNet(Speak to me,Stuff I've done) 17:46, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
This phrase appears in "Allusions in other work" in the first paragraph, discussing King's mythos. Does King use this misspelling, or can we correct this to "sigil"? -- Elphion (talk) 12:48, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
Mezigue has rendered this moot () by deleting that sentence as unsourced. -- Elphion (talk) 16:06, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
This article is missing important information on the character's critical reception, namely critic's reactions to the character, major polls, surveys, that list the character as a major literary villain. These need to be added into the article in order for it to completely cover the scope of its subject and meet wikipiedia's standards of a well developed article.--Paleface Jack (talk) 18:28, 7 December 2015 (UTC)
