I would definitely consider NPR a reliable source.
Do wikipedia entries on people include their titles?
This page has been repeatedly vandalized by the same user. What steps can be taken to prevent this from continuing? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bigtimebeagle (talk • contribs) 06:20, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
It seems that this page is being edited again with clearly nonobjective statements about the subject's family. This information is poorly sourced and seems to violate the BLP guidelines. I can't make the changes myself as I am not familiar enough with Wikipedia's rules and guidelines to be confident that my changes would be valid. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 06:15, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
Is there a secondary source available for his birth name? I see that it's being disputed whether to include it or not. I'm open to other opinions, but I would suggest leaving it out unless there's a good secondary source available. Mark Arsten (talk) 02:21, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
- Birth names are routinely included in articles, and there is no reason to exempt this. But I agree, a more reliable source needs to be found. --Dmol (talk) 04:54, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for this discussion. Wikipedia's general philosophy for BLP is to err to the side of conservatism. So until a non-primary source is located (see WP:BLPPRIMARY), can we agree to omit this information? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 18:23, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
OK... So I am going to go ahead and omit this information. Obviously, if a reputable secondary source is found, then please edit the article accordingly. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 04:03, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
