Is alleged myth a conspiracy?[edit]

Something is sort of fishy here in the statement: There was an "urban myth" that the town had banned the film and prohibited it for nearly 30 years, but this was false.[7][8] It later emerged that the film had never been banned in the town.[9] [emphasis mine]. For a start:

  1. Citation [7] and [8], BBC and National Public Radio respective, do not say a word about the myth. On the contrary, they mention the upcoming lifting of the ban with the screening of Life of Brian. This is a deliberate faulty use of reference.
  2. Citation [9] is a defunct BBS Wales site, and is available in an archive here, and I find it quite unimpressive. For one, there is no other verifiable source that mentions Rory Hogan's important discovery that the film was shown in 1981. Even with eyewitness account in the comment, this alone does not preclude that it was not banned afterwards, taking Hogan's claim at face value, i.e., for almost 30 years up to 2009. It simply is not supported by a single shred of secondary evidence.

I think it can be resolved by only Aberystwith people with verifiable source, if any. Until then I am putting the text as what all the available sources unanimously say, that it was truly banned. Chhandama (talk) 12:02, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
