Woah woah woah! What's all this that's appeared? Biased, you could say!

- There's been no 'bailing out' by anyone - chance would be a fine thing. The Saint has advertising contracts with the Students' Union, and always has, but most student newspapers do, and in fact the Union is charged lower rates than other organisations of its size. As for the Rector's Fund, yes, The Saint has received grants, along with many student groups in St Andrews - it is the function of the Fund, after all.

- The Association NEVER bought The Saint new computers! There was a meeting between the editor and the Union, and the points made by the Union were taken on board - their arguments did have merit, despite their reaction being over the top - and the Union may have attempted to exercise some editorial control, but it was never granted. Not a single part of The Saint has ever been 'sent upstairs' for checking or approval.

- The 'genitalia issue' - It was never proved conclusively whether it was real or not. The statement that there was a police investigation - a 'drawn-out' one at that! - is fantasy. The police did not contact The Saint about the matter.

Overall, someone has a bit of a vendetta. The year in question was a difficult one for The Saint, and many controversial things happened, but Wikipedia is not the place to have this argument. Claims of Union editorial control and police investigations are absolute nonsense. Also, I note the author of the new additions has executed a similar hack-job on the Association's own wiki page.

I guess the author of this is on Facebook, so I ask that you email me if you have any questions about what actually goes on in the Saint office. I'm interested to know who you are. Andrew Keenan, editor.

Image:Saintcover111.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

references[edit]

wikipedia should be avoided as a reference. rather, references should be external and verifiable, not to mention reviewed. FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 22:28, 29 July 2012 (UTC)
