Oregon Petition[edit]

I'm inclined to agree with you that the Oregon Petition article has a POV against the petition. But the way you are trying to make the case won't work. You added a POV tag and an edit summary that asserted the article is biased. Another editor removed the tag because you have not demonstrated that the article is biased. What you should do is go to Talk:Oregon Petition and add a section detailing examples of bias and perhaps suggesting alternatives. The goal is to improve the article so that it is not biased, not just to leave it biased with a box stating that it is biased. Future readers won't simply accept a claim of bias without some explanation about the bias. Sbowers3 13:04, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
