Thorp[edit]

Hi. I noticed your Tone tag at Edward O. Thorp. I do see a bit of puffery. Before I work on the article, I want to make sure I'm not missing anything. Can you tell me your concerns? O3000 (talk) 14:46, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

It just sounded all very wrong tone. Guy probably has done some impressive things but the tone is wrong. A lot of the sources are primary sources and the language is very puffy. Compare the claim he "collaborated with Claude Shannon in creating the first wearable computer.@ With the more complex situation and language described in the article it links toAlasdairEdits (talk) 21:16, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

You can find the relevant information here: http://effective-altruism.com/ea/12z/concerns_with_intentional_insights/ and a related form in another community here: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/secularvoices/2017/08/02/even-after-apology-pro-truth-pledge-still-shrouded-in-deceit/ or even here where he is still actively hiring "marketing assitants" https://www.upwork.com/job/Marketing-Assistant-Long-Term-Full-Time_~0105671ca8dd18381e/ possibly I could have included it in the AFD discussion, but I was more agreeing with other people in the discussion which in any event closed fairly uncontroversially.
