Anne Norton[edit]

Listen I know little about this woman and only became involved in relation to another dispute. I removed the "summary" of her work because it was unacceptably pov as well as unsourced, (Please see WP:No Original research for more information on that policy) I have re-inserted the block quote because from the little I know it is the only thing that makes her notable enough for an encyclopedia article. Now if what you say is true that she doesn't believe the somewhat outrageus rumor about the "Straus toga parties" feel free to add context to it, as long as it is properly sourced.

On another note, are you in fact Anne Norton? I would understand if you had come to wikipedia to correct something erroneus and misleading in your biography, as I could see how that would be cause for considerable discomfort. However if you are the actual subject of the article I should tell you it is considered Faux pas to include "the summary of her work" as you put it.

On another note, if you wish it I would support an afd (article for deletion) of the article.- Moshe Constantine Hassan Al-Silverburg | Talk 17:35, 7 June 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for the advice on wikipedia matters. No, I'm not Anne Norton (despite the user name annie, the name of my dog). On the toga parties, Norton says she doesn't believe them in the very quote that you reproduce. Following wikipedia courtesies (which I am just learning) I am not going to keep deleting this quotation, but I would urge you to do so. I understand this passage has been the subject of discussion by contributors to Wikipedia, but Norton's profile in the world of political theory and more generally in intellectual culture (New York Times book review, New York Review of Books, etc.) is marked by issues that have nothing to do with this anecdote. Thanks for the pointers on sourcing. If I have the time, I will look up and select from the hundreds available. annie 19:18, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Brigitte L. Nacos[edit]

She has published significant research documenting the relationship between terrorism alerts and President Bush's popularity. The fact that she is untenured bears further consideration: tenure is increasingly uncommon in academia. There are plenty of tenured faculty with shorter publication references than Ms. Nacos. Her bio should be retained. Dogru144 23:23, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 31[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Patrick Higginbotham, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Robert Little. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Sheldon Wolin[edit]

Hi! You recently changed the entry on this subject to indicate that the subject is deceased. Have you got a citation for that, please? Thanks! 69.47.82.1 (talk) 01:49, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

I knew this man personally and received notice of this death from other friends and family. Because he was a very distinguished political theorist, there will be prominent obituaries soon, I'm sure. There are no published sources yet.

I have removed this. We should never state that a previously living person has died without a reliable published source. Please do not re-add it until a published announcement is made. Voceditenore (talk) 14:58, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
Please restore the death. Here is a cite. I am not sure how to add it. http://coreyrobin.com/2015/10/23/sheldon-wolin-1922-2015/
Hi Annie. That source is a personal blog. I'll restore the death and an accurate date when we have a reliable source for it. Doing otherwise is a serious violation of Wikipedia's policy on biographies of living persons and no original research. We're an encyclopedia, not the source of breaking news. A delay of a few days has no consequences. An error has potentially enormous ones, and there have been several examples in the past. This is one of the recent ones. Voceditenore (talk) 06:47, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
Hi Voceditenore. Appreciate your attention to this item. Please restore information regarding death of Sheldon Wolin. Here is a more credible cite. http://www.princeton.edu/main/news/archive/S44/56/31A32/index.xml?section=topstories
Hi Annie. Another editor re-added the death date after seeing the Princeton announcement, and I've added the announcement as a reference. So it's all good now. Best, Voceditenore (talk) 08:36, 25 October 2015 (UTC)
