Gamble House[edit]

The tone problems have not been addressed, so I have restored the {{tone}} tag. Please discuss at Talk:Gamble House#Hyperbole?. Mike Dillon 17:51, 9 December 2006 (UTC)


Please read Wikipedia:Manual of Style (links). There is no need to link every occurence of a term to an article. In the Gamble House article, there was already a link to University of Southern California. Moreover, USC does not go to that article! It is a disambiguation page. Please look at the articles you're linking to before blindly adding (redundant) links. The same thing applies to Carmel and Pasadena, which are also disambiguation pages.

Bob Ulrich[edit]

To cure the copyright violation you'd have to write an article from scratch. I recommend picking an article for a similar store and mimicking its setup. - crz crztalk 07:14, 10 December 2006 (UTC)


I reverted the "sex worker" category per WP:BLP. The article only supports the use of the "escorts" category, which is already applied to the article. There was quite a bit of conflict in the past, and this was worked out by consensus to be the best way to handle it. I would not like to see the article, which has been stable for a while, return to edit-war status. Crockspot 18:53, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Beverly Lahaye[edit]

Yes, it is true I edited the page about Beverely LaHaye. Her son Lee is not open about his sexuality and has said numerous times pubicly that he is not gay. This was a rumor started by a blogger who has never offered any proof -- if you go back to the source at, and the miscreant who started the whole rumor you will find that he ofered no proof, ever. So that is why I edited the page, and will continue to do so -- Mikeinlorton 04:56, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

According to the Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons policy:
When information supplied by the subject conflicts with unsourced statements in the article, the unsourced statements should be removed.
As Mikeinlorton points out, the source does not provide any source for its assertion that Lee Lahaye is "openly gay" and cannot be considered an appropriate source of this controversial information (see Wikipedia:Reliable sources). By contraversial I mean "denied by the subject", not that sexual orientation is generally contraversial.
Extra scrunity must be given to the biographies of living people because of the legal issues involved. This applies even in cases where the subject has a reason to lie (cf. Ted Haggard), absent solidly sourced proof that they are in fact lying. Thanks for your understanding. Mike Dillon 17:20, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources.

Speedy deletion nomination of Beth Teper[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg
You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles. If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

A tag has been placed on Beth Teper requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, individual animal(s), an organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject of the article is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} at the top of the article, immediately below the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate), and providing your reasons for contesting on the article's talk page, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. You may freely add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

You may want to read the guidelines for specific types of articles: biographies, websites, bands, or companies. Lionel (talk) 03:18, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
