Removal of Noel Wauchope from Nuclear power in Australia page?[edit]

Could you please let me know why Noel Wauchope was removed from the list of individuals opposing nuclear power in Australia? --Danimations (talk) 02:55, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Need a reliable source. Something better than a blog. --Pete (talk) 03:18, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

In this case, the person in question is a blogger and opinion writer- the names of two of her websites were mentioned prior to your deletion. --Danimations (talk) 05:38, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

If the only source we have for a statement is a blog mention, then it's probably not notable enough for inclusion in an encyclopaedia. If it's a big deal, there will be good secondary sources. And, just quietly, but how inane is a list of individuals opposing nuclear power? That would probably number in the hundreds of BLPs here. If it's just a few you want to include, then they must be especially notable, to be selected for inclusion. Again, there would be no shortage of reliable sources fo you to choose from. --Pete (talk) 06:01, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

I took your advice on board and renamed the sub-section to 'Independent activists and campaigners' which helps narrow the field. It does deserve expansion, but not the extent of hundreds, as you point out. --Danimations (talk) 06:14, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Well, good on you. I don't particularly care about anything there beyond the sourcing. --Pete (talk) 06:26, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Rabbit Proof Fence[edit]

Thank you for your defense of my Windshuttle additions. I only just saw them. The area needs proper analysis but has become way too political in both directions. I have added something to Talk. Tuntable (talk) 23:23, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
