Clarkson Secondary Alumni[edit]

"One final comment, and this comes from looking at the rest of the comments posted here, it appears that you think you know a lot. This may not be the case. But I submit that you believe you are correct."

This last comment violates WP:AGF. Citations are necessary because everything on Wikipedia is supposed to be verifiable. In the end, this will only benefit the article. Have a nice day, Snowjam. Oh, and one last comment.. ;) Due to the fragmented discussions on my talk page, you only get one side of the story. So it could very well be that most people who post there think they know more than I do, but don't. In any case, Wikipedia is not a battleground, so I don't really care. I just noticed you added Barbara Turnbull to the section. Looks like she's notable, and if you "have the most respect for all she has, and will continue to, accomplish", I suggest you create an article for her with citations to reliable sources, not personal websites and such. The section is called "Notable alumni". The guide for inclusion on Wikipedia is notability. So basically, add people with articles. I will keep her, but remove Greg Spottiswood, as he is not notable. --Pwnage8 (talk) 10:56, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Mississauga and copyright[edit]

When removing content as a copyright violation, please ensure that it actually is a copyright violation. There are thousands of websites which copy content from Wikipedia, and most satisfy the requirements of the GFDL by adding a disclaimer. Some do not, including irelocate.com (which is clearly and blatantly violating copyright). What's worse is that the company is claiming copyright on work written by others.

Please be more careful in assessing whether there is a copyright violation next time. (BTW: it may well be that the section in question was taken from another website, but it certainly wasn't taken from irelocate). Mindmatrix 14:57, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
