Not just a SPA
Note the complexity of these topics from 1999-2007, the high credibility and quality of the source references (sighted and verifiably linked), the breath/scale objective import of topic areas addressed but through neutral, factual articles about multinational corporations, international front-page news reported events, and rather unusual & documented censorship of same. Also references on extensive government actions, court judgment findings, and fact-referenced information about prominent notable individuals are each of value for the Wikipedia community and Encyclopedia. Additional contributions by Wikipedia's collective wisdom, alternate perspectives, sourcing additional objective facts and information, ideally with source reference links, are highly encouraged. I'm new to Wikipedia so please be excuse my learning formats, protocols, and people; but the information contributed is objective, credible source verified, and notable. Please do not casually dismiss or simply delete.
Notable Individuals and Source References
A tag has been placed on Larry Sonsini, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable, that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. ???
Larry Sonsini is clearly a notable individual. He is a prominent attorney mentioned in myriad credible verifiable publications including The New York Times quote: "LARRY W. SONSINI, Silicon Valley’s most feared and sought-after lawyer" [], also often mentioned in the The Wall Street Journal [], and ranks eighth on the Forbes Midas Wikipedia list of "Technology's Top Dealmakers" []. Larry Sonsini is also personally referenced as a notible individual in the Wikipedia Article on the also notable individual Viet D. Dinh the former Assistant Attorney General of the United States where Larry Sonsini is attributed as a individual in the Wikipedia article on the HP spying scandal and a is related to the article on stock Options backdating. He is also a founder and current active Chairman of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati. Sonsini is personally notably referenced in many Widipedia articles already, these collective are why the subject is notable and should be included in Wikipedia. Not just deleted.
US Censorship by Google
Welcome to Wikipedia. We invite everyone to contribute constructively to our encyclopedia. However, adding content without citing a reliable source, as you did to Censorship by Google, is not consistent with our policy on attribution and verifiability. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. --ZimZalaBim (talk) 07:23, 28 March 2007 (UTC)- Vwt note ZimZalaBim has retired from Wikipedia and does not respond to talk dialog.
The Wikipedia Article on Censorship by Google was added a referenced attributed example The Wall Street Journal Newspaper articles and photographs (international printed newspaper front covers, thus public domain text and images). These can not be found in Google News Search or Google Image Search. These, like the China reference, are examples of US news and images, censored by Google. This example shows Google does not only censor China news and images. This is a notable, reference attributed, credible publication's link to objective neutral referenced facts and images (newspaper covers and court judgments), censored from Google, thus documenting censorship by Google in the Wikipedia article on Censorship by Google.
The attribition source cited is The Wall Street Journal online, generally considered reliable. The verifiable attribution, including online links are to the Wall Street Journal, published news and images. Censorship of this myCFO news article and the front page cover images of myCFO's board of directors are verifiably censored from Google News, Google Image, and Google in the US. Apparently this extensive research report Wikipedia has deleted too, but this news is still on The Wall Street Journal online and international print editions from March 2007 [] .
MyCFO Corporation and source reference article in The Wall Street Journal
If you disagree with the article's deletion, you may seek an independent deletion review. OK, administrators who have deleted this article do not respond to talk...
This Wikipedia is article entry is describing in a NPOV 'myCFO' as a substantial operating corporation. myCFO, in operations since 1999, is discussed in detail in a verifiable external link to a credible authenticated reference source article in the Wall Street Journal, a reliable reference source publication with objective substance and well established edited reference fact checking credibility.
The company myCFO is tax accounting and financial services firm started in 1999 to help wealthy Silicon Valley individuals manage their fortunes. Most (but not all) of myCFO's assets and operations were sold to Harris Bank in late 2002 and now operate as Harris myCFO providing the same services. myCFO is the subject of a March 6th 2007 Wall Street Journal Front Cover Investigative Report . Regarding notability, this 2007 WSJ article follows onto the related October 17 2005 press release "The Justice Department and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) today announced the filing of a superseding criminal indictment in the largest criminal tax case ever filed." []
myCFO Inc. founded in 1999, is presently partly operating as Harris myCFO, and is a substantial multinational multifacited corporation, involved in many complex activities including financial services, accounting, banking, tax advice, and tax preparation. myCFO is easily verifiable and relates to a range of topics. The Wikipedia article, the only one describing myCFO, is directly attributed to a reliable newsprint and online credible objective reference source, The Wall Street Journal specfically a March 6, 2007 Internationally Published Newspaper Front Page Cover Fold Story (thus public domain headline, news text, and cover image are also public display copyright fair use with attribution). The reference article is externally linked to a source reference attribution [] This attributed WSJ article is itself linked to the wsjonline.com were attributed references used for the investigative report can be found, and the wsj even provides further online links directly to original source documents referenced and cited in the WSJ source article. The WSJ myCFO article references many corporations and individuals who each meet Wikipedia notability criteria. This same WSJ article also references multiple US Government agencies and public record actions specifically referenced by the WSJ article and notable. Notable facts are reported in a neutral point of view that merits this article about myCFO to be included in Wikipedia. Vwt is the editor originating this article’s references to the 2007 Wall Street Journal and the online linked reference sources. My recomendation is to consolidate and merge myCFO related references into one article: "myCFO" which is distinct from, but related to Harris myCFO.
