Category:Leftist terrorist organizations[edit]

  • The mere existence violates NPOV policies. I'm perversely amused that whoever saw fit to create this category didn't see fit to create a Category:Rightist terrorist organizations -- Jmabel | Talk 02:09, Oct 25, 2004 (UTC)

  • Keep, as above. (And yes, someone should add rightist groups) — Bill 09:39, 29 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep --ChrisRuvolo 16:42, 30 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep - Terrorism is well defined, and these categories are a natural extension. Nominations is part of extreme agenda-pushing and POV warring within WP. -- Netoholic @ 07:05, 2004 Oct 31 (UTC)

  • DELETE. Obviously POV title. (How do you like "Category:Jewish terrorist organizations"?) HistoryBuffEr 03:04, 2004 Nov 1 (UTC)
  • Keep. What is wrong with a category called Jewish terrorist organizations? I don't think that would be a POV problem. NeoJustin 01:00, Nov. 2, 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete - Obviously POV title unless all these organisations clearly refer to themselves as terrorists. --Axon 14:10, 5 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. The term "terrorist" expresses a POV in all cases. John Tinker 22:53, 5 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. - POV problem as superbly described by John Tinker, however I can see the problem now: Some terrorist categories will be deleted for NPOV and others not, which would make the discussion even more obscene. I think there should be an overall vote on the use of the word "terrorist" as opposed to the individual plucking of the groups. Why are we each voting 10 times when we are saying one thing that applies ten times? Tarek 07:23, 14 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete the category. There's no place for POV-laden lists of "terrorists", and I seriously doubt whether any of these organisations would accept the allegation of "terrorism". Shorne 12:20, 14 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete. Both leftist and terrorist are pov. helohe (talk) 15:08, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
