I hope the horse I am beating is still alive: we
have to be absolutely
ruthless about removing "I think I heard it somewhere"
pseudo-information from Wikipedia, and especially from biographies.
We don't have the resources to this without straight deleting about
95%+ of bios. <i>And that still wouldn't solve the problem</I>
Why wouldn't it solve the problem?
Personally I'd lean toward "deleting" (in reality the information is
still there) 95%+ of bios (by hand, not automatically), if that's
really what's necessary.
People who are
fighting the good fight here are sometimes threatened
with a trip to ArbCom. They need our support, though.
If the people dealing with copyvios can stay within the rules and be
effective so can the BLP people.
So you think it's possible to remove "95+ of bios" without violating
the three revert rule? Yeah right.
