Revision as of 18:15, November 20, 2012

I feel it is inappropriate and whitewashing not to mention the Kevin Clash at all on the wiki when we have such esteem in the Muppet community and should be unbiased. The notability is there and other scandals such as Calloway's unfortunate mental breakdown were mentioned even though his problems were more carefully guarded and did not appear in nearly as many newspapers or internet sources than Clash did.

Even if you do not believe the accusations are true; it already has had an effect on the potrayal history of certain characters. And if you don't publish an unbiased version of the events, you may be thought as censoring opinions and whitewashing Clash which I do not the wiki deserves. Therefourgh, I believe an unbiased version of the events should be published; one which does not skew in favor of Clash or the accuser and gives an authoritiave history of the events which the casual reader can understand.

Collaboration like this is very possible in a place where thousands of people are active every month and no conflict could happen if everything is done correct. So I extend an open arm for the moderators and casual users to edit my contribution to the homepage and add to the Elmo and Kevin Clash page rather than delete it like what you've been currently been doing. As a member of Wikipedia, I can state that this philosophy has worked well and have been one of the chief reasons for it's sucess over eleven years. Please comment on this as a type of collaboration forum instead of shouting at me with so-called "policy" or "rules" preventing this. Thank you.
