However, they are not hidden from automobile engines, including the newer, more "environmentally-friendly" electric and hybrid engines. Also, please note that this subforum is meant to be used for discussion of the actual biographical articles themselves; more generalized discussions of BLP policy should be posted in the General Discussion or Bureaucracy forums.

Entertainting debate here:

Basically Bob (CEO of Godaddy) hit the news when he posted a video of him shooting an elephant on the interwebs. This didn't go down to well and generated lots of noise on said interwebs.

For the time being no mention of this in his article, just a big 'this page is biased warning up top', this is likely to last until SlimV or one of her chums notices it.....

Indeedy doo---the "Controversy" section was inserted by an IP address originally.
Then, one "Justbean" got serious about it.

And who is Justbean? All he/she did was fight over Bob Parsons....and create this.
Just another "single-use account" that did one or two very specific things on-wiki, and disappeared. I see 'em all the time.
Same goes for Organicbruce.

Here's the BLP noticeboard discussion.
Before this, Parsons' BLP sat untouched for months.

You may now place your bets on how long it will take some officious twit to permaban ParsonsRep (T-C-L-K-R-D) .
An openly-announced GoDaddy company account that has been editing GoDaddy-related articles since March 2008......
Oh, ye COI, where is thy sting?
