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.

Really, is this necessary?

Admittedly Lereah wrote a lot of real-estate-pumping books and articles, but he's no guiltier than
thousands of others in creating the real-estate bubble. I'd place more blame on the sleazy bankers
and government swells who aggressively encouraged people to speculate using subprime ARMs.

So why does Lereah deserve a BLP that seeks to portray him (repeatedly) as a joke?
He's already being pilloried on Amazon.

Others share your opinion. Here's an edit summary from a while ago:
