Delete POV[edit]

I deleted the following:

In short, Taylor is a widely considered a gifted comedic actress whose success in performance has been varied but often heralded. It is likely that she will continue to collaborate with her husband on future projects.

In Spring of 2003 singer Easter Bradford did a month long performance tour of the United States to promote his new album. He performed a live song which he had written about Taylor (but which was not on the album.) It was meant to be a humourous nod from a fan of her work. He introduced it by explaining he was a fan; it was entitled "Desperate (but Not Serious,)" the same title as an obscure movie in which she starred. The lyrics were:

"First I'll do a kid's show and then I'll do some horror films And then I'll do T.V. guest spots and then I'll do The Brady Bunch And then I'll get a T.V. show and then I'll play an eighties ho And then I'll mary Ben Stiller and that's how I'll get famous"

Not only is it irrelevant, it's highly POV. -- Zoe

I agree to delete. Geraldshields11 (talk) 19:07, 20 October 2015 (UTC)


NO!!! She is 100% Roman Catholic, as well as her parents, and always was, unlike husband, Ben Stiller, who is Jewish.

Please sign your comments. that way Wikipedia is open and transparent. Also, this is original research without a reference. Geraldshields11 (talk) 19:08, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

Confusion with models[edit]

"With a picture however, they are easy to tell apart: Christi is blonde, Cristi is brunette, and Christine is considerably less well endowed and does not pose naked." I moved this sentence to the Talk page as it is unencyclopedic and unnecessary. Olessi 20:48, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

Agreed. Thank you. Geraldshields11 (talk) 19:09, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

magazine covers[edit]

I didn't remove the image in error at all — magazine covers, DVD covers, movie screenshots, etc. should not be used to illustrate the articles of their subjects, except in cases where the source of the cover/screenie/whatever is discussed in detail in the article. As a general rule, while we might tag images of magazine covers as "fair use", they're only fair use when discussing the magazine itself, or that cover particularly. There's no rule that says "magazine cover is automagically fair use anywhere" (a borderline case for magazine cover might be a "Taylor as viewed by the press" section or something).

Given that you are an administrator and your motto - posed on your user page is, and I quote "ignore all rules" - I've decided to ignore all rules. Fair? Michael Dorosh 02:08, 26 April 2006 (UTC)
I'm not speaking as an administrator here, mark you. And one of the things about ignoring all rules is knowing which ones to ignore, and which ones to follow to the letter. There are some rules, like neutrality, being a secondary/tertiary source, and like in this case our copyright policy are rules that get followed to the letter, 'cos a) you never know if we might do something that'll get us sued, and b) respecting copyright is polite. fuddlemark (fuddle me!) 06:05, 26 April 2006 (UTC)
Right, so either "all" means something different than I thought it did, or you're a complete hypocrite. I'm off the check the dictionary but I think I know what I'll find. ;-) Michael Dorosh 14:33, 26 April 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, smileys and the word "hypocrite" don't go together well. In any case, at the time I added IAR to my userpage (it has since changed in weird and disturbing directions), it said: "Ignore all rules, including this one." IAR is not an invitation to ignore important rules, it's a notice that you don't have to put up with unnecessary bureaucracy. In writing an article according to NPOV, NOR and our copyright policy, we're simply ignoring Ignore All Rules, which is prefectly okay :-). fuddlemark (fuddle me!) 03:10, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
Please do not use magazine covers to illustrate an actress. Please add a photograph that is copy-right free. Geraldshields11 (talk) 19:12, 20 October 2015 (UTC)


This article states: "Following The Brady Bunch Movie, Taylor's career advanced rapidly" Unless there's a lot more to her career to date, it appears that she's made a few guest appearances on some TV shows and was given roles in movies made by her husband, culminating in her guest appearance on Hannah Montana earlier this year. Wow, what a meteoric rise in just 15 years. Looks like she may be in the running for the Sondra Locke lifetime achievement award. So, perhaps this non-supported POV claim should be dropped or at least brought more in line with reality - she's had a modest career outside of marrying someone who has had sort of an acting career. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:49, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
