  • Delete. Common name makes it hard to verify, but even the accomplishments claimed on his cv don't sound too notable. But we should probably also de-link his name, and most the other names at Ehmphasis, or we'll keep repeating this. Niteowlneils 23:12, 26 Apr 2004 (UTC)

  • Possibly keep. Fatal Ruminate Redundant article, subject already covered in 'Who's Who in Canada'. Minor celebrity in Toronto only, not a well-known author. Most likely added due to Ehmphasis connection or due to charity work.
  • The court case may be worth keeping if it became a famous case, but other than that I don't see anything to make him interesting. Wiwaxia 07:22, 28 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: vanity, nobody in particular. The so-called "landmark case involving libel/slander on Usenet", Simpson vs. Savoie, yields 0 hits. Makes me think it wasn't much of a landmark. Wile E. Heresiarch 08:24, 1 May 2004 (UTC)Reply[reply]
