  • Life under Taliban rule - i don't see anything enciclopedic on this one. It was a piece of news during the Afgan war. It's a very dated article: will it be interesting in 10 years? Muriel Gottrop 11:23 26 Jul 2003 (UTC)
    • I don't understand why you want to delete this. This is history, not news. These were things that did happen under Taliban rule. RickK 19:15 26 Jul 2003 (UTC)
      • The name alone suggest that it doesn't meet encyclopedic standards. Valid content should be moved to the history of Afghanistan page. 172 03:23 27 Jul 2003 (UTC)
    • It was moved from the main Taliban article by User:Ed Poor. I would keep it. --Jiang 03:27 27 Jul 2003 (UTC)
    • Seems fine to me. Of recent interest, yes, but that doesn't make it less worthy of being an article. I think it is a long-term piece. Daniel Quinlan 05:37 27 Jul 2003 (UTC)
  • I still think that the article could be easily replaced by a setence in Taliban. Lists of atrocities are not my idea of an encyclopedia. Next thing somebody is making an article like: List of experiments on jews during second WW. Muriel Gottrop 13:23 28 Jul 2003 (UTC)
    • I think that's a bit of a straw man. A much more general article like: "Nazi treatment of Jews" would be encyclopedic and useful. We almost have that, actually, it's called Holocaust (although it does lack mention of pre-Holocaust stuff like Kristallnacht). In the case of the Taliban, it is just placed the Life under Taliban rule page. Daniel Quinlan 01:50, Jul 30, 2003 (UTC)
      • Thanks for the straw man information :) I still don't agree with this (it's all a bit of voyerism to me), but i seem to be alone! See you around Muriel Gottrop 09:21, 30 Jul 2003 (UTC)


I have tagged this article with the 'wikify' and 'references' templates. Wikipedia articles are supposed to be continuous prose, not entirely composed of bullet points. It also fails to cite a single source. I'm considering renominating this for Afd, but it seems sensible to wait to see if it can be improved first. Cynical 22:18, 9 May 2006 (UTC)
