Sam Turner deletion[edit]

An article that you've created and/or edited, Sam Turner, has been speedy-deleted. Based on the lack of information on the subject and reviews of similar quote articles, it is suspected that these are not quotes of notable figures with published references, which is what Wikiquote collects, but rather quotes from yourself or your friends or acquaintances. These are what we refer to as "vanity" quotes, much like Wikipedia's "vanity" articles. As is pointed out in Wikiquote:FAQ and What Wikiquote is not, which are recommended reading, such quotes are perfectly acceptable on one's user page, but are not a proper subject for quotation in Wikiquote articles.

If this person has some notoriety in the world at large, and have been quoted in the mainstream media, please feel free to recreate the article but be sure to include this information. Thank you for your cooperation. —LrdChaos (talk) 15:26, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
