Wikipedia Deletes Single Most Important Fact About Steve Sailer
Print Friendly and PDF

As an opinion journalist, I am used to being the subject of individual opinions about me: everybody’s got one!

But I do value more significant and scientific opinions such as the 2019 Intelligence paper, a survey of human intelligence experts who found me to be by far the most accurate media source on their academic field.

In recent years, the highly opinionated people who edit the Wikipedia page about me have been pretty scurrilous. Recently, however somebody added some actual factual information:

In the Talk section, somebody explained:

Rindermann, Heiner; Becker, David; Coyle, Thomas (Jan–Feb 2020). “Survey of expert opinion on intelligence: Intelligence research, experts’ background, controversial issues, and the media”. Intelligence. 78 (101496). doi:10.1016/j.intell.2019.101406. Retrieved 18 February 2021.

This highly relevant information should be included. Intelligence_(journal) is a leading publication which reflects the existing scientific consensus. The referenced article was written by an international group of renown experts and is very well sourced. Please read the referenced article to express an informed opinion.

The article has a lot of criticism from left-wing sources, but not much describing his work in a neutral way. Yes, the article should include the above paragraph, as well as a neutral summary of what he has written. Roger (talk) 04:24, 20 February 2021 (UTC)

But all good things come an end: the fact I’d been voted the most accurate media source on intelligence research in a survey of experts only lasted a little over 24 hours before being deleted as being NOT something that Wikipedia wants Wikipedia readers to read about me.
