Hi All,

The director where I work wants a Wikipedia page put up about him.

I've put one up and added what I believe are reliable references and twice his page has been rejected. Now here is what I don't get. His page in Hebrew was accepted without 1 reference.

This is essentially the same page, but in English, with lots of references. Why does it keep getting rejected? I think some of the wiki editors take themselves WAY too seriously...

Any ideas or suggestions?
