Note on 1927 vs 1933 Edit

This note was just added:

There have been unconfirmed and unsubstantiated reports that place Winston's birthday in 1927.

The problem is that these "reports", as far as I can tell, are just edits on this article. These edits have been done with no source provided. In addition, these edits have all, as far as I can see, come from the same anon/IP address. I don't think we should add a note for this. All we have is one person making sourceless edits. In addition, this is something that I have seen on other articles both on MA and on Wikipedia (Leigh Taylor-Young, for instance, on both). I personally feel that this may be a formof light vandalism. I'm not saying that it is the case here, but it is a possibility. If a source is not provided soon, I am going to remove this note. --OuroborosCobra talk 17:07, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

And just like that, the note is gone, replaced with an invisible note telling people to provide a source before changing. I'm happy now. --OuroborosCobra talk 17:17, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

I've revisited my earlier tact, removed my note, and put a similar, yet nasty, one into a comment, hidden from the average reader :) -- Sulfur 17:18, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
