Laura Poots[edit]

Non-notable except for at a college, possibly vanity? Luigi30 18:45, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Delete, vanity. We're not here to note everyone who's elected into a position in a college. Sockatume 18:56, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete, delete! How many overachievers have vanity pages around here? Katefan0 20:13, Dec 10, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete, blatant vanity. EagleFalconn 20:40, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. How much more vain can you get? - Lucky 6.9 21:13, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete: Oxford Union winners are not notable for that alone. (Her name is vulgar in the southern US, btw.) Geogre 22:28, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)
Geogre, as a Southerner transplanted to the DC-NYC corridor, I can happily(?) report that phrase is alive and well around here too. Katefan0 22:58, Dec 10, 2004 (UTC)
Note that it's also one of those names that forms a sentence, like "Laura Spitz" or "Laura Bowles." I can only hope she didn't have to endure taunting for it in the UK and therefore feel that she must over-achieve by, say, going to Oxford and running for the presidency of the Oxford Union.

  • I wasn't going to say anything, but I refer to my dog's "air biscuits" as "poots." The term is alive and well here in the Southwest as well! - Lucky 6.9 23:10, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Probably not a personal vanity article (wouldn't she have included more details?) - but still not notable enough yet. She will get press coverage in the UK and will be reported beyond her own college - but still not sure that's enough. There are 45 ex-Presidents of the Oxford Union who merit their own Wikipedia article (which probably makes it more than 'a position in a college'). But the others listed have done something notable beyond that before getting their own article. Mpntod 23:23, Dec 10, 2004 (UTC)
    • Hear, hear. I was bracing myself for an argument as to whether Poots is notable for being the first person to succeed a British-born Asian woman as a Union president ;-). And I doubt the press coverage will extend beyond the Oxford Student -- really, very few people who's president of the Oxford Union, not even most of its members. Pnot 09:40, 11 Dec 2004 (UTC)
