Thanks for your contributions, but I'm not sure I understand some of your edits to Blue Lagoon. Taking a taxi is much more expensive than riding a bus, so removing that line doesn't make a lot of sense. Please discuss why this line is unnecessary on Talk:Blue Lagoon if you remove it again. -- Ryan • (talk) • 12:35, 2 March 2010 (EST)
- Hi Ryan, the reason that i edit this post is because i think people should get to know all the modes of transport to the Blue Lagoon. I am quite sure that people can make an informed decision about which mode of transport to use if they have access to all the relevant facts, which they dont have if they cant click any links in Taxi section only the buses. I cant see how you can decide to block travellers access to information about Taxis in Iceland. It is very biased of you and one might think that you might have something against taxi drivers. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ferenzcy (talk • contribs)
- Yes, I hate all taxis and spend my days campaigning against them. It is a cause to which I have devoted a significant portion of my adult life, but now that the movement is gaining ground it has clearly all been worthwhile. One can hope that someday we might achieve our ultimate goal of a world free of convenient transportation for those without access to their own vehicle.
- Sarcasm aside, I objected to an edit that removed useful information ("taxis are very expensive") and replaced it with two links to travel companies without providing any information about why the "expensive" comment was removed, and without explaining why a traveler would choose the "taxi" option. Please read Wikitravel:Goals and non-goals, specifically "blatant advertising is not welcome, and overcompetitive acts... is gravely deprecated". You're welcome to put information into the Blue Lagoon article about taxis, but do not do it solely for advertising purposes, and make sure any content is clear about the pros and cons of taking a taxi to a destination that is served by a large number of much-cheaper alternatives. Also see Wikitravel's policy on tour companies, which makes it clear that tour companies that do not offer a value-added service (something that a traveler could not otherwise fulfill on his/her own) should generally not be included in articles. -- Ryan • (talk) • 14:42, 2 March 2010 (EST)
