Ummmm....anyone know anything about this one? Simba B 22:35, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

Al Davis was an intrigal part of the furry scene. I think in his time, he collected and spent a lot of time and money helping all furs and artists when ever he could. He made a lot of friends at the many cons he attended and was a familiar sight. Remember, being a fur is not just about being an artist or a character, it's also being the one who always there to lend a helping hand, and that was Al. I'll miss him dearly, and I was glad to have called him my friend.--DLNorton 23:14, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

There needs to be higher standard on this. The "memorable moment" is pretty pointless, and there is more than a fair bit of editorializing. If nothing else, filling in some facts would be appreciated (if he was a philanthropist, what charities did he support, how did he help furries, etc.). I'm sure he was a great guy and all, and we're all dimished by his passing, but this comes across as more memorial than information. 733

I agree with 733. The contents of this article really belong in an obituary kept offsite somewhere, and presumably linked to from this article. As it stands, most of the article is rather POV. --Douglas Muth 03:37, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Well, since I can't come up with any more on Al, take it out if you wish. I was only trying. Sorry for the inconvenience guys. Al was my friend, and I don't want this to slide into a small war over whether it should or shouldn't be included. I rather have Al's memory a good one. Sorry.--DLNorton 08:54, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
