Request for Removal of Quotations

So in December someone did a redirect on this page and there doesn't seem to be a way to revert the edit. Does that mean all the discussion that previously was here has been lost? What a bummer! I'll check to see if we have any kind of backup.

Anyway, I have been contacted by the editor of this Conscious Defect zine, who has requested we remove the quotes from that page. He does not give permission for the quotes to be used on this site and believes that including them is a violation of his copyright. He stated in an email to me that the quotes came from a zine that he made for a few friends, and he does not want to have his writing published online. Because we never had a consensus on how to handle such requests (see ZineWiki:Deletion_Policy_discussion), I am sharing this info here for comment. My opinion is that including the quotations is fair use under copyright law; however, I am willing to remove the quotations (which are not cited / sourced anyway) from the page out of respect for his request. The page also included two cover scans, which he requested be removed. I removed these images, in accordance with ZineWiki:Content_guidelines.
