Please remove PPP from a newly-adopted profile [closed]

I just adopted the profile of Alexander Pope, an English poet who is (according to the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations) the second-most quoted writer after Shakespeare.

However, when I found him, he was orphaned, yet had the Notables Project template on and was PPPd.

I have changed the template to the sticker; could someone remove the PPP for me, please?

Ooh ooh! Please miss? Is there some quote along the lines of 'fools rush in where angels fear to go'??

I think that is the first time I've seen a reference to him since leaving school, but I know my father has all his works, its ringing bells from my chi!dhood
"Fools rush in where angels fear to tread" from his 1711 "An Essay on Criticism".

Are you saying I'm rushing in where angels fear to tread by adopting his profile? LOL
Haha, no absolutely not! I think my brain just associated the name with the line! Probably a throwback to my Dads love of poetry rather than my 1980's national curriculum education lol :). A great profile to work on!
Well, once the PPP is removed, you're welcome to have a go!

And here is the English Authors freespace page, if you want to take a look:
https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:English_Authors

and the category page - maybe you'll see some familiar names among them - and if you *don't* see one, let me know!

The PPP should only affect his LNAB and the ability to remove his parents (and a few other minor things), but I've removed it. Did you need to change his LNAB or remove his parents? Typically this is left on for Notables once it's added, but I can't say that I'm aware of any controversies with this one that would have people arguing over parents or LNAB, so it might be OK to leave off. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

Well, I don't really know yet, as I have only just adopted him.  Thanks for removing the PPP, though.  If I encounter problems further along the line, I'll talk to the England Project about re-PPP'ing him (is that a word?).
HA - I think you just invented it. It will show up in Oxfords soon...

And sounds good about the PPP - I'll leave it in your capable hands. :)
