Delete. -controlled was given a redirect, so perhaps this should, too, but I don't personally think it's necessary. Equinox 16:37, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
You're pretty much right; the search mechanism is good enough to find resistant from -resistant. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:34, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
Delete An advantage of the redirect approach is that it slightly discourages someone from re-adding the entry while taking them more quickly than search to the page that should have the right information. Specifying a PoS section (or Etymology where the first Etymology section is not the right one) in the redirect increases the chances that the relevant definition or usage note would appear on the landing screen.
