127.0.0.1[edit]

I don't think we want entries on specific IPs just as we don't want entries on www.example.com or %SystemRoot%. -- Prince Kassad 22:39, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Delete, this isn't a definition of 127.0.0.1, it just explains what is it. w:localhost covers this nicely. Mglovesfun (talk) 22:42, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
Delete as defined. See Reserved IP addresses. The current entry ("localhost in IPv4") feels rather like having an entry 6.1 defined as "version number of Microsoft Windows 7". Equinox 22:57, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
Keep but change the definition. The phrase 'there's no place like 127.0.0.1' has become pretty commonplace, and in that phrase the IP address stands simply for home. —CodeCat 23:08, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
If this is only used as a quip or T-shirt slogan, then the entry should be there's no place like 127.0.0.1. I doubt that 127.0.0.1 is used in general-purpose running text to mean anything, let alone home (which is not really what it means in a technical sense). Equinox 23:14, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
True, but the fact that there are millions of hits for that phrase should mean something. It's certainly in widespread use. —CodeCat 23:36, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
Hmm, this is new to me. Such a sentence could be considered to 'convey meaning' per WT:CFI#Attestation. Striking my 'vote' until I can think a bit more. Mglovesfun (talk) 13:20, 25 November 2010 (UTC)
Delete this current definition. The definition CodeCat mentions hasn't been added, and no evidence has been presented that it exists. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:45, 18 July 2011 (UTC)
