Wikitionary, not wikipedia[edit]

This article is basically a definition of a word, so it belongs in wkitionary not wikipedia. There's really not all that much to say about it other than to define it. rewinn 03:55, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

ABSOLUTELY, Rewinn. It is a derisive slang. HOw do we go about doing this?jgwlaw 02:28, 16 July 2006 (UTC)
First, post the "candidate 4 wiktionary" box (I just did that.) Next we need to discuss the move, see if anyone objects. The stuff that's not definitional should be tossed. For example, the 1st Amendment stuff is not really relevant to the term "Ambulance Chaser". It is relevant to a dispute over legal advertizing & legal ethics, and should go in whatever articles those may be. Finally, if there's no strong opposition, we make the move. The technical means for that I haven't figured out yet; hopefully someone will enlighten us, otherwise we'll have to post a wikiQuestion. rewinn 07:06, 16 July 2006 (UTC)
There has been no objection. And the last editor reduced it to a Wiktionary form, so I have moved it here.Jawesq 21:29, 29 July 2006 (UTC)
