Ostracization is not a word in any dictionary, the proper word is ostracism. 15:21, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

      • I think it's funny how much the entry has been improved it got nominated. We should get people to make pointless nominations more often. :) —CodeCat 19:25, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

          Most of our entries suffer from lack of attention and can be improved even when there is no specific need for cleanup. If attention is the scarce resource, then one of the most efficient ways of improving Wiktionary is to improve an entry when one's attention is drawn to it for whatever reason. That's a reason I don't like AWB so much: it discourages me from working a single entry. DCDuring TALK 22:21, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
