[[Java#Proper noun]]

Fragment of a discussion from User talk:CodeCat

Ok please explain to me:

  • Why a definition that specifically states "proscribed" is misleading, considering that I provided citations that demonstrate that some people really do mean "JavaScript" when they say "Java".
  • Why my knowledge of programming languages has anything to do with this. I am well aware that Java and JavaScript are different things. However, what I am aware of is completely irrelevant to the definition, because I'm not the only English speaker in existence and thus other people will use words differently from how I use them.
  • Why my lack of integrity is in question when I simply re-open an RFV because I don't think it was closed properly. I specifically am waiting for someone who is more experienced with Wiktionary to handle the matter, as I have more faith in their judgement than in someone who has never made any edits and thus is less likely to understand the subtleties of Wiktionary policy and common practice.

Re: "your lack of integrity", "your obvious lack of knowledge", etc: Stop insulting people. We do not tolerate personal attacks, and besides being arguably rude and patronising in general, you are coming somewhat close to that.
