Hi, I just saw you edit CLA to remove the 'references' section. I thought that it was mandatory for a page to have them (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionary:Entry_layout_explained ). Has that been changed? Orthogonal (talk) 05:18, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi. They're not mandatory. Equinox 05:21, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
Ok, thanks Orthogonal (talk) 05:22, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

gaslight[edit]

The page as-is is not good English; it introduces a singular subject with plural pronouns. My edit had the correct singular common-gender pronoun. Lysdexia (talk) 17:46, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

I agree with Equinox's edit. The phrasing that Lysdexia used didn't make any sense. —CodeCat 20:54, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Bath Spa[edit]

Does this need an entry? Or is it only the name of the railway station? SemperBlotto (talk) 15:19, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Personal attack warning[edit]

Please refrain from making snide remarks about me not using logic. I actually DO use logic, and even if I didn't, saying I don't was unnecessary. Just because you disagree with me doesn't make me illogical Purplebackpack89 (Notes Taken) (Locker) 21:26, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

The first two sentences are reasonable enough. The last one assumes that the only reason anyone calls you illogical is because people disagree with you. There are lots of people who disagree with any or all of the people who call you illogical, but you're the only one that is consistently described that way- so there has to be more to it than that. You routinely make such assumptions about the motivations of others and proclaim them as fact- which are just as much personal attacks as the kind of statements you're objecting to.

User:Chuck Entz, in the particular discussion to which I am referring (virgin growth RfD), Equinox and I disagreed. He voted delete, I voted keep. After both of us had voted, he accused me of being illogical. And I am called illogical by Equinox and others regardless of the style of arguments I use, which I am frankly tired of. Purplebackpack89 (Notes Taken) (Locker) 22:13, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
I am quite confident that, had I also voted delete in the virgin growth RfD discussion, Equinox would not have called me illogical Purplebackpack89 (Notes Taken) (Locker) 22:43, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
He might not have called you illogical, because it wouldn't be worth bringing it up, but I'm sure it wouldn't have changed his opinion of you. As for the timing, he said that in response to your inept attempt to turn his words against him. Speaking of which: you've not been making a whole lot of sense today- are you all right?

Calling an illogical person illogical is not an attack. Equinox 23:14, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
