99 percent

I almost speedy deleted this, didn't something very similar fail RFD recently? Anyway the sense "a term used to refer to the almost all of something". Other sense is speedy deletable. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:34, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Found it; see Talk:99.9%. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:35, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Keep the sense that originates from "We are the 99 percent" (or %), which I added. It can be easily attested. A simple Google News search (which I did for "99 percenter" to see if that could also be attested credibly) turns up the New York Post[1], New York Times[2], etc. That Guy Over There (talk) 21:55, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Shouldn’t it be adjective instead of adverb? Ungoliant MMDCCLXIV 16:19, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
This nomination has become a bit screwed up, as the entry has different definitions to when I originally nominated it. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:07, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
I support deleting the sense “Almost all.”, RFV “Those who are not part of the ultrarich.”, and abstain from voting on “Almost totally.” (but I still think it is an adjective). And I support the deletion of the now gone sense “(mathematics) 99 parts out of a hundred”. Ungoliant MMDCCLXIV 17:23, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
