Wrestling sense. Not sure if this should be {{rfd-redundant}} or rfv. Or both. --Connel MacKenzie 17:39, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Well, if you consider pro wrestlers to be con artists then yes, they are redundant. DAVilla 18:58, 15 May 2007 (UTC)
A con artist isn't the only thing described in the earlier definitions; as they are simply specialized "actors" it is more of swindle. Either way, the "wrestling" sense is only an example, not a distinct sense. --Connel MacKenzie 17:35, 16 May 2007 (UTC)
Are they swindlers then? In other words, does pro wrestling have "intended victims"? DAVilla 17:07, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

RFV failed, sense removed. —RuakhTALK 21:28, 19 July 2007 (UTC)


A noun and a verb have been given the same etymology. This needs to be fixed. Njardarlogar 13:24, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Added verb meaning[edit]

Per '[mark:verb]', the list should include this sense of the word:
A territorial animal will 'mark' its territory (the land that it claims certain rights to) with urine, scat, rubbing foliage, scratching trees, etc. This marking can be perimeter only, or throughout or only along trails within the territory, or at certain resources within the territory. In most cases, the marking is 'intended' for certain others, usually only of its own species.
