Please unprotect this page. Once unprotected, I will edit it and tell everyone that strictness is very hurtful to others. Poingpoingjj004 17:55, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Protection will be maintained, because of your continual vandalizing of this page and your repeated personal attacks. Robert Ullmann 18:15, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
No. This page must be unprotected. And you say that my edits are 'vandalism' or 'personal attacks'. It's like I said, strictness is hurtful to others and it is sufficiently possible there will be an upcoming population drop by students in school who commit suicide because of a high strictness factor. If you continue to disagree with me, I'm going to 'edit' your talk page. Go unprotect this article right now.
What I can see is that something is hurting you badly. Please seek some serious counseling, as soon as possible. Please. This is not an appropriate place to deal with a situation in which you need professional help. Robert Ullmann 17:40, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Four years later on, yeah really do deal with this issue, either by getting some counselling or other methods (I've always thought a good friend is much better than a good therapist). Furthermore (blatant pop psychology) I'd reckon you might be suffering from a lack of strictness, not having encountered strictness earlier in your life you might be struggling to deal with it at school, while kids who've experienced strictness at home will be used to it and think nothing of it. NB this section is horribly off-topic, but I think it has to stay as it explains a lot of the vandalistic edits in the page history. Mglovesfun (talk) 08:02, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

Comparative / Superlative[edit]

Regarding the usage note: What's the source for saying that "more strict" / "most strict" is most often used outside the UK? I've lived in the US all my life, and I've never heard "more strict", only "stricter". "More strict" sounds very odd to me. All the North American dictionaries I can find give only the -er / -est forms. I think this usage note should be removed unless a reference can be given to back it up.
