Miscategorized under Spanish pejoratives, slang, and ethnic slurs. Estonian categories for each have been added to the page, but I cannot figure out how to delete the Spanish categories since they do not show up when I go to edit the page. 64.126.190.123 10:39, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

You (or someone before you) used lang=es, which is Spanish (español) not Estonian. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:40, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
changed to lang=et SemperBlotto 10:41, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Etymology[edit]

There are two sources for the word, and 'vitebljane' is older and thus more correct. See w:en:Tibla. -Mardus (talk) 17:33, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

The current meaning mostly denotes w:en:Homo Sovieticus. -Mardus (talk) 17:33, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

tibla

This entry for an Estonian anti-Russian ethnic slur has had several additions that apparently mean something to those who added them, but not to ordinary readers, phrases such as "Russian slurry expression of address" and "Homo Sovieticus perso". I've removed most of it for now, but I would appreciate it if someone could go though the removed material to see if there's anything worth saving. Also, the etymology could use some work to rephrase it so it makes sense to someone who doesn't live in Estonia. Chuck Entz (talk) 06:21, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

The issue is not the Estonian so much as the idiosyncrasy of the person who added it. I reworked the etymology, so the only thing left is to make sure that it is verifiably correct. @CodeCat, Tropylium, do you have Estonian resources that can confirm the definition and etymology? —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 06:35, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

ÕS just says venelane (Russian), that's all I can give. —CodeCat 21:04, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
