Hello, and welcome to Wiktionary! We notice that you're making changes anonymously. While this is perfectly all right, we'd like to encourage you to take the time to create an account and sign in to it when editing - it's free and easy. A number of good reasons to do so are listed at Wiktionary:Why create an account?.

Please note that we are not Wikipedia. If you have edited there, it won't be very difficult for you to find your way here, but there are a number of differences. For example, Wiktionary is case-sensitive: Kind (German) is not the same as kind (English, Danish, Dutch etc.) Also note that Wiktionary never uses parenthetic disambiguation, so where Wikipedia might have separate articles on Mercury (planet), Mercury (element), and Mercury (mythology), Wiktionary will only have one entry on Mercury which addresses proper noun uses, and an entry on mercury which addresses regular noun uses.

Here are a few good links for newcomers:

Questionable entries will be listed for verification, and, if they fail that process, will be deleted. Also, keep in mind our copyright policies: don't copy material from copyrighted sources here. Such additions will be deleted on sight. Submissions from IP addresses unfortunately are looked at more closely, so please take a minute to create an account. (Remember to enable "cookies"!)

If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question in the appropriate discussion room or ask me on my talk page.

Enjoy your stay at Wiktionary! -- Cirt (talk) 05:17, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

March 2012[edit]

Please do not add unsourced info to Etymology sections of entries, as you did, twice, here diff, diff. Thanks. -- Cirt (talk) 04:45, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Can't you look for a source for it? I'm new at this, and it's obviously the right etymology. And most etymologies I've seen around here don't have sources anyway, so why does this one need one?

Please stop[edit]

Please stop disrupting the page Santorum, as you did three (3) times now by adding unsourced info [1] [2] [3]. Thanks, -- Cirt (talk) 16:29, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Could you please give a good reason for your actions then? Right now it just seems like you're trolling me. 16:34, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Right now it seems like you're being disruptive. -- Cirt (talk) 16:48, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
I apologize if I've been unnecessarily disruptive in my actions, but I've yet to see a good reason, a link to a relevant policy maybe, explaining why this etymology in particular requires a source. 16:54, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

This is the discussion page for an anonymous user who has not created an account yet or who does not use it. We therefore have to use the numerical IP address to identify him/her. Such an IP address can be shared by several users. If you are an anonymous user and feel that irrelevant comments have been directed at you, please create an account to avoid future confusion with other anonymous users.
