Welcome to the discussion


While I rather like this page, isn't it a bit ironic that it's basically stating "pages should be simple" in a convoluted way? :) Radiant_>|< 10:10, August 16, 2005 (UTC)

No. It's stating that the best explanation of a thing is the thing itself. That may lead to simpler pages, but perhaps not, if demonstration is added to analysis. This merely argues for preference to be given the demonstration. — Xiongtalk* 16:35, 2005 August 17 (UTC)


Isn't slapping on a link to a non-existent category just a convoluted way of being snippy? — Xiongtalk* 16:35, 2005 August 17 (UTC)

That old comment needs the edit history: Template:Lps,
it was only a missing s in Category:Essays. -- Omniplex 20:21, 9 May 2006 (UTC)[reply]


What exactly is the point of this 'Grapefruit' entry?

Being lazy?[edit]

I would care for a propper Wikipedia article on this fruit.

See Grapefruit; this is an essay about writing articles. SCHZMO 22:01, 28 April 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Good concept, but flawed.[edit]

This is a good concept, but it doesn't actually give many guidelines on how to implement it. What, for example, am I meant to put in the article for Pornography? Should I simply offer the reader some? While demonstration is very useful, this article makes it sound like it is the only possibility. Suggest changes, perhaps?

Pornography and some other topics like spam are often "defined" by I know it when I see it, but obviously that's not always the best approach for an encyclopedia. WP:HORSE is apparently a counter-example (but I'm not sure). -- Omniplex 20:16, 9 May 2006 (UTC)[reply]

–If you want to try and talk about pornography try and talk about points of view.


  • The best example of the scientific name of the grapefruit is Citrus x paradisi. In other words, many readers will need to know how human history has approached a subject, not just how an example of it can be perceived. Dystopos 04:42, 8 May 2007 (UTC)[reply]
