Nickname[edit]

I attempted to add to the nickname list for the building, but my edits were deemed to be vandalism. New slang is starting to call this building the "Dick Building" and I was trying to note that on the article. I can't say that this name makes any sense to me (the building doesn't really look like a dick) but this name has been gaining ground down here in the financial district. It's possible that it's not in wide enough use to justify being on the page, but it's surely not vandalism. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.223.226.5 (talk) 14:53, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Fair enough, but you'll need to find a reference for something like that before you put it in the article. -- Lear's Fool (talk | contribs) 15:00, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
I'm sorry I marked it as vandalism/test edit, but given the difference from the already listed nicknames and the lack of any results when I did a google search for it, it certainly struck me as inappropriate for the article. VernoWhitney (talk) 15:56, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Hmm, I'm also finding that the article that is linked providing reference for the "Pregnant Building" nickname, which is certainly legit and in far wider use than the other, no longer exists. How much time is it worth trying to find another reference for that name?192.223.226.5 (talk) 15:06, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
