Comments[edit]

I don't see how this article is less "formal" in "tone" than any other article in Wikipedia. The comment that its tone isn't formal seems grossly POV, and it frankly makes me want to never contribute to Wikipedia again.

I have removed the {tone} tag from the article. The current article is no more informal than most articles on Wikipedia. Unless the one who tagged it can defend the tag and specify exactly how it is informal, I see no reason to keep it so tagged....unless of course we should similarly tag thousands of other similarly "informal" articles.

Removed "Unreferenced" Tag[edit]

According to the tag, the article "does not cite any references or sources". In fact, the article cites the writings of Plato, Aeschines Socraticus, Xenophon, and Diogenes Laertius. These surely are sources, by any reasonable standard. The reader, of course, is perfectly free to check the references that are given.Isokrates 20:56, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
