Name[edit]

Why "Canyon Diablo (meteorite)" instead of "Canyon Diablo Meteorite"?--agr (talk) 05:01, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi! Well, mainly because the name of this meteorite is simply Canyon Diablo. In my opinion to call it "Canyon Diablo Meteorite" sounds like Earth called "Planet Earth" or like Basalt called "Basalt Rock". I hope you agree. - Basilicofresco (msg) 12:11, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Inappropriate link removal[edit]

I do not agree with user Mannheim_34 with his removal of any link to webpages hosted on a commercial website (almost any .com domain). I expressed my opinion here and here. I ask to the community: are these in your opinion links to "web pages that primarily exist to sell products or services, or to web pages with objectionable amounts of advertising"?

I don't want to start an edit war so if you agree with my point of view please restore any suitable reference removed from this article. Thanks. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 21:41, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
