Requested move[edit]

comm (Unix)comm – unnecessary disambig

Survey[edit]

  • Weak support. The term looks familiar enough but Google and dictionary don't reveal other significant meanings. If someone digs out another meaning of "comm", I'll withdraw the support. Duja 10:24, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose. I could not see any other use of that name either. However there are many companies that use this in their name like A-Comm, D-Comm, Z-Comm and this is a common abbreviation for communications. Also, it is common for unix commands to be listed with the (Unix) dab. So my thinking is why change it? Nothing links to the current redirect, so its not like a common error.

It's common for Unix commands to be listed with " (Unix)" because they often require disambiguation, not because people think it's easier to find or makes more sense. ¦ Reisio 04:30, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
Yes, I know that. But at what point does it make sense to make a name of that form the standard? Vegaswikian 07:04, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
Never, according to current (and long-standing) naming conventions (aiui, anyways). ¦ Reisio 08:45, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
  • Support because it's a reflexive redirect. --Lox (t,c) 17:22, 10 February 2006 (UTC)
