What does this mean?[edit]

This is an odd sentence:

She had previously been found guilty of similar charges in 1995, but was acquitted.

Does this mean that she was charged in 1995 and acquitted, or that she was charged and convicted but acquitted on appeal? --Delirium

Comparison[edit]

Is Imelda Marcos the precendent for the wife of the corrupt leader who spends zillions on high fashion while natives struggle to bring food to their tables. Marcos' name has been used in comparison with Michele Duvalier and Michelle Obama. 69.143.110.86 (talk) 23:49, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

Oh give it a rest. 96.41.43.212 (talk) 03:44, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

The inspiration for Michelle Obama? That's hilarious.--Bridgecross (talk) 15:23, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Use of name[edit]

I wonder why she is referred to by her first name Imelda and not her last name Marcos through the article ? Iselilja (talk) 22:21, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

You're right that it should be changed. Why not be bold and change it yourself? Be careful, however, not to introduce ambiguities; in sentences which could also be about her husband or son, you'll need to include some clue as to which Marcos you're referring to. There's a discussion on proper use of names in biographical articles at Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Biographies. --Alexbook (talk) 03:26, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
  • She is widely referred by her first name in the Philippines and in my opinion she is the proamry topic of her first name similar to Adele. Much like royalty, which she feels like she wants to be treated as such. There are numerous articles that use her first name alone, she even has a Imelda.--Theparties (talk) 03:52, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Reviewer: Jonesey95 (talk · contribs) 19:54, 25 March 2014 (UTC) FYI, this article's nominee has been blocked as a Sock Puppet. I do not feel that I have the authority to delete this nomination and remove the tag from the article's Talk page, but someone else reading this page may wish to do so. – Jonesey95 (talk) 19:54, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Comment—there's probably not much point continuing here; because Theparties, the indef-blocked nominator, is identified as a sock account of a banned user, s/he won't be able to reply to your comments or to fix problems with the article. Perhaps another interested editor could step in. Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 01:23, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Failing per above. Too bad since on the surface it looks like it has the potential to pass GA. Wizardman 01:37, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Quote section?[edit]

Why is there a quote section? Mark Twain does not even have one. This seems like a bit of adulatory fluff not needed for the article.96.41.43.212 (talk) 03:44, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
