Untitled[edit]

The article gives two conflicting versions of his patronymic. It is correctly 'Petrovich.'

I don't see any mention Pobedonostsev was the offical censor. Burning of books, etc., etc.... Peters 05:44, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

Came across some more good information in doing other research, incorporated. —  Pēters J. Vecrumba 02:04, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Married? Children? Holy Orders?[edit]

Did he receive Holy Orders? Was he married? Did he have any children? -- 217.190.205.250 19:10, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

English grammatical usage in the text[edit]

As so often in articles composed in or translated into English principally by speakers of Slavic languages this Wiki-entry is riddled with errors in the usage of the definite and indefinite (and especially the 'omitted' plural indefinite) article, to the point where, in a number of instances, the sense of the text is obscured. In the past I've attempted clean-ups in such circumstances, but have found the procedure so tedious and time-consuming that I have frequently given up. Why are East European speakers and writers of English, who in other respects appear to have good competence in English, apparently so unaware of this very fundamental aspect of the grammar of the English language? As a language teacher myself, I find these lapses so annoying: it is basic to correct English usage, something I would teach, and din by rote into a foreign learner of English from day1! 86.137.148.195 (talk) 09:37, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

  • My case precisely. Yours truly, native Russian speaker, learnt vernacular spoken English around nine years old, lived a few years in English-speaking countries, worked around ten years in English-speaking environment ... I don't feel any difficulty speaking correctly (perhaps because my real-world profession requires thinking in English most of the time), but writing oh writing ... yes, definite articles are the greatest nuisance (punctuation a distant second). So I have to disagree with your last premise: it's not so simple, it's counterintuitive and unlike spelling irregularities it cannot be easily learnt through a drill. 78.107.117.194 (talk) 05:45, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Sorry to tag onto this comment, but I don't see the option to create a new comment. Regarding the article, many statements are not cited or verified. A few references are listed at the end and are used in the text, but much is stated without substantiation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aimzzz (talkcontribs) 19:46, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Wrong link?[edit]

The second footnote, http://books.google.com/books?id=W8ETvpyQ26wC&pg=PA23&dq=pobedonostsev+reactionary#PPA23,M1, which is supposed to say something about many people thinking of him as a conservative seems to go nowhere. New one? 82.217.116.224 (talk) 15:26, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
