Mass Psychogenic IllnessMass psychogenic illness

Per WP:CAPS and WP:TITLE: this is a generic, common term, not a propriety or commercial term, so the article title should be downcased. In addition, WP:MOS says that a compound item should not be upper-cased just because it is abbreviated with caps. Matches the formatting of related article titles.

  • Support. I agree: this is a generic term. NoeticaTea? 02:40, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Obsolete terminology[edit]

This page uses a point of view and a set of terms, such as "hysteria," and "nervous system disturbance" which may be obsolete. It may need to be rewritten from a more objective point of view. Dratman (talk) 14:40, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Regarding the Weir reference[edit]

I fixed the dead link, but the phrase "preponderance of female victims" oft-quoted in the article appears to be originally cited from the following article:

http://bjp.rcpsych.org/content/180/4/300.full

I might mess around and change this later (to be a more comprehensive reference), but can't right now, so if someone else would like to that would be great. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 138.37.199.151 (talk) 11:41, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
