untitled[edit]

Should this be moved to pathology (mathematics), per adjectives should redirect to nouns in the manual of style? Fredrik Johansson - talk - contribs 01:50, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

This should probably be an exception. The adjective "pathological" is much more common than the noun "pathology" in this context. Crust 14:57, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Well-behaved[edit]

For the same reason we have "Truth value" instead of separate "True" and "False" pages, and "Endianness" instead of separate "Little-endian" and "Big-endian". Keφr 13:55, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

The case of 'pathological' and 'well-behaved' is not as clear-cut as with true/false or little/big endian, as there are no exact definitions, and both concepts have their own connotations, their own context, etc. That being said, the two articles are short, so merging them would be quite easy. I anyone wants to go ahead, please. –Jérôme (talk) 19:21, 11 October 2014 (UTC)
