Apalled to discover P.Barber unpresented here. This is definitely work-in-progress, please pile on. Tim Bray 08:19, 27 Mar 2005 (UTC)

She is known for her apparent above-average intelligence and vocabulary, which results in complex and witty lyrics Possibly one of the worst sentences i have ever read on wikipedia and elsewhere....

Hmm. User 82.34.250.125 (the author of the anonymous comment above), I also think that sentence is awkward, but if it's one of the worst sentences you've ever read, either you've been very lucky to read only extremely well-written material or you're being overly harsh. I see that you did go ahead and edit the article page, which is good. Thank you for doing that editorial deed. However, it might help other editors if you'd give specific suggestions on what errors you saw and how they might be improved instead of making snide, unsigned comments. What might such specific examples look like? Well, let's take your sentence, which itself is poorly written. First, it is a sentence fragment and not a complete sentence. Second, you failed to capitalize "I" and "Wikipedia". Third, rather than "and" you should have written "or". Finally, "elsewhere" really doesn't seem to be the best word choice here; better would be "or anywhere else".
In short, your own comment would be better if written as "This is possibly one of the worst sentences I have ever read on Wikipedia or anywhere else." Interlingua 15:33, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

Why are we taking up space mentioning her sexuality? It's about as relevant as what color car she drives, or what she tends to eat for breakfast. Petershank (talk) 09:10, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
