RSA link from 'RSA_encryption' to Royal_Society_of_Arts ?[edit]

Someone changed the RSA link from 'RSA_encryption' to Royal_Society_of_Arts.

According to the statistics (before the change) 'RSA_encryption' is a far more popular subject then Royal_Society_of_Arts.

So I would say that RSA should be redirected (back) to 'RSA_encryption' (and not Royal_Society_of_Arts). Or redirect to: RSA (disambiguation) — Preceding unsigned comment added by FlippyFlink (talkcontribs) 15:38, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

Agree?

After looking at the substantial number of options with strong showings, it is pretty clear that there is no primary topic for this initialism. bd2412 T 02:20, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
Based on what has been said thus far, it appears that RSA (algorithm) is a fair candidate for being a primary topic. Would someone please provide an argument to the contrary? Skippydo (talk) 05:20, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
Readership for Royal Society of Arts is not insubstantial, and we cannot reasonably assume that a reader who enters "RSA" in the search box is necessarily looking for an article about encryption (even though that may be true in many cases). I agree with BD2412 that there is not a clear primary topic here. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 15:07, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
If there is no clear primary topic (statistics appear to indicate otherwise, but ok), I'm inclined to think that redirecting RSA to the disambiguation page is more appropriate than redirecting it to a highly questionable primary. -- Skysmurf  (Talk) 18:37, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
I've done that for now.--agr (talk) 20:01, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
Can someone be more specific about the criteria being user to determine that there is no primary topic? It it that Royal Society of Arts has met some threshold of readership and thus there cannot be a primary topic? Skippydo (talk) 22:07, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
WP:PRIMARYTOPIC (in other words, there are no strict rules and it's mostly up to common sense) -- Skysmurf  (Talk) 01:54, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
