Lowercase or capital "m"?[edit]

I hope I have this right (considering I typed the whole thing myself):

To be written[edit]

If so, how so? & is it not arguable that in fact the behaviors themselves precede courts of any kind?

Seratonin and Melatonin[edit]

The emotional effects of Seratonin and Melatonin are looking a bit wobbly under current research - revise? Note in main article?

Redirect to S&M?[edit]

When I type "s and m" in the search box, it brings me here, but it should also give a redirect to the Metallica album S&M at the top. Sorta new here, so don't wanna screw something up, ill leave it to the pros :) (talk) 04:35, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

My first edit ever[edit]

The section on 'Real life' didn't read very well. I've tried to tidy it up and make it more concise without changing what the original author was saying. I still think it needs come work

Removed Paragraph.[edit]

The lead's third paragraph was jarring and confusing, to the point where its meaning was utterly obscured. I have removed this paragraph. In the form it was in, it made absoltely no sense. (talk) 08:47, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Forensic categorizations[edit]

I moved these questionable classifications into their own forensic section within the section on modern psychological perspectives. It belongs there (if it belongs at all) and not as a giant block of text at the beginning of the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:57, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

Why were the forensic categorizations entirely deleted? They are certainly not outdated and can be found in enough medical literature to merit staying in. No problem with placing them in a separate paragraph, but deletion is a bit too much! AlphonseMaturin (talk) 05:48, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
