Disambiguation page[edit]

Following a DRV[1] this has been recreated as a disambiguation page. I posted on the closer's talk page[2] asking advice but perhaps I should have raised the matter here.

I suspect the people at AFD and DRV didn't really understand that "science and technology" is a general term of art not just the conjunction of two words. Anyway, the new Science and technology looks quite nice to me though I hope we don't do the same to Research and development or, indeed, Tom and Jerry. However, a bot has come along telling us we should disambiguate incoming links[3] and I expect it will have consequences for articles containing the incoming links and for people adding links in future. I doubt whether changing the links to "science and technology" makes sense. Maybe remove these links entirely since we now have nothing to say worth saying. Does anyone know how all this will affect what DPL bot does and does anyone have any remedial suggestions generally? Thincat (talk) 20:46, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

The closer of the DRV has kindly removed the DPL bot tag and has stopped it interfering in future. Are the incoming links a problem? Thincat (talk) 21:18, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
