Someone should remove the space in "e. g." and "i. e." everywhere on this page, since it 1) causes bad line breaking, and 2) just looks weird. Daniel Brockman 23:19, Sep 6, 2004 (UTC)

Paragraph duplicated in another page
The last paragraph is a repeat from the Exogamy page, and should be removed.
Isn't this from the Catholic Encyclopedia?
- Yes it is. And it's really impossible to NPOV that stuff, so I was bold and simply removed it and hope for a good rewrite of that article. --Conti|✉ 00:25, Jan 29, 2005 (UTC)
I'm having a hard time relating the ideas in these three articles. They seem to be describing three completely different concepts. If they're really unrelated, that should be explained. If they are in fact related, then there's something wrong with the articles. The totemism article says the word comes from an Ojibwe word, but the totem article seems to imply that it's from Chinese. Or is the Chinese word totim actually derived from the English word totem? I think this should be clarified. --Bcrowell 15:51, 19 Jun 2005 (UTC)
