Data[edit]

I am not "starting with this". A perfectly grammatical statement was "corrected" by another user, and I restored it. What's the problem? Specifically, why are you ragging on me taking me to task and not the other editor? -- Elphion (talk) 13:07, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Apologies: it has come to my attention that the slang phrase struck above may have a sexist origin, which (a) I was not aware of, and (b) does not reflect my intent. -- Elphion (talk) 17:49, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

I did not know about a sexist origin to that phrase either. No offense taken. However, you must be perfectly aware of the everlasting “data is” vs. “data are” war. No one is ever convinced of the other side’s position, and no good comes of it. I didn’t notice the earlier edit; if I had I might have done the same as you regardless of my own correct opinion.

I was blissfully unaware of the data war. Will avoid contributing to it in the future. -- Elphion (talk) 11:05, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
