Re:pakkoruotsi[edit]

Here are some examples from newspapers where the term is used more or less neutrally: [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8]. While the word pakkoruotsi has negative connotations for most people, it's not because the term as such is derogatory, but because lots of people hate the fact that everybody must learn Swedish. While the supporters of compulsory Swedish may find the term pejorative, lots of people simply think that it's an apt word to describe an odious phenomenon. You can compare this with Nazism, which is used as a neutral term for the ideology of national socialism, even though Nazism was in fact originally a slur and was never used by Hitler et co. themselves. The fact is that pakkoruotsi is not much more popular than Nazism in Finland, which is why it is pretty much the only term used when discussing the topic. Futhermore, often, as in many of the articles linked to above, pakkoruotsi is used as a purely descriptive noun, with no implication that the writer or speaker himself disapproves of compulsory Swedish. See also the article on pejoratives, where it is pointed out that words that start out as pejoratives may become non-pejorative standard words, and that sometimes a word is considered pejorative by some people and not pejorative by others. For these reasons I think it's apt to say that pakkoruotsi is a "somewhat charged term", and not necessarily derogatory.--Victor Chmara (talk) 12:31, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

OK, I should not have asked for evidence of use, without thinking clearer about what evidence to ask for. I think most of the examples fall in one of three categories:
  • The subject of the article is criticism of mandatory Swedish or somebody not liking it
  • The user (or the newspaper itself) is critical of mandatory Swedish
  • The user tries to keep an informal tone by using non-formal language
I think you could find something like this about "viherpiipertäjä" or similar words (tuo on ehkä hieman yläkanttiin, mutta löytyy HS:stä ja Uudesta Suomesta). They are informal and derogative, but used in mainstream media.
"The term not deregatory, but they hate the fact." This is the problem: by using the term other than a joke, you show what you think about the phenomenon. That means the term is not neutral (somewhat charged is "vähettelyä").
In spite of Godwin's law (you might not know Usenet so it would be unfair to leave the matter) I answer your other point: I think pakkoruotsi has not reached the point where it can be considered neutral. (have to go, will return to the discussion later)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Languages of Finland, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Inari (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Request for quotation: natural nuclear fission reactor[edit]

You put in a {{request quotation}} at natural nuclear fission reactor:

Do the articles state that the movements of actinides can be used as reference for nuclear waste deposits, as the wording here and especially in Deep geological repository suggests?

at

Most of the non-volatile fission products and actinides have only moved centimeters in the veins during the last 2 billion years.[1] This offers a case study of how radioactive isotopes migrate through the Earth's crust.[2]

Since I have access to the references in question as well as the pertinent technical knowledge, I could provide quotations. But I'm a bit unclear as to what you want quoted and why: the request reason has little to do with the actual statement in question ("This offers a case study of how radioactive isotopes migrate through the Earth's crust"). As well, the title of the second citation is literally "2 billion year old natural analogs for nuclear waste disposal: the natural nuclear fission reactors in Gabon (Africa)", which seems to answer your actual question. So. If you could attempt to clarify, I can try to fulfill your request!

Cheers.

The {{request quotation}} was not quite to the point (I found no better template), so I understand clarification is needed :-)
I am worried that the reference is used to suggest that worries about the safety of proposed deep geological repositories are in fact unnecessary. I would like to know whether the article in fact discusses such implications and whether there in such case are conclusions or opinions that should be included in the articles. If there is no such discussion, I think the fact should be clearly stated, or the statement reworded so that it does not seem to suggest such conclusions.
I understand that there might not be any suitable isolated cite in the article, but it is all too easy to make too broad conclusions based on hard-to-get sources - or make it sound the source implicates such conclusions.

NMEA 0183 needs a review[edit]

In June 2012 you have requested [9] some clarification of comments on fields for lacking data [10] (added in September 2009 by 203.25.165.1), and now I tried to expand the topic a bit. Could you please review my recent contribution (esp. for grammar and clarity)? [11] --CiaPan (talk) 06:25, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for the clarification. I think the wording is clear now. --LPfi (talk) 08:00, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

OER inquiry[edit]

Hi LPfi, I'm sending you this message because you're one of about 300 users who have recently edited an article in the umbrella category of open educational resources (OER) (or open education). In evaluating several projects we've been working on (e.g. the WIKISOO course and WikiProject Open), my colleague Pete Forsyth and I have wondered who chooses to edit OER-related articles and why. Regardless of whether you've taken the WIKISOO course yourself - and/or never even heard the term OER before - we'd be extremely grateful for your participation in this brief, anonymous survey before 27 April. No personal data is being collected. If you have any ideas or questions, please get in touch. My talk page awaits. Thanks for your support! - Sara FB (talk) 20:44, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
