Can you be a bit more polite than to go around writing "ignorant solecism" in edit boxes? A little Wikilove goes a long way, and not all our editors have English as a first language. (BTW, "comprised of" is definition 8c in the OED, and is not labeled as substandard in any way.)--Prosfilaes 21:44, 4 August 2005 (UTC)

Barnstar[edit]

Minor Barnstar.png The Minor Barnstar
For your abiding efforts to remedy grammatical and syntactic errors, I happily present you this barnstar; even as many of your edits may, individually, be minor, the import of those edits and the sum of your contributions surely aren't. Joe 16:20, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

(I intended simply to leave you a message apropos of your good work, but I decided you deserved a barnstar when I read the note supra; anyone who works to vanquish the horrid comprised of locution is altogether fine in my book.) Joe 16:20, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Apology[edit]

It was pointed out on Talk:Main Page#Coronated or crowned? that I somehow "chastised" you "like an infant". Not sure why anyone would say that. I didn't. I had no such intent. I was just pointing out that the problem was fixed and suggested a way to view the fixed version of the Main Page. If you feel "chastised" in any way, I apologise. -- 64.229.7.39 20:24, 4 June 2006 (UTC)
