- I agree that unnecessarily complex verbiage should be avoided. But this verbiage is not unnecessary; it conveys an explanation that cannot be succinctly reduced to plain English without loss of meaning. It is impenetrable only to those who aren't familiar with the terms. Anyone who is interested in understanding it better can proceed by looking up the definitions of the terms and at least gain some further knowledge. Those who are not interested in the detailed explanation can pass over the technical terms while still understanding the thrust of the argument. Plenty of other Wikipedia articles at least in places use technical language that would be meaningless to a layman. (Just think of the articles on quantum mechanics!)

Slow loris help
Thank you very much for the clean-up help on Slow loris ahead of it's TFA (today). It just dawned on me that a related article, Conservation of slow lorises, needs a small update that I can't make, and I was hoping you might be able to help. A little while back, a research article by the world's leading slow loris researcher discussed the impact these slow loris Wiki articles (and other social media) had on loris conservation. Because the article mentions me ("A. Dunkel") and my Wiki efforts, there would be an obvious conflict of interest if I were to summarize it. Would you mind helping out by adding a mention to the appropriate article? It will definitely make for an interesting edit—making note of the significance of a Wikipedia article in the article itself. – Maky « talk » 08:10, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
- Sure, I'll have a look at it, and maybe get the edit done this weekend. Thanks again for your prolific contributions to strepsirrhine articles. WolfmanSF (talk) 08:39, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
