Removed...[edit]

I have removed "For the chain of coffee shops based in Los Angeles, see The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf."

This is something for the disambiguation pages, not the top of an entry (and therefore looks a little like opportunistic advertising).188.220.186.197 (talk) 09:36, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

I'm removing it again. Nobody has spoken up in support of it, and it is not a useful disambiguation. We wouldn't have a link to "Over The Moon publishing" on the article for "Moon". 24.142.62.29 (talk) 17:56, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

I'm not a big fan of hatnotes, but this one actually seems useful to me. The store The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is often called simply Coffee Bean (says so in our article, in fact). The argument that "this is something for the disambiguation pages, not the top of an entry" doesn't apply here because there is no disambiguation page for the term. In the absence of one, the hatnote is appropriate. As for the argument that "we wouldn't have a link to 'Over The Moon publishing' on the article for 'Moon'", I think we would have a link to 'Over The Moon publishing' on an article for 'Over The Moon', which is a more relevant hypothetical.

Agreed, the chain is usually simply called The Coffee Bean, so it's a necessary hatnote. Softlavender (talk) 19:46, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
