Just want to point out the wiki for Roquefort claims it was invented well before at least 79 AD. Most likely, it was invented long before even that:

This article on the other hand has no citations for its date, probably because this cheese has been historically documented since Roman times. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:31, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

"Bleu cheese"[edit]

It's sometimes spelled that way in American English (but never in British English). I hadn't come across this until recently. (talk) 15:07, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

  • I noticed that and tried to add it. I'll try again. Bod (talk) 23:40, 26 February 2018 (UTC)


Page was started in American English, please refrain from constant changing — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:51, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

I recently tried to make it consistent in the article, and was reverted. As to not start an edit war, is there a reason to change it from the variety of english the article was started in to British English? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:32, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

User:RGloucester is attempting to change the article to British English. It was written in American English to being with, thus, by ENGVAR it should stay there. There is no compelling reason to change it to British English, other than it's someones preferred version of English. Please maintain civility in wikipedia, and don't change things from how they were started. Cheers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:35, March 26, 2015‎ (UTC)
The problem here isn't RGloucester. The problem is that IP User changed the ENGVAR used at this article in December 2014 completely unprompted and without discussion. (Looking at their Talk page, has been guilty of this previously...) The original version of this article was definitely written in American English (e.g. note the spelling of "flavors"). Under WP:RETAIN it needs to stay American English. I'm going to add a {{Use American English}} tag to this article, and make any necessary edits to restore the original ENGVAR. --IJBall (talk) 02:42, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, probably shouldn't point fingers, I noticed's edits earlier as well, and changed them back. ~~Ip user — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:15, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
Amazing that Americans care about this article considering the tasteless yellow fat that they think of as being cheese. And don't forget who invented spray "cheese" — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:34, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
Please attempt to remain civil, and don't go into the all too common 'anti-american' bashing which creeps up on wikipedia everytime someone spells something differently than the Queen. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:02, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
The earlier comment is nothing about spelling differently "than the Queen" (and which queen?) but is about the terrible yellow fat that masquerades as cheese in much of Amercia. And please attempt to avoid the all too common whining of anti-Americanism anytime someone dares suggest anything other than unwavering praise of the USA. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:35, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
And please stop automatically pushing everything to commonwealth english as soon as an american english word pops up. It's a triffle annoying. ~~ipuser (talk) 08:15, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
And please stop making false acccussations. It's a trifle annoying and offensive to lie. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:04, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
