Are there any objections to including the reportedly banned words (vulnerable, entitlement, diversity, fetus, transgender, evidence-based, science-based)? I can see they were listed at one point but got removed without explanation. I personally see no other reason for removing them than to drive traffic to the website we use to source the section. 78.28.45.127 (talk) 17:47, 27 December 2017 (UTC)

Out of the entire history of the CDC and everything they are responsible for, is this really noteworthy for an article on an overview of the CDC? Natureium (talk) 19:51, 27 December 2017 (UTC)
I wouldn't necessarily object to removing the entire section as undue. So long as we retain it, the words should be listed within it though; right now, it clearly leaves the reader wanting. 78.28.45.127 (talk) 20:50, 27 December 2017 (UTC)
I removed the specific 7 words as I don't see the point of making the section longer than it absolutely has to be; as Yuval Levin showed in the link I added the WashPo story was a misunderstanding. The entire section is borderline undue, but it's useful to have a correction on the wiki page. NPalgan2 (talk) 23:54, 27 December 2017 (UTC)
