It is said that he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. However who nominated him, and when he was nominated is unknown. The same source () says that he asked for his nomination to be withdrawn when he found out Le Duc Tho, founder of the Indochinese Communist Party was nominated also. Le Duc Tho refused the 1973 award.
Being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize is an honor, but it is not official or even prestigious. Any national legislator or about a third of the university professors in the world can make a nomination, and there have been as many as 140 some years. Nominators are requested to keep their nominations secret, so it's only those wishing publicity who make announcements, and more often it is impossible to verify. I see no reason to keep it. No offense to the subject, this is a general Nobel Peace Prize "nominees" issue. -Will Beback · † · 09:24, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

According to Radiolab (WNYC - Radiolab.org, episode "Bliss'), Bliss was actually very unhappy with what he saw as the perversion of his language. He even sued over its use. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 03:46, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
I removed the "happy" from "happy discovery" in the article, as the content of the paragraph itself refutes that interpretation. If it was meant as sarcasm, that doesn't work too well in an encyclopedic article. ~ Jeff Q(talk) 05:07, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
