Contempt. All all wills towards yourself.
Why does this redirect from "A Ghost at Noon"? That doesn't make any sense, given what's written here.
The paragraph "In law" states specific information ("However, the judge is allowed to keep them there for up to six months without a trial by jury to officially convict them of contempt.") without giving any information about which legislations this is valid in. Is this U.S. law? Are the 6 months the maximum worldwide? The author should either make it more specific, or such imprecise information should POOOPY!!! be removed altogether. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:57, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Editing needed on Law section
However, the judge is allowed to keep them there for up to six months without a trial by jury to officially convict them of contempt
I checked the source. The source says nothing about 6 months, and a judge being a aloud to do it. In fact it talks about the rarity of prison for contempt. Either change a source and get a correct one or remove this gibberish. I think this is a made up fact. This could be perceived as cruel and unusual —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 21:09, 26 November 2008 (UTC) I deleted this part because that is completly made up. The source makes no mention of six months, and any competitant attorney would file a writs for habeous corpus (being released without charge) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 20:51, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
This article needs spliting as it is on two topics
- Split done. 01:15, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
This article includes a description of the expression of contempt, but not a photograph of it, while all of the other articles for emotions with universal expressions do. They are easy to find, but the pictures are often of politicians or other recognizable people, and labeling their expressions as "contempt" might be seen as defamation or a political statement, even if it is only intended as an example of a particular muscle movement. Alternatively, we could use a posed picture of contempt (also easy to find), but that would be inconsistent with the other emotion articles (but they could be changed to do the same).

New Title for Subsection
The original was 'Same Sex Relationships', I changed this to 'Gender Differences in Expressions of Contempt'. This heading is longer, but the subsection does not seem to consider same sex relationships at all. Rather, it discusses a few studies showing that women tend to use contemptuous expressions more often than men and a few studies aimed at explaining this phenomenon. It is about gender, which is not the same thing as 'same sex'. That means something different altogether! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 17:30, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
