Merge[edit]

Against merger. The Pontic-Caspian steppe is only a part of the Eurasian steppe which also include the Mongolian steppe the Kazakh steppe etc..are you sure? Nik Sage (talk/contrib) 14:31, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Agree. Tom Radulovich 05:39, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Unbalanced section on Indo-European removed[edit]

I have removed the paragraph in the introduction about Indo-European languages, on various grounds: 1) It is out of place in the opening section of an entry on a primarily eco-geographical subject. The linguistic question is addressed more appropriately in a later section on the page. 2) It is written in poor English. 3) It presents as fact what is only one hypothesis among others as to the origin of Indo-European. The other leading hypothesis (the Anatolian hypothesis) does not place Proto-Indo-European on the Steppes at all. 79.132.38.138 (talk) 23:25, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

BS Map Vandalism[edit]

"The Eurasian Steppe Belt" < The map above that. It's complete BS. Show me where on the planet Earth matches it. It's a horrifically photoshopped/incorrect rendering of Asia (or Eurasia - I can't even tell! It's that bad!) that is not remotely accurate to reality. Compare that vandal trash to a real map. Either it was put up as vandalism, or someone flunks geography big time. How that even exists if it's not to vandalize wikipedia is beyond me, because what could one gain by creating such a fake map? It's awful. (This Wikipedia article also sucks in regard to it's written contents. I wanted history information, for which it is useless. And, it's treating the history like this clumped up, stereotype, offensive crud. Racists.. I hate racists' influences on Wikipedia.) --174.19.234.173 (talk) 16:27, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

"Warfare" Section Unhistorical BS[edit]

It's BS based off "rebels" in strategy video games, and has no actual basis on historic facts, or archeological findings. Someone else just added a citation needed thing... I'm deleting it, because it's racist propaganda against my ancestry that has no basis in reality at all, and likens us to anti-Scandinavian propaganda that treats Vikings as the epitome of Scandinavians when Vikings were just cutthroats of Scandinavian origin who did not represent, or rule Scandinavia itself. Here I was... Looking to see who (of race/sub-race) was the first we know of to conquer the whole of the Steppes, whether it was Turks, or East Asians, for a writing project that features Steppe peoples descendants prominently, because I am personally of such descent, only to find this page not onl lacks much in the way of useful information, but has racist propaganda on it. That is called vandalism, and it is not allowed on wikipedia. We were not "rebels" in some poorly made, Eurocentric, Christian-centric strategy game, we're HUMANS, not SUB-humans incapable of being civilized.--184.101.248.0 (talk) 22:41, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
