This page (Gelotology) exists in other languages too. Why aren't they listed? (I can't do that)

For example there's Polish: pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gelotologia

Spiritual Issues[edit]

I'm removing a reference to "spiritual issues". If someone confirms that such issues exist, feel free to undo my edit.

I also decided to change the word "mental" to "psychological".

Possible copyright violation[edit]

Three days ago, someone at IP address 98.163.220.147 (talk) wrote in the article, saying "WikiEditors: this article's text was apparently borrowed from a company brochure." This seems plausible based on some of the promotional language in the article, but I don't know how to tell if it's true. The IP may simply have been judging by the promotional language, and not actually have seen the same text elsewhere. I'm posting about it at Wikipedia talk:Copyright problems, since this doesn't seem to be a very busy page. A. Parrot (talk) 00:02, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

Sorry - I think I deleted a section[edit]

I take issue with the following sentence; "This has led to new and beneficial therapies practiced by doctors, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals using humor and laughter to help patients cope or treat a variety of physical and psychological issues." Why are doctors and psychiatrists mentioned, wouldn't all psychiatrists be doctors, the distinction seems arbitrary and ambigous. If by 'doctors' one means to imply medical doctors (which psychiatrists are) would it not be more appropriate to state 'physicians' rather than doctors. There appears to be a distinction in the way it is written that appears to be somewhat arbitrary with regards to the whole 'doctors, psychiatrists...' and so forth portion. This is my fist Wikipedia input and don't know if I'm writing this in the proper place, but I think improvement is possible here and would like to help. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ddmatt (talkcontribs) 06:42, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

I deleted professions altogether, since the rest of the paragraph says that individuals themselves can use these therapies (I guess after looking them up in wikipedia :-) <laugh-hlaugh shigger-snigger> Kaligelos (talk) 17:29, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
