Merge with Victory Disease[edit]

This page does not gain much by being separate from the main article, and it is POV in various places. I suggest, to whomever is predominately working on this article, merging appropriate bits into Victory Disease and prosifying it. Gracenotes T § 02:54, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

Split off[edit]

I split it off as the main article at Victory Disease was getting long, with too many examples.

All right. I realize that your action was a bit more justified than I initially thought. However, I would suggest prosifying this article -- replacing list form with prose -- whenever you have the opportunity. This will make it more of a substantial article. I would also suggest changing the name: by WP naming conventions, it should be "Historical examples of Victory Disease" or, even better "History of Victory Disease." Thanks!

Did prosification myself, accuracy concerns[edit]

I recently prosified this article, and the edit summary runs as follows:

I found the last section about terrorism and victory disease to be unfactual. That is, it is quite possible for it to be true, but it seems to be a conjecture stated factually: a mother who says "Jedediah steals cookies just because he's hungry" when, in reality, Jedediah did it because the cookies tasted good. That's approximately it.

Merged back into Victory disease[edit]

This article should never have been split off, since the material in the intervening years made the two articles almost completely duplicative, and there is, basically, no need for two separate articles on this one topic. Beyond My Ken (talk) 07:44, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
