Hyperlinks and Bias[edit]

There are some hyperlinks within the article that lead to empty or nonexistent pages that should either be removed from the article or altered. However, the bias in this article is nonexistent, mainly informational, so good work.AshleyCal (talk) 03:11, 29 September 2016 (UTC) Ashleycal, 22:10, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

Life cycle age needs to be adjusted to removed maximum age limit. An age limit does not exist for any biological species and implies no individuals can live past that. While the sentence past this shows that one individual did, it is structured to imply that this one individual is an outlier when we have no supporting evidence of this. The reflected change is supported by the sentence that follows it. No new references need to be added.

The change should be made as follows, under Life Cycle subsection:

"with a maximum of 90 years" should be changed to "but have been found to live up to over 100 years" Akidari (talk) 20:53, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Partly done: @Akidari: I have removed the unsourced, inconsistent phrase "with a maximum of 90 years." However, the wording of "have been found to live up to over 100 years" seems to imply that there may be multiple killer whales that have been found to live beyond 100 years. Essentially, please provide a reliable source to qualify that there are other examples beyond the outlier given in the following sentence. Otherwise, adding the phrase seems unnecessary.

Please remove the following ear-rending garbage: (talk) 09:16, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Not done: as you have not requested a specific change in the form "Please replace XXX with YYY" or "Please add ZZZ between PPP and QQQ".
More importantly, you have not cited reliable sources to back up your request, without which no information should be added to, or changed in, any article. - Arjayay (talk) 10:54, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
