Trivia about Meaning of Ridder in Dutch
This is not relevant to an article on the company Knight-Ridder. Wikipedia isn't just a collection of irrelevant and loosely relevant trivia and it's not a Dutch-English dictionary either. If the fact that ridder meant knight had played some role in the history of the company, then I might see your point, but it hasn't.

- I disagree. I do not see it as a prerequisite of relevance or notability that the name has to have played a role in the company's actual history; I believe that the very existence of such a rare coincidence (and its funny nature) is enough. However, Knight Ridder is not a high-enough priority for me to get into a big fight over the interpretation of the relevant Wikipedia policies. I already have my hands full with fixing the huge mess of overlapping and disorganized content in Lawyer, Juris Doctor, Law school, etc.. You win for now. --Coolcaesar 05:05, 18 January 2006 (UTC)
- I also find it interesting enough - it's just a funny coincidence is all, and I don't think the article claims that it has any greater significance. Wikipedia is not just a collection of trivia, but that doesn't mean that trivia is completely banned. — sjorford (talk) 22:14, 24 January 2006 (UTC)
- At the risk of waking a sleeping dog, I agree, it is just a mildly interesting coincidence, not particularly rare even, and does not belong here. That's the whole point to having a style manual in the first place. If "I happened to chuckle at this" should be an exception, revise the style manual accordingly.
