James T. Kirk confusing LSD/LDS[edit]

That's right, we can't have any humor on Wikipedia, even on a bullet item that is, itself, pretty silly to begin with.

"Lucy and the Sky of Diamonds", anyone?

Well, perhaps Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.

LSD as abbreviation of debate team name[edit]

Yesterday, I added an entry (anonymously then, as I had yet to create this user acount) to this disambiguation page, stating that LSD could be an abbreviation of "Lynbrook Speech and Debate", "Leland Speech and Debate", or the debate club or team of any other school with a name beginning with "L."

Now, I am writing to ask why that entry had been rudely and unceremoniously taken down without any apparent warning or notification, not even a remark on this Talk page.

The entry was a perfectly valid, factual, and formatted statement: 1. Valid- Among students in the US, it is common to refer to school clubs and teams by their initials. Debate teams are amongst the largest clubs in American schools and both LSDs mentioned (Lynbrook and Leland) are rather renowned throughout the country and include hundreds of students in their membership. If I am not mistaken, Leland Speech and Debate is indeed the largest debate group in the US.

2. Factual- The website of Lynbrook Speech and Debate at verifies the validity of LSD as an official initialism of the debate team. LSD is also common parlance amongst Leland students to refer to their debate team- an officer from Leland's debate team ( could be contacted to verify this.

3. Formatted- The entry was properly bullet-pointed, in line with the format of the other entries of the page. In addition, links were given to the Wikipedia entries of both Lynbrook High School and Leland High School.

Thus, I would like a proper explanation as to why my post was taken down.

In the meantime, I shall repost and ask that anyone who desires to eliminate that entry a second time defend his position properly, as I have done for mine, on this talk page.

Entry has been reposted ^^

The debate clubs of the Lynbrook High School, the Leland High School, and of any other school with a name beginning with "L." are simply not notable enough to be mentioned here. This is also indicate by the fact that none of them has its own article (don't understand this as a request to start them...). This is an encyclopedia and not a dictionary of acronyms. Cacycle 16:08, 27 August 2005 (UTC)

Cacycle, in my opinion... 1. Your statement "this is... not a dictionary of acronyms" is contradictory to what is evident on the LSD disambiguation page. I do not understand how half the other entries on the page (such as those of works by certain bands) are notable enough to be mentioned but I am not about to delete them. In any case, you'd probably consider such a deletion to be sabotage and I likewise consider the deletion of my entry an equally unnecessary and biased measure.

2. The debate clubs of Lynbrook and Leland are certainly notable. They are neither lacking in size, prestige, nor renown amongst our generation and were Wikipedia to be maintained by a yet younger set of people, these clubs would be on par with any university student group including Liberating Students Digitally, which is listed on the LSD disambiguation page but also lacks a Wikipedia entry of its own.

I continue to protest but I will respect the status quo and refrain from re-posting my entry. To tell the truth, I have never been a member of any debate club (though I was indeed a student at Lynbrook), and I am much more interested in your biochemical research than speeches. However, I burn with indignation at the short shrift given on Wikipedia to societies organised by high school students in sharp contrast to the credit accorded to collegiate groups (even fraternities, for the love of god!).

removing redlinks[edit]

Articles that are likely to never be written don't belong on a dab page. Since I cannot determine which are likely to be written and which aren't, I'm moving all of the redlinks here and they can be moved back as those articles are actually written.

This change makes it much easier for reader to find the articles that they're actually looking for (provided they exist). Tedernst | talk 16:15, 5 December 2005 (UTC)

Added two to the end, struck out Long Slow Distance which seems to have an article now. SnowFire 04:50, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
Having an article shouldn't be the only criterion for being on a dab page. We can include the item without a link to an article if it is accurate and notable information.--csloat 05:12, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
Oh, I entirely agree. You'll note that there are still two redlinks in the article, but they are clearly notable ones. Heck, I'm even lighter than Tedernst in that I'm fine with the occasional entry that will never have an article, if it's relevant enough (although then, of course, it should just be text without even a redlink). The thing is, most of these moved here seem pretty shenanigany and not appropriate for a dab page at all; the redlinks are just a symptom. SnowFire 14:00, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

low sexual desire[edit]

I removed the sexual arousal disorder link from the "low sexual desire" listing again, per my original edit summary which was: removing link to sexual arousal disorder - no mention of "low sexual desire" as well as no mention of "LSD". As the article being linked to has no mention of either the abbreviation "LSD" or the words "low sexual desire", then it clearly shouldn't be linked here - see MOS:DAB#Items appearing within other articles; see also MOS:DAB#Individual entries (one link per line).

If mention of "LSD" is to be added to the sexual arousal disorder page, PLEASE include a valid reference - TIA.

I propose to remove the hypoactive sexual desire disorder link too, if a valid <ref> cannot be found. (talk) 10:11, 23 October 2008 (UTC)


The following is a closed discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was leave things as they are. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 14:14, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

  • Lysergic acid diethylamideLSD redirects here. The disambiguation page (LSD (disambiguation)) lists thirty entries, many of which may be of equal prominence in particular fields; I'm finding it difficult to justify that, but my gut feel is just that many of these are at least as prominent as Lysergic Acid.
  • Propose: Change redirect LSD to LSD (disambiguation). Change templates at top of Lysergic Acid diethalymide article appropriately to refer to dab page and remove LSD-25. Possibly Remove LSD-25 as redirect. Either redirect LSD to LSD (disamgigution page) or rename latter as former. Remove definition of LSD as lsyergic acid from top of dab page (patently, if it has over 30 meanings, not all of them mean lysergic acid; also undue weight). Remove unnecessary seealso etc from Lysergic acid diethylamide and other related artcle. SimonTrew (talk) 05:49, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
  • I just went Be Bold and did it. Any objections please leave here or at my talk page. I don';t know how valid or useful to is to put a discussion talk at a dab page or redirect-- any advice there thanks. SimonTrew (talk) 14:19, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
  • A couple of changes were reverted by User:JHunterJ. I have asked that discussion continue at WP:WikiProject Disambiguation, with the suggestion (and initiation) by [[User::AndewHowse]]. SimonTrew (talk) 18:22, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Per discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Disambiguation#LSD which strongly suggests the existence of LSD (sorry, too many letters to type out the full name) being the primary topic for LSD. (talk) 12:42, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose for WP:PRIMARYTOPIC -- JHunterJ (talk) 15:05, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose. I don't see any other use on the dab page that has a strong case to compete for primary topic. It is well understood throughout the US and many other countries that LSD almost always refers to the drug outside of special contexts. I don't see any need to move anything here. The dab page appropriately lists it as the primary topic, and there is a hatnote in place on the article to direct stray traffic to the dab page. No problem. Wilhelm_meis (talk) 15:35, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Google searches and Wikipedia traffic statistics point to the psychedelic drug being by far the primary meaning. Prolog (talk) 21:29, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
Can I point out for fun that "too many letters to type out the full name" has more letters than "lysergic acid diethylamide"? (32 v.s. 24, excl. spaces?)
But more seriously, if anything relevant (i.e. the Oppose arguemnts, as it happens) is missed at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Disambiguation#LSD can someone add them in, I still am not sure what concensus will be here (though obviosly I am in favour of my proposal) but the Oppose should be listed (there's enough Oppo's there already but our difficulty was to know where to list.) Best wishes SimonTrew (talk) 22:01, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

You stated see ... its cover (image) - do you have a link to that cover art? (talk) 15:23, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
Also - there is now a LSD-Love, Sensuality, Devotion redirect, and All pages beginning with "LSD"/All pages with a title containing LSD links in the LSD (disambiguation)#See also section. (talk) 18:23, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
