I've modified the analysis section to remove the religious POV tone. This is not the only possible interpretation. ~ UrbaneLegend 11:21, 14 March 2006 (UTC) commercial[edit]

I've edited away the reference because it's looks like a commercial for the website. If someone states it's important for the text, I suggest it could be somewhere as a "The book may be available in internet bookstores." Wikipedia should not be a sellers market. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:37, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Copyright violation[edit]

"Tolkien was compulsive in his writing, his revision, his desire for perfection in form and in the "reality" of his invented world, its languages, its chronologies, its existence. Like Niggle, Tolkien came to abandon other projects or graft them onto his "Tree," Middle-earth. Like Niggle, Tolkien faced many chores and duties that kept him from the work he loved."

That text is taken virtually word for word from the one website given in the External Links section. It should be deleted or rewritten; unfortunately, I can't come up with any good way to rewrite it at the moment. Anybody? ... Beuller? -- CWesling (talk) 06:12, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

For the record, that site stole its text from the original words I wrote, not the other way around. Moot now since I see the text in question remains part of the article. -- user:Cayzle —Preceding undated comment added 16:52, 31 March 2011 (UTC).

Fair use rationale for Image:Leaf by niggle.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Leaf by niggle.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
