My use of "pedophila" on this page was not so much interpretation. I simply updated the obsolete and euphemistic "child love"--that all other editors had no problem with--with the modern equivalent term. Why was the misinterpretation ignored until that point? Dogface 17:20, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

"Be silent, Freyja! Thou art a sorceress, and with much evil blended; since against thy brother thou the gentle powers excited. And then, Freyja! what didst thou do?"

Here Loki is suggesting that Freyja has used her witchcraft to have sex with her twin Freyr. I'm no specialist, but I am Icelandic, and I'm fairly certain that in the last line he does not ask her what she did. He really says: "And would you then, Freyja, fart." The translator must have been too embarrassed. I recommend checking a second source. 81.15.59.106 (talk) 13:13, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Lokasenna.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Lokasenna.jpg 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 insure 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 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 uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 06:08, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
