Examples section[edit]

The examples section seems to add no value to this article. I think it should be removed. Toddst1 (talk) 17:26, 6 October 2017 (UTC)

I strongly disagree. Without concise chronological examples, it is merely a dictionary entry. Xirja (talk) 02:25, 7 October 2019 (UTC)Xirja
  • No it is not. There is serious and well-verified content. Drmies (talk) 14:11, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Wholesale removal of material deemed unencyclopedic?[edit]

  • Toddst1, I see now that you had the same concerns I did. Here we have Xirja, a user with two dozen edits, telling us you are in fact incorrect. They did finally insert an edit summary in their revert (the third one). Anyway, I strongly disagree with the very existence of this list, which adds nothing to the article. BTW this whole article needs a serious scrubbing--one of its gems is "But looting can be dangerous because of bandits." Right. Drmies (talk) 15:11, 6 October 2019 (UTC)
Thanks @Drmies:, That restoration was not an improvement. Toddst1 (talk) 19:54, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

No mention of rape?[edit]

An entire article about looting and pillaging by military forces, and the word "rape" doesn't appear once? Isn't that astonishing? And no mention of another possible synonym, "sack"? And no links to famous acts of pillaging, such as Nanking or Rome? Acsenray (talk) 17:06, 3 June 2019 (UTC)
