Untitled[edit]

The speaker at the end of the book in the asylum is Ted, not Charlie. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.157.148.49 (talk) 21:07, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Request for Expansion[edit]

Nothing much to it, really. Rage is a powerful short-story, and considered one of Stephen King's most controversial. I think a plot outline and some more general info on the story would be a welcome addition to this page, which is pretty lacking in info. --JOK3R 18:45, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Connections with actual events[edit]

This is a controversial subject - but it should be the responsibility of Wiki editors NOT to vilify this author for events that have nothing to do with his book. The tragedies at Columbine and recently at Virginia Tech (2007) do NOT have ANYTHING to do with Rage. It is irresponsible to make any connection between this novel and these events. Rage is NOT about a mass killing or massacre. It is a hostage story about a troubled teenager in which he happens to shoot two people who happens to be teachers. If you're going to relate a Stephen King story to a mass killing, see Cain Rose Up. LACameraman 19:11, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Take it easy, LACameraman, no one's going to accuse Mr. King (whom you're so bоldly upholding the honour of) of any (even furthest) influence upon recent tragic events. But there's also no necessity to call one's editions "exploitive" and "inflamatory", you just might write that making such links is "not desirable"... And, despite we want it or we don't, on many boards/forums this resemblence is being widely discussed. Armatura 19:58, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

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

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Ragebachman.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 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.

Incorrect Facts[edit]

I eliminated this info: "Barry Loukaitis, who killed two fellow students and his algebra teacher on February 2, 1996, in Moses Lake, Washington, even quoted directly from the book ("This sure beats algebra, doesn't it?") after shooting his teacher.", since that quote is not from the book (I just checked the whole e-version). In the future, I think that we should avoid using blogs as the sources for wikipedia, since they're hardly reliable. PS: Sorry for the lack of username, but I can't seem to find my password now. And sorry for any spelling mistakes here, but english is not my native language. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 200.72.70.115 (talk) 08:21, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Unexplained rollback[edit]

My previous edition was undone. Care to explain why? The facts I presented are true. The book does not include that quote, period. So that whole citation is based on a mistake, at best, or a lie, at worst. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 200.72.70.115 (talk) 20:34, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Plot incorrect?[edit]

My memory may be faulty, but I'm pretty sure he doesn't hit his teacher with the wrench and then go get the guns, etc. I think the wrench incident happened before the actual events of the novel, and is used to explain his anger towards Mr. Denver. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.108.208.173 (talk) 07:58, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Out of print[edit]

We need a definite date on when the book was actually taken off the shelves at King's request. Jmj713 (talk) 22:48, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

I recently brought a copy of the Bacman books and was suprised this story was missing, the introduction makes no mention of the fact its gone, and King even talks about how it was written in the forward.. its like someone ripped the pages out of the book. 121.73.246.11 (talk) 14:18, 26 November 2009 (UTC)Dirty Great Green Murloc
