Disambiguation added by I.P.[edit]

An I.P. made this edit. I am skeptical of whether this is actually a realistic point of confusion, but thought I'd solicit views before reverting (I'm going to cross-post this to Talk:Peelian principles). Steve Smith (talk) 23:19, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

I would revert it. A quick search on "Peelian principles" does not suggest any reference to "Robert's Rules". Ronruser (talk) 02:10, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

No, Robert's Rules of Order is not the short title[edit]

Robert's Rules of Order appears within the title of the manual, but it has not been the official "short title" for over a century. We could

  1. rename the page Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised to reflect the book's current name
  2. go back to calling it the "informal short title"
  3. call it the "popular name" of the book.

The reference to General Robert in the first sentence adds to the impression that the article is only about the first three editions.
