At WikiProject Cornwall we subscribe to the policies laid down by Wikipedia - particularly civility and consensus building. We are aware that the wording on Cornish entries can sometimes be a contentious topic, especially those concerning geography. You don't have to agree with everything but there is no excuse for rudeness and these things are best solved through consensus building and compromise. For more information see WP:CornwallGuideline.
These pages are not platforms for political discussion. Issues relating to Cornish politics should be restricted to those pages that directly deal with these issues (such as Constitutional status of Cornwall, Cornish nationalism, etc) and should not overflow into other articles.
Most of all have fun editing - that's the reason we all do this, right?!

"== Robert of Mortain ==The timeline has a statement that he was a Celtic speaking Breton: where does this idea come from as nothing in his own article suggests he would have needed to speak Celtic as well as Norman-French. His vassals would have been in contact with the Bretons.----Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 13:09, 25 April 2009 (UTC)----Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 19:01, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
In this paragraph the second sentence begins "He was granted the rape of Pevensey...". This sounds like an anachronistic modern opinion, and would apply equally to most ALL the lands granted to William's Norman followers after the conquest, from our modern viewpoint. What he was granted was the castle of Pevensey, as the Pevensey article clearly states. Whether this was vandalism or not, it violates the NPOV, so I have changed the word to 'castle'. ----StevoDog21 (talk) 21:33, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Rape is a real term, involving a subdivision of land in the southeast of England. It might apply equally to all Will's followers who were granted land in Sussex, but not necessarily those given it in, for example, Suffolk. The castle may be what Robert got, but technically he was given the rape ~ with no sexual connotations whatever, so not vandalism. Cheers, LindsayHi 04:33, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
I apologize for my ignorance. I was not aware of this definition of the term.--StevoDog21 (talk) 20:18, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
