Barack Obama and the floodgates[edit]

I deleted the following sentence from "Other Uses":

US President Barack Obama has often been paraphrasing the "indeterminate" quote since the beginning of the Invasion
of Iraq, saying he was opposed to "an occupation of undetermined length, with undetermined costs, and undetermined consequences

What an ironically self-referentially tangential reference to ultramares v touche (I'm dizzy at the very thought): if all quotations that repeatedly use the expression "undetermined" for rhetorical effect were to be sufficiently relevant to this article as to rate mention in it, it would open the floodgates to an indeterminate amount of irrelevant fluff in this article by an indeterminate amount of trivia fiends, for an indeterminate amount of time.

Do you think it's possible that you may come across as slightly pompous, oh you up there in your Muswell Hill? Wikidea 11:37, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
I was thinking "ironic", personally, but I guess it could be "pompous". I've been called worse. ElectricRay (talk) 10:48, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
