Please do not break links. Djegan 18:12, 8 January 2006 (UTC)

Stop unilaterally changing names in articles. You are breaking links. Also, the official name of the agreement is the Belfast Agreement and that is the name WP has decided to use. Stop changing it. All your changes of the name have been reverted. FearÉIREANNIreland-Capitals.PNG\(caint) 21:56, 8 January 2006 (UTC)

The Agreement's official name is the Belfast Agreement. A survey of usage for WP showed that both BA and GFA are used. However the GFA is more associated with the nationalist community, because some protestants don't use the name Good Friday for the day Christ died. (Some sections of Protestantism actually find the term offensive and believe it idolatrous to attach any significance to a day.) As BA is the official name, is used by both communities, and carries none of the potentially offensive name problems associated with GFA, BA fits the criteria for NPOV better than GFA, BA is the name used by WP (and many news organisations, for example, The Irish Times).
