Hi; I reverted it because you're an anon IP who didn't bother to include an edit summary or discuss the change on the talk page before making such a major edit (I admit to be an ignorant arbiter here). The primary author of Almon Strowger thought the locomotive and technology jargon was important enough to disambiguate (he's the one who made the disambiguation page). The locomotive article doesn't exist yet, but it could (and should?) be written someday.

If you don't think the disambig page is necessary, well.. perhaps you could leave a note on the discussion page justifying the edit (also use the edit summary field) before you do so? I hope I've not discouraged you from editing; your work looks to be a valuable contribution to the project. We get a lot of vandals around here, but you don't seem to be one of them. :) -- Hadal 06:39, 13 Apr 2004 (UTC)


Thanks for the clarifications for your actions. You have not discouraged me and I will keep contributing as I see bits that I can help. However, I am still not sure about the policies/etiquetttes as to what I should do with this page. If you look at all 4 references to 'Strowger' are to the same thing, the name of the creator of the automatic electronic exchange and all the information is or should be on that of Almon Strowger's page. Therefore the disambiguation page is only adding to confusion. However, there may be other uses of Strowger which may need disambiguation, and I do not know about that part.
