English link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nathalie_Obadia the right version of the text is here : https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Nathalie_Obadia&oldid=757236245
Please confirm me asap the articles will stay like this, it is very important for us.
Happy New Year, Airplaneman!
Hi flier, thanks for the review, only just coming back here so haven't seen it before and btw Happy new year to you (the capital here being used as a marker for a set expression which is nevertheless sincere as there aren't that many truly polite ppl here - at least they unfortunately don't look like the majority that they actually make up, altogether.
You've respectfully (ta!) asked me what I think about a capital to "necropolis" even though it's not the first word of the sentence, here it is :
1) if I wanted to do that I'd have been born German;
2) I have utterly bad feelings about misplaced capitalisation in general coz it strengthens the institutionalisationist brain-wash, got to make up a new work for it coz it's gone onto a new, so far unexperimented level as humanity's gone into the 3rd millenium and I sure do NOT like that at all;
3) It's done now.
4) It's your world now, am nearly gone from it and this time I think I won't come back to it otherwise than as a visitor. So you choose - and you'll be the one to have to deal with the consequences; so good luck to you with all my heart and soul coz I passionately love this planet, there ain't many like it despite what some'd like us to believe. In fact it's bloody unique. So are each language's idiosyncrasies, and there is no good reason to stick capitals all over the place when it's nothing to do with the rules of a particular language and everything to do with the bad habit of trying to make things look more important than they are - a common trait of political correctness, and as you can see from your own way it's highly contagious. I most sincerely hope that you'll cure yourself from it, but if you don't, no worry: not only you won't be alone, but you'll be right up there with its mostly-self-elected elite. Let's be very clear coz my way of saying things is, as the name says, basic and therefore crude: i really have nothing bad against you for it, all the contrary you are very sympathique, as we say in french. (After I wrote that,) i had a qwik look at your page, found this: "This user knows that Wikipedia has become too Bureaucratic". Here we go, proof by A + B : capital to the bureaucratic. That says it all - including that you're trying to fight it. GOOD for you, and to my eyes there is no better reason than that one for wishing you All The Best For The New Year :DD

According to the definitions as noted in: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advertising https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Promotion_%28marketing%29
I fail to see how informing users that they can easily upgrade to the latest OS with the assistance of existing free software can be considered "to be advertising" though I can see how this can be considered "for promotional purposes". Any writing is in itself an expression of an idea or thought, which is a promoting that idea or thought. Then logically if "for promotional purposes" is to be against what wikipedia allows, then this is in very violation of wikipedia's existance - the sharing and spreading of knowledge.
