Please stop edit-warring over the spelling. You do have a point on the Reck/Wreck spelling, but sources vary, and the omission of the W is more of an internal tradition among students and alumni than an official policy: the Alumni Association clearly ignores it, for example. It would be helpful if you, presumably with access to archives, can produce clippings or some form of authoritative references concerning the spelling. I remember being warned as a rat to spell it "Reck", and did so, but it's obviously far from universal practice. I do think the alternate spelling should be mentioned, but I a unwilling to allow the presence or absence of a W become the subject of a lame edit-war within one of WPs featured articles, an article which does Tech credit. Please participate on the aricle's talkpage instead of reverting. Acroterion (talk) 18:23, 10 August 2011 (UTC)
