The problem is your revert is wrong[edit]

The problem here, where your revert is wrong is the name Blue Mountain (Singular) is inappropriate to a ridgeline with a length of 255 miles, or at least 150 miles as the crow flies. Older topo maps show it appropriately as Blue Mountain Ridge, acknowledging it has many peaks; that is also distinct from GNIS name Blue Ridge Mountain. That another disambig page Blue Mountain already includes a link to the article is to the good. Someone looking for the page can find it easier. No logically good reason two disambig pages can't link such, when the case is the difference and the problem. Kindly undo your revert, least I need to do so. // FrankB 21:00, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

@Fabartus: Thank you for the heads up. The dab page Blue Mountains contains 22 entries, all of which are plural. In a discussion years ago, I pointed out that having both Blue Mountain and Blue Mountains dab pages is a little confusing even for English literate persons, but those for which English is a second language may find it completely befuddling. Maybe the proper course is to combine them? Unless there is some aspect I am unaware of, Black Mountain/Black Mountains and White Mountain/White Mountains have the same issue. —EncMstr (talk) 21:19, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
Heh, heh. Those and many others. Actually think the issue is decades old and rooted in inconsistent policy or division inside the USGS and/or GNIS community. As a railroad buff, I acquired quite a few 1890s-1820s series USGS topo maps when they were available via some University servers years back. These are particularly valuable for showing railroading in its prime - nearly a maximum extent - but also because auto-clubs hadn't yet lobbied to create later road networks junking up the terrain. In those, these Ridge-and-Valley systems are generally labeled with Ridges, or occasionally by Mountains. Mountain Singular, I conjecture came about as an advertising side dish, like 'Lehigh Valley' and 'Delaware Valley', in announcements. Since 2004, this sort of issue generally gets limp noodle enthusiasm put to a vote, so best to resolve in a conversation like this. Its not worth the time to be politically engaged over. // FrankB 00:32, 30 March 2017 (UTC)
On reading your prior discussion and your response, I note two differences:
 • Blue Mountains - is for Australia, a world class chain, so important there as they have so few chains. (I Skype on line with a few Aussies, 16 hr diffs in schedules permitting).
 • IMHO, the proper name for Blue Mountain (Pennsylvania) is not as I pipetricked it in my edit, but Blue Mountains, Pennsylvania which would emphasize its cross-state extent. But THAT battle was one I haven't yet decided to fight, you know!? // FrankB 00:40, 30 March 2017 (UTC)
