Netherlands (terminology)[edit]

Hello Mary Parson Reid,

On the Netherlands (terminology) page I saw you made an addition to the intro of that page. The intro is only supposed to summarize the page without going too in depth into the subject. If you look farther down under the section 'Holland' it does goes mush more in depth about whether or not it is inaccurate. I undid your edit for now, but feel free to go back and undo mine if you think I'm wrong, or talk to me on my talk page about it. I've been Dealing with the Netherlands naming issue for quite a while and many are still shocked to discover that the Netherlands is not a sovereign state, strictly speaking. I look forward to hearing from you. Outback the koala (talk) 19:37, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

I've readded the world "inaccurately" as the intro should give a proper view. I left out the details as they are explained further below.--Fogeltje (talk) 22:52, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for replying, I understand you're position, and I agree with you. My concern was only the details meant for the main part of the article being in the introduction. I'm happy with the way Fogeltje has it now. Happy Editing :) Outback the koala (talk) 02:51, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
