Data deduplication[edit]

Hello. Regarding your edit to Data deduplication with the comment 'Adding back the "broader and more general" statement. It is pretty clear that in this sentence, "Deduplication" is a broader and more general form of compression': no, it wasn't clear. Deduplication is a broader and more general form of compression than what? Which forms of compression are less broad and less general than deduplication? It's like saying "A bulldog is a larger dog". Comparative adjectives imply a comparison, which implies something being compared to.

It's academic because someone else reworded the paragraph, but I wanted to point this out. —Largo Plazo (talk) 18:16, 30 July 2010 (UTC)



Largoplazo. Yes, academic... You asked "Deduplication is a broader and more general form of compression than what?" The answer is "Than compression" You then asked, "Which forms of compression are less broad and general?" The answer, "All of them" You also commented that my comparison was like saying a bulldog is a larger dog. In your example, the implicit comparison was to a particular type of dog, which was lacking a comparative operator. My comparison to compression was to all compression algorithms. Thus, my comparison was actually more like the statement "Great Danes are larger than others." The comparison is obvious, it is to all dogs. Perhaps your point was that I need to write to a lower grade level, because implicit comparisons aren't comprehensible. Well OK point taken.
