Lestatdelc 18:08, 28 Jul 2005 (PDT) There is a link that is waiting to be built, when I pulled a major article form Wikipedia on the Watergate scandal, which points to an article about controversies or scandals with '-gate' suffix. If we move that article over as well, (which might be nice since it gives more of them... that could be a good repository for a listing of and jumping off point to all the other "gate" scandals. So I would recommend we add this link [Scandals with '-gate' suffix] here in this entry as well.

  • DRolfe 21:17, 28 Jul 2005 (PDT) - Why not just add any examples that exist in our databse and then link to Wikipedia?
  • DRolfe 21:44, 28 Jul 2005 (PDT) - Anyhow, the reason I say just link it, is why bother copying over their text which includes lots of non-US (therefore, arguably, irrelevant) stuff. I think it would be pretty useful if scandals just linked to -gate and as such, the meta list could be built up from Special:whatlinkshere. (Oh, kinda like how As of 2004 is a meta-article for stuff that needs to be updated.)
Lestatdelc 02:06, 29 Jul 2005 (PDT) Fair point. I concur.
DRolfe 22:21, 30 Jul 2005 (PDT) Sweet! :-D
