page name issues

Hi, you're doing great work, but you've been editing pages that have some dKosopedia:page name issues without renaming them. Please review dKosopedia:page name issue and comment. If you don't agree, say so. If you do agree, please implement the name changes next time you edit the page, or be ready to watch the pages move around possibly breaking some links. It's impossible to ask others to track shifting page names, so it's critical to follow conventions.

Specifically, Drug War fuses the question of the questionable term:war on drugs with the specific DEA terror involved, and impacts on other countries. Just calling it a "war" and capitalizing it like World War II only fuzzes the difference between types and motives ofmilitary action, and really only plays into Bush's hand. We want to be constantly questioning these terms, not reinforcing them. You seem to be trying to reframe:drug war in some way, so why not call it that instead?

See The dKosopedia Category Project and FrameShop for background on some of the more sophisticated issues in political wikis and namespace conventions needed for these.

Hi M-246, Anonymous troll has made similar threats/demands to several other frequent contributors to this site. I don't like his attitude, and I have written User:Centerfielder about it, since he seems to be the senior sysadmin. I really appreciate your work, and I hope that you'll join me in protesting AT's actions. -- Corncam 09:14, 24 May 2006 (PDT)
