regarding the changes by[edit]

Many of these look they could be vandalism but I am unfamiliar with the quotes so I am not sure. Can any one check these? Jyuichi 19:51, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

I haven't checked other sources for the changes you mention [1], but they seem sufficiently odd that I'm sure they were pranks, so I've reverted them. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 16:47, 17 December 2006 (UTC)


This article has two serious cleanup needs:

  1. The subsections go well beyond the specific concept of disability, making this an unruly theme article with lots of off-topic quotes. Quotes that aren't specifically about disability or a well-defined subset of this theme should be moved elsewhere.
  2. Remaining quotes should be split into "Sourced" and "Unsourced" sections, with the sourced quotes having specific citations of their origin, preferably including page numbers, article or episode titles, and/or scene descriptions to make verifying them reasonable for other editors.

It would also be good to add a more specific introductory section which might avoid the "theme creep" that seems to have overcome this article. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 16:55, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

As a new user I am not sure that I went about this the right way, but I removed the vast majority of irrelevant quotes which made up a good portion of this page.

I noticed the massive deletion from the page, and was preparing to revert, but on examining what was removed, I agree, most did not seem to be appropriate for the page. Thanks for the edit. ~ Kalki 00:07, 14 November 2009 (UTC)
I removed this one from pain; it's already listed on Lois McMaster Bujold

I have moved some other quotes to more appropriate places (IMO); see this diff. It may be that this page was intended to be about people with disability (e.g. Max Lerner might have been here since his optimism was in the context of illness?). That wasn't sufficiently clear to me. I could envision Kahlo's quote on a page on illness, but there isn't one at present, so I've left it for now. Jodi.a.schneider 02:07, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
