CLEAR rejection of an arrogant and fanatically obsessive IMPOSITION by ONE person of an UNPOPULAR citation styling


I restored this page to a more standard citation styling here, one that has been used on MOST pages here since 2003, removing one which has been relatively RARELY used, save in copy and pastes from 19th and very early 20th century public domain tomes, prior to a MASSIVE one person campaign by an irresponsibly deceitful person to impose this styling over HUNDREDS of pages, because what appears to be an intellectual laziness or moral decrepitude fails to appreciate the FACT that it is generally UNPOPULAR, and the sole OTHER person who has thus far, for a time expressly supported its adoption, in the years in which it has been discussed, conceded that it was UGLY, and soon after rescinded any support of it.

I thus clearly state this was NOT "seemingly random removal of punctuation as found in original citations" it was DELIBERATE removal of UNNEEDED, UNDESIRED and NONSTANDARD punctuation here, which has been repeatedly rejected by MOST people, and and REPUDIATED by MOST people who have commented upon the matter. Attempts to minimize and dismiss or trivialize that fact are DISGUSTING exhibitions of DICTATORIAL arrogance. ~ Kalki·· 04:07, 7 January 2015 (UTC) + tweaksReply
