Can someone add the lithobraking comment? I'm having a hard time finding the original.

Here's the original source; someone else can add it.

In the sentence about the Nicoll Pledge, there should also be a remark about the "Nicoll Thread," which is a thread started for the purpose of increasing the on-topic content of a newsgroup.

The comment about Hollywood is me quoting someone else. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 19:21, March 25, 2006 (UTC) ? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 02:19, October 16, 2006 (UTC)

Footnote style[edit]

I've moved some of the references into footnotes; I'll do the rest when I get home, and split into "personal mishaps" and "book reviews" sections. Also, Google Groups's searches by message ID are broken at the moment, so I commented out the link to Usenet article <bi5d3u$hjl$> (2003), as it's broken until I can find the relevant Google Groups page and put in a real ref. grendel|khan 21:34, 7 June 2007 (UTC)[]

Please don't. Unless I have missed a dramatic change in recommended practices, that is not the Wikiquote style. And the Google Groups links work fine for me. 121a0012 01:30, 8 June 2007 (UTC)[]
