Appropriate Writing Style[edit]

It looks as though one or more of the editors writing this page has intended it to be legitimate and decent, so therefore I am removing anything which is blatantly insulting. For example, claiming that someone is being a dick because they "want attention" is EXTREMELY degrading and rude. The first sentence I am removing, which relates to that, seems to "almost" be intended as reasonable, but combined with the fact that it comes after the sentence before it, is pretty much one of the most unjustifiably insulting things you could ever say to anyone (such insults such as "whore" or "ridiculously stupid" are just random insults and are not intended to arrogantly attack a human's character). I have seen several other Wikipedia pages which DO exist for the sole purpose of arrogantly degrading other human beings, but parts of this article make it seem as though some authors believe that this is not intended to be one of them.RayvnEQ (talk) 19:49, 14 May 2015 (UTC)Reply

Indeed. Frankly, I don't think we even need such vulgar wording on these kinds of pages, in my personal opinion. Tharthan (talk) 18:47, 16 May 2015 (UTC)Reply
