:Of course, once that happens. I'm not a fan of "user-generated content" because it has a [http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/words-to-avoid.html#Content dirty word in it], but I do want to eventually have an article about [[wikipedia:Prosumer#Producer and consumer|prosumption]] to complement what's already in [[Single-screen multiplayer#Why?]]. It's just that a lot of times, after having saved a page here, at Wikipedia, or at TV Tropes, I find an error that I missed in preview (or an error in an area that the wiki software doesn't even allow previewing). So I go through the page again, and I find and fix more errors. When only one of these fixes isn't [[wikipedia:help:minor edit|too minor for dispute]], that's the fix that ends up described in the edit summary, occasionally with something like "[http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=also%2C+cocks Also speling]" [sic] after it. Fixing something else at the same time helps me not [[allthetropes:Serial Tweaker|flood Recent Changes]], and it helps cover my behind for having introduced a [[allthetropes:Wikipedia Syntaxer|syntax error]]. --[[User:Tepples|Tepples]] 16:01, 14 January 2011 (MST)

::Could you clarify why you believe so strongly in the GNU Project's position on the word ''c 0 ntent'' and, in particular, why it is worth [[Special:Prefixindex/MediaWiki:Ex|customizing MediaWiki system messages]] over this? (Note: I am not disputing the validity of your edits, and especially not the "written entirely by" wording in MediaWiki:Excontentauthor.) What do you intend to accomplish?
