Moved from page[edit]

In a particularly backward example, at the Nuremburg Trials, even though they where responsible for literally raping every woman they could find west of Moscow following victory at Kursk, the Soviet Union were equal prosecutors of the Nazis, themselves guilty of war crimes.

Fine. Put it in an article, it doesn't belong in the category description - David Gerard (talk) 22:17, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Many categories have a 2/3 line description. Lets not make an issue out of it. 86.40.197.8 (talk) 22:20, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
As I said in my edit comment, there is really no article to put it in. Lyra § talk 22:25, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
Category pages aren't the place for editorial comment. The phrase "literally raping every woman" is wrong anyway - see this for instance. The Red Army were vicious, it's true, but don't use phrases like "literally every" when you can't prove it.
If you want an article on this, create one. Don't fight on a category page. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 23:05, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
You do realise that the link you posted strengthens the point? Anyways, its uber gay to get into an edit war over this. If people think its improper to have a 2/3 line blurb then so be it. Its a stupid thing to get in a tissy about. MarcusCicero (talk) 23:09, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
No, it doesn't. For a start, it uses the age range 10-80. I'll freely acknowledge that's a sickening range, but you can't use a phrase that means "every single one, no exceptions at all" with impunity. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 23:28, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
