Bertrand "Bertie" Russell did not write anything for popular "consumption". Consumption is not the right word so it must be changed to something more apropriate.

Human: I agree with two out of the three edits you made to my edit of 1/7/11. I missed the use of "attempts", and while I knew that "base" was wrong, somehow I couldn't come up with the obvious correction to "basic". However, I think the word "that" should be reinstated. Otherwise there's a sentence with two main verbs. However, I defer to your vastly greater experience here. JosPinkfoot (talk) 01:04, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
- It's a parenthetical, it is allowed to be its own sentence within a sentence. Also, just to be lamely pedantic, to overcome dating conventions across our various oceans and other boundaries, it is best to mention the month ("1 July 2011"), because I was wondering what I did back in January for a bit there! PS, I prefer the system I don't use, and I prefer more the 2011.07.01 format. ħuman 06:45, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
- "It's a parenthetical". Well, maybe, if marked as such, perhaps by quotation marks. At the risk of invoking Godwin's Law, I offer for your consideration the parallel sentence "Hitler was a monster is beyond reasonable doubt". As for the date format: I live in the US and I've mostly gotten used to the local conventions, but sometimes I slip up. Mea culpa. JosPinkfoot (talk) 09:50, 5 July 2011 (UTC)
Just did my first edit on this page and not a too minor one either - added a reflist with a proper source in it, in order to let Bertrand be heard - as he actually pointed out specifically that he HAD been of the liberal, socialist and pacifist persuasion, but that he never "was" any of them in any serious sense at all. Thus it is seems to me incorrect for RW to introduce him as being any one of these three (atleast without further explanation and sources that may compete with his own statement to the contrary, in his biography). All comments, suggestions, criticisms, rants are welcome - it's literally my first day. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 16:00, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
