@Bongolian Isn't that book divided into chapters? If it is, you might want to split the citation up. Nerd (talk) 04:02, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

Yes, it is, but at this point I'd rather not. Bongolian (talk) 04:04, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
Fair enough. You did provide the page numbers after all. But boy, that repeated citation is quite remarkable, even for me, the kid to likes to reuse his sources to exhaustion. That's not a criticism. :-) Nerd (talk) 04:09, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
It's unusual because it's really the only reliable non-primary source of information for a man whose life was quite bizarre. Bongolian (talk) 04:11, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
I understand. To be completely fair, now that I think of it, my ongoing massive revision of universal healthcare relies a lot on a single (but highly informative and reliable) source. It does not appear that way to a casual observer because the citation of that book is split up according to the chapters. They do not appear in numerical order; nor are they consecutive. Nerd (talk) 04:14, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
Another point of note, the Wikipedia article on Trebitsch is crap: it's poorly referenced, it includes inaccuracies and probably outright bullshit (the alleged letter protesting the Holocaust). Bongolian (talk) 04:20, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
Indeed it is. They admitted that much themselves. In a somewhat similar manner, our very own universal healthcare is a serious competitor against universal healthcareWikipedia, if I may say so myself. It is usually the case that our articles are inferior in quality, that is, depth of content, compared to our more famous cousin. Nerd (talk) 14:46, 15 December 2018 (UTC)


Copying my comment from the Demotion page: The article needs a better intro. The top of the article is barely two paragraphs long, and reading the intro leaves me with no idea as to who this person was. The body of the article is good, but the intro does it no justice.
