Removing the "cunt" category[edit]

Removed category "cunt". I think this may be covered by our avoid personal abuse guideline.--Bob_M (talk) 04:37, 7 August 2007 (CDT)

Just checking to see what the guideline says, I see that the wording is: "Personal ""attacks"", however justified, are strongly frowned upon."--Bob_M (talk) 05:11, 7 August 2007 (CDT)

Australian, NZ and Asian businesses[edit]

Just thinking this article should have something on his Aus, NZ and Asian businesses, considering his strangle-hold on Australian media is even stronger than UK and US (and The Australian and The Telegraph are both good examples of media bias). I can do it myself, but I'm not that familiar with it, so if its anyone's forte, drop a mention here. If not, I'll have a stab at in when I get some time. --Llegar a las estrellas¿Dígame? 13:07, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Not to defend the scumbag but[edit]

I do not want to defend this horrible person, but "Moslem" is an older spelling of mulsim, I have seen it while doing a term paper years ago in college when I was using books from the late 19th and earily 20th century as sources. — Unsigned, by: 62.48.186.242 / talk

This is true, but antiquated terms are antiquated for a reason. Muslim is a closer transliteration. If you went back another hundred years, Musselmen would be a valid term, but now it's considered insulting. ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 13:05, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
Moslem, Muslim, IDGAF. Mahometan also works. SmartFeller (talk) 13:21, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Women knowing their place[edit]

Women #do# know their place(s) - which are quite different to where RM consigns them. 31.49.51.59 (talk) 09:55, 4 June 2017 (UTC)
