Off-topic comment[edit]

Is there not a delightful irony in the fact that the phrase embroidered by Jimmy Wales, "user's manual", has in fact since been removed from the article in this edit? I think there's a lesson there for us all. GrindtXX (talk) 18:12, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Wording quibble[edit]

Parker invited royalty to contribute to the work, but they declined. She said that right-wing people were more likely to decline; both Gordon Brown and Alex Salmond also declined to contribute.

The part after the semicolon gives the impression that these individuals' decision not to participate was linked to their political views. However, as far as I can see, there is no evidence to support this in the source. Perhaps they just didn't have the time or interest. 109.145.19.122 (talk) 20:31, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
