  • 16:06, 28 June 2008 Centrx (talk | contribs | block) (2,664 bytes) (Don't blanket revert; "and/or" is not clearer and there is not much of any discussion about it; you did not respond to the problems with "obliged", which appear never to have been discussed)

  • 11:54, 15 November 2007 David Levy (talk | contribs | block) (1,449 bytes) (Reverted. Centrx correctly noted that an essay _may_ enjoy wide agreement. Omitting the word "merely" doesn't convey that it definitely does, but it allows for the possibility.)
  • 10:55, 15 November 2007 DreamGuy (talk | contribs | block) (1,456 bytes) (essays don't necessarily have wide agreement, and many conflict with each other, so rationale given in the edit comment for the last change was made under a false assumption)
