Possible copyvio[edit]

Part of this appears to be copy-pasted from the AP article:

  • "... say that Hitler's role in German history.[sic]" verusus "Defenders of the exhibit say Hitler's role in German history is too important to be ignored." from AP. Insertion of one word and deletion of a portion of a sentence != paraphrasing. --Thinboy00's Global Sock 07:24, 6 July 2008 (UTC)[reply]
I don't think that's copyvio. At least that's my opinion. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 07:41, 6 July 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Berlin, Germany[edit]

Oh come on. Is that really necessary? It's not like Germany's a US state and cities have to be listed by country. Surely our readers know where "Berlin" is?! Harris Morgan (talk) 09:29, 6 July 2008 (UTC).[reply]

I tend to agree with this. I'm sure there's probably more than one Berlin in the world (American settlers were unimaginative in naming towns and cities in their country). However, if you've also got "Hitler" in the title it is a no-brainer which Berlin you mean. --Brian McNeil / talk 10:03, 6 July 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Yes; I would be sympathetic if there were real ambiguity (e.g. Halifax which could mean either the British city or the Canadian one). Thanks to User:Mike Halterman for moving the page. Harris Morgan (talk) 13:45, 6 July 2008 (UTC).[reply]
