Review of revision 4323425 [Passed][edit]

@Acagastya: I just checked and I'm a bit in the dark as to what you mean by placeholders. There are a few reasonable possibilities. Do you mean some of my ALLCAPSFILLTHISINLATER was still there when I hit review? I just checked and that doesn't seem to be it. Do you mean someone started an article about this before I did? I don't see it in the hopper. Darkfrog24 (talk) 16:11, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
I generally use first titles as placeholders.

If this is the country of origin issue, then yes best that was fixed. I tend to think U.K. when I hear "Parliament" by itself, but it's certainly true that more than one country has one. (Whereas this wouldn't necessarily be necessary for the Diet or the Taoiseach.) If you mean tense, the title was in the present tense, as in "Congressional baseball practice [has been/is] targeted by shooter." The "targeted" is more like an adjective than like a verb. Unless you mean active vs passive voice, of course. Darkfrog24 (talk) 18:25, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
Not everyone knows about Diet or Taoiseach. Two months ago, if I was asked what is national diet or Taoiseach, I could not have answered. "National Diet"? "Must be something the citizens are supposed to eat? Is that a rule in North Korea?" That might have been my response. Taoiseach — must have something to do with Tao's philosophy. Not everyone across the planet knows or thinks like you.
I am pretty sure the headlines that's was used when the article was submitted did not follow Headlines.

"Taoiseach" has phonaesthetics similar to Klingon.

And I would have known if someone would record a AWN.
