Unclear Description: Peace And Love Incorporated get usage counts

I upvoted the "keep euphemisms" option as no one has given an argument against.

I did... a few posts ago...

If you mean @39, then I've already addressed it in @40. Also, this is a trope about corporations painting themselves an image that looks better than they really are; the usage of euphemisms is entirely appropiate in this context.

Needs a few more votes.

Removing them entirely is the only one in green, but it still needs more votes.

One last vote bump. "Clean up the description and remove the euphemisms entirely." is the only option in green with 10-4.

Calling for cleanup and euphemish purging.

I went with Smythe's description, but without the euphemism. If no one has any thoughts on this, I'll ask for locking.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Page Action: Peace And Love Incorporated
28th Aug '13 4:09:00 PM
What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
Peace And Love Incorporated is currently a Self Demonstrating Article that relies on sinkholed euphemisms to get the point across.

All options, except "do nothing," will involve moving the current description to the SelfDemonstrating/ namespace.
