It should not be re-entered without careful consideration.


rfd-sense: Proper noun, 2 senses: One derived from Star Trek, other a name of some conference. The first might be includable if it meets attributive use, eg, from groups. The other would be called spam if it came from a for-profit entity. DCDuring TALK 18:08, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
