... Like the question are spelled incorrectly?--Zachary Yan (talk) 18:19, 17 March 2014 (PDT)
nvm I get it.--Zachary Yan (talk) 18:22, 17 March 2014 (PDT)

"questions on excess general knowledge" sounds weird, but otherwise the current vision looks alright. The older vision was kinda redudant using both "distribution" and "excess".--Zachary Yan (talk) 19:05, 17 March 2014 (PDT)

I thought you were told to stop trying to write articles until you became literate in the English language? I congratulate you on (no doubt accidentally) rediscovering the obscure form "eschewal" in your attempt to "clarify" the meaning of an ordinary word, though.

Whoops that was me. I think it's a safe assumption that someone who knows what "eschew" means can probably ascertain the definition of "eschewal." James Zhou (talk) 21:37, 17 March 2014 (PDT)
