[edit] Bill S. Preston Esq.

The "Esq." is not in reference to the men's magazine of the same name but rather the name suffix.

Should the info be changed? --OX 15:18, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

When you look at the other instances, the Esquire double mean is the joke. Thus you just explained the joke. No, it won't be changed. wbwolf (t | ed) 15:58, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
The article doesn't explain the joke at all, though, it's just confusing. My interpretation of the joke is as follows: the first time, the logo reads Esq., you assume it's the title of social status, and the second time when it says GQ, you realize that Esq. could have also stood for the magazine - even though that abbreviation is typically only used to refer to the title. Regardless, this whole article strikes me as completely unnecessary, since Sbemailiarization has only occurred in two very closely related toons released a day apart. --Tim Tom

[edit] Featured Article? REALLY?!?

This isn't the type of article I picture as a Featured Article. Are we simply running out of pages to nominate? - Opus the Penguin 20:38, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

It's not very well written. It's only 4 sentences long and I had to read it over several times to understand what it's trying to say. It seems to me that half of it (2 sentences......) is explaining what a sbemail is. - Opus the Penguin 20:51, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
I agree and disagree with you at the same time, Opus. On one hand, I think that the article is written perfectly fine, though perhaps it could be expanded a little. On the other hand, the ENTIRE article fits in the featured article box. I feel that it's a little short to be featured, but that's because not many people try to help select them these days. There's about four of the same people who discuss it, and usually there's no clear consensus when the feature is written. If you feel that this article isn't worth featuring, Opus, (as do I), maybe you should suggest what you would like featured. I'm not trying to put the blame on you at all, it's just that the wiki as a whole doesn't have many people who select the featured articles. I feel that there should be more who want to get involved, write a letter to your local Homestarman, or throw a trash can through a plate glass window! {singing} And that's how I become featured!

It was featured to coincide with April Fools' Day. I remember thinking at the time (and I still think) that it was appropriate, despite how short the article is. — It's dot com 16:46, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
