PNA -- I'm not sure what to make of this page, but it is in some serious need of attention, much less the fact it is an orphaned page. --Alan del Beccio 05:14, 14 Oct 2005 (UTC)

I'm not really sure either, but it got some attention and is no longer orphaned. I removed the PNA, feel free to still work on it... -- Cid Highwind

Im sorry. I cant resist. This should be a racial slur for Vulcans: ELF! Im so sorry, I had to do it. On topic: I thought it was Ambassador Pointy-Ears not Pointed Ear. Its Pointy EarS. With an S. ZephramCochran 02:16, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Merge Edit

Considering that this is used as an insult towards Spock and Spock I say that this be merged with Colorful metaphor as it's just an insult and I know we never really stored these pages except as redirects or similar. — Morder 18:22, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Oppose. Maybe a merge to something makes sense, but not "colorful metaphor," which was made pretty clear to be foul language and the like. Pointed-ear and hobgoblin may be descriptive and somewhat insulting (in one case not even that), but it isn't a swear like "double dumbass." --OuroborosCobra talk 18:59, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Heh, can't think of another page off-hand but you're right. Maybe a new page Insult or something, considering that most of these were spouted by McCoy. I just know we already move any other words/phrases to a common page seems we should in these cases as well. — Morder 19:09, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Maybe also Vulcan, since they were uniquely about Vulcans. --OuroborosCobra talk 19:25, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Well, this particular one was also in reference to Romulans. Garak and Jadzia Dax used it in that way. — Morder 19:34, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Morder, you spoon head! :) Nah, seriously, I support a merge to somewhere, just not necessarily to colorful metaphors. I would go for an insult page as you suggested, where we could have insult terms like "pointed-ear" or "Cardie" and the like. --From Andoria with Love 19:45, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
Oppose merge w/colorful metaphor. Instead of an insult page we could have an insult category, but either way such a move seems like a better idea.--31dot 20:33, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
What foul language in here! The Insult page seems like a good idea, and I can think of some expressions that are on their respected language pages that could be added to it as well as the terms already listed. - Archduk3:talk 02:40, November 21, 2009 (UTC)
