Non-Canon Information Edit

I am concerned about the level of non-canon information being placed in this article. For one we never heard Bligh being referred to as Lieutenant. --BorgKnight (talk) 04:12, January 11, 2014 (UTC)

'Captain' Bligh refers to his position as the commanding officer of the Bounty. His actual rank while in command was Lieutenant. Catiline63 (talk) 11:21, January 11, 2014 (UTC)
That's irrelevant. It's "real world" information. At worst that can be in a BG note, at best, it should simply be unlisted here and if people want more information, they can read it at Wikipedia. -- sulfur (talk) 13:11, January 11, 2014 (UTC)
Not irrelevant at all. Captain is not just a rank, it's also a position. One can hold the position of captain (or acting captain), without holding the rank of captain. Catiline63 (talk) 23:13, January 12, 2014 (UTC)
