Article capitalization

"sequences tend to be capitalized"

Well, they may tend to be capitalized, but should we have this stylistic exception? Any exceptions should be for a reason. --Vladimir Nesov 22:31, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
Sequence titles are capitalized because they're titles. That's not an exception to anything, it's a general rule.--Eliezer Yudkowsky 14:53, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
It's a general rule according to some widespread conventions, but not according to other widespread conventions. For example, titles in Mathematical Reviews (http://www.ams.org/mathscinet) are capitalized according to the rules for normal sentences (as near as I can tell). ---Tyrrell McAllister 23:56, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

Second Bill Joy article link in Singularity

In this edit, you removed a link to an article with reason "Bill Joy not considered especially insightful in these parts.". That article was in fact linked twice in the external links section, and you removed only one. Did you intend to remove all links to that article due to it being not insightful and simply miss the other link, or was the not especially insightful comment just referring only to it not needing two links?--Ete (talk) 08:00, 9 February 2014 (EST)
