Why not?

No idea. BTW the censored image was an image of a Scottish soldier with his kilt partly lifted to expose a portion of his bare buttocks. Auld Nick 12:09, 12 May 2007 (EDT)

The original version of the above can be found here. It has since been changed by Dpbsmith. Auld Nick 14:07, 12 May 2007 (EDT)
And I changed it without an edit comment, which was wrong and for which I apologize. The edit comment should have read "Replaced a link to a copy of an image that was deleted from Conservapedia as having 'pernicious intent,' with a description of that image."
Auld Nick, why do you think this image is appropriate for a Conservapedia encyclopedia article on kilts? Dpbsmith 14:45, 12 May 2007 (EDT)
What is unappropriate about soldiers wearing kilts? Auld Nick 15:10, 12 May 2007 (EDT)
Nothing is inappropriate about "soldiers wearing kilts." Something is inappropriate about "images including displays of exposed buttocks." The image you chose matches both descriptions. Also, something is inappropriate about copying images from the Associated Press which are virtually certain to be under copyright. Dpbsmith 15:45, 12 May 2007 (EDT)
If buttocks are inappropriate I will take your word for it. Buttocks are not something I spend time thinking about. It was an oversight on my part. Hopefully no small children or sensitive adults have been traumatized through exposure to the image. The question of copyrigt is a serious issue and it was quite correct to delete the image for that reason. Auld Nick 15:52, 12 May 2007 (EDT)

I would think that the kilt is a common enough word, and piece of clothing to merit its own page. No need to merge that I can see, although a link, in both directions, would make sense. Boomcoach 12:44, 7 December 2007 (EST)
