of the web, there is a difference between a web site (even if it
is only a single page with only a sentence of text) and a web
page (even if it is a very large web page).  Call it pedantic,
but I cringe when I see example.com/foo/bar/wibble.html
described as a web site.

But we also discourage automated edits, which this appears to be.
Even if manual confirmation is required, it's still an automated edit.
An automated edit which was re-applied even after I indicated that
I had chosen webpage deliberately.  No further discussion, just one
user imposing his choice.  The logical consequence of "any right
to modify" is an edit war, and we discourage those, too.

No,  but at least it would change "non standard" to "documented but I don't
like it anyway" for the reason he'll have to give for his changes.

It was in use, until this user went around deleting it.  Whether it was a
idea or not is another matter.

That's why I asked.
