Headline violates NPOV policy

Does not pass NPOV. "Reneges" is a POV term showing editorial bias. (talk)03:00, 6 February 2012

The issue was brought up on the article collaboration page (which is a more appropriate place for it).

Two notes here, as they pertain to the form of the comment here.

  • "Violation of policy" seems melodramatic; this was a poor word choice.
  • Your use of the word "showing" is also a poor choice. WN:Never assume advises not to needlessly overgeneralize criticisms. The word "suggesting" would have been better, as that addresses the subjective appearance of the title. "Showing" suggests proof of something, and the choice of reneges does not definitively determine why the author chose it. (As reviewer, I hesitated over it, consulted the Wiktionary entry for renege, still wasn't sure, and finally shrugged and let it stand; live and learn, I'll likely be more proactive if presented with a similar situation in future.)
