Description Gordon Wayne Watts 2005-06-30 23:26:38 UTC
I went to my watchlist page: and then proceeded to 
look at the "Race and Intelligence" page. It shows that most recent edit to have been as such:

Race and intelligence; 05:01 . . Zen-master (Talk) (intro clarity improvements (article still needs 
a lot more work to be presented scientifically and neutrally))

However, when I clicked on "hist," I saw diffs that were more recent than this one! I suspect that 
the article may have had its name (title) changed from "Race and Intelligence" to "Race and IQ" and 
then back to its original title, possibly confusing my watchlist. Evidence from that comes from 
these two entries on my watchlist -both for the 30th of June 2005:

(diff) (hist) . . Race and IQ; 15:34 . . Ed Poor (Talk) ("...the black-white IQ gap is in large 
measure a reflection of differences in reasoning and problem-solving ability.") 


(diff) (hist) . . Race and intelligence; 22:54 . . Zen-master (Talk) (rv, vfd and totallydisputed 
are two completely different issues and headers)

I am most easliy reachable by either email at or my user page in

If it's important, or if you like, you may contact me through any of the other means listed on my 
pages and on the web, such as land line telephone, but I'm sure that this is not a "high priority." 
Thank you for your inquiry and efforts.

Assuming this was either temporary lag or due to temporary upgrade wackiness.
