Long list of unsourced palindromesEdit

I am hesitant to add these to the page, because they would make this essentially just a reservoir of unsourced palindromes, and I fear destroy any hope of acquiring enough sourced ones

Pulled these off of

  • I'm not sure if this is a copyvio. Then trouble with palindromes is that we can make up any number ourselves!--Cato 08:56, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
I'm afraid Cato is right. Even if the material itself isn't original (and we can't easily verify this without sources or attributions), the particular selection and arrangement of the material has its own "compilation copyright" (aka "presentation copyright"), and reproducing the list in its entirety is a clear violation. The best thing to do with any list like this is to pick your favorites, find reliable sources, and add them to our article with the sources cited. This effort stamps our work with its own compilation copyright on behalf of all the editors of the article. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 22:59, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
