One thing that always make me laugh with this is that you will have "chairperson" or "spokesperson," but anything negative is still male - hitman, conman. --KotomiTHajimemashite! 09:28, 20 September 2008 (EDT)

LOL - I also like it when a chairperson becomes simply a chair, though I've never heard of a spokesperson becoming a spoke... Bugler 09:31, 20 September 2008 (EDT)
I've heard people say "chairperson", though I can't say I've seen policeperson, fireperson, postperson actperson or waitperson. I have seen "waitstaff" to refer to the whole group of waiters, waitresses, and the rest (busboys, etc). HelpJazz 17:22, 30 September 2008 (EDT)
Excuse me, but I believe you meant "buspersons". :-P -Foxtrot 21:05, 1 October 2008 (EDT)

Before there is another edit-war over the capitalisation of "liberal" - in the context of this article it should be lower case as it refers to a generic political philosophy rather than the member of a Liberal political party. Let us have no more petty silliness bout this. BrianCo 16:25, 1 October 2008 (EDT)
