I took care of it Brian by deleting it as you suggested. Thanks for delinking the big-F version.

"Moving" a page in the MediaWiki software doesn't mean move, interestingly enough. It actually means "copy from A to B, and have A redirect to B." This leaves a duplicate redirect pages out there that we can clean up eventually.

For now I'm catching these duplicates as I see them, making sure they aren't linked from anywhere, and deleting them manually. It's not the best process but I'm happy to take care of the housecleaning. :) If you see any more like this, post them here or email Flossary@fool.com and we'll take care of 'em.

Jeremy
