I thought I made it very clear in the edit summary why I reverted your edit on Orcs. It's copied from wikipedia. Yet you re-add it without stating a reason. Only add text you write yourself. You can use wikipedia as a basis, but we have a different [[Tolkien Gateway:Manual of Style|Manual of Style]], and [[:Template:HM|more precise referencing]]. --{{User:Ederchil/sig}} 17:58, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

That info on Orc origins from wikipedia was written by me. I think it gives a much better overall account of the various theories which Tolkien had over his life as to the origin of the orcs. I have included suitable quotes so I don't understand your reasons for removing it all and replacing it with an inferior description of orc origins. You make all the sense of a bottled sausage.

Orcs
