Purpose: To provide an index of pages listing references to people - living or dead.---- To get a list of pages describing people, click on the title above.
To add a page to this category, add a link to Category Person to the page.
It is, however, the consequence of an open community where various people decide on categories and add them.
I've no recollection on why someone decided to create which ever of the two came second of the above - probably because the other didn't seem relevant. If I were a betting person, I'd bet that Home Page was first, but someone came along and thought "oh, that page isn't my home page - these pages are really just a description of the person..."
Now, because the situation exists, we have what I think of as the PE syndrome, where if someone were to want to fix things, there is a fear, at least from people around the wiki for a while, of being flamed because they removed something from a page that someone else wanted.
