I noticed your bot going through and doing this. "Alternative" is suitable in British English, but in American English "alternate" is fine. This can cause problems if the bot is changing the word use without regards to which grammatical variation is used. Also, I write a lot of articles about [[alternative rock]]-related subjects, and using "alternate" helps avoid confusion in many cases. When the bot changes the word usage, it can makes things unclear in the prose. [[User:WesleyDodds|WesleyDodds]] ([[User talk:WesleyDodds|talk]]) 09:44, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
 
: Right, it's starting to look like there's a pretty clear consensus that this is a pretty 'unsafe' edit to do. It's too context-dependent and there are too many issues to be considered. I'll stop the bot from doing this. Thanks for your input! Cheers, [[User:CmdrObot|CmdrObot]] ([[User talk:CmdrObot|talk]]) 23:51, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
