comment What Factors Have Led to the Duration of US Copyrights Continuously Increasing?
Sorry, but you have really blurred the lines between Copyright and Trademarks. A Copyright DOES identify ownersip in a tangible property. Also, I had to give a downvote because your answer crosses the line between answering and providing opinion.

comment Book on history of international trade
I am going to convert this to a community wiki. I can see some relevance in the request, but it doesn't truly fit our question/answer model. As Luke stated, asking for recommendations that result in a list or ongoing discussions doesn't really fit within our guidelines.

If you are going to downvote an answer, at least be kind enough to provide a justification for doing so.

comment Why did the United States enter World War I?
I downvoted this because it doesn't really gave a substantive answer. If you would care to provide some supporting information to further your case, I'll be happy to reverse it.

comment Why did the US, Britain, France, Denmark and Sweden vote against the UN resolution that condemned Nazism and SS glorification?
We need to refrain from the ongoing discussions regarding the answers to this question. Please use the chat room for ongoing discussions. This question is only borderline in regards to the SE guidelines because it leaves open the possibility for opinion in giving an answer. If we get another answer that borders on opinion, I will have to lock or possibly even close this question.

I am converting this to a communit wiki. It has true historical merit, but it really doesn't ask a question that has one clearly defined answer.

comment Looking for a book about Haile Selassie's rise to power
Please modify this question to aske for something specific to be answered. Any question that solicits sources, lists, discussion, or opinion are not appropriate for this site. I don't disagree that this is a pertinent topic for history, but if you choose to leave this in its current form it will be converted to a community wiki.

comment Is there any documentation that indicates the Aztecs were as violent as they are made out?
I modified this question to make it more suitable for the site. The alternative, given the way it was worded, was to outright delete it, but I felt that the base question meritted consideration.

comment Explosive Ordinance Yield Over History
Could you please clarify your question? Are you asking about the yield of explosive devices over time, or the effectiveness of firearms in controlling crowds throughout time? Explosive ordnance would not be used for crowd control (normally), so the two seem to be at odds with one another. Please clean it up to be more specific or break it out into two separate questions.

comment Did any of the 50 Destroyers swapped for bases with Great Britain in 1940 sink any Axis military vessels?
Here is a link to another question which I just converted to a community wiki. Most of the answers provide links to openlibrary.org, which in turn provides links to a number of vendors. I think this is a better way of handling these types of situations. history.stackexchange.com/q/1623/85

comment Resources on the History of African Civilization
I appreciate the links to openlibrary.org rather than linking to a sepcific vendor. Also, I am converting this to a community wiki since it really doesn't fit our question guidelines. Since the information is relevant and of interest to the community, I feel the wiki would be a better fit.

comment Did any of the 50 Destroyers swapped for bases with Great Britain in 1940 sink any Axis military vessels?
@E1Suave - You make a good point, but SE is about providing information, not sales references. If someone refers to a specific book that might have newer revisions, then that should be included in the answer. This can be done without providing a link to purchase the book. The main point is that SE does not want to be seen promoting one vendor over another.

Just for future reference, if you actually own this book, it would be helpful if you could give a specific example from the book itself. This answer as it stands is not very complete and would benefit greatly from such an example.

I tend to agree that it isn't appropriate to link to a commercial vendor. While I can appreciate the intention to provide easier access to a more complete accounting of the information, I'm pretty confident that anyone could find the actual book themselves.

This type of question doesn't really fit our format, but rather than close it, I am going to convert it to a community wikki entry. I think that this is something that may be helpful to others who might visit our site.

If you are going to give a posting a downvote, at least have the decency to explain why!
