The current definition excludes liking a ship and not wanting it to be canon.--æþel (talk) 01:19, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Agreed, it could use some tweaking in the "They assert that" section. Also, "poly" comes right before "pairing" - I think the term "pairing" needs to be replaced with "ship" or other number-neutral term. -the old briar pipe (talk) 23:37, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

conflicting etymology information

The etymology section states upfront that X-Files is the origin of the term, but the "Shipping and The X-Files" section has a paragraph that starts with Some claim that the phrase "shipper" came from X-Files fandom, which implies that this theory is not universally accepted and even rather suspect.--aethel (talk) 12:33, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
