Complexity of sustainability[change source]

From my Talk page: Clarity (talk) 14:44, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

You copy-pasted a very complex paragraph from En wiki, and I have removed it. Material from other wikis need to be brought in line with our guidelines. In particular, they need to be written in a much simpler manner so that readers whose English is weak can read it. In addition, there is just no point in duplicating unchanged En wiki material: readers know where to go if they want that kind of very detailed and complex material.

Thanks for your interest, Mac, but I didn't just copy-paste the paragraph, I added some simplifications, as noted in the edit summary here and I would have gone on to make more. I'm just newly back on the Simple English Wikipedia, after a long spell away, and with the patient guidance of you and other editors will try to improve as time goes on.
