Incorrect or obsolete definitons?

I've found a few definitions that are questionable at best and obsolete or incorrect at worst. Who should I contact in order to deal with this issue?

Hi Demothenes,

Thanks for getting in touch about this. With nearly 50,000 defintions in the dictionary, some do slip through the editorial net!

If you could either post the entries you've identified here, or email them to me at enquires@mondofacto.com, I would be most grateful. We will then work on improving them.

Once again, many thanks for taking the time to bring this to our attention.

Madame M.

I found "Prinzmetal's angina" under "Prinzmetal" but when I clicked on the link, there was no definition. What's gone wrong?

Hey Zoe.

I found the definition from that page: http://www.mondofacto.com/facts/diction ... 27s+angina

That page works fine.

Thanks :)

I also noticed that the word "instrument" is spelled "instrumnet" on http://mondofacto.com/dictionary/conten ... umnet.html.

I know it's not a big deal, but I just wanted to point it out in case edits are planned.

Some of these are typos missed following typing of the entry and others are dues to wild use of search and replace.
