[en] Possible rule - 2018-03-13

Hello @Mike_Unwalla

Maybe this could be implemented as a redundancy rule?:
“In my homepage I share knowledge not found anywhere else.”

Suggesting replacing:
“anywhere else"
with
"elsewhere”
?

Thank you!

Hi @marcoagpinto , although the terms have approximately the same meaning, they are not exact synonyms. Refer to https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/anywhere%20else and https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/elsewhere.

Elsewhere can also be used to indicate a location, undefined beyond the fact that it’s not the previous location… (EG: While he searched for her in the forest, she was canoeing elsewhere)
so one could argue that the ‘elsewhere’ in question is, for example, a parked site… (legalese nitpicking)
as such “anywhere else” is easier to test for falsehood.
