We need to be careful about drawing conclusions about possible correspondences between real-world locations and the legendarium (Tolkien himself refused to analyse the LotR as an analogy). In case no one disagrees, I will remove the (current) note on inspiration.--Morgan 17:18, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Agreed. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 17:35, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Disagreed (willing to elaborate if asked) Sage 15:34, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
+1 (on the condition that a source to a Tolkien scholar is given, like in the current situation). --Amroth 16:00, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
Sage: please, elaborate. --Morgan 16:15, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
(Side note: whatever is decided here can we at least agree to take this out of an "Inspiration" heading. I doubt we'll get any proof that Tolkien was inspired by the Atlantic Ocean.) --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 16:28, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
Disagree --Amroth 16:38, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
