Can you please explain why you removed the information for making the poisons from Smoke bomb, Hallucination poison, Bloat poison, Gp poison and Venom poison? Is it outdated? Did Lexx ask for it to be removed?
You did not provide a summary of the changes to explain it, which would have been nice.
I'm going to revert those changes for now. See also Talk:Main_Page#Poisons.
I have replied to your post on my talk page regarding 'Issues with knowledge that shouldn't be on here'. You can find my reply on my talk page.
In reply to your post: Emily probably has captured my thoughts (better than I ever could!), so I'll just say that I also am on the fence. I can see why you wouldn't want it spelled out, but it would be nice to at least have a component list. To know that a poison has "belladonna" and "frog skins" and "tears of an sad elephant" isn't the same as spelling out exactly how those items go together, in what quantity, and with what solvent. (Assassins have solvents, yes? Never having had an assassin alt, I don't know, but I thought I read that somewhere.)
