This is not the only Ghostbusters reference within the game. Do a search of Ghostbusters, and you get Ghozer Dhuum, Iggon, and Old Woman River, and also The Four Horsemen. 05:25, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Granted, but the actual line from the movie is "Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria." The message is completely different from what Fredek is trying to convey. Headmaster Amara performs the same kind of augury, which seems to be a Kurzick tradition. --Irgendwer 05:43, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
The verb was ultimately wrong, and symbolizing a truce through unexpected relations in animals is common in narratives. Plus, as Irgendwer pointed out, the message is very different than the one in Ghostbusters. The other trivia is also quite a stretch, but I haven't seen that particular movie.

And you point would be? There are many references and inferences that do not exactly match the original. Too numerous to mention. 07:16, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
Did someone get verification directly from Anet that this is or is not a reference? That seems to be what happens on other "questionable" similarities. 07:22, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
Changing every word, as well as the meaning, is not paraphrasing as your edit summary said. Besides, you're still currently blocked for your violations of GWW:1RV. Please stop pushing these issues, it gets tiresome. G R E E N E R 10:55, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
