Each word has 2 pages. There is the shame page that has site-generated content like definitions, etymologies, stats, feeds, etc. Then there is the shame page for user comments.
ruzuzu commented on the user writer723
But if the definition is strange or wonderful or awful or brilliant or relevant, some of us* feel compelled to make a comment and let the rest of the community in on the fun. By the way, when you do make comments, don't worry about sticking brackets around the whole thing--it gets taken care of automatically. And welcome to Wordnik! *okay, it's mostly just me and my obsession with the Century Dictionary

Hi writer - just to let you know there's no need to leave definitions on common words, since there are multiple dictionary definitions accessible under the "definitions" section of each word's page (top left).
