"The semantics of hit vs beat" The definition of 'hit' is a single strike, while the definition of 'beat' is to repeatedly and violently hit.
As I said before, Wiki Pern prefers 'facts' to 'supposition'. Since I am not an admin and I do not make the rules, I cannot make a ruling.
But, from my own point of view: 1) where you said, "I didn’t make anything up," 2) after you said, "The second section of my response (the part not in quotation marks) are my own words, not from the book," 3) and "it seems likely with nothing from the books to back it up"
I have to wonder why we are even having this conversation, because if there's nothing in the books, the sentence that I deleted from the character page was your fabrication.
I also have to wonder what your stated "Relationships between green riders and brown/blue riders" has to do with this discussion - because Kylara is not a green rider and T'bor is neither a brown or a blue rider.
And, last but not least, when I edit character pages, my goal is to either correct incorrect information whenever possible or remove incorrect information when I am not able to find a reasonable explanation for the incorrect information.
