Welcome to my user page[edit]

Hope you like my contributions. Before I say anything else:

Face-angel.svg This user tries to do the right thing. If they make a mistake, please let them know.

This particularly applies when I'm doing one too many edits at 2 in the morning! So apologies in advance.

On a side note, I'm a great believer in Hanlon's razor: "Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity."

Useful Code[edit]

I've put some useful code here to help my edits. Feel free to use if you want!

My personal notes on vandalism are here

Baha'i Faith[edit]

Although I do now occasionally contribute to the Baha'i pages on wikipedia, I am still largely reticent. Most of the published secondary source information has been produced by Baha'is themselves or by enemies setting out to discredit the Baha'i Faith. Therefore I think it is impossible to create accurate, fair neutral articles whilst still adhering to the policies on No Original Research.
