I am a former Boxer turned professional writer (unlike some of the wannabes on here I have my bonafides) covering Fight Sports (Mixed-Martial Arts, Boxing, Collegiate and Olympic Wrestling), Firearms, Gun Rights in Nevada, Independent Movies and Martial arts (Traditional and Modern Combatives) for a variety of online and print outlets. Wikipedia has helped me with my professional writing, especially with regard to finding good sources. An awesome resource on here is: Tony1's prose suggestions.

As far as the critics/vandals/deletionisrs/POV Warriors on here, a wise magazine editor once told me, "If those losers had any real talent, they'd be getting paid for their work and not writing on the internet for free." Sometimes I think I should listen to him and throw in the towel on wiki. The hours suck, the pay sucks, you often deal with critics who could be compared to eunuchs in a harem: they see it done every night, they know how it's done every night, but really can't do it themselves.

For now I still believe in the project, except for some of the losers it attracts. I really don't care about losers, but sometimes it's fun to watch them dance.

Sadly, too few disputes here seem to be independently resolved well. Your actions at an AfD are deeply appreciated and deserve recognition. VQuakr (talk) 00:32, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
