Re. Down by the Water
I finally bought the album, and although I love it, there are so many melodic/musical similarities... like Margaritaville, or Wake Up...not to mention his own work in Tarkio! - Theornamentalist (talk) 04:42, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Welcome to Wikipedia! I am glad to see you are interested in discussing a topic. However, as a general rule, talk pages such as Talk:Larry Norman are for discussion related to improving the article, not general discussion about the topic. If you have specific questions about certain topics, consider visiting our reference desk and asking them there instead of on article talk pages. Thank you. I don't appreciate you pointing people to my personal page nor do I appreciate you telling me how to live my life. More importantly, it's not appropriate for a talk page on a subject who is not me.

I don't understand
I do not delete text. I merely correct misspelled words and grammar - like the professor writing on the walls of the restroom :)
I noticed your edit to Megali Mantineia, which corrected "inhabiants" somewhere down the page, but completed failed to spot the obvious, and obviously incorrect "The old school, built i 1743-53" in the very last line, along with three other typos and misspellings. That was staggeringly incompetent, and gives me the impression that you're not even bothering to read the articles, or indeed read the start and end of the articles that you're correcting. The mistake above was particularly bad. Your kind of dabbling but sloppy work is likely to do more damage to Wikipedia than the deletions you have spent every month of your life for the last six years correcting, so I would love it if you stopped attacking editors who are focusing on different aspects of Wikipedia than you are.

Your challenge at How now brown cow
Off Site Canvassing
Hello Ashley. Thank you for your posting the "off site canvassing" email you received from User:Bzuk with regard to "No Highway in the Sky". This editor is a long story as he is one who basically does not like to have his particular views on anything (particularly formatting and a variety of other issues some of which he has self admitted as being done to be "petty") ever challenged or questioned in any way. I am used to discovering his canvassing in other WP forums made without his advising me (although this is the first time I have been made aware of his also doing so "off site" as well), but not to worry I can take care of myself. (I don't know where he came up with the impression that I am a John Wayne fan, however, as I am not.) With that out of the way, you certainly have a really super photography blog which I found linked on your user page which, by the way, I think is wonderfully written. I have bookmarked it and will now follow regularly. I do both SLR digital photography -- mostly of railroads -- as well as digital image restoration of all kinds. (See my user page for links to my many other photography and history web sites.) Thanks for your support in the "off site canvassing" issue and making me aware that it happened. I have asked Bzuk to not do it again. Centpacrr (talk) 20:17, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Hi Ashley - I noticed you contributed in some way to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motion_control_photography so I thought you might be interested in the fact that I have created Mark Roberts Motion Control. Could you please look it over and make sure I've done it right. I'm hoping you might like to contribute to it too.
I had a look through your Wiki bio and 2 things struck me - your mention of Monty Python. I must be one of the world's biggest Python fans having met all of the living Pythons. I've been bonkers about it since 1973. I also saw that you mentioned the original Brighton Rock movie. Well my mum happened to be at its 1947 premiere as you can see in the leftmost pic, second row from the top here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.464385394013.260043.517774013&type=1&l=addc32f450 Setomorp (talk) 04:34, 25 October 2011 (UTC)
File:Muhself.jpg listed for deletion
A file that you uploaded or altered, File:Muhself.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you.

In May 2008, you asked a question at Talk:Penelope Tree#Drugs. I have just left a response for you. (Better late than never.) If you wish to respond, please do so over there. HairyWombat 20:05, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
That bit where you explain how you're the first to alter Richard Attenborough's entry seems to link to a bit about the death of his grand-daughter Lucy. It's just a bit bad taste. It's the 'I put that in' bit. Also - were you the guy on e2 who got very, very excited about 'A Flock Of Seagulls', because I really respect that... AFOS is the real deal. They're not a *specific* flock, just a flock. Of seagulls, man... any flock, any place... all those rooms are empty. It's like when Gary muses 'and I can think for myself'. Yeah. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 00:38, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi , I stumbled upon your name and see your Wikipedia editor. I've not written any articles and have only added small details and a few photos to wiki commons. The reason why I write is to ask your help in writing an article on the surname Pomeroy as I see you share this name with me. I recently researched the lineage and for the last 3 months keep stumbling upon more Pomeroys every day. Until the research I'd never heard the name except my immediate family. I have submitted a page , but its in its approval stage. Any help or further research in building the page would be a great help.
I missed your message on this article's Talk page until now.
Yes, there are probably better ways to spend my declining years than tagging cites on a list line by line. However, the assessors insist on it, and the deletionists delight on pouncing upon articles they consider undercited. What's a guy to do?

I don't know about your "Fly Me to the Moon" mass deletion. I've seen it done before by other editors on many great songs, but we still seem so determinedly unable to establish what is notable. You did delete some great versions though. Take a look at the history of "Summertime" is you fancy a laugh/cry. Gareth E Kegg (talk) 19:37, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited No Turn Unstoned, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Dame (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Hey, Ashely, I see you recently deleted a lot of text in the Trenitalia article about an advertising goof by Trenitalia some time ago, replacing the entire explanation with the terse phrase "non-white". Yeah, I wrote that explanation. Why? Because at the time, people were writing about the family saying they were "black" when they were clearly from the Indian subcontinent. Obviously, "black" doesn't mean the same thing in the UK as it does in North America, so I clarified that the original Italian (which I speak) didn't say "black".
Your reduction of the whole detailed discussion to "non-white" might be OK...if the phrase "non-white" meant the same everywhere...but it doesn't. Recently here in Richardson, Texas, there was a stink about a guy running for mayor who was half-Iranian and half-Palestinian, for an otherwise "all-white" city council. The implication (by a respected local magazine) was that the candidate for mayor was "non-white". The problem with this whole thing is that Arabs consider themselves "white" (ask the US Census Bureau) and Iranians are the original "white" since "Iranian" is the same word as "Aryan". Really. See RumorCheck.org
In any case, there is considerable confusion in the US over whether Asian Indians (as the family in the photo appeared to be) are considered "white". They were considered "white" by the US Census Bureau up until 1980, after which they were lumped in with "Asian"...but, of course, in the US, Asian in popular speech refers only to residents of the Far East (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, etc.). I believe that it is presumptive to assume that everyone reading this article would know what "white" and "non-white" meant.
Hi, I stumbled across your user page and your photos in particular File:St Lawrence 0800.jpg. I was curious what/which "St Lawrence's" is referred to in the photo but couldn't figure it out. If there's an appropriate WP article describing it, may I suggest wikilinking to it in the summary for your photo? 22.214.171.124 (talk) 12:28, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
- Aha, a bit more searching (and checking another of your photos) and I've figured it out. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 12:36, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

I'm not a vandal, just an inept editor. I didn't know how to fix the sub-heading, thanks for doing so. The misspellings come from posting in a hurry. The banner at the top of the page asked for citations to be added; I put in several recent published works - including my own book - and one primary source document. I think I have improved the article. Thanks again for your comments. -Chris O'Connor — Preceding unsigned comment added by CPO1955 (talk • contribs) 14:09, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
