Hello and welcome to my talk page,

If you want to leave a message, please do it at the bottom as a new section, for better formatting. You can do that by simply pressing the plus sign (+) or "new section" on the top of this page. And don't forget to sign your messages with four tildes, like this: ~~~~

I prefer to keep discussions in one place. If you leave a comment for me here, I will most likely respond to it on this same page—my talk page—as an effort to keep the entire conversation in one place. By the same token, if I leave a comment on your talk page, please respond to it there. Remember, we can use our watchlist to keep track of when responses are made. On similar note, I'd rather you not send me {{talkback}} notifications.

Also note that I can be reached via email if you'd rather talk privately, but I do prefer to keep all communication on-site. Just as a heads up, I'm no longer as active on here as I used to be, but I still pop in occasionally.

Conversations here are archived when I get the chance. The archives are available here: 2011; Jan. - June 2012; July - Dec. 2012; Jan. - June 2013; July - Dec. 2013; Jan. - June 2014; and July - Dec. 2014.

Thank you!

Calidum (formerly Hot Stop)

Boston Marathon bombings[edit]

See this discussion about calling the Boston Marathon bombings terrorism or not. It currently seems like there is WP:EDITWARRING going on and you should be aware of WP:3RR. Please leave the article as it was and take your points to the talk page build consensus and change according to that consensus. XFEM Skier (talk) 20:53, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Please don't post more hollow threats here. Let the adults work this one out. Calidum Talk To Me 00:34, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
There are no hollow threats or even threats in general. I pointed out to both editors some policy and that there was already a discussion about this and consensus built. There was clearly a number of reverts without discussion between two editors. You might want to look at WP:CIVIL as well. XFEM Skier (talk) 07:49, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Nazi Party[edit]

Why did you close the recent requested move? "Nazi" is obviously derogatory, yet it is commonly used. Was the anonymous user causing problems? --George Ho (talk) 22:23, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
