Don't be gone too long...[edit]

Regardless of politics or "political correctness" you know how much of an impact you have had on editors and Wikipedia in general. You were the turning point on my understanding of how Wikipedia works and how to better understand editors and not just judge them. There will always be disagreement on how to handle everything from cussing to edit warring.....but I trust your judgment above all others and for that reason and that reason alone....I wish your speedy return!

  • Hey Mark, I'm taking my first semi-day off in 4 weeks now, decompressing. Just so you know, my absence has nothing to do with anything that happened here, that dust up was trivial. Google "jerry obituary greensboro" (w/o quotes) for more on why I've been gone. The last month, I've spent more time in a hospital than home, and now that the funeral is over, the paperwork begins; life insurance, bank accounts, stock accounts, etc., plus another memorial service tomorrow, and taking care of mom afterwards, and of course Mrs. Brown, who was his first born. She and I are doing most of the heavy lifting here. I'm just emotionally spent, which is why I'm not here. Real life does have a way of making this place look like a sandbox with too many brats fighting over the only bucket, so yes, I am reevaluating how I spend my free time, my volunteer time, but I'm not rushing to any judgement. I'm just coping right now and I don't need any additional emotional baggage or distractions. Dennis Brown |  | WER 14:32, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Your absence is noted by many; my condolences to you and your family for the loss of your father-in-law. Take care and all the best, Miniapolis 23:52, 22 August 2014 (UTC)


I fully understand Dennis.--Mark Miller (talk) 01:44, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Dennis, just got back from a vacation and saw your note - my condolences. Take your time and come back when you can, you're definitely one of our best, and we need you. BMK (talk) 01:08, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
