An American in Madras[edit]

Do you realize that An American in Madras is directly copy and pasted from this: [1]. Ergo, it is copyright infringement. - Hoops gza (talk) 02:45, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

I know, that's why I deleted it. ... discospinster talk 02:46, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. I notice that new users who do things like this, such as create articles and then battle to not have it speedily deleted when it clearly breaks one of Wikipedia's policies, are often not blocked. That is, when those are the user's only edits. Why is that? Such activity is about as constructive as vandalism. - Hoops gza (talk) 02:50, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

My Edit on November 20, 2014[edit]

Hello, Discospinster!

I'm sorry about my failure to explain my edit to List of programs broadcast by Jetix. Still, there was a reason as to why I removed that strand of text, and it was because it was a repeat of a statement already made earlier in the article.

"This is a list of television programs broadcast by Jetix around the world, now known as Disney XD.

This list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it.

This is a list of television programs broadcast by Jetix around the world, now known as Disney XD."

This sounded a little repetitive to me. I'd Really like it if my last edit was restored. Thank you! (talk) 07:12, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

OK I have put it back the way it was. Thank you for explaining. ... discospinster talk 19:15, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Daisytown, Pennsylvania[edit]

The information that is being displayed is the census from the Daisytown in Washington County Pennsylvania. The Zip Code if you research it belongs to the one in Washington County. This whole article is messed up. The Zip Code for the one in Cambria County is 15902:

You keep changing stuff, when people try to make corrections, yet you don't even research it as to why it changed.

Georgi Terziev[edit]

Being born in Bulgarian city is not equal to Bulgarian people. Many other articles all over Wikipedia have it and no one is removing it, why not here? Please explain? Noseamuseos (talk) 02:24, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

The article already includes Category:Bulgarian footballers. Thus, he is a Bulgarian person and that category is redundant. ... discospinster talk 02:27, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
Category:Bulgarian people is different from Category:Bulgarian footballers. Bulgarian people is about Bulgarian ethnicity while Category:Bulgarian footballers could have Armenian, Turkish, Ukrainian or any other ethnicity and still to be part of Category:Bulgarian footballers. You did not convince me on your point. Please try again. Noseamuseos (talk) 02:32, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
No, they both relate to people from Bulgaria, of any ethnicity. That is why the category tree is Bulgarian footballers → Bulgarian sportspeople → Bulgarian people by occupation → Bulgarian people. ... discospinster talk 02:42, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

User_talk:, block log was blocked twice, most recently blocked by you. It returned to Poo vandalism 13 November 2014, but don't trust the relative-quiet of the contribution history. I'm seeing a dozen failed edits like this crap in today's abuse filters, and I'm only looking at a few minutes of abuse filter history. It's up to you how you want to handle this, but in my opinion today's failed attempts to vandalize are good cause to reblock and significantly increase the duration, especially when there were successful poo edits after the last block. Prevent the next vandalism attempt, and hopefully get the message across that the blocks will increase.

Christina Krusi[edit]

Yes, the Christina Krusi page is under a major edit in order to make the page simpler and less political which takes away from the reason she is notable. I have permission from Christina Krusi to do this and to satisfy other wiki users that were upset with the page. The page was becoming a platform for debate on issues, which is not mean on Wiki pages for notable persons. The page will be better after I finished. I have also got a message from one user that the simpler page will be cleaner and highlight the important things objectively and well referenced. I am also deleting the old talk page comments because Wiki asked me to do that with a major edit like this. Thanks! Coco353 (talk) 04:05, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

I'm not sure what Wikipedia policy requires you to blank a talk page. ... discospinster talk 04:06, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

Given the topic (accusations of Satanic ritual abuse and sexual abuse), this page will have a hard time not being controversial (I don't know political is the right characterization.) I dispute Coco353's way to characterizes the debate. I also note Coco353's collaboration with subject of page ("I have permission from Christina Krusi) as possible COI. And I not aware that being a "notable person" means they are exempt from controversy. The reason Krusi is notable is publication of book/producing movie of sensational abuse. This is circular reasoning...SolaryVeritas (talk) 21:05, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Regarding your summary deletion of uncited information...[edit]

Why don't you instead add a "citation needed" template, and give the contributor a certain amount of time to comply, before deleting? That would seem to be the more civil way to handle things -- and the very existence of the citation-needed template seems to imply that Wikipedia would prefer that you use it. (If not using it is preferable, the citation-needed template ought to be done away with altogether.) (talk) 06:05, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

I don't know which edit you are talking about, but if it's about a living person, WP:BLP requires that we remove contentious information if it is not cited. ... discospinster talk 11:35, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
OK I am assuming you're talking about this one. Does that quote come from the "Resolution Concerning Common Core and Assessments" source? It's not clear from the edit.

You haven't established that it's his reason for notability. You just linked to the video game web page showing that he's the tallest player. You don't only need to cite it as fact, but also why it belongs in an encyclopedia article. Every game has a tallest player, and it's not mentioned in all of the respective articles. ... discospinster talk 19:57, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

As I was editing, I was also adding that he is the tallest player in the English leagues. Considering your argument, then why is Oguchu Unyewu (a much more famous soccer player) cited as being the second tallest player in US outfield history? This is a more obscure and detailed fact. Why does that matter then? To quote, "At 6 ft 4 in (1.93 m) and 210 lb (95 kg), Onyewu is the second-tallest outfield player in U.S. team history (after Omar Gonzalez).[52]" Odd huh? Why in the Nikola Žigić entry, is he listed "among the tallest professional players in the world." with no source? Why does that matter then? Feel free to explain when and when not height can be relevant, despite the fact that Mooney would be the most relevant as the actual tallest, and not merely among them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:04, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

You just said he was the tallest player listed in the video game, nothing about the real life league. ... discospinster talk 20:07, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

As I was in the process of editing when I was sent threats that I would be blocked for editing. I was not asked what I was doing, I was told by you and your friends that I was a vandal and to stop immediately. You must let one actually edit something before threatening. You have no counter on how their height is relevant but that of Mooney isn't? Not surprised. I will reactivate my edit then. (talk) 20:12, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

Bhumihar Brahmins..[edit]

Its too funny. that wikipedia says Bhumihar brahmins are considered brahmin and babhan just because they claim brahmin status. That means if I claim that I'm President of India, I will be considered as president Anant. Why they are hiding the fact that bhumihar bhumihar brahmin is one of the branch of kanyakubj brahmin. Go to.. Some of the historic accounts by renowned authors mentioning bhumihar Brahmin / babhan community.

Note : Bhumihar Brahmin/ Babhan/ Bhumihars (short name of bhumihar Brahmin) are names to same community. Sometimes they are also called as Bhramarshi. Brahmin is a priestly class in hindu community, but many Brahmins were landlords during British and mughal era.

Hi everybody, whatever books I have mentioned earlier are the books from renowned Historians or social activists. None of these books have mentioned any relation of bhumihar with rajput. Bhumihar (i.e. Babhan, which is an old name for bhumihar brahmin which had been used in early colonial census of british india (ref 9)) is a distinct community different from rajput, but having Brahminic (of brahmin) origin. It is a total bias to write a tale and false fiction of ashwani kumar (i.e. Bhumihar made up of union of rajput and Brahmin). You can find a lot about the plight of dalit ( i.e. so called downtrodden section of society who are not at all downtrodden in present time and availing reservation in all wakes of life, even in judiciary and legislature in India) in his (aswani kumar) book, but hardly about the plight of Bhumihar Brahmin/Babhan. He has not mentioned Senari massacre and other massacre (available on ranvir sena Wikipedia ) in which mcc, Maoist (i.e. naxalite) and dalit led army beheaded bhumihar/babhan cruelly like Islamic state terrorist organisation of present time. This book is a totally biases against upper caste (i.e. Class) and trying to emphasise only on false tales and fabricated story which has come out of sheer jealousy. There are some bad persons in all community which have been over hyped in ashwani kumar book. Entire babhan community has been made culprit in his book. If anyone is writing anything in Wikipedia he should write all the issues, and not merely some defamatory and derogatory tales, which is not at all true. Ashwani kumar has written many fictitious stories about babhan/bhumihar which cannot be simultaneously true. Rajput is a community which come into existence only after fall of Harshavardhan kingdom. (Refer Rajesthan by RK gupta and s r bhakshi. or you can refer book from eminent historian like Satish Chandra for medival india.) Initially they (Rajputs) were centred around north-west India and some part of central India. They came to eastern India only at the time of emergence of Islamic force in India (i.e. around 1200 AD or Muhammad ghori period). Bhumihar brahmin is a new name to babhan community which gained popularity in late 19th century and popularised by babhan landlords as well as sahjanand saraswati. In early british census report(till 1891 census) they were enumerated as Babhans under aristocratic and military community. So I request wikipedians to remove this fairy tale which has been fabricated by some jealousy community out of sheer jealousy. Please put up historic fact about babhan community rather than some fabricated story. Swami shahjanand saraswati was a peasant leader and social reformer ( who advocated mere priesthood for babhans rather than landlord ship and wanted inclusion of Bhumihar Brahman/Babhan in mere donation taking Brahmins list and also attempted to abolish zamindari (landlord ship) from bihar. Babhans were already included in aristocratic class till 1891 british census. There is hardly any book or early historical evidence giving relation of bhumihar/Babhan with rajput. It is a pure myth to associate bhumihar with rajput which are two distinct community. So please put down the myth and include the materials from reliable and credible citation regarding bhumihar/ babhan community. Bhumihar is a Sanskrit word for zamindar or jagirdar which means landlord or landholder. Swami shahjanand saraswati books (Brahamharshi Bamsha Bistar by swami shahjanand saraswati. are cited by most of the Brahmin community for reference like kanyakubj Brahmin, ( Saryupareen Brahmins ( Jujhautiya Brahmin ( In most of the sites the sahjanand thoughts are distorted and presented. It is highly pathetic.

One more point I want to mention is that a new fictitious and imaginary theory which has evolved recently and has not been mentioned by any historians in past and colonial era. Babhan (Bhumihar) has been categorised as shudra along with kayastha in British colonial census report.( this book mentions this claim but it has not mentioned which year census report did so. I am including one of the early British census report and one book abstract which evidently tells the falsehood of the above statement. (Census of India 1891 by British Indian govt url== and (Peasants and Monks in British India by William R. Pinch UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA PRESS url==;brand=ucpress & url==;query=#1) above books clearly denote that babhans were considered as military community similar to rajputs, nairs and marathas , they fought to get included in mere priestly (i.e. donation taking) Brahmin list since they have brahmanic (i.e. of brahmin) origin. Bhumihar name was not used to list this entire community till 1891 census report. This entire community was listed with the name babhan till 1891 census under military and aristocratic category. There after sahjanand demanded abolishion of zamindari and inclusion of babhan as mere priestly donation taking brahmin list (since they have brahmnic origin) . Bhumihar word was also popularised and created by their groups(sahjanand group)only which included kashi naresh. 1901 onward bhumihar (i.e. babhan ) was categorised under mere priestly brahmin category. Please do not let some editor write some spurious and false facts which do not have historical evidences or account to back the fact. We are talking about British India census claim without any substantial fact to verify that claim. some People have started unnecessary inclusions in wikipedia which is not at all historic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bpandey89 (talkcontribs) 21:46, 5 December 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Anant57 (talkcontribs)

(Sminthopsis84 left a message at User talk:Favonian, but Favonian is probably in bed.) Many thanks if you can deal with this. Yngvadottir (talk) 04:42, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Haha wow, that escalated quickly. I don't know if I want to go near that page now! ... discospinster talk 01:22, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

List of longest novels[edit]

Regarding your edit summary, "unclear notability", note that notability (in the WP sense) is not a requirement for this list. It is not a requirement for WP:LIST in general. However, the work in question seems to be self-published, or something, so your deletion was entirely correct. Choor monster (talk) 15:51, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

I'm going by the guidelines at Selection Criteria, which says that notability is a common criterion. Unless the criteria in the article or talk page explicitly says that notability doesn't matter, I assume it does (based on WP:NOTDIR). ... discospinster talk 18:22, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
The article is explicit about its selection criteria. Notability is not required. Choor monster (talk) 18:36, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
I don't see that in the the current version of the article. Where does it say that notability is not required? ... discospinster talk 18:45, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
Huh? It does not mention notability. It explicitly lists what it expects, and includes a short list of exclusions. Notability is not listed as a requirement, and non-notability is not listed as an exclusion. Choor monster (talk) 19:09, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
Like I said above, unless the article says that notability is not a criterion, I will use discretion and remove it based on WP:NOTDIR. ... discospinster talk 01:01, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Like you said. Not like the article said, and not like Selection Criteria either, which mentions notability as a common criterian, not an obligatory or default criterion. Choor monster (talk) 14:57, 19 December 2014 (UTC)


You'll warm up to it, and the added features will make it worthwhile. One complaint surely you have is that the page doesn't auto-refresh when a new edit comes in, however you can see that they have in the History window. It takes away the "aww MusikAnimal beat me to it" aspect but it was never a game to begin with :) So I guess you can't sit there and monitor a single page, but again you'll learn to live without it. Secondly, it seems like the logic of what to show is somehow different, in that you don't immediately see that much vandalism as you did with HG2. I can't really explain it, but if you let it sit for a few minutes, bam, you're hitting vandalism left and right, moreso than with HG2! I think it queues up the higher scored edits for you to see next, or something. Overall, I'm happier with HG3. If anything just the sheer speed, doesn't flicker like the .NET version did. Just thought I'd share my transitional experience :) Best — MusikAnimal talk 16:13, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

142.255 IP[edit]

Would you be so kind to give (talk · contribs · WHOIS), an IP you reverted earlier today, a 12-hour vacation? I'm pretty sure it's a block evader with a history of harassing Imzadi1979 doing exactly that. Thanks. –Fredddie 21:49, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Morton High school[edit]

I recently added an alumni to this school, Christian Crafton broke many records at the hammond soccer academy and is celebrated throughout the city and definitely deserves to be on the notable alumni. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alexis17welchez (talkcontribs) 04:00, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

He is locally notable at best, not enough to be listed in an international encyclopedia. ... discospinster talk 04:02, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Sergio Massa[edit]

I relied on information in Wikipedia pages for years. The intent of following post IS ... make sure, both English and Spanish speaking visitors receive uniform information. The intent of following post IS NOT ..."Disrespecting The Page Guidelines", "Vandalism", etc. This man may well be the next president of a nation in less than one year, October 2015.

English version of Wiki ~ Sergio Massa: Massa was born in western Buenos Aires suburb of San Martín,[1] in 1972, and raised in neighboring San Andrés.[2] Attending the School of St. Augustine through grade and secondary school, he enrolled at the University of Belgrano, a private university in the upscale Buenos Aires borough of the same name. Leaving school before completing his law degree studies. Polling ahead of the October 2013 mid-term elections gave Massa better prospects running for Congress under the FpV party list than on a separate slate.[9] Upon the filing deadline on June 22, however, Massa ultimately opted to form his own Frente Renovador ('Renewal Front') faction with the support of the 'Group of 8' Buenos Aires Province Mayors and others, notably former Argentine Industrial Union president José Ignacio de Mendiguren (recently an ally of Kirchnerism).[10][11] This split with Kirchner proved successful for Massa as the Renewal Front slate beat the FpV slate in the Buenos Ares province in both the primary and general elections.[12][13] in October 2013, Javier Corradino, president of the Commercial Chamber of Tigre, Adrian Zolezzi, secretary of the same entity, and Santiago Maneiro, secretary of the Commercial Chamber of Pacheco, reported that four of its shops were closed by Sergio Massa retaliation for having closed a trade agreement with the National Social Security Administration to operate the Argenta card, administered by ANSeS. This was listed as a clear political persecution traders municipality by Sergio Massa and as a setback to democracy. Corradino Javier was expelled from a campaign of Malena Galmarini Front for Renewal, township secretary and wife of Sergio Massa.[14]

Spanish version of Wiki ~ Sergio Massa: En el año 1990, Massa empezó a cursar estudios de derecho en la Universidad de Belgrano, habiendo interrumpido dicha carrera en 1994. Años más tarde, el 16 de julio de 2013, en plena campaña electoral, rindió exámenes finales de las cuatro asignaturas que tenía pendientes y obtuvo finalmente su título profesional de abogado. TRANSLATION: Basically, he got his law degree and passed his "BAR" version of Argentina in July of 2013 (meanwhile, he was forming a new party: Frente Renovador, preparing to run for Congress, closing four(4)stores, involved in ANSES, persecuting traders municipalities and expeeling Javier Corradino from his wife's campaign). , Couple of comments: A.- I do not believe that the "English Version" is incorrect. B.- Again, this man may very well be the next president of Argentina in 2015. Amidst all the controversy, it'll simply be good for the WORLD to know if he has former college education, and truly passed the "Argentina equivalent of the "BAR Exam".

Thank you. SinSpin (talk) 07:10, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Whatever is said about Massa's education should be supported by reliable sources. You are welcome to edit the English version so that it is equivalent to the the Spanish version. ... discospinster talk 12:50, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Wes Newton[edit]

Wes Newton

Hi there, I was just wondering why you removed my post about Wes Newton's PDC World Championship record, adding 2015 after he lost earlier on. Thanks.

Because 2015 hasn't happened yet. ... discospinster talk 00:58, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

You obviously don't follow darts then - so you wouldn't get it. What's the point in editing something you know nothing about?

Scott Card racist?[edit]

(Note: Per wp:CANVASSING I am "non-biasedly" advertising a topic for discussion by posting a notice on the ten most recent users who commented on the page in question's talkpage and also the ten most recent users who edited the article in question.)

Commentators continue to reference/allege Card's piece involving a fictional, future Obama's coup d'état by way of urban guirillas as racist (eg see here in Slate, 2013; here, HuffPo, 2013; here, Wired, 2014). Should our article mention this aspect of controversy with regard to the piece here: "Orson Scott Card#Politics"?

(Also see a 2013 blogpost by M Aspan citing this from Card in 2000 rgding allegedly non-racist use of nigga'.)

See discussion here: Talk:Orson Scott Card#RfC: Subject of blp racist?

Katie Holmes[edit]

From what I've been able to gather, the Katie Holmes article is currently being used to try to give credit to an instagram account that is pretending to be run by Katie Holmes.
