Thanks for the revert. I realise an edit count is not an indication of experience but why do people with only limited experience always seem to argue the most? I've made nearly 115,000 edits and my edit history shows a lot of time spent at WT:TV, MOS:TV and hundreds of TV articles. When I say something, why do these people immediately assume that I'm talking through my arse and that they know more than me? just venting --AussieLegend () 17:39, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

No problem; thanks for fixing the piece I reverted, then couldn't get back on my iPad. Keeping status quo is harder and harder these days as newer editors grow more and more aggressive. It's not that they assume you're talking through your arse, though they want you to seem that way; it's that you're an obstacle they can only get over by defeating you, rather than by the strength of their arguments and though consensus. And sadly, our admin corps is so weakened these days, there's no oversight that prevents them from doing so. Policy is nearly meaningless these days. --Drmargi (talk) 18:08, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm now distracted by the knowledge that you use an iPad to edit Wikipedia. I can't do it, I use my wife's iPad predominantly for SimCity. --AussieLegend () 18:14, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
I don't often because it's so clunky. Mine is for work, and too often, Bubble Witch. Sigh… --Drmargi (talk) 18:15, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
That's a relief and yes, she has Bubble Witch loaded too. By contrast my Android tablet has fun stuff like a car engine scanner, a monitoring app for the solar panels on our roof and, of course, SimCity. --AussieLegend () 18:37, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── All the toys a boy can use. But Android? Pah! --Drmargi (talk) 13:19, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

I'm morally and ethically opposed to all things crApple. --AussieLegend () 18:53, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
Well, what else can I expect from a man who is upside down, with the blood rushing to his head. Meanwhile, the Top Gear article is carnage in the wake of Clarkson's mess. You can always depend on the rabble to keep us busy. --Drmargi (talk) 19:32, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
Oh, if only you had used the word "rubble" instead of "carnage" the alliteration would have been a hoot :-) Cheers to you both. MarnetteD|Talk 20:43, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
The rubble from the rabble has the brew that is true… --Drmargi (talk) 21:19, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
That's what I'm talkin about. Great stuff DM!! MarnetteD|Talk 21:22, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── TOO FUNNY! I just sent you a text telling you to check the discussion. We may have to help upside-down man out with the cultural reference. --Drmargi (talk) 21:30, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

I used to have a mortar, but I broke the vessel with my pestle, just before I knocked over a chalice in my palace. It's probably a good thing. --AussieLegend () 21:38, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
Oh, good man. You get Danny Kaye. I knew there was something I liked about you! --Drmargi (talk) 21:40, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
This just keeps getting better! I could certainly hear DK's voice as I was reading your post A. Thanks to you both for making my ribs ache from chuckling. MarnetteD|Talk 21:44, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
I miss the quality of actors like Danny Kaye. --AussieLegend () 21:48, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
No kidding. They had so much, and such diverse talent. When he was near the end of his life, we used to see him sitting in the owners' box at the LA Dodgers' games, and it never failed to impress me. --Drmargi (talk) 21:59, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for sharing the memory DM. I loved his appearance on The Muppet Show - especially his rendition of "Inchworm". Another fond memory is when he was a guest conductor with the New York Philharmonic. It aired on PBS - maybe on Great Performances - I wonder if it is out there on the interwebs?
