Hi. Is this how I talk to you? As you can see, I am new to this and this was my first edit.

I tried to remove a section from Adolph L. Reed's page. The section is inappropriate--please give me a chance to prove this.

Please help me--it can't be right that this paragraph could be allowed to stay. The *paragraph* is vandalism. It is completely inappropriate and the purpose is clearly to defame the person the page is about and if i could have time and space to show you why, i believe that you would be convinced, if you don't already also have an agenda to insult and defame this good man.

He wrote an op-ed. he has written more than half a dozen books and many, many articles and he has a 40-year history of publication. This op-ed should not be so over-emphasized over that whole body of work--as it is in this case, where the *only* paragraph with any real prose discussion is this paragraph. Furthermore, this paragraph *only* summarizes the arguments of a couple of extreme right-wing attacks on it--rather than summarizing what is in the article itself. Those attacks claim that Reed said things that he simple didn't say, and distort the meaning and intention of the op-ed. Surely you can see that this is not an objective or fair representation of a man who--i can tell you--is a very good man. I have said that this is like allowing your enemies to put a defamatory tattoo on your face. Please help me right this terrible wrong.

Thank you!!! Judy99 (talk) 21:13, 31 December 2012 (UTC)Judy99

You don't need the {{help me}} tag when asking a specific editor a question, this is for general questions. Also new talk page sections go at the bottom of the page. -- Patchy1 02:51, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Donna Campbell[edit]

Hi,
I'm afraid there was a rather unfortunate situation at the Donna Campbell article: the original creator is an effectively banned editor who caused a lot of copyright problems for us over the last years; he often copies sentences from sources, or only makes superficial changes. As it was, there were such problems in the article, and although you rewrote large parts of it, I believe there were still fragments of the tainted text (or derivatives thereof) in the article. To protect the project and our re-users I believe I had no choice but delete it.
I noticed that you had your own article prepared at 'Articles for Creation' and took the liberty to move that draft to mainspace, as a new starting point. I'm very sorry your work was caught in the middle of this mess. Hopefully you can redo the modifications made since then.
If you have any questions about this, please ask.
Kind regards, Amalthea 10:05, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Elizabeth Warren[edit]

I see your edits are being changed by FurrySings. I believe this person has some kind of political agenda. I support your efforts and will do whatever I can to help. Odestiny (talk) 17:30, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

My concern with the article is that some of the editors only see the Cherokee issue from the perspective of the last campaign. They think that it is only Warren's political opponents that are questioning her claims of Cherokee and, and to a lesser extent, Delaware ancestry. They refuse to point out in the article that Warren has never participated in Indian Country activities, has never taken on Indian political issues, etc. They are trying to argue that she called herself Cherokee one time and that it is being blown out of proportion for political reasons. As you know it is a big deal in Indian Country when people claim Indian ancestry and they can't prove it, and especially if it looks like they used that claim to receive benefits from the claim in job searches--as it certainly appears in Warren's case. They whole section is written from her perspective and the other side is not being put in the article, or when it is then certain editors remove it. Hopefully, you can assist in bringing balance to the article.--ExclusiveAgent (talk) 18:19, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Fred Phelps[edit]

Hello, I'm MrX. Wikipedia is written by people who have a wide diversity of opinions, but we try hard to make sure articles have a neutral point of view. Your recent edit to Fred Phelps seemed less than neutral to me, so I removed it for now. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. - MrX 15:48, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Revmqo[edit]

I noted with interest your comments on Revmqo's talk page. I'd be a little more careful with accusations of sockpuppetry, if I were you. Have a good day! Arbor8 (talk) 14:40, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Edit-warring[edit]

Your recent editing history at Elizabeth Warren shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. MastCell Talk 04:40, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Ted Cruz 3RR[edit]

I don't know if you want to deal with the neo-birther shifting IP on the Cruz page or not. If you don't I'll take care of it on the 3RR noticeboard. I'm just jammed for time and can't allocate much for the perpetually stupid right now. Let me know? TomPointTwo (talk) 08:49, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

I attempted to deal with it on the 3RR board, but I have been worried that I would get slammed for 3RR myself. I would appreciate it if you could handle it. I also attempted to raise the issue of sockpuppets but it was not taken seriously by the admin. That's ok. I did not do a good job of making the case. But the Cruz article has been edited in exactly the same way--neo-birther--by 70.184.93.12, 70.192.195.88, 70.192.195.219, 70.192.208.61, and 70.192.203.171. Seems pretty clear there is some kind of sock puppet game or IP shifting, as you stated. Thank you for the assistance.--ExclusiveAgent (talk) 18:58, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Your use of multiple Wikipedia accounts[edit]

Hi. An editor has opened an investigation into sockpuppetry by you. Sockpuppetry is the use of more than one Wikipedia account in a manner that contravenes community policy. The investigation is being held at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Corbridge, where the editor who opened the investigation has presented their evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with the guide to responding to investigations, and then feel free to offer your own evidence or to submit comments that you wish to be considered by the Wikipedia administrator who decides the result of the investigation. If you have been using multiple accounts (in a manner contrary to Wikipedia policy), please go to the investigation page and verify that now. Leniency is usually shown to those who promise not to do so again, or who did so unwittingly, but the abuse of multiple accounts is taken very seriously by the Wikipedia community.
