Hi, regarding your contribution to the State of Palestine article, "legal Status" section [1]. I have removed that background information, because it is already covered in great depth in 2 dedicated sections (2011_United_Nations_membership_application, 2012_United_Nations_observer_state_status) and doesn't actually add or change anything about the 'State of Palestine' Legal status (67.9% or 100% passed is passed). But i'd love some help, I just added some more info [2] if you want to improve on that, please do. --Mor2 (talk) 13:12, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Yes I agree with what you've done. Sorry I hadn't read the entire page, I was just looking at the reference to the UN and the resolution passed last week, but I see now what I added was already there, albeit in a different section.

A belated welcome![edit]

Comcast[edit]

Hey, just thought I'd drop you a note that I mentioned you at Talk:Comcast ~Adjwilley (talk) 05:18, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, yes I took the 75% as being commonly known. I thought I picked it up from a Reuters article. In any event livemint.com and The Wall Street Journal used the following reference which I believe I picked up from the Reuters article: “A tie-up between Comcast and Time Warner Cable would face tough scrutiny from the Federal Communications Commission,” Craig Moffett, an analyst at MoffettNathanson LLC, said in an interview in January. The merged company would account for almost three-quarters of the cable industry, according to the National Cable Television Association.

The key is the second sentence, the NCTA being the trade association for the U.S. cable industry. Unfortunately I haven't been able to detect any reference to the Comcast/Time Warner deal on NCTA's website so I agree it would be a stretch to sustain the 75% claim without a direct quote or reference from the apparent source of the information. factsearch.

Your recent good edit.[edit]

Hi Factsearch: Your good edit on Russia was reverted by someone. The thirty year contract seems to be part of high diplomatic importance between the two countries. FelixRosch (talk) 14:52, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
