Brian Stidham murder[edit]

Thank you for helping! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Location, location, location. Acme Plumbing (talk) 05:06, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

I saw the change that you just made. Maybe remove the plastic surgery part? It is referenced but may be an error by Fox News. Makes more sense if he wanted to do more pediatric surgery since he was a pediatric eye surgeon. Maybe have the other guy in the office prepare kids for surgery and he does it. Makes more sense than changing professions into plastic surgery.Acme Plumbing (talk) 05:34, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Recent AfD comments[edit]

I understand if you feel strongly about the murderer-related AfDs. However, I don't really think it's fair play, or at least good form, to be patrolling my edits and specifically voting in all of my nominations. Presumably, AfDs in which the participants are the people who show up by chance are more representative of the community than the ones where you follow a nominator to all of his nominations in order to oppose them. As well, I don't know if you mean it that way, but it does feel sort of hostile to have someone copy and paste the same vote to something like 6 AfDs yours in half an hour, and then even again the next day when you create another one. Can we agree that it would be better to patrol the daily AfD subpages or sorted debates, rather than my personal contributions list? :-) Dominic·t 05:57, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

List of Supercentenarians[edit]

Greetings,

Regarding your argument below:

Weak delete per WP:SALAT: "Selected lists of people should be selected for importance/notability in that category and should have Wikipedia articles (or the reasonable expectation of an article in the future)." If being a supercentenarian in life is not inherently notable, then it should not be in death either. Location (talk) 19:38, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

This list IS selected for notability: only about 1 in 1000 centenarians reaches "super" centenarian status...overall, only about 1 in 5 million persons in industrialized nations (and far fewer in developing nations) reach "super" centenarian status. Also, there are quite a few Wikipedia articles on supercentenarians. The problem is that some get news coverage, and others do not. The list, as rendered, is more demographically sound because it includes all validated 110+ deaths in year X, regardless of media bias.

To summarize, SOME supercentenarians are notable for age, and receive adequate coverage, but this coverage is often uneven and may be biased (for example, the oldest person in Scotland will get more coverage than the 5th-oldest person in Japan, even if the 5th-oldest person in Japan is older). Having a list balances out the imbalances.

Of course, one could just turn to the GRG lists, but they do not have the added feature of WIKILINKS. So the Wiki articles serve a function that exists nowhere else. These lists are encyclopedic. This is not a list of tomato cans.76.17.118.157 (talk) 19:50, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Although you do not post in Wikipedia frequently, you posted here 7 minutes after Longevitydude posted in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of supercentenarians who died in 2009. Are you a sock puppet? If not, you should post your comments there. Location (talk) 20:20, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Infobox runner[edit]

I have noticed that you marked this as depreciated without consulting Wikiproject Running. We have been working hard since 2006 and deserve a bit of respect and consultation. Contrary to the claims of some people who have established a spliter project, we do cover road races, track and field, cross country, mountain running and all aspect of the sport. In the United States, the term "athletics" includes all sports such as football, soccer, basketball, etc. Thanks, Racepacket (talk) 18:34, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

That infobox was deprecated nearly four months ago after discussion in Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Athletics. You may want to bring up your objections in one of the relevant forums rather than here. Location (talk) 01:13, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
The infoxbox was created by WikiProject Running and you certainly did not consult with us about it. I understand that there are differences in terminology between the United States and Great Britain, but since last May, Sillyfolkboy has caused a lot of confusion and duplication by starting a second WikiProject with a very similar scope and then changing everything in site over from Running to Athletics. In the United States, athletics include baseball, football, boxing, basketball, etc. Racepacket (talk) 03:55, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
I'm sorry if you feel that you were not given an opportunity to voice your opinion. The applicable edit histories indicate that Wikipedia:WikiProject Running was essentially inactive when this issue was discussed in Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Athletics. If you feel that a consensus was not reached by proper means, you should involve other editors in the relevant forums. Location (talk) 00:08, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Floyd C. Bayne[edit]

Location, the original vote on Floyd C. Bayne was more keeps than deletes so the article should not have been deleted, but at least it should be redirected to va 7th district race if not undeleted. Libertyactivist (talk) 06:27, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Multiple factors affect how an Afd is closed. The weight of the various arguments normally determines the final outcome rather than a strict tally of !votes. In that particular Afd, the presence of various IP without significant editing history points to the possibility of sockpuppetry. For example, your account is brand new and has an editing history that overlaps with other involved ISPs and registered accounts. You may want to talk to the closing admin for further clarification of his or her decision. As I mentioned in the Afd, redirect was my preference. Location (talk) 14:42, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Charles Lilburn Lewis[edit]

Interesting subject you have there! and some conflicting information to reconcile. I'm going to bring suggestions to you here, rather than add them myself, since I can see there is conflicting information out there and you have researched more thoroughly that I have.

For example, Lewis of Warner Hall (page 350) refers to him several times as "Colonel" Charles Lilburn Lewis, based on his service in the Revolutionary War as County Lieutenant of Albemarle County. I think that would be interesting to add if you consider it reliable, but his father is also referred to as "Colonel" so there might be some kind of mixup. Still, it clearly refers to them both as Colonel: "Col. Charles Lilburn Lewis, of Buck Island and Monteagle, was probably the oldest son of Col. Charles Lewis of Buck Island."

The Lucy article refers to him as "Dr." Charles Lilburn Lewis; is there any evidence that he was a doctor?

Was there some reason you didn't mention his Kentucky estate, Rocky Hill?

The flickr item implies that, like Lucy, he was buried at Rocky Hill. However, this may not be solid enough to include.

History, what fun! --MelanieN (talk) 04:00, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Hi, Melanie. I'm finding the history behind these article quite interesting. I put in just enough so that the article would pass the relevant notability guidelines, but there is certainly much more that can be added to Charles Lilburn Lewis including the Rocky Hill bit. From what I've come across, I agree that it appears as though Sr and Jr were both colonels. I haven't yet searched for any references to verify the doctor claim. Regarding Lucy Jefferson Lewis and Rocky Hill, there does seem to be conflicting information there. From what I gather, the monument and obelisk are one and the same, are not located at a cemetary, and do not mark Lucy's grave - despite what some sources may state. Using Google and GoogleMaps, I found the location of the monument (and bridge to the south) and am unable to verify the existance of a Rocky Hill cemetary in that area. There are many sources that state she was Pres. Jefferson's only sister; however, authoritative sources state otherwise.
Also, as I alluded to in Talk:Meriwether Lewis, there are a lot of people named Lucy or Charles in the Lewis, Jefferson, and Randolph families, and this certainly doesn't help resolve issues of contradictory information. Given their relationships to one antoher, there are a lot of mildly notable people in these families. I understand the objection to geneaology articles and linking non-notable people, but it sure would be helpful if these families had articles like Kennedy family to keep straight who is who. Thanks for the note! Location (talk) 19:03, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
Hello. If you're interested in the history of the Lewis family, have you read Jefferson's Nephews: A Frontier Tragedy by Boynton Merrill, Jr.? If not, I highly recommend. Regards, MarmadukePercy (talk) 05:13, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

      No problem at all! I find the whole battle of women getting into road running in the 1960s/70s really interesting. It shows how much the world has moved on, for the good, in a relatively short space of time. I think stories like those of Wilton and Switzer are also great examples of feminism in action, with both men and women working together to rightly upset the prevailing mindset. Good work!

      Perpetrators and victims[edit]

      Thank you for being bold and making changes to the page. I've swapped the opening paragraph for the version in my proposal, though, since it's been up a while and seems to have consensus. I've modified it so that its also about victims, per the talkpage discussion. I think the opening of your version ("For notable criminal acts...") is problematic because the guideline is about determining notability in the first place. Do you get what I mean? In any event, I think the two versions have pretty much the same effect, so hope you'll be okay with that.

      I think there are other issues still, so the job is not necessarily done and dusted, but we can continue to discuss that. Cheers. --FormerIP (talk) 03:38, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

However, since that foreign article is still a Wikipedia article, it may not be sourced (which it was not).

      Hi there. I'm the Online Communications Director for Newt Gingrich's campaign. I noticed the section on the Meet the Press interview you posted to the N.G. Presidential campaign page. I thought it was balanced. I am hoping you could provide a similar balance to the entitlement reform section of the Newt Gingrich Political Positions page. If you check the Talk:Political_positions_of_Newt_Gingrich page, you will notice that I posted a note requesting an edit of the entitlement reform section to also reflect Gingrich's explanation. Also, the language used currently ("however") seems inappropriate. Unfortunately there has been no response. Would you mind providing some balance to that section?

      Request about Newt Gingrich 2012 article[edit]

      Hi Location, I am Joe DeSantis with Newt Gingrich's presidential campaign. I've just posted a few questions about some material I consider to be unbalanced on the article about about Mr. Gingrich's campaign. I've asked another editor who usually watches the Newt Gingrich article to review them, and thought to ask you, too. Please let me know if you agree with the suggestions, or share any feedback. Thank you, Joedesantis (talk) 21:45, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

      Thanks for taking a look into the matter. I see that an editor you requested look at the matter has agreed with you, but there has been no further comment and no action has been taken on the article itself. Would you be willing to make these updates at your next available opportunity? Thank you, Joedesantis (talk) 15:16, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

      Thanks for the compliment re. Chris Cole (politician). Would you say that the article's moved beyond stubhood and merits a "Start" rating?

      Adolph Rupp Page[edit]

      I wanted to alert you of an ongoing situation I am having with another user on the Adolph Rupp page. The situation has been ongoing for a few weeks now. A few weeks ago I went on the Adolph Rupp page to read the history of the coach. I was curious about his past and I did what I usually do to learn about something quickly, I checked his wikipedia page. When I read the page, I found it loaded with points that were not cited, extremely subjective, not in a neutral point of view and just generally slanted towards making the individual looks as good as possible. Many of the points that were cited were cited from a popular UK basketball blog.

      I began to make some smaller edits and removing content that was not acceptable to an encyclopedia. Every edit that I made was reverted immediately by the same user. I also attempted to add in a section about some serious violations of NCAA rules that happened when Adolph Rupp was the coach at UK. Essentially, UK basketball was the first school to receive any penalty from the NCAA for rules violations. I added what I thought was a fair and objective section on the event that I cited to a few unbiased sources on the web. My edits were again reverted by the user. He claimed that my edits were not factual and completely inaccurate.

      At this point I became frustrated and alerted another editor of this situation. This editor went through and made some changes to the page based on the same issues that I wrote about above, the article was not meeting academic standards at all. He was very helpful and neutral in his edits. However, the user who was reverting all these edits became angry and combative to the changes being made to the page. Eventually, we were able to reach consensus on a few points. However, this user kept changing the page even after we agreed on the edits to be made. He also added all the other sections back in that were not written in a neutral point of view. A few days ago, he made over 45 edits to the page.

      This user has a long history of making biased edits to UK basketball pages. He also has a long history of reverting any other edits to the pages that he personally disagrees with. He literally owns the Adolph Rupp page. I have since given up on trying to make the page historically accurate or meet Wikipedia's standards for content. No matter what changes I make or anyone else makes, he will revert them or rewrite them later to suit his own point of view. Why is a user like this still able to make edits to pages on wikipedia?

      Are those rhetorical questions or is there something you would like me to do? Location (talk) 06:48, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

      No, those questions were not meant to be rhetorical. I am seriously curious as to why someone like that could keep editing wikipedia. If you are interested, you can find the discussions we had on someone else's talk page. It starts on the bottom of this page, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Moe_Epsilon/Archive_31 and picks back up here, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Moe_Epsilon/Archive_32. Leochews (talk) 14:49, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

      OK, then. Q: "Why is a user like this still able to make edits to pages on wikipedia?" A: Editors are not banned without some sort of "due process" that hears both sides of a dispute.

      John F. Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories[edit]

      Hello Location, this is just to let you know that I moved the article you recently created to User:Location/John F. Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories. As it was, it was showing up in Special:NewPages and it would show up in any searches that readers do. These things won't happen if you keep it in your userspace, so it's probably better to keep it there before you put it back in the main article. Just make sure that you attribute the text properly if you copy and paste it back in. Let me know if you have any questions about this. Best regards — Mr. Stradivarius 14:39, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

      David Lifton[edit]

      Hello Location: I hope you will provide an email address at which I can directly communicate with you concerning the writeup of David Lifton, author of BEST EVIDENCE. I am closely associated with Lifton, who is now 72 years old, and rushing to complete his life's work on the Kennedy assassination with his new book, FINAL CHARADE, which focuses on Lee Oswald. He has been very concerned that the constant editing an re-editing of his entry in Wikipedia has been so severe that the result was a writeup that did not even contain a reasonable or accurate summary of the basic thesis of the book. Please communicate with me via my talk page. Thank you. MardinEden5. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MartinEden5 (talkcontribs) 13:42, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

      Dear Mr. Location: Could you please explain to me why it is that your editing keeps removing from the Wikipedia writeup of David Lifton the central thesis of his work? Do you not think it appropriate that readers of the entry describing him, and his work, should contain a proper--if brief--summary of his work? The central thesis of Lifton's work is that the President's body was altered, prior to autopsy. (By "altered" is meant the removal of bullets from the body, and the changing of the character of the wounds, prior to autopsy). The result (per the central thesis): President Kennedy's body was tantamount to a medical forgery at the time of autopsy--i.e., the autopsy conducted at Bethesda Naval Hospital, outside Washington, D.C., some six hours after the Dallas murder. The result: the written autopsy report relied upon by the Warren Commission was not a reflection of the medical facts at the time of President Kennedy's assassination (at 12:30 PM CST in Dallas) but rather the way the President's body appeared at 8 PM that night, at the Bethesda autopsy. As I assume you are probably aware, the treating physicians in Dallas said that President Kennedy was shot from the front; the Bethesda autopsy said he was shot from behind. Communicating this thesis is central to a proper understanding of Lifton's life work, which was a major national best seller (in 1981) and was published three more times by three different publishers (1982, Dell; 1988, Carroll and Graf; and 1993, New American Library). Please explain what has to be done so as to state the thesis of BEST EVIDENCE, without that material being constantly removed, as if it were somehow in violation of Wikipedia's rules. Surely there is a way of communicating to Wikipedia's readers the central thesis of Lifton's life's work, without having you, or anyone else, constantly editing out the key sentences. Please explain and clarify, so that this problem can be addressed. If you were editing Charles Darwin's "Origin of the Species," would you remove the sections explaining "natural selection"?? This is the sort of problem that seems to be faced here. The word "conspiracy" does not adequately explain what David Lifton's book is about; terminology like "wound alteration" or "body alteration" is necessary. The evidence for these concepts is in the book itself. Please clarify your objections. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MartinEden5 (talkcontribs) 21:17, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

      Perhaps you have not checked your talk page since your last message here. I have indicated on your talk page twice already that the proper place to discuss this issue is Talk:David Lifton. Thank you. Location (talk) 21:22, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

      Articles for deletion/Disappearance of Robin Graham[edit]

      Hello. When I commented on this discussion page that the CHP policy for stranded female motorists was changed because of this disappearance you asked if I had a source for this statement. The LA Times reference for this on the Wiki page is behind a Paywall (as are the other Times references.) I went to the Los Angeles Library and purchased a copy of this article. It is now on my website: http://www.TheZodiacMansonConnection.com/victim_graham.html. It states the changes that were implemented and gives the reason for the change as being the Graham disappearance. I also put up an article from the San Mateo, California The Times of the same date that also states that CHP change and the similarities of other murders in the same area in a two year window around the Graham disappearance. (These are also related to on my website.) This article was obtained from NewspaperArchive.com. By the time I had gotten these articles on my site and was going to answer your question on the discussion page it had been archived. So I am telling you about it here. TZMC (talk) 04:58, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

      Thanks for the update. I actually saw your comments on the talk page earlier. Cheers! Location (talk) 05:59, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
      Would it be alright if I changed the referral link for the CHP change to my webpage? (That is if the page doesn't get deleted.) There is already a link to a newspaper article on my site from the Wiki page on Laurence Merrick, who ran an Academy of Dramatic Arts that Sharon Tate, murdered by the Manson Family, attended. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurence_Merrick. (I get many hits on my site every month from this link.) My webpage is http://www.TheZodiacMansonConnection.com/crockett_merrick.html. He made a movie about the Manson Family and a few years later he was shot to death at his school. And there are links to four different pages on my site from Wikipedia, Finland. TZMC (talk) 10:30, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
      While I like to see the actual text myself, placing the article on your website and linking to it - instead of linking to an authorized source for archiving - may violate various copyright policies. For example, my understanding is that the Merrick information should link to http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=ka1VAAAAIBAJ&sjid=KuADAAAAIBAJ&pg=6700%2C6458333. I would ask for clarification from an admin or one of the relevant copyright pages. It's still valid to cite the paper even though not all readers may be able to directly or quickly access it.

      Mosedale (page 1) is currently citation #3 in the article.[3] The article is eight pages long, so I employed shortened footnotes (WP:SFN) for pages two and three to make it easier for people to find the exact page. I would prefer to have a diversity of sources for the subject's background information, however, I thought this would be preferable to the primary source of a CV.

      Edit warring on Mark Lane (author)[edit]

      Your recent editing history at Mark Lane (author) 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.

      Please stop trying to delete organizations and individuals who are "not notable" primarily because they are promoted primarily by media outlets controlled by governments such as Iran which some believe promote offensive conspiracy theories. Wikipedia does not delete notable individuals simply because the promote the views of governments such as National Socialist Germany, communist Russia's TASS, or even the GW Bush adminstration which some believe to be offensive propoganda, indeed they are even more notable if they are promoting propoganda as long as the article does not itself promote such views. The Habilian Association is mentioned in thousands of internet articles by many different organizations, but most of them are aligned with Iran or allied movements, which should make it notable. Any individual or group sanctioned or mentioned by a government or government approved news agency should be notable.

If there hasn't been a compelling reason or community discussion confirming its existence in that article, I don't see any reason to keep it there either. Some guy (talk) 05:03, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

      Thanks for the note! In James H. Fetzer, there has been a lot activity on the part of pro- and anti-Fetzer editors (and Fetzer himself) to insert primary source material to lead the article in one direction or the other. This is particularly problematic in the case of Fetzer in that he has opinions on everything. There is an unofficial consensus there that it is best to discuss his views that have been discussed in reliable secondary sources. If you see something in 9/11 Truth movement that is problematic (e.g. undue sourcing of a section to primary or biased sources), I would bring it up on the talk page or take it to WP:RSN. You could try to remove material and/or sources, but you might face some opposition on this if the material is long-standing. Location (talk) 19:14, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

      SPA tag[edit]

      The spa tag for User:DezDeMonaaa is legitimate in that this is a new user whose first Wikipedia edit was in a a recent Afd. Your edit summary stating "[T]his is not the place to discuss accusations" is both accurate and ironic. Accurate in that it is true, and ironic that you have shown no interest in reigning in the accusations coming from your voting block. The tag is only a notice so that the user's editing history, which may reflect bias or lack of knowledge of Wikipedia policies and guidelines, is considered in closing. Location (talk) 16:01, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

      • First of all, I do not have any voting block! I do not take parts in WP. I do what I deem is the best for its improvement. Secondly, is your SPA tag, for DezDeMonaaa, without signature on purpose? --Universal Life (talk) 16:18, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

      Frankly, as an uninvolved editor, not one of your comments there has been useful to be in working out a resolution to the issue. I don't know if you have any history with Viriditas, but his/her calling him/her a hypocrite and a troll was certainly not warranted. He/she is correct that your remarks have been generally inflammatory and that is not very helpful in DR. Location (talk) 16:26, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

      I apologized to Tokyogirl79[edit]

      I wanted to let you know that I have apologized to Tokyogirl79 for suggesting that she was perhaps not acting in good faith. Unfortunately, she made some undeniable mistakes on her talk page regarding the proposed deletion of the Camille and Kennerly Kitt article which made her look suspicious to both Robcamstone (talk) and myself; however, we all make mistakes. Anyway, it is very clear to me now that she is an honest Wikipedian. I truly wish that only administrators had the authority to propose articles for deletion because a lot of disagreeable experiences would not occur that way. The page in question has been around since December 2011, and since then it has only improved, and it had never been considered for deletion. It's just not right to potentially allow random haters to try to tear down what has taken us many hundreds of hours to build. Regards... Dontreader (talk) 00:45, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

      Thanks for the note. For the record, I do not agree with you that Tokyogirl79 made any improper edits in Camille and Kennerly Kitt or Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Camille and Kennerly Kitt. It is not unusual for inexperienced editors, like Knowtheory, to have trouble formatting an Afd discussion. It is also not unusual for experienced editors, like Tokyogirl79, to fix those attempts. The contribution histories suggest that Knowtheory was attempting to send the article through the normal Afd process (diff, diff, diff) but placed the wrong tag on the article (diff). Tokyogirl79's edits were "standard operating procedure" for rectifying those kinds of mistakes. Still, I can understand the frustration you might have with all of this after investing a lot of time in an article. Location (talk) 04:16, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

      Survey: Use of Chronicling America on Wikipedia[edit]

      My name is Donald Taylor and I'm the Wikipedian-in-Residence with the University of Maryland Libraries, Historic Maryland Newspapers Project. The Historic Maryland Newspapers Project is a part of the National Digital Newspaper Program, a joint program of the Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities. We are digitizing historic state newspapers for inclusion in the Library of Congress's Chronicling America online digital collection of America’s historical newspapers.

      We are conducting a survey of Wikipedia contributors who have cited Chronicling America as a reference in their edits to Wikipedia. It is the objective of our study to identify ways that Chronicling America might be made a better resource for people editing Wikipedia. We recently used Linkypedia to identify contributors who have used Chronicling America. As an editor who has made use of Chronicling America, we hope that you will take our survey.

      If you are interested in taking our survey, you can do so at this website.

      More information about the survey is provided before you begin answering survey questions. Participation in the survey is strictly voluntary. It should take you less than thirty minutes to complete. You must be at least 18 years old to participate. If you have any questions about this survey, you can contact Donald Taylor, Wikipedian-in-Residence for the Historic Maryland Newspapers Project, at dwtii@umd.edu, or Elizabeth Caringola, Historic Maryland Newspapers Project Librarian, at ecaringo@umd.edu.

      If you decide to take this survey, please do so within a week, by Sunday, 3 August 2014.

      Thank you for your contribution to our study.

      Reverted edit on Operation Mockingbird page[edit]

      I had added a 'see also' link to Anderson Cooper's page. Cooper freely admits that he worked as a CIA intern before becoming a journalist. The Wikipedia page on Cooper also claims that he has no training as a journalist. For these reasons a link to his page may be of interest to those who browse the Operation Mockingbird page. In other words, it is something that users may like to 'see also'. If you have some objection to this or a justification for reverting that edit, I would appreciate it if you would offer those reasons here. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 36.252.96.16 (talkcontribs) 05:38, 15 August 2014‎ (UTC)

      We don't place Anderson Cooper in the "See also" section of Operation Mockingbird for the same reason we don't place Anderson Cooper in the "See also" section of Waiter: [4]. -Location (talk) 06:12, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
      Thank you for taking the time to reply. I think we can both agree that nobody cares about his job as a waiter. However, people interested in the topic of Operation Mockingbird may find his collaboration with intelligence services interesting. If he were a renowned publisher of books on waitstaff etiquette, perhaps a similar 'see also' link on the waiter page would be relevant. As it stands, he is one of the top talking heads on television. Hopefully you can appreciate this distinction. Thanks again.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 36.252.96.16 (talkcontribs) 11:10, 15 August 2014‎ (UTC)
      Cooper was not a journalist during his internship and there is no evidence to suggest that he did anything more than paper pushing, so the assertion that he was a journalist who collaborated with intelligent services is a false premise. Regina Benjamin is a physician who also worked as a CIA intern while she was a college student. Should her article be linked in Project MKUltra? Some people are so intrigued by the CIA that they find every tenuous link to it interesting, but that does not mean we make all those links in Wikipedia. Location (talk) 15:25, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
      Again, I appreciate you taking the time to engage with me here. Cooper is a journalist in a very loose sense of the term. Cooper has worked for the CIA. Therefore Cooper is a journalist who has worked with the CIA. Is he collaborating with them currently? I can not make that assertion. However it is an interesting link that users may like to 'see also'.
      In the case of your analogies, you again present a false equivalency. Regina is not advocating for people to drop acid (to my knowledge) and has no relevant connection to MKUltra. Whereas Anderson is a TV personality who parrots Pentagon positions on a network that commonly advances narratives which are of the same. The content of the Operation Mockingbird article speaks of journalists who advance narratives that benefit the state. I hope you can appreciate the distinction between Regina & MKUltra and Anderson & Operation Mockingbird. While one would surely be irrelevant, the other has a relationship. In the interest of the user's browsing pleasure I feel a 'see also' link may be warranted. If the user feels that the connection is spurious, he is free to examine the source material referenced and decide for himself. A 'see also' link does not accuse Anderson, but offers a link that users may like to 'see also'. Thanks again for the courteous discourse. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 36.252.96.16 (talkcontribs) 04:17, 16 August 2014‎
      You assert that there is a relationship between Cooper and the CIA because he "is TV personality who parrots Pentagon positions on a network that commonly advances narratives which are of the same." If this is the foundation of your argument — that Cooper or CNN are collaborating with or being manipulated by the Pentagon — then I don't see it. You would certainly need to demonstrate this connection with reliable sourcing for its inclusion in Wikipedia. I think you are more likely to get satisfaction if more editors were involved outside of my talk page. To obtain additional feedback, it's probably better to post your concerns in Talk:Operation Mockingbird, Talk:Anderson Cooper, or even Wikipedia:Fringe theories/Noticeboard. Remember to sign and date your posts by typing four tildes. (Location (talk) 16:05, 16 August 2014 (UTC)).
