Reminders to Self
L. Frank Baum
In Aunt Jane's Nieces at Work, Kenneth Forbes runs for local office with the banning of billboards his major campaign issue. He uses a slippery slope argument about advertising on clothing, and demonstrates some examples with the neighborhood kids wearing ads on their clothes, which horrifies a large portion of those in attendance. Now, it's tough to not find people with advertisements on their clothing when you go out in public. this is what I meant by ubiquity. I don't know what you meant by influence, but it seems to me irrelevant in this context. --Scottandrewhutchins (talk) 15:43, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
I accept that the book is legitimate scholarship, but your edit presented a point of view as if it were fact. I think if that pov is going to be included, it has to be in the context of other viewpoints that have been expressed by scholars. Most don't think that the "only begetter" passage would have been considered "outrageous", and there are disputes about who it is intended to refer to. Also Sonnet 125 does not "describe the coronation of James VI", that's just an interpretation of the reference to bearing a "canopy", one of several . Nor is it new, or, I think, widely accepted (see Sonnet 125). We have to put such material in context, otherwise it's misleading. That's why I said it was 'undue weight'. It could be reintroduced if we can add other points of view to balance it. I'd suggest that you could add it to the article on the sonnet. We may be able to create a whole new page on the dedication, but I'm far too busy to do that now. The whole sonnets page really needs a complete overhaul. (I posted this on my talk page too. If you want to continue to discuss I will stick to whichever talk page you reply on). Paul B (talk) 12:25, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

- Let it be noted that I did not make those edits, and there were several, this was the only one complained about. And that I changed my password. I am completely in favour of the rights of homosexual people, and for those rights to improve. I have several friends who are in homosexual relationships and even marriages. I dislike how this template appears on my page, but won't archive it away. MrMelonhead (talk) 09:02, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Sonnet 26, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Octet and Volta. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
