|I may publish openly any e-mails you send me.|
E-mail is enabled on my account, but before using it to contact me please be aware that:
- I think that, on principle, all wiki communication should be open for all to see
- Therefore if you send me an e-mail, you should assume that I will publish it on an appropriate talk page, in order to reply to it there
- If you think there is a good reason to contact me, in confidence, by e-mail, you should first ask for my agreement not to publish it.
- I will only agree to this for a very good reason, for example copyrighted material which cannot be freely published.
In any case, I am likely to respond more quickly to a request on my talk page than one by e-mail.
Don't worry if you want to send me an e-mail that has nothing whatsoever to do with Wikipedia; if that is the case, then there is no reason why I should publish it here.

I appreciate your comments on Oliver Kamm's talk page. Although I have other pressing tasks to attend at the moment, I'll eventually return to the discussion. Also, don't let TJive intimidate you. He's nothing but a bully. Sir Paul 06:24, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
- It's ironic, though. I have long regarded Kamm as a pretentious fool who isn't worth a minute of anybody's time trying to read him -- which is why I've been reluctant to get drawn in. Yet I'm still wasting time on him...--NSH001 15:07, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
Books & Bytes New Years Double Issue
An excellent summary here:
So let me get this right. We support the Iraq government in the fight against ISIS. We don’t like ISIS, but ISIS is supported by Saudi Arabia who we do like. We don’t like Assad in Syria. We support the fight against him, but ISIS is also fighting against him. We don’t like Iran, but Iran supports the Iraqi government in its fight against ISIS. So some of our friends support our enemies, some enemies are now our friends, and some of our enemies are fighting against our other enemies, who we want to lose, but we don’t want our enemies who are fighting our enemies to win. If the people we want to defeat are defeated, they could be replaced by people we like even less, and all this was started by us invading a country to drive out terrorists who were not actually there until we went in to drive them out. I think I’ve got it.—Richard Alan Jones, 13 Jun 2014
Wrong, I am neoconservative, and I hate all Arab countries, especially Saudi Arabia and Iraq. See antisemitism in the Arab world. That is why I hate Arabs.
- The above unsigned message is not by me, but from an IP sockpuppet-vandal, and therefore merits no reply, except to note that hating people is guaranteed to harm the hater, and benefits nobody. --NSH001 (talk) 18:01, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
- "Hating people is guaranteed to harm the hater, and benefits nobody." That is incorrect. Anti-Semites are evil and deserve to be hated. What is wrong with hating evil people? By the way, calling me a "sockpuppet-vandal" just because I stand up for Jewish rights is a personal attack and violates WP:NPA.

The header title for the "Day 12 Saturday 19 July" chart is duplicated. I tried to fix by tweaking but couldn't. I have been given to understand you're the man for this job. Thanks. Quis separabit? 14:12, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
- Done the error wasn't in the table, but in an earlier (empty) table for "Day 5". --NSH001 (talk) 17:35, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Rubbish edit summaries
I need some help at Template:Aquino Cabinet: an IP address is putting rubbish edit summaries and I see that you might be more experienced in Filipino politics than I am. Can you give me a clearer picture of what's going on? Thanks. --Marianian(talk) 13:57, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
- I suspect the IP editor concerned is a Filipino who speaks little or no English, and so is incapable of providing any meaningful text in English, nor of understanding any warning messages. I have absolutely no experience of Filipino politics, and only came across this because of the massive mess the IP editor was making of the template. I did notice he or she was back (after the expiry of semi-protection), complete with nonsense edit summaries. His or her changes seemed reasonable at first sight, but I didn't have time to actually look up the members of the cabinet on the relevant govt web site. You should post a request for help at the relevant WikiProject (link on template talk page). I posted a request there before, but no help was forthcoming. Still worth another try, though. You may need to request admin help if the edits turn out to be wrong - either blocking the IP or semi-protecting the template. Sorry I can't be of more help at the moment, but I'm busy with something else. Good luck! --NSH001 (talk) 14:23, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Drone attacks in Pakistan move
A whinging wheeze from the geezer agin
Could you apply the balm of your technical genius, and the cerebral haemarroids my ignorance is causing me, to the doubling up of the citations at List of violent incidents in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, 2014. I must own myself responsible for the mess, but can't fix it, and cast about like Ahab for some transcendal idea to harpoon in regret.Nishidani (talk) 22:04, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
