Your edit of my Rugby World Cup contribution[edit]

Why are you insisting on having these exaggerated audience figures from the RWC, which come from non-independent sources? These figures are not trustworthy, they come from studies ordered by the IRB. Deloitte was paid by the IRB. You say your reasons for removing the edit is the absence of sources, but I quoted an article from a reputable NZ newspaper which makes a very good case for it. You cut the source reference. You also removed the 97 percent figure despite the fact that it comes from an IRB report.SD3107E (talk) 15:02, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

AT Internet[edit]

Dear Nod, This AT Internet page that you just reverted (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AT_Internet) is old and outdated, the names of the key people have changed. I think it is one of the objectives of Wikipedia to provide visitors with correct content, so I do not understand why you refuse any change. I will rework our presentation sentence so that it sounds less marketing-oriented to you and hope it will be fine. Regards, Marie from the online team.

Please read WP:COI - if you work for or on behalf of the company please resist the temptation to re-write the article. This is an encyclopaedia and not a business directory. I suggest that making specific suggestions on the articles talk page here highlighting areas you believe to be incorrect rather than directly editing yourself. noq (talk) 12:08, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Kate Bush birthplace[edit]

Hi Noq,

I see you reverted my change regarding the birthplace of Kate Bush. I agree that the register of her birth shows Sidcup, but that is the registration district, NOT her place of birth. She was born in Bexleyheath Maternity Hospital, as several biographies confirm; Bexleyheath is a small town in Kent (by postcode) or London (by local government), and it is a few miles from Sidcup, which is a different town also in Kent/London. Howevr, Sidcup is where there births registration district was based at the time of Kate's birth. Neverthless, geographically it is incorrect to say she was born in Sidcup, she was born in Bexleyheath. I live in the area myself ad know this to be the case.

We need a WP:reliable source that says Bexleyheath and that needs to be cited in the article - until that is there, the change cannot stand. noq (talk) 12:31, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Here are just a few, including Wikipedia! I say again, the registration district in which someone's birth is registered is NOT the same as their place of birth - it is just the place where the birth is registered.

Wikipedia is not a WP:reliable source. towntalk, angelfire and gaffa.org are not reliable either. The Telegraph and Argus describes here birthplace as Welling. This conflicts with the Telegraph article. noq (talk) 15:11, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Hinduism[edit]

Hello, some time ago a change I had added to this topic was reverted, suggesting that it seemed irrelevant. I had thought the article was appropriate because in it Bhaktivinoda explains that the various schools that make up 'Hinduism' are actually simply phases of the soul's evolution toward the ultimate perfection of their relationship with God. He points out that these phases are important and essential as the soul advances toward perfection. He not only reveals that these various generic paths are delineated in the Vedic scriptures, but that they are also found throughout the world in various religious schools.

If anywhere, this is perhaps the only treatise that actually gives meaning to the word 'Hinduism', which is of course not any one religion, but simply a derogatory word used by ancient foreigners on the other side of the Sindhu River - i.e. they referred to all the people on the other side of the river as 'Sindhus' which became Hindus due to the lack of an SSSS sound in their languages. Thus the various religions of India became lumped together for no real rational reason. One might logically divide them by scripture: i.e. the Vedic traditions, the Buddhists, the Sikhs, the Jains. The Vedic schools that evolved are essentially just different understandings or stages of understandings of the Vedic scriptures which each school hold as Absolute.

The reference added to Wiki by the Thakura simply showed that these various schools and paths are required, but essentially they are all ONE, like paths or gears on the way to the perfection of existence. This is a very important message for mankind, if they can ever get beyond their own favorite idioms in their own favorite books, get beyond to the essence who stands behind each school, that most famous One we all call God.

Hi Noq,

I see you reverted my change regarding the description of South asian clans with last name "Atwal". The original references are incomplete. Who verified those references as genuine & complete ?? Here are other references that I will add & update the page with more information. Bhim Singh Dahiya: Jats the Ancient Rulers, p. 245 Jats the Ancient Rulers (A clan study)/Jat Clan in India,p. 244-45 History and study of the Jats, B.S Dhillon, p.124-127 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.228.210.38 (talk) 15:22, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
