Bolder Media removal[edit]

An IP user kept on removing Bolder Media from the infobox and claims that we don't talk about overseas studios when we actually do. In addition, he/she refused to discuss his/her objection on this talk page. I also give this two warnings and they got removed. — FilmandTVFan28 (talk) 13:47, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

FilmandTVFan28 Hey, I'm one of the main editors of this article, but I've been away from it in a while. I just recently saw the fuss and I just looked up the infobox guidelines here, and I believe I understand what the IP meant, even if he was extremely disruptive and didn't think of explaining the removal. I extensively expanded the article in December and early January, and Boulder Media's involvement in the production process is mentioned in the Production section, though I hadn't added it in the infobox. I believe the company would fit the infobox guidelines of the Company parameter. Feel free to read the guidelines and reply. Cheers, κατάσταση 01:16, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
Well, considering that some of the article's of shows currently airing on television and of movies have some overseas studios mentioned in their infoboxes, I see no reason why we should not include Boulder Media in the infobox if a source can be provided as the guidelines said. — FilmandTVFan28 (talk) 07:26, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

Smash linguistic barbarism[edit]

   If anything, kid-culture articles should be more careful in policing grammatical sloppiness like (trying to reconstruct the wretched syntax from memory, on this iPad II platform) "genuinely developed sympathy", which implies that it is the process of development that is genuine, as if we are expected to value the sincerity (rather than mechanically imitating stages of becoming sympathetic) entailed in perfecting a convincing imitation of "giving a damn" about fictional characters. I do a pretty good imitation (as it were) of respecting humanistic values even tho i'm a pretty shallow tech nerd; it would be really swell if more genuine Renaissance humanists would belly up to the bar, and distinguish between developing apparent sympathy that passes for genuine sympathy, and the however chaotic and unplanned process of being lucky enuf to wander, like the "innocent fool" Parsifal, into the shared suffering we expect when someone acts with authentic "sympathy" authentic "sympathy". Those, whom we should hope to become, are beings who have "developed..." (or just wandered into) "... authentic sympathy". Okay? Cultivate sensitivity to our best instincts, and the development will probably occur, if the hope of compassion being the direction that evolution trends toward is not a mirage.
   (Perhaps that diatribe is inspired by the wisdom of Cixin Liu that The Three-Body Problem hints at.)
