Redirection to "a part of the male anatomy" has been reverted![edit]

Unfortunately, when I reverted the edit by IP # that had totally blanked this article, I got an error from the system that a certain link called >><< had been blacklisted. As you can see from the difference of my replacement with the original text, the only diff. is this reference. If someone can fix this (or get that site off the blacklist), please do so. Thanks. --Skol fir (talk) 04:13, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

Edit request, 25 November 2013[edit]

An interview with Zinn is featured in the documentary film "I Am" (2011) by Tom Shadyac — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dimitrismi (talkcontribs) 11:41, 25 November 2013‎ (UTC)

Not done: I think you mean I Am (2010 American documentary film). To be added to the External links section the interview would need to be available to view online, where there are ample interviews already. --Stfg (talk) 14:03, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia apparently blacklisting Beacon Press[edit]

Somebody smarter than me and above my pay grade might try to figure this out. To fill in request for citation, I tried to add a link (without the space) <http://www.bea> to Beacon Press where a PDF of a masters thesis answers the flagged question-- when was the Gravel edition published? When I tried to save with citation, the robot said the cite page was blacklisted. The attempt at placing the cite came in this area: "and published on October 10, 1971, this four-volume, relatively expensive set[1] became the "Senator Gravel Edition", which studies from Cornell University and the Annenberg Center for Communication have labeled as the most complete edition of the Pentagon Papers to be published." The blacklist notice states: The following link has triggered a protection filter: Either that exact link, or a portion of it (typically the root domain name) is currently blocked.

So I dropped the citation. But this seems like a dumb blacklisting robot item.Skywriter (talk) 00:57, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
