DJIA Point Changes[edit]

Regarding your blanket reversion of my additions to dates of record point changes in the DJIA with the comment "Regarding your comment that "Not every zig-zag of a single national stock exchange is worth noting," and, "Actually, it is (London, Tokyo, Paris?) and none of these are historic, merely transitory," I find your arguments to be disingenuous for the following reasons:

  1. This is the English Language Wikipedia. A serious argument can be made that the Dow Jones Industrial Average is the single most monitored stock index in the world, not just in the English language, and it is therefore specious to maintain that it is just "a single national stock exchange".
  2. The entries I've made were for days in which the DJIA had achieved a record point change. These records are set only very infrequently. It's not that the market hit a record high; that kind of information becomes non-notable usually after a short period of time. These weren't just ordinary "zig-zags". These were days of large consequence to the world of corporate finance.
  3. Prior to my additions, there were existing precedences for inclusion of the same kind of material, including September 29, October 19, October 27, and October 13. Arbitrary inclusion of some of these and not others seems non-encyclopedic.
  4. Just because these dates are not memorable for you now does not mean that they were not notable at the time.
  5. Your actions are of someone who thinks they WP:OWN these articles. If you disagree with the change, it is more proper to talk about them prior to their removal unless the content addition blatantly doesn't belong.

Benito Juarez's birthday[edit]

Today (16 March 2015) is a statutory holiday in Mexico, celebrating the birthday of Benito Juarez; it is observed in Mexico on the third Monday of March. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.249.77.3 (talkcontribs)

If the observation is not a fixed day, it should be listed in the month page. I added it to March page. Staszek Lem (talk) 23:47, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
