Hi, Fenke; thanks for the help at Talk:Asperger syndrome. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 23:01, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

I'd like to second that. I followed up on your remark by changing the article and leaving further discussion at Talk:Asperger syndrome #Treatment; further comments are welcome. Eubulides 23:16, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Thank you both for your welcome. I hope to be able to contribute, in one way or another. Fenke 14:37, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

comment left on talk page there. Josh.Pritchard.DBA (talk) 03:54, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

I knew you disagreed with me[edit]

but I thought you had the courage to do so openly.

The existence of a large group of neurodiversity advocates directly impacts a discussion of Due Weight, hence is relevant to the article. You had no objection to the initial comment that neurodiversity is a "fringe group", only to my response - oh, and your own. Then you blanked out the whole discussion, even after i reverted.

That's just ... sad, man. Really. 07:20, 29 January 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by CeilingCrash (talkcontribs)

What is really sad is that you could not resist grabbing this opportunity to express your grudge against a specific group or forum. Wikipedia is not the place for you to vent your anger with WP or AP, and it is not the place for me to respond to your rants. What was removed were non-constructive ramblings, if you want to discuss the original issue raised by, that is fine as long as the aim is to improve the article. Fenke (talk) 13:58, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

For the record, I asked an admin to look at this. While he agrees with your claim that the discussion doesn't seem to be improving the article, he finds your actions "not quite appropriate."

(I've no further interest beyond pointing this out to you. Do you patrol other Talk pages and blank out spurious content there? Or is this sense of propriety reserved only for those statements which you happen to disagree with? Deletion is not an appropriate mode of discourse.) CeilingCrash (talk) 07:17, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

So he agrees that the use of the talk page was ... inappropriate. I've had 'forum comments' removed and, though I didn't like, I assumed it was part of Wikipedia-culture, WP:NOTAFORUM and all...
For your so called 'questions', no, I don't patrol talk pages. I don't usually remove off-topic talk, but this particular thread was not going to settle down and was attracting more off-topic commentary. I removed that thread because it was only attracting more nonsense (including mine), not because I didn't agree with what was said.
I've told you this before, perhaps you should start reading rather then just 'pointing things out'. If you're only here to 'point this out' then I don't see any point in trying to talk with you. Fenke (talk) 12:53, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
