recent deaths, people in breaking news stories, etc. because I know we're going to have a lot of traffic and we have a responsibility to get it right and not embarrass ourselves with inadequate, inaccurate, or blatantly wrong articles
a wide variety of presidential candidates and other political types, their families, and associated topics, although I'm beginning to wonder why - oh, yes, it's for the fame and fortune, that's right... see below for my Cayman Islands plans... I lost heart for this on November 9, 2016, but I still keep an eye on them...
I also enjoy researching and creating articles for miscellaneous and obscure people and subjects that I had no particular prior interest in, or knowledge of, like Col Joye, Walt Witcover, Harrison J. Goldin and Philip Nadelman (who used to be blue, but seems to have been deleted - oh no!) - and expanding stubs and editing other random articles - for the pure fun of it. And I do my share of vandal-reverting, because people who destroy other people's work really piss me off. I have over 20004000 6500 pages (yikes!) on my watchlist - so if I miss something that you want me to see, please leave me a note or send me an email.
If only more Wikipedians saw things with the reason and cogency in this talk page edit, this would be a far better project indeed. So what if I'm a little biased because you agreed with me twice...nice job anyway! Frank | talk 00:13, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

For another multi-year veteran of the 2008 candidates biographical articles and always-relevant music articles, for continuing to maintain a roaring presence. Wasted Time R (talk) 14:26, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
Sometimes two cents is worth alot more than it seems. Your comments about paid editing broaden the base for communication and discussion and widen the circle of ideas. Thanks for giving yours and providing some personal insight at various WP locations. ```Buster SevenTalk 14:28, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
The Defender of the Wiki Barnstar
Thank you for making sure the Trayvon Martin case had sufficient oversight and neutrality. I greatly appreciate your input. HectorMoffet (talk) 12:55, 3 April 2012 (UTC)
No one deserves to be jumped on like that for simply speaking their mind, especially off-site. Don't let the drama hounds get you down. You do good work here, and you don't deserve to be discouraged from being as candid as you like about your own personal opinions. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 02:19, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
