On editing

"I edit regularly in the field of animal rights and am a founding member of the animal rights wikiproject. This despite the fact I strongly disagree with animal rights as a philosophy. Yet I have the trust of all the pro-animal rights members because they have seen that I am as quick to add sourced material I come across that could be seen as pro-rights as I am to add criticism. This is the key to earning trust and respect of other editors. It can be tough, sometimes, adding stuff that you personally believe to be wrong, but thats what really NPOV editing is."[2] - Rockpocket

Well, hell, I came hither to bestow a similar barnstar but have once more been outdone by my fellow libertarian. No matter; you'll surely have appreciated from the AN/I discussion that many of us think your contributions apropos of publicgirluk to have been altogether perspicacious and, for that matter, ahead of their Wikitime.

Surreal Barnstar.png The Surreal Barnstar
To Tyrenius, for all the very great work and thought you have put in, to ensure that an article is not deleted, even though the only thing which just about everybody involved with it agrees on is that it isn't a very good article, but has survived deletion repeatedly and become a POV-magnet. And maybe sown the seeds for making it a useful article. Keep up the good work! John (talk) 05:15, 3 March 2008 (UTC) and BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 06:16, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

A Barnstar!
Sturdy, Dependable Barnbuses

Awarded to Tyrenius for creating a splendid article on Nicholas Treadwell in five hours that he could easily have spent staring at the telly, shooting at clay pigeons, extreme ironing, feeding piranhas, websurfing, chessboxing, taking recreational drugs, watching paint dry, etc. That's one bus for Treadwell, one for Daniel Meadows, one to tow the Caravan Gallery, and one for personal use. All aboard! -- Hoary (talk) 23:36, 14 August 2010 (UTC)
