Me and my ramblings[edit]

Hi folks. I believe in rational and polite discourse. If something I say offends you, I'm very sorry. Please take the time to explain why on my talk page. It's highly unlikely that I meant offence.

Many of the core principles of Wikipedia match precisely to how I've been trying to present information and conduct debate in my own life. I've found it to be quite enlightening.

I don't have a lot of time, but contribute as I am able.

In response to the kind barnstars I've received of late. I say thank you, and "Even a broken clock is correct twice a day." Face-smile.svg

COI Editors[edit]

In a recent discussion regarding COI editors, I was told that some COI editors try to hide their (theoretical) POV edits amongst lots of other legitimate edits across the encyclopedia. This xkcd sprang to mind and thought I'd share it here. I work with quite a few COI editors over at #wikipedia-en-help connect, so I like to think I have a fairly good handle on that whole scene. My perspective on it is thus: If a possible COI editor is actually making positive and policy-based contributions to the encyclopedia, then there is no reason to harass them or randomly accuse people of COI editing without proper evidence.

Articles I'm ostensibly working on[edit]

Other Wiki Contributions[edit]

As one of my hobbies is photography, I also contribute a bit over at Wikimedia Commons. Feel free to visit my userpage over there if you are so inclined.
