You're a cocksucker!
  +
It's because of you noone wants to edit the wikipedia anymore.
  +
I added constructive text, and you just reverted it!
  +
Would you like me to revert your stuff too?
  +
And believe me,I can really mess up all your work in no time.
  +
1- I'm on a variable and fixed IP together, so I can hop as much as I want.
  +
2- Unlike you I have all the time in the world right now to do so. Morning 'till evening if have to!
  +
Next time stop being such a pain in the pussy of a fat old woman, and start removing comments that really need removing (yes just like you are removing this comment),and leave small and good modifications alone!!

I'm the user that keeps deleting the play house 22 section of the East Brunswick, NJ article. It was a relevant and necessary edit because I live in East Brunswick and the it's been announced that the project for rebuilding playhouse 22 has been stopped and the playhouse will no longer be an attraction to our town. So please do not block me for making important edits. If you have any questions or comments please email me @ paulkondratuk@hotmail.com. Thank you. {{unsigned|68.46.70.48}}

::::correct. you have been the de facto coordinator. i'm basically trying to accomplish two things: 1- make it easier for newcomers to the project to know who to contact and 2- more importantly, as per the [[Wikipedia:WikiProject_Council/Guide/WikiProject#Co-ordinators|wikiproject guide]], give some people responsibility for the administrative tasks involved in maintaining and growing the project. i know i'm new to the project so i hope i'm not speaking "out of turn" it's just that i'm eager to see the project grow. depending on how you feel, i'd like to put the following up on the project's talk page for consideration:
 
 
{| class="wikitable" border="1"
 
|To coordinate the "inner workings" of our WikiProject, I propose the implementation of a [[Wikipedia:WikiProject_Council/Guide/WikiProject#Co-ordinators|coordinator department]] to be responsible for the [[Wikipedia:Maintenance|maintenance]] tasks of the WikiProject. Therefore, the proposal is as follows:
 
 
* Establishment of a coordinator department with 1 '''Lead Coordinator''' and a multiple '''Coordinators''' to each serve terms of 12 months.
 
* Any member of the project can volunteer to be a coordinator. The coordinator page (to be created) will have a section where members can submit their name for consideration, and other members can indicate whether they support or oppose. After a set period of time (2 weeks?), a coordinator will indicate whether the user has been accepted.
 
* At the end of the term, coordinators can resubmit their name for another term.
 
* There is no limit to the number of coordinators.
 
* The Coordinators will be responsible for:
 
** Publication of the project [[Wikipedia:WikiProject_New_Jersey/Newsletter|newsletter]].
 
** Be the [[Wikipedia:WikiProject_Council/Contacts|contacts]] for the WP Council.
 
** Maintenance of the project [[Wikipedia:WikiProject_New_Jersey/templates|templates]].
 
** Update the project [[Wikipedia:WikiProject_New_Jersey/to_do|to-do list]].
 
** Maintenance of the [[Wikipedia:WikiProject_New_Jersey/Members|membership list]].
 
** Initiation of events such as "assessment drives"
 
** Maintain the [[Wikipedia:WikiProject_New_Jersey/NJCOTW|Collaboration of the Week]]
 
** All other "maintenance tasks" that the project requires.

:::::We have accomplished a tremendous amount with WPNJ even if things aren't hopping, but I agree that a re-evaluation of our progress can help fill in even more.

For what it is worth to you, whenever I see that you've made a reversion on a page that I monitor, I have found I need not bother checking the page.

I was just wondering if you know of any more [[NJSIAA]] conferences besides the ones listed in "Category:New Jersey high school athletic conferences"? If you take a look at the NJSIAA Wikipedia page, go to the bottom and check out all the navboxes I've created over the past week. I'd like to account for ALL New Jersey high schools, including the ones independent of NJSIAA jurisdiction (e.g. St. Benedict's) but I don't know of any other conferences. Could you help me out if you ge tthe chance?

== [[Chronic fatigue syndrome]] is doomed ==
 
 
I'm done trying to build consensus with that entry --- there are editors with strong narrow POV who do not know the literature and they intend to keep their empire. Example: I attempted to build consensus on who are experts, using the MD's and researchers from the [[CDC]] as a starting point, as well as textbooks (Books targeted for clincial use), and they delete without discussion this material. For well known and published articles they deem them to be "unreliable" although the [[CDC]] uses the same articles in the same journals...
 
 
I trust someone will escalate this issue to someone that can do something. Is there a place to registered complaints against a crew such as this?

:::With respect Alansohn why is Lassesen justified in calling me and other editors unknowledgeable, with an "empire" and all of other attacks he makes on us here and on talk pages, like saying people that do not agree on him have a pro psychological POV? I do not have any relation on CFS, I am not a patient a doctor and I do not even like psychology! Lassesen tho is a well-known internet activist, he said so on his talk, who opposes proven treatments for CFS and promotes alternative medicine remedies. That is great, I think it is good he is so active and i respect him and his views, but it is not how we write medical articles at WP, it is not a place for activism and experimental research.
 
:::[[Chronic fatigue syndrome]] is a medical article, it should be most based from peer review secondary sources in major journals. I have tried explain this. Self published books and obscure primary sources from journals which do not exist any more are not best sources for medical articles.
 
:::I am thinking, Lassesen has alot of knowledge and alot to say on CFS, but i am hoping, he will try and learn more about Wikipedia guidelines and not be so confrontationing. Some times I am not so polite like I should be, I am working on myself, but I am also just trying, follow WP guidelines.

== Agree with dumping poop section on your user page ==
 
 
It seems like it wouldn't be hard to create a tool reverting any edit using "poop" from an anonymous IP. (And add to that "penis", "gay", "fuck" -- where the word isn't otherwise already used in article.)
 
 
I created the anti-vandalism "Piano non troppo" account to save my serious work from vindictive vandals. I discovered that I enjoyed the anti-vandalism process. In fact, it made me feel more a part of the community. My other accounts, with hundreds of hours of painstaking work, got no barnstars. The rate at which those accounts have edits reverted is ten times as high as Piano non troppo's. Apparently other editors recognize my "worth" in part by what other community service I've done. Or perhaps what other edits they can readily evaluate. So, strangely, the anti-vandalism patrol has had unanticipated positive consequences for me. And, maybe, somehow (I see Wikipedia as a social experiment) society is indicating what about my work it values. Less my expertise, than my social participation.

I also concur wi the sentiment that the delta lodge subject matter is not notable seing as how they are a defunct organization (not in good standing at the university of north texas... this organization is not mandated by any governing body. The statement that they are a "fraternity in good standing at the university of north texas is fraudulent. They posses no charter/mandate; they hold sparse residence at best, and were relocated by the city due to alarming concerns. To reiterate i fing the delta lodge page to be an apologists rendition with not factual evidence to back it up... it contains claims that are unfound and jingoistic at best.

In the afternoon, we will hold a session dedicated to [[:meta:Wikimedia New York City]] activities, [[Wikipedia:Meetup/NYC#Agenda|look at our approval by the Chapters Committee]], develop ideas for chapter projects at museums and libraries throughout our region, and hold salon-style group discussions on Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects (see the [[Wikipedia:Meetup/NYC/November 2008#Report on the Meet-up|November meeting's minutes]] and the [[Wikipedia talk:Meetup/NYC/November 2008#Mini-meetup Wednesday, Dec 3 with WMF Head of Communications Jay Walsh|December mini-meetup's minutes]]).
 
 
We'll make preparations for our exciting museum photography '''''[[Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art‎|Wikipedia Loves Art!]]''''' February bonanza ([http://www.flickr.com/groups/wikipedia_loves_art/ on Flickr], [http://en-gb.facebook.com/group.php?gid=43008300207 on Facebook]) with Shelley from the [[Brooklyn Museum]] and Alex from the [[Metropolitan Museum of Art]].
 
 
We'll also be collecting folks to join our little '''''[[Wikipedia:Wikipedia Takes the Subway|Wikipedia Takes the Subway]]''''' adventure which will be held the day after the meeting.
 
 
In the evening, we'll share dinner and chat at a local restaurant, and generally enjoy ourselves and kick back.

==Cajunradio==
 
Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did in this edit to Cajun accordion. Inappropriate links include links to personal web sites, links to web sites with which you are affiliated, and links that serve as advertising or promotion. Thank you. Chasingsol(talk) 03:15, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
 
== Baton Rouge Cajun Zydeco Schedule cajunradio - STOP DELETING MY LINK !!!! ==
 
 
Why are you objecting to me adding cajun music schedules to cajun music?
 
It is related and appropriate. It is not promotion. If you would look at it, it is a non-profit website strictly preserving cajun culture and cajun music which is directly related to the cajun music.
 
Everyone in Louisiana recognizes that www.cajunradio.org is a cajun community resource and not a personal website. Just because it it maintained by Clarence does not make it a personal website. Please review content of links that you delete prior to deleting them! [[User:Cajunradio|Cajunradio]] ([[User talk:Cajunradio|talk]]) 04:00, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
 
:The website in question is largely promotional and adds little to the articles in question. While it is vaguely relevant on some of the articles, in articles such as [[History of Cajun music]] the links add absolutely nothing. The pattern of your edits, which seem to add links exclusively to articles related to businesses promoted on the website in question, adds further concerns that [[WP:EL]] is being violated.

== Deletion of [[Chief Paul D. Lilly]] article ==
 
 
Dear Sir or Madam,
 
 
I am E. Williams, the firm representing Chief Paul D. Lilly of Texas. We were hired by the Chief to create a Wikipedia Page for him, as he is overwhelmed with requests for information and his background within the Community Policing Field. However, you deleted his page a few hours ago, under the assertion that he was not a "notable" man. The contents of the page are his intellectual property and you are hereby given notice that you must restore the page and its information with 72 hours, or you may be held liable under both USC and International Intellectual Property Laws. Further, because of your actions, a Google search now produces his name and a page that states his profile was removed because you did not feel that he was a notable person. This statement and the posting of such a "flag", constitutes Defamation of Character, and because it is in written form in a public Doman, it also constitutes Slander under both United States and International law (case law and codified statutes).
 
 
I will allow you 72 hours to rectify this issue without a demand for compensation for my client's deleted intellectual property. Otherwise my firm will most certainly take appropriate action both against you, and against Wikipedia itself for allowing your actions. If necessary, we will apply for subpoenas to compel Wikipedia to provide your name and complete personal identifiers for appropriate court enforcement action.
 
 
Most Respectfully,
 
 
E. Williams Firm, LLC {{unsigned|Paullillyusa}}
 
 
:I am most intrigued by the notion that the E. Williams Firm was "hired by the Chief to create a Wikipedia Page" for [[Chief Paul D. Lilly]] of Texas and is now demanding that it be recreated. I'm not sure why a firm that has so little understanding of Wikipedia policy and of the [GNU Free Documentation License]] under which all content is turned over for other readers to copy and edit. It's a shame to have to wait a whole 72 hours to see the legal fireworks that will take place when absolutely nothing occurs in response to these demands.

== the note at the top of your user page ==
 
 
hi i'm not sure how else to leave you a comment. I am a teacher who has assigned the book "the Winter King" to my freshman students. They have a test tomorrow morning on it so to catch who didn't read and instead relied on Wiki to "read" it I played around with some of the details. Another administator emailed me and promised to leave it as is until tomorrow morning when he/she will revert it back to its originial content, which I had also planned on doing once the test was given. I realize alot of activity has been made on that page today (most likely the work of my freshman boys who know alot of their friends will be reading it tonight) but please leave the changes that "make sense" for now. I promise it will be fixed in the morning. Thanks (originally left at 23:31, 8 January 2009) {{unsigned|76.225.189.242}}

== Frank Prewitt ==
 
 
"It appears the author of the "Frank Prewitt" page is no other than J. Frank Prewitt himself. He is an individual with at least a 15-year history of questionable behavior who has admitted on the stand during a federal trial of one of the criminal defendants that he committed illegal acts. He claims that he did not become a government informant under pressure, but instead acted as a good citizen. Little exists to substantiate that claim. In an extraordinary act of self-justification, he authored a poorly written book to exonerate himself and recast himself as the hero of the whole affair. As part of his page, the book jacket, both cover and promotional text, are included.
 
 
I have made attempts to correct his page to reflect reality, but he has it on a watch list and amends each correction to again promote himself." - ACTIVIST (editor)
 
 
ALANSOHN: It appears you are well versed in Wikipedia jargon, rules, rights, privileges, and writing. As a fellow user, thank you for your contributions! Two things for you. First, I am not "Frank Prewitt". I do have a spine, and if I was, I would say I was, and not have to deal with the inequities of activist and his/her or its constant barrage of unsubstantiated claims. Like you, I want a fair and true article. Despite my abilities or inabilities according to activist to write such I have really given up. Obviously activist has some type of vendetta against Frank Prewitt. He/she or it continues to subtly change wording to honestly discredit anything and everything I edit. If he or she is so angry they should just call Prewitt (listed in the Anchorage, Alaska phone book)and tell them there feelings instead of blatantly editing in a liable fashion.I have made the section as unbiased as possible given the left leaning opinions of ADN (Anchorage Daily News). In reality the section has all be references and has edited by experienced editors and contributors like yourself, so I see no need for activist continued editing/whining.In my opinion articles are supposed to be fair and balanced stating the good and bad and giving the ultimate reader a real perspective. The article I originally wrote has all of that...not continued "negative press" that has yet to solidify into anything wikipedia worthy, but is hearsay and speculation, as activist continues to edit. I have not idea what kinda of "reality" ACTIVIST believes the Frank Prewitt section should aspire too? I understand and except your edits in regards to Prewitt's book. Point taken, understood. Please advise on additional questions. Again, thank you. [[User:Andregen8|Andregen8]] ([[User talk:Andregen8|talk]]) 04:14, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

== Need your help ==
 
 
I don't want to engage in an edit war with someone, but I feel like the [http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Ohio_High_School_Athletic_Association&diff=next&oldid=262474755 change] that I've made to [[Ohio High School Athletic Association‎]] is completely justified, whereas [[User_talk:EagleFan#Ohio_High_School_Athletic_Association|EagleFan]] doesn't think so. I don't think that listing ''all'' high school state champions in ''every'' single sport (regardless of the state) is notable. If someone wants to find out then they go to the OHSAA website, not the Wikipedia page on the ''organization'' itself. If anything, the list should be its own separate article (at best). Wasting '''80,699''' kb of space on an article lags the servers, slows down the page load time and for what? To read about non-notable high school achievements. Can you please respond to EagleFan and otherwise show why I am not in the wrong for this please.

== Uncalled for Warning ==
 
 
Alansohn,
 
 
I have been attempting to update Callum Ferguson's nickname to reflect his actual nickname, which is "Cheese". However, I believe you have labelled this as a Level 2 warning. Could you please allow this change to go ahead?
 
 
I had looked for any source to support "Cheese" as a nickname before issuing the warning and found none. A more thorough search after you left your note also could not find a single reliable and verifiable source that calls Ferguson by the nickname "Cheese". An edit with no edit summary by an editor with very other edits raises red flags and I hope you understand why I had questions about the edit when it was made and have even more concerns now. While it is certainly possible that Australian sources are not as easy to find, their absence would need to be addressed before readding this nickname. Alansohn (talk) 15:26, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
 
 
I understand your concern, However I can assure you that Callum Ferguson's nickname is indeed "Cheese". I attended high school with Callum and coined the nickname myself due to the poor quality of his jokes, as well as his love for cheese. Although the internet may be a wonderful place to spend the majority of your spare time (which appears to be plentiful), it does not hold all the answers to life's questions. Again, I request that you leave the nickname "Cheese" on Callum's page next time I change it.

== I erased the "hardest language" section... ==
 
 
I erased the "hardest language" section in the article "Hungarian language" as it was not scientific in its content but subjective. (As a Wikipedia user I am a novice, and I did not intent any vandalism. Sorry for the misunderstanding.)
 
What about the merging the article "hardest language" within the article "language learning aptitude"? It is strongly urged in that article by Wikipedia for the same reason I mentioned above. Is that acceptable? <span style="font-size: smaller;" class="autosigned">—Preceding [[Wikipedia:Signatures|unsigned]] comment added by [[Special:Contributions/85.104.70.109|85.104.70.109]] ([[User talk:85.104.70.109|talk]]) 17:02, 15 January 2009 (UTC)</span><!-- Template:UnsignedIP --> <!--Autosigned by SineBot-->

== Blocked for 24 hours ==
 
 
I've blocked you for 24 hours, per your [[Wikipedia:Requests_for_arbitration/Footnoted_quotes#Alansohn_restricted|editing restrictions]], for incivility. Your comments towards [[User:Good Olfactory]], at [[Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2009_January_22#Category:Holocaust_survivors|this CFD]] and other CFDs involving him recently, have crossed the line. You have attacked the nominator rather than just commenting on the nomination, and accused him viscious insensitivity and ignorance. For his part, he has repeatedly asked you to refrain from making personal attacks. Such ad hominem attacks are not civil, fail to assume good faith, and are not acceptable, regardless of how emotionally charged the subject matter may be. Nor is it acceptable to target individuals because you disagree with them; this is not the first time you have done so in CFD, but I hope it will be your last. Please think about how you can contribute to creating a more positive and constructive atmosphere during your block.

Whether the block is overturned or not, I do plan to pursue sanctions against [[User:Good Olfactory]] for his sickening abuse of process in using his friendship with you to facilitate his efforts to silence criticism of one of the grossest violations of basic decency of the world's greatest tragedy that I have ever seen.

:My only regret about my remarks is that I did not take a stronger stance against your offensive remarks. I would strongly suggest that the action that should be taken here is to have your despicably offensive remarks trivializing the suffering of those who endured Nazi persecution outside of concentration camps. Your remarks are so grossly offensive and betray an utter disregard of the horrors of the Holocaust. Your previous trivializations of child molestation were similarly offensive, but your Holocaust remarks are beyond the pale of basic decency and good taste. Refactor your nomination at CfD and remove your shamelessly offensive statements or I will have them deleted. Again, I stand 100% by my stand against your trivialization.

:I had planned on working on a few articles that I'll create offline while this punitive block passes pointlessly away, one of which is for the forthcoming [[Anti-Nazi Boycott of 1933]] article. Rabbi [[Stephen Samuel Wise]] one of the boycott's organizers, was asked what the point of the boycott was if it did not stop the Nazis from persecuting Jews. Wise responded that "We must speak out", but "if that is unavailing, at least we shall have spoken." Some 75 years later, after six million Jews were killed by these same Nazis, the least I could possibly do would be to speak out against those who could have the gall to trivialize the experiences of those who lived through the terror of the Hitler era but were not officially admitted into concentration camps, because "any Jew who lived in Europe during the Nazi-era could technically call themself a 'Holocaust survivor'". Any decent person should be repulsed by this characterization. At least I have spoken. [[User:Alansohn|Alansohn]] ([[User talk:Alansohn#top|talk]]) 04:54, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
 
 
== Unblock request ==
 
 
{{unblock reviewed|1=The edit that has been used to justify this block, [[Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2009_January_22#Category:Holocaust_survivors|here]], revolves around a CfD in which [[User:Good Olfactory]] insisted that Holocaust survivors should not be categorized "because any Jew who lived in Europe during the Nazi-era could technically call themself a 'Holocaust survivor'". Given that I, relatives, and friends have lost family members due to Hitler and the Nazis, it took me quite a great deal of time to write what I did at an appropriate level of discourse to address [[User:Good Olfactory]]'s unacceptable trivializations of the world's greatest tragedy, the deaths of six million Jews and millions of others. I know, have met, read the works of and heard lectures from Holocaust survivors, almost all of whom are still deeply scarred from their experiences, and none feel that they used a "technicality" to call themselves "Holocaust survivors" if they were hunted down like dogs but managed to escape being put in a Nazi concentration camp and near-certain death. I had hoped that after reading my response to his unacceptable wording, that [[User:Good Olfactory]] might have realized how the gross insensitivity and callousness in his choice of words -- even if explicit anti-semitism was not the source of his wording -- and refactored his nomination and offered an apology. Instead, [[User:Good Olfactory]]'s only response was to pursue a block. I would love to hear a justification for his gross insensitivity in wording and for the actions that have been taken as part of this process.|decline=Without getting into all of this, let's be as simple as possible. You called him ignorant. That's at the very least uncivil and quite possibly a personal attack. Your editing restrictions say that you are to be blocked in any instance of incivility. Your incivility continues in your unblock request, as you continue to accuse him of bad faith and seem to be accusing him of Anti-Semitism, despite the fact that you said you weren't. — [[User:Smashville|'''Smashville''']][[User Talk:Smashville|<sup style="color:#03F">talk</sup>]] 00:13, 23 January 2009 (UTC)}}
 
 
Fighting a block is pointless when no administrator has the decency to address the offensive remarks made by [[User:Good Olfactory]], ones that he still stands by, despite the clearly insensitive and provocative tone of his statements. As [[User:Good Olfactory]] refuses to recast or refactor his remarks or withdraw his CfD, despite the clarifications I have offered. I stand by remarks 100% and my only regret is that I had not taken more forceful action to address his blatant Holocaust trivialization that defames anyone who endured the Nazi era, whether in a concentration camp or not. That admins refuse to address this only adds insult to a rather grievous injury. [[User:Alansohn|Alansohn]] ([[User talk:Alansohn#top|talk]]) 01:42, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

:I appreciated the note, but I was still a bit hot under the collar from dealing with the block you pushed for. I thought I'd wait a day or two to cool off a bit and see what your actions were, which speak louder than words, as always. Waking up this morning to a sockpuppet investigation that couldn't possibly have been successful, filed less than 24 hours after leaving what could pass for an apology, didn't convince me that your words pasted above were sincere. I'm still not sure what it is that you're trying to accomplish, or why you're pushing the admin who found your sockpuppet expedition to be unfounded to find something that isn't there. Since you filed this sockpuppet investigation, I've made a thousand edits, started three or four articles and nominated two or three of them for DYK. I'm more than willing to move on. It's well past time that you did. [[User:Alansohn|Alansohn]] ([[User talk:Alansohn|talk]]) 02:52, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
 
 
::I want you to know I am not pushing the admin to "find" anything, nor did I earlier push for a block against you. If my sole goal or purpose was to have you blocked, it would be quite simple for me to just block you for incivility per the restriction. But because in each case I was otherwise involved, it was appropriate for me to seek a neutral appraisal of the appropriateness of the comments that concern me. It's clear the CU was "inconclusive" (leaning more to negative) and I personally take your word on the matter. The CU result combined with your word led me to have considered the issue closed, which then left me scratching my head about the need for the points you set out there (which I feel are more examples of incivility, but I understand you may disagree). Honestly, I would have approached you personally about the issue rather than filing a CU request if I had not felt you were in a state of perpetual attack mode against everything I post on WP. My view is quite simple: regardless of how many or what type of edits anyone does—if the user can't be civil to other editors in comments and disagreements with them, the user's being disruptive. You don't have to agree with me about any substantive content issues at all—you just need to be polite about it and not assume the worst. [[User:Good Olfactory|Good Ol’factory]] <sup>[[User talk:Good Olfactory|(talk)]]</sup> 03:09, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
 
 
:::Incidentally, Lar just posted a message on his page where he told us to calm down and he mentioned mediation in passing. That's not something I would invite you into, but if you really want to address some sincere concerns you have about me, I would have no problem addressing any issues about myself before a neutral third party. It does little good to "put new wine in old bottles" by bringing up historic concerns every time there is a new disagreement, so if you need to air those concerns to someone, I can agree to be there to present my POV. [[User:Good Olfactory|Good Ol’factory]] <sup>[[User talk:Good Olfactory|(talk)]]</sup> 03:16, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
 
 
::::If you take a look at CfD, you'll find I agree with you as often as I don't. As someone else I've disagreed with at times said recently, "Sure I said I wouldn't respond to your comments, but I didn't mean that to include when you were wrong" (maybe a slight paraphrase) and I will maintain that same privilege with you, with a good deal more restraint. I will try not to assume the worst, as you have requested, but there also needs to be a bit more balance in a process that's stacked against categories up for discussion. My suggestion to create and improve articles is intended to show that once your articles and categories are targets for deletion, you don't feel the same way deleting the work of others. Try creating an article or two. It's a lot of fun. Mediation only seems to fan the flames. [[User:Alansohn|Alansohn]] ([[User talk:Alansohn#top|talk]]) 04:17, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
 
 
:::Yeah, I acknowledge that we do agree on balance probably more often than not—it's just, as you say, they get less notice, don't they? I'm also fine when you or anybody else disagrees with me on the substantive issues; it generally doesn't bother me when a discussion proposal I make "fails", because often I think the discussion brings out some good points that I (and hopefully some others) hadn't thought of before, and often even though the initial proposal isn't carried forward, there's an agreement to rename or something for clarity purposes. So please don't hesitate to disagree just so you won't be disagreeing with me. As long as things don't get personal, I'll have no right of complaint about that.
 
 
:::Funny you should mention it, but I have been creating articles more lately; in fact, one of the of articles I recently started was just deleted via AfD this week. It was a good discussion, and one user there gave me a good idea how to approach the topic with an article of a different name, so it was worthwhile. I've also been doing some categorizing of Oceanic people by previously non-existent first-level administrative country subdivision categories—people from the New Jerseys of the Pacific, as it were.
 
 
:::I'll have to take your word on mediation, since I've never gone that route before. I can imagine it's probably not the best strategy if you're trying to let bygones by bygones.
 
 
:::Anyway, I hope you will accept my apologies for the things I've done to upset you. I'm a bit of a goof-ball, so undoubtedly some things I say in a friendly or good-natured way are interpreted differently by readers. And as I said in the CU thing, I have no problem with saying the vast majority of your editing work I've seen is very good.

== Vandalism controversy ==
 
 
Did you know about the Wiki vandalism discussion that's been advertised in the press? [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Protecting_BLP_articles_feeler_survey] I know from your user page that you have technical ideas related to this. I've added a couple messages suggesting that it would be good to consult anti-vandalism editors (and systems analysts) about how to proceed, rather than putting it to a popular vote right away. I thought you might have your own perspective on the overall discussion. Regards, [[User:Piano non troppo|Piano non troppo]] ([[User talk:Piano non troppo|talk]]) 03:35, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

You recently reverted an edit on my [[User talk:WikiDan61|talk page]] made by {{user|Ifyouarehere}}. Admittedly, this user is practicing vandalism, but his edit to my page was harmless.

:I had seen his repeated vandalism and when I saw the edit it had appeared as vandalism. I tried to undo the revert and warning, but Huggle was unable to do so.

My apologies [[User:Alansohn|Alansohn]] ([[User talk:Alansohn#top|talk]]) 17:29, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
 
 
== Careful when reverting vandalism ==
 
 
Be careful when you revert vandalism, as you recently did on [[Apollo 11]]. Make sure you're not just reverting back to another vandalized level. Your anti-vandalism efforts are appreciated, though. [[User:TJRC|TJRC]] ([[User talk:TJRC|talk]]) 17:39, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
 
:When I read the change it appeared as vandalism, and i vacillated after reading it, especially its placement in the lead. In retrospect, I agree that it may have been improperly placed, but was not true vandalism. Thank you for the note and for warning me of what is almost certainly an error on my part. [[User:Alansohn|Alansohn]] ([[User talk:Alansohn#top|talk]]) 17:43, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
 
::No, that's not what I'm saying. You were right to revert that edit. However, the version you reverted to was another vandalizing edit. Don't use rollback in a situation like this. Rollback simply reverts all consecutive edits made by a particular editor. In this case, there were two consecutive acts of vandalism, made by two ''different'' editors. You rolled back to the first vandal's edit. Only use rollback to get to a good edit. The better tool here is to go into the page's history, and do a diff back to a known ''good'' version; and then use undo (''not rollback'') to revert to that good level. [[User:TJRC|TJRC]] ([[User talk:TJRC|talk]]) 18:42, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

== Reliable sourcing ==
 
 
Then at the very least, the sources written by proponents of parapsychology should be removed from the reference list of that article. If we are looking for reliable third party sources, an article written by a parapsychologist can't be trusted. <small><span class="autosigned">—Preceding [[Wikipedia:Signatures|unsigned]] comment added by [[User:Bloody21|Bloody21]] ([[User talk:Bloody21|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/Bloody21|contribs]]) 17:47, 29 January 2009 (UTC)</span></small><!-- Template:Unsigned --> <!--Autosigned by SineBot-->
 
:In many cases, articles would be better if they weren't edited by proponents (or opponents) of the article's subject. However, as long as there is no direct [[WP:COI|conflict of interest]], Wikipedia policy allows everyone to edit almost every article.

I came across this page just now and I noticed that another user suggested deleting it. I "blanked" the page as the bot told me but this does not seem to delete the article. Then, your auto-response system told me I "vandalized." There was no vandalism, just and attempt to delete a page. I read the criteria for deletion, and this article *more* than qualifies. I have not edited Wikipedia before; how do I delete a page the right way? I also plan on registering as a user soon.

== Reverting template vandalism ==
 
 
Hi, I was trying to revert what appeared to be vandalism to this template [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Mariah_Carey]. My change appeared to work, but I don't see it reflected in the articles that use that template. Also, second question, there were links to products that Carey endorses, and that seemed inappropriate. Thoughts?

== Reinstating vandalism by accident ==
 
 
Hi! I see you're doing a fantastic job of reverting vandalism, and just wanted to bring to your attention [http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Ancient_Egyptian_religion&oldid=268067396] this reversion which appears to have coincided with another user (Captmondo) doing the same thing, with the result that the you undid the good undo and reinstated the vandalism that Captmondo undone. I guess if you'd been moments earlier you'd have got an edit conflict, but as it was Captmondo got in between you spotting the vandalism and undoing it yourself. Can I suggest that you check the history after each undo? Keep up your excellent work, which is really appreciated. Thanks -- [[User:Timberframe|Timberframe]] ([[User talk:Timberframe|talk]]) 19:26, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
 
:Thanks for the note. I do try my best to check edit histories, scrolling back through prior edits to ensure that I am reverting correctly, and did so for this specific revert in question. I'm not sure what happened here, but it may be the equivalent of a Huggle edit conflict overlaying a simultaneous revert. I do try to be as cautious as possible, but I will be even more cautious in avoiding such possible errors.

Thanks for uploading '''[[:File:LorettaWeinberg.jpg]]'''. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the [[copyright]] status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.
 
 
If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too.

It's a shame that AfD ends up triggering some of these efforts that should have happened before, but I am always so glad to be able to add the reliable and verifiable sources that so often exist but no one bothered to look for.

:I had looked at previous edits and saw content being removed and material from other articles being pasted in. While it seems likely in retrospect that these edits were well-intentioned and made in good faith, the lack of any explanation in edit summaries from an editor with only about a dozen previous edits where content appeared to be removed without explanation and where previous edits by this editor to the same article appeared problematic, all came together to appear as vandalism.

== Request For Assistance ==
 
 
There is an on-going effort by a [[User talk:Mashkin]] to suppress very well sourced historical, geological, and cultural information from the [[Arabian Peninsula]] article. It's gotten so bad that its an uphill battle just to include references to material in Encarta, Britannica, the New International Encyclopedia, peer-reviewed Journal articles authored by the Israeli Geological Survey team, links to maps from the US Geological Service/ARAMCO Surveys and so forth - whenever they mention Syria or Palestine.
 
 
The Earth Sciences community refer to the whole Arabian subcontinent as the Arabian Peninsula or Arabia, not just the Gulf region. See for example the [http://pubs.usgs.gov/of/1997/ofr-97-470/OF97-470B/arabmap.html USGS Map Showing Oil and Gas Fields and Geological Provinces of the Arabian Peninsula].

==Speedy deletion of [[:Engraved (band)]]==
 
[[Image:Ambox warning_pn.svg|48px|left]] A tag has been placed on [[:Engraved (band)]] requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under [[WP:CSD#A7|section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion]], because the article appears to be about a band or musician, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the [[WP:CSD#Articles|criteria for speedy deletion]], such articles may be deleted at any time. Please [[Wikipedia:Notability|see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable]], as well as our subject-specific [[Wikipedia:Notability (music)|notability guideline for musical topics]].
 
 
If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding <code>{{tl|hangon}}</code> to '''the top of [[:Engraved (band)|the page that has been nominated for deletion]]''' (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on '''[[ Talk:Engraved (band)|the talk page]]''' explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for ''speedy'' deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact [[:Category:Wikipedia administrators who will provide copies of deleted articles|one of these admins]] to request that they [[Wikipedia:Userfication#Userfication_of_deleted_content|userfy]] the article or have a copy emailed to you. <!-- Template:Db-band-notice --> <!-- Template:Db-csd-notice-custom --> <b><font color="darkorange">[[User:Tnxman307|TN]]</font>‑<font color="midnightblue"><big>[[User talk:Tnxman307|X]]</big></font>-<font color="red">[[Special:Contributions/Tnxman307|Man]]</font></b> 18:44, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Alansohn,
 
I was curious if you had any guidance for me in regards to Frank Prewitt's page. Another editor continues to play with the wording and inserting vernacular and political hear-say, thus making it one sided in addition to writing unique messages on my talk page. I can truly say, "I didn't start it" but this guy "activist" is quite the vandalizing fiend in addition to making absurd accusations as to my intent with authoring the page in the first place. Please advise. Thank you!! [[User:Andregen8|Andregen8]] ([[User talk:Andregen8|talk]]) 06:45, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Sorry about that. I had inadvertently made an error in the title of the page. The actual title of the book is: Hardcore California: A History of Punk and New Wave NOT Hardcore California: The History of Punk and New Wave. When I tried to correct the title it didn't work, so I deleted the article and started another with the correct title.
 
Obviously this isn't the way to do it. So please explain.

I redid the edit to Hello Kitty that you undid, because I feel it is *very* relevant.
 
The author of Miffy feels that Hello Kitty is a copy (i.e. Rip-Off) of Miffy and he does
 
have a point. See the quote on this subject on the [[Miffy]] page.
 
I phrased this politely (I said "Miffy looks very similar and predates Hello Kitty")
 
so as not to offend the makers of Hello Kitty who might have Japanese copyright law on their

The changes you made to the Algonquin article was not a change from an editor that was a vandal. I am wolastoqiyik, and a member of this language branch. The scope of this article in places was narrow, and failed to represent Maliseet as Algonquin people in places, and this was found after reviewing what defined a Metis-- of which was the term Algonquin, so if another definition is to be derived from this one, then this one should reflect an accurate portrayal of what is and what is not Algonquin. Anishnabek people are one of the many people are either the original or Algonquin derivative speakers according to language history. It was for this reason that I changed the article. I also added information that was more representative of the current defintion of the Algonquin people such as added Indigenous peoples and a reference to an article for the same. This was not vandalism, it was a contribution, and what you are doing is wasting time that was spent on something that was constructive by deleting it, at least from my perspective.

Why are you insisting on putting an inapropriate infobox - a broken one at that - on this article? It isn't manga, and it is explicitly NOT covered by [[WP:ANIME]]. I've explained my edits, if you'll look at the edit history. The only one who hasn't is YOU, not that that stopped you from issuing a warning that MY "unexplained edits" could get me blocked.

Well done for editing that page, you are the first member of my new religion. As a reward a temple has been dedicated to your honor in Southampton and you've become a demigod. {{unsigned|Heaven12345}}

The money shall be given to you in the temple. First the worshippers will eat it, then vomit (barf) it out again and it shall be given to you. Notes though are buried in an ostrich egg and the worshippers must eat the egg, then the note can be passed on to you.

Revision as of 18:38, 20 February 2009

Listen dickhead! You're a cocksucker! It's because of you noone wants to edit the wikipedia anymore. I added constructive text, and you just reverted it! Would you like me to revert your stuff too? And believe me,I can really mess up all your work in no time. 1- I'm on a variable and fixed IP together, so I can hop as much as I want. 2- Unlike you I have all the time in the world right now to do so. Morning 'till evening if have to! Next time stop being such a pain in the pussy of a fat old woman, and start removing comments that really need removing (yes just like you are removing this comment),and leave small and good modifications alone!!

Don't tell me about wikipedia! You think you're 'benefiting the comunity', by deeming people's added effort to the community 'worthless'?

Go shit on yo nigga momma! Assjerk!
