Notice of Edit warring noticeboard discussion
Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion involving you at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring regarding a possible violation of Wikipedia's policy on edit warring. The thread is Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring#User:184.108.40.206 reported by User:Exercisephys (Result: ). Thank you. Exercisephys (talk) 21:08, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
Was Rocco Scuiletti fired by his trucking company after the Kerry Kennedy incident?
I noticed that you deleted the info that Rocco Scuiletti was fired by his trucking company because the information was unsourced. Click on the following link:
An excerpt from the link follows:
Mr. Scuiletti said the trucking company he was driving for fired him after the accident. He declined to give the name of the company, which is based in Massachusetts.
“I think they just wanted to wash their hands of the whole incident, so they did,” he said. “I can’t say I blame them, but I was still out of a job.”
He has since found a new job as a truck driver with a company in New York, but said he was fighting the traffic violation because he did not want it to affect his commercial trucker’s license.
This information comes from the New York Times, which is the most respected newspaper in the United States. Consider the source!!
Is Jim Leavelle to the left or right of Oswald in the iconic photograph?
I always thought that subjects and people were identified from their actual position and perspective in a photograph. The viewer's perspective is essentially irrelevant when it comes to identifying people in a photo.
Disappearance of Lauren Spierer
The initial sentence of the article states, "Lauren Spierer is a 20-year-old Indiana University student." I changed the wording to "was" from "is" because she is not 20-years-old TODAY. The article relates to the present tense, not the past tense. "Was" is the correct designation, because she is several years older than that today. The use of the word "is" or "was" has absolutely nothing to do with Spierer's status of being dead or alive.
I will make the statement that I am sick and tired of Wikipedia editors deleting true and correct edits simply because they are not sourced. I would never submit false information to any article.
I have come to the conclusion that I am wasting my time and effort in submitting edits to Wikipedia. This is the first time that I have ever been threatened to be blocked from editing. I have submitted a substantial number of true and correct edits that were reverted because the information was not sourced. Wikipedia itself is the source of the problem, no pun intended.
Do Robert and Charlene Spierer live in the Edgemont neighborhood of Scarsdale, New York?
I noticed that my edit relating to the physical location of Charlene and Robert Spierer's neighborhood in the Edgemont section of Scarsdale has been reverted because it was unsourced. I would like to give you a firsthand followup in this matter.
Many years ago, I lived in the Edgemont section of Scarsdale. I've been to Edgemont High School many times, which is where Lauren went to school. The school is located off of Old Army Road. The Spierers currently live in a house in Edgemont, which is near Ardsley Road between the Bronx River Parkway and Central Park Avenue. I know the village of Scarsdale just about as well as anyone.
Wikipedia editors want information to be sourced. What makes you think that Internet sources are reliable and accurate? I have seen more false statements on the Internet than you can shake a stick at. I have also noticed that editors are too quick with their erasers.
Lauren Spierer is one of the most famous alumnae of Edgemont High School, but unfortunately she became famous for the wrong reason. It looks like the mystery of her disappearance will never be solved.
I suggest that you reinsert the information pertaining to Edgemont.
Good catch! I had no idea that that was where it redirected to. I'm going to fix that right now. Just wanted to send you a kudos thread applauding you for reverting my stupidity. Ckruschke (talk) 14:32, 16 April 2014 (UTC)Ckruschke
Pete Seeger quotes
Hi - just for the record, I reverted your removal of the quotes before the last two comments came in, and when in fact there was exactly one person agreeing with you, so your edit summary reverting me saying "four editors have agreed" is not quite right. I actually don't have any strong feelings for keeping the quotes there as long as there is a link to Wikiquotes, but my revert was asking for more than one editor to weigh in - they have now, so I'm ok with the removal. But you might have said there "now" are four editors agreeing. Cheers Tvoz/talk 16:22, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
