May 2012[edit]

I'm sick and tired of your good work and cogent, well-articulated comments. Please stop. Actually, everyone needs a Talk page, so here you are, no charge.--Bbb23 (talk) 21:23, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

Puppies and Talk pages are nice - free ones even better. Thank you. -- (talk) 21:43, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for reffing the Mound builder stuff. Don't know how interested you are in this kind of stuff, but here is a new article I recently added Mississippian copper plates. Heiro 17:01, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
You're welcome. The stuff about mound builders was new to me but quite interesting. I'll have a read of your new article, too. I see you went in at 44kb--well done for putting in all that effort! -- (talk) 17:24, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! Also noticed your note at moundbuilders, see Nuwaubian Nation as a starting point if you want to get a handle on the black civilizations stuff. Make sure you are buckled in though, the ride will get bumpy, lol, bunch of nutters. Heiro 17:26, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

ANI AFD[edit]

Good point, I've slightly amended my wording. Regards, GiantSnowman 15:28, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Thank you, appreciated. -- (talk) 15:31, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
RE: your revert of my close, this ANI is not about your issue with Blofeld, and is only tangentially related to Jaguar. You're taking a personal fight into a report about a different user. I won't re-close, but I suggest you disengage and let others handle this, or create a separate report. — The Hand That Feeds You:Bite 21:00, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
Actually I don't have any issue with him much less a personal fight. It is directly related to Jaguar as he was told various things by Blofeld. Jaguar created the stubs yes. The comments subsequent to your close are in a much more amicable tone, as will mine be should I make any. -- (talk) 21:04, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
