Hey, i've noticed that you've been reverting quite a bit of vandalism. You might want to make an account, so that we don't see your IP.-Tanner (talk) 18:44, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. Some insight as to my m.o. here [1], [2], and [3] at previous IPs. Cheers, (talk) 18:54, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions, such as the one you made on Sammy Sosa. I greatly appreciate your efforts to fight vandalism on Wikipedia. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages you might like to see:

You are welcome to continue editing articles without logging in, but I highly recommend that you create an account. Doing so is free, requires no personal information, and provides several benefits. If you edit without a username, your IP address ( is used to identify you instead.

In any case, I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your comments on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your IP address (or username if you're logged in) and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question and then place {{helpme}} before the question on this page. Again, welcome!

  • I just wanted to say nice work! You're doing a good job and I hope you keep it up. If you want to set up an account, it's free, doesn't require anything but a username and password and you can equip yourself with various tools to make tedious editing tasks easier but you're just as welcome to edit without an account! We need more people like you who are able to look for and evaluate sources. If you need any help getting around, I won't be far away so drop me a line. All the best, HJ Mitchell | fancy a chat? 19:57, 23 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, Omar and HJ. I am a longtime editor, as explained at top, if one wants to take the time to follow the links and travel down the rabbit hole of previous talk pages, a thin source of amusement. Cheers, (talk) 20:01, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

Re: January 2010[edit]

That was about improving the article, I was asking for it to not have such a positive POV. -- (talk) 23:27, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

No; actually it's the most recent in a string of inappropriate edits, which can lead to a block. (talk) 23:31, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
The talk page is for talking about improving the article. Asking for the article to be NPOV is related to its improvement. -- (talk) 23:59, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
As a less terse explanation regarding your particular edit to the talk page of Catcher in the Rye: Neither your opinion nor mine amount for much on Wikipedia, where content must be supported by reliable sources, so your assessment of Holden's character is a personal reaction that has little to do with the quality of the writing. As the recent obituaries attest, there are numerous positive critical assessments of Salinger's work, and of this book. Perhaps you can find some alternative informed criticism. I recollect having read a tough essay on Salinger many years ago by Norman Mailer in Advertisements for Myself. Incidentally, the article does include various receptions to and interpretations of the work, both positive and negative. (talk) 23:31, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Amber Moore and copyvio[edit]

Do you happen to know where the text from the Amber Moore article was copy/pasted from? Rocksey (talk) 20:31, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

It appears to have been copied from various pages, among them [4] and [5], for example. I didn't do a thorough read-through, but given the copy/paste and the overly elaborate plot description--a lot of which was added by a banned sockpuppet account [6]-- your edit from December 7 looks good [7]. Cheers, (talk) 23:22, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! I'll remove the summary right now. I'm debating whether or not to redirect the article to a character list page or not. Rocksey (talk) 06:09, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Hopping around[edit]

99, you are so recognizable in your edits--I find you all over the place. I think, if you really want to preserve your anonymity, you should start by punctuating your edit summaries less carefully. All the best, Drmies (talk) 22:02, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Dutch cheese markets[edit]

Thanks for catching the spammy links. Sourced now from more or less official sources. Thoughts? --Lexein (talk) 03:47, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Good work. I haven't been at this IP in a long time; thanks for the courtesy call. (talk) 03:55, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
