Abbott photos[edit]

Please stop uploading and adding photos which violate Wikipedia's copyright policies to this article. I have just deleted File:Tony-Abbott.jpg and have nominated http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Abbott-young.jpg for deletion on Commons. Please take the time to read WP:COPYRIGHT and note that it is taken very seriously - you will be blocked from editing if you continue to add copyright violations.

Replaceable fair use File:Josh Frydenberg MP.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Josh Frydenberg MP.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ELEKHHT 02:45, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

IN RE Tony Abbott[edit]

Hi. Can you explain this edit, which removed sourced text? Otherwise it'll have to be restored. Thanks. Quis separabit? 17:40, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Quick Note[edit]

Hello,

Just thought I'd quickly explain the revert to your John F. Kennedy: "Roman Catholicism" redirects to "Catholicism", and it's best to have the correct link (in this case, Catholicism) when known. That is all. XXSNUGGUMSXX (talk) 03:08, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Hello again,
Regarding your Kennedy edits: They were done in extremely food faith, but the problem was how you created unneeded redirects. "Roman Catholicism" redirects to "Catholicism". You could do [[Catholicism|Roman Catholicism]] or not link it at all, but to just turn [[Catholicism]] to [[Roman Catholicism]] just makes an unnecessary redirect. As I mentioned in edit summaries, you could also mention Roman Catholicism (with or without linking to Catholicism page) in the article outside of the infobox. If you've got further questions, feel free to ask here and I'll respond. XXSNUGGUMSXX (talk) 15:27, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
Also, what sources indicate he was specifically Roman Catholic and not just Catholic? Most sources I've come across refer to him and his family as Irish Catholics. XXSNUGGUMSXX (talk) 02:13, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi, an Irish Catholic is a Roman Catholic with Irish ancestry (see here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_Catholic - I am one of them, lol). So basically there's many connotations with the term 'Catholicism', it is a broad term. Eastern Orthodox & Oriential Orthodox Churches claim to be part of the broad term of Catholicism and claim to be the Catholic Church because of unbroken aposotolic succession. Kennedy, like all Irish Catholics, were not Eastern Orthodox or Oriental Orthodox, but rather, was in full communion with the Bishop of Rome, thus he is correctly speaking, a Roman Catholic. That was his religious views. He attended mass in the Latin right, like his father and mother, and those before them (see Nasaw's biography: The Patriarch). Here's another explanation if this did not make sense: http://www.catholic.com/quickquestions/what-is-the-difference-between-the-roman-catholic-and-the-catholic-religion. Since all Irish Catholics are Roman Catholics, if you still require a source, here are a few from the JFK library: http://www.jfklibrary.org/Asset-Viewer/Archives/JFKCAMP1960-1022-014.aspx, http://www.jfklibrary.org/Asset-Viewer/Archives/JFKCAMP1960-1022-015.aspx, and part 3 of Robert Dallek's book: http://www.amazon.com/An-Unfinished-Life-Kennedy-1917-1963/dp/1478951818

If you require anything else, please let me know.

Tony Abbott[edit]

He is the shortest-serving PM since McMahon, that's more than 40 years ago. It's not vandalism, I added it. And now re-added with a ref from The Australian where the opening paragraph is completely about this. It's very noteable. Why do you take issue with it? Timeshift (talk) 22:19, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

Do you realise you've broken the article's one-revert-per-24hr rule? And in addition you're edit warring without any hint of willingness to discuss the issue on a talk page? It's like you want an admin to block you from wikipedia. Timeshift (talk) 22:26, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

I'm trying it differently. I highly suggest that if you still have issues that you engage on a talk page rather than ignore users and proceed to edit war which can only end badly for you. Oh, check out the lead of Frank Forde... "He was the shortest serving Prime Minister in Australia's history, being in office for only seven days"... is that "negative"? Nope, it's fact.
