What??
I am administrator at Swedish Wikipedia, and administrator and bureaucrat at Swedish Wiktionary. The term "Oh, be a fine girl, kiss me" is a widely-known phrase for remembering the stellar spectral classes (O, B, A, F, G, K, M). Almost all physicists know it, and it is mentioned in most introductory astrophysics books. Furthermore, it is mentioned in the Stellar classification article, the target of the redirects. You really should be more careful before classifying articles (including redirects) as "nonsense". --Andreas Rejbrand (talk) 14:55, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, the article as it existed when I tagged it mentioned none of this. What I saw was nothing but an invitation to discuss, which, as you probably know, should not be in the article mainspace. Maybe previous versions are a different story, I don't know. --Blanchardb-MeMyEarsMyMouth-timed 14:59, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
Your apology is accepted! Of course, I put the text on the article instead of its talk page. --Andreas Rejbrand (talk) 15:01, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

  • I actually checked the article for that line, but my Firefox search told me that it did not exist. I tried it again a minute ago, and again it did not come up. Why? Because my search was set to be case sensitive, which caused "oh," to return nothing. Sorry for the trouble, but know i actually tried to check it :) Excirial (Talk,Contribs) 15:02, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Dubious "Neutrality"[edit]

Regarding this response:

Stating an opinion is "neutral" is not acceptable according to Wikipedia policy. We're pretty loose at the Reference Desk (and my comment was intended to derail a holy war as much as chastise you) but you cannot seriously hold that your biased personal opinions are "neutral". Please review the Reference Desk guidelines and try to refrain from providing biased personal opinions to future queries. Thank you. – 74  01:17, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

"Blue colour is more appealing than red colour" is (according to one of two possible definitions of the word) an opinion, which in general is neither true nor false and is related to an emotional response. "I think that blue colour is more appealing than red colour" is a fact (either true or false - maybe you even can verify it using some medical imaging technique applied to the brain). "Neutral" was maybe ("maybe" because some great NPOV articles cite the opinions of other people) a bad word - I'm sorry for that - but the latter example certainly qaulifies as a "fact". But really, it is no big deal. I could spend some hours investigating the definitions of "opinion", "neutral", "fact", "POV" and their use (and misuse) in the current discussion, but I am short of time. Your comment regarding IE was not obviously neutral, either. Also, the user seemed to be looking for "opinions" as well as "facts". My point is that I do not find this issue important enough to investigate it further. One simple thing to think about, however, is that you should not post comments that are not necessary. --Andreas Rejbrand (talk) 13:59, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Suit yourself; but willful ignorance of the rules is not a defense. – 74  23:31, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
I am not familiar with the expression "suit yourself". However, I notice some annoyance in your "voice", and it might simply be due to a misunderstanding. When I wrote "One simple thing to think about, however, is that you should not post comments that are not necessary.", I was of course referring to this comment (and, to some extent, the previous comment made by you). But I really do not see why we should make any big deal out of this. My original post (Chrome) was not that awful. Then you came with a not really neccesary comment, and then I wrote an even more irrelevant comment. I am sorry for that! --Andreas Rejbrand (talk) 23:41, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
"Suit yourself" is an idiom meaning "do as you please". As I previously stated, my comment was a half-joke intended to prevent the question from turning into an opinion survey (which a previous poster had correctly identified as prohibited by our guidelines), a "humorous reminder" of neutrality. Was my comment necessary? I have no idea. I'm sorry if you took it as a personal attack; I assure you that wasn't what I intended. – 74  02:41, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

ED did not distribute your malware[edit]

Your malware problem did not come from ED. Your description also sounds like you browse the web in an insecure environment. I will be restoring the links to the ED page. SchmuckyTheCat (talk)

My environment is very secure. And I have never seen anything like it before. But do as you want. I am not an expert, but I would not visit that site again on my main computer. --Andreas Rejbrand (talk) 03:01, 9 December 2009 (UTC)
The article is about ED, and it would constitute original research to say that a malware problem originated from the site.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 07:17, 9 December 2009 (UTC)
Well, if it turned out to be a dangerous site, in the sense that visiting it is likely to harm the computer, then I do not think it is appropriate for Wikipedia to link to it. We should not treat our reads like that. But, perhaps the site is completely harmless. I do not know; that was why I asked on WP:RD/C. --Andreas Rejbrand (talk) 13:21, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Scan cancelled; no items to scan[edit]

Thanks for trying to help. I wanted you to know I solved that problem and one other problem that came up as I was attempting to describe the details of what happened.

Details here.

An Important Keyword[edit]

Thank you for raising the question and thank you for your continued involvement in the ensuing conversation involving quite a number of people. I felt it was a good conversation. You helped to guide us to an area of research, albeit "original," on a topic I don't recall seeing before. I hope "alienation" was a relevant concept to bring to the discussion. I just meant it in the sense that television broadcasters are understandably interested in keeping the greatest number viewers (potential buyers of products) watching their TV program.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
