Stand Watie[edit]

Hi! Welcome to Wikipedia. I noticed your recent edit on Stand Watie. My sources say that Watie's mother, Susanna Reese was part-English. Do you have a specific source, other than her name, that says she was Welsh? Comments welcome. WBardwin 02:42, 13 October 2005 (UTC)

Little typo on your user page[edit]

From my talk page:

Second paragraph.

"...TitoXD and is always glad to copyedit the articles he reads to correct grammar mistakes and other conventions."

The 'and' doesn't fit.

And thanks for the speedy deletion! --Arker 05:52, 1 November 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for noticing it! It actually was an intentional typo to check if anyone read my user page. Since someone does, I don't need it anymore. :) Titoxd(?!?) 22:39, 1 November 2005 (UTC)

Global Warming[edit]

Hello, Just saw a comment you had left on the Global Warming discussion. You wrote: One thing that should be obvious is that this argument makes at least two unwarranted assumptions, the argument assumes perfect competition and that the tariff-setting agency is able to determine the optimal level and to change the tariff level as quickly as conditions change. These assumptions seem quite dubious, and the argument thus seems to rest on some very shaky and hypothetical foundations. The IPCCs own projections indicate a loss of up to 2% of GDP for Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the US. Of course there is no perfect competition in the world, however that does not mean that markets cannot be approximated to perfect competition. The way perfect competition would work against my argument would be in producers acted together to reduce production. That is unlikely for 2 reasons 1) only 40% of production comes from OPEC 2) falling revenues give OPEC members individual incentive to cheat on quotas. I am not sure where you got the idea that I calculated any sort of optimal tariff or my argument depended upon it. The calculations were made for a 200% tax, nowhere does it say it is the optimal amount. I am going to write a paper in the future discussing an optimal tariff, but currently that is not available. Nor do I understand why you believe the tariff-setting agency has to change the tariff level "quickly". Where in the argument did you find a discussion of changing tariffs? As for IPCCs projections, my guess is that they considered non-revenue-neutral taxes. As my paper shows, a revenue-neutral tax would give a huge economic boost to crude-importing country like the US, while having a negative impact on crude-exporting countries like Canada and Saudi Arabia. If you answer please post to my discussion page. Jayanta Sen 18:08, 8 November 2005 (UTC)


Hi, Thank you for your interest in WS Poll, What do you think about the other options. You should add a comment under every option to say if you support or oppse it. Thank you very much and best regards. Daryou 07:08, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

User Bill of Rights[edit]

Hi, Here is a vote related to Western Sahara. Neutrality of WP is dying, please save it! Daryou 07:51, 20 February 2006 (UTC)


I noticed (many months later, as it turns out) a query about the swedish page here for use in another article. I took a quick look at it and it should be within my competency level. If you still want it, let me know, and I'll translate it for you and let you take it from there. Arker 23:19, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

I'd be delighted! User:Peter Isotalo translated about half of it (up to "Farmakopéerna"). The rest would make a great addition to the page. If you're comfortable integrating it directly into Ben oil, please feel free. If you'd rather just do the translation, I'd be happy to do the editing and integrating. Thanks!

Sol Invictus or Christmas first?[edit]

Hi - I'm sorry to see that you reverted my edit. I do understand that traditionally it has been assumed that the Christians picked on 25th December to replace the Sol Invictus festival. However more recently it has been recognised that there is increasing evidence for the priority of Christmas (as a celebration). Would you be happier if I were to add the edit elsewhere in this article and if so which section? Thanks, Mercury543210 21:25, 23 January 2007 (UTC)


Please explain what qualifications you have on the subject of anarchism. You are interfering with the clean-up of an inaccurate article. Chuck0 01:05, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

I am Correct[edit]

I am correct but the long time editors disagree. No hope. I was going to help and add references and put a lot of time and effort but why bother. Take a look at my user page. A brand new article for the medicine section is the only solution. The name will be the List of criticisms about alternative medicine. <<< One day! Thanks, --QuackGuru 01:35, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
