Consider unblocking me or commenting my RFC/U[edit]

Dear ArnoldReinhold, excuse me for IP-based block evading at your page, but I've been left no choice to communicate with my fellow editors. I am going to ask you to consider unblocking me. I've been blocked for close to two years on a charge of sockpuppetry. I simply didn't do it. I cleanstarted (WP:CLEANSTART) for privacy reasons. You use your real name here and I suppose you're comfortable with that. At times online, I've come into contact with argumentative sorts, even "creepers," that are fond of Googling their adversaries and finding them on social networks and so forth, posting what they find to make their targets uncomfortable or perhaps embarrassed (say, by a picture from Facebook that was only intended for friends). You made a different call, but I wanted a Wikipedia account in which the snoopy sniffers could not so easily track me off Wikipedia. My former account was vulnerable to that, so that was why I switched to this: Colton Cosmic. Anyhow, Timotheus Canens without warning, diffs, or discussion, permanently blocked me as a sockpuppet. Somewhat insultingly I find, he merely gave me a link to "WP:ILLEGIT." After that what seems to me to be an immense volume of blockamaniacs started following me around, suspicion-mongering and haranguing and so forth. They sabotage any effort I make to be unblocked. Most recently at my RFC/U: [1]. That tells the whole long terrible story of Colton Cosmic, if you've got 15 minutes to spare. My long-time critics plastered a lot of negative comments there. Do not assess those "outside viewpoints" necessarily as people who routinely participate in RFC/Us, rather it is my habitual critics that watchlisted my talkpage over my objections and followed me to the RFC/U to criticize me some more.

Arnold, I don't know if it was actually what prompted Timotheus, but I did slip up on civility and say to Nomoskedasticity that he or she was a provocateur whose Wikipedia activity consisted of tattling on editors for this and that at WP:AN/ANI and racking up an high personal score of victims. While in substance I think there's some truth to that, there may or may not be another more constructive side to Nomo. and I shouldn't have spoken so sharply. Fair enough. But an instance of inordinately sharp criticism doesn't mean I should be blocked forever. Which was exactly what Wormthatturned told me in email, he said my remark showed conclusively that I am WP:NOTHERE "not here to build an encyclopedia." With no apparent consideration to my constructive edits and articles I created he seeks to distill my Wikipedia participation to a single edit where I stepped over WP:CIV line: [2] (the "provocateur" part). What's not evident there is the backstory: I had a couple days earlier read Youreallycan complain of being wikihounded by Nomo. for a time period of no less than two years, partly explained here: [3]. Youreallycan made a "please just leave me alone" plea that had a plaintive quality to it. And then there a day or whatever later, is Nomo. calling for Youreallycan to be blocked at WP:AN/ANI. I viewed myself, right or wrong, as confronting a cyberbully.

Anyhow, why'd I come to you? I picked a name randomly from the list of administrators, well I actually meant to pick one from under "B" but for some reason I clicked you. I then checked that you were recently active. That's about it. I did look at your homepage that you link, though perhaps we might have common interests but I didn't notice any. You're Jewish, I'm not. It seems like a fascinatingly complex religion to me. I get Hebrew National hotdogs, haha! I like kosher foods because to me that means "rules" and I like those that make the food I eat to have rules in preparing it. On a darker note for some reason I wanted several months ago to find out what a "mamzer" is, so I explored that aspect of Judaism briefly. I don't know if I care for the rules governing mamzers as much, they seem kind of harsh. What else? Your interests in old computers we sort of share. I am more interested in computers of the vintage where they resembled what they are today: computer, keyboard, and monitor. Atari 800 and so forth.

I'm running too long again. Sorry for putting all this verbiage on your talkpage. If you'll unblock me, great, but you'll get flak from those editors and administrators that view me as a menace. Honestly, they make me feel like Hannibal Lecter sometimes, and I'm like "why?" If defending me is too much of an undertaking, no offense taken of course, but do consider leaving a viewpoint at the RFC/U. This is Colton Cosmic.

Hard Left[edit]

Hi, I'd like you to take a look at this article. Here its stated that "The 'hard left' is a pejorative used by conservative elements in the media". However this statement is not properly backed up. There are two sources to support it: one is a rather obscure book which doesn't appear to be a reliable source, the other is http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/politics/6637987/Jeremy-Corbyn-appoints-left-wingers-to-his-first-Shadow-Cabinet.html?CMP=spklr-_-Editorial-_-TWITTER-_-TheSunNewspaper-_-20150914-_-Politics-_-235200826, which states absolutely noting about the term hard left and simply uses it to describe several politicians. Presumably whoever placed it in the article has decided that it somehow proves that the term 'hard left' is a perforative used by the conservative media. This would of course breach WP:NOR.

Thanks

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.

scrypt edit re: yescrypt[edit]

Thanks for your clarification re: the yescrypt paragraph on the scrypt page. I had missed the explanation that it's an easy upgrade path on the first read.

Do you think it would be a good idea to change, say, the section title to something that highlights the relevance to scrypt of the section? Maybe something like "Upgrading to other password hashing schemes"?

DutchCanadian (talk) 22:56, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

I'm open to a different section head, but maybe focus on the Password Hashing Competition. The point being that there was an effort to develop something better and one of the finalist that got special mention was designed to be an easy upgrade from scrypt.--agr (talk) 00:00, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
@DutchCanadian: PS: In the future, please create a discussion on the talk page of the relevant article, so other interested people can also express their opinion. You can use {{Ping}} template to notify users of the discussion. -- intgr [talk] 15:54, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

FBI v. Apple has been nominated for Did You Know[edit]


Hello, ArnoldReinhold,

The above nomination of an article on which you were a primary editor has been reviewed. It has minor problems, which the nominator may have problems fixing. If you should be able to aid that editor if needed, it may help speed this time-sensitive nomination along.

I might add, from my background as a military intelligence analyst, I greatly admire your celerity in compiling this article.

Georgejdorner (talk) 22:13, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, as mentioned on the nomination page, I copied a big chunk of this article from a section on the case in the article 2015 San Bernardino attack, after a discussion on that article's talk page, so the team there deserves much of the credit.--agr (talk) 01:00, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

Formatting references[edit]

When you add a reference to an article, please take the time to fully format the reference using {{cite web}}, {{cite news}}, or a similar citation template. Just adding the bare url causes two problems. For one, it is not always clear to readers what the source actually is until they click the link; even if the site is clear from the url, other important information like the publication date is not shown. Secondly, Link rot is a big problem on Wikipedia; if the source is deleted or moved from the given url, then the citation is effectively dead unless it was archived by archive.org or another web crawler (and even then, already having the template makes moving to an archived version a lot easier). I know that formatting sources makes editing a little slower, but otherwise another editor has to take their time to fill in the citation instead. If you need any help with this, feel free to ask me!
