Got your email. I am not connected to that and have no idea who it may be. Sorry. --brewcrewer (yada, yada) 20:14, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
scratch that. check your email.--brewcrewer (yada, yada) 20:18, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

DYK for When We Die As Martyrs

Thanks from me and the wiki Victuallers (talk) 14:49, 3 January 2011 (UTC)


See -asad (talk) 17:07, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

I have not been keeping close tabs and frankly I have better things to do. But please be aware that edit-warring can be transgressed both in law and in spirit. So reverting every 25 hours instead of every 24 hours will not fare you any better in the long run. By the way, please don't mind that I am asking, but do you have any real life connection to User:Supreme Deliciousness? If you don't want to answer the question, that's fine. --brewcrewer (yada, yada) 19:13, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
I understand, and I didn't intend to enter into an edit war. There was one revert done to a user who registered their name, as far as I am concerned, that is when you should consider my edits. I have been frustrated by an unnamed IP user who has, been trolling my edits and reverting them but who refuses to register their name or, for that matter participate in the discussion. So in that situation, if that user wants continues doing that, be it un-kosher, I have no problem with exploiting that asterisk in the 1RR that allows an indefinite number of reverts to IP users. I don't know about you, but I don't consider that edit-warring. And, no, I don't know Supreme Deliciousness in real life. -asad (talk) 20:46, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Re: Bilu

Hi Brewcrewer! A bit late to notify, but I did what you requested, and completely agree that the name Bilu'im was unjustified. Cheers, Ynhockey (Talk) 19:25, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. You don't think BILU is better?--brewcrewer (yada, yada) 02:39, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
No. —Ynhockey (Talk) 06:16, 10 January 2011 (UTC)


I proposed an article for deletion and am having my contributions attacked without having my reasoning addressed. If others agree it shouldn't be deleted, ok, but I don't see why I deserve to be attacked and to have someone cast aspersions on my contributions. (talk) 01:46, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

What is the underlying issue there?--brewcrewer (yada, yada) 02:16, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
I proposed an article for deletion and then was treated rudely. Regarding the article, it's an article listing a team's record under a specific head coach, which I felt was unnecessary, because other articles cover the team's year to year record, and it's not the Wikipedia standard to have separate articles to list records under different head coaches. And there are articles for season to season records. If others don't think the article should be deleted, ok, but I don't believe I should be insulted when I didn't do anything wrong. (talk) 03:22, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
No, you should not be treated rudely just because you are editing from an IP address. However I haven't investigated the underlying issue so I will avoid commenting on the specifics. Wikipedia:Wikiquette alerts might be a good forum for the problem you are facing. Best,--brewcrewer (yada, yada) 03:31, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
The whole thing is on that user's talk page. There's no further background. The reason I came to you was to ask you to ask him please not to treat me rudely just because I'm editing from an IP address. He won't listen to my suggestion because of that, I guess. (talk) 03:54, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
Now he's claiming I intentionally change IPs, when in reality, my IP changes several times a day without my control or knowledge. (talk) 18:18, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
Can this be referred to someone else? I don't know how to file wikiquette reports and it sounds like a waste of time anyway. (talk) 16:14, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

He's complaining about me removing a delete tag he made as "spurious". It's much ado about his ego. Best, Markvs88 (talk) 19:22, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

More of the same. He's continuing to attack me. (talk) 20:32, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but I can't be of any assistance. Either file a complaint at Wikipedia:Wikiquette alerts or find another editor interested in mediating disputes. Good luck,--brewcrewer (yada, yada) 20:35, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
Sorry for any inconvenience on the part of my offended "friend" here. Best, Markvs88 (talk) 22:18, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

List of Israeli attacks on Palestinians, 2011

Please do not add unsourced content. This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Passionless (talk) 04:37, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for telling me about Wikipedia's policies. I will try to make sure I only add sourced content to Wikipeida, lest I get blocked as you mentioned. However, would you be so kind as to elaborate on what unsourced content I added? Thank you very much, --brewcrewer (yada, yada) 16:52, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

As I posted on the talk page, your going to need a source when you make the claim that Hamas is firing missles at Israel. Passionless (talk) 21:45, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. Hadn't noticed your comment on the talk page. I have commented there and look forward to your response.--brewcrewer (yada, yada) 21:53, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Blood libel (U.S. political term)

I suggest you self-revert before I report you for violating 1RR. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 00:53, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

I don't understand. I reverted as many times as you did.--brewcrewer (yada, yada) 00:55, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
For some reason, reverting IPs doesn't count. See WP:ARBPIA#General 1RR restriction. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 00:58, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
nice wikilawyering. i self reverted.--brewcrewer (yada, yada) 01:00, 13 January 2011 (UTC)


As you seem like a reasonable i guy i suggest you take a look at this edit.[1] (talk) 14:58, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

I have followed up on the matter.[2]--brewcrewer (yada, yada) 16:59, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks208.115.203.14 (talk) 21:39, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
it was added by a sock by the infamous Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/SameerJaved/Archive who has used multiple accounts since being banned. . Clearly, socks of banned users (especially this very persistent one) are not allowed to contribute. I don't know why (talk · contribs · WHOIS) is so interested... LibStar (talk) 23:12, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

You would be very kind fi you could take a look at this edit.[3] User:LibStar has been removing perfectley relevant and sourced content from Immigration and crime a number of times and some weeks ago he nominated it for deletion because it had "to little content" and covered "to few coutries". Link to is explanation for deletion: [4].Greenleafr (talk) 23:47, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Rachel's Tomb

The edits you just performed are absolutely absurd. You essentially said you removed certain material in the lead because it was "cited" and they were "primary sources". So if that were truly the case and that was truly the reason why you removed it, then you would logically saw it better to keep the material and add the sources later on the the article. You also removed the part about Palestinians not having access to the site, but you didn't remove the part about Israelis not have access to the site? Can it get more blatantly POV than that. And BTW, on WP: LEAD it says determining the citations in the lead is something to be reached by consensus, something you DIDN'T do. -asad (talk) 21:59, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Please raise your concerns on the article talk page (in a somewhat more civil and calm manner).--brewcrewer (yada, yada) 22:18, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Congratulations to my 100th watchlister!!

I am pleased to announce that I now have 100 talk page stalkers (though a smart ass or two will now unwatch me).[5] The 100th talk page stalker gets a nice barnstar as a prize if he or she reveals him/her-self to me (the emphasis of gender neutrality is surely one the attractions of this talk page).--brewcrewer (yada, yada) 01:50, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Maybe it was me since I saw you made that remark on my page. Could I get a bowl of porridge instead? A star will not put food on the table. GGdowney (talk) 07:20, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Nope. You opened your account on the 16th,[6] three days after this comment. Unless you had it watchlisted on another account ;) --brewcrewer (yada, yada) 07:37, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Nope 2. Just didn't pay attention to the time when reading through your history. I guess I'll learn that lesson to keep track of the time printed after the messages. GGdowney (talk) 08:10, 18 January 2011 (UTC)


No thanks. Closed means closed. And I think you would do well to actually read the 1RR restriction. It only applies to articles. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 06:46, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Interesting. Remind me please to edit-war over a template because it's not an "article." --brewcrewer (yada, yada) 06:48, 18 January 2011 (UTC)


Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there currently is a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. --Noleander (talk) 15:13, 18 January 2011 (UTC)


Maybe I'm over-reacting, but I'd hoped the personal attacks would have stopped a while back. Here ya go. Sol (talk) 19:00, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

List of Israeli attacks on Palestinian targets, 2011

I have asked you many times to come back to the discussion and stop making unilateral movements.

This is your last warning; the next time you move a page maliciously, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Passionless (talk) 22:32, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Twinkle abuse

Could you take a look at the recent twinkle reverts by User:This lousy T-shirt? It seems like the articles have lost quality after series of unexplained edits. [7] (talk) 04:35, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Populating categories

Thank you for creating Category:Łódź Ghetto]. I'd suggest you add it as the main category to Ghetto Litzmannstadt and transfer the categories from that article to the new main category. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 21:52, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. Though I own all articles and categories I create, I hereby grant you permission to edit them as your heart desires.--brewcrewer (yada, yada) 21:57, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

CFDS query

Responded to your question at CFDS. Good Ol’factory (talk) 01:41, 26 January 2011 (UTC)


Are you planning to explain/justify labeling Falk as a member of a set of people when he says that he is not a member of that set on the talk page of the article so that others can chip in ? The sources you added are opinion pieces. It's a BLP. I assume you read Wikipedia:Neutral_point_of_view/Noticeboard#Is_this_reasonable.3F and saw the quote. Sean.hoyland - talk 05:02, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Hey Sean, You must have confused my talk page with the article talk page. One point I will respond at this time is that, in general, how to describe a subject is decided by secondary sources, not the subject himself. If you like I will try to get into more specifics on the article talk page next time I can log in. My mommy says I must go to sleep now.--brewcrewer (yada, yada) 05:15, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
Not confused, disappointed that you again added an opinion as an unattributed fact in Wiki's voice. You can do better than that and I think you expect others to do better than that in other articles. That's why I put the message here. I agree that how to describe a subject is decided by secondary sources but that includes the Salon source where Falk addresses this specific point. Anyway, I'll drop a note on the talk page if you don't beat me to it. Sean.hoyland - talk 05:35, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
