Hello Brw12, welcome to Wikipedia.

You might find these links helpful: How to edit a page, How to write a great article, Naming conventions, Manual of Style. You should read our policies at some point too.

If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump, or ask me on my talk page. I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian!

  • You can introduce yourself on the new users page.
  • You can find lots more information, including open tasks and daily tips, at the community portal.
  • You can sign your name using three tildes, like this: ~~~. If you use four, you can add a datestamp as well.
  • Before saving a page, it's a good idea to use the Show preview button to review your edits. Also, consider writing a summary for each edit.

Again, welcome! Chris Roy 05:24, 19 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Christopher Clinton and Shomar Foster[edit]

Please stop creating nonsense articles like these. According to your user contributions and talk page, you first came to Wikipedia almost ayear ago, and even if you only come occasionally, you should no better. Academic Challenger 23:44, 10 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Response: sorry, I made them to demonstrate to high school students the basic editability of Wikipedia. They weren't nonsense, they were accurate, but focused on non-newsworthy people. I didn't know about that principle at the time.

Denying Israel's right to exist=antisemitism[edit]

If I wrote that the Republic of Georgia should cease to exist, Georgians are not a separate people, etc., would it be safe to assume that I harbor prejudice against Georgians? I think so. The same applies to Jews and Israel. --Leifern 20:33, 26 December 2005 (UTC)

I disagree. "A separate people" is a subjective categorization that does not have any agreed meaning, and furthermore, it is not a claim made by most who criticize the moral validity of a state whose basis is ethnically exclusive. "Cease to exist" is also a deliberately sensational wording. Many critics of Israel instead call for Israel to evolve politically into a polity which fundamentally includes all people in its territory. Your misleading evasion of the very valid central criticisms of the millions of critics of Israel who are not at all anti-Semitic suggests that you would rather not address their criticisms. I'll take that as a vote of your confidence that their criticisms have merit. Welcome to the enormous club of critics of Israel who are not anti-Semitic!

Nope, I'm from Oregon, and I'm afraid I've never been further east than Los Angeles. Sarge Baldy 11:41, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
