Re "Advice/Questions"[edit]

I templated Gussert for autobio and COI; note that he hasn't edited since November 2007. As to the merge proposal: give it a bit more time before doing anything; there is no deadline to be met here. --Orange Mike | Talk 13:22, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

HUAC[edit]

I thank you for your kind words. Depsite our differences I've always found your comments to be thoughful and reasonable.
I assure you my edits to the HUAC article were just an attempt to improve it's accuracy. I ackowledge that the MD committe was a precursor to HUAC. I was just making the point that the MD committe mainly investigated fascist activity and that HUAC was not officially formed until 1938. I'm not saying that the MD committe didn't have porblems of it's own, just that it was a seperate investigation from HUAC that had an entirely differenct focus.
I likewise look forward to debating you again on the Business plot talk page, just not right now. I'm still a little burned out on that subject and would like to wait a week or two before I come back to it.annoynmous 09:57, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

business plot[edit]

Thanks for the link. NB that Ted Frank has a Wikipedia link, and that you may (or may not) wish to cite the American article to balance the discussion of Buchanan in the main text of the Wikipedia article. THF (talk) 13:40, 1 June 2009 (UTC):

Creat page[edit]

I notice you were trying to nominate Creat page for deletion but you didn't do it properly. The article seems to meet speedy deletion criterion A7, so I've just tagged it as that.

Easy-Way Store[edit]

I have no independent knowledge regarding the significance of Easy-Way Store -- I've never been to Memphis, much less bought groceries there.

I found an unsourced and unlinked reference to the store and its founder in another article, searched Google for information about the man and the business, and created the article about the business on the fly while trimming the unsourced trivia out of the other article. I guess I should have flagged the page as "under construction" when I created it, but since it was flagged as "patrolled," I did not anticipate that a new-page patroller would come by to tag it for deletion before I had a chance to finish working on it.

It appears to me that the business is notable based on its longevity as a business, the existence of multiple independent articles about it, and indications that it is considered to be a "local institution". The fact that there are many other grocery stores in the Memphis metro area (most of them operated corporate chains that are the subject of separate articles) does not prevent this small chain from being notable. As a privately held business, it is unlikely to be the subject of the same types of coverage as publicly held businesses receive.

I've now finished the article with material I found in various online sources. There were other ghits to articles that are no longer online, and I imagine that Wikipedians in the Memphis area could add more sourced content. Please let me know if you still have concerns about the article. --Orlady (talk) 17:22, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

It's obvious that nothing will change collects mind. No matter what edits or suggestions I make he will come out against them. You have always struck me as reasonable and fair despite our disagreements. I have made a compromise edit that trys to include everyones concerns. I hope we can engage in a constructive debate on the talk page and not get bogged down in another senseless revert war. annoynmous 04:34, 13 July 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for dropping in. The idea is to talk on the article talk page before making what you know are non-consensus edits. I again ask you (Annoynmous) to self-revert so that we can have a reasoned discussion. Thanks! Collect (talk) 11:27, 13 July 2009 (UTC)


when we last were discussing this, the editor removed only "Wall St Putsch"... now all 3 alternative subject titles have been removed...

ASTM boilerplate[edit]

Hi capitalismojo, while I understand that you didn't know what the ASTM is, I don't think that is a good enough reason for you to add a boilerplate to every ASTM article about who the ASTM is. The beauty of Wikipedia is that we add internal links to an article so that those who are more interested in that term or idea can follow the link to learn more. Moreover, its hard to keep redundant info upto date when it is posted on multiple articles. As such, I definitely think these boilerplates should be removed.

Blackwater[edit]

Please do not change the name of the section. What I'll say is that I'm trying to assume good faith, but that your edits at least could strongly appear as ones trying to frame a valid critique of Blackwater, made by many sources, including Jeremy Scahill, widely regarded as an expert on the subject (as described here by constitutional law professor Glen Greenwald [1]) as somehow a wild-eyed "conspiracy theory." You're not employing an appropriately neutral tone. I attempted to rephrase most of the sentences in this section earlier, and don't believe the section still qualifies as violating any "copyright laws," but if you have specific complaints on this subject, please share them with me or with others on the Talk page. Adlerschloß (talk) 21:49, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

I replied on the talk page, but will also record here that the key problem I was attempting to solve was a major copyright violation, also the term "conspiracy theory" was used in the news accounts referenced in the section. It was not my term. I am glad we were able to resolve this amiably and reasonably. Capitalismojo (talk) 04:00, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Twisted Complex: Non-Notable?[edit]

Capitalismojo, while it is true that TC: BOTFH is only being self-published, the fact of the matter is that it has a small cult following on Facebook, one which is growing a little at a time. Within the coming year, this book is expected to boom in popularity. The Wiki page is weak simply because I have very little time per day/week to work on it. Within a month, it will be a notable page with decent amount of traffic as popularity builds. If does not live up to basic standards, please tell me how it can. This book means the world to the author and it's fans, and it deserves a page of it's own. Apollo-kun (talk) 16:58, 25 August 2009 (UTC)apollo-kun

Please see my talk page or the article's discussion page.  Kiefer.Wolfowitz 15:43, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

I believe that you should restore the banner. The problem is that copyright violations appear in the history of the page and so require administrative action.
After my revision, no problems should have remained---it was unnecessary but perhaps better to begin a new article.  Kiefer.Wolfowitz 17:35, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

Don't forget a redirect![edit]

If you're creating an article (Identical or extremely similar to) one that already exists, create a redirect from the other (less-common) title. I would say just move it, but you've already created the article. anyway, thanks for editing wikipedia! Ncboy2010 (talk) 19:23, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

No problem. =] I forget stuff too sometimes. Ncboy2010 (talk) 19:25, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
Actually you did it wrong. To rename a page you have to move it, copy and pasting the content to a new title and redirecting the old one is bad, it means the history required for copyright reasons is in the wrong place. I have removed the redirect from National Republican Trust Political Action Group, and redirected National Republican Trust to it, if you want to change the title please do it properly--Jac16888 Talk 01:32, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

American Liberty League[edit]

The existing article concerning the American Liberty League is incorrect as it describes the American Liberty League as a defunct organisation. This is not the case. The American Liberty League is very much an active political group, with offices in Washington DC, at 1101 Pennsylvania Ave., NW, a facebook page, a twitter presence, business cards, a mailing list and all. In addition to that, I am not very happy with the description of my late grandfather, Gerald MacGuire, as some kind of seedy plotter and fascist. He was a decorated veteran of the Boxer Rebellion and was gravely wounded in combat, during World War I; but as he's been dead for seventy five years I guess he could hardly worry about a little libel. In any case I attempted to correct the page with correct and updated information and I did this as a representative of the American Liberty League. Mr Eleuthere Paul DuPont, our Chairman is willing that a new page be created for our organisation, though we regard the League of the 1930's and our modern League to be one and the same. Either that or we would be satisfied to have the current page removed in its entirety in order that any possible confusion be avoided.

Best wishes,

Leah Vukmir[edit]

Although since Americans have figured out what the ALEC does, many of its members have started downplaying their participation in it, Vukmir's website still brags about it! --Orange Mike | Talk 15:50, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

ALEC[edit]

Tommy Thompson and all the other members I attached the category to are identified in the master American Legislative Exchange Council article--Thompson in the History paragraph. That paragraph, in turn, is sourced by the organization's main website [2] where Thompson's name appears in the second paragraph. Trackinfo (talk) 17:02, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for correcting whatever errors are out there. But I don't follow your logic. How could alec.org not be a reliable source about the names of members, the leaders of its own organization? Certainly if an article were to say someone is employed by a particular institution, the BEST logical source would be to quote that organization's staff directory rather than from an outsider like what we would consider a normal RS--the press--to be. I use staff directories to verify employment in many articles. Beyond the current people on that list, yes, we will need to go to outside sources. I welcome your help to find such sources and add to the list. Trackinfo (talk) 23:39, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
This discussion moved to article talk. Just to finalize this thread, this organization is a legislative membership organization, when someone is no longer a legislator they are no longer a member. They are then former members and should be listed as such. Capitalismojo (talk) 15:01, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
Just a FYI. ALEC has not always been helpful about its internal workings, so there's some opacity there. In the face of criticism, GEO Group bailed from ALEC maybe four years ago because, they admitted, it looked improper. CCA took longer to officially drop its membership. However I understand that they both continued to be exhibitors at ALEC conferences, though they would not have had the influence they did when CCA chaired the various versions of its criminal justice committee and GEO was a committee member. ALEC also underwent a major overhaul last year, dividing activities in response to complaints about illegal lobbying, I'd guess. Activist (talk) 18:49, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Ted Frank photo[edit]

Civil?? You think I'm taking a swipe at him but I'm actually serious. He makes his living from trying to reduce the salaries of his fellow lawyers often seemingly just to prove a point and little to gain himself which causes a lot of resentment from many towards him. I don't think he'd like having a photograph in his article for privacy and security purposes. Why don't you ask him for a photograph and find out? He has a blog and website.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 18:20, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I did indeed believe you were taking a swipe at him. There is nothing at the article to suggest such vast animus or security concerns, but then I am not a lawyer. His photo pops up on Google in .19 seconds. Perhaps I will ask for a photo.Capitalismojo (talk) 18:29, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
Of course anybody can google him to identify him, but a lot of people wouldn't like their photo in the article for privacy reasons or even approve of their own articles. As you can see by the talk page he has multiple issues with the article itself and how "he has been treated" in the article, the impression I get is that I don't honestly think he's the sort of guy who is easy to please or would be willing to help with photographs, but feel free to prove me wrong.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 18:34, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Explanation[edit]

Hello. Please, don't revert my edit. You can check that any page related to a papal conclave contains the elected cardinal's name before the papal name, and it obviously redirects to the latter one.

Ruta Quetzal[edit]

I made that contributions in Ruta Quetzal because the origin of the term Latin America: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin_America#Etymology_and_definitions . For me the correct form to refer to all these countries is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibero-America or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hispanic_America.

a simple redirect takes 5 seconds, an article creation takes 5 minutes. Think that before you do so hasty unilateral moves. Wikipedia will not be shut down if the article stays for a few more hours...--Reader1987 (talk) 16:44, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

often there is the need for one user to create a blurb, to be expanded then by other interested people soon afterwards, while he may have not the time to do that.

"Changes to Haitham al-Haddad"[edit]

Dear Capitalismojo,

Thank you for your kind words in my talk page.

I sincerely hope you aid wikipedia in keeping good articles for which we all (?) love wikipedia!

Now that we've expressed some good words of greetings, I feel it my need to state that the changes to Dr Haitham Al Haddad's page does not only increase the completedness of the contents of the page, but is absolutenely vital and imperative.

Dr Haitham is an influential personality in the Islamic world. He is a well known speaker in 'Peace TV' and 'Huda (Guidance) TV' and his speeches are viewed perhaps by millions of (or less?) people in the world.

As such his wikipedia profile should show a balanced view as per Wikipedia policies!

I think adding in his educational qualifications is vital and even if you disagrees (which I respectfully accept) to its need, I hope that you would accept that there is no harm in outlining the educational qualifications.

Other than his educational qualifications, his life and other details are also important (according to my little knowledge, my friend) to be added to the article to ensure it shows a balanced and complete profile of Dr. Haddad.

Furthermore, (and I hope you will be patient with me for taking your time) introducing this famous personality as controversial in the first line is extremely misleading and biased. Undoubtedly, many famous personnel (and SPECIALLY religious personnels who speak about right and wrong..) will suffer (or enjoy) from controversy. Yet, this cannot be the base line for their introduction. Like most pages Ive seen, the controversies relating to Dr. Haddad can come under a seperate section of the article.


I sincerely hope you will not mind at my differing with you in these matters. After all, we are all different so we are bound to have differences.

I thank you again for the kind words in my talk page..

Kind regards MuhammadAbdullah1234

Haddad is a freakin' salafi radical, so cool down. Hamnavoe (talk) 08:17, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

Brett Davis[edit]

Hi-Many thanks for working on the Brett Davis article.-RFD (talk) 16:08, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

CFB North Bay[edit]

Thank you for your remarks concerning the CFB North Bay Wikipedia article. I am the Wing Heritage Officer for the base, essentially a history/heritage public affairs officer.

Regarding my contributions to the page, the key, fundamental problem is that there is no one outside of the base who can provide accurate data to the article that can be substantiated. Reasons are two-fold: there have been very few books published in the civilian world about Canada's post-Second World War air force and because of RCAF Station/CFB North Bay's critical front-line role in the defence of North America against nuclear attack, the base has kept a low profile, thus is seldom mentioned in any of the books that have been published. Example: the British book "Cold War Secret Nuclear Bunkers", by N.J. McCamley, published by Pen & Sword Books in 2002, describes NORAD and mentions Canada, but fails to include CFB North Bay's NORAD Underground Complex even though the complex had been in operation for 39 years. The same goes for magazine and newspaper articles, other than the local newspaper, the North Bay Nugget.

The results of this problem showed in the article's first few years, in that none of the contributors showed that they had the slightest inkling of the base or its history. Few, if any, had even visited the base. Moreover none of the contributors had researched the base's historical archives, or Canadian government records about the base at the Library & Archives of Canada or the Department of National Defence's Directorate of History & Heritage to gather data and check the accuracy of their work. Consequently--contrary to the requirements of Wikipedia--and why they were never picked up for this by Wikipedia monitors eludes me--(a) all of their contributions comprised opinions, assumptions and suppositions versus facts, and (b) none of their contributions had any verifiable substantiation. The article was a dog's breakfast of mistakes, inaccuracies and omissions. Anyone viewing the Wikipedia article would read incorrect information about the base and its history.

The base commander and command staff finally had had enough of people writing about our base, who hadn't a clue about the base. It's like someone inputting data as an expert about the Magna Carta who doesn't know what the Magna Carta is, and has never even seen the document.

This said, I must stress that I, and the base, have absolutely no qualms about people not from the base contributing to the CFB North Bay article or editing the article. This is welcomed. It helps make the article better.

In 2011, as the subject matter expert, I began amending the article and making contributions under three strict criteria:

1. Facts only to be inserted in the article, no op-ed or embellishments. If you read the article, you will find that this is the case.

2. No opinions, assumptions or suppositions. (As given in the citations listed in the article) all of the material inserted by me comes directly from (a) original base and base unit documents, (b) historical Canadian government documents (as at the Library & Archives of Canada and Directorate of History & Heritage), and (c) reputable books and newspaper articles. The first two are 'horse's mouth' sources; they do not get more accurate or verifiable than this.

Example: the CFB North Bay Wikipedia article states that the NORAD Underground Complex was designed to withstand a 4-megaton nuclear strike. While there are no public books on the subject, there is an 80-page engineering document in our historical archives, "Report on Hardening of SAGE, SCC, North Bay for A.D. Margison & Associates Ltd, Consulting Engineers, March 1960" by D.F. Coates, P.Eng, Ottawa, Canada, that details the engineering data and lays out the mathematical computations for the Underground Complex withstanding a nuclear strike. Formerly classified Secret, now anyone can review it.

These are the documents primary, secondary and tertiary sources would have to consult, anyhow, to make contributions to the Wikipedia article. To use the Magna Carta analogy, anyone wishing to write about the substance of the Magna Carta would have to consult a contemporary copy of the document.

3. Which brings me to the last criterion: every source used in the article has to be available to the public, and open to fine-toothed scrutiny. The newspapers and books are, of course, readily accessible to the public. Anyone can access all of the documents in base archives used as sources for the article. The same goes for the Library & Archives of Canada and Directorate of History & Heritage. Because of the paucity of third-party material about CFB North Bay out there, this point, of public accessibility to our sources, was strongly and singularly emphasized.

As for conflict of interest, it does not apply because what would I or the base gain from attempting to promote my interests or the base's interests? We are not a corporation trying to use the article to market our wares, for instance. If you read the article you will see that everything inserted is fact versus opinion or spin; this is our air force base and this is its history, period.

As for the article being "substantially and heavily edited". I ask you, without sarcasm or cynicism, who outside the base has the knowledge and source material regarding CFB North Bay to do this? Past experience has shown that the answer, unfortunately, is nobody. It will reduce the article to the shambles it once was, that got us involved in the article to begin with.

Incidentally, over this summer I shall be inserting jpegs of graphics and photos of the base and from its history, to complement the text. Many of these graphics and photos have seldom been seen by the public.

Our base's (ergo my) sole purpose for amending and contributing to the article is to provide correct information about CFB North Bay. To reiterate, every source used by me is available to the public for his/her/their scrutiny.

Your edit: "On July 18, 2013, Detroit filed the largest municipal bankruptcy case in U.S. history, culminating a decades-long decline that transformed the America’s iconic industrial city into a model of urban decline crippled by population loss, a dwindling tax base and financial problems. The city's bankruptcy petition was filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Detroit."

Your opinion is needed in this discussion on Talk:Zeitgeist: The Movie[edit]

Hi. Two editors are advocating for the exclusion of any mention in the Zeitgeist: The Movie article that Peter Joseph, the creator of that film has stated publicly that words attributed to him in a story cited as a source in the article misquoted him, and that he has not distanced himself from the ideas expressed in that film, as that cited source indicates. I have responded to their arguments, but neither of them has responded directly to my counterarguments, but simply repeat the same statements of theirs over and over. Myself and one other editor disagree with them, so two editors are for the material's inclusion, and two are for its exclusion, with no sign of consensus in sight. Can you please offer your viewpoint in the discussion so that we can achieve consensus? Thank you. Nightscream (talk) 01:08, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Can you explain on the talk page how pointing out when you've been misquoted shows a "disregard for the truth, interests, or well-being of others", given that that's the definition provided in three reference sources, which I noted in the discussion at least three or four times? I get it, you think it's self-serving. I'm asking if you understand what that phrase means, or if you using a different definition of it. Thanks. Nightscream (talk) 02:27, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
Self-published or questionable sources as sources on themselves

Self-published and questionable sources may be used as sources of information about themselves, usually in articles about themselves or their activities, without the self-published source requirement that they be published experts in the field, so long as:

  • the material is neither unduly self-serving nor an exceptional claim;
  • it does not involve claims about third parties;

Fascism[edit]

Here is the definition of fascism one finds on the Oxford English Dictionary:

an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization. (in general use) extreme right-wing, authoritarian, or intolerant views or practice.

Here is the definition of fascism one finds online: fascism [ˈfæʃɪzəm] n (sometimes capital) 1. (Government, Politics & Diplomacy) any ideology or movement inspired by Italian Fascism, such as German National Socialism; any right-wing nationalist ideology or movement with an authoritarian and hierarchical structure that is fundamentally opposed to democracy and liberalism 2. (Government, Politics & Diplomacy) any ideology, movement, programme, tendency, etc., that may be characterized as right-wing, chauvinist, authoritarian, etc.

Please note that F is characterized not as "radical nationalism" but as a social and political movement. Footnotes (1 and 2) say Fascists espoused nationalist ideas not that F is essentially a form of nationalism. Fascism's identity, the core essence that distinguishes it from other political movements, is that it is a "radical rightwing political and social movement." It had qualities and characteristics such as nationalist.

The entry's introduction is ahistorical and should be historical.

Here are some samples from other encyclopedias:

Fascism is a term used to describe historically specific interwar (1919-45) European political movements and doctrines. Its derivation is from fasces, the ceremonial bundles of rods containing an axe with its head protuding, symbolizing the authority of the ancient Roman republic (which many Fascist governments wished to emulate). Fascist is also used more loosely to describe any form of right-wing authoritarian régime which is not explicitly socialist. In its most loose usage fascism is employed to denigrate people espousing either right-wing or left-wing views with which the speaker or writer disagrees. (Bloomsbury Guide to Human Thought)

Sometimes used as a word of abuse to refer to movements or individuals who are intolerant or authoritarian, fascism is certainly intolerant and authoritarian, but it is more than this. It is a movement that seeks to establish a dictatorship of the “right” (that is an ultra-conservative position that rejects liberalism and anything associated with the “left”). It targets communists, socialists, trade unionists, and liberals through banning their parties and their members, so that these groups cannot exercise their political, legal, or social rights. It is anti-liberal, regarding liberal values as a form of “decadence” and seeing them as opening the floodgates to socialist, communist, and egalitarian movements. (Cambridge)

Here is what I propose to insert:

"Fascism is a radical rightwing political movement and form of social organization characterized by nationalism, authoritarianism, xenophobia, and the use of state violence to terrorize leftwing opponents and to attain political ends. It arose in the early 20th century in response to the rise of economic egalitarianism, cultural liberalism, liberal democracy, and the perceived decadence of European society. It sought to restore a social order founded on hierarchy, submission to the state, inequality, and traditional rightwing values such as the church, the family, and law and order."

Let me know what you think.

If we continue to disagree, let's take it to mediation.

Fascism 2[edit]

Here below is the change in "Fascism" I will be making.

Please let me know what you think.

I'm happy to work on it with you.

Again, let's go to mediation if we can't resolve this.

Mryan1451 (talk) 13:08, 15 August 2013 (UTC)mryan1451

Here are some justifications for the changes I've made: "Hi, Everyone. I've made a number of changes. Justification follows. Please read carefully and get back to me on my talk page. We will likely have to go to mediation on this. The entry is out of keeping with standard definitions. Those describe F as a rightwing social and political movement of which nationalism is one feature. But nationalism is not what defines F. The first two notes even makes this clear, as they describe Fascists as espousing nationalist ideas--not as being nothing but nationalists. Also, there has always been in this entry an attempt to make F seem indistinguishable from socialism and communism. The use of words like "totalitarian state" and "vanguard party" reflect this somewhat propagandistic impulse. They should be removed. They do not occur in any other definition in any other encyclopedia. The same is true of the word "revolution," which lumps fascists with leftwing revolutionaries (the ones the word revolution is usually associated with). All in all, there is distinct rightward bias to the entry as it stands, especially in the introductory paragraphs in the repeated references to the State--which suggest a libertarian capitalist bias. The entry needs to be made more neutral and more in keeping with other encyclopedia entries. Those entries tend to be more historical, and we need an historical dimension here as well. All in all, this is a very tendentious entry that needs to made into something more judicious and accurate."

Here are the proposed changes:

Fascism /ˈfæʃɪzəm/ was a radical rightwing political movement and form of social organization characterized by nationalism, authoritarianism, xenophobia, and the use of state violence to attain political ends. It arose in the early 20th century in western Europe in response to the rise of social liberalism, communist revolution, and the perceived cultural decadence of European society. It sought to restore a social order founded on hierarchy, submission to the state, property inequality, and traditional rightwing values such as the church, the family, and law and order.

Fascism refers specifically to an Italian political movement (1927-1945), but the term is also used to characterize other rightwing political movements in Germany, Spain, and elsewhere during this period. Fascism is usually distinguished from other authoritarian political forms by the mass mobilization of the national community in accordance with the fascist principles of hierarchy, corporatism, and law and order.[1] Hostile to liberal democracy, socialism, and communism, fascist movements share certain common features, including the veneration of the state, a devotion to a strong leader, and an emphasis on ultranationalism and militarism. Fascism views political violence, war, and imperialism as a means to achieve national rejuvenation and asserts that stronger nations have the right to obtain land and resources by displacing weaker nations.

Fascism sought to provide a solution to the divisions between classes within the nation by displacing attention to the conflict between nations and races. It advocates a mixed economy, with the principal goal of achieving autarky to secure national self-sufficiency and independence through protectionist and interventionist economic policies.Fascism supports what is sometimes called a Third Position between capitalism and Marxist socialism. Fascist movements emphasize a belligerent, virulent form of nationalism (chauvinism) and a distrust of foreigners (xenophobia), the latter closely linked to the ethnocentrism of many fascist movements. The typical fascist state also embraced militarism, a belief in the rigors and virtues of military life as an individual and national ideal, meaning much of public life was organized along military lines and an emphasis put on uniforms, parades, and monumental architecture.

Fascism section one revision[edit]

Hi, thanks for getting back.

The problems with the first section of the entry go beyond the missing word "rightwing."

There is also a problem with defining F as "nationalism," with blurring the distinction between rightwing F and leftwing socialism, with the overemphasis on "statism" which seems to reflect a libertarian conservative bias, and with an absence of a sense of history.

I just posted today a revision of the entire first section on the Talk page of the article.

am confuse by two things relate to edit at https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Bradley_Manning&curid=27630477&diff=572667836&oldid=572664799

for first, why is remove? web site is one of noted journalist who cover trial and receive grant from journalist institution to do work. is not personal blog where she talk about boys and hair--is useful repository of original documentation relate to case and fact thereof. is not even controversial statement, is only statement of fact on one charge.

for second, why not inform as request in edit? very rude. Lakdfhia (talk) 03:16, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

If you believe that the personal website is a reliable source, you can make that point at the article talk page or at the Reliable Sources Noticeboard. Several editors have now looked at it and concluded it is not, but you can make the case that it is, in fact, a eliable source. As regards notifying editors of reverts, that's just not done here at Wikipedia. Each editor have a Watchlist at the top of the page. Any pages you have edited are automatically watched for changes. Also, you should also have a notification button at the top of your page, that automatically informs you if your edits are reverted. That is how people are informed of changes here. Capitalismojo (talk) 14:47, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
am unsure what is meant by "several editors have now looked at it and concluded it is not [reliable source]"--where was discussed? cannot find to give own input. Lakdfhia (talk) 18:03, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Slim Virgin [3] made the first removal of this material with the note that it was removing personal website ref. I reviewed your edit and the ref and made the same conclusion about the ref. Capitalismojo (talk) 18:22, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
thank you for guidance, is much appreciate--am new as editor, do not know how approach of problems is handle at times. Lakdfhia (talk) 18:40, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

Your edits to Smedley Butler[edit]

You cannot make additions to the article, by undoing mine and then tell me to take them to talk, which is entirely hypocritical. There isn't a single mention throughout the article that Butler was a self-proclaimed Socialist or proclaimed himself left-wing and the source you dug up is clearly laughable, you do not even know how to cite a source firstly, you just took a random link from amazon which you no doubt searched up and haven't even read and pasted it into the lead, simply because an historian calls him left-wing doesn't make him so he just happened to have some similar views. Criticizing an action, for example "this business makes profit" is not a political viewpoint, its just a fact, I do not become left-wing for pointing that out. Guidelines suggest refs shouldnt be in the lead anyway, but thats besides the point. Keep this up and I'm taking this to the administrators because I do not consider this to be a disagreement on content, but someone (yourself) commiting to contentious editing and censorhsip to put forward a view, completely against Wikipedia. --JTBX (talk) 17:52, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

If you are concerned about an incident please feel free to take it to ANI. Know that I am uncertain, based on your comment, what precisely you consider that incident to be. You have made a Bold addition to the article lede. It has been reverted by several editors. You have been invited to discuss the content on the talk page. This is the essence of WP:BRD. I look forward to reaching a consensus on the lede quickly. Thanks. Capitalismojo (talk) 19:07, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

Copyvio one sentence[edit]

Hi. Re this edit: I believe I addressed your WP:COPYVIO concern. I'm just writing to improve my understanding of the policy. While I have some knowledge of copyright law, I know next to nothing about Wikipedia's treatment of it.

I've assumed that a single sentence can be copied verbatim from a reliable source, particularly when it's contains contentious language (neutrality issues aside). Sometimes if you stray from the language even slightly then you're distorting the source and creating a neutrality/OR issue. However, this has now gotten me into trouble a couple of times, with editors reverting my additions citing COPYVIO. So my question is, are you familiar with any guidance (policies, guidelines, essays) on the subject of very small (e.g. single sentence) copying? If not I suppose I'll post an inquiry at Wikipedia talk:Copyright violations. Cheers. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 20:31, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

ALEC January 2014[edit]

Hey, just a note about your recent removal of "and business representatives." Aside from the fact that this bit is well-cited in the body of the article and therefore doesn't require a citation in the lead, it's generally considered to be rather aggressive to remove non-controversial uncited material without warning. In fact the relevant guideline says uncited material should only be removed if it's both doubtful and harmful (or a BLP violation). In this particular case you know as well as I that ALEC is composed of business representatives in addition to legislators, so the material you removed can hardly be called doubtful, let alone harmful. Cheers. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 18:31, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

The in-line refs for that sentence did not say "and business representatives." There are other refs elsewhere in the article that talk about membership. They mention business, non-profit, and think-tank members. Those were not used in the refs for that sentence. I think that the older lead sentence that talked about non-profit and members was better. However I don't generally like making large edits. It seemed best to edit conservatively and stick with what the current ref said. Capitalismojo (talk) 21:09, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
Given this discussion and your thoughts, I'll re-add the non-profit, and think tank members to the sentence. Capitalismojo (talk) 23:15, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
I don't like those. The non-profits and think tank members are all for business groups and are therefore business representatives. Putting these in the lead might be seen as misleadingly suggesting a very different kind of organization. Beside, ALEC isn't primarily known for its non-profit and think tank members. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 00:06, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
In any case, my point wasn't so much about the merits of your removal of "and business representatives" as much as your decision to delete the phrase instead of adding a cn tag. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 00:08, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
Well, no. There are straight-out educational think tanks. There are non-profit groups like the NRA. There is even an odd umbrella group that combines a co-op and a state water authority. The fact that some of the non-profits are business trade associations does not change the fact that they are non-profits and that not "all" the non-profits are for business groups. Its just not so.

Fair enough. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 00:25, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

Fascism?[edit]

I apologize for the tagging of the article without putting something on the talk page, but I simply could not stand the condition of the article. The "Clarification needed" superscripts and the sheer complexity of the article bothered me.

Edits to Wayne Madsen's biography[edit]

Capitalismojo,

Last night I edited the top part of Wayne Madsen's bio page only to find all the changes, nearly each of which had a link to prove the veracity, stricken in less than 24 hours.

In place of my accurate edits, someone, perhaps you, reverted back to the previous entry. The first sentence is factually wrong and the second sentence repeats the ad homenim fallacy that Madsen is a "conspiracy theorist."

Whoever took down my post has replaced an accurate, objective entry with the erroneous and fallacious entry that has no place in an encyclopedia.

Whoever did this either lacks the skill or is too biased, or both, to be entrusted with making edits to Madsen's bio.

Unlike you, I sign my work with my real name: Len Bracken. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lenbracken (talkcontribs) 02:08, 28 February 2014 (UTC)


— Preceding unsigned comment added by Lenbracken (talkcontribs) 02:06, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Each page has a history button that tells who made each edit. I have replied on your talk page but will note here that you deleted a stable consensus that had been worked on by many editors over considerable time. You also deleted many, many reliable source refs. This just isn't done. I reverted the edit. Capitalismojo (talk) 02:34, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
I think that after you have made more than six edits you may have a better feeling for Wikipedia's policies and practices. You will certainly be better able to understand what constitutes appropriate editing here. Capitalismojo (talk) 02:41, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

ALEC-SPN[edit]

Check again? (Search for "sister.") --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 04:37, 10 March 2014 (UTC

Well the term does appear. It, the ref, doesn't seem to me to be either reliable for its use of the term or factually accurate. Sister organization: A company which is owned by the same parent company as another company. One parent company can have one or many subsidiaries, which all are sister companies to each other. Read more: [[5]] There is nothing in the ref, or any other ref to suggest that there is any such "sister" relationship between these two organizations. I suggest this is a controversial and poorly ref'd description. While ALEC is one of dozens of affiliate members, they have no joint creation, overlapping boards, overlapping members, nothing. They share a common ideology. That hardly makes for a "sister" organization. A better ref is necessary. Capitalismojo (talk) 14:15, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
Yes indeed, the only corroborative evidence I could find was this, which appears to me to be a misreading of its underlying source. Thanks. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 17:16, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

You didn't answer my question.
I don't believe I've indicated in any way that other policies/guidelines are completely non-applicable as is ELNO. --Ronz (talk) 15:27, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
I find that the "see also" style guidelines are abbreviated and incomplete, so abbreviated to be unhelpful. The ELNO thoughts are well considered, well known, and entirely applicable. It is up to the editor who wants to include material to justify that inclusion. ELNO makes for a great guideline to assist editors in adding that which improves an article. That's why I, and other editors, often suggest that people familiarize themselves with ELNO. It's a tool to help guide thinking about what to add to an article. Capitalismojo (talk) 14:17, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
I see your point. ELNO has a great deal on inclusion and exclusion for external links that may be helpful when considering inclusion and exclusion of information elsewhere. However, it being specific to external links doesn't give it any weight in WP:DR, as WP:ELN would never be an appropriate venue for resolving such disputes.

No. I didn't add the section. I merely restored something sourced to a reliable source ref. If you think that the Sydney Morning Herald is not reliable you can take it to WP:RS/N, if you think the ref is reliable but that the material doesn't belong in the article for other reasons, you should discuss it on talk. What you can't do is remove it as a "blog" ref because it's not. Capitalismojo (talk) 19:56, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

COI help[edit]

Thanks so much! I don't know if you already know, but a substantial amount of my contributions to Wikipedia are done in a COI capacity, where companies recruit me to bring their article up to GA. That article was a different kind of COI (I basically probably didn't even have one), but I do routinely need editors to collaborate with on articles where I have a COI in a Bright Line(ish) fashion. I was wondering if you had any interest in helping out now and then?

For example, I was just pinging a few editors looking for someone willing to take a look at these proposed edits. There is a lot of directory information and unsourced contentious material on that article. My list of proposed edits is rather intimidating and I know I will have a hard time finding someone willing to look through the wall of text. CorporateM (Talk) 23:11, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Sure. I don't mind. Glad to help. Capitalismojo (talk) 23:15, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks so much! It's hard to find editors that are willing to spend time on articles they may not have a particular interest/expertise in, so it's sort of an endless task for me to find editors that enjoy editing company pages and don't mind swooping in to new articles. CorporateM (Talk) 00:24, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Improper deletions[edit]

Re [9] please read WP:LEAD about the introduction being a summary of the article's body. Please read WP:COMPREHENSIVE on what is and is not on topic for any given article. EllenCT (talk) 05:15, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

I have replied at your talk.
Your understanding of the MOS guidance at WP:LEAD is not correct. We are not to duplicate entire paragraphs or broad swatches of the body in the lead section. It is to be a summary. Your linking to an essay does not change that.
From WP:LEAD : "The lead should be able to stand alone as a concise overview. It should define the topic, establish context, explain why the topic is notable, and summarize the most important points—including any prominent controversies."
The quote removed was a cut and paste duplication of a paragraph from the main body. That never is allowed. It is also why Ubikwit shortened the deleted paragraph and put in one sentence in its place. Sorry that you misunderstood. Capitalismojo (talk) 10:58, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
If verbatim duplication of the body in the intro is not allowed, there are a very large number of featured articles which aren't allowed. Where are you getting that from? EllenCT (talk) 04:16, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
I have posted both the wiki link and the actual language. I can't imagine that you don't understand the word "summary" in the MOS, so it seems you have come to this page to be disruptive. Please stop. Capitalismojo (talk) 15:46, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Deletion nomination of File:Stay-behind.png[edit]

You nominated File:Stay-behind.png for speedy deletion as a hoax. I have read what you wrote on the talk page, and it does look to me as though you are probably right. However, it is not so obvious and blatant a hoax that I am confident in speedily deleting it. What is more, your nomination has remained in place for a few hours short of two days. In that time, numerous administrators who patrol speedy deletion candidates must have looked at it, and the fact that not one of them has either accepted or rejected the nomination implies that they must all, like me, be rather on the fence about it. If a number of admins have all been doubtful, it is evidently not a sufficiently clear-cut enough case for speedy deletion, so I have declined the speedy deletion, and if you think it should be deleted you will need to take it to Wikipedia:Files for deletion. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 09:29, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for reviewing it. I will follow your advice. Capitalismojo (talk) 01:20, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Franklin Center[edit]

Sorry, I didn't notice that this edit summary got cut off. The full relevant language from the source is: "In 2011, fully 95 percent of the Franklin Center’s revenues came from a charity called Donors Trust, whose top contributors were the Koch brothers." --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 16:48, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

CJR is not a reliable source for Donors Trust on this matter. Donors Trust has given away $400 million plus in recent years. The biggest donations mentioned by Mother Jones (publisher of the principal investigative article on Donors Trust) talk about $2 million from the Kochs. At the very least that is UNDUE for us to suggest within the article that this is Koch money, based on one ref that is inaccurate on the facts. Capitalismojo (talk) 17:22, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Then this isn't a verification issue, it's a reliability issue. I'd have a hard time seeing CJR being deemed unreliable. If there is indeed a conflict between reliable sources then it should be reflected. If you wish to continue this discussion it should probably be on the article talk page. (I only started this thread to let you know what I meant to include in my edit summary.) --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 17:32, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Ok. Capitalismojo (talk) 17:34, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Lucy Burns Institute[edit]

Re your feeling insulted, do you have a personal connection to any of these organizations that the community should know about? --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 17:15, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

No. I have no conflict of interest of any sort whatsoever. I have more connection to you than to these organizations. I find it wrong to take a solid concerns about policy and leap to personal questions about other editors. Capitalismojo (talk) 17:21, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Ok, just checking. I was wondering why you'd feel insulted by something I wrote about an organization with which you have no connection. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 18:09, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
I clarified my remarks at talk. I believe it is an insult to women to assert or suggest that because one is married there is some sort of control over organizations the wife runs or automatic expectation that a wife is not independent. It is a general view that is wrong and sexist. Capitalismojo (talk) 20:52, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Of course you are entitled to your own opinion, though I doubt you'd find much support for it. Wikipedia policy on spousal COIs (or at least the quotation of the New York Times ethics guidelines) is a ubiquitous view ensconced in ethics rules throughout the United States at least, such as those adopted by legislatures, bar associations, and reputable news outlets. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 18:48, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
We are all entitled to our opinions here, particularly when as a matter of policy and custom we work by consensus. You have not achieved consensus on your original research and its applicability to the source in question especially related to the modest content you have proposed as being in dispute. I suggest that a footnote (one of several) that points to a NYT ethics guidelines hardly qualifies as wikipedia policy. It's effectively a "see also". Capitalismojo (talk) 21:40, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Perhaps, but the body of the policy does say that sources that have "apparent conflicts of interest" are questionable. One way or another that term has to be interpreted. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 06:24, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Which gets us to the point that the husband does not in fact run the second organization and that the supposed conflict does not even rise to the level of an "apparent conflict of interest". Capitalismojo (talk) 12:20, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Joint control is not a prerequisite for a conflict of interest. So explain to me how you get to your conclusion. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 17:52, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
It's not a question of "joint control". He has no control over, and no evidence presented shows that he has any control over, Franklin. A grant in 2009 is hardly the stuff of conflict in 2014. Absent his control over Franklin or specifically Franklin's Watchdog org, there is no conflict. I have laid out my further thoughts related to the "conflict" very clearly at RSN. Capitalismojo (talk) 20:44, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
I think we've hashed this over pretty thoroughly. Hopefully others will weigh in on the merits. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 21:17, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes, we have. :) I hope so too. Capitalismojo (talk) 00:37, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

BRD for Syrian Civil War Spillover article?[edit]

I would be happy to, but what is BRD?Ericl (talk) 20:35, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

WP:BRD or BOLD, REVERT, DISCUSS is a standard of practice and methodology commonly used here at wikipedia. It is used in order to avoid edit wars or other friction & strife. It relates to wikipedia's policy on consensus. The idea is that an editor makes a BOLD edit and (if other editors REVERT it), rather than reinserting we take it to talk to DISCUSS. Thus rather than slipping into an edit war, that gets nipped in the bud and consensus can be achieved at the talk page. Capitalismojo (talk) 20:37, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

VIPS revisited... again and again[edit]

I'm just going to see whether Galant Khan comes back in to reintroduce the coatrack crud again on Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity. As it is, he's taken his forum shopping further by posting a complaint against me on an administrator's talk page, for which he and I were handed an edit warring notification! I pinged the admin asking him to please qualify how he'd come to the conclusion that I have been edit warring on this article, but have had no response as yet.

Until I have some form of response from him, I'm reluctant to nominate it for deletion per WP:COATRACK. Either it establishes why the group are notable, or it should get the boot. Even if there are arguments for notability, I want a tight case for its being developed with their full background, memos, etc. without the tendentious use of a few convenient examples when contributors are POV-pushing the 'look, they were right in the past!' bollocks. The single example of where they were 'wrong' ("Israel did not attack Iran that month or at any time since." has been deleted (as editorialising, presumably) whereas, according to the same editor, retaining op-ed pieces from WP:BIASED sources is not considered to need WP:INTEXT attribution.

Furthermore, how do these editors justify the use of a WP:PRIMARY source in the external links? The letter to Merkel is a primary source which should not been introduced where secondary sources are available... so I'm removing it. Cheers! --Iryna Harpy (talk) 05:04, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Hello Capitalismojo, per the policy regarding publicizing RfC’s, your name was chosen from the list of editors who participate in them.

James Buckley[edit]

Hey, thanks for your removal of unreliable sources for James L. Buckley's possible membership in ALEC. I've agreed with all of your edits on this so far. (Though I'm baffled as to what's up with ALEC's "History" page... How can a large, established organization screw up the name of one of its founding members and not fix it for over three years?) In any case, what are your thoughts on the usability of this source:

--Dr. Fleischman (talk) 16:38, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

Well it's an encyclopedia ref so under wikipedia policy we are to avoid it per WP:TERTIARY, right? Is it at the ALEC page? Capitalismojo (talk) 01:08, 10 October 2014 (UTC)
Its sort of odd, screwing up their own history. I wonder if they watch the article page? Capitalismojo (talk) 01:11, 10 October 2014 (UTC)
Re WP:TERTIARY, I don't know. The policy seems awfully vague and I don't have experience with it. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 05:39, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Brett Kimberlin[edit]

Hi

Sorry, but I have reverted your revert.

If you wish it to say that, as I said in my edit summary, it really needs to be as a quote. As a quote, we are saying "such and such a person said 'it is harassment'", whereas your edit says that "it is harassment".

All it needs is quote marks (and a direct quote). Chaosdruid (talk) 00:49, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Wallace L. Hall, Jr.[edit]

Thanks for your continuing work on Wallace L. Hall, Jr.. In truth I have little interest in this article but the way it was written when I found it irked me more than most. I'll hold off with the meat cleaver until you're done with the scalpel. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 20:26, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I wasn't interested but have become so. Republican Governor appoints regent. Regent asks uncomfortable questions about improper legislative influence. Republican legislators try to quash or impeach regent. You got me hooked. Its still a mess, but getting (a bit) better. Capitalismojo (talk) 20:35, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
Definitely, you're doing a great job. In my view the right way to clean this up is to move most of the content into a new article, say University of Texas admissions controversy, that describes what's happened beyond Hall's involvement. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 21:04, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
That's a good idea. I'll start work on it.Capitalismojo (talk)

Compromise: something everyone dislikes[edit]

Capitalismojo, would you consider supporting the "alternative text" that begins "In the summer and fall of 2014, conservative websites and social media attacked Tyson's character and scientific understanding . . ." I'm not in love with it, either, but it may be the best chance to achieve a consensus compromise for inclusion. If we can arrive at a compromise at NDGT, that should also shake things loose at The Federalist article. Please consider. Regards, Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 00:51, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

Formal mediation has been requested[edit]

Edits/Thanks/Concerns[edit]

I see that you have recently extensively edited my bio page Peter Gleick. I presume this is an effort to improve formatting and accuracy, and I appreciate that. However, a number of changes, I believe, make it less accurate and I would like to offer some feedback. This is a bit complicated, given the number of changes you made, so bear with me...

1. You significantly changed/shortened the sentence that addressed the range issues I work on. It now reads: "Among the issues he has addressed are conflicts over water resources,.[2]"

Conflicts over water resources are only one, and not the most important, of the issues I have and still address. The entry used to include "the impacts of climate change on water resources, the human right to water, and the problems of the billions of people without safe, affordable, and reliable water and sanitation."

Each of these topics is extensively addressed in my peer-reviewed publications, my public writings, and my speeches/lectures. I strongly ask you to replace these (i.e., "the impacts of climate change on water resources, the human right to water, and the problems of the billions of people without safe, affordable, and reliable water and sanitation."). Otherwise as it reads now, it gives a very (too) narrow and misleading summary of my work. My CV, which is referenced, mentions these, but if you need further citations, a partial list of my peer-reviewed publications can be found here: http://www.gleick.com/journal-articles.html.

2. You removed a sentence describing the award of the first US Water Prize, and your justification was it is "non-notable"?

and that same year he and the Pacific Institute were awarded the first U.S. Water Prize.[1]

This seems subjective on your part. The US Water Prize is considered a prestigious award in the water world, given by a national organization. I ask you to reinstate this text in the intro, and certainly in the Career section.

3.You similarly removed from the opening and the Career section this same honor, along with the reference to the 2012 Oxford Amnesty Lecture. This is also a prestigious lecture at Oxford University. I request you reinstate that as well, at a minimum in the Career section if not the intro. I see that there was redundancy here. Thank you for removing it, but please do not completely remove reference to these honors.

4. And just a thought, if you're focused on removing redundancy: The last paragraph of the first section (starting "In February 2012") is also redundant with the entire section below. If your goal is to remove excess and repetitive text, feel free to remove this paragraph from the intro.

PGleick (talk) 22:59, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your comments. We have no ref's that state that the water award is notable, nor do we have any RS refs saying the Oxford speech is notable or that it is considered an honor worthy of inclusion. I shall search again for such reliable source refs on your behalf. As regards the variety of your areas of focus, we don't rely and can't rely on "SPS" (self published sources). Your CV is the ultimate SPS as such things go. It read like a resume not a biographical article. We'd have to find a newspaper/media article saying something similar in order to use it. Capitalismojo (talk) 23:34, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Hmm. This seems a bit like an unfair level of citation. Everyone sort of assumes that the Nobel Prize is "notable" but what source is appropriate to cite for that. (Not that I'm equating the US Water Prize with the Nobel, but it is a big honor to get it.)

The Oxford Amnesty Lectures are highly regarded. Books of these lectures are regularly produced. Various references cite them: http://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/49483/francis-fukuyama/on-human-rights-the-oxford-amnesty-lectures-1993. They are published by Oxford University Press: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/category/academic/series/politics/oal.do Here is a citation explicitly about my lecture: http://www.law.ox.ac.uk/event=11735

As for my "areas of focus" -- this hardly seems necessary to have sources for. My peer-reviewed publications cover ALL of the topics that you deleted. My election to the US National Academy was not based on "conflicts over water" but the whole scope of my work. If you want to find newspaper articles that say this, you could cite The New Yorker article by Michael Spectre, which describes my work: http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2006/10/23/the-last-drop-2 He describes my work as "Gleick, who is forty-nine, has studied the connections between water, development, and human health for nearly three decades."

Or

The story in Los Angeles Times Magazine "Visionary" that describes my work on water efficiency, water management, water and climate change, and water and conflict. Here is the citation: http://www.latimesmagazine.com/2010/01/visionary.html

PGleick (talk) 00:15, 15 February 2015 (UTC)


BTW, here is an article describing the US Water Prize (for 2014), at which the USEPA Administrator and the Deputy Secretary of the Interior spoke, at the National Geographic Society. http://www.wateronline.com/doc/epa-administrator-congratulates-u-s-water-prize-winners-0001. PGleick (talk) 00:22, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Please see my response from a couple of days ago, and request to revert background summary, topics, expertise. PGleick (talk) 22:05, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

I find the Water award insufficiently notable. I see little indication that giving the lecture is an honor or that it should be included in this article, but perhaps other editors could find more support. The LA Times is a classic "puff piece" but I think it might be used to add something on "conflict" etc. I suggest you go to the article talk page and share what you think should be included in your biography. That way other editors can weigh in. Capitalismojo (talk) 22:15, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Thats's absurd. Truly absurd. People won't have access to the internet? For an online encyclopedia. That's your justification for creating an entirely new way of displaying/describing media companies in articles. It doesn't wash.

No consensus[edit]

I find it extremely irritating when editors revert with the "no consensus" summary. It directly contravenes WP:BOLD. And mass reversion of a whole series of edits under this rubric is even worse. How do you expect him to respond? I know Hugh can be really irritating and disruptive, but some of his edits were actually pretty reasonable, and you owe it to him to explain why you disagree with him. Plus, we really don't need to be stoking his battle rage any more than necessary. Just my two cents. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 18:49, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Re: your recent edit to Sabrina Erdely[edit]

This edit added a bare URL instead of a complete citation. I know you're a long-time and regular contributor to Wikipedia, so you know how helpful it is when citations are complete. Complete citations help guard against the dreaded link rot (yeah I know, the *horror*), and also make it easier for readers to verify information. If you were a younger editor (in terms of number of edits), I'd place {{subst:User:Shearonink/ref}} on your talk page but you're a regular and, so, that would be rude. Anyway, maybe make your cites complete in the future - Thanks. Shearonink (talk) 17:13, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

Brian Day article[edit]

Just a thank you for helping keep the Brian Day article free from one-sided edits and working to keep it balanced so it is not a puff piece. This court case (heated in Canada) will resume in the fall and I wouldn't be surprised to see 'either' side of the debate try to use this page to sway public opinion. It would be good to keep an eye on it (as I will try to do -- but I'm only an infrequent contributor).

Brian Day article again[edit]

Can you pop over to the Brian Day article again? Someone with a vested interest is tampering with it it seems. My edits (all carefully weighted to represent 'both sides') have been tampered with and removed. They have been replaced with statements like this:

"The British Columbia Medical Services Commission accepted an invitation by Day to conduct an audit of Cambie Surgeries Corporation, where Day is one of 50 shareholders."

According to all media and legal documents, there was no such 'invitation' but Day fought in the courts to prevent such an audit.

Other statements like:

"They confirmed that the clinic, along with another clinic, had allowed patients to pay facility fees for services that were not being provided in a timely manner by the government system."

What the legal and news accounts actually say is that the clinic broke the law in charging such fees, and demanded the clinics stop charging the fees. Day is now challenging this law in court.

You can see how contentious the case is for both sides fighting. But the facts are clear and need to be reestablished for this article. The opinion (whether someone thinks Day is a hero or a villain for challenging the law) is not the issue -- but the person making the edits is clearly on the 'hero' side and keeps slanting the article in that fashion -- even overriding clear facts. My edits tried to show was 'proponents' and 'critics' each say and state the facts clearly as outlined in the legal documents and media.

I can make edits again, but this is getting laborious -- and this is clearly biased and not factually correct.

Can I ask for your help in either reverting to my previous edits? Or if I make edits again to make it factual, can we protect my edits in some way? This is starting to feel like whack-a-mole.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

If you wish to engage in WP:BRD, you are obligated to participate in discussion. May I respectfully request please avoid "drive-by" deletions of contributions from your colleagues of noteworthy significant content and reliable source references WP:DRNC. The "same material" is not being inserted in multiple articles, just the same source, which I understand you do not like. Thank you in advance. Hugh (talk) 15:09, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

Well, as I have been on wikipedia for many years and have not pursued any such blacklist I am afraid I will have to demur. You however have added material from and a ref to an inappropriate opinion piece from Mother Jones to a (almost) dozen articles after not achieving consensus at the first such. You were warned by another editor about that. You have edit warred to achieve the additions. Since you have been blocked and topic banned for behavior in this vein I think I will not take this advice. Capitalismojo (talk) 16:45, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
