Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. The following links will help you begin editing on Wikipedia:

Please bear these points in mind while editing Wikipedia:

  • Please respect others' copyrights; do not copy and paste the contents from webpages directly.
  • Please use a neutral point of view when editing articles; this is possibly the most important Wikipedia policy.
  • If you are testing, please use the Sandbox to do so.
  • Do not add unreasonable contents into any articles, such as: copyrighted text, advertisement messages, and text that is not related to an article's subject. Adding such unreasonable information or otherwise editing articles maliciously is considered vandalism, and will result in your account being blocked.

The Wikipedia Tutorial is a good place to start learning about Wikipedia. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page. By the way, you can sign your name on Talk and vote pages using three tildes, like this: ~~~. Four tildes (~~~~) produces your name and the current date. Again, welcome! —Kf4bdy talk contribs

Hi, I notice that you're interested in Irreducible complexity and the question of the relationship of intelligent design to creationism. You'll find more information on the question in that ID article and in s:Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District/2:Context: it's also worth reading the rest of the judgement, particularly s:Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District/4:Whether ID Is Science.
As for the wording of the articles, we have to comply with Wikipedia's Neutral Point of View policy (WP:NPOV). The sections of the WP:NPOV that apply particularly to these articles are:
The contributors to the articles continually strive to adhere to these to the letter. .. dave souza, talk 21:31, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of List of iconic smokers[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on List of iconic smokers, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia per CSD g1.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as an appropriate article, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is appropriate, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the article and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag) and leave a note on the page's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. Liquidfinale (Ţ) (Ç) (Ŵ) 20:35, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

On Semites and antisemitism[edit]

Courtesy notice of mention at ArbComm[edit]

I have mentioned your username in evidence presented at Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Matthew Hoffman/Evidence. Your contributions were mentioned to provide context prior to the central events of the case. GRBerry 00:44, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Liberal Eugenics[edit]

I've improved the Liberal eugenics article. Any comments? --Loremaster (talk) 02:06, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Check the sources before tagging[edit]

I've removed your {dubious} tags ([1]) from the breast cancer article. Both statements were supported by footnotes from reputable, reliable sources (the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, and Cancer Research UK).

I'm not even sure what you found dubious about the statements—breast cancer in men is rarer than in women, but still represents about 1% of all breast cancer cases. If you have specific concerns, please review the footnoted material and discuss your questions on the article talk page. TenOfAllTrades(talk) 16:11, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Yes, they do. Just look at the footnotes before you tag next time, m'kay? TenOfAllTrades(talk) 13:08, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
Please don't email me further until you look at the article footnotes. If you can't be bothered to read the linked articles, you can at least read the titles. TenOfAllTrades(talk) 16:16, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Incidentally, after a look at some of your other recent contributions, I'm quite worried about your use of {dubious} tags in general. Perhaps you ought to use some different tools for a while. Questioning whether or not nicotine is addictive ([2]) hasn't been a defensible position for some decades, and the statements are well-supported by high-quality references in the same paragraph. TenOfAllTrades(talk) 16:26, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Please don't email me further; I don't really need diatribes about post-modernistic breakdown of centralized meaning in my inbox. Any communication you wish to have with me from now on can take place on-wiki. And please do read breast, since you seem to be unclear on what a breast is.

Your past commentary suggests you'd have more insight you might like to share respecting Pandeism. If so please do so. Pandeist (talk) 06:00, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 02:45, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
