Thanks[edit]

I've been fighting a long, lonely battle against tax protesters ever since I created that article. Your input is much appreciated. BD2412 T 02:44, 19 November 2005 (UTC)


More Thanks[edit]

Thanks. Your 23 Nov 2005 edit in the Tax protester page (removing the stuff about section 6020) makes things better. I didn't have the heart to point out that section 6020 does not even deal with IRS employees' authority to impose penalties or fines. Stare 22:52, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

Homeopathy[edit]

Thanks for your contribution to this page. I don't want to give the impression of defensiveness, so thought I'd explain my POV revert. Firstly, this page is held in tension between two fundamentally opposed groups of editors, so please be careful - edit wars are a pain and do not increase quality. The specific problems were

  • Homeopathic medicine, as currently practiced, contains many aspects of pseudoscience. - Needs citation and possibly re-writing to Most scientists and doctors think homeopathic medicine....
  • When an effect tends to disappear as studies become more controlled... - needs a citation
  • The general consensus among scientists and medical doctors is that homeopathic treatments often provide no benefit whatsoever beyond the placebo effect - Needs a citation and please, no bold text. One side of opinion uses bold, then the other uses red, bold, then the other uses red, caps, bold. Not pretty! TimVickers 14:28, 16 September 2006 (UTC)
Thank you for your comments; I agree that much of what I wrote probably needs to be reworked to be more NPOV. CronoDAS 16:31, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi CronoDAS - please see Talk:Homeopathy regarding categorization. Thanks! Jim Butler(talk) 00:39, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Kreia[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

An editor has nominated Kreia, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Kreia and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 03:29, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Lachlan Crompton syndrome[edit]

You're right, it's a hoax, probably intended as an attack page. There are no hits for it in Books or Scholar or MedInfo, the Science Daily article linked as "mentioning Lachlan Crompton syndrome" doesn't mention it, and none of the links to medical databases in the infobox does, either. I wish some of the users who have tidied it up and corrected spelling etc. had thought to make a check or two - these long-running hoaxes are very damaging. Well spotted, thanks; I have zapped it.

POV Electrical Muscle Stimulation[edit]

I've seen you added the article Electrical Muscle Stimulation to the list of those proposed for POV check. I made an entry in the article's talk page, but nobody seems either interested to debate or further dispute my entry. Before going ahead and removing the POV-check tag I wanted to double check with you.--Gciriani (talk) 18:09, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Go ahead, it looks much better now. I flagged it because I had read that the various "ab toner" devices that I saw ads for on TV basically didn't work, and the article now says that they burn minimal calories and the FDA doesn't approve them for weight loss.
