Olive branch[edit]

Dear Dave, I've deconstructed your newspaper search - again. Please don't take this personally. I don't feel too strong about the result of the RM (although I do prefer the short version), and I certainly don't want to pick on you. This latest error was something that can easily happen, and could have happened to me, too. Indeed, when I first tried my queries, I put a space between the "-" and the search term ("Hillary Rodham Clinton" - "Hillary Clinton", and got only 5540 hits (which would have made a very strong case for the move). Luckily, I found the error before I hit "save page" - that wrong result has a certain "smell" that made me double-check. These issues are subtle, and easy to get wrong. --Stephan Schulz (talk) 20:45, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

  • @Stephan Schulz: I've responded on the RM page. But just to reiterate my explanation there, I did the "Hillary Rodham Clinton" comparative "Hillary Clinton" -Rodham search on purpose, and my reason being that I'm not trying to claim that HRC is never referred to as HC. She is. But in many sources it's for brevity and only in the headlines. Sometimes they use both, but in most sources, the vast majority, from 1983-2003, she is referred to as 'Hillary Rodham Clinton'. Thanks for the polite inquiry.

Ok. Sorry to assume a mistake when you did it on purpose. I thing we already exchanged our different interpretations of WP:COMMONNAME. Anyways, have a good weekend - it's past midnight here in Old Europe, and I'll try to turn in for tonight. --Stephan Schulz (talk) 22:32, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
  • No problem @Stephan Schulz:, you have a good weekend too. I have friends in 'Old Europe', specifically in Germany. I also do ancestry research and large portions of my family are from Germany. Good night. Dave Dial (talk) 23:11, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Frankfurt School[edit]

Just letting you know that user causing trouble on the Frankfurt School talk page has deleted your comment. --Jobrot (talk) 07:21, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

I'm willing not to fight over the comment, but honestly, if you really believe I'm someone's sock puppet (though I can't imagine whose) and acting in bad faith, please either argue with the points I've made or report me. I've done nothing wrong here by wiki standards or really any standards. If you want to help with the page, I hope we can work together. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Second Dark (talkcontribs) 04:18, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

Hillary Rodham Clinton[edit]

She'll always been known as such to those who are actually knowledgeable in this area, but really, the battle has been lost; the RM finding kinda gives the "HC" crowd the leg up on dropping Rodham from the infobox and other places in the article. You know how I love to fight more than any around here, but the sooner we can get the RM Zealots to shimmy on down to their next centre/center aluminum/aluminium fight, the better.

  • Yea, you're right. I told myself to just let the fanatics have their uneducated 'win', move on and not fight about this absolutely silly stuff. It doesn't really matter anywho. Thanks. Dave Dial (talk) 19:33, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
