Request from disruptive editor[edit]

Please stay off my talk page in the future, thanks. Magnacartalibertatum (talk) 20:17, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

Stop removing sourced content and inserting repetitive and unnecessary wording. Use the Talk page for changes. Dave Dial (talk) 20:24, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

I guess it is too late now[edit]

I was hoping you could give him a chance to respond, before opening that discussion. It is a more friendly approach. Anyways I was trying to restore a history concept, but after your link from I wish I never got involved. Regardless, I still believe we have two topics here, but I think the article was fine where was. Even though I voted for the move, I thought there was a consensus against its move.

Yea Valoem, I'm about to forget the page exists pretty soon. Might be too much drama for me. I just got back from a long break a month or two ago. I think I'll occasionally edit controversial articles, but maybe not delve too far into them. I think things are going to get worse on that article, much like the Trump article(which I mostly stay away from too). Good luck! Dave Dial (talk) 21:55, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

None taken[edit]

I just wanted to point out how common it was. That was one year's worth. There are many more years.Carptrash (talk) 05:10, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

Yep, I know. Frustrating for sure. Dave Dial (talk) 05:14, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
When I saw your user name I thought of Dave Diles and wondered if you were from Detroit. Then I spotted the Pistons on your user page. Carptrash (talk) 05:15, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
You must be from around Detroit to remember him, as I do. No relation or anything like that, although I did cover the Pistons for a hot minute blogging for MLive. Dave Dial (talk) 16:10, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
