About David Sarnoff[edit]

Hi, You've erased my edit concerning Sarnoff nationality a couple of times now,and I'll kindly ask you to stop doing so.I find your remarks irrelevant to the topic as the nationality is determined by the place of birth of the person and nothing else.If you continue deleting my edits on the topic,I will too return the favor.Thank you.

Reverting anon harasser's edit on my talk page[edit]

Thanks for the help. --Eaglestorm (talk) 05:03, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Not a problem, though I personally think I deserve a barnstar as well...I've reverted vandalism many, many times, but nobody thanks me! T_T. DaL33T (talk) 17:24, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

You must have misunderstood my alterations to the page. I was simply giving a more factual representation of the educational establishment, as well as writing details of forthcoming events. How is this vandalism?

Removed speedy deletion tag: New wikipedia[edit]

Hi DaL33T! Firstly, thanks for helping out in CSD areas. I just wanted to inform you that I removed the speedy deletion tag you placed on New wikipedia- because: the page is not nonsense - there is meaningful content. If you have any questions or other message, please contact me. Thanks Kingpin13 (talk) 15:16, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

I was just in the process of remarking this for deletion under A7, and it may also meet G11, and A1. But the page is not nonsense. Please study WP:PN and WP:CSD. Nonsense refers to a random string of characters/words. Which this page was not. But keep up the new page patrol! I saw a good tag from you a few seconds before. Just make sure you don't bite newbs. Best, - Kingpin13 (talk) 15:19, 3 October 2009 (UTC)
I just happened to hit the nonsense criteria option by accident, (I use Twinkle for my anti-vandal work) that's all. DaL33T (talk) 15:22, 3 October 2009 (UTC)
Great, that explains it then :) - Kingpin13 (talk) 15:29, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Can I have that?[edit]

I really like the template you used at User talk:Anthraxlawl but it dosen't seem to exist on the WP:Vandalism page. Where can I grab it? Nezzadar (talk) 15:32, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

You can get all the templates here. The one you're after is here. Be warned, that YOU SHOULD ONLY USE THIS WHEN IT IS REALLY NECESSARY. BTW, every anti-vandal template comes included with Twinkle, an anti-vandalism plug-in that I use. You can get that as well, and I'd strongly recommend it. DaL33T (talk) 15:40, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Article: Germany[edit]

Pardon me, but I do not understand why you reverted my changes. Unfortunately the article makes wrong statement, which I corrected. There are a lot of states in Germany, where a student wishing to attend a Gymnasium does not need a Lehrerempfehlung. Also it is not true a Gymnasium enrolls "gifted" students. Also the Gesamtschule is not the fourt type of school but one of two types of school in the states of Hamburg and Berlin.--Greatgreenwhale (talk) 00:02, 31 December 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Greatgreenwhale (talkcontribs)

Sorry, I was tired when I was reverting it. I was doing a lot of reverting that time. DaL33T (talk) 20:17, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Accusations of vandalism[edit]

Thank you for taking an active interest in the Glenmere mansion page and the edit warring that has been going on there. However, you posted a vandalism warning on the IP user's page. According to WP:VANDAL, "edits/reverts over a content dispute are never vandalism". You may wish to retract that warning, as well as your request that he prove that he's the owner of the mansion, as being owner would not give him usable authority here (that he claims he's owner already gives him a conflict of interest.) - Nat Gertler (talk) 14:46, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Death (metal band)[edit]

The vandal attacked me personally with the edit, therefore I stated the obvious: it was vandalism by a dickwad. Best, A Sniper (talk) 20:22, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

I s'pose, but it's still against the rules to do that... DaL33T (talk) 20:26, 16 February 2010 (UTC)
Whatever you say. A Sniper (talk) 20:45, 16 February 2010 (UTC)


For the revert. Cheers. -Reconsider! 11:36, 12 March 2010 (UTC)


Dude, the entire section has been tagged as having unsourced "facts" for three months. If nobody has been able to find a reliable source in that time, then they probably don't exist. Just curious, did you even bother to look at the article before slapping a warning on me with an automated tool? -- (talk) 20:36, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

You're supposed to put a note on the talk page before you do that. But you are right, I was a bit hasty in reverting that. I happened to be reverting a lot of vandalism at the time. DaL33T (talk) 20:40, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Hank j wimbleton[edit]

I declined the speedy deletion as I found G-hits for this. I think it would take an AFD to sift the potential sourcing and determine what notability there is, if any. Cheers, Dlohcierekim 21:03, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

No vandalism[edit]

This was not reverting vandalism. My previous edit was reverting vandalism by the user Sinharib, whose edits have consistently been identified by all involved at Assyria as vandalism and fringe POV pushing. I'm not sure how you "identified" my edit as vandalism, but you were wrong. Sorry, but you should be a bit more careful about "identifying" vandalism. Cheers. (Taivo (talk) 04:20, 29 March 2010 (UTC))

I apologise for that. I was reverting quite abit of vandalism at the time, and I automatically push the Rollback (Vandalism) button (I use twinkle in my vandal-fighting) most of the time. That, and it's 12:20am here. Once again, I apologise, and good morning- er, night. DaL33T (talk) 04:23, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Edit of Road Fighter page[edit]

DaL33T, I've deleted the critical reception section because the information presented there was in my opinion, unconstructive and basically irrelevant. It contained nothing but a link to meanmachinesmag 's review of the NES port (giving it a 9% rating), while the page is generally about the game.

Please, do check the article before accusing people of actions such as vandalism. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:40, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Lady Gaga PROD[edit]

Hi, I have removed your PROD template on the duplicate article. If you agreed with the IP that the article was indeed a duplicate why didn't you undo your edit and restore to a redirect? Also, why did you call a non-malicious redirect "vandalism"? Using Twinkle is not an excuse. It is merely a tool to assist in the mechanics of the process, you are still expected to consider carefully each action before making it. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 22:14, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Return of Mittens[edit]

Hi. I just wanted to ask about your revert at User:Return of Mittens. This user, who has been blocked since January 2010, has fraudulently placed some of the highest service stars on his page — a page which, incidentally, has been dormant for over a year. Allowing this blocked person and this long-dormant page to continue displaying service recognition that many, many other Wikipedians have worked hard to achieve makes a mockery of the service awards.

Obviously, one's user page is generally left alone by other editors. In this instance, leaving these fraudulent claims to stand does a disservice to those who've earned these stars. If you've ever been in military service, I'm sure you'd understand. --Tenebrae (talk) 13:06, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

That was quick. Thanks! --Tenebrae (talk) 13:09, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Moron page[edit]

I see what you mean. I'll keep it in mind. (talk) 18:55, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Apologies if I offended. I am actually Irish/Catholic and found most of the "facts" to be inaccuarte and misleading. The best way for people to learn is to question EVERY "turn". If the article is re-written, not only will you learn even more but others as well. And it's not really YOUR information that's bias, it's your sources information. I found most of it to be ridiculing the Church. The article seemed more about making the claim that Catholic's religous freedoms and beliefs aren't to be upheld by the constitution of America i.e. The Presidency, ergo The Church has no "real" claim against the Health care reform... and also like I mentioned about the Irish did not migrate willingly to the States ( at least not at first ) but were taken as slaves and even remained slaves after slavery was abolished and was even more harsh than the African Slave trade ( which was happening at the same time as well )

Again, I wasn't trying to be a vandal and I apologize if you don't agree with my actions. And maybe it was a bit hasty to rid of the entire article. I shall be more considerate next time. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Text Books Lie (talkcontribs) 15:05, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

It's okay, it's okay. It's just that, for edits like that, you should probably discuss such matters at the talk page. I understand now. DaL33T (talk) 16:33, 21 June 2012 (UTC)


Don't stick templates on my talk page telling me not to revert without an editnote and then quote my editnote. Makes you look like someone who posts templates without knowing what they say. Kevin McE (talk) 14:55, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Last warning[edit]

I was never given a non-last warning before... (talk) 20:21, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

Also, it seems like now I can't edit the article OR the talk... (talk) 20:23, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

My apologies. I guess I was too harsh. Also, that's strange that you're unable to do aren't blocked, obviously, otherwise you wouldn't be talking to me right now. You'd have to ask an admin about that, because I don't know.
No problem. I guess I did change some parts of the page that I shouldn't have before discussing it on the talk page. 3930K (talk) 20:33, 15 September 2012 (UTC)


Well, I was bored, and vandalised the Yo page, which you promptly reverted. I wont let it happen again. Useryyj1 (talk) 20:45, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

Nice Cup of Tea.jpg

Thank you for the edits you made to my talkpage. Much appreciated. Have a nice cup of tea on me. Green Giant (talk) 18:00, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Very much welcome, and I apologize for this late reply (Damn Regents exams...) DaL33T (talk) 18:42, 17 June 2013 (UTC)


I am sick of it. I am an old woman, and I am seeing all the headway that females made in the 1970s going backwards. Sexist attitudes are spinning out of control. The BBC recognises that a casual comment that likens a black sportsman to a child's toy is bad form. But they are incapable of recognising that likening a young white female to a Barbie Doll is equally bad form.

I don't know what is happening to the attitudes of the young. Even homosexual people (despite legislation) are suffering from far greater discrimination than they were forty years ago. It is sickening! When people write captions of that sort, I wonder what happened to all the education programs that we set in place and all the books we wrote, placards we carried, and governments we picketted. Amandajm (talk) 13:08, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Unless the editor is ninety-nine and senile, they should know better. That attitude affects round-about 50% of people on this planet. Think about it in female terms.
This is a person, presumably male, who needs to draw a distinction between a guitarist (think man) and a guitarist who doesn't have testicles.
That attitude discriminates against 50% of humanity.
If this editor gets a rude shock from my message, then they desperately need it, regardless of whether the writer is 13 or 50.
Sexism is not appropriate on Wikipedia or anywhere else.
And I am sorry to say that it is regaining ground, rapidly. Amandajm (talk) 13:17, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
It is also not appropriate to make personal attacks, regardless of your convictions. DaL33T (talk) 13:20, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Higglytown Heroes[edit]

Hello, I saw that you quickly reverted my edit about Higglytown Heroes. I was one of the first editors who updated the episode guide through its original run and kept it up. I recently checked up on the page after a couple of years and noted that there was a bit of vandalism in the episode guide that was not reverted. (Roseanne Barr as Twinkle's mom? influx of British Harry Potter actresses?) I was merely cleaning up the episode guide taking out any extraneous and incorrect actors attributed to certain episodes. If you do not believe me, please check out IMDB, or other episode guides to see that this is a valid edit and not just vandalism. I have seen this type of thing happen on Wikipedia pages for children's TV shows. I will revert the edit, but if there is anything else, please let me know on my talk page. (talk) 16:20, 25 April 2014 (UTC)samusek2

I apologize for my mistake. Also, sorry for any rude remarks I may have made the warning I sent you. Feel free to restore your changes. DaL33T (talk) 16:23, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Fields Medal page[edit]

Hello there,I'm that user who's been the victim of editing the Fields Medal page(i.e.I got blocked with charge of Vandalism.).I've got two question:1)When the current protected status of that page ends,Does the page current contents remain in place or they are replaced with the old version? 2)I've prepared a new and somehow comprehensive table about Fields medalists.I posted this table on the discussion section of the Fields Medal page,and I request for comments about this(If You come there and see my that table I will be really glad,and don't forget to put your comment about it down there!;-)),but so far,just one person did so.Is it normal? 3)Should I submit a request for edit to replace the new table with current one?Or should I wait for reaching a consensus?Thank You.

Peacock terms[edit]

I have left you a full explanation on the Leonardo da Vinci talk page. Basically, terms like "most famous" are not peacock terms if they are true beyond question.
