January 2013[edit]

Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Drew Barrymore, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you.

Blocked for sockpuppetry[edit]

This is rather old, but I doubt it was in error. I was sharing a computer with several other persons at the time the "sockpuppetry" occurred. The sharing has ceased.

Unsourced and unreliably sourced edits[edit]

I'm highly skeptical of your edits to Martha Rofheart and have reverted quite a large part of them. You haven't provided any source for her son's job, and even if you had, it's debatable whether it belonged into her article. For the plagiarism the only "sources" are a letter to the Times Literary Supplement, I believe, and a random blog on the internet. Those aren't reliable sources. If there are truly reliable sources for these claims, please present them; otherwise unsubstantiated rumor does not belong in an encyclopedia article. Regarding the son there are even BLP issues.

RESPONSE TO THE FOREGOING:

      With due respect, I beg to differ. The facts remain that Martha Rofheart plagiarised A.M. Maughan's novel Harry of Monmouth, John Cowper Powys's novel Owen Glendower, and Harold F. Hutchinson's Henry V: A Biography. More sources exist than a mere "letter to the Times Literary Supplement", though that letter, dated 4th January 2008, from Professor David A Cook of the University of North Carolina, which set forth his correspondence with the Powys Estate's London agent, Pollinger Ltd, and their futile protest against author Rofheart's much more formidable publisher, is hardly unreliable. One need only the two novels and compare them; even several respected contemporary authors have noted the plagiarism. But, as Pollinger Ltd suggested in their response to Dr Cook, principles fare poorly in an exchange between a small British literary agency and a corporate publishing house with large financial resources, as happened in the matter of the Rofheart plagiarism. It should be noted that Putnam dropped Rofheart as soon as the matter was concluded.
