List of cults[edit]

In List of groups referred to as cults, one of the restrictions excludes, "fancult of popular culture". "Rae Chorze-Fwaz/Rama" appears to be such a fancult, and so I have removed it. If you'd like to make a case that it isn't then we'd all listen. talk:List of groups referred to as cults. Cheers, -Will Beback 08:37, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

On furhter reflection, it doesn't quite seem like a fancult. I've re-instated the entry. Cheers, -Will Beback 08:41, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
I'm glad you have added it back in. Although Rama wrote a couple of books, and certainly his students might be described as fans of his books, the primary contact between Rama and his students was through his (sometimes controversial) spiritual teachings--not his books or other materials. A fan of JK Rowling, for example, might create a fancult around Rowling--but Rowling is primarily an author who might occasionally give a talk about her books. Rama, by contrast, was primarily a spiritual teacher (albeit controversial at times) who from time to time wrote books and composed music to support his spiritual teaching. The relationship between Rama and his students was similar to that between, say, Sai Baba and his students--and not at all like the relationship that might exist between a JK Rowling or a Stephen King and their fans. --Dash77 09:12, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Template:WAS[edit]

I had to restore the old date as I don't have the current WAS. We get the CFS updates but not the WAS. So all/most of the water aerodromes in Canada are based on the older version. Enter CBW, waits for audience applause, not a sausage. 16:44, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

Copy & paste moves[edit]

Please don't try to move articles this way again. It detaches an article from its creation history. Timrollpickering (talk) 17:26, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Please don't template the regulars. 117Avenue (talk) 20:00, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Fair enough, although out of respect for the fact that you are a regular here, I didn't just post the template and leave it at that, but provided some additional text explaining my position.Dash77 (talk) 20:23, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

You have received a reply[edit]

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:H-1B_visa&diff=666170512&oldid=666169249 10 years late, to be sure. User:Fred Bauder Talk 11:14, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

Yes, as you've noted, my edits to H-1B visa and my concerns about its neutrality are from nearly 10 years ago. I believe my concerns were fairly narrow in scope and regarded certain specifics of immigration conditions from 10 years ago that may or may not still be relevant 10 years later. I noticed that you've made a fair number of recent edits to the H-1B visa page and its talk page--the scope of those comments seems considerably wider than my neutrality dispute was intended to address.

Berbick[edit]

I agree that I shouldn't have reverted your edits and listed him as a Canadian under "Nationality". As a Canadian, I personally consider anyone who is a permanent resident (or landed immigrant) and has lived in Canada for a large portion of their life, a Canadian. Obviously, I didn't take citizenship into consideration, but I should have. I will revert the edit now. Blackjays1 (talk) 20:32, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

Your edit to the Rape article[edit]

Your source was terrible. I am admitting my total lack of neutrality on this topic, but using a popular science article that was taken from another publication, dependent on blog posts, and referencing dead links does not make even a bad reference. I am a nice person and I am not leaving a message here on your talk page to beat you up, you look like a great editor who adds good content. You have to realize what a contentious article you edited-it has hundreds of page watchers, who obviously were all sleeping when you made your contribution. So keep up the good work, but use better referencing. Best Regards,

Barbara (WVS) (talk) 13:21, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
As you yourself note, I think it is important to approach this from a neutral point of view, as difficult as that may be when the article is about a controversial subject. I noticed that you described the content as "nauseating" in the main edit (revert) that you made to the page itself. The fact that the content is disturbing to you, however, isn't a reason to revert the edit if the content is properly referenced. I will admit that the Popular Science article was not a good reference, because it did indeed depend on blog posts and dead links. However, the Popular Science article does include some references to much more scholarly articles with very similar content. The links may be dead, but it won't take much effort for me to find active links to the scholarly articles with this content. I plan to give this a day or so to give you a chance to respond, and then to restore this content (or very similar content) with better references. I recognize that the content is disturbing and controversial but that is not a reason to avoid it if it can be properly referenced. Moreover, if we are going to remove this content purely because we find the content disturbing, then the previous sentence (which I note you left in) regarding similar physical responses by male survivors should also be deleted for the sake of neutrality. I would question the reference on that one, actually, because a journal on obstetrics and gynecology seems a questionable source for information about male survivors. It is a disturbing subject, but if we are going to discuss it for male survivors, we need to do so for female survivors as well. So in sum--yes, my reference was questionable but there are good references out there for this subject, so it won't be possible to dismiss this purely on the grounds of it being disturbing content.Dash77 (talk) 16:37, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
