Manzetti[edit]

Deke, I'm troubled that the manzetti page is utterly invariant with huge chunks of http://www.esanet.it/chez_basilio/manzetti.htm and is thus a copyvio problem.

Ooops. I forgot about that. I was unable to locate anything in print in English, so I intended to ask my sister to do a library search for me (She works in one...), then I got into a squit with some guy who deleted some other subject before I'd finished it and went off for a sulk. I didn't orignally overinvest in that one website, I used about 6, but that was the only one in English so I used it for all my 'confirmation calls', which means it probably was responsible for over half of the content. I do remember ripping off the intro and, I think, the outro, and thinking I must do something about that when I finally got my hands on something in print. My sister and I are both off (Independently) sick at the moment but I'll give her a ring tomorrow.Deke42 21:53, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
This is getting ridiculous. I've just searched the entire Oxford University library and the Bodleian pre-1920 catalogues and they have nothing. I'm starting to think Manzetti is a giant hoax. I certainly think it might be a good idea to remove the whole page until someone can find something in hardcopy. Deke42 21:32, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Simfy, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Jango. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
