Hey, responding to your inquiry about UAA. I didn't see that the company actually had Limited in their name, which I just saw by reviewing the link to their website. With that info, I've just now blocked the account. Let me know if you have any other questions, ceranthor 01:41, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

Oh, that's great Ceranthor, thank you very much for the clarification! Like I said over there, it wasn't about any specific beef with this company – far from it – but just about trying to understand the process, so your comment is a great help. Cheers DBaK (talk) 08:07, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
Hi @Ceranthor:, I just looked at the outcome of this (your discussion with DBaK happened after I'd logged off for the night). Sorry I didn't make it clear that the company had Ltd at the end of their name; that's almost always the case for UK-registered companies (even if they don't use the suffix in their marketing), so I thought it would have been obvious, but I'll be more explicit in future. Thanks DBaK for querying this. GirthSummit (blether) 08:14, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
No worries - I'm from the US so less familiar with that. Cheers, ceranthor 13:36, 4 December 2018 (UTC)


Thank you for you share to RSPB Minsmere, mentioned in the nice intro "I'd long wanted to write an FA on this flagship RSPB reserve, but lacked sufficient sources. The site celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2017, leading to the publication of a major article in British Birds which, together with Bert Axell's book, purchased for the princely sum of 98p, gave me all that was necessary. Thanks to DisillusionedBitterAndKnackered for for fixing some of my less felicitous edits."! Will sing Jauchzet, frohlocket on Saturday!! Here. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:36, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

Thank you! DBaK (talk) 13:44, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

You are invited to listen today to the Pauken and Trompeten, DYK? Tönet, ihr Pauken!, which they shall do ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:30, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

Oh great, how gorgeous, thanks! DBaK (talk) 13:44, 8 December 2018 (UTC)


Comments too boring to put at the FAC ... I'm sorry I was late to this and that my comments are a bit woolly and rushed. I was going to try to do a thorough job but I have come to realize that death or senility would claim me before I finished it, so then I wasn't going to bother, and then I changed my mind again but still didn't have any more time so I've just ended up kind of hurling it all at the wall and hoping for the best. I've little confidence that all or most of my comments are correct or useful but I hoped that one or two might turn out worthwhile, and actually, very little harm is done by submitting remarks which turn out to be ignorable, so, I'm, like, hey. man! (More commas available on request.) Best wishes to all DBaK (talk) 14:37, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

I can assure you that your comments are viewed as astute, helpful and are very gratefully received. Its extremely satisfying to see the article become more clear, concise and polished from input such as yours today. If you spot more issues, dont hesitate to add!

That's so kind of you, Ceoil, thanks! I am delighted to have helped at all. I was absolutely intrigued, and am going to have to go and see one for real somewhere. Perhaps after I get my new specs! Cheers DBaK (talk) 19:25, 8 December 2018 (UTC)
Believe me I get the sentiment expressed in your username, and not just in relation to this website. From your approach and editing, have always seen you as somebody who "gets it", but may be disillusioned at the continual need to fight back and explain basics modes of intellectual conduct.
