Kiesselbach's plexus[edit]

I am sorry, but I do not see your problem. While certainly there are some words in the article not in everyday usage, there are not many and a dictionary should elucidate the meanings where necessary. The diagram shows the nasal septum, and the text says precisely where Kiesselbach's plexus, or Little's area, is. Which bit are you having trouble understanding?--Anthony Bradbury"talk" 10:45, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

You're right in that a dictionary (or further Wikipedia reading) can help clear up some of those big words. However, I'd still feel better with a diagram that at the very least shows the arteries which converge to form the plexus, because I don't think the article as it stands now explains the location well enough to clarify it to someone who is not a medical professional. Bear in mind, too, that a parent of mine is a medical professional and I do possess a basic level of medical and anatomical knowledge; I just don't find this article to be terribly clearly-written. Dozzzzzzzzzing off (talk) 21:35, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

I gotta say, Jer...[edit]

How many years has this been now? Eight, nine?

It's hilariously ironic seeing a manchild with nothing constructive to give to society, a perma 15-year-old who's fucked with Wikipedia with laserlike asspie focus for almost a whole decade, crusading for the Job Creators of the Republican party. Even those right wing talking heads you have a boner for _work_ for a living, you know. 64.134.67.33 (talk) 23:58, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Hello D. I am sorry that you had to put up with this BS. You are certainly free to remove this message under the guidelines for talk pages. We carry an extensive line of Troll-be-GoneRegisteredTM.svg products which are perfect for this situation. Again IMO you should just remove this nonsense. Cheers and have a good weekend! MarnetteD | Talk 15:54, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
Thank you, although I'll leave this on my talk page anyway---no need to surgically remove little scars; they show character. Dozzzzzzzzzing off (talk) 17:07, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
Sounds good. Seeing one of the userboxes on your page I'm sure that you know that Bender is great! so I think you will like the quotes at this article - especially number five that has part of your username in it! Cheers again. MarnetteD | Talk 17:17, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
Thanks! That whole site is dedicated to Futurama? That's good news, everyone! Dozzzzzzzzzing off (talk) 20:03, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

Alleged and minor tags[edit]

I just reverted your edit at Anti-racism in mathematics teaching, because of the inappropriate use of WP:ALLEGED. There are better ways of showing how a named individual's opinion is an opinion. Mostly, I'm dropping this message because the use of a minor tag was inappropriate. Any change to content, even a synonym which might carry a different nuance, exceeds the scope of the minor tag. I can see what you are trying to do, and I agree with the sentiment behind it. Please, do not let this be a discouragement from trying again.Novangelis (talk) 19:14, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

So what would you recommend? Dozzzzzzzzzing off (talk) 19:17, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
Something like "what he considers" for alleged, or "has written an opinion that..." and move the term "academic imperialism" past the definition. The goal is to write a flowing text that expresses the facts. If there were an immediately obvious best way, I would have made the change myself. In the same vein, I'd probably kill the word polymath as a WP:PEACOCK term. Given that this article is mostly an reflection of the one person's opinions, it is intrinsically problematic article.Novangelis (talk) 20:05, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
There, made another change. Let's see how this one goes over. Dozzzzzzzzzing off (talk) 17:55, 13 July 2013 (UTC)
That solution is better Wikipedia writing. Expressing something as a specific individual's opinion rather than a fact doubted by some ill-defined individual or individuals is better writing in terms of [[WP:NPOV]. It is subtle, but with a little practice it becomes second nature. Thanks for sticking with it.Novangelis (talk) 19:36, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

My edit count[edit]

No offence taken. The edit total includes admin actions, currently standing at something over 26,000. Other edits are something over 18,000. You could argue as to the exact definition of "edits"; I choose to take it as including both categories. I am somewhat encouraged by your interest. --Anthony Bradbury"talk" 18:33, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

P.S. of course I won't block you; it is a perfectly fair question. --Anthony Bradbury"talk" 18:36, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. I've done a fair bit of observing on Wikipedia, and I've noticed that some admins seem to be rather block-happy. Figured, not knowing whether you were one of these, that the best route to take was to tread lightly. Dozzzzzzzzzing off (talk) 19:21, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
I try only to block when no other course is correct; I think most of us do. Anyone can make a mistake, but hopefully I make fairly few. And, of course, on Wikipedia every action is reversible, at least by someone with the correct responsibility.--Anthony Bradbury"talk" 21:20, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
Incidentally, and purely for fullness of information, I see that there are at present 3 editors who watch your page; also as of now 228 are watching mine. And this is average for an admin; any transgression is jumped on from a great height! --Anthony Bradbury"talk" 21:31, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
There are three people stalking my talk page?! Dozzzzzzzzzing off (talk) 22:34, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Sure, but we all have watchers. As I say, I have 228 last time I looked. To see the figure click the link "view history" at the top of the page, and then click on "number of watchers". You use the term "stalkers", but nearly all watchers are in fact benign and even protective. --Anthony Bradbury"talk" 11:10, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

It just says "under 30"---perhaps the specific number is privy exclusively to admins, though I can't see why that would be the case. Anyway, I thought a lot of editors called them "stalkers" in a half-joking way. Dozzzzzzzzzing off (talk) 23:57, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
I didn't discover this link until after I was an admin, so sorry about that. A lot of people do actually see the term stalker as being at least minimally pejorative. --Anthony Bradbury"talk" 20:24, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Adoption[edit]

I see on your user page that you are seeking adoption. I hesitate to offer right now, as I shall be off-wiki for about ten weeks over winter. But I am happy to give any advice that you may need up to the end of November, and would be happy to adopt you, if it were to be still appropriate, in mid-February. --Anthony Bradbury"talk" 18:50, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Should I still be an orphan, as it were, I shall take you up on that offer in mid-February. Dozzzzzzzzzing off (talk) 19:19, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Confession[edit]


I've made some strides as an editor, and I eventually want to do a lot to help the encyclopedia. But I've been thinking about this a lot, and I can't build a reputation based on lies or omissions. I want no skeletons in my closet, so I've decided to come clean: I am the individual behind the "Yummyanaljuices" sock farm. Legitimate editing has greatly decreased my desire to sock and reduced the frequency of my socking, but I cannot allow myself to continue editing without having been forthright with the community.

Obviously I'm going to be blocked, and rightfully so; my goal is to eventually come back via the standard offer or, if I am considered to be banned, via second chance, after a minimum of six months with no editing (or socking, trolling, or any of that other nonsense). Some administrators probably don't think I should ever be allowed back into the community, and I respect their opinion. I am aware that it will take a good deal of time and effort to regain the community's trust. As a show of good faith, I am willing to, upon request, reveal my real name and physical address to members of the Wikimedia Foundation or Arbitration Committee as a condition of my unblock (if and when that occurs). I would like to apologize for my past actions, and especially to anyone whom I may have personally hurt or offended. I care about this project and want to eventually make significant contributions to it, but I understand that I need to spend some time away and (when the time comes) provide a good reason to be unblocked. In the meantime, I will familiarize myself with site policies.

Please block my underlying IP for at least six months. There are no other accounts associated with it and I don't want to have the opportunity to create any more. I don't know which account I should request unblock from when that time comes (MCM0313 was actually the first I created). I do have one request for now: can someone finish cleaning up Reggie Barlow? I started on it but it's still very POV. Ditto for Willie Wilson (minister). Thanks, all, and I shall perhaps see you in several months. Dozzzzzzzzzing off (talk) 00:02, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Well, thanks, but frankly, if you've confessed to it and promise not to carry on then I don't care enough to block you. Why don't you just get back to editing constructively and see what happens? --(ʞɿɐʇ) ɐuɐʞsǝp 01:20, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
It would also appear that a clean start is an option. To me it seems you're looking for a punitive block which I do not think should not be enforced. Mkdwtalk 01:22, 25 April 2014 (UTC) Removed double negative; you know what I meant. Mkdwtalk 01:39, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Wow, really? Okey-dokey, then. I shall strenuously avoid any further disruptive behavior. Thank you. Also, User: Duncan's Drunken Destruction and User:Sir Buzzford M. Killington, Esq. are both socks that I created way back in 2012 that were never blocked. Would you mind taking care of them? If you need proof, I can sign in and put something on their talk pages. Dozzzzzzzzzing off (talk) 01:24, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
A CU will need to look into that to verify that connection or you will need to login and link those accounts. Mkdwtalk 01:25, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
I'm certain they'd both come up as stale if a CU looked into them. I can log in if that won't get me accused of more rule-breaking than I'm already guilty of. Dozzzzzzzzzing off (talk) 01:27, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Then leave it. I don't really care about those accounts enough to block them, frankly. Just don't use them. --(ʞɿɐʇ) ɐuɐʞsǝp 01:28, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
I wholeheartedly agree with the comments by Mkdw and Deskana!--CaroleHenson (talk) 01:47, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia Connection (Ohio State)[edit]

Hi there. I noticed from your userpage that you may be attending Ohio State. If you're still attending, I invite you to take a look at Wikipedia Connection. We're a new student organization I'm starting up to bring students interested in Wikipedia together, regardless of experience. If you're still attending Ohio State and are interested, do feel free to join and sign up for our mailing list! I'll be happy to provide more details if you'd like. Thanks, and go Bucks. ~SuperHamster Talk Contribs 03:55, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Dude, that sounds awesome, and I hope it results in a lot of constructive work from OSU students! I obtained a graduate degree in May of 2013 and have not attended OSU since; I'm actually going back to school soon, but it'll be elsewhere. However, I wish you the best of luck, and I would totally be interested in the occasional meetup when able to attend. Dozzzzzzzzzing off (talk) 04:36, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
