Sea salt[edit]

If you can disprove what I said about sea salt, I would like to hear it. In addition I did not do any 3RR. Have a good day. --Tarhound21 (talk) 12:54, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Please stop your edit warring, if you have objections to my edit you can explain them on the talk page rather than blindly reverting my edits. --Tarhound21 (talk) 22:02, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Phlaocyon minor, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Shannon County. 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.

It looks as though a copying error may have crept into your Huxley quote. Are you sure he said "I myself always learned sometimes by lecturing" rather than "learned something"? Cheers from a lecturer who always learned something, Awien (talk) 13:42, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi, thank you for asking.
That's the quote as I found it. I found it in Primate Anatomy (Preface page xiii, pdf page 14). Also note the sic in the quote. Fama Clamosa (talk) 16:02, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
Not sure if this will come through, but the original was indeed "learned something", as can be seen in the facsimile:
Awien (talk) 17:30, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes, it came through - p. vii Awien (talk) 17:37, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
OK, I stand corrected. Again, thank you. Fama Clamosa (talk) 03:28, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
Not your fault the quotation had got messed up before it reached you. But now it's fixed, the sic can go.
(Also, just for the record, whoever added that sic in the first place put it in the wrong place - it should come right after the incorrect word that one is quoting correctly from the source. And if we're going to be totally perfectionistic, there actually is a small hiccup in Huxley's syntax: the to at the beginning of the second sentence, "and to those . . . ", shouldn't be there. That's the sort of trivial slip that it's considered appropriate to correct without comment, rather than call attention to with a sic).
Your friendly neighbourhood pedant, Awien (talk) 12:13, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
Again, thank you for pointing all this out. When I think about it, it's a bit embarrassing to (1) invite people to use inline citations ("Please...") and (2) fail to deliver that on the same page. :P Fama Clamosa (talk) 16:17, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
Perfick! (H.E. Bates, The Darling Buds of May, passim).

Why did you revert me without an explanation on the article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Evropariver (talkcontribs) 15:32, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
