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)

Aquatic Ape Hypothesis[edit]

I can only assume from this contentious claim that you think you have wider consensus than might be found on the subject's talk page to arbitrarily remove illustrative pictures and text. Can you point me to that "community consensus on a wider scale" which endorses your deletions? If you fail to do so, I will reinstate the edits you have removed, and hope you will take the time to argue for the deletions you wish to propose. Alfietucker (talk) 18:31, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Even to an AAH advocate, it should be apparent that AAH is FRINGE. Notwithstanding all the ARGUE or the CONSENSUS on that page, it should be apparent to you that there is no general acceptance of AAH. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, and should describe AAH as FRINGE. Any "alternative views", if mentioned, should be described as FRINGE too. --Fama Clamosa (talk) 19:03, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
Even allowing that AAH is "fringe", it is the encyclopaedia's job to present the arguments of that hypothesis (indeed, to give a reasonably full exposition of its subject), and then debunk them. What you appear to be doing, on the contrary, is deleting material without discussion. btw WP:POV, which I assume you are referring to in this edit comment, applies to comments or slants provided by the WP editor, not to published opinion which is duly credited as was the case of the text you deleted without discussion. Will you now be so good as to provide the "community consensus on a wider scale" you claim you have? Alfietucker (talk) 19:11, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
There is no need for a "community consensus" and it is certainly not "the job" of Wikipedia to "present arguments". AAH is FRINGE and it should be described as such. And that is it. Please stop POV-pushing Wikipedia. A place anyone can edit is not your venue. --Fama Clamosa (talk) 19:23, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
"A place anyone can edit is not your venue." With due respect, you appear not only to misunderstand Wikipedia policies, but even its ethos - let alone to ignore the fact that I have been editing here since 2006 and, I dare say, have earned considerable respect for my work here. Further, I can only assume from your latest reply that your claim that you have "community consensus" is itself based on an assumption - you are very welcome to put it to the test if you so wish; either that, or come to the talk page as I have previously suggested. Alfietucker (talk) 19:34, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
"Community consensus" again? Have you been pushing a POV since 2006? Should I waste the rest of my life arguing on "that" talk page? Just accept that AAH is FRINGE and should be described as such. --Fama Clamosa (talk) 19:48, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
It was you - not I - who first linked to this policy with your edit comment here: if you don't like what it says, I suggest you read the policies you link to more carefully. Alfietucker (talk) 19:56, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

I have unreviewed a page you curated[edit]

Hi, I'm ChicXulub. I wanted to let you know that I saw the page you reviewed, Phlaocyon yatkolai, and have un-reviewed it again. If you have any questions, please ask them on my talk page. Thank you. ChicXulub (talk) 12:01, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Fine with me. (FYI: I'm an autoreviewer.) --Fama Clamosa (talk) 12:10, 21 September 2014 (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).
