Who is a Jew? again.[edit]

This is simply the absolute last warning about your disruptive use of talk pages. After this I will seek administrative recourse. Do NOT interrupt other editors' comments. It allows you to recast sections in a different light by interupting a longer point and responding to each as if that were in itself an entire concept expressed. Your interruptions, and that is exactly what they are, no different than conversation, are rude and disruptive to the discourse. Simply put, stop doing it. I am not the only editor warning you about this. ThuranX 00:18, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

Yes,I was warned you were trying to get rid of me. And no, you are the only one saying this - as the last time you claimed you were "not the only one telling me something." Gee, I suppose I should look into having an administrator look at how you keep lying about me, outright.
If you do get an administrator asking questions, you can ask me for a reference as a neutral observer. I think ThuranX is confusing you with Bus Stop!
It's quite right that you should insert your comments at the end of a section, rather than immediately after the remark that prompts them, but this is a minor matter (And I notice that ThuranX himself has been guilty of it too!). All the best. --Sir Myles na Gopaleen (the da) 09:30, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
I did notice the first time I did it that I messed up the page (& got confused *myself* as to how to restore it) - so that's why I kept transposing people's signatures when I did it the next time; I answer that way because I like to answer one issue at a time - definitely not to mess anything up. But if that's really the way to go, I will adjust. Thank you very much for your kindness, and no,it's no surprise that he's done it, too - I hadn't paid attention to it, myself.FlaviaR 15:40, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Green eyes[edit]

If you have green eyes, beware of George Saliba! SFriendly.gif Welcome to Wikipedia... AnonMoos (talk) 11:28, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

Oh, I'd love to get hold of him - give hi the same answer I give all the other bigots on Usenet who try that "Judaism is a race" crap.FlaviaR (talk) 06:03, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
Of course it is -- one reason I post less at Usenet is because I'm more here... AnonMoos (talk) 14:23, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

DC Meetup on May 17th[edit]

Your help is needed in planning Wikipedia:Meetup/DC 4! Any comments or suggestions you have are greatly appreciated. The Placebo Effect (talk) 19:43, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Meetup/DC 4[edit]

Please note that there is a DC Meetup planned for May 17th at 5:00 p.m., though a place has not yet been set. You're receiving this notice because you posted to the page for the prior meetup - Wikipedia:Meetup/DC 3 - but haven't indicated whether or not you're interested in attending this one. (Apologies if in fact you have.) BetacommandBot (talk) 01:07, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

Glossary talk page[edit]

I left you a comment at Talk:Glossary_of_Christian_and_Jewish_terms#Why.3F

Please help with Shituf[edit]

I am writing this to you because you have edited articles on Jewish subjects in the past. There is currently an RfC on the talk page of this article [1].

You can view the difference between the contending versions of the article here: [2].

The page is currently protected from editing for 5 days, but the end result of the article depends on what consensus, if any, is reached during those 5 days. Please help with this RfC. -LisaLiel (talk) 22:09, 4 July 2008 (UTC)


I received a strange, unsigned message seeming for "jews" to the effect that "the wikipedia is closed until jan31!if you try to enter you will be blocked by me!remind them all!" Is someone trying to frighten Jews, or does this actually pertain to something & was just sent by someone without a whole lot of sense??FlaviaR (talk) 13:10, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

The user was a vandal, no need to worry about it. You can feel free to continue editing. The said user has bee blocked now. :-) Stwalkerstertalk ] 13:14, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
Thank you, I thought so.FlaviaR (talk) 13:27, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Joséphine de Beauharnais[edit]

Your comment: ***Someone mispslled her name!!!***

Beauharnai sans final *s*. My God ! That was not a mistake but, obviously, what is commonly known as a *typo* (mine). Merci pour la correction, mais pas nécessaire d'en faire tout un fromage! Frania W. (talk) 22:27, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

First off, a typo is a mistake - that's the very nature of a typo, that it is a mistake. Secondly, a typo that ends up in misspelling someone's name is a misspelling; it just wasn't intentional or done out of ignorance - & I never attributed any sort of reason for it; we do, however, have to put in a reason why we've edited a page. The only one making a cheese, as you put it colloquially, is you. I am very sorry if I hurt your feelings, but you inferred an insult; none was written, or even intended.

Gaza War[edit]

Your edit seems perfectly reasonable but please use the talk page in the future when editing such a controversial line in a controversial part of a controversial article.Cptnono (talk) 03:38, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

LOL. Good timing. Thanks.Cptnono (talk) 03:39, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
Um, what good timing? FlaviaR (talk) 04:30, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Gaza War[edit]

  • I think you (unintentionally) made the wording problem in the lead even worse, your new text implied that IDF deliberately targeted civilian places. Marokwitz (talk) 08:08, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
    • While I disagree that it looked worse, the article does look better now, anyway (If it was your doing, thanks!). However, I would LOVE to find a way to edit "Israel began an offensive" without all hell breaking lose. After all, the offensive had begun from Gaza - this was retaliation. Just try to get THAT in!! FlaviaR (talk) 04:24, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia DC Meetup 13[edit]

Message from BMSprint[edit]

I'm contacting you because I wanted to talk to you about your 'monarchist' userbox. We can talk back and forth, edit my user talk page here I am just curious about the different reasons people identify as monarchists! BMSprint (talk) 20:26, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Hey, terrific! In short, I am a monarchist because I think the human condition still demands it (I am going to put this on your page as well, because I don't know if you get notified of stuff that goes onto my page!)
  • You have to put it on the user you are talking to's talk page. It's OK to a limited extent, and your answer is very vague and I am not sure what you mean exactly! BMSprint (talk) 18:30, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Sorry for taking so long in responding, I don't often log into Wikipedia. That is an abstract way of looking at it for sure, and I disagree with you somewhat; to me it seems like every President we elect winds up being hated no matter what he does. People are unsatisfied with their lives no matter what and blame the government and the President in particular. Everyone who isn't as rich as they want to be say the economy sucks and blame the President. Each president starts with ratings of over 50% and slowly but surely it dwindles because people here want to see the negative more than they see the positive. I like true monarchy, as in, we don't vote for who is the monarch. BMSprint (talk) 16:47, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Wikimania 2012 bid, DC chapter & next meetup![edit]
