I didn't lock it, but suspect it was because of recent trolling. I wouldn't expect it to be unlocked soon. SlimVirgin (talk) July 2, 2005 07:54 (UTC)

Warning - your edits are unacceptable[edit]

Floody - you have recently been removing pictures you consider offensive from our articles. This is unacceptable. Wikipedia is not censored our bowdlerized, and may contain offensive content. If you continue removing pictures, you risk being blocked from Wikipedia. →Raul654 July 3, 2005 23:24 (UTC)

Please stop. If you continue to vandalize pages, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. --cesarb 3 July 2005 23:41 (UTC)

These admins have declined to specify what specific edits were against the rules. Instead, they make empty threats. Floopy 3 July 2005 23:52 (UTC)
After stumbling upon the feces article discussion I found out that admins not stating their reason for blocking is not the only dubious thing, Your actions were dubious too: "I've gotten rid of the dirty pictures at clitoris, meconium, masturbation, penis and anus. Floopy 3 July 2005 22:55 (UTC)". You simply cannot dictate which is "dirty" and which not as an individual. Dictionary is meant to provide information no matter if it's about a subject that might be disgusting to some individuals. Something simply being against your own philosophy of life or religion is not enough to be a reason for deleting information from the eyes of others - no matter how insignificant it might be. piksi 19:35, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedian Behavior[edit]

Although I disagree with yours and LittleRedRidingHood's positions on the Feces article, I am horrified by the arrogance of the admins who are using blocking to stifle debate, clearly in violation of policy. Since Mikkalai has today made his contempt official, I have started an RFC on his blocking of LittleRedRidingHood. Can one or both of you please sign your name under 'users certifying the basis for this dispute?' If not, the RFC will be deleted. [1] Floopy 7 July 2005 01:58 (UTC)

You were right about the personal attack so i removed it. I was out of line. Floopy 7 July 2005 00:18 (UTC)

  • I can't find the comment where he made his contempt "official." Could you point me to it? I agree that his behavior is autocratic at best. If someone is blocked, e deserves an explanation as to why. Also, thank you for retracting the insults against the other user on the talk page. ^_^ I'm amused that we three users who are at odds over the article are all feeling oppressed by the same individual. I agree with the lock on the article though. Wikipedia as a group needs to arrive at some sort of consensus. And then if we disagree with it, we must just accept it and move it. We have users who feel passionately about the subject. If everyone just changes the article willy-nilly, we'll just have stalemate with two users reverting the article back and forth. And that doesn't resolve anything. I noticed a while back that Mikkalai was stalking my edits, so I began to correct any grammatical errors I noticed in his edits. He seemed to leave me alone after that. Gemini6Ice 7 July 2005 03:35 (UTC)
  • Incidentally, here is the current stalemate I have with mikka: Talk:-cide. He removed homocide from the list of neologisms, so I reverted it, and then he rereverted it. Gemini6Ice 7 July 2005 03:38 (UTC)

Image Tagging Image:Floopy.gif[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Floopy.gif. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{GFDL-self}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media qualifies as fair use, please read fair use, and then use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Shyam (T/C) 09:27, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

A Prude[edit]

Could you be more of one? Pictures of poo are not offensive. They are poo. Everybody poops.
