Electronic harassment[edit]

I'm working on this article, your help isn't very helpful.[1]

Could you be so kind to restore the page so that the work may continue.

Your contributions do not improve the article. End of discussion. GDallimore (Talk) 15:01, 2 August 2014 (UTC)[]
Hello again,
End of discussion? You call this a discussion? You call that an article? I'm not impressed! With all respect, I don't particularly care for your believes about my ability to write an article. The reality from my perspective is that you didn't give me time to finish it. 4 minutes is just not enough to even remove the italics, let alone attempt to rewrite everything neutrally, source everything properly and remove remaining unsourced sections. It just cant be done in 4 min. It was obvious enough I was working on that was it not? It is not beyond me to search for sources, delete material that doesn't belong and put [citation needed] where the citations are reasonable but not good enough. Inserting section by section from the archive is considerably more work. Specially if the content (if we can call it that) still has to be arranged properly. With your help, it could have been finished by now? We can do it your way of course, if you insist. I'm curious, are you just going to sit there or are you going to help write it?
I was reading this talk page contribution of yours:
"allegations from individuals identified as delusional by every reliable source I can find."
You haven't looked very hard. Start here: Harassment then read on here: Directed-energy_weapon, Sonic weapon, Non-lethal weapon and here: Project MKUltra. The last one is most relevant. The "toys" apparently have been elaborately tested on civilians, reliable sources report. Some NBC link announcing that it is all in peoples head is not a sufficient refutation. Even if it was, the conspiracy theories are also notable, provided they can be sourced properly and are described as such, they make up an important bit of historic context.
In some states it is illegal to own such a weapon:
In others you need a license for it much like a fire arm:
People have these things and they are going to use them you see? While it should not become a repository of victims, if there are relevant court cases we can use those, I haven't seen any so far.
If you are really that worried about non existent article, lets debate the sections on the article talk page and try find sources for them. I believe that was the way it was suppose to be done? Unless you just want to sit there and complaint of course, while not very useful, you are free to do that as well.
Don't forget to read the MKUltra article. The Electronic harassment article should not contradict every word on that page in my view.
If you don't agree with that, please elaborate.
Thanks for your time. (talk) 02:04, 3 August 2014 (UTC)[]

Talking tree as a link on Auditory hallucination[edit]

Hello, you said there is no reason to add the link Talking tree to Auditory hallucination. I disagree , re inserted the link and started a dialogue on the talk page of Auditory Hallucination. I forgot to leave a comment when I did the edit, describing the reversion, that is the reason I am writing you here.--Mark v1.0 (talk) 15:58, 23 September 2014 (UTC)[]

Dear Geoff,

Please do not delete my Optica Software article!!!! I am still working on it. I will try to improve the sources, and get some of the the users to contribute, so please give me time.

Your push to delete, has greatly distressed me.

About the article Flowers for Algernon[edit]

Hello User:GDallimore! I saw that you (correctly) reverted an edit in Flowers for Algernon due to its objective lack of secondary sourcing and its subjective insignificance. I wasn't sure whether to call the new section "In popular culture" or "Derivative works", but I was planning to add other examples (this time, sourced) of works that have been inspired by the novel. Before proceeding with the expansion, and being quite new here at Wikipedia, I'm contacting you to know if there is any kind of "veto" to expand the article with derivative works, since you rejected that content two times, instead of finding a source and accepting the addition. Sorry if this question seems naive to you, but before investing time in searching for resources, I prefer to be sure that my actions will be compatible with the content guidelines that have been chosen by you for this article. Thanks in advance for your answer! ► LowLevel (talk) 17:02, 9 November 2014 (UTC)[]

Discussion of interest to you[edit]

You were a discussant at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Kim Cloutier which (somewhat strangely) closed as a delete with 5 delete and 4 keep responses. The article has since been recreated through the WP:AFC process and a speedy deletion was contested. Thus, I call your attention to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Kim Cloutier (2nd nomination).--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 23:12, 18 December 2014 (UTC)[]

Proposed deletion of Challenge (literature)[edit]


The article Challenge (literature) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This highly US-centric article is completely redundant to Book censorship in the United States, and is written as if it were an undergraduate essay.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Invite to Join WikiProject for Spoken Wikipedia[edit]

Wikimic-cropped.svg Hi GDallimore! I am Galendalia and I have revived the WikiProject for Spoken Wikipedia. I noticed that you signed up at some point to be a participant and as I am reviving this project, one of my tasks is to get the participant list in order. Would you please go to the Participants List and add your name and language(s) you speak? If you are already there and do not want to be, please remove yourself. If you want to remain, please put remain next to your name. If I do not see anything, I will move you to the inactive participant list. I am putting a timeline of 7 days on this action to help keep things moving along. It would also be great if you would be willing to join the task force for Pronunciation that would be awesome, as there are troublesome words we run into.

Thank you for considering joining us. If you decide to leave, I will be sad Cry.png to see you leave as so many people have done a great job on the recordings and any work you have done makes a significant difference.
