Linda Siegel[edit]

Looks like someone's done it. Mind fixing it up while I deal with other matters? Thanks--Taeyebaar (talk) 07:13, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Nice work. No you didn't break any rule. I'll work on the article to fix the links. Again, nice work.--Taeyebaar (talk) 19:04, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
  • One last thing I think you need to swap some content between Anne Castles and Linda Siegel. Castles has criticized 'brain training' programs as cited; wheras Siegel has only criticized one program at least as far as sources are concerned. You may want to consider that.--Taeyebaar (talk) 19:38, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

Norm Houghton (historian)[edit]

Hi Garyvines, i have just added some categories to the above article, and some wikiprojects to the talkpage. Its great that the article has survived, but only just:) i've been thinking of other possibilities to make him more notable. Do you know whether he has ever received any sort of awards or official(government) thanks for his work? Also, the names of the sites he has researched that have become part of the national (or Victorian) estate (unfortunately i didn't note this when looking at pete evans' reports)? adding this sort of info would probably help. thanks Coolabahapple (talk) 06:51, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Gundagai[edit]

"Johneen Jones, JJones, and various other real and pseudonym names posts on Gundagai matters extensively - Apart from the spammers, this is the only completely banned poster to ozarch. The poster can get quite rude when challenged. The major themes are the conspiracy about denied aboriginal massacre sites, and the spiritual significance of the dog - apparently an ancient aboriginal lore. You will find posts on various forums, and especially feedback and comments on other blogs, news sites etc. the poster was also banned from Wikipedia for edit wars and abuse also on Gundagai topics. the Gundagai issue became more than just arguments in virtual space when the roads authority had to spend thousands more to investigate what were probably completely spurious claims of sacred sites etc."

? You silly thing. You accepted that link and image I sent yet you go on like that. Also, I was NOT the first person to note the Coolac Massacre in relation to the Coolac Bypass That was first mentioned and published by the first Archs (Nadin Officer whoever?), after they spoke with a Coolac longtime resident (Gary Churchin), so you are defaming me there and there is no need for that is there. Navin Officer published that Gary Churchin told them of the Massacre in one of the Road authority's publications but did not name their informant. I have a copy of that publication. The reality is that Gundagai is a significant Aboriginal Place as Jacki Taylor (RMS road authority - new name for that authority), archaeologist, also says so instead of bad mouthing me, why don't you explore the topic more. It was William Leigh an Aboriginal man now of Gundagai for many years who originated at Dubbo told me that it was Gary Churchin told Navin Officer about the massacre. I rang Gary Churchin at the time and he related the events of the massacre as he knew them, to me as told to him by a Foster, a very very old man who used to live over the road from Gary Churchin at Coolac, in a hut. If you do a north of Gundagai search on Trove, try Yasf (south of Yass), using the old form of writing double 's's'. Some arch efforts are really sad as is the behavior and lies. Ask too why the significant Aboriginal Place, i.e. Gundagai and its environs, raises so much political bile from some archs? I was going to have a normal burial here at Gundagai when I die but after experiencing the archaeology 'profession' and given the very high significance of Aboriginal Gundagai, I will now be cremated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 58.166.116.150 (talk) 09:49, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
