Jah is the Rastafarian concept of God as personified as Hallie Selassie the Ethiopian Emperor. I can't believe you have a college degree in philosophy and you don't know that.

Yeah, I do. I was making a point that, in the article, Jah was thrown about without any explanation. Gingermint (talk) 06:35, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Asperger syndrome[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, adding content without citing a reliable source, as you did to Asperger syndrome, is not consistent with our policy of verifiability. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. If you are familiar with Wikipedia:Citing sources, please take this opportunity to add references to the article. The material that you are editing has been carefully checked against reliable sources, and changes to it should be equally well supported. Please see Wikipedia:Reliable sources (medicine-related articles) for the sort of sources that we're looking for in that article. Thank you. Eubulides (talk) 00:51, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi Gingermint. Asperger syndrome is a featured article on Wikipedia and has been well vetted for correct sourcing and grammar. Some of your edits are introducing incorrect grammar or text that is not supported by sources. Please discuss your edits at Talk:Asperger syndrome. Thanks, SandyGeorgia (Talk) 01:01, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

The article is hardly well-vetted. I don't trust many of the sources and the grammar is, at best, clunky and at other times, remedial. Gingermint (talk) 05:33, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

I suspect you will find Wikipedia editing more enjoyable if you read Wikipedia:Reliable sources (medicine-related articles) post-haste; the article is, in fact, cited to only the highest quality sources. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 05:57, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Editing Wiki talk pages[edit]

Hi Gingermint. Here is some suggested reading to help with your talk page posts:

Article talk pages are meant for discussing article content, based on reliable sources, not opinion. They are not the best place for a soapbox, anecdote, or personal opinion, although you are free to discuss almost anything you want on your own talk page. If you would thread your responses correctly on article talk, it would help (see the links above). SandyGeorgia (Talk) 01:06, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Bones[edit]

Definitely an Aspie. I think there was a student working under her that was also an Aspie, although I haven't really gotten into the show until this season. MichaelExe (talk) 01:48, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Also, if you haven't already seen it, you might find this article pretty interesting. MichaelExe (talk) 01:50, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

November 2009[edit]

UFO /etc[edit]

Hello Gingermint. I see you've come up against WP's ironic tendency to support the military/industrial medical hegemony. Some of these people-I recall ScienceApologist- are careerists; some are doubtless hired-guns å lå Israel's paid WP editors. WP was founded by a leftist entrepreneur, not a scholar, to combat the Murdochism of journalists, media, science... Cest la vie. OTOH NASA is now unable to avoid documenting huge objects visiting the sun, and other objects consistently traveling in the milli-second range of our time scale. But sheeple are still trained to trust in royalty and priesthoods. It is a dark st age. I hope you have good meditation community. Hilarleo Hey,L.E.O. 15:32, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Misty Copeland[edit]

I have noticed your comments at Talk:Misty Copeland and your malplaced comments at Talk:Misty Copeland/GA1. I have never heard the term danseuse and since it has no article on WP, it must not be that common. I know she is a soloist aspiring to be a principal. I think that is the point you are making. I have no problem with your removal of ballerina from the article for that reason. I am not so sure we should be sticking danseuse in. I am also aware that you have problems with the quality of the article. I am not a dancer. I surely befuddle, amuse, confuse and confound many readers because I write and review on many subjects outside of my expertise. I apologize for my efforts, however, something is often better than nothing. If you would like to take actions to improve the article commenting on a GA review that has been closed for 3 years is not the best way to go about things. You might try either WP:PR or a community WP:GAR.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 05:23, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

March 2012[edit]

In a recent edit to the page Fleetwood Mac, you changed one or more words or styles from one national variety of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, our policy is to respect national varieties of English in Wikipedia articles.

For a subject exclusively related to the United Kingdom (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. For something related to another English-speaking country, such as Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, use the variety of English used there. For an international topic, use the form of English that the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to another, even if you don't normally use the version in which the article is written. Respect other people's versions of English. They, in turn, should respect yours. Other general guidelines on how Wikipedia articles are written can be found in the Manual of Style. If you have any questions about this, you can ask me on my talk page or visit the help desk. Thank you. Escape Orbit (Talk) 20:59, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Raphael Ravenscroft[edit]

Hi Gingermint,

If I may be allowed to say so. This comment doesn't come across as constructive:-

"Ravenscroft was paid £27 for the session, with a cheque that bounced." The only citation for this is some obscure thing called "Scotland on Sunday." It may be a true story but we need something a little more believable than a UK publication to back it up. What next? Will we use research from Tiger Beat? Gingermint (talk)

It appears more patronising and condescending than anything else. You may wish to review your opinion if you believe that the only source of creditable references are based on being from the USA. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.30.21.255 (talk) 21:05, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
