E.M.Gregory's message[edit]

Okay, I don't know what the hell just happened, but apparently, User:E.M.Gregory sent me this message nearly an hour ago. I just responded to him cordially, but in truth, I really don't know what to say of this... Parsley Man (talk) 23:59, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

It's an extraordinary and ridiculous thing to say on another user's talk page. However, it does fit into the pattern of E.M.Gregory's conduct during the deletion debate of 2016 Ramadan attacks‎, which has shown pretty much a complete lack of WP:CONSENSUS building. There is a case for reporting this to WP:ANI, but this might simply increase the drama.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 04:21, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
I'm now tempted to do just that, but I'm unsure as to what exactly I'll say to justify the report... Parsley Man (talk) 06:59, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
It looks like it has wandered into WP:BADGER territory because it is not an attempt to discuss article improvement in a constructive way. However, ANI threads can often be drama festivals that generate more heat than light.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 07:13, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Can you help me? E.M. has turned the ANI discussion topic around and is now talking about me hounding him. I would like a fresh set of eyes to look at this, because while I do follow him around, what I've been doing recently is mere constructive edits. And I'm getting pretty fatigued from defending myself. Thank you. Parsley Man (talk) 07:43, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

I did say that that ANI threads are often drama festivals:) I'll have a look.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 08:14, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

2016 Orlando nightclub shooting[edit]

This commentary is right out of my psychology books "New Harbringer", Psychology Today, Patricia Evans et al. This was a psycho-analytical examination. Just so you know I am central Asian, Tatar muslim, and German Jew by heritage - who focuses on critical analysis. Can I have a copy of what I wrote = to go over it with Xtra, LGBT editor at Canadas premier gay newspaper, maybe the wording can use improvement. Also, I can have a retired University of Toronto Professor of Psychology reviews - to verify that the perspective is middle of the road & valid. How do you feel about these options — Preceding unsigned comment added by Steven Iwanow (talkcontribs) 11:49, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

That's all very well, but please bear in mind that Wikipedia is not a soapbox, and that most of this wandered off topic and had very little to do with the actual shooting in Orlando. If you have a university education, please bear in mind that Wikipedia articles are not essays based on personal analysis or commentary.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 12:03, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Thanks, this has become something of a slow edit war. I haven't disputed that there is anti-semitic material on BestGore, but it needs coverage in secondary sources.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 05:34, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
