Hello James Cantor. As a general question, do you have easy access to articles in the Archives of Sexual Behavior? FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk) 06:42, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Sure. What can I grab for you? (And I'd need your email address to send it to.) — James Cantor (talk) 12:31, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. I need Kenneth Zucker's review of Shaping Your Child's Sexual Identity and Growing Up Straight by George Alan Rekers. Although it is a negative review, it would help me to establish the notability of the books concerned. I could give you my email address, but there is another option: if you wanted to, you could add the review to the articles about Rekers's books. FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk) 21:30, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I don't have time to digest and add it myself, but it was no trouble to retrieve the review itself. Just let me know where to send it! — James Cantor (talk) 23:53, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
Please send it to I quite understand if you don't want to work on the articles yourself. FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk) 07:25, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Edit warring[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.


Hello Dr. Cantor, I recently proposed some edits at the sex offender talk page: [[1]] . I don't want to be a lazy editor but I thought I might ask if you have any WP:RS ready to go? I don't want to add work to your plate, I should be able to find information. Incidentally both links to assessments in the article are not working? Is Quinsey's work generally regarded as a WP:RS? Hope to talk to you soon --Cityside189 (talk) 02:48, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Sex Offender Incomplete Sentences Blank[edit]

Is this test used much? I don't see a lot of sources mentioning it, but it sounds kind of interesting, like a Mad Libs approach to seeing what's in people's heads. Beembly (talk) 20:08, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

I very, very rarely see it. I'm sure there might be psychoanalytic hold-out's who still try to use it, but projection tests can't get far in any forensic situation. — James Cantor (talk) 20:31, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
Is this because structured risk instruments that are composed of predetermined risk factors, that specify how to combine factors into a total score, that provide cutoff scores for risk levels, that provide estimated recidivism rates, and that periodically revise their scales to reflect advances in knowledge, are consistently found to be more accurate than unstructured approaches? Beembly (talk) 21:21, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
Yes, exactly. — James Cantor (talk) 16:57, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
