Hi Jonivision! Wellcome on wikipedia!

You say: If we are going to cover the modern science of computers, we should start with people like Shannon, von Neumann, and Cook

Well, I dont disagree. I suppose, from what you say, that you would also agree that if we are to define modern computer science, then it is probably more appropriate to call it the modern science of computing than the modern science of computers. No? Best regards. --Powo 08:56, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

Hey Jonovision! I have a question. I recently wrote the last paragraph in the Criticism section of the article on Corporations (the paragraph about public health). You noted that I must cite a reference backing my claim that corporations tend to make decisions that profit them, even if these decisions harm the public's health. Fair enough! However, I don't have a reference that 'says' that--I only have a corporation's website in which they openly talk about their decision processes--they clearly indicate that they make decisions in a way that backs my claim. Can I use this site as a reference? Must I use it in some special unorthadox way? The site is here. Thanks! Murftown Jul 19, 3:14 AM (UTC)


In Gratitude

Golly, Jonovision, thanks a million for awarding me the Copyeditor's Barnstar! It's really beautiful and makes me feel warm and fluffy all over, but the best part isn't the recognition and adulation that are sure to follow (;-), it's knowing that you care. It may sound sentimental and gushy, but I'm truly touched by your altruism and sense of compassion, having reached out, in a world beset with carelessness, spite, and covetousness, to do a stranger the kindness of appreciating his efforts, and arising to say so. How sensitive and generous of you! I don't know whether the Copyeditor's Barnstar is a great honor or a small one, but I do know I cherish it. This is the nicest thing that's happened to me in a long time, and I'm profoundly grateful for it, and to you. Thank you, thank you, thank you, sincerely.

Corporation[edit]

Elegantly handled - well done. Pdfpdf (talk) 09:34, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

For being such a pain in the ass, I don't think you have any formal training in corporate law or business history. What's your deal? Why do you keep messing with my stuff, esp. when you don't make it better? Truth be told, I'm sick of it. You've been dicking around for months on the Corporation page and it stick sucks ass. You can't possibly think you're doing a service to Wikipedia. But at this point, I don't want to put the time into re-writing the section on Modern Corporation for fear that you'll, in your omnipresent stupidity and with the arrogance of a novice, delete my hard work. Now your sitting on your hands and not responding. Keep it up, dude. I will wait you out over the year, make my case, and your non-educated ass is going to fold. Blow me. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Professor Todd (talkcontribs) 01:28, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

I for one am ready for a wikiquette on Professor Todd. His insults and attitude are poisonous to collaborative editing IMO. Thoughts? Soxwon (talk) 16:51, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

3RR[edit]

You have violated 3RR on Corporation, I suggest you revert. Soxwon (talk) 01:06, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

Go ahead and revert, I was going to report this mess to AN3 anyhow. Soxwon (talk) 01:14, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

Blocked[edit]

Hello Jonovision. I've blocked you for 24 hours for a 3 revert rule violation at Corporation. The edits in question are;[1], [2], [3] and [4]. If we look over the last 48 hours, there's 6 reverts from you which is unacceptable. Ryan PostlethwaiteSee the mess I've created or let's have banter 12:57, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
