Fixing the Science article to reflect all fields using the scientific method, including the social sciences[edit]

I saw in the discussion that you intended to get to this. Just wondering if you are expecting to be able to do it, as I don't think I can. Shoreranger (talk) 17:15, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

I agree with your assessment, although possibly a block is more appropriate than a ban; but Kuru got your message first. --Anthony Bradbury"talk" 20:33, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

Wikibooks[edit]

I am planning to build a Wikibook on linear algebra; the work is still in progress, anyone wanting to collaborate is welcome to join. Jorgen W (talk) 23:43, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

So, I have some very basic questions: why all users and contributors are used to write "per" instead of "for"? The most recurring example: a user explains her/his edit, or posts a comment in a debating discussion and writes per WP:Policy instead of for WP:Policy; also the abuse of words and paraphrases borrowed from Latin or Italian sound unappropriate (for example,the term Consensus used instead of Agreement, the misuse of "de facto" , just to mention one, the list is longer); is it American or some kind of pidgin English?? Or just "nerdie" English? --Jorgen W (talk) 20:32, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

I think, at this point, it's just "Wikipedia [Non-]Standard English". --I dream of horses If you reply here, please leave me a {{Talkback}} message on my talk page. @ 20:33, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for your quick reply, it doesn't change my bad opinion, though.--Jorgen W (talk) 10:12, 4 October 2012 (UTC)
Due to those issues, becoming a glad and co-operative contributor is nearly impossible to me, therefore I'm in a sort of semi-retirement.Jorg (talk) 02:53, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
