Hi, just wondering why you deleted the edit regarding religious prohibition of this practice - as vandalism, no less? It was written from a NPOV, and is a valid commentary on a well-known belief in certain religions. It possibly needed to be put in a different spot, or maybe needed to be elaborated on, but it is an actual controversy for some people. I will wait for your comment before putting it back in (unless you don't respond at all). Thanks in advance for your attention to this matter. bcatt 23:32, 30 January 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Hi again, sorry if I spoke to quickly, it appeared that you had deleted the following sentence: "Religious beliefs, such as the Jewish and Muslim prohibition against eating pork, may also present concerns for some."...on a double check, I see that it is still in the article...when I was looking, I didn't even see the "jack n sucks dick" comment (which is indeed vandalism, as I'm sure you know! :)), perhaps a glitch sent me to the wrong spot in the history, or maybe I was just too tired and shouldn't have been editing wikipedia at that time! When restoring deleted portions, a page blank is definitely vandalism, or any deletion intended to remove NPOV, but a deleted portion which was done in an attempt to improve the article (whether or not it actually does) isn't really that case, you would put "restoring valid info" or something to that effect. In any case, it all looks good, sorry for any misunderstanding. bcatt 20:52, 31 January 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Millikan oil drop experiment[edit]

Hi, I'm slightly puzzled as to why you thought the description of Millikan's oil drop experiement as 'simple and elegant' was POV. I'd have thought that this was ordinary comment for the benefit of non-scientific readers. It's intrinsically simple because it's direct and straightforward, and it's an elegant concept because it balances charge against gravity almost like weighing scales. Like good inventions, it's so simple that it's surprising no one thought of it earlier. Also the experiment came No. 3 in a Physics World poll for the most beautiful physics experiment: [[1]] Davy p 16:49, 5 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]


Hi, Leoadec! Regarding this, could you, please, tell me in which browser you are experiencing the issue of the infobox being too wide? I myself tried IE, Firefox, and Opera (both desktop and mobile), and all the lines wrap just fine, conforming with the infobox width set in the template. I know that some other people experienced this same bug before, but I was never able to reproduce it myself (and without that, of course, I can't get it fixed). Thanks!—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 15:28, 30 January 2008 (UTC)[reply]

That's not a browser I myself can test, unfortunately :( I know previously some users had this bug with Firefox in Windows, but it seems to have gone away when one of the new Firefox updates was out. Anyway, thanks for letting me know!—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 17:43, 30 January 2008 (UTC)[reply]


Hi, Leoadec, não sei se você ainda se lembra dos bons tempos do wikicionário. De qualquer modo, essa mensagem é apenas para te deixar um abraço. Eusbarbosa (talk) 00:16, 9 November 2008 (UTC)[reply]
