I fully support Trump[edit]

... in his call for an investigation into election irregularities. Not, of course, about his ridiculous tales of illegal voters being bused in, or dead people voting, or whatever other nonsense he was spouting. It's clear to me that the only way he could possibly have been elected was via tampering with the actual election process: voting hardware and/or software. No need to bother with the messy realities of getting people, living or dead, to vote illegally, when it's so much easier to simply manipulate the data. That there was foreign influence during the campaign is well established; I don't know if the false election results are due to foreign or domestic hacking.

It's almost two months into his presidency (2 down, just 46 more to go!), so why am I finally bringing this up? Well, his policies are likely to set back health care, civil rights, the environment, etc., etc., etc., decades at least, and probably longer. He's made the United States a laughing stock. I guess I can deal with all of that. But now it looks like he's having a chilling effect on Wikipedia editors, so I felt I could remain silent no longer.

I'd like to thank Samantha Bee and Stephen Colbert for helping me through these tough times; I dunno if I would've made it without them. MANdARAX  XAЯAbИAM 00:17, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

Note: I have previously pointed out that I retired the word kakistocracy from my vocabulary after G. W. Bush left office. Well... it's baaaaaaack! MANdARAX  XAЯAbИAM 22:47, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

DYK error[edit]

Hi Mandarax, apologies for removing it, having a blind moment. Thanks for restoring it. The Rambling Man (talk) 07:34, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

No problem. It didn't end up making any difference, as no action was taken before it was off the Main Page. MANdARAX  XAЯAbИAM 01:35, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Chantal Joffe, Self-Portrait with Esme.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Chantal Joffe, Self-Portrait with Esme.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:35, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
