RE: Tillie's Punctured Romance - Good stuff! Nice to see an article that is informative. JillandJack 17:14, 19 Jul 2004 (UTC)


I've watched All My Children since day one, off and on. And I was a fan of Ryan's Hope when it was on the air. GH and OLTL are sort of "I watch them if I happen to see them on." I've always loved Ilene Kristen, though. RickK 22:28, Jul 19, 2004 (UTC)

I replied to you on my page. RickK 22:34, Jul 19, 2004 (UTC)

Hey, amigo[edit]

For the record, are you of the opinion that Childlove movement should be deleted? blankfaze | (беседа!) 15:16, 20 Jul 2004 (UTC)

No. Not at all. I just think it is a subject with too many emotions for me, and as such I won't go near it. Mike H 15:18, Jul 20, 2004 (UTC)
All right. That's what I thought. blankfaze | (беседа!) 15:20, 20 Jul 2004 (UTC)


You ought to protect your User page. RickK 22:12, Jul 20, 2004 (UTC)

I asked Angela to do it for me. It is now done. Mike H 22:12, Jul 20, 2004 (UTC)

Vandal reverts[edit]

Thanks for that. And incidentally, 4000 contributions! Jesus Christ. Congrats on your fine work. Best, [[User:Meelar|Meelar (talk)]] 00:10, 2004 Jul 21 (UTC)

Hey, which 7 year-old contributor are you talking about? Exploding Boy 03:51, Jul 21, 2004 (UTC)

-- Damn, bitch, thought I'd passed you! I'll get you one of these days! - blankfaze | (беседа!) 00:52, 22 Jul 2004 (UTC)

It is not a competition! Ever hear the aphorism "quality over quantity", whore? 01:55, 22 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Television Schedules Update[edit]

Wow. Those are so not getting done this week. I will try to set some time down to finish at least ONE tonight. Mike H 00:04, Jul 23, 2004 (UTC)

Got your note[edit]

Hi. You're right that we haven't crossed paths in a while. My 'pedia-ing has been a little limited recently. I've kept an eye on my watchlist but my contributions are way down since I started a new phase of a non-'pedia project. I see you've been busy though. 4000 contributions! That's pretty darn good. Keep it up (not like you need me to tell you that). --Rory 03:02, Jul 23, 2004 (UTC)

Christian Campbell[edit]

Have a look, and see if theres anything you can do. I've noticed you like tv, and gay stuff, so I figured this would prob be your area. Sam [Spade] 06:40, 23 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Don't Cry For Me Argentina?[edit]

Hi, thanks for the talk msg. I checked the sleeve notes for Evita and there's no comma in the title of the song, or in the Guinness Book of Hit Singles. Still it makes no difference to me, so little point changing it back if you disagree... Smb1001 09:12, 23 Jul 2004 (UTC)

"stand to sense"[edit]

I wouldn't know. I can kinda guess what your trying to say, but I'm not familiar w that turn of phrase. Anyways, good looking out on that article, Cheers, Sam [Spade] 16:12, 23 Jul 2004 (UTC)

That’s what I figured you ment, but I'm not so sure I believe in "gay". I have yet to fully explain the evolutionary, sociobiological basis for such a phenomena. Best as I can grok, it is a response to overcrowding, unpleasant culture, and other environmental phenomena. While on the one hand I appreciate the theoretical benefit presented to myself by others who are generally unwilling to breed, my altruism questions their well-being. I am a spiritual person, but that doesn't factor in so very much here, my thought being that which you do in private w consenting others is between you, them and God. If you can make your peace w him, and I don't know anything about it, who am I to judge? Begs the question of course, how to respond to bold pronouncements of alternative sexuality. Myself, I oppose all bold pronouncements of sexuality, alternative, standard, what-have-you. It strikes me as a dubious state of affairs when I have the misfortune to become aware of the nocturnal deeds of others with whom I am not myself intimate. In conclusion, I think Clinton had it right w "don't ask, don't tell". ;) Sam [Spade] 16:38, 23 Jul 2004 (UTC)
Well thats why I said "generally unwilling". I've known plenty of gay folks, and the number who had some interest in having children was fairly high. Surrogate, artifical insemination, cloning or what-have-you, its a far less likely sucessful breeding plan than the traditional method, and carries w it its own particular difficulties. Surrogate mom's often want to be moms, etc... Anyhow I don't claim to have alot of particularly convincing advice on the subject other than "every last redneck does not need to know what you do in your spare time", and "think deeply, pray deeply, and love your neighbor (but don't tell me exactly how you love him, please ;)". Sam [Spade] 16:57, 23 Jul 2004 (UTC)


Looks good to me. RickK 23:47, Jul 24, 2004 (UTC)


I'm sorry. - Mark 15:40, 26 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Cliff and Nina[edit]

Good job. RickK 18:33, Jul 26, 2004 (UTC)

Kris Aquino[edit]

While I don't entirely disagree that some work is needed, you might want to take a closer look at the history of this article, where you'll find that a small number of anon users (more likely one using multiple IPs) have repeatedly posted the extremely POV material you saw. Making it more NPOV will likely only provoke the vandal further, though if I can find a half-hour, I plan to try. - Kenwarren 21:21, Jul 27, 2004 (UTC)

T H Kerry[edit]

>You CAN quote something on videotape.

I suppose. But "quoted as saying" connotes a lot more room for the quote to have been bent or falsified or "put in my mouth" than does "videotaped saying". I'm convinced she said "unamerican traits" because I saw the video. If she's having hissies that "traits" was changed to "activites", she should say that. So far it looks like she's denying she said "unamerican" which is just whacked Frootloops. 23:32, 27 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Read what I changed it to. She didn't deny using the term, she denied calling political conventions unAmerican. RickK 23:34, Jul 27, 2004 (UTC)


Well, I'm having a bit of trouble on Wikipedia_talk:Manual_of_Style_for_Japan-related_articles - If you think I'm making good points, please say so. WhisperToMe 06:19, 28 Jul 2004 (UTC)


I know I've boasted about this before, but I did see her once, in full costume, standing in the Granada canteen. Saw Ken Barlow too, but he was less interesting. This was in 1976. Deb 16:51, 29 Jul 2004 (UTC)

did you know[edit]

i removed the top entry because it was my best estimate that that was the one which had been there the longest. it was a rule of thumb guess, and if it was wrong i apologize. Thepedestrian 19:23, Jul 29, 2004 (UTC)

The vandal[edit]

Mike, any idea who this Hada-i person is? As per my comments at WP:VIP it would simplify things if we knew. I'm thinking you are a much closer associate of Hadal than I am (I do like Hadal, but our paths rarely cross) and might have an idea of what he's been embroiled in recently? Just a thought. Jwrosenzweig 23:13, 29 Jul 2004 (UTC)


Hi, Custom, if I may call you so. After we spoke on IRC yesterday I went look at some of your articles, and I think you're doing really good work. Few of the older soaps have aired in this country, so many articles are highly exotic to me, but that only makes it more fun. :-) I understand your concern about college, the transition is an angst-inducing business. Still, not to sound uplifting or anything, but many people do very soon become happier at college than they ever were at school. (Being an academic myself, I expect to see it happening with my nervous new students again over the next term.) Anyway, it was nice talking with you.--Bishonen 11:57, 30 Jul 2004 (UTC)


The article is a good start. It seems to be accurate based on the trivial knowledge I know about the station. Good work! :) --seav 21:41, 30 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Farthen Dûr & Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/Farthen Dûr[edit]

Heya... please take a look at the improvements to the article. Thanks! - UtherSRG 02:55, 31 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Entertainment Unit[edit]

I feel you took my original reply the wrong way. I really see no harm in adding trivia with limited appeal. I mean, who's it hurting? If yer don't like it, just don't read it. It were just a harmless piece of fun. If this is the policy, why not get started on the Simpsons page? Or the Beatles? I mean, who is going to search for Mal Evans? or My Two Cents? . I can't imagine too many people searching for Ferdinand de Lessops either, but it seems reasonable that he should be on. I don't think this whole encyclopedia thing can be harmed by little bits of useless trivia, connected to more important matter. I'm not going to bother appealing for it to be un-deleated. I left a fairly harsh message on the deletion board. Just so you know, it dosn't really apply to you. I thank you for appealing for it to be at least moved elsewhere, if you'd just told me I would gladly have removed it, edited it and put it elsewhere. My only real complaint is the seeming hypocritical method you used. At the top of this page, you appeal for people to refrain for being condecending towards you, and yet you blatently went behind my back, gave me no notice and then seemingly mocked the responce I gave in a very paternalistic manner, which frankly, I don't deserve. Thanks for the efforts to maintain my work you made (I'm not being sarcastic). --Crestville 00:55, 1 Aug 2004 (UTC)
