Ahaaa, you saw me
I passed your article as GA. See Talk:Paracetamol toxicity/GA1. I didn't notify you earlier, as I really could not find fault with the article other than a few copy edits I made myself. Good work! Regards, —Mattisse (Talk) 03:39, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

- a fine Xmas message for all of us to be mindful of.... hehehe. Cheers, Casliber (talk · contribs) 23:06, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
Righty-ho, time to bite the bullet and get this damn stone in my shoe out. I am not sure I can reference all the toxicology stuff noted here easily and would be extremely grateful if you had any at hand :) Onward mycology soldiers... :) Casliber (talk · contribs) 05:32, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
Re: Sea urchin vandalism
Hi. I noticed that you have contributed to an SNRI page and about Serotonin. I was wondering if you have any thoughts on the Paroxetine page. In my view, warnings about "suicide ideation" belong in a sub section and not the opening paragraph. Why is it that the risk of "suicide ideation" gets highlighted, but not the reduction in risk of actual suicide. Here is an article you may find useful: http://www.cleveland.com/nation/index.ssf/2008/11/after_2_decade_decline_teen_su.html —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 17:00, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
Looks good. Regarding toxicity and epidemiology, I came to the conclusion that the differing toxicity and involvement of various benzodiazepines in overdose is to a good part explained by
1) the use of what is perceived and sold as "sleeping tablets" in suicide attempts and overdose situations, also mixed with other substances or used in the bath tub etc.
2) the use of what is perceived as "strong" benzodiazepines in mixed intoxications, to "fortify" opioids and alcohol etc. for recreational purposes.
It seems with these two constant elements the epidemiological results are consistent. So my conjecture is that the statistically resulting toxicity, toxicity by coma grading, toxicity by post mortem, is to a good part a "cultural" phenomenon, driven by local fads and habits, rather than a toxicological phenomenon, to be explained by different toxicities. Of course the above is WP:SYN. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:48, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
Hi. I put the merge tag on the Latrodectus katipo articles, rather than doing what you have done, because, I believe, the history of Black katipo, as well as the content, should be merged. Regards, cygnis insignis 12:56, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
- Hey there, I Hadn’t merged anything before but it didn’t seem very controversial and as katipo is unlikely to have a huge discussion about a proposed merge, I thought I would just do it (there would probably be tags on the page forever if not). Anyway, I followed what Wikipedia:Merge states, i.e. paste any useful information into the destination page and delete all the text from the source page and replace it with
#REDIRECT [[PAGENAME]]. Based on what I read in WP:Merge I do not think it is possible to merge 2 histories together, but if it is, let me know and I will go about getting it done. Cheers. - Mr Bungle | talk 00:10, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
- Ta for the reply. You have followed the current guideline correctly, I believed that the complex problem of mergers and attribution was an open question. Your omission of step 3 is trivial in this case, as my earlier edit summaries contains the merged articles names. I also think a note on the talk page is good practice. Merging histories is possible, but it may be impractical. Anyway, back to content discussion ...
- I was a bit lazy by the time I came to this species of Latrodectus, I should have opened a talk page section instead of plonking a tag on it, but I couldn't ignore the problems that you may have resolved. I would have come back to it and addressed the issues arising from the recent paper, if no one else did, but (secretly) hoped that an active contributor would fix things in an article which was partially outside of my scope. If I had, I would have done some or all of the following: given greater prominence to the junior synonym (assuming it is) and its common name 'Black katipo', explained the relevance to its conservation status, etc., fixed the possible copyvio by a 'redlinked' user a few months back, then moved the whole lot to the name that accords with NPOV, RS, OR and V. You may wish to move any or all of this discussion to the talk page, if you think it productive. Cheers for your improvements, cygnis insignis 07:04, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
Hello, Mr Bungle. Considering your contributions to the Ethylene glycol poisoning and Antifreeze articles, I was wondering if you would not mind commenting on the talk page discussion I linked to in the header above about this. I would very much appreciate you weighing in on this matter. Flyer22 (talk) 20:33, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
book lookup time :)
You had the Bresl book (?) on poisonous fungi, I'd be insanely grateful if you could ruffle thorugh its pages and determine whether we've missed any fungi here on the List of deadly fungi...? Casliber (talk · contribs) 14:04, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
I suggest that in the future you might discuss a series of planned edits, as you made on various chemicals today. If you think that something is systemically missing in a whole series of articles others might want to participate in the revisions or there may be policy issues worth reviewing. The usual discussion site is Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Chemicals. Just a suggestion...--Smokefoot (talk) 17:35, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
- Responding to your note: Above, I was suggesting that if you find multiple chemistry articles deficient in a similar way, you might call the problem to the attention of the editors in the chem area. The specific concern is that one can write pages on hazards for any large-scale chemical compound, and one can similarly write pages about various counter-measures. And all such statements can be backed by hundreds of official references. Exacerbating this potential verbal deluge, most such material is relatively easily, searched, digested, and regurgitated by a normally literate person. So you can imagine that editors covering the chem area are struggling with how to balance pertinent safety information vs readability. The challenge is a difficult one. Also we are mindful of the Wiki admonition that we not give advice (Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not). One approach that we have taken is to steer away from repeating content that can be found in the MSDS. Another measure is that when the toxicity/hazards become great, that we spin off an article on such (e.g. carbon monoxide poisoning). So getting back to my main message, if you see a systematic problem in the discussions of chemical hazards, then chem-editors would be most interested hearing your views and debating solutions. By the way, I am not complaining about you. Thanks, --Smokefoot (talk) 01:15, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

This image: [:http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:91SantaClaraMike.jpg] still appears to be waiting for an OTRS ticket; was one ever sent? Cheers. Rodhullandemu 18:35, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
- Thanks for getting back to me; it's a good thing you still have the email in "Sent Items", and it's probably a good idea to forward the email to the permissions email address, and stress that these images have since been moved to Commons, otherwise they are at risk of deletion. The links you gave me on my Talk page sill be adequate for the team to locate them. Hope that works for you, cheers. Rodhullandemu 22:29, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the note, I'll follow your advice. My recollection was that the toxicity was about 10 g for an adult, but I need to check. Will do so tonight. Since others would be interested in our comparing data and sources, maybe it would be better if we conduct this conversation at Talk:Fluoride toxicity. Cheers, --Smokefoot (talk) 01:08, 19 May 2011 (UTC)
Cicuta - dialysis does / does not
There is a sentence at the end of the article Cicuta that just plain confuses me. Seems to say yes and no at the same time. I can see you made an elaborating edit which seems to have changed the meaning of the sentence.

- Hemodialysis does not, however, remove cicutoxin form the blood.
06:54, 17 August 2009 the edit
- However, hemodialysis, hemoperfusion or other extracorporeal techniques do remove cicutoxin from the blood and are therefoe not useful in enhancing elimination.
