Snack time[edit]

Well I had a mind to carry out the merger regarding The Safety of Eating Raw Cookie Dough, but I see you've already incorporated the on-topic content. I was going to suggest the original be deleted rather than redirected per the result of the AfD, but it occurs to me that that may cause attribution issues, given your edit summary attribution. Am I correct in assuming that's what you had in mind? Or just that redirects are cheap maybe? GMGtalk 15:23, 18 December 2017 (UTC)

GreenMeansGo: Yes on both counts. Neutralitytalk 02:39, 20 December 2017 (UTC)

RfC at Robert E. Lee[edit]

As a recent contributor to Talk:Robert E. Lee, you are receiving this notice for an RfC at of a proposed restatement of a wp:primary source which contains more points than the existing block quote from the letter. The primary source is a 1856 letter of Lee’s to his wife from Texas as found at Alexander Long, Memoirs of Robert E. Lee: his military and personal history (1886), p. 82-83. Opponents have seen wp:original research in the proposal as drawing conclusions not found in the primary source. A rewrite of the first proposal follows an edit break.

Global Research / Zero Hedge Citations[edit]

Did you even read the articles I cited? They have links to legitimate documents, unlike what was on the "Enlargement of NATO" page before. Snooganssnoogans even got rid of the Forbes article explaining how Western-based polls show that Crimeans are happier being back in Russia and the video of Obama admitting on CNN to having an involvement in the Ukrainian coup against their democratically elected president, and all that means nothing to you? — Preceding unsigned comment added by PKDL (talkcontribs) 22:09, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

PKDL: Please read the policies I linked on your talk page. If you want to have a further discussion on article content, go to Talk:Enlargement of NATO and try to gain consensus. And the Forbes piece wasn't an article, but rather a "contributor blog" piece; these articles aren't written by staff. See WP:RSN and search the archives for more info. Neutralitytalk 22:21, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

There were citations and sources on that "Forbes" piece, buddy, and yes, it was an article. Does it matter if it was written by official staff or not? If memory serves me right, a year to this day, The Washington Post published an article written by official staff, both with the "reporter" designation, that was about how "Russia" (whatever that means) hacked the Vermont electrical grid with no evidence, not even in the opinion section, they just lied, got everyone up in arms over that lie, and they still haven't changed the misleading headline or removed the article entirely, and of course they did not make an official story correcting their mistake so everyone got informed about the truth of the matter. Here is that masterpiece of an "article" right here if you weren't paying attention a year ago or since:

PKDL: You seem to have an axe to grind. We're not here for that. Neutralitytalk 03:04, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

You're telling me, bud. Nice talking around the subject there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by PKDL (talkcontribs) 06:32, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

Konni Burton Edits[edit]

I've seen that youve undone my edits made to the legislative history of Konni Burton. After looking into it, I see that bill texts would be considered an original source, so you are correct for that. My question is, could I repost this information if the legislative history is sourced by media outlets such as The Texas Tribune, The Dallas Morning News, Houston Chronicle, etc.? TxStateAlum17 (talk) 20:37, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

TxStateAlum17: Sure, assuming all the text is supported by the source. Neutralitytalk 22:29, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
