Welcome from the Opera Project[edit]

Hello Nunquam Dormio, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay.

Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

Sea Pictures[edit]

Thank you for expanding Sea Pictures. I love those songs, and Janet Baker's recording.Frigoris 14:35, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

Alcoholism[edit]

Many thanks for your recent edits on Alcoholism. I had intended to make several of the changes that you did, but I tend to be...easily distracted, and you beat me to it. I'm hoping that one of the more "expert" editors involved will be able to provide the cite that you requested. Thanks again :) --Doc Tropics Message in a bottle 18:13, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

LOL, we were both working on the same sentence at the same time in the Alcoholism article. Rather than over-write your edit, I added mine to the talkpage. If you have time would you be willing to review and comment? Thanks! --Doc Tropics Message in a bottle 21:02, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

I tried to revert the nonsense added Happy Savage, but you beat me to it and I lost another edit conflict :) If you start to run up against the 3RR limit, just let me know and I'll help out. --Doc Tropics Message in a bottle 04:16, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Hi, there. Thanks for cleaning up the citations on this page, also. I do want to note that we split off the discussion about the Disease Theory of Alcoholism to its own page, and need to move all references, cites, and most text relating to that to that page, so much of the stuff you fixed will be moved there. I didn't want you to think that we were deleting stuff that you just worked on. Robert Rapplean 15:27, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Alcoholic beverages[edit]

You're welcome :) Good work on the article, by the way - it's really comprehensive, and you seem to have brought it up on your own! Cheers, Tangotango 13:51, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Jill Dando[edit]

Just wanted to say thanks for supporting me on the page Jill Dando. I was looking on the help pages to see if there is a specific wikipedia policy regarding the British/English question that could be cited to back up our side of it, but I can't find anything. Any ideas? Abc30 16:58, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Sockpuppets & Mattisse[edit]

I saw your request on User talk:Mattisse you should be aware that Matisse has three times been accused of sockpuppetry and in each case the allegations have been upheld. Wikipedia:Requests for checkuser/Case/Listerin Wikipedia:Suspected sock puppets/Mattisse, Wikipedia:Suspected sock puppets/Mattisse (2nd) --Salix alba (talk) 19:11, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

Ben Best page[edit]

By the time I responded to your request to comment, the sockpuppet page had already been archived. --The Transhumanist 05:14, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Much appreciated, Nunquam! --Ben Best (talk) 05:23, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

AlzheimUr CENTRE[edit]

Dear Nunquam, I have introduced a link of a weblog that deals with a Centre for treatment of Alzheimer and it has been removed. Do you know the reasons?

Sincerely, jsmjsm

"Our weblog emerges from the wish to offer an insight into the process of creating ideas for the AlzheimUr Centre. This centre is the reference for the region of Murcia (Spain) to provide a comprehensive attention to the illness of dementia. This weblog is an added tool to the project. Besides proofing the elaboration of different criteria that guide the development of the work, it tries to encourage interactivity with a system of commentaries. This is done in order to enrich the project with significant suggestions. Interdisciplinary collaboration is believed to be an essential part of the architect’s work. Working sessions every day are based on different programmes to develop specific contents and objectives. At the beginning of the first ten days the approach will be very intuitive. Then it will formulate the brief which, without being completely defined, suggests aims and important interests which the project will be based on." Quoted from the first post of the weblog.

I hope this answers your questions on purpose of the blog, location of the centre, etc. Definitely, the design for an Alzheimer Centre is something much more complex than deciding the colours of the dining plates. It requires the strong collaboration of architects, doctors, patients and families. There is not much information on it and this weblog is recollecting facts on this theme. It is a pity to remove information of Wikipedia under such misunderstandings, so I would appreciate if you reconsider your action or somebody more qualified gives an opinion. Sincerely, jsmjsm User talk:Jsmjsm

I saw you added the BU reference--however as has been mentioned on the Talk:Alzheimer's disease page, we have tried to limit references to potential treatments to those that have been validated on large populations. Although it is an interesting study, it was studied in a population of only 9 subjects and does not seem to meet the standard. --Chrispounds 13:03, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

Good Day to you Sir[edit]

Must say sorry about the mistake, must be getting old, sometimes forgetful, I must be more careful in the future. Tell me do you like Opera, becuase I could not but help draw an analogy between your user name and the aria Nessun Dorma I am an insomniac too. --Mr Maxim 21:05, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

Since I'm here to say "Thanks" as well I won't bother creating a new header. Good work on those cites in the Disease theory of alcoholism. Your talents and skills are much appreciated :) --Doc Tropics Message in a bottle 18:35, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

Trans fat[edit]

Hi there, just wanted to say that I agreed with your comment on the talk page, and am hoping you might provide a few suggestions there. -- cmhTC 17:09, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your comments a few days ago regarding Trans fat. I think it's ready to be a featured article. If you agree, please consider supporting it at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Trans fat. -- cmhTC 01:29, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Drug Rehabilitation - Amendments[edit]

I took you suggestion and posted a to the talk page for the link I wished to add. I have not received a response and have determined the listing 'California Department of Rehabilitation' is geared for individuals with disabilities and not drug rehabilitation. I am removing this listing and adding the link for aboutrecovery.com that contains information geared specifically toward drug rehab that was written and is sponsored by 501.3c non-profit organization.

Vandalism warning.[edit]

Mr Dormio,

I am editing here to inform you that an IP address you cited for vandalism, 139.78.50.124, belongs to a public machine at the library of Oklahoma State University.

I am making no requests either in favor of or against banning the address as I do not know the relevant conditions a ban implies. However, I felt that you should be informed as to the source of the address.

Regards,

Steve D., student. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 139.78.50.124 (talk) 04:22, 24 January 2007 (UTC).

WP:WINE[edit]

You've been doing a lot of great editing on wine articles and I wonder if you've considered joining the Wine Project? AgneCheese/Wine 09:07, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thank you for your kind comments regarding the FASD article. It is nice to have things noticed, and I notice all the work you have done on alcoholism and other topics as well. Take care.MLHarris 13:56, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Tresco[edit]

Hi. Thanks for your edits to the Tresco page. I don't know whether you know the Isles of Scilly, but if you do you'll know that describing Tresco as 'exclusive' is not actually hype, it's factually accurate. Without such an adjective the comparison with the other islands becomes fairly meaningless. However, I have changed it to 'upmarket' in an attempt to make it seem less like hype! Regards Dhmellor 16:02, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your response. Far from being taken from a brochure, it's a warning! Dhmellor 12:31, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Lou Kenton[edit]

I noticed that you recreated this article, which was originally deleted due to Wikipedia's speedy deletion criterion A7, which states that articles about people that don't explain how their subject is notable can be deleted. In order to reduce the chance that the article is deleted again, could you please alter the article to make the notability clearer? --ais523 11:38, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

It's usual to warn the creator when putting a speedy-delete tag on or speedily deleting an article; people have been criticised for failure to do so, but I don't think it's a requirement, technically speaking (of course, the spirit of the rules is more important than their letter). I try to always warn an article's creator when requesting its deletion, to give the creator some time to fix the problem; likewise most admins (but presumably not all, or this situation wouldn't have come up) will give the creator some time to fix a problem depending on the reason why deletion was requested. If you want to see the content of the deleted article for help recreating it, you could request that at Deletion Review, but if you know what you wrote and you can explain the notability recreating it is often easier. (I notice there's a {{notability}} tag, a non-deletion cleanup tag, on there at the moment; please read the notability requirements and explain notability, to reduce the chance of the article being deleted again in the future.) Hope that helps! --ais523 12:01, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

A WikiProject you may be interested in...[edit]

Hi there! I notice you're from Surrey - please take a look at Wikipedia:WikiProject Surrey, which I started earlier this afternoon. Cheers.--Vox Humana 8' 21:33, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Your message re East Africa Campaign[edit]

Thanks for your message, no worries. I thought it was something like that -- I've also seen some odd Wikipedia behaviour, such as articles reverting to previous versions, or changing without anything being shown in 'History'. Rexparry sydney 08:02, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Mary Seacole[edit]

Mary Seacole spent much of her life in Kingston, Jamaica but there is no mention in the article about her spending a significant amount of time in Kingston-upon-Thames. To be listed as a notable resident of Kingston-upon-Thames she would have had to have spent many years there, ideally she would have to have been born and/or brought up there. Are you sure about adding her name to the denizens of Surrey? JMcC 19:53, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Your username...[edit]

Nunquam dormio - "I never sleep"? Is there a rationale behind this, or have I mistranslated it? Just curious. :-) WaltonAssistance! 19:54, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi Walton, Yes, "I never sleep" is a correct translation. Rationale? Possibly "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance." - Thomas Jefferson
Good to see my Latin isn't as bad as I thought. As to Jefferson, I also admire some aspects of his philosophy - I guess, after John Stuart Mill, he's the most important figure in early libertarianism - and the quote you cited is particularly relevant to the present day IMHO. Thanks for your response. :-) Waltonalternate account 09:14, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Your Contributions to Aaron Barschak[edit]

Just a very big thank you and praise for your sources to Aaron Barschak. The article is currently going through Afd and a lot of people would not have bothered. If there was a barnstar for such devotion to wikipedia, then I would gladly give you one. Until then again thanks :-) Mike33 00:03, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi Mike, The article suffered at the hands a vandal who removed the external links and categories and subsequent editors did not restore it. Had it not been for this troll, the Afd debate probably wouldn't have arisen. Nunquam Dormio 13:50, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Re: HMS Raleigh

OK - I take your point about the comments on Abergele, but I was being serious about HMS Raleigh. I was there in 1980-81 & new recruits (like I was) DO get chased around by shouty blokes. OK, maybe the way I phrased it was a bit "colloquial" & I'll have to take that on the chin. HGowever, the other change I made should, surely, stand: I was correcting poor syntax & grammar. ;-) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.130.87.101 (talk) 13:20, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Welcome![edit]

Gladys[edit]

Hi Nunquam Dormio,
I changed the book reference on the Gladys Ripley page you wrote, because I believe the author of the book is Donald Brook and not (as you wrote) Donald Singer. At any rate, I have a copy of the same book which clearly IS written by Donald Brook! so I think that must be right. Hope so. if I'm wrong, please revert. best wishes, Eebahgum 22:06, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Re: Trip Johnson[edit]

You bet. I also went through his recent contributions and undid a great deal. If it gets out of hand I'm guessing someone will nudge an admin. Cheers, Albrecht (talk) 22:28, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Richard Henry Lee[edit]

I removed the link to a source by Stanley L. Klos from Richard Henry Lee twice now. Please see here and this on the massive spam links to Klos related sites of questionable reliability. Thanks, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 02:35, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your note. These sort of people get Wikipedia a bad name. Nunquam Dormio (talk) 08:10, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Re: Activities of User:NewYork1956[edit]

I will take a look at their contributions. However, it looks like you bit them pretty hard by hitting them with the final stock warning template; this is generally discouraged for everybody but IPs and our newest contributors. Regards, east.718 at 09:42, December 19, 2007

I warned him after he attempted to delete my comment on a discussion page [1]. Not the done thing. This was after many of his reversions elsewhere. He seems have a lot of 'form' with dubious images. Nunquam Dormio (talk) 10:37, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Julie Birch[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

An editor has nominated Julie Birch, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Julie Birch and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 22:00, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Replacing dash with "smiley face"[edit]

These blanks are gradually being filled in by members of the Wiki opera group.

Certainly more spacing is fine if you object to the "smiley face" look, but there seems to be little point in changing over all of the "Roles" boxes for every opera to "not known".

I support User talk:Whjayg's revert. Viva-Verdi (talk) 17:45, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Lord Kelvin[edit]

There wasn't a race in 1843 and there is no record of Kelvin (either under that name or William Thomson) in the excellent database provided with 'Battle of the Blues' [1] . I suspect that the official Boat Race website which you've cited may have used wikipedia without checking the sources. I have contacted them to chase down the truth of the matter.James of Putney (talk) 14:13, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

About user 207.70.141.45 (vandalism)[edit]

207.70.141.45 has recently vandalized Houston Astros article. I looked at the user's contribution and it's just full of vandalisms. Please block the ip address for the wikipedia, as it seems to do more harm than good. Thanks! Stevefis (talk) 22:56, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Trans fats[edit]

I see why you're guarded about the Enig article. It's apparently self-published, uses quotes full of ellipses, and doesn't cite its sources well. Can you chase down the assertions to verify them elsewhere?LeadSongDog (talk) 21:31, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

MG Enig is widely published in oil chemistry and nutrition going back to 1978. (see google scholar) including nine papers listed on PubMed. I don't see any problem with her credentials or notability. The article, though, is another matter. It attacks partially-quoted statements from ill-cited CSPI sources (old brochures, etc.) She also attacks the CSPI as (paraphrasing) a false front for the soy industry. She may be right, but I don't think that her assertions are verified here. If there's a serious debate there ought to be balancing POV. It would appear she's become an advocate for palm oils rich in Lauric acid (C12:0) as a healthier solid fat than PUFA. There's a fair literature to that effect. Of course to my mind that's a choice between bad or worse options, ignoring the availability of good ones (liquid oils). Still, everyone loves a cookie now and then, so there is value in knowing which solid fat is best--it's a discussion worth having.LeadSongDog (talk) 16:16, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Note: CC to RyRy
After reviewing the IP’s block log, talk page, and contributions - where I found vandalism since the previous block expired - I decided to block it for 6 months. —Travistalk 12:40, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Socks[edit]

Not really. If he's on the same IP then the autoblock will catch him - any other accounts he may have will be disabled. If he's hopping between lots of IPs then there's not a lot that can be done, except potentially semi-protecting the pages concerned. You could take it to Wikipedia:Requests for checkuser - there may be a range that he operates in which could be blockable... GBT/C 12:26, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

  • I dislike page protection and would prefer to avoid it. He is attacking talk page comments too and I really could not justify protecting talk pages :-( We shall see whether he doesn't get bored. He is wasting our time and energy but otherwise there is no problem. --Matilda talk 22:51, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Survey request[edit]

Hi,
I need your help. I am working on a research project at Boston College, studying creation of medical information on Wikipedia. You are being contacted, because you have been identified as an important contributor to one or more articles.

Would you will be willing to answer a few questions about your experience? We've done considerable background research, but we would also like to gather the insight of the actual editors. Details about the project can be found at the user page of the project leader, geraldckane. Survey questions can be found at geraldckane/medsurvey. Your privacy and confidentiality will be strictly protected!

The questions should only take a few minutes. I hope you will be willing to complete the survey, as we do value your insight. Please do not hesitate to contact me or Professor Kane if you have any questions.

Thank You, Sam4bc (talk) 17:23, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Site Funding info[edit]

Hello, I noticed you added who funds the sites for this reference:

Hanson, David J. Ph.D. "Temperance Movement Groups and Leaders in the U.S.". State University of New York. Retrieved 2008-05-17. ,

which used on some indiana history related articles. I was merely curious if this indicates the source is not reliable, if so I will endeavor to replace them. The site is manager by the State University of New York. I also curious how you are sure of this because the website claims the funding for the author comes from: "He has received alcohol research grants from federal and state agencies". It also states: "As one who does not require outside research funding, Dr. Hanson is free to draw whatever conclusions logic dictates without regard to whomever might be either pleased or offended." I am curious to your reasoning for adding this information. Thanks Charles Edward 22:43, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

My main problem is that the author has been linking / spamming to his sites (often using sock puppets), which are funded by DISCUS. See Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Spam#About 400 links to the two sites of one individual. Although it is a .edu site, that part of is funded by the drinks industry "The Distilled Spirits Council of the United States, Inc. provided an unrestricted grant that was used to fund this web site, for which funding also was received from other sources." (in Disclaimer).
Thanks for your prompt reply. That is an understandable reason. I will look for a better ref, but as an FYI it was me who added the references for Frank Hanly and the other Indiana History related articles. Thanks Charles Edward 23:03, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Funding is mentioned - you might consider adding it to the comment you've appended here. Tedickey (talk) 01:00, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for your edit, Tedickey. It was an improvement on mine. Nunquam Dormio (talk) 07:28, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
Here is the main discussion: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Spam#About 400 links to the two sites of one individual. Flowanda | Talk 01:23, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
I see (my inclination would be to remove the links which are added by known sock puppets, and leave the commentary out of the edits) Tedickey (talk) 01:42, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Hanson links[edit]

I removed the Candy Lightner citation because of WP:BLP sourcing policy. I don't think any of the citations should remain because even with a disclaimer, they don't meet WP:RS, but the disclaimers are a definite improvement, and the articles may be helpful in finding better sources. Flowanda | Talk 00:18, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

"Heaven Knows Why" ?[edit]

Thanks for your thanks, but I was grateful for the opportunity to return the favor after all that you have done for me against this individual. I looked at the links and noticed your comment "It seems he went through a 'phase', peaking in late 2006, of using sock puppets to link to his sites. Heaven knows why." I don't think that you need to look as far as Heaven for the answer. Early September 2006 was when you initiated two counter-attacks against the sock puppets: exposing the attacks against me and the pattern of link-spamming. It seems natural that this would cause some self-consciousness and reassessment by the attacker/spammer. --Ben Best (talk) 12:26, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice[edit]

Hi,

As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

Headlinese[edit]

If you're knowledgable on this subject, it would be helpful to rewrite the article starting from published sources about the subject and what they say. I was tempted to tag the article for deletion, but a few book searches indicate that there could be sources on which to base an article, so I tagged it for cleanup instead. WillOakland (talk) 04:45, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Oops[edit]

Sorry for this stray deletion of a few letters, which you corrected here. It apparently occurred while I was making another edit a few lines above. Cheers!  Frank  |  talk  14:15, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

How are we going to get Battles pages locked ?[edit]

Hi there, we really need to get something done to protect WWI battles pages from schoolkids. Allowing these pages to be open to such corruption is an insult to the men who suffered and died in these battles. Your attempt was rejected by the mods. How can we escalate this ? The German Wiki blocks updates to sensitive pages, why such a problem in the English wiki ? Rod Rcbutcher (talk) 14:02, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Rollback[edit]

Hello, Nunquam Dormio! Thanks for your efforts to fighting vandalism, but have you ever considered requesting for rollback? It's a much faster feature than using the undo button. Also, thanks for the reverting the page blanking on my user page.

IP Address 217.45.222.60[edit]

Hi Nunquam Dormio, I notice your comment on the Talk page of the above IP address suggesting that BT should be contacted in the event of vandalism. I'm not sure that such messages are helpful. Firstly, BT are most unlikely to do anything about it, unless we're talking criminal activity, which would be exceedingly unlikely on Wikipedia. Secondly, and more importantly, such messages may well scare off genuine editors who may come to Wikipedia perhaps on a casual basis. If the dynamic IP has previously been used for vandalism a new user may be deterred from editing for fear of being wrongly accused. Just a thought. Regards, MidnightBlue (Talk) 17:32, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Sorry?[edit]

I've noticed you've cleaned up one or two vandal-like things I've done, and I'd just like to say sorry, and that I should've not done it. -The Red Guy (I have no idea how to sign these things.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by The Red Guy (talkcontribs) 23:16, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Good catch[edit]

Thanks for reverting my vandalism warning. I am rarely so careless as to mix up two IPs, and I'm glad you caught it. Rivertorch (talk) 09:14, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

It's easy to do. Keep up the good work! Nunquam Dormio (talk) 09:27, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the message[edit]

Regarding the edit that I made on the article Silurian, I was just deleting redundant information. Maybe you could read the two sections climate and Silurian Aquatic Biota and you will see that information is redundant. I wasn't vandalizing, just trying to make the article an easier read.

Thanks

Christine Keeler photo[edit]

Please note that the standard applied for photos on Wikipedia is U.S. law, not anybody else's law; as set out in Wikipedia's non-free content guidelines.

It would be a nightmare if Wikipedia had to obey the content laws of every state in the world, no matter how restrictive or how nasty and censoring regime. Instead, therefore, Wikipedia is careful to keep no assets or servers outside the U.S. state of Florida; and takes U.S. law as its standard on all content questions.

Use of this photo is being claimed as Fair use under U.S. law, because it is being claimed that the use fulfills all the criteria required for fair use to be allowed under U.S. law.

Battle of Isandlwana[edit]

Third opinion requested to stop edit war between myself and Lord Saddler over lead in article. His position is that mentioning that the Zulus are armed with spears is biased - mine is that it is not biased.

Shackleford[edit]

Hello, I noticed that you added a footnote for 'crediting source of sentence' to a pub's web site in Surrey. The sentence as written, giving the derivation of the Shackleford name, was through sources located through google books and took a fair amount of research as I wanted to be sure I was accurate about the statement. I would never lift a sentence from a website. In fact, I suggest that the opposite is true. In any case, I will look up the sources I used and add the appropriate footnote. Thanks and regards, MarmadukePercy (talk) 11:01, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Vince Cable[edit]

Just a note to say congratulations for this edit - http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Vincent_Cable&diff=315870263&oldid=315812592. It's incredible that someone can add a superfluous and inaccurate quote (the Alan Duncan) without a source.... and then see it subsequently turn up in an article in The Guardian, in many blog articles and on the back of Cable's book. It's a ridiculous situation and I'm surprised that such libelous vandalism had legs. UFUU (talk) 02:23, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Alan Duncan is well-known for making witty / jocular / facetious comments, which sometimes get him into trouble. I'm surprised that such a comment gets wrenched out of context and presented as sober commentary. Nunquam Dormio (talk) 10:02, 25 September 2009 (UTC)
Indeed. To be honest, it was I who vandalised the page, thinking no one would take the quote seriously (i.e. he never said it) and it was suddenly everywhere. It just demonstrates the laziness of journalists, and maybe the fragility of Wikipedia. UFUU (talk) 14:30, 25 September 2009 (UTC)
If that's so, you should definitely go to Private Eye. I'm sure they'd have great fun with the Street of Shame! I did a Google timeline search on the phrase ""the holy grail of economic comment these days" and it does seem to appear first in October 2008, which supports your account. Nunquam Dormio (talk) 15:15, 25 September 2009 (UTC)
You two morons are both wrong; this comment was made by Alan Duncan MP in a Q&A when somebody asked him what he thought of the book; I watched the interview live on Channel 4 News. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.192.118.190 (talk) 03:24, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

I think that our prof of sociology is back on the alcohol articles. You may also want to comment on this project talk page.Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Medicine#Alcohol articles An editor is asking questions about the professor. I think that you know more background information than me about this.--Literaturegeek | T@1k? 04:49, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

I forgot to explain why I suspect the account. Most of the sockpuppets of David Justin were created in 2006 as was the account of the editor who showed up on alcoholism article today. Most of the sockpuppets of David Justin cited his personal website on talk pages and in articles. David Justin campaigns for lowering the alcohol age limit. Similar to David Justin this editor is playing down the risks of drinking in adolescence and cites David Justin's personal website.[2],[3] Your average editor is not going to have a POV on the safety of alcohol abuse in adolescence and cite David Justin's personal website. Furthermore that editor uses the phrase in the diff I just gave "correlation does not imply causation" and wiki links to the wiki article, Correlation implies causation. The phrase correlation does not imply causation is an educated scientific term so it is not likely to be some 14 or 15 year old POVing on their alcohol abuse. The correlation/causation argument was also used by sockpuppets of David Justin,[4],[5]. This editor has made some edits in 2006 unrelated to alcohol so it is possible that they are not connected but when I saw this editor citing David Justin's personal website as well as playing down the risks of alcohol use during adolesence red flags went up in my mind. I wonder has David Justin created a lot more sockpuppet accounts that we do not yet know about which he has done a handful of edits to articles unrelated to alcohol and then ressurects them periodically? Unfortunately sockpuppet investigations won't work because ip logs on wikipedia only go back as far as 3 months. I really hope the old drama is not going to come back. What are your thoughts?--Literaturegeek | T@1k? 07:57, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Another account[edit]

You may remember this account,Special:Contributions/Linda,LCADC all of their edits were minimising the harmful effects of alcohol by selectively quoting in the same way as the sociologist the medical literature on alcohol and cancer, eg listing all the cancers alcohol is not associated with, quoting directly out of sources etc just like David Justin to try and minimise the harm. They were last active as late as September the 29th 2009 on wikipedia,[6],[7] so I think our sociologist still keeps an eye on these articles. Check out linda's contribs and you will see what I mean.--Literaturegeek | T@1k? 11:42, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Sorry for filling your talk page up all of a sudden lol. The LCADC letters stand for Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor. How many drug and alcohol counselors are there out there who are going to devote basically every edit to promoting alcohol and downplaying its risks? I think that they are not who they say they are.--Literaturegeek | T@1k? 13:33, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Hi Nunquam Dormio,

I have changed an edit you made in the Grantham article under 'Notable people' in 2008. I'm sure your edit was made in good faith, but through investigation I believe the original entry that you tweaked was suspect. I have added reasons for removal on the Talk:Grantham page, and am informing you through courtesy.

London Wikimedia Fundraiser[edit]

Good evening! This is a friendly message from Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry, inviting you to the London Wikimedia Fundraising party on 19th December 2010, in approximately one week. This party is being held at an artistic London venue with room for approximately 300 people, and is being funded by Ed Saperia, a non-Wikipedian who has a reputation for holding exclusive events all over London. This year, he wants to help Wikipedia, and is subsidising a charity event for us. We're keen to get as many Wikimedians coming as possible, and we already have approximately 200 guests, including members of the press, and some mystery guests! More details can be found at http://ten.wikipedia.org/wiki/London - expect an Eigenharp, a mulled wine hot tub, a free hog roast, a haybale amphitheatre and more. If you're interested in coming - and we'd love to have you - please go to the ten.wikipedia page and follow the link to the Facebook event. Signing up on Facebook will add you to the party guestlist. Entry fee is a heavily subsidised £5 and entry is restricted to over 18s. It promises to be a 10th birthday party to remember! If you have any questions, please email me at chasemewiki at gmail.com.

Hope we'll see you there, (and apologies for the talk page spam) - Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry (talk) 23:37, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Borderline spam.
I too am curious as to why this was removed; it seemed to me to show people from surrounding towns that we in Kingsclere have aquired a rather lovely addition to our already beautiful village; I have just looked at the Wikipedia page for Burghfield, a village nearby, which lists every single shop that exists there!

I opened a discussion a while ago. I would not have enough knowledge to edit this article but I know what is not encyclopaedic Gnevin (talk) 08:33, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

Nunquam, would you be willing to provide some references for this material? Although I'm not a military historian or a veteran contributor, it seems to me that it would not be that difficult to integrate much of this information into the article. I think that first someone should provide the references, and then we can work on moving the information to the proper places in the article.JDefauw (talk) 02:13, 10 August 2012 (UTC)JDefauw

Sea Pictures history query[edit]

Hi there,

Thanks for your many contributions to the page on Elgar's Sea Pictures.

I noticed that you contributed the line about the songs originally being written in high keys for soprano.

I want to find out more about the original keys, the transposition process (whether it involved any other rearrangement) and related issues regarding the composition of the cycle. Just wondering where you found that information?

Thanks very much!

Ben Hogan
