Human mortality from H5N1[edit]

Neutrality[edit]

I reverted most of your rewrite of the lead of smoking. While it was appropriate to mention the addictive nature of many drugs that are smoked, your wording smacked of a political agenda. Please keep in mind that describing something that you might not approve of in words that are not overtly negative does not mean that it's positive, only that it's not negative.

Here's the text Peter reverted:

An industrially manufactured cigarette burning in an ashtray; today the most common form of smoking.

Smoking generally refers to tobacco smoking, an addiction marketed by tobacco sellers as a recreational activity, in which tobacco is burnt and the smoke inhaled. Tobacco smoking releases a highly-addictive substance from the tobacco, nicotine, which along with a host of debilitating and cancer-causing substances is absorbed through the lungs. Before its addictive and health-destroying properties were recognized, it was used in rituals. The most common method of smoking today is through cigarettes, either industrially manufactured marketed or rolled with loose tobacco and a rolling paper. Other forms, though less common, are pipes, cigars, bongs, and hookahs.

Smoking is one of the more common forms of addictive drug use, and the sale of tobacco products is as lucrative for the tobacco sellers as it is unprofitable for the smokers. Tobacco smoking is today by far the most common form of smoking and is practiced by over one billion people in the majority of all human societies. Less common drugs for smoking include cannabis and opium. Many drugs classified as hard narcotics like heroin and crack cocaine can also be smoked, but the use of these is limited to marginalized groups.

your edits on Particulate matter[edit]

could you please learn how to use the drop down citation template? in the left hand corner of your editing window. The ( not unwelcome) addition you made to Particulate matter were huge and messy as a result of your unconventional pasting. also they are, well, rather random and unorganized in the section. there are at least 8 studies about autism and PM exposure like the ones you added, so how did you choose these two? if yo arent sure how to edit, I advise just leave info on the talkpage and let someone else do it. Happy Holidays.--Wuerzele (talk) 03:15, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia and copyright[edit]

Control copyright icon Hello Ocdcntx, and welcome to Wikipedia. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and a cited source. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college-level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • If you own the copyright to the source you want to copy or are a designated agent, you may be able to license that text so that we can publish it here. However, there are steps that must be taken to verify that license before you do. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are public domain or compatibly licensed), it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at the help desk before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied or translated without attribution. If you want to copy or translate from another Wikipedia project or article, you can, but please follow the steps in Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. ‑Ugog Nizdast (talk) 15:21, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages.

June 2016[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia and thank you for your contributions. I am glad to see that you are discussing a topic. However, as a general rule, talk pages such as Talk:European Parliament are for discussion related to improving the article, not general discussion about the topic or unrelated topics. If you have specific questions about certain topics, consider visiting our reference desk and asking them there instead of on article talk pages. Thank you.

Hi there,

Thanks for your edit to Climate Hustle. Just a quick heads up that see also sections typically don't include articles that are already linked in the text of the article. In this case, climate change denial is linked in the first sentence (as denialist, but still the same article). — Rhododendrites talk \\ 18:15, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

WOT Services Vandalism[edit]

Please do not claim companies still in existence have shut down unless you have proof from a reputable source. This can be interpreted as libel and places Wikipedia in danger. -213.152.161.229 (talk) 19:44, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
