Thanks for reverting that mess on the article bicycle. I dont know how that happened. It seems that spamers used my wikipedia account to put those commercial links. How else could it happen? I never put those links. trust me. But this is hurting and scary because I have been abused by spamers. Is there a solution for this mess. Robin klein 04:34, 20 Dec 2004 (UTC)
I checked the history of the files that I edited on 19th of december 2004 and realised that spammers have used my account to add commercial links to several of the edits that I made. How is this possible. These articles were: Babel, Terry Fox, Payroll,Etruscan civilization, shark

Quarto by email
Hi Omegium, a new mailing list has been set up to distribute news about the Wikimedia foundation, specifically at the moment to publicise Quarto. I saw your name on the quarto talk page requesting a copy by email, and I think this mailing list is how we're going to do it for the moment. It'll be a html email, which I've added to the Quarto talk page m:Talk:WQ. Mailing list is called Foundation-news-l (We also need translators!) Cheers w:User:Cormaggio

"GP's #3 hull" etc.
I'm writing to apologize on behalf of the native-English-speaker contingent, or at least the Niven fans within it, for it having taken so long for anyone to fix the grammar in references to e.g. the General Products #3 hull. It should have looked wrong to some native speaker who cared enuf to fix it, before 11 years had passed (even tho many Americans -- at least -- are hazy about e.g. the distinction between singular vs. plural possessives, and especially the logically inconsistent rules for possessive pronouns vs. nouns)!
The preceding 'graph is only the first 1/3 of what i've so far (bis jetzt, i think) written. And i now realize i should not write more unless you would like me to attempt to explain, or better yet, answer specific questions, especially about the logic. Thanks for contributing, especially in a "2nd language". And "give my regards to" THE (which i would not confuse, for more than 10 seconds per occasion, with ETH).
