Source for Jimbo quote[edit]

CH, you recently wroye in the General Relativity Talk page:

While as of June 2006 there are still some Wikipedians knowledgeable about gtr, given what I view as the failure of WP as a source reliable information (see recent comments by our founder, Jimbo Wales),

Could you give me a reference for this quote? Also, have you discussed the possibility of creating a Physics wiki, one that has a measure of formal peer review, disallows all edits by anonymoys users, and requires registered users to give a valid e-mail? If Jimbo weren't so insistent on anarchy (literally) Wikipedia could have had a chance to be useful. As it turns out, however, it has sunk into a morass that can never be redeemed. RK 12:42, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks, Robert. RK 12:42, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

I'm looking for it myself. I missed the NY Times article, unfortunately, but I've seen several [articles] which mention a St. Petersburg Times interview in which their most famous netizen allegedly said that Wikipedia cannot now or ever be used as a reference (e.g. for schoolwork), which to my mind is inconsistent with the reason I came here: to create an encyclopedia. I am still searching Google and places in WP for a working link to the text of this interview. ---CH 21:22, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Criticism of Haredi Judaism[edit]

Hello RK! I had mentioned in Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Judaism that until recently Modern Orthodox Judaism was the only major denomination with a criticism section. I notice in particular that Haredi Judaism doesn't have a criticism section. Perhaps you might be interested in created a section explaining the difficulties people to the left of Haredi Judaism have with it(properly sourced of course). Best wishes. And perhaps the way their leaders talk about other denominations might be one of the issues of concern. --Shirahadasha 22:33, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Merges, moves[edit]

_ _ Hi, didn't notice your return until just now; welcome back.
_ _ While i haven't looked to see whether you at least preserved the former text, your conversion into a Dab of Avodah Zarah amounts to either a cut-&-paste move or a bootleg deletion. The previous revisions belong as part of the page-history of Idolatry in Judaism, even if the text is redundant. Don't do that.

the Good Book[edit]

Hag Sameach!

Do you think it is controversial to claim that Jews call their Tanakh "the Bible?" I don't. Do you think it is controversial to claim that "the Bible" refers only to the combined "Old Testament" and "New Testament," i.e. is a term that refers to the sacred scriptures of Christians (but not Jews)? I do, but this is precisely the claim Home Computer is making on the Bible talk page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Bible#Current_layout

Feel free to weigh in. And please watch out for Home Computer's attempts to change the article. Slrubenstein | Talk 10:59, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

Your Trolling[edit]

Stop trolling or I will need to block you. RobertKaiser 03:49, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

Re.:Greenpeace[edit]

You asked who considers Greenpeace terrorists. All of the civilized world does. When France initiated some nuclear testing, Greenpeace tried to interfere, and got one of their boats shot all to hell, it sank. In the US, the FBI, other law enforcement considers them terrorists. See Operation Backfire (FBI) for more and/or go to this link: www.fbi.gov/page2/jan06/elf012006.htm which is the last known info on this law enforcement operation, status of which is Active/Ongoing. All of the known "Eco-Terrorists orgs and those not mentioned here are being infiltrated, to take them down. IF you're in one of these orgs, its best to GET OUT and wait for the heat to die down. 65.163.112.128 (talk) 17:08, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

User:RobertKaiser vs User:RK[edit]

Hi: Who is User:RobertKaiser and who is User:RK? Are you one and the same or different users or both? IZAK 09:14, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

This user is not Robert Kaiser. He is a troll, pretending to be me.


If you have evidence of tolling, suggest you report this on WP:AN. If the primary issue is the name suggest WP:RFCN. Shabbat Shalom, --Shirahadasha 20:53, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Stop pretending to be me[edit]

Stop pretending to me, it is considered to be trolling and I will block you for it. RobertKaiser 21:44, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Back off RobertKaiser. You are being disruptive. Yuser31415 (Editor review two!) 02:31, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

Could you review these articles?[edit]

Could you have a look at these articles and their talk?

I feel the articles are extremely well sourced and balanced. I'd like somebody else to remove the tags. Please look at my last versions, because I have run up against somebody from the evolution/creation universe who wants to pick a fight. --Metzenberg 03:10, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

List of pubs[edit]

As someone who has contributed to the talk page discussion on List of publications in philosophy and/or that article's previous deletion debate, I thought you might be interested in participating in its new nomination for deletion which can be found here.

Serious discussions about using the names Reform vs. Progressive Judaism[edit]

Hi RK: Please see the present discussions at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Countering systemic bias/open tasks#WikiProject Judaism needs help - geographical bias concerns. Your input would be greatly appreciated. (They are the result of discussions that unfolded at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Judaism#Concern about duplicating Reform and Progressive labels.)

An interesting AfD[edit]

Hello. You may be interested in commenting on this Afd and contributing to it's associated discussion.Ghanadar galpa (talk) 22:36, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

Question for RK[edit]

I am interested in some information you wrote in the "Semicha" article. You wrote "A minority of Jewish writers maintain that a form of the original semicha continued to be practiced in small numbers as late as the eleventh century CE"( Posted by RK, 21:33, 24 August 2004).

This comment has recently been removed for lack of citation.

I am very interested in the source of this information or anything else at all you may be able to share with me about it.

You may answer on the Talk Page or feel free to contact me at the following email address: CWatchman2@gmail.com

Thank you very much,

Binding of Isaac article name change[edit]

Thanks for your comments and contributions at Binding of Isaac. About 3 weeks ago, I proposed to change the name of the article to "Sacrifice of Isaac" at Talk:Binding of Isaac#Name of this article, but so far haven't seen any response. I plan to go ahead and rename the article on March 20, 2008 unless there are objections. I invite you to visit the article and submit any comments you have on the matter. Thanks! --Bryan H Bell (talk) 17:42, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Five editors have responded to the proposal described above. Four oppose and one is neutral. The consensus is opposed to the name change. I'll therfore leave the article as currently named ("Binding of Isaac") and consider the matter closed. --Bryan H Bell (talk) 03:00, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Rebbe Nachman of Breslov

Hello. I saw that you once edited the above page. I have decided to submit this article to peer review in order to qualify for Featured Article status. Would you kindly click on the above link and add your comments or suggestions? Thank you, Yoninah (talk) 21:30, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Many many thanks[edit]

You did a wonderful job in your section on 20th & 21st century commentaries. You trod in waters that I was afraid to tread in. I avoided the moderns by only including commentaries printed in a Mikraot Gedolot, and I didn't realize that would confine me to Hebrew. Now I feel free to put in sections about Nechama Leibovits, Umberto Cassuto, etc. Again, thanks for pulling me out of a rut as well as the research you did.

I am going to make a few changes though. I don't think the appendices to the Etz Hayim belong in this article. Also I don't know how much overlap there is between the Etz Hayim and the new JPS commentary/translation. Just know that nothing I say is written in stone, and I'm almost always open to suggestions. Phil_burnstein (talk) 04:08, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Torah Judaism and Daat Miqra[edit]

Robert, thanks for giving me the benefit of the doubt. As far as the Daat Miqra goes, I wish there were an English translation. That would be an incredible thing. Unfortunately, none exists that I know of. That'd be a fascinating project, though. I wonder if Mossad Harav Kook would be interested in it. They do the Daat Miqra series, no? -LisaLiel (talk) 04:28, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Your user page[edit]

I found your old user page while checking out some old deleted contributions. I have history merged it, so that all edits are in one place. Hope you don't mind. Graham87 12:07, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Copyright question[edit]

Hi. Another contributor has noted a similarity between the page Hillel the Elder, which you contributed way back in 2003, and the Jewish Encyclopedia article, which bears a copyright notice of 2002. I have confirmed substantial duplication of text, so I've blanked the article pending some clarification of the matter. Can you help provide any clarification on this issue and the origin of this text? --Moonriddengirl (talk) 14:08, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Just noting for bypassers (since I have mailed the contributor): I've clarified this one for myself. Notwithstanding the copyright notice, the material is public domain. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 14:46, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Silver Bridge (bridge), and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Silver Bridge. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally moving or duplicating content, please be sure you have followed the procedure at Wikipedia:Splitting by acknowledging the duplication of material in edit summary to preserve attribution history.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists.

The Living Torah and Nach article[edit]

In the Living Torah and Nach article you wrote, "Rabbi Kaplan's translation has been criticised for mis-translating the text. The dispute comes about because Kaplan consciously attempted not to present a straight translation of the text, but rather interspersing the translation with later rabbinic commentary and Jewish law." You did not source this information. I am writing another article in which I quoted your above-mentioned statement. I was confronted about this statement and was asked for sources which I was unable to find. Could you please assist me in finding this source or sources?

Speedy deletion nomination of Silver Bridge Advisors[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Silver Bridge Advisors, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. —Unforgettableid (talk) 07:52, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Haggadah, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Enlightenment (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Gog and Magog[edit]

Hi RK. I just reverted an edit of yours at Gog and Magog, for reasons given in the edit summary - it was pretty hard to read for anyone not already acquainted with Rabbinic literature, and seemed to cover material already dealt with in the second para of the following sections. However, if you could do some research into more recent sources, it could lead to a useful stand-alone section section on Jewish treatment of Gog/Magog through to the modern period. Let me know if you'd like to take this on. PiCo (talk) 05:20, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
