Excellent Work[edit]

I think your articles are nicely written and well thought out. From the articles I've read so far, they don't seem one sided at all. If my son could write as well as you do, I'd be clicking my heels. Keep up the good work. Paradigmbuff 02:06, Jan 12, 2005 (UTC)


Ollieplatt[edit]

I'll keep an eye on him. He's a troll. RickK 06:56, Jan 17, 2005 (UTC)

Ollieplatt, too[edit]

from: Wikipedia:Administrators%27_noticeboard#Ollieplatt

Technical evidence found by Tim Starling confirms that Libertas has multiple sockpuppet accounts. See Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Libertas/Proposed decision#Sockpuppets 2.

Salazar, Ollieplatt, Razalah, Jennypratt, Suna, Dean12, Viewvista, Fylc, Billclinton, Anilingus, and Nutrosnutros are all sockpuppet accounts of one user (as acknowledged by technical evidence), likely Libertas.

Salazar et al[edit]

I've looked at a lot of the socks' "Contributions", and tried to clear-out the pov-pushing, but there's lots. (Sorry 'bout the Green Party page.) Tomorrow I want to look into Moro_Islamic_Liberation_Front && Nepalese_People's_War. Except for Ollie && Sal, I thinks the other puppets' damage is fixed. I only saw Ollie blocked, so I expect s/he's on a fixed IP, which should help. — Davenbelle 10:25, Jan 17, 2005 (UTC)

Martin or Michael Luther King?[edit]

I looked at the discussion on Martin Luther King Jr.'s name at birth, it seems that he was actually Michael? Anyway, I leave it up to you, though you should be aware that there is an inconsistency with the Martin Luther King, Sr. page. Please change both or not at all. Tedneeman 08:28, 19 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Libertas[edit]

FYI - Libertas and all sockpuppets are banned for a year (Wikipedia:Requests_for_arbitration/Libertas#Ban_for_disruptive_behaviour). Effective whenever a non-involved admin issues the block. --mav 00:33, 28 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Wikipedians who blog[edit]

Hi! if you have a moment, could you please see m:Wikinews and blogs to comment? We're interested in learning how Wikinews can work with bloggers; what they might be interested in, how they can take advantage of Wikinews, how they can contribute through their blogs, etc. Thanks! Amgine/talk

Chuck F's arbitration case[edit]

A final decision has been reached in Chuck F's arbitration case. See Wikipedia:Requests_for_arbitration/Chuck_F#Final_decision. --mav 00:28, 6 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

Some people say adding tags does no good. But I have to say thanks for "cleanup" tagging Council of Conservative Citizens. The old article was horrible, copied directly from the ADL, (and which was not a work of which they could be proud). Several weeks ago I wrote a beautiful, detailed article with many sources, which I promptly lost in a crash. Your tag gave me the incentive the write at least a better stub. Thanks for the push. Cheers, -Willmcw 01:31, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Craft unionism[edit]

Took your suggestion. Also took the liberty of erasing the curse of inaccuracy/POV template. Invite further comments. 24.126.41.116 04:05, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC) (who would sign in as Italo Svevo if this computer did not freeze every time I try to log in.

Chomsky[edit]

Hi Radicalsubversiv. Reverts are, by Wikipedia convention, marked as "minor" edits. While I could have simply reverted his re-insertion of the deleted information (not deleted by me, I might add), I did him a favour instead, and left it physically there while commenting it out. I also used edit summaries to explain why. If you'd prefer I could simply hit the revert button, then there'd be no question why the revert would be marked as "minor". Jayjg (talk) 21:45, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Again, I deleted no text, merely commented it out. If I had simply hit the revert buton, the net effect would have been the same, and the "minor" edit designation would have been automatic, but it would have been significantly less friendly. A revert is a minor edit any way you slice it. Jayjg (talk) 14:56, 11 Feb 2005 (UTC)

NLRB long long titles[edit]

I'll take your suggestion (again). But your comment "great work" is unintentionally ironic: I did this instead of the "real" work that I came to the office to do. Thanks all the same, without any irony on my part. Italo Svevo 06:45, 13 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Labor Wikiproject[edit]

I'm in favor of it, but what exactly does it mean? That we announce the project in order to attract contributors? Impose standards for content? List articles that need priority? Promote the good articles for recognition? Gather them up some way? I'm in favor of all of those things, but what is the process?

I'd also like to see more articles about other nations that appear to have been overlooked, Mexico in particular. Mexican union history is as rich and complex as that of the US, but we have nothing on the CTM and only a very brief piece on the PRI. Odd, considering the profusion of pages on the tiniest left sects in Sweden or the US. We may not be able to fill the gap by translating from other languages: the Spanish wikipedia has an article on Vicente Lombardo Toledano, http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vicente_Lombardo_Toledano, but no discussion of the 1948 rail strike in it and no page for the CTM. The PRI article itself is not much to speak of . . . but I digress. -- Italo Svevo 01:14, 14 Feb 2005 (UTC)

International Workers of the World -- is my face red! or maybe reformist pink! I am deeply appreciative of your sharp eyes. -- Italo Svevo 22:59, 25 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Calcutta -> Kolkata name change[edit]

Hi there. I noticed you voted in the Wikipedia:Naming policy poll to keep the Wikipedia policy of naming an article with the most familiar English name. You may not be aware that another attempt has begun to rename the Calcutta article to Kolkata, which is blatantly not the most common name of the city, whether it's official or not. If you want to vote on the issue you can do so at Talk:Calcutta. Cheers. -- Necrothesp 13:38, 5 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Libertarianism in Canada and England[edit]

Looks like you're right about Australia. I'm not sure about England, but Canada has at least one Libertarian Party, which indicates that they (might?) use the term the same way as in the US. [1] I don't know much about England, but I suspect they should be removed from the list at the beginning as well. Dave 08:42, Mar 20, 2005 (UTC)

Jay Inslee[edit]

Nice addition. However, please be aware of the distinction between "challenger" and "open seat" races -- the former is generally used only to refer to races where the incumbent is running for re-election. Inslee's 1992 race was for an open seat, as was his 1996 gubernatorial primary bid, and I've been unable to find any information on his 1988 election to the state legislature. RadicalSubversiv E 02:42, 25 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Whoops. Should've checked whether there was an incumbent in those races. Thanks for fixing that. At some point, I'd like to make similar tables for other politicians (I just started with Washington ones because those are the ones I'm most familiar with and Inslee in particular because MCs tend to have a lot of info available and he's in the 1st district). Whether that actually is going to happen or not is debatable... Jonel 00:15, 23 Mar 2005 (UTC)

More schools on Wikipedia:Votes for deletion[edit]

As of March 25, 2005, there are an additional (6) articles listed for deletion under the POV notion that schools are non-notable (even though this is invalid reasoning as per the Wikipedia deletion policy). Please be aware that the following schools are actively being discussed and voted upon:

In response to this cyclical ordeal, a Schoolwatch programme has been initiated in order to indentify school-related articles which may need improvement and to help foster and encourage continued organic growth. Your comments are welcome and I thank you again for your time. --GRider\talk

Thanks on ACORN[edit]

Thanks for watching ACORN and doing the revert, I have the reference to SEIU well cited in the NRLB decision but every once in a while someone will come along and remove SEIU from being mentioned for whatever reason. --Wgfinley 07:31, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for reverting my user page. I appreciate it. --Holdek (talk) 22:13, Apr 13, 2005 (UTC)

Talk:Green Party (United States), thanks. Shem 09:16, 2 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Hi, could you take a new look at that talk page and weigh in on my additions at the bottom? I would like to see a merge and I have suggestions there on why, as well as how it can be done without disposing of a separate page for the party's national committee (because I know you don't want to see that disappear). 65.28.237.180 02:49, 9 August 2005 (UTC)

Regarding the discussion at Talk:Green Party (United States)#Merge?, I have suggested a move. Please see Talk:Green Party of the United States, and consider voting. --65.28.237.180 03:01, 8 September 2005 (UTC)

Conservative Pulse[edit]

The deletion of the article on CP was justified because it was considered an "advertisement" and "vanity".

I also originated the article for NCCJ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Conference_for_Community_and_Justice Could this also be deleted on the same grounds? After all I have been involved with NCCJ for a long time, have an interest in its success as an organization, and a subjectively favorable view of it as a whole. Just making sure I'm following the letter of the law here. Khatores

Removed Link[edit]

You removed my link from E-Marketing .. that link was NOT to be removed .. this has already been discussed and was agreed that the link was ok to place there ... Discussed HERE with user SCEhardt

Thank you for your support for my adminship. And welcome to the ranks of the "defenders". Cheers, -Willmcw 07:09, Jun 24, 2005 (UTC)

Howard Dean[edit]

I've readded the stuff you removed from the Howard Dean article. We've been through this before. Wikipedia should have as much information as possible and that's what I'm simply doing. It isn't unnecessary of POV at all. As I've written before, personally I'm completely neutral on Howard Dean and if you don't think the section is balanced enough then add more information to counter what I've added, don't just delete usefull content. Believe me I'm not trying to start some kind of feud with you or anything, but with all due respect this is starting to get ridiculous. This website is about people collaborating together to make a helpful encyclopedia. And that's what we should be doing, not reverting other peoples useful edits. Please stop reverting. -- Judson 08:50, 26 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Though I explained most of the significant edits, I was not aware that this was an expected guideline. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. --TJive June 28, 2005 22:00 (UTC)

Libertas=Ultramarine?[edit]

Has anyone ever checked to see if Ultramarine is Libertas? The similarities in personality, POV, and even his English are pretty stong. 172 | Talk 16:01, 19 July 2005 (UTC)

It's also somewhat interesting that Ultramarine was editing only sporadically for his first month as an editor, but then started making typically around 50 edits a day for the entire period since Libertas' ban. [2] 172 | Talk 17:39, 19 July 2005 (UTC)

Hmm?[edit]

You removed 39kb of text from Democratic Party (United States). Any particular reason why? Moreover, you said you were correcting your own edit....which you were not.

Wikipedia:WikiProject Anti-war[edit]

From your user page and edit history I thought you might be interested in joining the new wikiproject; WikiProject Anti-war. As you no doubt know, anti-war movments and ideas have had a massive influence on world politics esspecially since the launch of the "war on terror" and the global reaction to it. Events like the Febuary 15th biggest ever global day of demo's are historic in and of themselves and well deserving of more attention then the currently recive on wikipedia. Also the project will aim to get rid of any redundent repeted information through unifiy the different anti-war pages. Some right-wingers have allready shown interest in the project so hopefully we can achive ballance and NPOV. Hope you chouse to become involved. --JK the unwise 15:28, 17 August 2005 (UTC)

Hampshire College[edit]

Thanks for fixing the motto of your alma mater. However, I have reverted your change to the mascot. Just because you have never heard of something, that doesn't make it wrong. Two seconds on Google would have shown you this: [3]. Quote, "Taking Root explains Hampshire history, Hampshire legends, and the Hampshire academic system, narrated by the friendly mascot, Lily, the Hampshire frog." Rkevins82 - TALK 18:56, 21 August 2005 (UTC)

Hey there buddy[edit]

I've seen you talking a lot about it, so perhaps you can answer my question at Third way. It is an honest question. I'm not trying to start a political fight. Thanks. --Lord Voldemort (Dark Mark) 16:33, 22 August 2005 (UTC)

Summer Reading Recs[edit]

Tried to post this on your blog:

Summer's almost over, but I'd add:

Ray Raphael, The First American Revolution C.D. Lummis, Radical Democracy Emspak, Labor's Untold Story (published by U.E.)

These three are must reads. I give them to friends all the time.

Herbert Hoover article looks like a love letter[edit]

could you look into the Herbert Hoover article?

Lenora Fulani[edit]

We had an edit conflict; I guess I should have actually slapped on {{inuse}} instead of just saying in my comment "…as a first step…". Yes, I noticed that the laudatory material was straight from CUIP's site.

Please take a look at my effort to integrate material from both sides. Personally, I don't like Fulani one bit, but I'm trying to give her the same fair treatment I would expect for a politician I favored. If you don't like what I did with this, we can go on from there. -- Jmabel | Talk 06:19, September 1, 2005 (UTC)

CHNM Interview[edit]

Hello,

I’m a historian working at the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University and we are very interested in digital, peer-produced works of history, including history articles in Wikipedia. We’d like to talk to people about their experiences working on articles in Wikipedia, in connection with a larger project on the history of the free and open source software movement. Would you be willing to talk with us about your involvement, either by phone, a/v chat, IM, or email? This could be as lengthy or brief a conversation as you wish.

Thanks for your consideration.

FairTax[edit]

At Talk:Ron_Paul#Income_tax, you expressed skepticism about abolition of the Income Tax being possible in today's economic climate.

Question[edit]

A quick query regarding Schlafly, who apparently edited Phyllis Schlafly from 30 June 2005 through 15 July 2005, primarily with questionable judgment, which resulted in a near even match-for-match Rv per edit, and an accusation of vandalism by him when his edits were, understandably, reverted to NPOV fully sourced content. He has discovered a new hobby, which is the Kansas evolution hearings, where he has edited from 6 January 2006 and already called an editor a vandal when his edits (one inaccurate and one copyvio) were reverted.

Any advice on how to reach this editor? I've already suggested he read WP:NPA, WP:V, WP:CITE, and WP:CON. His response was "I am familiar with the WP procedures." and I am tempted to reply "Then why don't you follow any of them?" but might be considered biting and I try to be a good puppy in spite of my name. Any insights you may have would be much appreciated. Thanks - KillerChihuahua?!? 14:41, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Notice of request for speedy deletion[edit]

Since you appear to be one of the earliest creators of the AFL-CIO article, I am giving you this courtesy notice:

Speedy deletion nomination of AFL–CIO[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 AFL–CIO requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from http://www.iaff2740.org/?

zone=/unionactive/view_article.cfm&HomeID=109487&page=Union20101. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

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.
