The Sega Article[edit]

Before you revert the edits on the Sega Article, present me good arguments why the article was good the way it was before. You still haven't responded to my points responding to your concerns. Talk:Sega#Proposed mass deletion

S0mewhat Damaged05[edit]

I'm pretty sure the the editor you have encountered on United States and state terrorism is a sockpuppet of Horhey. The type of info he has added about El Salvador and Phoenix program is virtually identical to what Horhey and his sock-puppets added.Stumink (talk) 18:31, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Stop following me[edit]

Isn't it a form of harassment to check my contribs, then go to articles you've never edited before purely to revert me? How describing a historian as "documenting" something is loaded language is not yet apparent to me. For example, Raul Hilberg's Destruction has these things called "footnotes", which point to the documentation he based himself on. One therefore says, "Hilberg documented such-and-such." Thank you for your time. --YeOldeGentleman (talk) 21:54, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

I changed my mind. I like it when you follow me. --YeOldeGentleman (talk) 22:01, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
Those articles are both among the 1,596 on my Watchlist.TheTimesAreAChanging (talk) 22:22, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
Oh, sure! That old chestnut… Ah, and to think I was about to ask if you had that idiom in Yankland—you own it!
Now, listen up, American worm: I have 614 pages on my watchlist so far. I'd also ask you to keep in mind that I have incredible power.
Also, please, do not misunderstand my keeping out that edit on Juan Cole. It honestly was just that Mediaite[who?] (sp?) cannot be considered RS, as well you knew. I am not interested in defending that maggot—"Let's invade Libya! It will be totally cool!"—because Cole pronounces himself a person of the Left. If you want to fire reams of criticism into his article, be my guest. Truth told, there is already some embarrassingly precarious synth criticism of him inserted by me. I ought to snip it out, but I just can't find the time, you know?
Continuing with Cole: I do think the bit about the "far right-wing Jews" is just the usual attempt at smear with antisemitism (he's a critic of Israel, as you know). He, of course, knew this would happen, which is why he phrased himself so carefully: not just some Jews who are right-wing, but far right-wing!! Yikes, talk about covering one's buttocks. He should have known it would do him no good, for criticism of Israel means you are painted indelibly as a target. Still, these are only my thoughts and experiences and sensual appurtenances.
I have been sad to read analyses saying (WP:SAY) that Wikipedia editorship is declining with the uptake of tablets and smart phones.
This has gone off at two different tangents now, neither of which is interesting, so I end here. Let us now return to collegial editing. With ♥ --YeOldeGentleman (talk) 23:26, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
No-one accused Cole of being anti-Semitic—It was merely pointed out that his assertions have no basis in fact. Perhaps the haste with which he blamed the Jews was not the result of antisemitism, but merely the product of his desire to smear his political foes. Either way, it's nothing to admire.
Consider the following propositions: "Majority rule in the Middle East may only empower theocratic demagogues. There may not be an American yearning for freedom inside every one of our little brown brothers. The great crusade to make the world safe for democracy may not be applicable to faraway lands with vastly different cultures than our own. Change should be gradual. The best-governed states in the Arab world are the monarchies, not the demotic regimes." Does the stance I just described belong on the Left, or the Right? How can any Leftist resist spreading progressivism, secularism, pluralism, and feminism by the sword if necessary, or seriously entertain the notion that Arabs must be ruled by strongmen for their own good? If Bush was wrong to blow up Iraq due to his sincere belief in building a modern Westernized state in the heart of the Arab world, what does that make Obama for bombing Libya into chaos without any similarly optimistic intentions of picking up the pieces?TheTimesAreAChanging (talk) 02:44, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
Hey, TTAAC!
"he blamed the Jews…" He did not blame "the Jews"; he spoke about some "far right-wing" Jews. Do you wonder why I believe Cole was the target of a typical antisemitism smear? Again, I do not like Cole. Here's an RS on Cole's blog post, if you feel like adding it.
"Does the stance I just described belong on the Left, or the Right?" Both and neither. I mean, you hear people on the Left and the Right talking about how there's a good little American/European inside every stinking Arab waiting to get out; but I wouldn't say this is a left-wing or a right-wing view—just ludicrous, imperialistic racism.
"what does that make Obama?" I assume this question stems from an assumption that I like Obama, or would at least seek to defend him because he calls himself a liberal. (I hate liberals). If my assumption is correct, then your assumption is mistaken—though obviously the mistake is forgiveable, since we do not know each other. I loath Obama in many ways more than I loath Bush.
I urge you to reconsider your opposition to nekkidness. With ♥ --YeOldeGentleman (talk) 09:33, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
