Mind telling me why you changed the redirect? TheBlazikenMaster 13:49, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

I changed it because I don't think a profanity needs to redirect to the literal meaning - Fucking does not go to Sexual intercourse. Generally different grammatical forms of a term should reach the same page, which is shit. Also, it eliminates the need for the hatnote at Defecation and should reduce vandalism to that page, whereas shit is semi-protected. The way, the truth, and the light 03:16, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

You have violated 3RR

You have already violated 3rr, you made 4 reverts within 24 hours. Please revert yourself back, before making any other edits, otherwise which you will be reported. Thanks. Lara_bran 03:31, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

2 week block

I have blocked you for 2 weeks for edit warring and violating 3RR on Sexual intercourse.

In the past six months, you have garnered five other blocks for edit warring, 3RR violations, and disruption. These blocks were for 24, 24, 48, 72 hours, and 1 week, respectively. I have therefore doubled the length of the last block you received. I think you can anticipate that this trend will continue. I urge you to change your behavior. Nandesuka 13:57, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Your email

  • I can't respond directly to your email, as it appears to be invalid (the domain is localhost.localdomain...not sure what happened there). Anyway, I had nothing to do with your recent block other than noting that you were in danger of 3RR in one of my edit summaries. I did not ask or suggest to anyone directly that they block you. That said, I don't disagree with Nandesuka's block, given your history of tendentious edits and edit warring. OhNoitsJamie Talk 17:34, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
  • I received your email. The matter in page Sexual intercourse that was the subject of the revert war, seems acceptable to me. See Wikipedia:Dispute resolution about how to get Wikipedia disputes resolved. Anthony Appleyard 18:14, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
  • WP:RM is Wikipedia:Requested moves. But what you seem to be wanting is not a move but a split. Or what? Best if you wait until your block period is over and then start a discussion section in page Talk:Sexual intercourse. Anthony Appleyard 20:27, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Why not make men's rights the equivalent of women's rights?

Hello. I'm wondering about this edit, where you undid the anon IP's changing of the first sentence to match women's rights. Both statements are unsourced; what is the harm in men having the same definition of gender-specific rights than women? Is it that you disagree with both statements but only got around to editing men's rights? Or do you believe men and women's rights are defined differently? Thanks for any response.

Dispute over page Atomic hydrogen

Limits on editing by admins: prank phone call number posting

As an administrator, I could and did delete the phone number I found in the userpages of 3 users, where they had the same text encouraging prank phone calls. You could just as easily have edited the pages and warned the users. But users have fairly broad ability to decide what is on their userpage, and I had not previously found it necessary to remove objectionable material from some else's userpage. (I'm not even sure what exact policy would forbid it, but there should be one). I have no ability to delete anything from history. Others who monitor the Administrators' noticeboard do have that "oversight" authority and someone removed old versions of User:Supernatural3's userpage which dated from before I did an edit to remove the phone numbers. I found the first problematic userpage, of Supernatural3 at 15:32, the second at 16:53 and the third at 16:58. At 1720 I posted on the Admin noticeboard that I had deleted the numbers from all 3 pages and had warned the users against re-posting them. Then at 18:26 you posted on my userpage your criticism of my actions for not exercising an oversight authority I do not have. Please feel free to contact Wikipedia:Requests for oversight to get Wikipedia:Revision hiding done to remove the history before my cleanup edit from User:Bryanwood343 and User:Specialwolf as someone with oversight authority already did at User:Supernatural3. Wikipedia is a great websight for people such as yourself to get involved to make improvements rather than sitting back and criticizing others who actually do the cleanup work. Edison (talk) 20:04, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your post at the Administrators' noticeboard. The three userpages have been consigned to the dustbin of Wikipedia and the target phone numbers are no longer posted. Edison (talk) 05:20, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Scrambling your account

It means choosing a random string of characters as your password, and not writing it down anywhere. Since Wikipedia has no password recovery functionality, that prevents you from ever logging in again. Sarcasticidealist (talk) 18:49, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Talk:Main Page

You fundamentally changed this page, substituting the text of the main page for it, here. This may have been accidental, but if intentional would be regarded as vandalism. Please take care when editing. --Anthony.bradbury"talk" 10:39, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Yes, of course it was an accident, sorry. The way, the truth, and the light (talk) 11:05, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Real social dynamics

Do not re-add this speedy deletion tag. The article does not meet the criterion listed, and will not be deleted for it. You are approaching 3rr, and will be blocked if you violate it. seresin ( ¡? ) 23:25, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Replied at your talk page. The way, the truth, and the light (talk) 07:31, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
No harm done. But for future reference, please be advised that any editor, except the author of the article, may remove a speedy delete tag. I did not make mention that I was an administrator because, as I just noted, I do not need to be one to remove a speedy delete tag, and I did not want to appear as if I was "throwing my weight around" as an administrator. At any rate, you merely needed to see my userpage to see that I am administrator. I also encourage you to assume good faith — immediately assuming that I am associated with the company and have devious intentions to include the article is a gross violation of assuming good faith. Considering you did not even look at my userpage, (because if you had, you would have seen that I am an administrator) I think you should be doing a bit more research into people before making such baseless accusations. seresin ( ¡? ) 22:13, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Please be more careful with your edits

Having separate articles for Group number of lanthanides and actinides and Group 3 element was a consensus solution to an unusual problem involving different representations and ideas about the Periodic Table. Before redirecting articles, you may want to take a look at the article talk page, and contribute your redirect idea there. Flying Jazz (talk) 00:47, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Please be more careful with your accusations. I don't see any consensus on the talk pages; no one other than you specifically commented on it. Finally, the two articles contain exactly the same text almost entirely and there can be no justification for that. I'll take it to AfD if you keep reverting. The way, the truth, and the light (talk) 07:35, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Huh? People of good will need to do what they think is best for the encyclopedia. If you think a redirect is best and I think it isn't then we can pose our arguments on the talk page and try to achieve consensus by asking other editors. I don't understand your comment: "I will take it to AfD if you keep reverting." Please do take it to AfD if you think it should be deleted, regardless of whether I keep reverting or not. Also, please review the discussion at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Chemistry/archive03#Group_3 Flying Jazz (talk) 00:50, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
That thread is again irrelevant to the existence of your article. The way, the truth, and the light (talk) 01:41, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
My previous post here on your user talk page was not meant to address the existence of the article. It was meant to address your style of interaction with a community of editors who have a long history of problem-solving and consensus-building. When you write "I'll take it to AfD if you keep reverting" and refer to an article as "your article," you seem to reveal an apparent goal of personalizing editing disputes. I only think of threats to do something as being threatening when I may feel a personal sense of loss, and I only think of things as being mine when I have control over them, so when you write those sorts of things here, it only makes me shake my head, laugh a little, and wonder why you think I care so much. Anyway, I think that matters relating to the article are best discussed on the article talk page or relevant project pages, and I think that matters relating to the actions of editors on Wikipedia are best discussed on their User talk pages. In an ideal situation, information on Wikipedia would always be discussed in a detached and rational fashion. Would you like to help situations at Wikipedia grow a little more ideal?

Please remember to warn vandals after reverting them

Sorry, I do not quite follow you when you said "the vandalism was old" [1] as the edit you reverted on Naked had been added just 38 minutes prior [2]. If we do not warn the vandals, how will they ever know to stop? Additionally, since vandals may only be blocked after having received a series of properly escalated warnings, not warning the vandals just lets them get away with their vandalism that much longer.

Looking at your edit history, I see that in the past five days you have reverted approximately 63 instances of vandalism, but only issued about nine warnings to IP addresses. Why would the Wikipedia community invest you with additional anti-vandalism tools (such as rollback) when you "don't want to waste time" [3] by issuing warnings using the tools you already have? --Kralizec! (talk) 17:07, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Page move

Would you please explain your recent page move? GDonato (talk) 21:15, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I was testing. I saw the 'move' button in the toolbar and wanted to know whether I could move the talk page of a move-protected page. I was going to, if it worked, immediately revert the move and then notify someone about the defect.
I was just about to move it back when you apparently blocked me. The way, the truth, and the light (talk) 21:17, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
OK, you triggered a page move vandal alert on IRC which is the reason why you were blocked. Tests such as these should not be carried out in future, use some form of sandbox. Unblocked. GDonato (talk) 21:20, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
LOL trout smack. I've seen you around anyway, no harm done, well, the harm that was done has been undone, so lets all forget about it...- (talk) 21:26, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Soapboxing on WP:AN

The Administrator's Noticeboard is not the appropriate venue for your comment. I have removed it. If you want to re-add it, please do so in your userspace. Nakon 20:40, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Sexist remarks are unwelcome here

Take the good advice that you were offered at WP:AN/I and accept that demanding apologies for six-month-old slights is not a productive use of time, and that even if it were AN/I would not be the appropriate venue. If you post anything more on Nakon's talk page that isn't an apology for your conduct there (an accusation of censorship [4], followed by a sexist remark [5]) then you will be blocked. TenOfAllTrades(talk) 22:19, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Hey, I don't think we've ever interacted before, and I wanted to chat about your semi-protection request at RFPP a minute ago. There are a lot of different admins who work at RFPP, most of which probably have no history with you personally. The semi you requested was pretty uncontroversial, so your comments about 3RR did more to confuse a cut and dry semi request than anything else. They also felt like an assumption of bad faith against sysops, and that feeling certainly doesn't help me make a decision about the merits of a protection request. I'm sure you probably have had honestly poor interactions with some admins before, god knows I certainly have come across patently rude ones, but there are more than 1500 of us. Try not to paint us all with the same brush, and I'll do my best to help you how I can. Thanks, VanTucky 23:36, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Actually, I wasn't sure that that sort of thing warranted protection. The reason for those comments atbout 3RR was my block last year, during several of which I was told basically that there wasno excuse at all for violating 3RR and that I would be automatically blocked if I did with each block being longer than the last. When I look at the 3RR board, though, I see plently of people get off for various reasons, so I can't help but think there must be something having to do with me. So, I was angry that I might face a month-long block for reverting this and that was the reason for my comment in the protection request. The way, the truth, and the light (talk) 23:42, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
Sounds like an obvious misjudgment on the part of the blocking admin to me. If you honestly thought something was vandalism and not a good faith contribution, I'm of the impression that it warrants some mercy when it comes to 3RR. I personally know what it's like to be blocked for 3RR, and it's best to try and not harbor resentments. Best regards, VanTucky 00:10, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
What blocking admin? I wasn't referring to any particular block. Also, I didn't think this contribution [6] was actually vandalism, and so it might not be considered an exception to 3RR (and as stated above, I have reason to believe admins will construe it as broadly as possible when I'm the offender), although it probably should be - since it is clearly inappropriate just as if it were vandalism or spam. The way, the truth, and the light (talk) 00:14, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
I thought you meant you were literally just blocked in response to the RFPP request. My mistake. VanTucky 00:31, 5 May 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I've just seen this. My apologies. I was using the "search" button to find common misspellings, and I may have corrected some of them too hastily without reading the whole extract for context. (In most cases, I think, I did read the context.) It was dumb of me. Thanks for fixing it. Ashton1983 (talk) 08:44, 9 May 2008 (UTC)


Good day. Please add sources to the Mono-Atomic section of Hydrogen. No one else is going to do it because, quite frankly, you're the only one who wants it included in the article. I don't particularly care one way or the other about the content itself - if you can find good sources to back it up, I'll be a happy clam. If not, the content will be moved back to its original article - which should have happened anyway, seeing as there was no discussion about the merger. One way or the other, something must change. Thank you. --Cryptic C62 · Talk 03:58, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
