Julissa Sabino[edit]

She's a minor actress and isn't even in the same union[1] as the Rockettes. It's in the AP article though so we're kind of stuck with it.The Rockettes are represented by American Guild of Variety Artists --Wlmg (talk) 21:58, 27 December 2016 (UTC)

Interesting. I bet they're being paid a s***load of money to perform, otherwise why would the Rockettes be doing it -- considering the long-term price they're bound to pay in the court of public opinion. An old Steve Martin joke about the Rockettes -- counting the breasts, 57 up there. Maybe there's an app depicting how much $$$ they'll get per leg lift.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 00:34, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
Hee Hee the Martin joke was about the topless shows in Las Vegas, but I understand your meaning. Wlmg (talk) 16:02, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
Yes it's kind of fitting that a pussy-grabber would have leg-lifting dancers tease him into office.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 16:09, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
Imho the Rockettes are a racist anachronism despite allowing Rockette's of color in the late '80s there are not that many of them. Native New Yorkers do not go to Radio City Music hall. It's for visiting rubes. And btw the momentum of an eye-high kick coming down , according to my back-of-an-envelope calculation would break Trump's small hand if he ever tried anything.

Citation Removal: Search engine optimization[edit]

Hey there Tom!

I noticed that you removed the citation link I added to Search engine optimization and would like to follow up with you to inquire reinstatement, for the current link sends an error. The content on the page I suggested covers exactly what the old link discussed - parts of it verbatim. I have no intentions of placing a spammy link within a place which one could use as a resource, and I ensure that the information on the page is well researched.

I would like to at lease offer a working link to a positive source. Thanks for your time Tom!

Is this link here the one you're talking about? How does that add to Wikipedia?--Tomwsulcer (talk) 19:41, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Leonard Lance[edit]

Please use template:cite web. The ref on Leonard Lance is a bit cumbersome. Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 01:44, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Ok, will do, thanx.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 02:32, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Summit Downtown Historic District[edit]

Summit Downtown Historic District Any pictures? Thanks Djflem (talk) 07:31, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

Are you talking new pictures or old ones? I have uploaded numerous pictures of the downtown area, many of them are here. Do you need more images, if so, why?--Tomwsulcer (talk) 11:37, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

Was this revert a mistake?[edit]

With this revert, did you mean to revert the editor before me rather than me? Your edit summary says "Need sources for this", but my edit was removing the recently added poorly sourced and unsourced information, not adding it.

If your revert was intentional, I think it was a violation of the arbitration remedies visible at the top of Talk:Protests against Donald Trump, which state "All editors must obtain consensus on the talk page of this article before reinstating any edits that have been challenged (via reversion)." —Granger (talk · contribs) 22:32, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Yep, probably my mistake. I self-reverted, sorry.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 14:27, 4 March 2017 (UTC)

Greyball[edit]

Thanks Tom, you've saved me a lot of research. This is Paul (talk) 13:43, 4 March 2017 (UTC)

If you were writing the article at the same time as me, I hope I didn't pre-empt your effort.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 14:26, 4 March 2017 (UTC)
No worries, I hadn't made a start on it. This is Paul (talk) 17:13, 4 March 2017 (UTC)

Why didst thou put back this seemingly biased bit when I removed it?[edit]

this, I'm not sure how it's not bias to have satire be on the front page of an encyclopedia article. However, if thou hast a good refutation, I will listen to it. Is it just Twinkle not working properly?--Jacob's Crackers (talk) 13:24, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Egads, forsooth. Why dost thou thinkest that such pieceth be-ith biased-eth justest becausest there is some satire ensconsed within it? The reference clearly refers to the Alice in Wonderland as an example of the philosophy behind redistribution and socialism. Here is whatst the source sayeth:--Tomwsulcer (talk) 13:32, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Equality of outcome is a radically different concept. Equality of opportunity provides in a sense that all start the race of life at the same time. Equality of outcome attempts to ensure that everyone finishes at the same time. To slightly change what the Dodo said in Alice in Wonderland, "Everybody must win and all must have prizes". That is the goal of radical socialism. Everyone must be a winner, everyone must be equal. Socialists do not really point towards absolute equality but they point to vague ideas of fairness and justness.

So, I honestly dost thinkest that the imageth dost deserveth to be in said article, but I will listeneth if you have an alternativeeth pointeth of view (or a more suitable image?).--Tomwsulcer (talk) 13:31, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Bronxville Union Free School District, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Spam (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.

Joe Barton[edit]

With [2] you deleted what I said on the Joe Barton talk page. I regard that as a violation of WP:TALKO. I object. Peter Gulutzan (talk) 16:50, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

If so it was an accident. I added my comment, looked for your comment but couldn't find it, and didn't figure out what happened. Apologies.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 16:55, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

Ben Jacobs[edit]

Regarding your revision of 02:00, 27 May 2017 of Ben Jacobs (journalist): The Jerusalem Post and Jewish Telegraphic Agency are respected news organizations and are reliable sources. This isn't WP:SYNTH or WP:FRINGE either. —Anomalocaris (talk) 06:36, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

Fair enough. What I am coming around to thinking is that religion had nothing to do with the initial assault -- but afterwards, given the corrosive political climate with Internet trolling and such, and neo-Nazi white supremacists and anti-semitism, that religion has become a factor (unfortunately) so yes, I'll reluctantly agree that this stuff should stay in (although I still feel the entire JTA article doesn't belong as a source in this).--Tomwsulcer (talk) 11:40, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
