A thoughtful researcher I admire

Thanks to all of you for the interesting conversations that occur here. We are here to build an encyclopedia, so let's discuss how to improve as many of the 5,223,218 articles on Wikipedia as we can. Tips from Wikipedians on how to edit better, and on where to find resources for sourcing better edits, are always appreciated. I see other user talk pages have announcements about where each editor will reply to posts. Usually I will reply to your comments to me, posted here, right here on this page. I'll do my best to learn to follow to where you want me to read your posts, and where to reply to them, if you have a differing preference.

Please see my how I edit page for a detailed discussion of my approach to editing Wikipedia. Note that I am rigid and inflexible in respecting the core Wikipedia content guideline of respecting reliable secondary sources, so I read actual books and review articles rather than blogs or fringe websites when searching for information for updating Wikipedia articles. Experience has taught me that it is pointless to prefer the world of blogs for information in an era when academic libraries are woefully neglected. Professional academic librarians (who are severely underpaid, in my opinion) are well qualified to advise you on what sources are reliable and what sources are laughable in the opinion of thorough, thoughtful scholars. Ask a professional reference librarian at an academic library for advice on what sources are reliable and mainstream. The librarian will be glad to help. (And, yes, anyone who answers questions like this should be paid more to answer the questions than is usually the case.)

Please note. Somehow some editor has been disregarding the immediately preceding paragraph here, so let me be especially clear. I happen to work on pages that are subject to active arbitration remedies, and the related ArbCom case included site bans for some editors who have returned to Wikipedia as puppets. I cannot always be sure that comments posted to this page are posted by someone who had nothing to do with the case that triggered those remedies. Therefore I will make full use of my right to remove comments from my own user pages. "The removal of material from a user page is normally taken to mean that the user has read and is aware of its contents. There is no need to keep them on display and usually users should not be forced to do so." I have the right to clean up my own user talk page and will do so. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, we may as well remember that it's always hunting season for that kind of duck.

Discretionary sanctions notice[edit]

As you posted on my Talk page W124l29 (talk) 11:37, 22 April 2016 (UTC):

Commons-emblem-notice.svg This message contains important information about an administrative situation on Wikipedia. It does not imply any misconduct regarding your own contributions to date.

Please carefully read this information:

The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding the intersection of race/ethnicity and human abilities and behaviour, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here.

Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to the topic that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behavior, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. This message is to notify you sanctions are authorised for the topic you are editing. Before continuing to edit this topic, please familiarise yourself with the discretionary sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.

I saw your participation in discussion on the talk page of Caucasian race and thought you should know about this. I do not see the corresponding talk page notice on the article itself, which is a bit surprising to me. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (Watch my talk, How I edit) 16:41, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for bringing this to my notice, as I had before assumed so much. I also assume that Wikipedia is not censored, and that neutral point of view truely means just that--even where the majority of hits on Google means fact to many it sadly appears. You did share this due to the "Editors reminded and discretionary sanctions" section, no? Regardless, I don't believe that I have commented on any intersection of race slash ethnicity and human abilities & behavior. If you would please help me understand so much, then I would much appreciate it.W124l29 (talk) 02:14, 21 April 2016 (UTC)
I am waiting for your reply.W124l29 (talk) 11:37, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
What reply do you think you need? It's an informational notice. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (Watch my talk, How I edit) 13:50, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I would simply like to know as to why you posted it on my Talk page where I don't believe that I have commented on any intersection of race slash ethnicity and human abilities & behavior.

Greetings WeijiBaikeBainji, I noticed that you removed an edit by Palguay [1]. The edit was where he left an external link to I investigated further and found that he might have a COI as he also wrote the BrainTurk page. I've nominated the page for deletion. If you could, please vote in the AfD [2]. CerealKillerYum (talk) 04:59, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
