Wiki-links[edit]

The disclaimer contains 2 links to article-space. One is "personality rights", which seems quite reasonable. The other is "United States of America". What is the purpose of linking such a broad topic here? I don't know if something like "WP:OVERLINK applies outside of article-space, but in any case, I fail to see how linking this redirect to "United States" does anything to help clarify the subject for the reader. Joefromrandb (talk) 09:09, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

I can see no good reason at all for the link to United States of America, and in nearly seven months nobody has suggested that there is a good reason, so I have removed the link. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 15:23, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Just a minor grammatical fix (add necessary comma):

That's interesting. It's possible the page was fully protected before the protection log became a part of the MediaWiki software. Mz7 (talk) 04:56, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

If you go and read the American Horse Racing Manuel for 1971, you will read that the leading apprentice jockey for 1970 was mot Sandy Hawley as you have printed, but it was H. K. Wellington(Harold Karl Wellington) referred to by the press as the Duke. He beat Hawley in the standings by a few wins I believe. The American Horse Racing manuel always reports the standings a year behind. This may not be a big deal to any of you there who falsely reported this information, but it is a very big deal to me, his wife and his his children.


Thank you,

Wikipedia Self Defeating[edit]

Wikimedia:General disclaimer [1]

"Please be advised that nothing found here has necessarily been reviewed by people with the expertise required to provide you with complete, accurate or reliable information".

Yet Wikipedia, "Wikipedia:Identifying reliable sources", [2] disallows those of us with the Formal Schooling, Formal Training and Firsthand Experience from actually providing that complete, accurate or reliable information. While Wikipedia allows those with opinionated blogs (no Firsthand Experience easily detected by those with actual Firsthand Experience, Formal Training, Formal Schooling, etc.) being able to use their Opinionated Blogs as a Reference according to the Rules of Wikipedia.

The Results, Wikipedia is not a Reliable Source of Information, according to Wikipedia's own Disclaimers.

Irony other internet sites that used Wikipedia are only propagating the misinformation that was originally from Wikipedia, then others use those very same sites as sources to edit Wikipedia after those with the actual facts edited Wikipedia to provide "complete, accurate or reliable information."


"Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. In the first stage of life the mind is frivolous and easily distracted, it misses progress by failing in consecutiveness and persistence. This is the condition of children and barbarians, in which instinct has learned nothing from experience." George Santayana [3] and those of us that actually read George Santayana's entire The Life of Reason, with the Wikipedia Article George Santayana then misquoting George Santayana's critism of Progressives as "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it" [4] and completely deleting the previous in context full quote.

Article on Capitol View, Ward 7[edit]

This article is racist and does NOT accurately depict the community. The writer clearly does not know who actually lives here and is solidifying their treatise on us based on the fsct we're predominantly black. Even tbe data he or she says is occurring is incorrect. I made edits to make article more even-handed and it's been replaced by the original, biased article that paints the entire community by just 4 blocks. THIS ARTICLE IS RACIST Ward7Resident (talk) 18:27, 10 May 2016 (UTC)
