Most people didn't like this scary revision of Jimbo's talk page (you need to wait on the page a few moments to see it...)

"Commentators often express doubt whether he is being sarcastic or just incoherent" - from our article on Muammar Gaddafi but sometimes true of me too.

Something to Keep in Mind
I can NOT emphasize this enough. There seems to be a terrible bias among some editors that some sort of random speculative 'I heard it somewhere' pseudo information is to be tagged with a 'needs a cite' tag. Wrong. It should be removed, aggressively, unless it can be sourced. This is true of all information, but it is particularly true of negative information about living persons.

Jimmy Wales [1][2][3]




Something Else to Keep in Mind

Wikipedia's policy on Biographies of living persons mentions that material about living persons in any Wikipedia page must follow all applicable laws in the United States of America. This does not mean that compliance with U.S. law is sufficient for compliance with Wikipedia policy on such material. The policy does not exist for the primary purpose of avoiding litigation. It exists for the primary purpose of avoiding the possibility of harm to living subjects -- and the avoidance of litigation is merely a fortuitous consequence of this.

In other words, confidence that publication of material would not be defamatory (for example because it is sourced to an identifiable third party publication) does not establish that the material meets the requirements of WP:BLP. It should be expected that even respectable broadsheet newspapers or news websites will routinely publish material about living persons that may not be suitable as part of an encyclopedia.

Demiurge1000 I would like to award you this Barnstar for you help on my article The Academy at Lincoln. I am fairly new to Wikipedia and am still working on learning all of the rules and Wikipedia guide lines. Thanks for editing my page, stopping the vandalism on it, and making it better conform to Wikipedia guidelines. Thanks for all your help teaching me the ropes, if i need anymore help I will be sure to let you know! @ d \/\/ | | |,~Adwiii -Questions? Comments? 00:23, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Demiurge1000, you have been so helpful to me showing me around learning, teaching me how this place works. WP needs more people like you helping out new users. If it wasn't for you I probably would have gotten booted out for not following some random policy I had never heard of.

Stop signs and sockpuppetry
Stop hand.svg

Please do not make statements attacking people or groups of people. Wikipedia has a strict policy against personal attacks. Attack pages and images are not tolerated by Wikipedia and are speedily deleted. Users who continue to create or repost such pages and images in violation of our biographies of living persons policy will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Thank you.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Your name has been mentioned in connection with a sockpuppetry case. Please refer to Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Daedalus969 for evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with the guide to responding to cases before editing the evidence page. — HelloAnnyong (say whaaat?!) 18:08, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

This is your last warning; the next time you disrupt Wikipedia, as you did at Richard Boyd Barrett, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. The warning you gave me on Viticulturist99 (talk) was a frivolous warning. I haven't done a single reversion but kept editing and improving the article according to the consensus finally reached on the talk page. Your intervention amounts to censorship if not to harrassment. Wikipedia is not not censored. Please stop. --Viticulturist99 (talk) 04:20, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Stop acting in what appears to be bad faith. Your hostile comments on my talk page and your revert of a simple, correct edit show signs of some kind of grudge. It would be more productive for you to use your energy elsewhere - Unixtastic (talk) 21:58, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Delirium wrote: Well, I'd expand the ban on "original research" slightly further than just that. An article that makes no new low-level claims, but nonethless synthesizes work in a non-standard way, is effectively original research that I think we ought not to publish. This comes up most often in history, where there is a tendency by some Wikipedians to produce novel narratives and historical interpretations with citation to primary sources to back up their interpretation of events. Even if their citations are accurate, Wikipedia's poorly equipped to judge whether their particular synthesis of the available information is a reasonable one. [Jimbo Wales writes] I agree completely. I think in part this is just a symptom of an unfortunate tendency of disrespect for history as a professional discipline. Some who completely understand why Wikipedia ought not create novel theories of physics by citing the results of experiments and so on and synthesizing them into something new, may fail to see how the same thing applies to history. --Jimbo
