Hello, pull up a chair and let's talk...Bibby (talk) 21:59, 25 October 2018 (UTC)

Please post on my Talk Page if you want to communicate with me, as you see I sometimes get a gentle and helpful nudge in the right direction here on Wikipedia and I am more than willing to have a discussion, but it must be based on Wikipedia principles and in which our emotions are held in check with sound scientifically based reason and logic.

Things that make me wonder what you are smoking?Edit

Editing a Wiki page to simplify it and you end up changing what is being discussed, ie: marine biology to marine (especially when a Wiki Link is provided!)

Start Editing a Wiki page without actually reading the Source which is cited, and end up making claims the opposite of that stated in the Source!

Re-word a sentence in a Wiki page, so "it reads better" and then delete the Source the sentence is based on!

Changing the wording INSIDE "quotation marks", you can't do that,... it's a "quote" - even if you think your edit reads better!

Having a discussion on a Talk page in which I have to explain to you what you are talking about and quote back to you your own statements, tactfully pointing out to you - "YOU said it! Not me!!"

POINT BLANKLY refusing to provide a Source for a claim (statement) which YOU made, and expect me to continue having a discussion with YOU!


EDITING A WIKI EDITORS COMMENTS ON A TALK PAGE TO CHANGE WHAT THEY SAID... really? Come on, please... grow up!


And this one is the BEST of them ALL;

Proudly declaring that you have NOT read the SOURCE relevant to the topic being discussed, but dogmatically stating that I am misquoting it ! ! ! where's an emoji for a Facepalm when you need one ... failing that ... defenestration anyone?
