Areas of interestEdit

I create and edit a lot of articles to do with opera and classical music, particularly the works of Handel, and current opera singers. I also work in the area of early Christian history, finding the clash between the mindsets of the Romans and the Christians fascinating.

  The Defender of the Wiki Barnstar
Evidently I'm late to the presentation ceremony here, but I also felt that this was deserved, for your work re the soon-to-be-ex-article Jews and Communism. Balaenoptera musculus (talk) 13:20, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
  The Barnstar of Diligence
  The Guidance Barnstar
For your amazing work to protect Wikipedia from antisemitism and copyvio.
  The Defender of the Wiki Barnstar
Dear Smeat75, there is no such thing as winning too many awards and it is therefore my honor as well to acknowledge your stubborn and dogged determination, in spite of all the unjustified insults you had to endure, to pinpoint everything that was wrong with the misbegotten "Jews & Communism" article and you played a huge role in revealing it for the sham and shame that it was. "The Defender of the Wiki may be awarded to those who have gone above and beyond to prevent Wikipedia from being used for fraudulent purposes" and this certainly applies to you. It has been a pleasure meeting you on Wikipedia. IZAK (talk) 21:33, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
  The Random Acts of Kindness Barnstar
There are so many awards here! Having worked with you even a little, anyone would be able to tell you have earned every one many times over. Your kindness, patience and flexibility, your commitment to excellence, and most of all your willingness to listen not only impressed me, they filled me with respect and gratitude. You are an exceptional Wikipedean and it has been an honor to meet you and work with you even for a little while. Thank you.Jenhawk777 (talk) 07:03, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
