SalamancaEdit

I saw your comment on the talk page as I went there to explain my bold edit. I see you are a wiki gnome but in such cases of POV pushing like that sentence, we can be bold to rectify it Anarcho-authoritarian (talk) 23:31, 8 April 2017 (UTC)

Regarding your question on the missing commaEdit

Regarding your question on the missing comma, Wouldn't it be a comma between a subject and a verb?, I'm not sure what you mean, but have you read WP:Copyedit#Punctuation?

It you take the sentence "The British North America Act of July 1, 1867, united the colonies of ... " (with commas per above), there is only place to insert the parenthetical expression "(now celebrated as Canada Day)", and that is between "1867" and the comma.

HandsomeFella (talk) 06:46, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

The example in the rules has an adverbial at the start of a sentence (On September 15, 1947, she began her first year at Harvard.), whereas your example puts two commas between a subject and a verb. I'm sure one of them is correct (July 1, 1867), but I'm not really familiar with the second one. Would you like to point out any rules about it?--Adûnâi (talk) 14:57, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
Please see MOS:COMMA, the "Burke and Wills" example. HandsomeFella (talk) 20:01, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
It's a completely unrelated example. If in your sentence, it was the Act that united the colonies, I don't see how you could put the second comma between them. And I can't see why it wouldn't be the Act. It would be exactly like in your example if it looked like this, "The Act of July 1, 1867, today called the Constitution Act, united..."--Adûnâi (talk) 13:43, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

Libyan DesertEdit

Hello
I noticed your edits on this page, which I've just had occasion to go back to. Your edits were reasonable enough, but the text you found was the result of a bad change (here) which was imperfectly corrected (here). I've put it right, but have had to undo some of your changes in the process. I trust you are OK with that. Regards, Moonraker12 (talk) 22:51, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

April 2019Edit

  Please do not add defamatory content to Wikipedia, as you did to Talk:Katie_Bouman, especially if it involves living persons. Thank you. RhinosF1(chat)(status)(contribs) 10:03, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

If the trolling that was on display at Talk:Katie Bouman recurs, you will be blocked. Consider yourself warned for this response [1] too. Acroterion (talk) 22:27, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Acroterion How does this constitute trolling? Am I trying to catch "lulz" (the definition of trolling) out of a suggestion to research the matter in question? As far as I can see, people are asking for different kinds of details about the person (e.g., her father), and they're fine?
Again, I want to say that it seems incredible to me that asking whether a person is a Jew is inflammatory! Honestly, this is the greatest irony! Also, Bourman does seem like a Jewish surname, I'm Western Ukrainian and this kind of names is common here.
Also, it's incredible that you are threatening me with an account block after only a single comment on the talk page! Is this legitimate? Aren't talk pages a place for discussion? In my 5 years on this website, I have never vandalized any page! Before the smallest of contributions (well, bigger than commas), I usually ask for advice! It's incomprehensible to me to be taken for a vandal.--Adûnâi (talk) 15:28, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
Whether you think so or not, it is most definitely inflammatory to speculate in that manner. It's a violation of the biographies of living persons policy and is commonly referred to on Wikipedia as Jew-tagging, resulting in sanctions for the editors who do that. Now that you know that it's not acceptable behavior, I expect it to stop. Your comment was deleted by another administrator as grossly offensive. Acroterion (talk) 15:39, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
Is there a written policy on this thing called "Jew-tagging"? If it's offensive, and Editors are getting sanctions, I would think someone would have made some kind or written policy about it, rather than waiting for unsuspecting Editors to stumble into the trap.Tym Whittier (talk) 16:59, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
I've closed the discussion at Talk:Katie Bouman - Wikipedia isn't an a megaphone for the chan boards, and talkpages aren't for guessing or speculation about living people. Acroterion (talk) 15:43, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
No, I do not understand why my comment was deleted if it was on the talk page (for which the talk page exists), used no slurs, and at the same time was about a possible feature of a person in question (as you may see, there is literally another comment posted on the said talk page about this very question). I fail to see how this is inflammatory or damaging - I could see it if I had asked if she's a child molester. I fail to see how this is trolling or an edit war - I posted it on the talk page. I used no slurs - my language is clean of it, albeit I've never been used to proper Wikipedia style (but then again, that's why I write on talk pages). A mere question about the person's identity is not inflammatory.
Have you honestly taken me for someone from 4chan, and that's the rationale for this whole thing? I don't get it. I do visit that website, but pretty rarely and inconsequentially.--Adûnâi (talk) 15:47, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
It was an exact mirror for trolling behavior in content and tone, which is why Oshwah deleted it and why we're having this conversation. Please take the BLP policy seriously. Now that you know that, there shouldn't be any other trouble. Acroterion (talk) 15:50, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
No, trolling is an inflammatory remark. Mine was not. Not to any sensible people, that is. But maybe I did disturb some holy cows, and if that is the case, I do indeed humbly ask for forgiveness and reconciliation.--Adûnâi (talk) 15:54, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
Asking if someone is a Jew "because they look like one" is patently offensive. Don't ever do that again. Acroterion (talk) 16:15, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
Asking if someone has African-American ancestry because they look like it is completely fine, in my opinion. Genetic biodiversity is a thing in humans. Cheers.--Adûnâi (talk) 16:27, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

NoticeEdit

 This is a standard message to notify contributors about an administrative ruling in effect. It does not imply that there are any issues with your contributions to date.

You have shown interest in living or recently deceased people, and edits relating to the subject (living or recently deceased) of such biographical articles. Due to past disruption in this topic area, a more stringent set of rules called discretionary sanctions is in effect. Any administrator may impose sanctions on editors who do not strictly follow Wikipedia's policies, or the page-specific restrictions, when making edits related to the topic.

For additional information, please see the guidance on discretionary sanctions and the Arbitration Committee's decision here. If you have any questions, or any doubts regarding what edits are appropriate, you are welcome to discuss them with me or any other editor.
