Belle LinskyEdit

the IP editor on Belle Linsky is pretty persistent huh? I am keeping an eye on it. Next revert is your turn, although I imagine it will be deleted or moved by then.ThatMontrealIP (talk) 02:33, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

I asked for semiprotection and it was declined. The all-wise admins who said "no" to that can deal with that rubbish as far as I'm concerned. Coretheapple (talk) 04:15, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
that's funny, I asked to semi protection today as well! They said the IP editor might be adding something useful. Not.ThatMontrealIP (talk) 03:21, 9 February 2019 (UTC)
@ThatMontrealIP: If the article is kept this obvious COI editor is going to be a pest going forward. It is very hard to deal with people using a phone or tablet as this one obviously is, except semiprotection for a time. Coretheapple (talk) 15:15, 9 February 2019 (UTC)
Yes, my thoughts exactly. We can go for semi-protection at that time. ThatMontrealIP (talk) 02:46, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
I asked again, and Oshwah kindly blocked the IP range.ThatMontrealIP (talk) 17:07, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
@ThatMontrealIP: Good! I haven't checked the edits lately, but I will tell you (as per my note on the talk page) that there is some really questionable stuff in that article. Not OR but text that seems to be made up, such as the line about having more Faberge eggs than the Queen, that sort of thing. There is a goodly amount of material on the company in that MacArthur book, and I am trying to get a copy of it. I think that perhaps the solution is to expand the Swingline article and then maybe do a merge. Thanks for your efforts on this. Coretheapple (talk) 21:27, 14 February 2019 (UTC)

Edit revertEdit

I don't understand the reason behind this revert. Can you explain? Abecedare (talk) 23:41, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

Holy shit. I don't recognize that edit. I have changed my password. Holy shit. Coretheapple (talk) 00:26, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
No problem. I assumed that it was just an inadvertent click on the rollback link or something. In case there are other edits you don't recognize and you fear password-hacking, perhaps you can contact a CU to check if those edits were made from your computer/IP or not (not really sure if they can,and are allowed to do that, but can always ask). Abecedare (talk) 00:31, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
The problem is that I wasn't even on that page! I wasn't anywhere near ANI. I wasn't monitoring that or any other discussion on ANI. I am going to see if a CU would be kind enough to ascertain what IP that came from and if it was different from the rest. Coretheapple (talk) 00:33, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

RE: AEEdit

In regards to your comment at AE - diff5 in the request is a !vote in a RfC not on the basis of coverage in sources, but arguing the content (Palestinian violence towards Israel settlers) should be omitted from a main-space article section since "resisting occupation is legitimate".Icewhiz (talk) 15:15, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

OK but I think that replies should go on the AE page. Coretheapple (talk) 16:34, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
You could also note that I amended that (days before I was reported on AE), Huldra (talk) 21:17, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical CollectivismEdit

Dear Colleague

Please, be specific and give examples (section, subsection, paragraph, line) of where my editorial contributions constitute original research. The encyclopaedic presentation is according to the facts already in the article.

If you might, let me know, in the article's talk page.

Regards

Chas. Caltrop (talk) 23:33, 30 November 2019 (UTC)

The entire article is a dense word stew. Is that specific enough for you? It requires a complete rewrite to bring to Wikipedia standards. Coretheapple (talk) 23:37, 30 November 2019 (UTC)

Please comment on Talk:LibertarianismEdit

Please comment on the discussion regarding the use of the term "right libertarian" to describe libertarians that do not oppose free markets, and that do not make a clear distinction between laissez-faire capitalism and advocacy of free markets. This discussion can be found on the talk page for the Libertarianism article. The term is primarily used in a derogatory way and by self-described "left-libertarians". The individuals described in that article, and in the poorly-titled right-libertarianism article do not typically identify with the political right - or the political for that matter.

Peace DoveEdit

Peace is a state of balance and understanding in yourself and between others, where respect is gained by the acceptance of differences, tolerance persists, conflicts are resolved through dialog, peoples rights are respected and their voices are heard, and everyone is at their highest point of serenity without social tension. Happy Holidays to you and yours. ―Buster7  00:19, 12 December 2019 (UTC)
