Text fileEdit

You undid my comment stating that it was confusing when it comes to certain types of files. Irregardless your confusion, this core, basic fact needs to be explained: ALL FILES, REGARDLESS THEIR CONTENT, ARE, AT THE LOWEST LEVEL, BINARY. Without it, confusion is rampant. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 131.119.15.14 (talk) 17:11, 4 April 2022 (UTC)

I had two objections to your edit.
The first objection is that when you make an extremely obvious statement, people become confused and wonder why you even brought it up. If you to the stage microphone in a busy theatre and say "the theatre is not on fire" the crowd is going to panic. Of course all computer files are fundamentally binary, but why say so while describing a text file?
My second objection is the wording. The edit stated "but to be clear, all computer files are fundamentally binary. It's just that some of the binary data is binary encoded textual information, and the rest is not." Is this supposed to mean that every computer file contains a mix of binary encoded textural information, and some other binary information that is not textural information? Does it mean that some files consist entirely of binary encoded textural information, and some files consist entirely of non-textural binary information? Or something else?

Removal of multiple talk page commentsEdit

Not sure you meant to do this? Number 57 20:11, 4 April 2022 (UTC)

The edit I see now for User:Number 57 is not what I saw when I made the edit. I suspect some technical glitch. Jc3s5h (talk) 21:48, 4 April 2022 (UTC)

third opinion request on jouleEdit

I think you added the 3O request below rather than above the onlyinclude line which is relevant for how it's included in other pages. This may reduce its visibility. IpseCustos (talk) 13:54, 16 June 2022 (UTC)
