Tzemach Tzedek Responsa Not Applicable to Fellatio in HalachaEdit

The Responsa of the Tzemach Tzedek referenced is not relevant to the discussion of halacha of felatio. His responsa is clearly regarding a woman who has a medical condition and should not get pregnant, whether she can use a contraceptive. If anything, the responsa implies the opposite of how it is portrayed in the article. The responsa implies that ONLY vaginal sex with a contraceptive is allowed.

Then you should've stated a simplified version of that in the edit summary when making that change. When sourced material is removed without an edit summary, it looks like someone is simply removing information they would rather not be seen. Communicating the reason for your edits helps your fellow editors understand what you're doing. --Nat Gertler (talk) 21:28, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

My apologies, I am not a seasoned wiki editor. If there is a way to amend the Edit Summary, I would certainly do that.

There's no way to amend, but I have added your comments to the talk page so that people can see the reason. It's just something to keep in mind in the future. (We're all new here at some point.) --Nat Gertler (talk) 22:20, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

The Artist Within booksEdit

Please find I've added the the info (with references) to pages of artists who agreed to to be photographed and included in the project - not as promotional - but because it documents that artist within their creative environment - especially as many of those artists in the collection contained within those two tomes have now passed. The books remain a reference point of popular culture artists from the 20th century, and specifically for seeing that artist in their working environment.Martinishot77 (talk) 21:50, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Further, venues such as The Academy Awards, The Eisner Awards, and WP:RS publications such as The Atlantic Magazine, The Washington Post, and Newsday, have utilized portraits from within the books.

I believe-for these reasons-that the addition of the info on those artists pages is valid. Happy to discuss furtherMartinishot77 (talk) 22:08, 15 June 2019 (UTC)


help me to edit with Flutter (comic series) please


See this page Flutter (comic series) and you will know

I saw that page and while it could use general improvement, I didn't see any specific obvious thing. That particular comic is not one that I know and could say "hey, this is what needs addressing." --Nat Gertler (talk) 20:38, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

Grounded VideosEdit

Regarding about your post [1]

Yet, if that source is not acceptable to that Vyond page, then why that "grounded videos" is a huge phenomenon, that spread all over the internet? It sounds like you don't even care to add that detail. But please explain why you don't want everybody to be aware about "grounded videos" stuff.

Wikipedia is not meant to be a site for new observations, but a summary of significant material found in reliable sources. Without that, anyone can just put anything on a Wikipedia page, and it becomes useless. If it is such a huge phenomenon, surely you can find a reliable source covering that, right? All the various attempts to add statements about "grounded videos" lack that sourcing. -Nat Gertler (talk) 19:10, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

Jason RavnsborgEdit

Sorry I am new but you deleted my posts about AG Jason Ravnsborg of South Dakota. It was in the news that he was one of only 5 AGs in the country that agreed to the Sprint/T-Mobile merger. He was first one of 5, as there are many (like 13) suing yet, so to say he did what all the other AGs did I think is not accurate. He spoke at the news conference and so I disagree that he did what every other AG did, looks like the leading voice for the AGs to me. I also provided 2 sources that talked about the situation and quotes from him, one from the Chicago Tribune and one from One in state and one out of state. I did not know how to write it on the comment page where you deleted it, so I came here, I hope that is ok.SDEditor101 (talk) 16:25, 27 July 2019 (UTC)

The comment about what every other AG did was in relation to the Equifax Settlement, which was something that every AG supported and that was sourced solely to the press release from the SDAG office. But in general I am concerned with trying to list every action that he takes as AG as significant. As for the Sprint matter, The KELO coverage was specifically about him making the announcement, which made it local interest. The Chicago Tribune had a single sentence on him. If you wish to raise the issue on the talk page, go to Talk:Jason Ravnsborg -- you'll see one of the tabs at the top is marked "new section". Click that, and you'll get an editor set up for starting a new conversation on that page. --Nat Gertler (talk) 16:40, 27 July 2019 (UTC)I put a comment there, but I was in the process of editing here when you responded, but it sure looks like the posts you deleted are very similar to other AGs who signed on to cases, like Ken Paxton of Texas...have you looked at his page? He seems to have agreed to settlements similar to the Equifax example, but the other sprint one it seems like only 5 AGs involved and Ravnsborg was taking questions from reporters at the conference. Seems bold to me to be one of only 5 on such a large merger dealSDEditor101 (talk) 16:51, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks "Nat" (if I may be so familiar) for your providing assistance and advice to other editors. I've had very few requests for same in the 13 years I've been here, but am always happy to give feedback. Activist (talk) 06:54, 30 July 2019 (UTC)
Glad to! If we don't bring new editors up to speed, then we're stuck handling the edits ourselves forever! --Nat Gertler (talk) 21:08, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

Trying to clean the toiletEdit

Thanks for this; unfortunately as long as there are editors like Softlavender adding and restoring poorly-sourced material to BLPs, and the community thinking this is ok, Wikipedia will be vulnerable to external forces which it may well find very uncomfortable. I despair at the direction it has gone; it was such a noble idea. So long, and thanks again. -- (talk) 15:16, 4 August 2019 (UTC)
