Apolipoprotein E edit

Hi. Thanks for your contributions to the apolipoprotein E article and for your comments in Talk:Apolipoprotein E. One minor request however is especially when you delete material, please include a short edit sumary. It could be as short as "see talk" if you leave an explanation on the talk page. Otherwise, please carry on. I think you are doing a great job! Cheers. Boghog (talk) 22:12, 4 January 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

DRD4 edit

Hi. In the article dopamine receptor D4, you claimed that there were hundreds of other studies linking this receptor gene to sexual behavior in humans. Why not link multiple studies as references in one sentence, or even a metastudy if there is one? Please clarify what you mean by this not being validated enough. Thanks. ~AH1 (discuss!) 22:28, 19 June 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why? edit

This edit [1] is strange in my opinion. It removes a reference to an essay written about the movie by a scientist featured in the movie, and in its place puts a reference which doesn't ever mention the movie. I stated as much in my edit summary.

Have you seen the movie? What makes you think that Tierney's book has anything to do with the content? I think you should read the article I referenced, and then restore my edits. As you'll see, it is written by an anthropologist who, while agreeing with Dreger on Tierney, appreciates the importance of the movie. Dragging Tierney and Dreger into the description of this movie does a further disservice to the Yanomami, and is uncalled for. 75.142.11.87 (talk) 20:56, 24 November 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello-- I have watched the movie, read the peer-reviewed article which is referenced (and has been a part of the wikipedia article for sometime now) and read the essay you added as well. The movie is certainly more than Tierney's book--but I think whatever position one has on the controversy, it is quite clear that Tierney's work was seminal to this continuing controversy. For example see: http://www.documentary.org/magazine/anthropologists-behaving-badly-jose-padilhas-secrets-tribe-does-some-digging-its-own http://machimon.wordpress.com/2012/03/26/secrets-of-the-tribe-yanomamo/ The allegations in the movie extend Tierney's claims a bit, but are basically the same old (discredited) claims. This is well documented in the peer-reviewed work of Dreger. I think the essay you suggest could be effectively integrated into the article, but does not require such a big change and deletion of the previous information. Since I didn't have time to re-write the article I decided it was best to revert it first (retaining the helpful reference you added to the award the movie won). The disservice I am doing to the Yanomami by trying to nip fallacious information in the bud is not clear to me. I'm sure we can better wiki this and improve it together. Pengortm (talk) 21:12, 24 November 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

HRM Article Links edit

Hey, I'm sorry though I think I explained why I did it in the summary. Anyway, if you check the links they are NOT related to the article.

  • [2]: This link goes to a "spammy" site full of links related to science, but still with no clear information;
  • [3]: The second link goes to a celebrity-themed blog.

Sex at Dawn edit

Hi, Thanks for your input to the Sex at Dawn article. The reason that I had reverted your edit was because you updated the intro without any corresponding changes to the body of the article. The intro should reflect what is in the article. So, I'd be grateful if you could cite the third academic article in the article body. It will improve the article, and support the claim in the intro (which at the moment is unspported by a verifiable third party source). Please let me know if you have any questions. Peregrine981 (talk) 20:58, 30 November 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That makes sense. Good point. I believe the sentence in question in the intro does include references to the three scholarly articles. I'll try to find time to do the corresponding updates to the body text soon. Pengortm (talk) 07:07, 1 December 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've made the request here. I think it will be granted but it' a subjective judgement on the part of the Administrator who evaluates the request so we'll see. It may take a day or two for the request to be reviewed so be patient and I suggest that you stay away from the article in the meantime.

Christopher Ryan edit

I'm concerned about your edits on his page and Sex at Dawn. It's clear that the guy's academic credentials are shoddy (though I doubt that the admissions standards of the University of Missouri -- the alma mater of the guy trashing him -- are anything to write home about either). But that doesn't mean his thesis is incorrect. You appear to be devoted to emphasizing Ryan's shoddy resume, and the most critical reviews of the book. This is tendentious editing. Steeletrap (talk) 21:17, 15 July 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I welcome corrections or additions based in reliable sources. From what I can tell the scientists with relevant expertise have been the most critical of his book--but perhaps I've missed something or misinterpreted. --Pengortm (talk) 21:53, 15 July 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Please name one academic review of his book by a "scientist" other than the articles by the UMissouri anthropologist. Steeletrap (talk) 21:54, 15 July 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
As stated below the summary: "according to Ryan, the book was rejected by Oxford University Press after 2 of 3 peer reviews by primatologists were negative during the publisher's internal peer review process". Also, it is worth noting that Ellsworth's two reviews were published in a Peer Reviewed publication in a journal specifically oriented towards these types of issues. Further David Barash, an evolutionary biologist is also cited below the summary statement. While I had a substantial role in some of these edits, I am certainly not the only contributor and these were worked together in a collaborative wikipedia fashion. If you have further discussion on these articles, I think it might be more productive to have the discussion on those articles talk pages so other editors might chime in more easily.--Pengortm (talk) 22:49, 15 July 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
P.S. I do monitor the talk page of the Ryan and Sex at Dawn articles, so will see your comments there very quickly. Looking forward to fruitful dialogue and further improvements to the article. I appreciate your edits to Saybrook's page and agree that 'Rankings' is a better title for that section.--Pengortm (talk) 22:58, 15 July 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

sic edit

The purpose is to inform the reader that it was that way in the original. You can't inform the reader if he/she already understands that, which is the case for the cranberry excerpt from 1672; the "sics" just detract from the aesthetics of the passage. Of course I'm sure you agree a line has to be drawn; you wouldn't quote Chaucer's The Night's Tale, Part I as

Whilom [sic], as olde [sic] stories tellen [sic] us, Ther [sic] was a duc [sic] that highte [sic] Theseus;

I think the cranberry passage falls on the side of the line where you don't need sic. Just a thought.HowardJWilk (talk) 03:10, 15 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your help desk question edit

Rolfing, editing regarding "Rolfing is essentially identical to Structural Integration." edit

Wanted to discuss the suggested edits I had. My first edit was to change: "Rolfing is essentially identical to Structural Integration" to "Rolfing is the best-known brand of Structural Integration". You noted that the current source, which is a reliable source, states this, and asked for a different source to change it.

My second attempt noted that Rolfing is a service mark in the first sentence (referenced by the US Patent and Trademark page) and changed the sentence in question to "Rolfing is the more publicly known brand of Structural Integration and is essentially identical." I used one of the sources already referred to in the article (Myers), which states: "In the inevitable fractures and resultant legal battles which followed Dr. Rolf's death, the terms ‘Rolfing®’ and ‘Rolfer®’ became registered service marks of the Rolf Institute, which is now one of perhaps a dozen schools of Structural Integration. Therefore, ‘Structural Integration’, Dr. Rolf's original name for her work, is becoming the generic designation for this type of manipulative approach. The word ‘rolfing’—a nickname for her work which came from her time in the Esalen Institute in California, and a name she herself disliked and only reluctantly accepted—remains, for the time being, the more publicly known term for this type of work."

While it is true to say that Rolfing is essentially identical to Structural Integration as noted in the Sherman source, more needs to be stated to describe the full relationship between the two. You could say that Iyengar yoga is identical to yoga and Kleenex is identical to facial tissue, and while true, these statements leave something out: yoga is the umbrella term and Iyengar is a subset; facial tissue is a product and Kleenex is a brand name.

I'd like to know if you have other suggestions for how to convey this information. Perhaps the description of Rolfing being a service mark isn't relevant, but the fact that Rolfing is considered synonymous with Structural Integration is because it was the first and has the most name recognition, not because they are one and the same thing. After further consideration, I believe that my second attempt captures and documents this well.

Salut.

Gender pay gap lead edit

I've adjusted the lead so that sentence adheres better to the source. I believe the following quotes from the source are sufficient to back up the claim made in the lead: "...there has been important, significant progress for women. On the other hand, there is still a gender pay gap" and "...there is evidence that although discrimination against women in the labor market has declined, some discrimination does still continue to exist."

Stereotype threat edit

Regarding your recent reversion at Stereotype threat, please see my reminder about WP:TALKDONTREVERT on the article's talk page, and note that this is a policy rather than a suggestion from an essay. I hope that we can find a way to work together collaboratively to improve the article, and reconcile our apparently conflicting views about what constitutes neutrality on the topic. As I've mentioned, it seems to me that only by discussing each issue on a case-by-case basis will this be possible. Generalrelative (talk) 22:13, 30 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Stereotype threat; that means that you are repeatedly changing content back to how you think it should be, when you have seen that other editors disagree. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus, rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Points to note:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made;
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes and work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.Due to repeated violations of WP:TALKDONTREVERT, I am offering a final warning here about edit warring before seeking resolution. You have repeatedly ignored good-faith attempts to engage on the talk page and have only done so in an extremely fragmentary way, responding to policy-based arguments with personal opinion and then reverting immediately without allowing time for discussion. This shows that you're not open to being persuaded, which is highly non-collaborative and contrary to community norms. Therefore please review WP's basic policies such as WP:CONS and WP:BRD before engaging further. Generalrelative (talk) 17:13, 1 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Examples include this revert within 60 minutes of an editor making an edit or—the reason I noticed it—this edit within 90 minutes of mine.

A note on hounding, civil POV-pushing, and edit warring edit

In an edit summary just now you wrote I hope you are not WP:HOUNDING.[4] Good of you to include a note of uncertainty rather than an outright accusation but in any case it should be clear by now that I am definitely concerned about "related problems on multiple articles", i.e. a pattern of civil POV-pushing on your part on topics related to race and gender. That's a legitimate reason for me to check in on your contribution history now and then, especially when I see you making what appear to me to be tendentious edits on pages that are already on my watchlist. My purpose is not to disturb you but to protect the encyclopedia from harm. Indeed, it's evident from other remarks you've made in recent edit summaries (e.g. [5]) and on talk pages in the past (e.g. at Talk:Stereotype threat) that you have similar concerns about me. It should come as no surprise then that –– even when assuming good faith –– I am concerned that your biases may be adversely affecting the appropriateness of your contributions. Ultimately it will be up to the community to decide which of us is correct when the two of us disagree, and we will need to observe policies and guidelines when working out what remains in an article until our differences of opinion can be resolved. Continual recourse to edit warring, as you should surely know by now, will not result in your desired outcome being adopted. Generalrelative (talk) 00:38, 17 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Rather than send you this template again, I'll write something in my own words about your edit warring at How to Be an Antiracist: edit warring is not about number of edits, so you cannot keep making "just" one revert because it is only one. When someone raises WP:DUE as a concern both on the talk page and in their edit summary, a failure to address this comment means there is no justification for a revert. You can be blocked from editing for further edit warring, regardless of whether it is only one revert in a 24 hour period or more. — Bilorv (talk) 17:15, 15 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Pointy revert edit

Hi - so, an IP editor makes this edit, without leaving an edit summary. Another editor reverts them, also without an edit summary. Why do you feel that the lack of edit summary in the revert is sufficient reason for you to reinstate the IP's edit? WP:BRD suggests that it's the onus is on the IP to make the case for why their edit was an improvement - why jump in with a revert of your own?

Additionally, WP:Twinkle marks reverts as minor automatically. There's no reason to revert any edit because it was "wrongly" marked as minor. EvergreenFir (talk) 18:09, 21 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
