Immigration[edit]

Hello Judson, I just read your userpage, and I'd like to say something about the 6th-to-last point you made. Immigration-control is something that is necessary to maintain a stable country, as importing millions of non-Westerners will inevitably change our nation's culture (no matter what race they are; if we import millions of white Iranians or white Afghans, American culture will still change even though the newcomers are white). Even more dangerous is the importation of large numbers of Muslims. This is essentially suicidal, as a commited minority of Muslims are bent on destroying the West and imposing Sharia law.

We should not be so willing to surrender and abandon our nation's culture simply in the name of multiculturalism and the need to "raise diversity" and "cultural tolerance"...I used to think this way as well, but eventually I realized how foolish and naive this was. Diversity is not something that should be vigorously pursued if it means cultural suicide or if it is a serious threat to our nation.

This is just my opinion. You do not have to reply if you do not want to (you can even delete this if you feel so inclined, since it is your talkpage). Have a great day!

Question[edit]

There is a remarkable pattern of similarity on VFD between your votes and those of Old Right and Crevaner. Can you help me understand why that might be? Thank you. Michael Ward 07:44, 30 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Old Right, Crevaner and myself are all friends. We live near each other and have an Email correspondence. We've decided to occasionally collaborate on VFD. Nothing wrong with that. -- Judson 16:56, 30 Dec 2004 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. That seems plausible. Would you mind if I trust, but verify by having a developer check whether these usernames are using different ip's? Your ip itself would not be reported. It would be great to clear this up a little, as I am not the only one who has been commenting on the pattern.
As to "collaborating", I think that can be dangerous for the system, judging by your bloc votes on Clarke Theorem for which I can find absolutely no supporting evidence. Can you? Michael Ward 17:06, 30 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Bloc voting response[edit]

Judson, I got your E-Mail about votes-for-deletion. Fine, we'll stop working together on votes. -- Old Right 20:31, 30 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Gold, most blatantly obvious cover up ever. --Vision4bg 15:15, 1 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Second Cold War[edit]

Judson, you might find this an interesting page to keep. [1] -- Old Right 00:42, 18 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Hi, I notice that you and User:Old Right work together on VfD. I don't have any particular problem with that, but I was wondering why both of you voted to keep List of Social Democrats? The list was created by one user, who refused to discuss who should be on it instead decided to house it on a separate page. That user currently has a Request for Comment outstanding against them on this issue. The list is grossly inaccurate: Thabo Mbeki is not a social democrat. Why do you feel that the list should be kept? Lacrimosus 22:10, 21 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Charlotte Ross Image[edit]

Did you get my e-mail about the image. You vote to keep. -- Crevaner 12:44, 7 Apr 2005 (UTC)

The One[edit]

You're right, and I want to apologize for rolling back your edits too quickly. Best wishes, Meelar (talk) 19:53, Jun 15, 2005 (UTC)

Image Copyright Problem RE: Image:RachelMcAdams.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:RachelMcAdams.JPG. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law. We need you to specify two things on the image description page:

  • The copyright holder, and
  • The copyright status

The copyright holder is usually the creator. If the creator was paid to make this image, then their employer may be the copyright holder. If several people collaborated, then there may be more than one copyright holder. If you created this image, then you are the copyright holder.

Because of the large number of images on Wikipedia, we've sorted them using image copyright tags. Just find the right tag corresponding to the copyright status of this image, and paste it onto the image description page like this: {{TAGHERE}}.

There are 3 basic ways to licence an image on Wikipedia:

  • The copyright holder gets the best protection of his work by licencing their work under an open content license like the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike licence. If you have the express permission of the copyright holder to licence their work under the above licence, use the image copyright tag: {{cc-by-sa-2.5}}. The GNU Free Documentation License is another choice for licencing one's work. Again, if you have the express permission of the copyright holder, use the tag: {{GFDL}}.
  • The copyright holder can also release his work into the public domain, see here for images released into the public domain.
    • Images from certain sources are automatically release into the Public Domain. This is true for most governments like the federal United States government. (See here for images from the government of the USA and here for other governments) However not all governments release their work into the public domain, such as the UK government (See herefor images from the UK government). Non-free licence governments are listed here.
  • Also, in some cases, an image is copyrighted but allowed on Wikipedia because of Fair Use. To see if this image qualifies and then how to tag it, see Wikipedia:Fair use.

For any other sources of for more information see Wikipedia:Image copyright tags. Please remember that if you don't tag your images, they will be deleted.

P.S. If you have uploaded other images without including copyright tags, please go back and tag them. Also, please tag all images that you upload in the future.

If you have any questions, just leave a message on my talk page. Thanks again. Extraordinary Machine 19:54, 30 September 2005 (UTC)

Vinick Sullivan comparison[edit]

Hi. WRT the Vinick Sullivan comparison that you hve posted on their articles twice now, I have reverted it again. The external link you provide has no mention of any of their characters or the show. Wikipedia has a policy of no original research that I suggest you look over. Please do not add back these omments unless you can find a new verifiable clear and concise source making the comparison. Thank you. -Scm83x 23:48, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

The politics of the New York Times - your thoughts[edit]

We've been having a tiny edit battle over the political position of The New York Times. (You add "Political position: left-wing" to the info box. I remove it. Repeat.) If you do feel that The New York Times is left-wing, you need to be clear (the term left wing is heavily debated) and verify this opinion (present some evidence) before you can enshrine it as fact.

I've described my point of view at Talk:The New York Times, here and here. Please consider adding to the discussion.

Thanks! Omphaloscope » talk 00:13, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

Re:Gibson[edit]

I'll remove the image when you start denying what Gibson intended. And as for being biased; I'm not the one whitewashing every ignorant thing he has said. --DrBat 23:49, 21 January 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Silicate-logo.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Silicate-logo.gif. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. (ESkog)(Talk) 02:59, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Captain Trips[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

An editor has nominated Captain Trips, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Captain Trips and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 16:37, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
