Lyrics

Could you quote me the part of Wikipedia that says it's OK to link to a lyric directory? AFAIK, lyrics are copyrighted material, and as LyricsDIR don't have permission, linking to the site violates WP:EL#Links_to_be_used_occasionally, which states that: Linking to copyrighted works is usually not a problem, as long as you have made a reasonable effort to determine that the page is not violating copyright per contributors' rights and obligations. Knowingly and intentionally directing others to a site that violates copyright has been considered a form of contributory infringement in the United States..

I will ask you again, as you haven't answered my question: Could you quote me the part of Wikipedia that says it's OK to link to a lyric directory? HawkerTyphoon 22:19, 29 August 2006 (UTC)
I haven't received a response yet, regarding which policy says that lyrics directories are acceptable, as you quoted here. Thanks, HawkerTyphoon 01:47, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Are you always on Wikipedia?

On a more light-hearted topic, I do have to ask. You seem to be Johnny-on-the-spot with responding to me :) Cheers Equinox137 05:59, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

It is addictive, yes. By the way, I added a category back; if you believe it doesn't fit in this one either, perhaps a "University shootings" rather than a "School shootings" category would be more appropriate? Other longtime editors at the Kent State shootings article seem to be staying out of the discussion. It's hard (though not impossible) to develop a consensus with just two editors discussing things. Badagnani 06:04, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, I agree. I generally try to avoid editing politics or hot issues such as this because it's an exercise in futility in the long run, but some of what's in the KS article stuck out at me. It's kind of tough to categorize this when it boils down to it, because KS was a rare event in history. The school shootings category doesn't seem to fit, because what they have there is generally columbine/jonesboro/etc type of incidents and this is more politically related. However it was a school shooting obviously because it happened at a school, so if you believe it belongs there, I'll leave it alone. This happened 36 years ago and it's not going to make a bit of difference on how it's looked at either way. However I strongly disagree with it being "state terrorism". I'm looking at it from an officer's perspective - if I think I see a weapon and aggressive behavior on the suspect, I'm drawing my weapon and he's going down - that simple. I'd rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6. Given that, you'd have to categorize every questionable shoot in American history as "state terrorism" - and the soldiers in this incident weren't even convicted by a compentent court.

Kent State shootings

Contrary to the claim in your edit summary, I did back up each edit with evidence and quotes from the actual WP articles, such as the very first paragraph of the State terrorism article. You don't appear to have read any of them all the way through. I've explained the category as well. Over and above this, please give me a reason why I should not report you at this point for 3RR. Best, Badagnani 09:32, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

No sir, you have not. It was NOT an incident of state terrorism, it was a RIOT where the National Guard was called to restore order and opened fire because they claimed they were in fear for their lives.
Give YOU a reason? Sorry if I don't bow down before you, but maybe a good reason is that you violated it easily yourself, on top of the personal insults. Equinox137 09:42, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
First, please do give me the four instances of reverts that I have performed in a 24-hour period. Second, you really have not read the articles straight through. If you had, you would have read the following:
The President's Commission on Campus Unrest avoided the question of why the shootings happened, but harshly criticized both the protesters and the Guardsmen, concluding that "the indiscriminate firing of rifles into a crowd of students and the deaths that followed were unnecessary, unwarranted, and inexcusable."
On June 13, 1970, President Nixon established the President's Commission on Campus Unrest which he charged to study the dissent, disorder, and violence breaking out on college and university campuses across the nation.[10] The Commission's establishment was a consequence of the fatal violence at Kent State and Jackson State. The Commission issued its findings in a September 1970 report that concluded that the Ohio National Guard shootings on May 4, 1970 were unjustified. The report said:
"Even if the guardsmen faced danger, it was not a danger that called for lethal force. The 61 shots by 28 guardsmen certainly cannot be justified. Apparently, no order to fire was given, and there was inadequate fire control discipline on Blanket Hill. The Kent State tragedy must mark the last time that, as a matter of course, loaded rifles are issued to guardsmen confronting student demonstrators."
No matter how you may wish things to have transpired that day, the fact is that many of the Guard members, whether or not they claimed self-defense, were aiming at particular students and firing repeatedly at them, with two of the students not even having participated in the protests. Even Nixon's commission found the self-defense claim to have been spurious. Badagnani 09:45, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
You presume a lot, I did read it. The fact that a presidential commission that was 1,000 miles away from the scene at the time of the incident says it's so, doens't make it so. Everybody's good at armchair quarterbacking and 20/20 hindsight. Furthermore, where's the backing for your statement that the soldiers "were aiming at particular students and firing repeatedly at them"? Even the all-mighty commission never said that. Do you have a problem with soldiers and cops, Badagnani? Or maybe the Ohio National Guard? Does the fact that you're from Kent cloud your judgement on this issue? Either way, the fact remains about the commission that THEY WEREN'T THERE.
I'm still waiting to hear why this belongs in either the school shooting or state terrorism categories. All the incidents in the school shooting category have to do with a mentally instable shooter attacking students.
State terrorism is defined by wikipedia itself as controversial term, which means violence against civilians perpetrated by a national government or proxy state. Whether a particular act is described as "terrorism" may depend on whether the International community considers the action justified or necessary, or whether the described act is carried out as part of an armed conflict." Even the Wikipedia article admits that it's dependent on point of view.
Since the National Guard was called in response to the riots and not deliberately or proactively terrorizing any protestor or studend by any account, how does this qualify as "state terrorism?" Equinox137 10:00, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Uranium trioxide

The chart from Levinskii, Y.V. (1974) with the Uranium oxides at temperatures and pressures shows in the left upper corner UO2.8 UO3G .This is interpreted by LINM as UO3-gas. If he would look closer! There ae several other G in the chart and all of them are seperated from the formula by a comma (,) meaning that at this line the solide of the mention composition turns into a not defined gasphase. For example UO2;L2,G or any other number on the chart. LIMN will not get it. I don not have time or patience enough to expain to him!--Stone 08:46, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

I disagree. There is plenty of reason to believe that the gas is pure as UO3(g) at and above the temperatures and pressures above the curve indicated, and a ("not defined") mixture of UO2(g) and UO3(g) at any of the ",G" lines below it. Even if this is not the case, the fact remains that the comma is missing, and the interpretation is verifiable even if it is not the truth. The standard for inclusion in Wikipedia is verifiability, not truth. LossIsNotMore 01:35, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for your continued defense against those who make personal attacks against me on Talk:Uranium trioxide.

Would you please at least put a {{POV}} at the top, or a similar template on the "Health and safety hazards" section, of the Uranium trioxide, article so that readers are directed to the discussion on talk page? I would, but you know I am forbidden from editing that article. Although I believe WP:IAR certainly applies here, it would not be worth the hassle. LossIsNotMore 01:29, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Hi B. Thanks for your response. I have watched the film through.

It presents 'prima facie' evidence to suggest the need for more investigation. --Nemonoman 21:15, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

none

Hi, I notice you've several times corrected "none are" to "none is", recently with the comment 'Grammar: "none has" is correct because the word "none" is a contraction of "not one," and thus always singular. Please feel free to look this up.' I'm not sure where to look this up. I did do a bit of googling and found this:

'With mass nouns, you have to use the singular. ("None of the wheat is...") With count nouns, you can use either the singular or the plural. ("None of the books is..." or "None of the books are...") Usually, the plural sounds more natural, unless you're trying to emphasize the idea of "not one", or if the words that follow work better in the singular.
'The fullest (prescriptive) treatment is in Eric Partridge's book Usage and Abusage (Penguin, 1970, 0-14-051024-9). In the original edition Partridge had prescribed the singular in certain cases, but a rather long-winded letter from a correspondent persuaded him to retract.'

So according to this, "none is" is always correct, but "none are" is not always wrong. Comments? Citations? -- Rsholmes 13:40, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Master sauce -> red cooking/braising sauce

Haha, I'm no expert on Chinese sauces or soups. The page gives a good summary about are flavourings for soy braising (鹵) which is often applied to everything from meat to tofu, and is reused, sometimes for years or decades. While there are some informative gems in the article, there are a few gaping inaccuracies in it. First, I would not say that there is a Chinese "master sauce" (lu shui). To me, saying "a Chinese 'master sauce'" would indicate that most other Chinese sauces are derived from it. However, while one can use lu shui as a dipping sauce, it is certainly not case that it is a requirement for any Chinese sauces, or even Chinese cooking. I would go as far to say that lu shui is in fact more a concentrated flavoured broth than anything else.

Second, although alcohol (jiu) is often used in making lu shui broth, no attempt is made to keep the alcohol content in the liquid. The reason why the technique works well is because of (1) the slow wet heat in cooking, which tenderizes and flavours the meat/main ingredient while dissolving proteins into the broth, (2) the flavour concentrated sauce, which is fortified by the continued addition of the main ingredients, the flavourings, and various spices, finally (3) the "age" of the sauce, with it various degraded or partially degraded chemical components likely contribute to the richness and complexity of the old lu shui, more than a new lu shui that was just created.

Perhaps instead of writing a master sauce article, we should create/modify a lu shui or lu article instead? Sjschen 21:34, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi Badagnani,

I do not have any problem in general with your edits to the Vinegar article but it would be easier to review your edits if you made repeated edits to the article by using the Show Preview option instead of the Save Page option and once ALL the edits have been made then use Save Page. That way, we can see all your edits with one page load and not many.

Stamp image usage in Euryale ferox

Hi, it doesn't matter whether the Soviet post office has a problem with the use of their stamp images, it's against WP's fair use policy, which is more restrictive. You would have to make a case for the significance of this image being on a stamp, which is unlikely because this issue was purely decorative and to some extent aimed at collectors rather than postal users (so in fact they would care about our using this image, because it could cut into their stamp sales if people can get the image for free).

Did you have something like this in mind? User:Visviva/Test3 (see User talk:Visviva/Test3 for demo). I replaced the table row division with a carriage return. It would also be possible to make the cell borders invisible, but that tends to create browser-compatibility issues.

I should advise you that name tables for Chinese (and Japanese etc.) articles have been discussed before, and the reception was not favorable. Would recommend raising the issue at Wikipedia:Manual of Style (China-related articles) before putting the template (which looks very nice) to widespread use. -- Visviva 13:26, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, I see you already have done so. Cheers, -- Visviva 13:28, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
Try it now; there were a couple of extra carriage returns hiding in the code. (Of course, removing them does make the code a little harder to follow). -- Visviva 13:42, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
OK, added the bar (it and the caption are conditional upon the presence of an image, since having the extra bar without an image is a bit ugly). I used regular HTML for the table defs within the conditional, since that other stuff gives me a headache; you may want to adapt the code somewhat.
There used to be just such a bar in Template:Koreanname, but I see it has disappeared... wonder what happened with that. I may have removed it myself in a fit of excessive brevity. -- Visviva 14:01, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
Actually I see it was removed by Calcwatch back in February due to formatting issues; however, those seem to have been tied to the old HiddenStructure hack. Maybe I can put it back in now. -- Visviva 14:07, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Image & caption

Hi,

Added variables {{{img}}}, {{{width}}}, and {{{caption}}} to {{Koreanname}}:

  • {{{width}}} defaults to 250 (you can set to "n" for default image size)...
  • {{{caption}}} is used as the alt text for the image, as well as the actual caption.
  • {{{img}}} is the ABC in Image:ABC

The old {{{image}}} variable is just a text field, so you can add a caption that way too; i.e. [[Image:Imagename.jpg]]<br/><small>Caption caption caption.</small>. However, this more systematic approach seems better.

Hi Badagnani - there's a Wikispecies link template similar to the one for linking to Commons; see e.g. Adenanthos for an example. Just copy it from there and paste it wherever you want to use it, changing the sci name to the name on the page it is being used in (I think that's what you're wanting, if not, let me know!). Species lists from wikispecies can be copied across, as they're under the same gfdl license. - MPF 09:35, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

Image:Mascarpone.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:Mascarpone.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a free image could reasonably be found or created. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{Replaceable fair use disputed}}
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives 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. – Quadell (talk) (random) 17:49, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

Image:Tiramisu.jpg isn't a photo of Tiramisu, it is a photo of Mascarpone, see the image description. Do you understand that fair use images are only allowed on Wikipedia in a limited number of circumstances? There is no justification for replacing a suitable free image with one claiming 'fair use'. Look at the Mascarpone article in different languages, they either don't have a photo, or use the free one. If you don't like the free replacement I would encourage you to make your own.

metallic

If your playing produces a metallic klick, you are using the wrong kind of strings ;) This kind of playing craves gut-strings, see the section on strings in the article, which also covers this. Gut strings were, for instance, used by most big band players in the twenties and early thirties. Later, after the introduction of metal strings, this technique became near obsolete in main stream music.

Best regard

/HenkeB 00:06, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

I would probably describe the sound produced by slapping gut strings as similar to a somewhat low pitched snare drum, while slapped metal strings (as heard from rockabilly band and such) sounds somewhat similar to a rimshot, in my ears. The jazz bands I've heard employing this technique "live" (as opposed to on records) have used gut strings (have you read the section "strings" yet btw?). Regarding our little dispute, I would suggest the article clearly separates between the two kinds of strings - and sounds :)

Here in sweden, there is a twelve man band (called kustbandet) which mixes New Orleans jazz with early swing music, such as Duke Ellington (they also play the occasional modern jazz composition, but then in a swing-fashion). They made great recordings in the early seventies, hade a little quality dip in the eigthies, but have recovered well and are still very active. They have toured in many countries, even in countries like India (somewhat amasing for a trad-band!) and was once elected to play at the Nobel price ceremony "ballroom dance" (after the dinner - don't know the correct term) around ten years ago.

Thanks /HenkeB 02:41, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

"...with either kind of string there's a sharpness (maybe somewhat like a "crack" of a snare drum rather than a "click") to the attack which is contrasting to the mellow, round depth of the bass string's plucking -- though the metal strings create a sharper attack."

Ok, that's fair enough!

As you wrote you enjoy (swedish) folk music and are also into minimalism, I can't resist recommending Jan Johansson, which made a few records in the sixties (before being killed in a car crash) where he played traditional folk songs on the piano with a light jazz touch, often accompanied by acoustic bass only (played by Georg Riedel). The most beautiful, in most peoples opinion, are Jazz på Svenska and Jazz på Ryska. I still listen to those records.

/HenkeB 04:20, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

I didn't know that one, but as the convolute says "featuring Jim Hall" it sounds promising. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to play the samples right now (unrealplayer hangs for some reason). Looking at the list however, I discovered one traditional composition also played by Jan Johansson on Jazz på Svenska, called De sålde sina hemman.

Thanks for the tip, I appreciate it!

/HenkeB 05:39, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

I'm certainly no expert, but I think Grieg, like Bartok for instance, was inspired also by folk music. I don't know about you, but I personally prefer Jan Johanssons way of playing folk music, but Art Farmer's beautiful lyrical tone and Jim Hall's great rythmic soloing makes me want this record for those reasons.

Good night, and again, thanks for the tip.

紅糟 or 紅棗

紅糟 is in fact red yeast rice and probably mis-translated as red jujubes, thought it may be the case that both ingredients are possible. I don't think there is much missing on that list otherwise, except the mold cultures and flavourings (salt, sugar, huang jiu, red yeast). If I see it I'll check it out. Congratulations on the purchase in anycase, Hwang ri xiang (黃日香) of Di xi (大溪) is a very famous maker of tofu products in Taiwan, highly esteemed, with more than a hundred years history. They make dixi dried tofu, which many Taiwanese veg. ond non-veg alike eat like beef jerky. Maybe you've tried it? Sjschen 12:42, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Wow, in re-read the top, it really sounds like an advertisement doesn't it... To be honest, I have never seen jujubes in pickled tofu, whether for flavour or colour. Is it wrong? That I don't know, but like I said I have never seen it before in the ingredients. Sjschen 18:38, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Good idea :) Sjschen 22:12, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Hold that thought... I think 紅糟 might actually be red glutinous rice! Error on my part, was not thinking rightSjschen 22:15, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Okay...I admit that I don't know. It can be a purple hulled rice (紅糟米, not glutinous), but some people also use it for referring to red yeast rice (just 紅糟). This is confusing Sjschen 22:19, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Nevermind...let's just say it is red yeast rice in liquid or paste form. Can always change it sometime... Sjschen 22:26, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Now that I think of it's probably the Taiwanese/Min way of saying it. Sjschen 22:27, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Look good! Sjschen 23:40, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

I would be surprised if it was the by product of a wine making process. But then again this stuff does saccrifys and dyes the rice. Sjschen 11:46, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Good point. Maybe it's both grown on it's own and also taken from shaoxing wine making? Sjschen 11:59, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Blanking of my userpage

Jjigae

Well, we had a little dust-up over that around 10 months ago, with some averring that hanja, and particularly the absence of hanja, was largely irrelevant for many topics. That led to the creation of a farcical number of alternative name-table templates, revert wars over the removal or inclusion of hanja, and ultimately (the consensus solution) making the "hanja" field optional. (This was before ParserFunctions.)

With Appleby banned, these problems may not recur, and I guess personally I have no problem with "hanja=none." However, I think it's probably best to put such details of etymology/onomastics on Wiktionary and link the wikt: entry through the name table; that's what I've done for jjigae. Cheers, -- Visviva 03:14, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

Not for the modern form of the word; there are no hanja that correspond to 찌 (jji). There is probably a hanja representation of the archaic spelling 치개, but that is more likely to be a hanjaization of the original native Korean word, which would appear to come from 찌다. -- Visviva 03:49, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

As a general rule, there are no hanja for syllables beginning with ㄲ, ㄸ, ㅃ, ㅆ, ㅉ, ㅋ in modern Korean. AFAIK, the only exceptions to this rule are 쌍·, 씨·, 쾌· (plus other obscure hanja) and 끽·. Wikipeditor 21:52, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

The pronounciation of Ejiao

Many Chinese characters have more than one pronounciation. 阿 is one of that. The word "Ejiao" came from the "jiao" (glue) from "Dong-e" 东阿 county in Liaocheng city. (pls check the content in that article). To pronounce it "a" or "ar" is simply wrong. To say "the first syllable is 'a'" is not correct. Well, why is the county called Dong-e, not Dong-a? That's the decision of people there. http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%E9%98%BF is wrong (I am not planning to contribute there currently though). Another proof is that the product, "ejiao", use this name. You can check that picture.

Another example of pronounciation change in the name of place is Lu'an 六安. I believe that if you know Chinese, you should know that 六 (liu) usually means 6. But it's called "lu" here.

BTW, I am a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese. Cheers.--Mongol 04:06, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

Dizi

Thanks, actually I don't know that much about dizi players, I only re-wrote the info I got from the Grove Dictionary of Music! I'm afraid I don't know about Yu Xunfa, so I can't really say whether he should be in the article or not. But I feel the article should stick to major players of historical importance with info on their significance, and not become like the erhu or guzheng articles where it's just a long list of names (the inclusion of some seems doubtful to me). LDHan 18:38, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

Yeah I agree about the list of players in the erhu and guzheng articles, moving the lists to their own article would be a good idea. LDHan 13:22, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

Article about Wikipedia Users

Hello,

I am a freelance writer working on an article about the wide array of people who make Wikipedia their life, their passion, their pastime. Wikipedia “addicts” if you will. I’m looking for people just willing to tell their story of how they got sucked into the intellectual whirlwind that is Wikipedia, how you got started editing, how the obsession grew, and what you spend your time focusing on these days? Do you write articles from scratch? Is your main push toward one particular type of article? Do you patrol for typos and errors, or spend your time diligently fixing vandalism? Do you take part in the “social aspects” of Wikipedia; engaging in animated discussions or decorating your user page with all sorts of internet memes? Have you forced yourself to take a “Wikipedia break”? If so, what’s your 20/20 hindsight on the obsession? Basically I’m just trying to get an idea of what it’s like for various Wikipedia “addicts.” If you are interested in participating, please email me at brianrhodges@gmail.com

If anybody else, other than this user is interested in participating, feel free to email me as well. This article is intended to be a light informational piece, nothing too heavy or controversial, just merely introducing readers to a subculture that they likely had no idea existed. So please don’t email me with your conspiracy theories, or your grudge against the Wikipedia hierarchy… unless it directly applies to your overall experience with the site. This article is about the USERS, not about the pros and cons of the site itself.

Thanks,

Haven't heard from you much lately, hope things are going well. I just wanted to say thanks for all of your work on articles related to Korean cuisine, and to invite you to join us at Wikipedia:WikiProject Korea. If you're interested, we've just been getting ready to start a working group on cuisine there; your input would be indispensable. Cheers, -- Visviva 13:52, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

It wouldn't really involve much. Think of it as sort of like a mini-WikiProject. No obligation, just a place to talk about strategy, general problems (for example, the hanja thing), useful tools, priorities, etc. Cf. Wikipedia:WikiProject Korea/DPRK... The WG would be at Wikipedia:WikiProject Korea/Cuisine, tho' it hasn't been created yet. I'd do it now, but the dog is going to gnaw my leg off if I don't take him for a run. Feel free to start it yourself if you'd like. Cheers, -- Visviva 03:57, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

About 竹笙

Hi. It is interesting to see an Amercian want to know the difference between 荪 and 笙. Actually, 笙 is a musical instrument in ancient China while 荪 is the name of a fragrance fungus as you can find it in 说文解字 and 楚辞.

Therefore, we can see that 竹荪 is the correct selling.

BTW, as you can understand some Chinese, why don't you come to the Chinese Wiki? 222.71.223.137 04:54, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{Replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives 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. --Chowbok 18:01, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

I've reverted your revert on Guy Goma. I left my reasoning on the talk page... ---J.S (t|c) 19:38, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Oh, I also left a message for you on Talk:Graham Wiggins. ---J.S (t|c) 19:42, 12 November 2006 (UTC)
Ufortunately, copyright policy is absolutely non-negotiable. We cannot knowikngly link to media which is infringing on another's copyright. This means any media without licensing information cannot be linked either. In this case, the video clip has no licensing information and is obviously a copyright violation anyway, since it's a TV recording. If you reinsert it again, you may be blocked. Please remember to remain civil at all times. This is unacceptable. Dmcdevit·t 20:03, 12 November 2006 (UTC)
We cannot link to media without copyright licensing. That is why this media cannot be linked. The permission given you can't be independently verified. If a license and source was put in the YouTube description, then it would be possible to use. Dmcdevit·t 20:38, 12 November 2006 (UTC)
You have been blocked for 24 hours for repeatedly adding the copyright infringing link, most recently in [5]. I have explained yet again why we cannot do this [6]. Please moderate your tone, as well, as unfounded accusations of vandalism are consdered incivility. --—Preceding unsigned comment added by Dmcdevit (talkcontribs)

thoughtful manner

No link was added. Please think (and actually read the edit!) before acting! I have asked for you to edit in a more thoughtful manner before; please take me up on that

Maybe YOU need to edit in a thoughtful manner and read your OWN edits. ---J.S (t|c) 20:43, 12 November 2006 (UTC)
