Hi reply to your message

Hi mate thanks for your assistance, I am as you can see still very haphazardly using wikipedia and learning the difficult way. As you can see I am trying to get rference 136 to be reference 45, it is the same reference, if you can assist and let me know what i was doing wrong that would be great. Reference 45 is under the title attachment in adults, and 136 under criticisms from 1980's. Also i don't know if this is the correct way to respond to the message you left me or not, please advise.... —Preceding unsigned comment added by Robboholic (talkcontribs) 01:10, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Psychologist

Hi Fainites, The psychologist article needs some work. I started working on the opening paragraph. Could you help with that? ----Action potential discuss contribs 13:45, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

Sarner Litigation and Complaints

Dear Fainites:

First, I am not a banned user.

Second, what I have posted is not nonsense. The banning of the WordPress blogs is VERY well documented, as is the litigation involving Larry Sarner and Linda Rosa.

Didacticderivative (talk) 17:56, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

ATTN: FAINITES

Greetings.

Once again, I am not a banned user, it is not appropriate or productive for you to jump to such conclusions.

Second, I know this is not an "attack ACT" page, but a balanced approach must be taken. The removed blogs were pro-ACT. Mr. Sarner's reaction to their removal was made in a public forum.

Insofar as there was previous discussion of ACT members' credentials, Mr. Sarner's involvement in litigation is also appropriate, as it gives a fuller picture. Mr. Sarner is described in various places as a "mathematician and cryptographer"; a review of his inventions gives some insight into him.

Didacticderivative (talk) 22:11, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Complaints were made against the ACT website for alleged copyright violations under the DMCA, ie the quotes of those that ACT designate as attachment therapists. The way the DMCA works means that it is easier for a commercial host to remove a website/blog than take a stand against possibly false claims and risk a claim. ACT's website now appears to be in exactly the same form with another host therefore presumably the threats of legal action against ACT, shown on the Search for Survivors blog, were not carried out. I recall this because it meant changing the links to ACTs website. No doubt a complete history could be argued to serve the interests of "balance" but what on earth has that to do with ACT as an organisation? As for the other blog you've added as also removed from it's orginal host, firstly, it's not ACT and secondly, that also appears to have another host and appears to be in an identical format. So what? How does chasing websites and blogs from one host to another tell anybody anything about ACT? Similarly so what about Sarners past involvement in litigation about voting machines. What does "involvement" mean anyway? This is just the usual mudslinging for which the User:DPeterson entity, which I believe you to be, was indefinitely banned. The same personal attacks that were made all over Wikipedia were also made all over various blogs, as were subsequently these attacks, and these are now moving to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not here for you to pursue personal vendettas against real world enemies. Now - as you are most probably a banned user, and if not, at best a meat puppet, I don't propose to discuss this any further with you. Fainites barleyscribs 22:43, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Attachment theory

I am so, so sorry—I completely missed your message on my Talk page :( I'm moving this week, so my Wikipedia workings will be limited. Is there still anything I can do? Fvasconcellos (t·c) 13:34, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Books

Hello Fainites!

Thank you for your offer, as Awadewit has indeed sent me a looong list of books for my homework! But as I was just telling her, don't worry: I'll start with W H Smith here in Paris (now the largest English bookshop in France, I believe), where a lot of English litterature is available, and then I'll proceeed with the bigger public libraries (inexpensive, but generally effective, though a bit less with English books, I must admit).

Should be all right; but I'll remember turning to you if I can't get what I am looking for. --Azurfrog (talk) 22:52, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Hi again Fainites,
Thanks for the offer: I am taking due notice of it (even though, unfortunately, it is not a permanent offer...).
For the time being though, I believe I should be able to manage, at very little cost to myself, by taking advantage of big public libraries. My visit to WH Smith has not been quite so fruitful as hoped, even though I did find a few of the books I was looking for.
For the rest, I expect to be able to find what I need in said 'big public libraries', though I did not have time for a visit yet. In any case, I don't mean to read and use all of the list supplied by Awadewit, on top of what I have already used in my article: only her, I believe, would go to such lengths to source an article! MilesSmile.png
Best regards. --Azurfrog (talk) 18:32, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

tenents

Beautiful! That exactly what I was thinking. Couple of things, "The commonly observed attachment behaviour of toddlers of staying near familiar people would have had safety advantages in the environment of early adaptation which Bowlby saw as similar to current hunter gatherer societies, and has such advantages today." can be two sentences. The last sentence in the sandbox can go with where you start with "The attachment system is very robust..." and made into its own paragraph. That's it! It looks waaay better and is more in form in paragraph form, thank you for keeping on that comment. I'm gonna finish reading it through w/comments, I will, just been a bit distracted. ;) JoeSmack Talk 21:20, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

If you're wondering why I haven't started, this is pretty demanding reading. This is really embarrassing, but, apart from the more biology and neuroscience-oriented paragraphs, I'm trying to make enough sense of the content to actually improve the prose :P Fvasconcellos (t·c) 23:54, 22 October 2009 (UTC)
No, not at all; I may just be out of FA-reviewing shape at the moment—I'm working two deadlines, moving house, and getting less than three hours of sleep per night. I don't have any sort of psychology background either, and it's become difficult to just go through an article with reader's (not proofreader's or translator's) eyes these past few weeks.

Baiting

The general negative terms in which Mattisse and her mentors are regularly characterized in hyperbolic language is 'baiting' in my eyes. It is sure to frustrate, and get a rise out of, Mattisse. However, as a specific example, the complaints about her recent tagging (and the over-the-top tone/characterization thereof) seem to be a good example of baiting in my eyes. Anyone remotely familiar with the situation is aware that such overblown statements will fluster and consternate Mattisse. Poking Mattisse with a stick (unfairly), knowing full well the kind of rise it will get out of her, seems accurately called 'baiting' in this context. Calling it 'baiting' is being quite generous and tactful in my opinion, at least compared to far more blunt (and honest) labels. I hope this clarifies. Please feel free to leave me a message if you would like further examples, or if I can provide a better clarification of my views. Vassyana (talk) 17:11, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for your message. I can see that the general cynicism towards Mattisse and her mentors could seem like that to an observor. I think we are going to have to agree to disagree though. I am afraid that people who feel they have been targeted by Mattisse over long periods of time may well appear hypersensitive to those merely reading the diffs but they are unlikely to be persuaded otherwise. You might like to read this. But at the end of the day, does any of that matter now if a solution is found and the Plan works? I cannot see how assuming bad faith on the part of those who feel aggrieved helps. Nearly all of them are editors in good standing, not known for causing trouble, forming cabals or pursuing vendettas. Any "FAC editors" will have gone through countless tough reviews. How likely is it that this disparate collection of editors have banded together to bait and vilify just Mattisse for no good reason? Mattisses poking of other editors, particularly One Who has Asked Not To Be Named tends to increase the more trouble she gets into, derailing everything when there are trenchantly worded responses. Personally I stay out of the way except for official processes where evidence is required, but I do look out for things. I maintain that I have not seen anybody set out to "bait" Mattisse. I have seen some very strong and unfortunately worded views expressed about her in circumstances where, rightly or wrongly, others feel she is baiting them. I can see how those who do not come from the same perspective as people with histories with Mattisse could see this as a form of "wind-up" or baiting of Mattisse. In general I don't think it actually is. Let's hope the Plan works. Plenty of space for every one.Fainites barleyscribs 22:43, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

Cathedral of our Lady 7 (Piotr Kuczynski).jpg A noiseless patient spider,
I mark'd where on a little promontory it stood isolated,
Mark'd how to explore the vacant vast surrounding,
It launch'd forth filament, filament, filament, out of itself,
Ever unreeling them, ever tirelessly speeding them.

And you O my soul where you stand,
Surrounded, detached, in measureless oceans of space,
Ceaselessly musing, venturing, throwing, seeking the spheres to connect them,
Till the bridge you will need be form'd, till the ductile anchor hold,
Till the gossamer thread you fling catch somewhere, O my soul."

Oh. Er. Gosh. Well. The difficulty is, alot of being an admin seems to involve things like AfD and ANI and copyright. Not things I hang about at. However, I have been through various arbitrations/failed mediations/RfCs etc (not as the subject) so I am familiar with conflict and dispute resolution! I've recently been doing things like recent changes, pending changes and rollback as I've been having a bit of a break from serious content editing as I've been rather busy in RL. Used to do some reviewing too but not recently. Does this fit the bill? I rather suspect the tools might be wasted on me. Fainites barleyscribs 21:51, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

If you have any questions, get in touch on my talk page. WJBscribe (talk) 11:48, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

I didn't even know you were nominated. I keep RFA off my watchlist for a reason, but I'da voted support. --Moni3 (talk) 12:57, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

A belated congrats! Also, thanks for your support at my RfA, which has been closed as successful. Cheers, Nikkimaria (talk) 16:01, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Sort of kind of. I kinda went a bit nuts and did a personal thanks to (almost) everyone who !voted (thus the "semi"). I don't blame you for not going that route! Cheers, Nikkimaria (talk) 21:39, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

How could I have missed this? Anyway, enjoy the mop :) If you need anything, I'm all ears. Fvasconcellos (t·c) 22:03, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Attachment therapy

just a quick observation. an edit that removes 1,300 bytes of material from an article should probably not be marked 'minor'. --Rocksanddirt (talk) 23:04, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

I moved the material to a different section (patient recruitment) without deleting it and then went back and deleted it from the original section (prevalence) so no substantial material was removed overall.Fainites barleyscribs 23:12, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
fair enough. I just saw on my watchlist a substantive removal marked 'minor', I didn't check into it closely. --Rocksanddirt (talk) 23:22, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
Thanks on the userbox! I edited one based on a comment form louielouie on the fringe theories noticeboard talk page. feel free to add it and join the madness at FTN. --Rocksanddirt (talk) 23:27, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Speaking of attachment therapy, I noticed this letter in the Sunday New York Times (Ctrl-F for "Jean Mercer"). MastCell Talk 16:48, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
