I didn't change anything you edited. All I did was add a warning label to the website. Aurelius (talk)23 February 2016 (EST)

Response to your inquiry.[edit]

Nothing more than a shared pet peeve as far as I know. User:GrammarCommie

Your revert to Donald Trump.[edit]

Hello, Bongolian.

I wonder why you revert this edit saying that Trump is a Luddite.

Here is an article on POLITICO that you'll see first:

Cheers. -- Bryan See (talk) 19:16, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

Hello Bryan See. I reverted it because there is no evidence on the page for the claim that Trump is a Luddite. Being obsessed with a smart phone and Fox News would seem to be evidence to the contrary. @Bryan See Bongolian (talk) 19:22, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
He blames computers for making the world worse, complicating it very greatly. He called computers a mixed bag. I am very sure. And he's stirring up backlash against tech. -- Bryan See (talk) 19:26, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
If that's true, you need to first put something on the Trump webpage to that effect with a good reference. @Bryan See Bongolian (talk) 19:33, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
But where? This page or Policies of Donald Trump? Or both? I think any of them will do. Thanks. @Bongolian -- Bryan See (talk) 10:00, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
I'm not convinced it belongs at all, given that they're strong evidence to the contrary — smart phone & TV addiction. Bongolian (talk) 16:46, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
@Bryan See, I've warned you before. Don't put unreferenced additions into the Trump page. Also, it's inadvisable to get involved with edit wars with @CowHouse. Talk it over on the Trump talk page before things get out of hand. In my view the Luddite and Baba Vanga additions do not belong on the main Trump page, but you're welcome to argue your case on the Trump talk page. Bongolian (talk) 18:27, 28 September 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, @Bongolian. I know what must be done. -- Bryan See (talk) 06:23, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
@Bongolian, I know. But I'd like to argue my case here. Trump does have a lot of contempt on digital technology, especially computers. He wants people to wean every tech off. Furthermore, he call it quits for science and tech since Day One. -- Bryan See (talk) 08:35, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
You should argue your case on the talk page for Trump, not here, @Bryan See. Bongolian (talk) 18:56, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

Dumpster dive thank you[edit]

Thank you for diving into the levitation article.Th hug.gifHamburgerPlate (talkstalk) 03:51, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

You're welcome, @CheeseburgerFace. I just had to rise to the occasion. Bongolian (talk) 03:55, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

Question about copyright infringement[edit]

Is this picture, uploaded by User:Onacompass, copyright infringement? I'm asking you specifically since you have already warned Onacompass against uploading copyrighted material. Thanks. CowHouse (talk) 05:25, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

It's hard to tell if it's a copyright violation because it lacks attribution (also bad). It could be the book cover of Fred Schwarz' 1953 book, Communism — A Disease, but that's just my guess. Better to delete unless it can be attributed, I think. However, low-resolution book covers would probably be considered fair use (not a copyright violation). @CowHouse Bongolian (talk) 05:42, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for that. I'll just ping @Onacompass so they know why it got deleted. CowHouse (talk) 05:51, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
