That narcolepsy thing? That was delicately handled. That's an important page to this chaotic crew! Good job. MarmotHead (talk) 16:17, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll try and keep it up. Hertzy (talk) 17:06, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
For the record, not all pages require that kind of delicacy. You just started out more bravely than I! MarmotHead (talk) 17:12, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
I figured as much, but it was kind of a no-brainer to tread carefully when introducing a case of vaccines causing neurological damage in children as my first edit. Hertzy (talk) 17:29, 7 May 2014 (UTC)


Get blind on it, baby - David Gerard (talk) 12:55, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Jack Ruby source[edit]

You said that you wanted a source; well, none are allowed on this wiki, so...

The source is: Haaretz, David B. Green, January 3, 2013— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

You mean the article that states the last Ruby said on the matter was that there was no conspiracy, or some other Haaretz article by Mr. Green on the same day? --Hertzy (talk) 13:32, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing plagiarism to attention![edit]

Thanks! Christopher (talk) 17:21, 1 January 2018 (UTC)


Whoops. I never knew the attempt in October was posted. I thought it was sandboxed.

As for the new one posted today, the Wikipedia article was indeed a basis, but I revised it extensively. Different language and editing in almost each paragraph, whole sections removed, etc. Any way to retrieve the content I did today? I spent a good amount of time doing it.— Unsigned, by: Hochichi667 / talk / contribs

On talk pages, please sign your comments using four tildes (~~~~) or by clicking on the sign button: SigButt.png on the toolbar above the edit panel. You can also indent successive talk page comments using one more colon (:) for each line. Thank you.
@Hochichi667: For content to not be considered copied, there should be no way for someone who didn't know all of this had happened to conclude that one article was based on another. The "early life" section is a dead giveaway (we don't usually have them, plus the first sentences are identical).
I would advise reading RW:ARTICLE and RW:MOS, and basing your article on information from a number of different sources, not just WP. Christopher (talk) 18:41, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

@Christopher Thanks, but participating seems hardly worth the trouble. Using it as a basis, it getting immediately yanked for plagiarism when I wrote half of the Strieber article at WP myself - good grief.--Hochichi667 (talk) 14:57, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
