List of cults[edit]

In List of groups referred to as cults, one of the restrictions excludes, "fancult of popular culture". "Rae Chorze-Fwaz/Rama" appears to be such a fancult, and so I have removed it. If you'd like to make a case that it isn't then we'd all listen. talk:List of groups referred to as cults. Cheers, -Will Beback 08:37, 24 October 2006 (UTC)[reply]

On furhter reflection, it doesn't quite seem like a fancult. I've re-instated the entry. Cheers, -Will Beback 08:41, 24 October 2006 (UTC)[reply]
I'm glad you have added it back in. Although Rama wrote a couple of books, and certainly his students might be described as fans of his books, the primary contact between Rama and his students was through his (sometimes controversial) spiritual teachings--not his books or other materials. A fan of JK Rowling, for example, might create a fancult around Rowling--but Rowling is primarily an author who might occasionally give a talk about her books. Rama, by contrast, was primarily a spiritual teacher (albeit controversial at times) who from time to time wrote books and composed music to support his spiritual teaching. The relationship between Rama and his students was similar to that between, say, Sai Baba and his students--and not at all like the relationship that might exist between a JK Rowling or a Stephen King and their fans. --Dash77 09:12, 24 October 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, as you've noted, my edits to H-1B visa and my concerns about its neutrality are from nearly 10 years ago. I believe my concerns were fairly narrow in scope and regarded certain specifics of immigration conditions from 10 years ago that may or may not still be relevant 10 years later. I noticed that you've made a fair number of recent edits to the H-1B visa page and its talk page--the scope of those comments seems considerably wider than my neutrality dispute was intended to address.

I agree that I shouldn't have reverted your edits and listed him as a Canadian under "Nationality".

Your edit to the Rape article[edit]

Your source was terrible. I am admitting my total lack of neutrality on this topic, but using a popular science article that was taken from another publication, dependent on blog posts, and referencing dead links does not make even a bad reference. I am a nice person and I am not leaving a message here on your talk page to beat you up, you look like a great editor who adds good content. You have to realize what a contentious article you edited-it has hundreds of page watchers, who obviously were all sleeping when you made your contribution. So keep up the good work, but use better referencing. Best Regards,

Barbara (WVS) (talk) 13:21, 1 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]
As you yourself note, I think it is important to approach this from a neutral point of view, as difficult as that may be when the article is about a controversial subject. I noticed that you described the content as "nauseating" in the main edit (revert) that you made to the page itself. The fact that the content is disturbing to you, however, isn't a reason to revert the edit if the content is properly referenced. I will admit that the Popular Science article was not a good reference, because it did indeed depend on blog posts and dead links. However, the Popular Science article does include some references to much more scholarly articles with very similar content. The links may be dead, but it won't take much effort for me to find active links to the scholarly articles with this content. I plan to give this a day or so to give you a chance to respond, and then to restore this content (or very similar content) with better references. I recognize that the content is disturbing and controversial but that is not a reason to avoid it if it can be properly referenced. Moreover, if we are going to remove this content purely because we find the content disturbing, then the previous sentence (which I note you left in) regarding similar physical responses by male survivors should also be deleted for the sake of neutrality. I would question the reference on that one, actually, because a journal on obstetrics and gynecology seems a questionable source for information about male survivors. It is a disturbing subject, but if we are going to discuss it for male survivors, we need to do so for female survivors as well. So in sum--yes, my reference was questionable but there are good references out there for this subject, so it won't be possible to dismiss this purely on the grounds of it being disturbing content.Dash77 (talk) 16:37, 1 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Deletion discussion about Trump Republican[edit]

Hello, Dash77, and welcome to Wikipedia. I edit here too, under the username Eddie891, and I thank you for your contributions.

I wanted to let you know, however, that I've started a discussion about whether an article that you created, Trump Republican, should be deleted, as I am not sure that it is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia in its current form. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Trump Republican.

You might like to note that such discussions usually run for seven days and are not ballot-polls. And, our guide about effectively contributing to such discussions is worth a read. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment here and prepend it with {{Re|Eddie891}}. And, don't forget to sign your reply with ~~~~ . Thanks!

King County[edit]

King County is a disambiguation page, because there is also a King County, Texas and a King County, New South Wales. This is the standard for all US counties, because merely being a bit more populous does not make one county more significant than another. Case in point — Wayne County, Michigan has almost triple the population of every other Wayne County nationwide (1,750,000 versus about 650,000 for the other fifteen put together), but the disambiguation page is located at Wayne County. In general, it's important to remove links from disambiguation pages, because the disambiguation page is almost never the place that the reader wants to end up. Nyttend (talk) 20:51, 20 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

My point is that right now it is not a disambiguation page--it redirects to King County, Washington. It is OK for you to think that it should be a disambiguation page, but in that case there is an appropriate channel for you to open such a discussion. You would open a requested move discussion using the procedures described in WP:RM. You may have a valid point but you aren't approaching this discussion in the appropriate way. A discussion is needed because current practice for US counties isn't consistent on Wikipedia. Yes, Wayne County is handled in the way you describe above. OTOH Cook County redirects to Cook County, Illinois as the primary topic with the other less populous Cook Counties appearing on the disambiguation. Again--you may very well have a valid point but you aren't going about it using the right channels. Dash77 (talk) 21:19, 20 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

  • Support It appears the mechanism you are using for deletion, namely proposed deletion, is normally used only when the deletion is not expected to be controversial. I do not expect to raise any controversy. To give some context, I originally created this disambiguation page much earlier in my Wikipedia journey to disambiguate the group associated with American guru Frederick Lenz from more common uses of California Raisins. As California Raisins was never an especially notable name for the Lenz group, and the Wikipedia article to which it pointed had already been deleted, the reference to Lenz was properly removed from this disambiguation page by another editor a few years back. At this point only two entries remain so the entire disambiguation page can be deleted WP:ONEOTHER as proposed. Dash77 (talk) 20:09, 2 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
