That's a funny start, Vossy. Well done. But how about keeping "face" open for something of value?--Aschlafly 22:57, 9 March 2007 (EST)

Hi Aschlafly. Thanks. I was trying to think of something. Any ideas where I can get started? Vossy 23:02, 9 March 2007 (EST)

Cult

Hi Vossy. I see you have recently edited the Scientology article to produce that Scientology is not a religion, but a cult. I realize there could be some expanded versions of the article that would clarify why it might be called a religion, or be called a cult. But such expansions would necessarily go into a fair bit of detail.

If the article is to be short and conservative, I would propose to keep the article as simple as possible. I don't believe it is conservative to call that organization a 'cult' because a preponderance of scholars have written various papers and said it fulfills "religion". That is, there is good evidence by recognized authority that it is a religion. Whereas, to call it a "cult" might be possible, but to be conservative, would require both refutation of the scholarly opinion that has adjucated that it is a religion and in addition, would need to provide some foundation for calling it a "cult". The USA government adjucated (after a GREAT deal of investigation) that it exists for charitable purposes only and is therefore tax exempt. Germany likewise, recognizes it as a religion, though not a state supported religion. Could we talk about the issue, please ? Terryeo 01:06, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

I've replied to your post on my user page, User_talk:Terryeo#Scientology_Cult. I hope that is direct and helpful. Terryeo 17:42, 21 March 2007 (EDT)

Gingrich Picture

Is there some reason you have removed it? Inquiring minds want to know..... --~ TerryK Talk2Me! 03:32, 24 March 2007 (EDT)

Sorry, TK. I was just following up on the vandalisms by BORF, as detailed in the talk page for Conservapedia on Wikipedia. It looks like someone got to fixing the image before I did though anyhow, as the image was already gone. I'll go search for another. Vossy 03:44, 24 March 2007 (EDT)
  • Thanks, Vossy...see my page for explanations more detailed. Thanks for helping out! --~ TerryK Talk2Me! 04:12, 24 March 2007 (EDT)
  • I unlocked that other page, so you could install the picture. Thanks! --~ TerryK MyTalk 08:34, 24 March 2007 (EDT)
Vossy, I'm inclined to block your account permanently for either intentional vandalism or very low quality edits. Switzerland is known for blond women and ABBA???? Explain, and explain quickly, please.--Aschlafly 13:21, 24 March 2007 (EDT)
Uhh. Wow. That wasn't me. Take a look at the edit history. I think you'll find that I was responsible for neither of those. Vossy speak 15:55, 24 March 2007 (EDT)
  • [[1]] Andrew, that was Gishel. I blocked him. --~ TerryK MyTalk 16:21, 24 March 2007 (EDT)
Thanks for clearing my name TK. Vossyspeak 19:18, 20 April 2007 (EDT)

Images

Nice elephant pic, where'd you get it? --Ed Poor 18:18, 11 April 2007 (EDT)

Some stock photo site. Trying to get images for the animals... =D Vossyspeak 18:19, 11 April 2007 (EDT)
I'd love to see a link for each uploaded photo. --Ed Poor 18:29, 11 April 2007 (EDT)
Okay. I'll try to get those in there. Vossyspeak 18:33, 11 April 2007 (EDT)

References for Sodium Pentathol

I'd like you to add your sources for the information you present in the article on Sodium Pentathol. I think this is very important in any article that touches on medical topics. Also, I'd like you to rewrite it in a way that sounds less as if you are speaking from personal experience. I don't want to rewrite that section for style or tone because I don't want to imply that I'm taking any responsibility for the accuracy of the information. Dpbsmith 19:27, 14 April 2007 (EDT)

I'll find references for some of the statements and try to get it sounding a little more professional. Thanks for the move by the way. Vossyspeak 19:48, 14 April 2007 (EDT)

content-free articles?

Hey, I was just looking at thin and balloon, and all they say is to add something. If they are not started, why not leave them unstarted? That way, if they are linked from somewhere, they'll be red links (and also be on the wanted pages list), so someone will know to go build them. Not sure what the point is of creating an article with no information at all, not even a simple definition, is. I notice that I accidentally seem to have found the only two places you did this... so no big deal, I guess. Human 14:19, 18 April 2007 (EDT)

I accidentally started those articles and I don't have privileges to delete anything. Vossyspeak 19:18, 20 April 2007 (EDT)
No problem, I don't have priveleges to whine about it, either ;) It just struck me as odd... how do you accidentally start an article, by the way? Human 20:43, 20 April 2007 (EDT)

HUFU?

What the heck was that all about? Jacobin 17:20, 18 April 2007 (EDT)

See my explanation on the Hufu talk page. Vossyspeak 17:23, 18 April 2007 (EDT)

HUFU is what as known in some cultures as "a joke," "satire" or "a prank." Some people call this "humor." Just because it's on the Google, that don't make it true.. Jacobin 17:27, 18 April 2007 (EDT)

I suppose not so important anyhow. I thought it would be a good example of how extreme the vegetarians are in their meat alternatives. But, now that I look around, I see that we don't even have an article on tofu yet. Vossyspeak 17:29, 18 April 2007 (EDT)
