I find thee apt;

And duller shouldst thou be than the fat weed

That rots itself in ease on Lethe wharf,

Wouldst thou not stir in this. Now, Hamlet, hear.

`Tis given out that, sleeping in my orchard,

A serpent stung me. So the whole ear of Denmark

Is by a forged process of my death

Rankly abus'd. But know, thou noble youth,

The serpent that did sting thy father's life

Now wears his crown.


You 'gave out' that you explained the references in Science fiction. But I would not have taken the trouble to ask you for the references, if they were there - and adequately explained. Stop wasting everyone's time. --Ed Poor Talk 13:13, 2 December 2008 (EST)

The table was deliberate, if you don't know how to reformat it you don't have the experience to waste my time on my talk page. Harsh, but necessary. As for references, they are a start. Yes, I could blitz the section with a thousand-and-one seperate referances, but I believe that to be a lazy way to teach. I give a reference and if that isn't enough then it is up to you to do the homework and research more. You don't like that, tough, complain to Socrates.--Ieuan 19:13, 2 December 2008 (EST)

== Copying ==

NOTE: Conservapedia does not permit copying articles from Wikipedia or other sites which are mirrors of or based on Wikipedia articles, except in the case that you are the author of the Wikipedia article, and you are copying it as you wrote it, that is, without alterations by other editors. If you do copy your own article, then you must place a notice on the article's talk page that you are the original author of the Wikipedia article. Template "{{Copied from}}" can be used for this.

==Copying again==

It would appear as if The Thrawn Trilogy has been copied from here. I am assuming the other Star Wars articles are also copied. We cannot simply copy/paste from sites with a GNU license. Unless you are willing to do a significant rewrite on these pages, they will have to be deleted. I would also strongly advise you to remove the formatting on this talk page, as it makes it impossible to read - I have changed the background from navy to white in the meantime. Thank you. --KotomiTnandeyanen? 08:35, 11 February 2009 (EST)

Actually, all the pages were in the middle of a rewrite, all be it slowly given my other committments. If you have a problem with a page maybe you should consider rewriting and contributing to the work rather than deleting it. Oh, and by the way, about a third of the pages had been rewritten to original works, if you could restore all those pages please, I would apporeciate it.--Ieuan 14:09, 18 February 2009 (EST)

:You seem to miss the point. Other editors are not responsible for rewriting pages which have been copied from other wikis by a single renegade editor. I saw how many articles JessicaT was forced to delete; I daresay she had not the time to research and rewrite the 40+ articles which had been plagarised. The only responsible option available is deletion. 'About a third'? It should be 'about 100%'! That still leaves 2/3 pages copied from other wikis, an amount which is totally unacceptable.

::I have restored them under uder:Ieuan for you to work on. However, they will not be moved to mainspace until we are satisfied they are original articles. In other words, these are only to act as guidelines. --KotomiTnandeyanen? 01:09, 19 February 2009 (EST)
