Guidelines for my talk page
  • Please, no "ping-pong" conversations: if I leave a message on your talk page, please respond there; I'm watching it. If you start a conversation here, I'll reply here, so please watch this page
  • Sign your posts with four tildes, like this: ~~~~
  • At the beginning of each month I will archive all conversations which are at least 1 month and 1 day from the most recent reply.
  • Please, only one picture of Putin at a time. He scares me in large doses.
  • If you have been blocked by me: please do not create a sock and complain on this page! Instead, email me and we can work it out. (You will need a valid, verified e-mail address for this to work).

The system is supposed to send me an email when my talk page is changed... but I don't think it's working. The regular email is working, though, so if for some reason I don't respond to a notice on my talk page, click here

Is this the end?

Is HelpJazz no more? HenryS 19:44, 1 May 2008 (EDT)

You man of little Faith. --TomB 17:40, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

Welcome back!

You were sorely missed! --TomB 17:39, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

Congratulations on your graduation. I hope you still have an itching to help the project. You have been missed. ;-) Learn together 17:53, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

Hey there, Mr. Jazz. (May I call you Help?) Word to the wise, which you definitely are - tread softly 'til you get the lay of the land. Believe it or not, it's even more treacherous than before. Aziraphale 23:30, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
HelpJazz has friends all over the site and is well respected. If he posts again that can only be positive. Learn together 23:36, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
Thanks for the illustration. Aziraphale 17:18, 5 September 2008 (EDT)


Are you actually back? HenryS 23:33, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

Congratulations on graduating! That's a challenging major also, chemical engineering.--Aschlafly 14:23, 5 September 2008 (EDT)

Thanks all, for the congratulations and welcome (including the one I got in my email). To answer your questions: I'm not "back", inasmuch as I never really "left", I just didn't post for a while. In the immediate future I won't be editing much, because I've been having a lot of carpal tunnel problems, but we'll see what happens. HelpJazz 12:42, 6 September 2008 (EDT)

How can we be sure your account hasn't been hacked, and this isn't just some vandal/imposter posting here? HenryS 22:50, 7 September 2008 (EDT)
Well, the question comes to mind of why someone would want to hack my account. It's not like I have sysop powers or anything. Taking aside motive, let's get existential about this: what if someone hacked my account, and that was the HelpJazz that you knew and now this is the real HelpJazz? Then there'd be no way to prove I was hacked, because the hacker would know every way to prove he was "real", and the real me wouldn't have any way to prove that he wasn't the hacker! Trippy, eh?
Or you could just trust I'm not an imposter and scrutinize the few edits I will be making (which is probably happening already). HelpJazz 13:08, 8 September 2008 (EDT)
You do know that that was just a joke right? Not paranoia as some humourless fools would think. Its good to see you back. 494523500 43294 96-079 94482! HenryS 19:35, 8 September 2008 (EDT)
Yeah, I figured as much :) HelpJazz 19:41, 8 September 2008 (EDT)
From one recent graduate, to another - congratulations! (or as we say omedetou gozaimasu!) --KotomiTHajimemashite! 15:55, 8 September 2008 (EDT)
Thanks HelpJazz 19:41, 8 September 2008 (EDT)

Do you have any interest in writing Danish related content for this encyclopedia? If so, you might want to join the Danish Writers Group (DWG). Let me know if you're interested... HenryS 20:01, 8 September 2008 (EDT)

Um... the only Danishes I know about are the kind with cream cheese filling. Mmmmmmm cream cheese. HelpJazz 12:25, 9 September 2008 (EDT)
I'll take that as a "yes". HenryS 19:00, 9 September 2008 (EDT)
Woot! HelpJazz 19:56, 9 September 2008 (EDT)

Accusation

You have accused me on my talk page of being an "obvious sock". I invite you to retract this, as it is completely false. Bugler 04:16, 10 September 2008 (EDT)

Sorry, I didn't mean you, I meant User:Rp6, who made this reference to something written by user:Roopilots6 HelpJazz 12:55, 10 September 2008 (EDT)

You called?

What is the matter? HenryS 15:58, 10 September 2008 (EDT)

Dearest Bohdan Hank, could you please a look at the block log over the last hour or two and let me know what you think? Thanks, HelpJazz 16:00, 10 September 2008 (EDT)
What is there to think? Looks like a normal block log to me. HenryS 16:02, 10 September 2008 (EDT)
Well, I was talking mostly about DrHubertJNugz and SamuelHTD. The orchestra were likely going to be trouble as well, though none of them were allowed to make an edit. HelpJazz 16:09, 10 September 2008 (EDT)
I'll take a look at those two users. Don't worry about being blocked. I won't allow it! HenryS 16:19, 10 September 2008 (EDT)
Thanks :) HelpJazz 16:20, 10 September 2008 (EDT)
DrHubertJNugz was probably a sockpuppet. HenryS 16:27, 10 September 2008 (EDT)

Vandals, trolls and socks

Since you think I block the undeserving, perhaps you would like to consider what to to with the two most recent signings, the brothers Nick and Mark. Coincidence, non? Bugler 16:33, 10 September 2008 (EDT)

Very likely vandals. Of course, they could also turn out to be two of the best editors we've ever had, so there's a risk vs. reward to think about.
I don't want to give away my whole strategy, lest a future vandal reads but I can tell you this: I like to let them make an edit or two before I block users. 98% of vandals reveal themselves within the first 10 edits (90% within the first 2 edits). Or if you want, you could ask them directly, but they will probably just tell you they are related or something. HelpJazz 16:38, 10 September 2008 (EDT)
Fair enough, but getting them quick (ie even before an edit) does, I think, help to discourage the others. It would seem you distrust your own nose almost as much as you do mine... Bugler 16:40, 10 September 2008 (EDT)
Possibly your approach may be the more judicious one here, but time will tell. Bugler 16:53, 10 September 2008 (EDT)
Having been blocked without cause before, I know that you will discourage more innocents by being too vigilant than you scare away vandals. Plus, if you wait until they have actually done something banworthy, then you don't have to worry about the email crying "but I haven't done anything!" (Which I have gotten). I still feel bad about some guy who had Mudkipz in his name (or however you spell it), and I blocked him before he made any edits. He sent me an e-mail saying that his son came up with the name, but when I unblocked him and apologized, he never came back. HelpJazz 19:46, 10 September 2008 (EDT)

Sex Ed

Does teaching children that boys have a penis and girls have a vagina really constitute sex education? If not then you may want to rethink your sourcing on the Liberal Myths article. I would have thought real sex ed involved teaching what to do with those organs, which is not taught in kindergartens (we - as in almost all recently schooled Australians - have been there). NormanS 16:41, 10 September 2008 (EDT)

Unfortunately, the determination of how early to teach kids different levels of sex education isn't a "yes" or "no" answer. If you can find something better, please be my guest to put it into the article. I don't particularly like the one I found, but it was good enough for the time. Also, something like this belongs on the talk page of the article in question, so that people can follow it easier. HelpJazz 19:51, 10 September 2008 (EDT)

Sock

Are you under the impression that User:Bugler is a sockpuppet? HenryS 19:42, 10 September 2008 (EDT)

No sir. HelpJazz 19:46, 10 September 2008 (EDT)
A parodist? HenryS 19:53, 10 September 2008 (EDT)
I find it extremely difficult to say with certainty if someone believes what they say or are pretending to believe what they say. I can say that Bugler is very forceful in his convictions. You've known him longer than I have though. HelpJazz 20:00, 10 September 2008 (EDT)
Oh, I think he is a parodist. HenryS 20:02, 10 September 2008 (EDT)

Hi, I am sorry to interject if this is a private conversation (as private as can be on a wiki!) but I would like to state something as I have been following this discussion. I have watched this site for awhile before creating an account and I find Bugler quick to block, impossible to reason with and the sort of person to drive people away from this site. I don't know if he is a parodist but I think its irrelevant. I have seen him block for a month over very minor details that should only earn a warning. I have only had to deal with him once and I felt I was to be blocked for simply asking a question of him. He got quite aggresive with me for merely making a suggestion. I expect he will block me for this comment but I wanted to add my two cents as a concerned editor. Thanks guys. ClarkeD 20:11, 10 September 2008 (EDT)

Removal of worshipping environmentalists link

Hi - just curious as to why you removed my addition of the link to the photograph of "worshipping" environmentalists. That photo is even linked to from the main page right now, so why not put it in the article? --DRamon 22:53, 15 September 2008 (EDT)

Because it's not encyclopedic, and it's not a valid reference. It's on the main page as news. HelpJazz 22:57, 15 September 2008 (EDT)
Ok, makes sense - you're right: news!=encyclopedia. Thanks, --DRamon 23:02, 15 September 2008 (EDT)

Al Franken

Thank you very much for your help on the Al Franken page.... However, I don't see myself getting stuck in that mess. I have looked through the history, and it seems anyone who doesn't toe the line gets banned pretty quickly. However, I would ask that you also check out the Lies and the Lying Liars who tell them page. Thank you again for all your help. NateE Let Us Communicate 14:41, 16 September 2008 (EDT)

Sure I'll take a look at it. HelpJazz 14:46, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
Learntogether just readded the bit about rudeness, vulgarity and whatnot... I really don't think anything is going to change, it's just sad that we can't provide insight and information without partisan mud slinging. Anyway, thanks for trying. NateE Let Us Communicate 13:30, 17 September 2008 (EDT)
Relax Nate. Anyone listening to Al Franken is aware of his style and it's not exactly Bill Cosby. He's had a history of being rude and vulgar and so, shockingly, we're actually going to call it rude and vulgar. Most of the changes desired were allowed to stick (which you don't acknowledge), so what are you complaining about? You didn't get every single word that you wanted? You're coming across as a whiner. Learn together 13:45, 17 September 2008 (EDT)
Well, he is pretty rude and vulgar. HelpJazz 13:55, 17 September 2008 (EDT)
A, I don't see how this conversation is in anyway pertinent to you, and B, I don't have a problem with you saying that you find him rude and vulgar, that's a perfectly acceptable opinion to take. However, when you're writing something as a fact, you need to be aware of legal definitions and the possiblity of libel. NateE Let Us Communicate 13:33, 18 September 2008 (EDT)
Nate, the name you mentioned above is mine. What you're really saying is, "How dare you comment while I'm talking behind your back." And it would really help if you would accept that we can call a spade a spade. You may feel that there's no such thing as rude behavior, but that won't fly here. And somehow I don't think Andy is worried about being sued by Al Franken because he's really not rude. It would be interesting to see him defend that in court and, as a master of drumming up free publicity for himself through controversies, Franken would hardly want to give that same standing to us -- although I'm sure Andy would welcome it. ;-) Learn together 15:18, 18 September 2008 (EDT)
