Long Tack Sam
Long Tack Sam (1884–1961) was a Chinese-born American magician, acrobat, and vaudeville performer. Little is known about his early years, although he is known to have joined a group of acrobats around 1900 called the Tian-Kwai, with whom he toured the world. Several years later, amid unrest in China, he brought his troupe of entertainers to the United States, where he performed extensively for several decades. This colour lithograph poster featuring Long was printed in Hamburg, Germany, in 1919. It illustrates his conscious use of luxurious embroidered costumes and elaborate scenery to enhance his mystique and capitalize on Western notions of "the mysterious Orient".Poster credit: Studio of Adolph Friedlander; restored by Adam Cuerden

Hosting link to blacklisted website[edit]

Why are you still providing a blacklisted link on your userpage? (w-hale.to) -- Brangifer (talk) 17:29, 1 February 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Also, I noticed that you link to "Deadly Immunity", Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.'s antivaccine piece published on Salon.com. Salon has retracted that article and deleted it from its website, in response to increasing appreciation of the flawed and (in some cases) outright fraudulent science underlying its claims ([1]) I'm letting you know in case you want to update your userpage to reflect the retraction of the article.

Better source request for File:Newfreedomcommission.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Newfreedomcommission.gif. You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:21, 5 May 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Craft International[edit]

Howdy. i just wanted to call your attention to Craft International. I've nominated it for deletion, but more importantly, I've removed the claim you entered regarding the conspiracy theory surrounding their supposed presence at the Marathon bombings. I assume you weren't aware of this being a conspiratorial point of view, and perhaps were unaware of the Washington Times community page being a blog anyone can sign up for, but I just wanted to give you the heads up about the deletion and removal. Thargor Orlando (talk) 23:59, 22 April 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Howdy? Are you not aware of the fact that the FBI was all over suspect one for years and years, and Russian intelligence sought cooperation with the FBI both before and after suspect one's travels to strife torn nether regions of the former USSR? Are you aware that analysis of terrorism by Mother Jones[2] and the NY Times[3] has demonstrated FBI complicity in 80% or more of terror plots that have been carried out in recent years? The salient issue here is the degree of notability that should be applied to the mercenaries dressed in Craft uniforms, well corroborated pictures of which have now saturated virtually all areas of the media,[4] at least beyond the walled garden of the tightly controlled mainstream press. The Washington Times would have pulled these pictures instantly if there was any hint of the type of photoshopping allegations that have plagued attempts to legitimize the citizenship of current occupant in the White House.[5] These photos are everywhere, and there are no credible sources that back up your mistaken assertion that the suspicious gang of Craft clad mercenaries might not meet the Wiki's notability standards. To quote Jon Rappoport, "You look at photos of men standing near the Marathon finish line, the men in identical uniforms, who have variously been described as Navy Seals, Coast Guard, and Craft International security personnel. What were they doing there? Running a drill? Watching suspects or patsies or bomb-planters? What was going on?"[6] These issues 'trending' throughout cyberspace have reached a crescendo against the backdrop of mounting blowback against US drone strikes and military encroachment across the Middle East and Africa, and yet you audaciously hope to whitewash the serious questions about these photographs with tendentious terminology, just because the FBI emphatically pronounces that photographs of any other suspects will not be deemed credible? ""The photos and videos are posted for the public and media to use, review, and publicize. For clarity, these images should be the only ones and I emphasize the only ones the public should view to assist us," DesLauriers said. "Other photos should not be deemed credible and they unnecessarily divert the public's attention in the wrong direction and create undue work for vital law enforcement resources.""[7] Well, thanks for your opinion, Thargor. Peace out. Ombudsman (talk) 06:32, 24 April 2013 (UTC)[reply]

The Wikipedia Library now offering accounts from Cochrane Collaboration (sign up!)[edit]

Cochrane Collaboration is an independent medical nonprofit organization consisting of over 28,000 volunteers in more than 100 countries. The collaboration was formed to organize medical scholarship in a systematic way in the interests of evidence-based research: the group conducts systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials of health-care interventions, which it then publishes in the Cochrane Library.

Cochrane has generously agreed to give free, full-access accounts to 100 medical editors. Individual access would otherwise cost between $300 and $800 per account. Thank you Cochrane!

If you are stil active as a medical editor, come and sign up :)

Attempts to whitewash such content is not allowed and can be seen as a violation of NPOV and as forbidden advocacy of fringe ideas not supported by scientific evidence and RS. -- Valjean (talk) 01:15, 21 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]

To put it mildly, your wholesale hogwashing of the Plague of Corruption article goes beyond the pale. To add insult to the injury you've inflicted upon the article, the above indicates you have little in the way of constructive inclinations in the area of collaborative editing, the basis upon which many of us early, constructive contributors based our decisions to lend efforts. Rather, you have taken an overtly aggressive, uncooperative stance from the get go. This type of harassment is not only unjustified, it is undignified, and reflects poorly not only upon yourself, but upon the Wiki as a whole. If you would, please, get off your pedestal for a moment and consider that not only have I taken about a decade off as a 'breather', but you have come along, all high and mighty, and renewed the sort of harassment that has exemplified the descent of the Wiki into an acutely biased, unmitigated factory of dominant narrative tripe. Now that you have poisoned the well with your own op-ed insinuations, innuendo, and character assassination pejoratives as a substitute for my good faith article submission, you might want to consider where the high road might take you from here. May I suggest that you recuse yourself from any sort of admin role while others arrive on the article page to make constructive, rather than obstructive, edits, at least until the initial article iterations have progressed beyond the stub phase? Ombudsman 21 May 2020 (UTC)
These kind of personal attacks are unacceptable. I would also like to remind you that you are subject to a permanent topic ban from editing articles related to autism or vaccination, and creating an article about a book written by anti-vaxxers, and which discusses these topics and includes anti-vaccination quotes, is a violation of that ban. AmbivalentUnequivocality (talk) 06:04, 21 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • Ombudsman, I see you were permanently banned from the topics of vaccination and autism in January 2009, and I can't find any record of that ban having been lifted. The article Plague of Corruption is clearly related to both autism and vaccination. The ban was a long time ago, so it might be reasonable to assume you have forgotten it - or it might have been lifted and I have failed to find that. But now that you have been reminded, please either show us where and when the ban was lifted, or keep away from those subject areas. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 08:52, 21 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Ombudsman, I am not an admin. Anyone can place a DS alert when it's warranted. -- Valjean (talk) 14:30, 21 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Discretionary sanctions, pseudoscience and fringe science[edit]

This is a standard message to notify contributors about an administrative ruling in effect. It does not imply that there are any issues with your contributions to date.

You have shown interest in pseudoscience and fringe science. Due to past disruption in this topic area, a more stringent set of rules called discretionary sanctions is in effect. Any administrator may impose sanctions on editors who do not strictly follow Wikipedia's policies, or the page-specific restrictions, when making edits related to the topic.

For additional information, please see the guidance on discretionary sanctions and the Arbitration Committee's decision here. If you have any questions, or any doubts regarding what edits are appropriate, you are welcome to discuss them with me or any other editor.

Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 08:36, 21 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • The subjects of "Plague of Corruption" and Judy Mikovits fall under these discretionary sanctions. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 08:38, 21 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Blocked[edit]

You are now blocked for 72 hours for violating the terms of your topic ban. The ban notification says you are "banned permanently from all pages relating to vaccinations and autism. This ban includes talk pages, templates, categories, and images as well as articles". Earlier today, I told you "The article Plague of Corruption is clearly related to both autism and vaccination. The ban was a long time ago, so it might be reasonable to assume you have forgotten it - or it might have been lifted and I have failed to find that. But now that you have been reminded, please either show us where and when the ban was lifted, or keep away from those subject areas". You have not demonstrated that your ban has been lifted, but have still edited at Talk:Plague of Corruption. If you wish to be unblocked, please either demonstrate where your topic ban was lifted, or make a convincing commitment to adhere to it. If you do neither and carry on editing the same subject once this block expires, you will be blocked indefinitely. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 20:44, 21 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]

>WTH?!? The above recalls previous a previous allegation of 'tedentious editing'. After taking basically a decade's breather from the Wiki, this sort of meddling is at once not surprising, given the devolution of this here Wiki into a pov artistry sinkhole, and yet simultaneously it takes one aback, miffed by the startling abrasiveness and abusiveness that now seems to pass for the current arrogant nature of your evident 'standard operating procedures. Too, it appears someone has edited my comments on the Plague of Corruption' talk page. Rather than just trying to work with me, a passage has just been summarily removed, prior to any chance being allowed for me to tweak the oh, so mild, clearly unintended transgression. Simply replacing the 'artists' with the more politically tolerable 'artistry' ought to suffice, if you can fathom that sort of deference, ever so kindly. In any case, you are talking about a decade old warning that, if memory serves, was only to remain in effect for 3 months. If I'm wrong about the original wording and restrictions, or otherwise, please find and point out the specifics. Lacking such, as I believe you'll find, you ought well rescind this apparently and simply harsh, punitive, juvenile, reactionary over reaction. Even if your interpretation of the 'ancient' finding proves valid, this sort of over-wrought over-reaction is hardly conducive to promotion of the ideals behind 'good faith' assumptions. If y'all wish to continue along the path downward through the sinkhole this Wiki has sunk into, that's on you. In any case, this tempest in a teapot seems simply designed to censor both myself and the invaluable contributions of Judy, Kent and all the rest of us who wish to to pursue conveyance truth and knowledge, despite the sort of heavy handed Orwellianism evident here, on the book article page, and elsewhere... Ombudsman 21 May 2020 (UTC)

>Aha, found the 2009 edit specifying a 'permanent ban', per the link inserted above. The particular 'permanent' status was unbeknownst to me, as is the situation regarding the justification thereof. Obviously, the heavy handed nature of that sanction went way over the top, and beyond that, there is no evidence that any confirmatory, much less reasoned, discourse ensued. The reasoning behind making the ban permanent certainly needs evaluation and negotiation, rather than unilateral, uncompromising, arrogant application. Please, outline any possible avenues you might make available for discussing an appropriate resolution, to the end of demonstrating how such censorious and abusive admin wikilawyering might be properly mitigated... Ombudsman 21 May 2020 (UTC)

  • As you are disputing the current validity of the old topic ban, and it looks like it might not have been logged appropriately, I am replacing it with a new one...

Notice that you are now subject to an arbitration enforcement topic ban[edit]

The following topic ban now applies to you:

You have been indefinitely topic banned from all pages and discussions related to vaccinations and autism, broadly construed.

You have been sanctioned after returning after a long break and immediately resuming your chronic pseudoscientific POV-pushing, in this instance creating this article pushing pseudoscientific claims by a highly controversial former research scientist and an anti-vaccination proponent.

This topic ban is imposed in my capacity as an uninvolved administrator under the authority of the Arbitration Committee's decision at Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Pseudoscience#Final decision and, if applicable, the procedure described at Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Discretionary sanctions. This sanction has been recorded in the log of sanctions. Please read WP:TBAN to understand what a topic ban is. If you do not comply with the topic ban, you may be blocked for an extended period to enforce the ban.

If you wish to appeal the ban, please read the appeals process. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 21:51, 21 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]

  • As I placed your block under the old topic ban, and have now replaced that ban by the new one, I have lifted the block. But you must not edit any pages falling under the new topic ban while it is in force. If you wish to appeal the new topic ban, there is a link to the process in the notification message above.
