Let's make sure we also move the info to the Noise Ordinance page, as the featured pg is a temporary thing.<br> - * Ahh, yes, I'll go ahead and copy over the latest edit as well.<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-01-27 17:44:07'' [[nbsp]] Flying jets? Best daycare ever! --["Users/EdWins"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-01-27 20:09:01'' [[nbsp]] Tom, I figure you've got a better handle on the license status of a photo like the one you mention and if it is available for use on the wiki given that we use a Creative Commons license and putting it up here without notation about its copyright. On the other hand you could put up notation if it is available for reuse, but not clear to release to CC, or get the owner's permission. Great editing by the way. --["Users/JasonAller"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-01-28 13:33:03'' [[nbsp]] We've had a sudden influx of drama in 2010, but we've also suddenly gotten some really good editors who focus on the content and help everybody evenly (and yes, I know you've been around a long time, but you're much more active lately). Thanks for getting more active. In this man's opinion, you're a great editor. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-01-28 13:43:36'' [[nbsp]] Agreed. Thanks! --["Users/EdWins"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-01-29 01:13:55'' [[nbsp]] okay, but keep in mind that even you sorta think Phillip didn't need to remove it, it has always been in very poor form to touch comments that were not made by you. This is what I take issue with the content has absolutely nothing to do with his faux paus. --["Users/StevenDaubert"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-01-29 15:05:38'' [[nbsp]] Tazzina Bistro has its own Woodland Wiki page, separate from the davis wiki page. --["Users/AmLin"]<br> - * I probably should have checked for that! In that case, nevermind. --["Users/TomGarberson"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-01-30 17:24:30'' [[nbsp]] That web&lt;-&gt;IRC gateway is hosted on my server. I'll take a look into it (if you know of a better IRC client that runs on the web, let me know!). The channel is up and populated with bursts of activity several times a day these days. Thanks for the heads up about the problem. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-01-31 20:43:50'' [[nbsp]] Sarah and I tried the new Dominoes pizza and bread bowls out here in the frozen lands of the East (last winter, as we're moving soon!). Their bread bowls aren't bad, and are just about big enough for two. The pizza is vastly improved, but not good enough to order again. I wouldn't voice strongly against it in a group order, however. If you liked the new crust, the bread bowls are worth a shot if you're ordering from there. From your review, I don't think I'll try the wings. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - * Thanks for the info! We might just have to check out the bread bowl next time we're short on ideas. And I agree with you on the pizza. It's perfectly decent, just not something I'd really go out of my way to get. I'll probably continue going with Papa Murphy's for cheap, nearby pizza. The crust doesn't turn out quite as nice, but the flavors are better, it's not nearly as buttery, and the toppings are nice and fresh.<br> - * I too like the bread bowls but would like to leave a disclaimer that there is way too much bread and not as much pasta and sometimes the bread gets really hard to eat (so sometimes not as much food as you think if you start getting sick of the bread). Unlike the pizza, you will get a lot less of the crispy surface area with the bread bowl. Papa Murphy's is awesome and can be just as cheap with coupons. --["Users/hankim"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-01-31 22:11:38'' [[nbsp]] The IRC client in Opera is very nice. I mostly use irssi, but I think Opera is my favorite graphical IRC client. --["Users/NickSchmalenberger"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-01-31 22:27:59'' [[nbsp]] Have you tried Lamppost Pizza? It was one of my favorite places: big, fresh toppings. The calzone used to be *killer!* I know prices went up sometime after 2007 or 2008, but it's really one of the places I miss most. I ordered the buffalo wings a few times and I think I generally liked them. --["Users/EdWins"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-02-01 10:09:51'' [[nbsp]] Do you know how to get to the [http://cmr.yolocounty.org/violationtext/K001.htm links for the violation text]?

I think my lack of experience with wiki has caused some tension. Any changes made from here forward will have detailed explanations for the change. I do not want to interfere with the right of others to edit wiki, and I understand that this is a public forum and not a company brochure. --["Users/chernandez"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-02-21 11:15:07'' [[nbsp]] Hey now, it takes two to conflict during editing! Actually... well, to be honest, I've had tabs open during complex edits and managed to conflict with ''myself'' while editing. But the point remains: any edit conflict due to simultaneous edits can usually be solved by just backing away for a bit. Alas, in this case, I had a ton of stuff in mid-transit and thought that it would cause '''much''' more chaos and gnashing of teeth if I left it out for any significant amount of time. When I saw what was happening, it seemed there was no good way out other than to move quick, get it done and back away fast. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-02-22 15:18:31'' [[nbsp]] Hahahaha! I think so! Maybe we need a Nasal Questions page, too. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-02-22 15:39:26'' [[nbsp]] :-) --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-02-23 00:10:27'' [[nbsp]] "This is what fundamentalist Christians actually believe." --["Users/BrentLaabs"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-02-23 22:15:11'' [[nbsp]] Thanks. And yes, I am jealous that you have your taxes done already. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-02-24 13:07:05'' [[nbsp]] I know we keep track of how people were referred to the practice, I am trying to find out how to find the total number. But I can say roughly half of all new patients I see found us on the wiki. I found that info, if you want to know more email me: dagonjones at gmail dot com. --["Users/DagonJones"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-02-28 19:51:23'' [[nbsp]] Was there a reason that you orphaned the ["Boardwalk Apartments/Pre-2009 Reviews"] page? Is it a problem for those comments to be archived? --["Users/JasonAller"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-05 10:02:00'' [[nbsp]] Every time I look at the RealComputers web page it just looks so low rent. It blows my mind that someone who holds himself out as a tech professional would keep tinkering with the wiki that way - it just looks awful, like a 14 year old's myspace page about his band. --["Users/rfrazier"]<br> - * That's about the sum of it. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-05 10:24:52'' [[nbsp]] A more accurate statement of my belief is that certain editors routinely treat business owners on the wiki with suspicion and hostility. --["Users/DonShor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-05 14:14:17'' [[nbsp]] According to [wiki:@:"ucdaction" @ucdaction], there was a protest today too? So maybe it's still current? --["Users/BrentLaabs"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-05 16:03:22'' [[nbsp]] Congratulations!! --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-05 17:40:25'' [[nbsp]] Thanks. Whats 'Closed italicization'? --["Users/BruceHansen"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-05 19:06:08'' [[nbsp]] I saw what you did, and in doing so I figured out seeing edit history steps.--["Users/BruceHansen"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-06 23:07:30'' [[nbsp]] Ha! --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-07 16:35:06'' [[nbsp]] No worries man. I'm going to try to stay away from all the protest-related pages, because the way JR is setting up her arguments is making my head explode. --["Users/EdWins"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-07 17:59:03'' [[nbsp]] Thank you for attempting to keep the protest page as balanced as possible. I sort of gave up trying to keep up with it all. --["Users/hankim"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-07 20:10:32'' [[nbsp]] I have been thinking of just putting all my views on the subject on my user-page then directing people to it whenever I get started with someone so I will not keep stopping whatever I am doing to keep it going:<br> - <br> - http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/duty_calls.png --["Users/hankim"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-07 20:25:17'' [[nbsp]] Patience is a tool, as is measured inaction. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-07 21:56:00'' [[nbsp]] Nicely presented, with respect -- but strong criticism -- for those you disagree with. No hate here. I just choose to sit out emotionally driven debates on the wiki (the philosophical ones, not the practical ones) for one of the reasons you give: no actual goal is usually attained. Although you presented things so well I have an urge to copy the format and rewrite it into a companion "Common pitfalls for well intentioned protests" entry to help people who are seeking to use a protest to accomplish a goal. Later. When things are calm. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-07 22:19:58'' [[nbsp]] ;-) --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-07 22:31:19'' [[nbsp]] Oh, it's clearly generic trolling. There have been several times that I just deleted his edits/comments off the bat right when he left them. I went back to edit that page - I had thought it was clear that my response was more of a general wiki philosophy, not directed as something '''you''' should do. But I went back to edit it just in case for anyone else who hadn't been following along. Cheers. --["Users/EdWins"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-07 22:37:54'' [[nbsp]] stick around long enough and you'll be in the top 10 twice, like me &lt;.&lt; Last updated 2/2009, oh my. Thankfully I've lost my place by now hopefully. --["Users/EdWins"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-07 22:47:06'' [[nbsp]] No need to apologize. Standing by something you do not know much about is usually a bad idea. --["Users/hankim"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-08 09:16:55'' [[nbsp]] Congrats on being admitted to the Bar! --["Users/JoePomidor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-08 10:07:29'' [[nbsp]] Yeah, but it was too one-sided. I was going to add a tidbit against WL too then just removed it all. I've attempted to scold William in the past too, he gets way too headstrong and revert happy a lot of times, when a teeeeeny bit of compromising can help. I think Jason said it best once, that a lot of people have a Pavlovian response to Brian. It's not just specific to him though, this ties in a bit with what I said about SredniV too, that stubbornness unfortunately tends to trump all once people become wikenemies. However, I was probably among the worst three people and frothed at the mouth and had mini-heart attacks and all that sort of stuff over the inanity of Steve Ostrowski. Hopefully I'm a bit better since then. --["Users/EdWins"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-08 10:21:26'' [[nbsp]] There were probably a couple dozen highly contested pages regarding SO. You'd really have to through his user accounts edit history to see them, and then it'd have to be a single edit by edit look. There were thousands of edits, though there were a few pseudo up-to-date pages summarizing a few points as you found, but even then, it'd be like attempting to unknot the largest ball of yarn the world has ever seen. Blindfolded with no arms. While on fire. --["Users/EdWins"]<br> - * Not just fire. Unpleasant fire. ''Really unpleasant fire''. -jw<br> - * Hahaha! -tg<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-08 14:54:03'' [[nbsp]] I'm not sure if I want to laugh or cry. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-08 14:55:26'' [[nbsp]] Haha yeah, we're all housemates. We've all been hitting up Mermaid's pretty heavily, and wanted to share the joy, make sure they don't go out of business like all their predecessors. --["Users/JoePomidor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-08 15:50:07'' [[nbsp]] Repetition can be helpful.... --["Users/DonShor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-08 15:50:34'' [[nbsp]] Thanks, Tom! --["Users/AaronSamson"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-08 16:31:45'' [[nbsp]] Now, just think if there were *three* people editing like Brian instead. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-08 16:34:20'' [[nbsp]] Thanks for getting the question answered faster than the business owner! --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-09 08:21:24'' [[nbsp]] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CovtFLZQY14 --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-09 10:43:01'' [[nbsp]] Whups. I meant to add a reply and remove the link in two distinct edits, so the comments and edits don't quite line up (my fault!). I removed the user link from your comment in ["Who, What, When, Where, Why, How"] in an effort to keep it there, since the user you are referring to is obvious in the edit links you use. I assume the whole "you can add it back if you want" and wiki 101 is not needed by now. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-09 16:34:13'' [[nbsp]] Actually, that one I undid (well, I left the swanky "subentry link format" because you might not have seen it before), since it subtly changed what you were saying. Although Davis Wiki has such a nicer, almost happy definition for sockpuppetry. Kind of keeping with the whole "don't take it too seriously, because it's just gonna happen again next month" vibe. Also, the Davis Wiki is great for the whole family, bring the ["Trolls" kids]! Live music at 7:35pm on Thursdays, and there is a ["cows" light up bar]! --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-09 23:30:49'' [[nbsp]] A lot of the pages involving the budget cuts and protests have too much wish-wash in my opinion, but I too am slightly afraid to touch them because I am very biased on these issues so they tend to go one-sided. --["Users/hankim"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-09 23:44:17'' [[nbsp]] I feel the same way about parts of the ["UC Davis Budget Cuts"] page. --["Users/hankim"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-10 09:01:05'' [[nbsp]] I'm sorry for your loss. Get well soon. --["Users/JoePomidor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-10 09:02:17'' [[nbsp]] Hopefully you don't share any of the relevant genes. But if you get the urge to write notes on your hand, watch out. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-10 09:11:48'' [[nbsp]] Going rogue, eh? Good luck! --["Users/WilliamLewis"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-10 10:54:36'' [[nbsp]] Nice welcome to the Mermaid's owner! --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-10 11:13:56'' [[nbsp]] Hey, I ''did'' grow up on an island. I spent my childhood playing in mangrove swamps (for kids, '''so''' much more interesting than the beach!) and getting into jellyfish fights with my siblings and the neighborhood kids. I think the description fits. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-10 12:55:17'' [[nbsp]] Haha thanks. I'm a hairs breadth from giving it up as a lost cause, so I figured I'd get one last point in before scrapping it. --["Users/JoePomidor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-10 13:17:25'' [[nbsp]] THanks; I liked the cyclic nature of the comment bar's title. Reminded me of the knight/knave logic puzzles ;-) --["Users/WesHardaker"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-10 15:49:18'' [[nbsp]] Hello fellow IS-alumni (04-05, woOt) -- apparently, the police have told the ARC they don't accept iPods but the ARC keeps sending them to them so ... they put them into the "to-be auctioned" bin when they get them. And the police don't like the ARC because the ARC is "infamous" for telling people they turn everything into the police, and it makes the police look like they steal things when the items aren't there. So ... putting iPods to be auctioned right off the bat isn't stealing. It's a consequence of budget cuts (which is why they stopped taking iPods. Not enough staff to deal with the lost and found system. Though, they still take most everything else. They actually have a list of things they accept. And they will take an iPod off the random person that finds one.)<br> - <br> - Curious. I didn't know the police auctioned lost and found items after 30 days in the system. Or if the item isn't accepted. --["Users/ChristyMarsden"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-11 08:43:45'' [[nbsp]] My iPod wasn't in the auction bin, and the evidence guy says they haven't seen anything from the ARC in a while so I'm still not quite confident of what happens to the fate of lost items. My previous sentiments seemed to blame the police, but now I'm not sure who's at fault here. Either way, I had false hopes that my found iPod would be returned. Ah well. I'm really more bummed about the new headphones that I purchased for it on sale from amazon that were also lost ... haha! --["Users/ChristyMarsden"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-11 09:23:33'' [[nbsp]] Silliness is fun, but asking Bizarro World if Drom's [http://daviswiki.org/Bizarro_World?action=diff&amp;version2=191&amp;version1=190 is getting stuff early] that Bizarro World isn't just seems a bit mean. Did you mistype Drom's when you meant BW? --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-11 09:32:24'' [[nbsp]] Yeah, that whole bit edit kerfluffle was started by the fact that Bizarro got in trouble for selling card packs before their release date and is under some kind of penalty, so it's a bit of a sore spot there. There's a link to the website about the ban, also ["Users/Risky"] is a local Magic judge, and he might know if that whole thing affects all WotC products or just Magic. ||&lt;speech="curmudgeonly"&gt;This is another reason TSR shouldn't have sold out!|| --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-03-11 12:22:01'' [[nbsp]] I copied a lot of info onto the timeline from http://library.ucdavis.edu/dept/specol/archives/timelines-university.php ... if anyone wants to go back and fill in departments/divisions that were established, you're welcome to.

The Earth Box is pretty big, for example. Tomatoes have large root systems, and need to be in mostly full sun. I've looked at the Topsy Turvy and think that the plant would be rootbound by mid-summer, requiring daily watering thereafter, so it would end up being pretty high maintenance. If it dries out, the blossoms on the plant at the time will wither and fail to fruit.

Personally, I don't care (other than if it at the level where it impairs service) for certain jobs. I've known an entire TGI Friday's crew that would light up before a shift to keep things loose and happy. That might be an actual improvement, but I know it makes some people who are ''intensely'' uncomfortable when they have to interact with people in an altered mental state. White collar stuff, where your brain is your primary tool, I'd like it sharp while I'm paying for your services, while others don't care. But many people might simply never patronize an establishment that had even a stoned dishwasher in back, capably plowing through a pile of dishes.<br> - <br> - It's one of those accusations whose ramifications can clearly vary greatly by the perception of the person reading the accusation. That makes it a fairly interesting case, and I'm wondering how many others are similar. Bugs at a restaurant don't bother me (a long term infestation would, but I grew up on an island where you simply batted away the occasional large insect trying to explore your table, and like camping or picnicking where you're simply outnumbered), while others are horrified. An occasional chicken feather on my wings makes me chuckle at the missed pluck and move on, while I've seen people swearing off of meat for the same thing. My point is that the seriousness of an accusation isn't objective.<br> - <br> - (And I'm not sure why I'm posting this to you specifically, other than something you said prompted the line of thought). --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - <br> - That's very true... and it's also a good reason why people want to know about those sorts of things.

I certainly agree that tossing an "honestly" and a bit of info about the repercussions of lying would be help, but again -- that's adding more information about the process. Right now, it is not clear what you have to be able to answer. And knowing what you ''have to be able'' to answer -- while it does, by necessity, happen to tell you ''what you need'' to answer -- is a key part of understanding what the requirements are. Right now, it is not clear what your prerequisites are to get a handgun.

Comcast tends to do things in the wee hours of the morning that cause short outages.

Five nines is pretty hard to do (aka very expensive) and really only common in very core industries like communications (telephone systems, etc).

On a related tangent that doesn't quite apply in this case: Tags are often seen as a panacea, but in my observation, few have performed any benefit to the wiki. People tend to tag and dash, with very little followup. There are a zillion seeds that very very seldom get reviewed, and since Jason left, I don't think anybody is rigorously working through the PhotoRequests. An easy solution that is "prepwork" rather than "creates value" tends to spawn a lot of action doing prepwork without the actual follow through to do what is needed to create value. After all, people can easily tag PhotoRequest... but who is fulfilling those requests ''because of the tag'' rather than because they were at the restaurant/event/place and took a photo for that particular entry? --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-10-12 13:08:51'' [[nbsp]] That's why I replied re: the notice on the talk page and then discussed tags (which are a different topic, but semi-related) here.

Refine it to a year and then move it into the timeline? --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-10-12 14:06:33'' [[nbsp]] A chunk of that was because of the source -- old newspapers. I used similar sources (or sometimes the same newspapers), which is why mine bear the same "existed during". Which is common in genealogy sources as well (because that's what I hit on, looking for businesses or phone numbers). It may be the common form for incomplete records. It still pins it to a year, which at least allows it to be sorted in an order that can, over time, be refined, especially if you can get a second date in there (best case would be a start or end date). How are you finding them to tag with the tag? If you want, I can work them over into a "known dates" rough timeline, which beats an era bucket (especially for cases like buildings or organizations, which may start in an early era and continue to today -- are they historical or current?). --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-10-14 18:16:15'' [[nbsp]] I think your reply on "I Hate Davis" is one of the best I've ever read, haha! --["Users/ChristyMarsden"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-10-15 13:39:56'' [[nbsp]] It's not so much that it's a large comic... more that, as somebody who ran BeOS for awhile, I dislike the characterization of Haiku as "experimental". ;-P --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-10-18 14:31:04'' [[nbsp]] Yeah, duplicating is bad.

That's distinct from the "aesthetic choppers" or chopper-style bikes, which are entirely different. The key thing is that the recent ruling is tied to all bikes modified from stock -- the stripped down "a wrench and gas and she runs" style bike. It requires that they have the various components certified whenever altered. So it changes a fairly fundamental aspect of the whole motorcycle concept. It violates one of the key reasons a section of people use that mode of transportation: the idea that there is something you can tear down with your own tools and build back up, hammering out and welding your own parts if you want to, and then pack the tools in a case and go around the world with it. Loud pipes (along with removing or altering your muffler, straight pipes, etc) are all already illegal. There are already noise regulations (the law, in fact, does not actually change the current noise threshold at all, it just mandates certification and labeling). This is more like outlawing modifying your bicycle without a per-modification inspection -- when there are already requirements for things like brakes and a seat.

At the beginning of 2011 there will be "2010" and "2011" headings. As the year passes, "2010" may disappear, because the "arrived" businesses have matured and left the list.

Sorry for my confusion.<br> - --["Users/RobertTruslow"]<br> - ------<br> - Forgive me if I'm wrong because my math is weak, but, in my understanding, that final 35% gain wouldn't be able to be applied in that manner. I've quoted the following from one of the sources that you provided to see if this is where you got the 35% percent from. I have bolded two sentences to show why I think that the 35% percent would not apply to handheld leaf blowers in this case.<br> - <br> - "Small Nonroad Engines<br> - <br> - We are adopting HC+NOx exhaust emission standards of 10 g/kW-hr for Class I engines starting in the 2012 model year and 8 g/kW-hr for Class II engines starting in the 2011 model year. We expect manufacturers to meet these standards by improving fuel systems, engine combustion and in some cases adding catalysts. These standards are consistent with the requirements recently adopted by the California Air Resources Board (ARB). '''We are not adopting new exhaust emission standards for handheld emissions.'''<br> - <br> - For spark-ignition engines used in marine generators, we are adopting a more stringent Phase 3 CO emission standard of 5 g/kW-hr. This applies equally to all sizes of small SI engines used in marine generators.<br> - <br> - '''We are adopting new evaporative emission standards for both handheld and nonhandheld equipment.''' The new standards include requirements to control fuel tank permeation, fuel line permeation, and diffusion emissions. For nonhandheld engines we also require control of running losses.<br> - <br> - When fully implemented, the new standards will result in a 35 percent reduction in HC+NOx emissions from new engines’ exhaust. The new standards will reduce evaporative emissions by 45 percent." [http://www.epa.gov/otaq/regs/nonroad/marinesi-equipld/420f08013.htm]<br> - <br> - So the way I understand it, somehow the newest HC+NOx standards, to which the 35 percent reduction refers, are only being applied to nonhandheld equipment. What is confusing to me, however, is that the evaporative emissions standards, which do seem to apply to handhelds like leaf blowers, are listed as having a 45 percent reduction. Although my limited knowledge of this subject leads me to speculate that evaporative emissions also has something to do with hydrocarbons, apparently they are treated as separate categories of pollution. Therefore, the 45 percent wouldn't be able to be multiplied to those numbers you mentioned either because the result wouldn't accurately represent a net benefit, being that they are apparently two different kinds of pollution. Please feel free to correct my understanding if you feel I've erred.<br> - <br> - On a side note, thanks for contributing your knowledge on the subject. I was totally unaware of the encouraging advances in leaf-blower emission reductions in recent years until you brought it up. --["Users/ScottMeehleib"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-12-01 09:55:31'' [[nbsp]] Nice call on the Welcome to the Wiki/Business Owners...

It seems weird to say the comments are for "entertainment purposes" when they are clearly for educational purposes. Of course I want to make sure that no one can diagnose or treat any disease based purely on a text conversation.

It's all 1st years... One, for example, James Schlinger has apparently made me infamous on Facebook. About a month ago now, they had an event/study session at LP and there were about 40 in attendance. All decided to bunch together at the far end of the bar by the second doorway. I had to ask them politely for about a half hour to please move since this was causing a fire hazard/safety violation. They refused, so for the next half hour I was a bit more blunt, while still being polite. Still, they remained. Finally, I began to threaten to kick them out if they remained grouped together in that location. They finally began to slowly move. If it had been any other group I would not have tolerated it for as long as I did but the law school has always treated LP well so I gave them quite a bit more leeway. The following evening a 4th year came up to me and told me "You have to see this!"<br> - <br> - I looked at his iPhone facebook app and saw Mr. Schlinger had posted about what a "douche" the owner was. The next comment was about the older bouncer, me, and he commented back that that this was who he meant. It turned into about a 70 comment thread about what a power-hungry/tripping a-hole I was for daring to ask them to move out the way.<br> - <br> - As far as I am concerned, if this is the new batch of Law Students, they might as well stay away from LP for I will not extend them the same courtesy twice. We have never had the kinds of problems this new group has presented... All prior years were extremely well mannered and respectful, even when asked to move for safety reasons. --["Users/Wes-P"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-03-10 10:06:00'' [[nbsp]] "Jerkbag."

I also don't know about past allegations about violations of standards not panning out since I'm new here, but I would think if the USDA is anything like the FDA, the number of inspectors/inspections has dropped drastically in the past couple decades so it wouldn't require a conspiracy or even malicious intent for there to be some blind spots in the system.

If you all (career ediotrs) are more concerned with the primacy of your own words rather than what the truth is, then your "community" isn't representative of the very real world from which the Wiki first sprung...i mean, can we not agree there was a REAL tangible world BEFORE the fledgling<br> - Wiki was born? I honestly feel most people in this "community" are well meaning and quite accomplished and astute in their oxygen-based worlds. But this Wiki as far as this issue ia concerned, is suffering from a lack of humility and common sense. It seems quite a desparate act to defend words from someone who has left the conversation. I find<br> - it further perplexing that not a one of the editors stood behind a business' right to conduct its work without such a Mar, given<br> - its 7 years on the Wiki without any kind of accusation CLoSe to what was made. I could see if we had a<br> - string of SHady comments in regard to the safety of ladies in Village Cabs. Frankly, I dont see why any business would want to be on the Wiki if they get no consideration for the time and<br> - history they have on its erasable and surreal pages. Did any editor check with Davis PD for any complaints against us ? Has anyone checked DUN &amp; Bradstreet for our fiduciary creditworthiness as a business? No. everyone is myopically worried about how the Wiki should handle this or that. I submit to you kind<br> - sir, that Its quite heavy to my business in this ecomomy. This is my only livelihood. Some of<br> - the drivers as well. Please consider that we had 60,000 hours plus of active service ( 24 hours in operation since 2004) and not one insinuation from our lady riders that we gave them any reason to feel unsafe. My wife was a customer for almost 3 years before we even dated. When we dated, we got engaged 3 weeks afterward. We have many many lady regulars. I really think the Wiki and its career editors should exercise more real-world analysis of accusations whether or not the person gives their REAL NAME. A real name van<br> - have just as much a reason or chance to be untrue or incorrect as a pseudonym or ghost writer can. A business should be given<br> - the benefit of the doubt when it comes to such seriously economic matters. After all, the truth will bear itself out, right? 7 years weighed against lesser years of editorial experience on the accuser's part? I am not too sure this is a balanced appraisal of how long a publication should allow sidelong glances and second thoughts to trump the effects of what may have actually gone on...i mean the story was an Afterthought, the writer didnt seem to think it was crucial enough to report in the "real world". Is Village Cabs history on the wiki indicative or suggestive even<br> - of this behavior by any of its drivers? Nothing to even conjecture. One editor with less history, makes a factless (no day, no descriptions only a business name) writes a<br> - shocking story, and then under criticism (much inappropriate criticism) she leaves<br> - the Wiki. We are taking security of customers even more seriously because of it, but we in no way shape or form acknowledge or accept her story as fact, just as a reminder to us that we habe been to naive to think we wouldnt need to go so far as to have cameras to protect ourselves from stories written without any real world followup or clarification. And now an editor says I am<br> - whitewashing this whole thing by removing the reference to the story. No, I am just removing the doubt from our established reputation as a<br> - trustworthy micro cab company. I think 7 years if hard work gives me the right to take that step.<br> - --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-04-22 12:30:01'' [[nbsp]] thanks for those edit tips btw. im usually driving days so not so much time to learn that stuff --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-04-22 12:54:00'' [[nbsp]] ...excuse my series of typos... --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-04-22 17:32:23'' [[nbsp]] Absolutely not a fan of "requiring" off-wiki actions as a prelude to wiki comments. Especially when reporting actions for certain things [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_statistics#United_States are so unevenly taken]. --["Users/EdWins"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-04-24 21:38:35'' [[nbsp]] That ''might'' be better on a different entry, as the core point may be clouded with specifics (on the other hand, it's good there too). It's a VERY good point. Personally, I try to support tact, compassion and a strong voice. That is, express negatives in a manner in which they are not hostile, and be aware that one's actions have consequences for others, so do not speak in a way that __needlessly__ hurts others. After that, speak up and voice your views with as much clarity as possible. Alas, in this particular instance the original story may have met all of those criteria from her perspective (relating a situation in which she saw a victim). --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-04-24 22:04:40'' [[nbsp]] I already replied to your fairness point. I'd say that a good example where the wiki community comes into play is technical issues like account names, as they are not an intrinsic part of Davis. Accusations -- both because of their source and ramifications -- seem to be to be more relevant to the Davis community as a whole than just the subset of the wiki community, and so it is within that larger context that things like fairness should be judged. Or maybe I'm putting too fine a point on it. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-04-25 09:56:53'' [[nbsp]] I know it wasn't your intent, but your comment on VC ends up reading as: 'sweep it under the rug.' 'Something happened, but it got dealt with in some fashion, so in the end the original comment is irrelevant.' If anything, you're advocating, unintentionally, integrating Ashley's comment into the page if there's any mention of security cameras --- because what led to cameras being installed in every cab?<br> - <br> - To set up an awful analogy, it'd be somewhat like if I said your restaurant had a cook that was rumored/heard to/seen spiting into food or not washing hands...so the restaurant installs cameras in the kitchen. That's nice, and then you can go on to tell your patrons that the food is totally hygienic and trustworthy because hey, we even have cameras and do a background check on our chefs. But...what again led to the cameras? The comment/allegation is completely swept under the rug, when in fact it's actually now much more relevant as a point of history.<br> - <br> - X was alleged, so the company changed by doing Y. I honestly think you're overestimating what you're referring to harm that comes out of a mention when put into the proper context on the page (such as the compromise comment and David's followup rebuttal). Having mentioning of X doesn't equate to endorsement of content or admission of guilt to X, and I doubt that many people generally see it that way. Usually, a company/group is lauded for stepping up and doing Y. It's not about Removing all mention of X seems to do it injustice, and it puts a fake spin on Y. It would be an incomplete story with a murky history. I wonder if it'd be worse down the line in a few years (Sigma Chi rumor style? Isn't that the company with the cameras?) to not simply address it up front, in the open and immediately have the rebuttal to squash concerns. --["Users/EdWins"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-04-25 10:03:00'' [[nbsp]] I hate to pick apart tidbits and be a stickler for little things, but just trying to get my point on the "First X, then Y" thing across.<br> - <br> - You had written, "On the matter of safety, David is going to install (already has installed?) video cameras in all of the Village cabs. Are we all more or less in agreement that once that's complete, the safety issue is pretty much resolved? It's hard to imagine a man, knowing he's on film, molesting someone. Thus it seems that the safety concern will be largely resolved once the cameras in place. Sure, it's conceivable there's a serial molester who's going to go way out of his way to continue molesting women... but if that's the case, neither the comment nor the video cameras are going to do much about it. On other words, while horrifying, it's not really within the scope of the safety benefit offered by the comment—it's irrelevant."<br> - <br> - I think that line makes the restaurant analogy fit a bit better. We should remove all posts with concern or alleged unhygienic practices or spitting into food, because....<br> - <br> - "Are we all more or less in agreement that once [camera installation is] complete, the safety issue is pretty much resolved? It's hard to imagine a cook, knowing he's on film, spitting into food. Thus it seems that the safety concern will be largely resolved once the cameras in place. Sure, it's conceivable there's a serial unhygienic jerk who's going to go way out of his way to continue being gross with food... but if that's the case, neither the comment nor the video cameras are going to do much about it. On other words, while horrifying, it's not really within the scope of the safety benefit offered by the comment—it's irrelevant."<br> - <br> - And so the original comment about the cook not washing his hands and spitting into the food is wiped. We can write up about Y on the page, but it seems just wrong to completely delete X from the history, whether it's false or not, --- when X is the entire reason everything changed. Isn't it? --["Users/EdWins"]<br> - Point well taken. From the perspective of examining why something happened, it's certainly relevant. To my mind, though, that's a relatively minor consideration compared to the magnitude of impact from the second point in the proposal. The extent of the assumptions necessary to reach the conclusion that "this isn't the kind of company I want to do business with" frankly horrifies me. That's what differentiates it from an issue of sanitation (which, from what I've heard, happens in ''most'' food establishments): the magnitude of the benefit and the harm. When 99% (or 95%, or whatever you think is reasonable) of the benefit to the community has already been realized once the cameras are installed, there's only very limited continued good emanating from the account. On the flip side, 100% of the harm continues. It's a massively disproportionate effect. And just to be clear, my objection isn't that the business is harmed, but that the business is harmed unjustly because of assumptions necessary to get to that point.<br> - <br> - It'd be interesting to know if David has some figures for average numbers of calls before and after the comment. Just based on the fact that multiple drivers have come and said they've been getting fewer calls, it seems like the impact is very real.<br> - <br> - Would it alleviate your concern at all if we limited mention of the cameras in the vehicles to a simple factual statement ("All VC taxis have video cameras installed.")? That is, add in a proviso that it can't be used to promote the company here on the wiki, due to the way it came about. --["Users/TomGarberson"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-04-25 13:40:01'' [[nbsp]] i responded on my page, tg --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-04-25 20:33:48'' [[nbsp]] I see.

Where do you get your statistics?"<br> - <br> - Per Arboretum policy, the dead ducks are removed to prevent the spread of disease. Most likely, the dead ducks are removed in the morning by the Arboretum work crew. I have personally advised the Arboretum many times where I saw the dead bodies. Sometimes, you can see the dead bodies floating in the sewer. This was especially true when the river otters kept killing the ducks because the you could have seen the resultant feather pattern as the otter was defeathering the duck(s). Also, I have spoken with numerous strangers that have independently confirmed they saw dead ducklings or ducks.<br> - <br> - As for the statistics, they are based on various independent people who have tracked the ducks. We have information kept on paper, photographs, videos, etc. As for the current duck population, all you have to do is walk and you will notice the lack of ducks today compared with two years ago, respectively. What is sad is most of the remaining ducks are drakes meaning the population of existing wild ducks will eventually die off.<br> - <br> - I will end this remark with a simple, but powerful observation: You see the hens bring the newly hatched duckling each spring into the sewer, and since not all the ducklings fledged, then many of the ducklings must have died. Also, there were many handicapped ducks that were unable to fly due to broken wings, etc; these handicapped ducks are also gone.

But I took his suggestion and I thought I'd try it to see how it went. In the end, it seems to me that the page ''does'' qualify and somewhat call into question all current claims to have a business in Davis, yes? --["Users/CovertProfessor"] P.S.

I've been here since '05, probably have at least 5K edits. Over the last few years, been a lot more lax and pretty off/on. It helps save wiki sanity. Anyway, check the timeline on the talk page. On the 2nd, Don asked if people would just back off and wait a week. All the 'crazyness' was on the 4th,a holiday, and the 5th. The 2nd The 2nd was a Saturday. The term consensus gets thrown around too much, too often, too quick. Usually, it's due to editors rushing to do what they think is right, and what others agree with. The problem can be that it happens too quick for others to give input. In this case, some people did (like Jim). What was very clear to me was that a huge chunk of the argument about deleting the page was entirely based on PA and his wiki actions.<br> - Arguing over what is consensus changes every twelve months with new active editors. The only original and true wiki norm was that the wiki is here to document Davis history. Period. That's the bigger issue that was actually at danger. What I found sickening was that frequent editors getting overly riled up/sensitive and wanting quicker punitive action. And come on, that's what it was. (I'll have to call out Wes for jumping into more than one talk page with the "I'm so sick of the taxi/bar/whatever, let's just ban it" commentary - clear sign of a needed wiki break.)<br> - Anyway, again, the wiki is here to document Davis history, including businesses. The original founding reason! What I said on the talk page: "So we have what was a Davis business, split from a Davis business, that had at least another location in Davis, is currently officially in Woodland, is also (allegedly illegally) operating out of a residential home in Davis, and still grooms/caters to Davis' dogs/cats." The fact that it was in two Davis locations was being overblown by whether what they're doing NOW is worth mentioning. That's irrelevant - their history is relevant, period. It deserves a page, and I completely stand by CP. I think that if more people took a few steps back, a few deep breaths, and looked at it piece by piece, they might agree. --["Users/EdWins"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-07-06 13:50:16'' [[nbsp]] Sorry you saw my actions as an F-you; they certainly weren't intended that way.

But I really don't get what happened. They made this big fanfare about going online, but then it seemed as though within a few short weeks they put up the paywall. (Perhaps the number of subscribers dropped precipitously?) I'm a print subscriber so the paywall doesn't affect me, and I get that newspapers are having a tough time out there, but I think they owed us a bit more communication about what happened (communication being their business, after all). As for the Vanguard, I know they're not your favorite, but they do often cover stories, or cover them in more depth, than the Enterprise does, so I value it for that. Plus they've got a number of regular commenters who are happy to point out any flaws in their articles, so that helps to fill out the picture. I particularly like it when Sue Greenwald or one of the other Council members comment — I feel like I find out more there than elsewhere. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-08-30 19:07:48'' [[nbsp]] Since Wiscombes has a new owner why should it talk about the previous business?

But my reasons for saying that are on the now-deleted Talk page, and so I won't repeat them here. Indeed, it's the discussion of those criteria that make me think the Talk page should remain. As for how long it stayed on the actual page -- not long enough, in my view. It was a compromise, and I accepted that compromise, but that doesn't mean that I thought it was the right thing to do. The original poster or others with potentially the same complaint could not be expected to find the Talk page, of course.<br> - <br> - Trust me when I say that I don't say any of this lightly, or that I am saying it just to be contentious. I really find the way that the whole situation was handled quite upsetting and a bad precedent for minorities who want to come forward with complaints about unfair treatment. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - * I tend to agree. I don't like the idea that, once discussed, the "ruling" is permanent. Especially with topics that produced a split decision, I like the idea of keeping the discussions open and visible. I've certainly changed my mind over the years, and various "wiki standards" have changed as well. That's why I try to present them as traditions and functional methods that tend to work. Although I do think the Strelitzia comment was very questionable, I don't like it becoming a simplistic precedent with the nuances that were discussed going away. Some discussions -- where everybody generally agrees, for example -- can go away, or perhaps didn't even need to occur (other than to check assumptions). But the ones where there was strong disagreement or well reasoned contradicting opinions presented should probably stay visible as a record and to make it clear that there was not a law laid down, but rather a single agreement made at that time for that situation at that point in the wiki's evolving set of traditions. I'd even go so far as to say that the repeated support for banning William might even make that subject worth keeping open (because at least Don and Jeff are serious in their positions supporting what is currently the minority opinion). The wiki is perpetually changing, not seeking a final product. Leaving some of the corners unfolded is not a bad thing: it's an entry point for people who are interested in participating and seeing how things work, and a way of providing changing wiki traditions to reopen issues in a new light. -jw<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-10-01 12:57:54'' [[nbsp]] Hmm.

My fiance and I cancelled our landline to our apartment last year. (We only had it for the building buzzer to work. Decided it wasn't worth it). *AFTER* we cancelled it, we started receiving a lot of phone calls. Daily. Apparently, upon disconnection, our phone was still active. I couldn't make outgoing calls, but I could receive them. It used to belong to a person we were able to google, a super environmental activist who was travelling the world and owed a shit ton of money to crediters who were trying to track her down. I called the phone company, who said once they disconnected it, it's not their problem. I was trying to explain to these trackers that I have no idea who she is, please stop calling. It was an insane situation. We decided to physically unplug the phone. Every now and then I plug it back in: we still get her incoming calls. (Can't call out though - it'd be too nice to have a "free landline".) --["Users/EdWins"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-02-10 09:19:31'' [[nbsp]] I had a collection agency come after "me" for "my" car, thinking I was somebody else. It was Kevin something, so the agent was absolutely sure I was lying because I had answered the phone with my customary "This is Evan", which he misheard. I had that guy call me over and over, and he would not believe I wasn't who I said I was, accusing me directly of lying -- he got hyper aggressive, even calling me names, and mocking me to try and tell him where the car was, etc. I'd imagine it was probably illegal for a collection agency, but at the time I didn't know any better. I eventually found up that he couldn't or wouldn't hang up on me and I started telling him "I am not Kevin, but I can tell you what I did with the car -- ''if'' I were him...", and then invented stories about it: it sprouted wings, I sunk it in a swamp, I was actually a performance artist, and I had eaten it over time, I was using it as a contraceptive device for Caribbean whales, I had robbed a bank, and we filled the car with pennies and buried it while drunk on cheap schnapps, and now we couldn't find it. All kinds of silly things, always prefixed with "I am not the guy you're looking for, but if I was...". I kind of wonder if they ever found Kevin whats-his-name, and if the guy ever talked to him and realized he had harranged the wrong guy. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-02-13 12:00:51'' [[nbsp]] If slow internet speeds make you a sad panda, do you have a recommended provider of connectivity?

I guess if you want to call me out on being cool with it though, I'll conceed: I still think it was ridiculous. Now when I see a double standard pop up on DW, just seems even more funny to me, and I enjoy taking my jabs when I see people telling other people how to edit. There will probably be more until I feel like things improve. :) Its an imperfect wiki after all!<br> - --["Users/jefftolentino"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-02-24 10:11:18'' [[nbsp]] Not naming names was a courtesy, Tom, but if you want me to call you out directly in the future, that works for me. Either way, there were a lot insults thrown around that weekend, so don't assume that you were totally innocent. Really though, the BW page is somewhat beside the point. I wasn't trying to rehash an old issue, just wanted to point out what I see as an inconsistency in CPs arguments about deleting peoples comments. Its an opinion I have and want to express. If it bothers you, I'm sorry. --["Users/jefftolentino"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-02-24 11:18:52'' [[nbsp]] Haha, so you're saying that the failure of a ban proposal is sufficient reason to delete another user's critical opinion of how a Wiki Board member treats new users? We definitly still see it in two different ways: You see it as a failed propsal, I see it as a useful documentation of problematic editing. Are we going to resolve our opinions on this? Probably not. For now, I'm just sorry we disagree. --["Users/jefftolentino"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-02-24 11:20:53'' [[nbsp]] Sorry Tom-didn't see anywhere where the person had posted that was their name. That still doesn't explain removing comments from other complexes (unless they manage those too) --["Users/PeterBoulay"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-02-24 11:25:52'' [[nbsp]] Ok then maybe the notice will have a positive effect of generating some discussion to educate her about the Wiki then. *shrug* --["Users/PeterBoulay"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-02-24 11:27:47'' [[nbsp]] I see what it say on the business page you sent me. Since it is redundant and quite obnoxious to have to continue to go on here to erase things that have nothing to do with anything today, I will not be doing anything about it. Since you and several others seem to make Wiki your personal business, I plan to let the comments stay. People that go on Wiki and post negative comments, may have been upset at a certain point during that day they posted and should have no bearing on the overall feel of the community. As I stated before, it is a public opinion page and it is just opinions. Have a wonderful weekend Tom. --["Users/HLDAY"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-02-24 13:06:36'' [[nbsp]] Tom, I'm not going to get in a fight with you today. I understand you have your own opinion about the BW page, just as I have mine. If you're insulted, so was I. In all honesty, we both should have been more considerate at the outset, but if you want to call eachother names today, then you're on you own. --["Users/jefftolentino"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-02-24 14:14:40'' [[nbsp]] Well, I do think there are elements of hypocrisy on DW, (again an opinion there), and the liar thing, I don't know. I see how you rationalized your deletion argument (the failed proposal rational), and if you think that's good enough, then that's how you feel, but to me its still a weak argument. If we want to reopen the BW discussion, I think you know where I stand: I'd like to see the proposal page, failed or not, be reinstated. That said, if we leave it deleted, I'm still entitled to an opinion about it. I'm sorry if that insults you, sir, but sometimes people are just going to have thier differences here. --["Users/jefftolentino"]<br> - * So much for "I'm not going to get in a fight with you today".... --["Users/PeterBoulay"]<br> - * Sorry Peter, he left me a response. Its was going towards a fight earlier, but still trying to respond with civility here. He's brought up a few points that I though were worth replying to. Its a topic that, yeah on greater reflection, has continued to bother me, so if we can work part of that out, maybe we should give it a go.<br> - * or you can honor his request-"I'd be happy to talk on the phone or in person if you think that might help. But the nonsense needs to stop.".--["Users/PeterBoulay"]<br> - * Ok Peter, thanks. We've got each others emails, so if we want to take it offline that's fine. My main intention last night was pointing out that all kinds of people have deleted other peoples contributions on the wiki, and I'm sorry Tom got the crappy end of the stick with that. Its wasn't really meant that way. CP contributed to that event too. I wanted to show that there are bad edits on DW, and we're all going to disagree about whats correct from time to time. --JT<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-02-24 14:53:42'' [[nbsp]] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNGE8qpU4fU --["Users/StevenDaubert"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-02-24 14:53:49'' [[nbsp]] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tyct9l-fD8 --["Users/StevenDaubert"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-02-26 14:02:39'' [[nbsp]] Thanks! --["Users/MeggoWaffle"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-03-07 16:03:12'' [[nbsp]] thanks TG, all is well, hope new year is prosperous. --["Users/ndah100"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-03-07 16:03:59'' [[nbsp]] I would reply to yours and CP monticellos response to me, but Rhoda would write a dissertation defending herself, I'll save myself from that. --["Users/ndah100"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-03-09 15:38:55'' [[nbsp]] Now *that's* a good picture for the page! --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-03-11 19:27:41'' [[nbsp]] ...and you too! --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-03-11 19:30:52'' [[nbsp]] Your gift to quisaba will affirm your hearts intentions. --["Users/MikeyCrews"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-03-12 12:07:20'' [[nbsp]] Sorry to hear about B&amp;A. :( --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-03-12 13:19:13'' [[nbsp]] =( --["Users/MeggoWaffle"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-03-12 15:22:14'' [[nbsp]] &gt;Rm comment that just had an out-of-date copy of website... weird<br> - <br> - My take on that comment, after a very quick look, was that a student at UCD redesigned the website as a class project, and wanted people to see their work.

The *ONLY* reason, I believe, he stopped is because JW locked the page. It is painfully obvious to me (and I think you) that he has no interest in constructive discussion. You have gone far and beyond and he simply doesn't respect that. I truly think he IS worthy of not necessarily a ban--but a 2-3 month suspension--from the Wiki. Then see if he behaves. --["Users/PeterBoulay"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-03-16 11:56:25'' [[nbsp]] '''Rough Overview:''' In eight years, five people have been banned. One is in Davis, the rest are not (one was, but I think had moved by the time he was banned... if I'm wrong, the timing was close). All are adult males, but they range in age quite a bit. Three were banned at the request of the person being banned or their spouse. Two involved physical threats and off-wiki intimidation. Two used non-trivial legal threats. I believe three are mentally ill (mostly based on their difficulties in concurrent non-wiki matters), but only know of one formal diagnosis.<br> - <br> - Much of the above is subjective (when does a rant turn into a threat, etc), and is provided purely for demographic reasons. I do not think it is ethical to provide further details, including who is who due to the nature of some of the breakdowns and events. Much like trying to guess an anonymous editor's identity, I would prefer speculation not occur on the wiki, as it will only wind up hurting people (including non-banned editors who had difficulties due to their actions off-wiki).<br> - <br> - As for the accounts, they are generally either commercial spammers hitting Wiki Spot or, in a few cases, general use accounts that were being used by a bunch of wiki editors for humor until somebody who had the password used it and went too far. Stuff like "let me help you cheat on your essays, clean your pool, or link to mail order drugs" in the first case and gag edits and parody in the second. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-03-18 12:51:05'' [[nbsp]] I'm still a bit fuzzy on what happens at ["Dawn"].It seems that the sun reappears sometime between I fall asleep and when I wake up.

You need to cease the harassment and accusations. You should be aware that I called and left a message on the number for ["Boardwalk Apartments"] - since I have no other means of contacting you - to try to put a stop to this. I was extremely tolerant the first time around when Michael made his accusations, and when you followed up by doing the same. I am through being tolerant.<br> - <br> - If you continue with this course of conduct I am prepared to take legal action.

I've been following that one for years. Funny thing, I was there the day they posted the signs up. No one said anything about it, and a few of the employees were caught off guard as well. They are being offered employment where available, but many either cannot commute or cannot move to the new locations. Both the Davis and Woodland locations for Wendy's are owned by a franchise that has 13 other locations and the word is that they are preparing to build a new location more central to both cities. Possible locations include the corner across the street from Carl's Junior or near the Best Buy in Woodland. Time will tell if this happens though. --["Users/Wes-P"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-07-11 16:11:20'' [[nbsp]] Speaking of the fast food giants, did you know Subway is the number one fast food place worldwide, having beaten McDonalds last year? --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-07-16 18:01:58'' [[nbsp]] Yeah, I'm pretty self-conscious about that sort of thing. I'm also aware that comments like that do raise the possibility that I could be identified, although in this case the possibility seemed slim. I think someone would already have to have a pretty good guess at my identity to be able to glean anything from the fact that I was at the restaurant today. If that person has already figured me out, saw me at the restaurant today, and kept silent about the whole thing, I think I can continue to trust them. I have certainly said things that gave away my identity to a far greater degree. Now, if I said that I was *going* to be somewhere at a certain date/time, that's another story entirely...<br> - <br> - Anyway, in this case the comment I responded to seemed to so totally misrepresent the state of affairs that I felt it was worth the small risk of dropping one further bit of information about myself (that I like the restaurant already being known).<br> - <br> - Somewhat relatedly, half of me loves this time of year because it's so quiet, and half of me fears that the local businesses won't make it through the summer. Thus the comment struck me in the vein of "in case it weren't hard enough..."<br> - --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-07-19 11:44:52'' [[nbsp]] Yeah, I knew what it was.

I have to agree: the only reason I don't shop at Westlake more often is due to their lack of seafood. When they first opened, they had a fish department that was on par with the Co-op, with fresh sushi rolled everyday and wild-caught options. Alas, the demand wasn't there so I can't blame them for downsizing. However, now that you're on this side of town, you'll grow to appreciate its presence and rue any day you have to brave the Covell Safeway or the long trek to Nugget. I'll still go to Nugget for heavy grocery shopping, but for everyday ingredients and items and easy access to fresh produce, Westlake is a wonderful option to have. --["Users/KevinWan"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-08-12 20:56:27'' [[nbsp]] Aww, well Robin was a dear!

I've been following that one for years. Funny thing, I was there the day they posted the signs up. No one said anything about it, and a few of the employees were caught off guard as well. They are being offered employment where available, but many either cannot commute or cannot move to the new locations. Both the Davis and Woodland locations for Wendy's are owned by a franchise that has 13 other locations and the word is that they are preparing to build a new location more central to both cities.

I'm also aware that comments like that do raise the possibility that I could be identified, although in this case the possibility seemed slim. I think someone would already have to have a pretty good guess at my identity to be able to glean anything from the fact that I was at the restaurant today. If that person has already figured me out, saw me at the restaurant today, and kept silent about the whole thing, I think I can continue to trust them. I have certainly said things that gave away my identity to a far greater degree. Now, if I said that I was *going* to be somewhere at a certain date/time, that's another story entirely...<br> + <br> + Anyway, in this case the comment I responded to seemed to so totally misrepresent the state of affairs that I felt it was worth the small risk of dropping one further bit of information about myself (that I like the restaurant already being known).<br> + <br> + Somewhat relatedly, half of me loves this time of year because it's so quiet, and half of me fears that the local businesses won't make it through the summer.

I have to agree: the only reason I don't shop at Westlake more often is due to their lack of seafood. When they first opened, they had a fish department that was on par with the Co-op, with fresh sushi rolled everyday and wild-caught options. Alas, the demand wasn't there so I can't blame them for downsizing. However, now that you're on this side of town, you'll grow to appreciate its presence and rue any day you have to brave the Covell Safeway or the long trek to Nugget. I'll still go to Nugget for heavy grocery shopping, but for everyday ingredients and items and easy access to fresh produce, Westlake is a wonderful option to have. --["Users/KevinWan"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-08-12 20:56:27'' [[nbsp]] Aww, well Robin was a dear!

My fiance and I cancelled our landline to our apartment last year. (We only had it for the building buzzer to work. Decided it wasn't worth it). *AFTER* we cancelled it, we started receiving a lot of phone calls. Daily. Apparently, upon disconnection, our phone was still active. I couldn't make outgoing calls, but I could receive them. It used to belong to a person we were able to google, a super environmental activist who was travelling the world and owed a shit ton of money to crediters who were trying to track her down. I called the phone company, who said once they disconnected it, it's not their problem. I was trying to explain to these trackers that I have no idea who she is, please stop calling. It was an insane situation. We decided to physically unplug the phone. Every now and then I plug it back in: we still get her incoming calls. (Can't call out though - it'd be too nice to have a "free landline".) --["Users/EdWins"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-02-10 09:19:31'' [[nbsp]] I had a collection agency come after "me" for "my" car, thinking I was somebody else. It was Kevin something, so the agent was absolutely sure I was lying because I had answered the phone with my customary "This is Evan", which he misheard. I had that guy call me over and over, and he would not believe I wasn't who I said I was, accusing me directly of lying -- he got hyper aggressive, even calling me names, and mocking me to try and tell him where the car was, etc. I'd imagine it was probably illegal for a collection agency, but at the time I didn't know any better. I eventually found up that he couldn't or wouldn't hang up on me and I started telling him "I am not Kevin, but I can tell you what I did with the car -- ''if'' I were him...", and then invented stories about it: it sprouted wings, I sunk it in a swamp, I was actually a performance artist, and I had eaten it over time, I was using it as a contraceptive device for Caribbean whales, I had robbed a bank, and we filled the car with pennies and buried it while drunk on cheap schnapps, and now we couldn't find it. All kinds of silly things, always prefixed with "I am not the guy you're looking for, but if I was...". I kind of wonder if they ever found Kevin whats-his-name, and if the guy ever talked to him and realized he had harranged the wrong guy. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-02-13 12:00:51'' [[nbsp]] If slow internet speeds make you a sad panda, do you have a recommended provider of connectivity?

These days it's fairly consistent, though. I go through a day or two once every 6 months or so where it'll be slow or spotty, but it's rare, at least during the morning and evening when I'm around and likely to use it. --tg<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-02-24 09:29:07'' [[nbsp]] Haha, wasn't trying to name names, sir. I guess if you want to call me out on being cool with it though, I'll conceed: I still think it was ridiculous. Now when I see a double standard pop up on DW, just seems even more funny to me, and I enjoy taking my jabs when I see people telling other people how to edit. There will probably be more until I feel like things improve. :) Its an imperfect wiki after all!<br> + --["Users/jefftolentino"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-02-24 10:11:18'' [[nbsp]] Not naming names was a courtesy, Tom, but if you want me to call you out directly in the future, that works for me. Either way, there were a lot insults thrown around that weekend, so don't assume that you were totally innocent. Really though, the BW page is somewhat beside the point. I wasn't trying to rehash an old issue, just wanted to point out what I see as an inconsistency in CPs arguments about deleting peoples comments. Its an opinion I have and want to express. If it bothers you, I'm sorry. --["Users/jefftolentino"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-02-24 11:18:52'' [[nbsp]] Haha, so you're saying that the failure of a ban proposal is sufficient reason to delete another user's critical opinion of how a Wiki Board member treats new users? We definitly still see it in two different ways: You see it as a failed propsal, I see it as a useful documentation of problematic editing. Are we going to resolve our opinions on this? Probably not. For now, I'm just sorry we disagree. --["Users/jefftolentino"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-02-24 11:20:53'' [[nbsp]] Sorry Tom-didn't see anywhere where the person had posted that was their name.

Since it is redundant and quite obnoxious to have to continue to go on here to erase things that have nothing to do with anything today, I will not be doing anything about it. Since you and several others seem to make Wiki your personal business, I plan to let the comments stay. People that go on Wiki and post negative comments, may have been upset at a certain point during that day they posted and should have no bearing on the overall feel of the community. As I stated before, it is a public opinion page and it is just opinions. Have a wonderful weekend Tom. --["Users/HLDAY"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-02-24 13:06:36'' [[nbsp]] Tom, I'm not going to get in a fight with you today. I understand you have your own opinion about the BW page, just as I have mine. If you're insulted, so was I. In all honesty, we both should have been more considerate at the outset, but if you want to call eachother names today, then you're on you own. --["Users/jefftolentino"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-02-24 14:14:40'' [[nbsp]] Well, I do think there are elements of hypocrisy on DW, (again an opinion there), and the liar thing, I don't know. I see how you rationalized your deletion argument (the failed proposal rational), and if you think that's good enough, then that's how you feel, but to me its still a weak argument. If we want to reopen the BW discussion, I think you know where I stand: I'd like to see the proposal page, failed or not, be reinstated. That said, if we leave it deleted, I'm still entitled to an opinion about it. I'm sorry if that insults you, sir, but sometimes people are just going to have thier differences here. --["Users/jefftolentino"]<br> + * So much for "I'm not going to get in a fight with you today".... --["Users/PeterBoulay"]<br> + * Sorry Peter, he left me a response. Its was going towards a fight earlier, but still trying to respond with civility here. He's brought up a few points that I though were worth replying to. Its a topic that, yeah on greater reflection, has continued to bother me, so if we can work part of that out, maybe we should give it a go.<br> + * or you can honor his request-"I'd be happy to talk on the phone or in person if you think that might help. But the nonsense needs to stop.".--["Users/PeterBoulay"]<br> + * Ok Peter, thanks. We've got each others emails, so if we want to take it offline that's fine. My main intention last night was pointing out that all kinds of people have deleted other peoples contributions on the wiki, and I'm sorry Tom got the crappy end of the stick with that. Its wasn't really meant that way. CP contributed to that event too. I wanted to show that there are bad edits on DW, and we're all going to disagree about whats correct from time to time. --JT<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-02-24 14:53:42'' [[nbsp]] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNGE8qpU4fU --["Users/StevenDaubert"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-02-24 14:53:49'' [[nbsp]] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tyct9l-fD8 --["Users/StevenDaubert"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-02-26 14:02:39'' [[nbsp]] Thanks! --["Users/MeggoWaffle"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-03-07 16:03:12'' [[nbsp]] thanks TG, all is well, hope new year is prosperous. --["Users/ndah100"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-03-07 16:03:59'' [[nbsp]] I would reply to yours and CP monticellos response to me, but Rhoda would write a dissertation defending herself, I'll save myself from that. --["Users/ndah100"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-03-09 15:38:55'' [[nbsp]] Now *that's* a good picture for the page! --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-03-11 19:27:41'' [[nbsp]] ...and you too! --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-03-11 19:30:52'' [[nbsp]] Your gift to quisaba will affirm your hearts intentions. --["Users/MikeyCrews"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-03-12 12:07:20'' [[nbsp]] Sorry to hear about B&amp;A. :( --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-03-12 13:19:13'' [[nbsp]] =( --["Users/MeggoWaffle"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-03-12 15:22:14'' [[nbsp]] &gt;Rm comment that just had an out-of-date copy of website... weird<br> + <br> + My take on that comment, after a very quick look, was that a student at UCD redesigned the website as a class project, and wanted people to see their work.

The *ONLY* reason, I believe, he stopped is because JW locked the page. It is painfully obvious to me (and I think you) that he has no interest in constructive discussion. You have gone far and beyond and he simply doesn't respect that. I truly think he IS worthy of not necessarily a ban--but a 2-3 month suspension--from the Wiki. Then see if he behaves. --["Users/PeterBoulay"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-03-16 11:56:25'' [[nbsp]] '''Rough Overview:''' In eight years, five people have been banned. One is in Davis, the rest are not (one was, but I think had moved by the time he was banned... if I'm wrong, the timing was close). All are adult males, but they range in age quite a bit. Three were banned at the request of the person being banned or their spouse. Two involved physical threats and off-wiki intimidation. Two used non-trivial legal threats. I believe three are mentally ill (mostly based on their difficulties in concurrent non-wiki matters), but only know of one formal diagnosis.<br> + <br> + Much of the above is subjective (when does a rant turn into a threat, etc), and is provided purely for demographic reasons. I do not think it is ethical to provide further details, including who is who due to the nature of some of the breakdowns and events. Much like trying to guess an anonymous editor's identity, I would prefer speculation not occur on the wiki, as it will only wind up hurting people (including non-banned editors who had difficulties due to their actions off-wiki).<br> + <br> + As for the accounts, they are generally either commercial spammers hitting Wiki Spot or, in a few cases, general use accounts that were being used by a bunch of wiki editors for humor until somebody who had the password used it and went too far. Stuff like "let me help you cheat on your essays, clean your pool, or link to mail order drugs" in the first case and gag edits and parody in the second. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-03-18 12:51:05'' [[nbsp]] I'm still a bit fuzzy on what happens at ["Dawn"].It seems that the sun reappears sometime between I fall asleep and when I wake up.

But my reasons for saying that are on the now-deleted Talk page, and so I won't repeat them here. Indeed, it's the discussion of those criteria that make me think the Talk page should remain. As for how long it stayed on the actual page -- not long enough, in my view. It was a compromise, and I accepted that compromise, but that doesn't mean that I thought it was the right thing to do. The original poster or others with potentially the same complaint could not be expected to find the Talk page, of course.<br> + <br> + Trust me when I say that I don't say any of this lightly, or that I am saying it just to be contentious. I really find the way that the whole situation was handled quite upsetting and a bad precedent for minorities who want to come forward with complaints about unfair treatment. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> + * I tend to agree. I don't like the idea that, once discussed, the "ruling" is permanent. Especially with topics that produced a split decision, I like the idea of keeping the discussions open and visible. I've certainly changed my mind over the years, and various "wiki standards" have changed as well. That's why I try to present them as traditions and functional methods that tend to work. Although I do think the Strelitzia comment was very questionable, I don't like it becoming a simplistic precedent with the nuances that were discussed going away. Some discussions -- where everybody generally agrees, for example -- can go away, or perhaps didn't even need to occur (other than to check assumptions). But the ones where there was strong disagreement or well reasoned contradicting opinions presented should probably stay visible as a record and to make it clear that there was not a law laid down, but rather a single agreement made at that time for that situation at that point in the wiki's evolving set of traditions. I'd even go so far as to say that the repeated support for banning William might even make that subject worth keeping open (because at least Don and Jeff are serious in their positions supporting what is currently the minority opinion). The wiki is perpetually changing, not seeking a final product. Leaving some of the corners unfolded is not a bad thing: it's an entry point for people who are interested in participating and seeing how things work, and a way of providing changing wiki traditions to reopen issues in a new light. -jw<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-10-01 12:57:54'' [[nbsp]] Hmm.

We have lots of other lists that we try to make comprehensive, and I think it's arbitrary to say that lists should be comprehensive ''unless'' they're long, in which case they shouldn't be.

I've been here since '05, probably have at least 5K edits. Over the last few years, been a lot more lax and pretty off/on. It helps save wiki sanity. Anyway, check the timeline on the talk page. On the 2nd, Don asked if people would just back off and wait a week. All the 'crazyness' was on the 4th,a holiday, and the 5th. The 2nd The 2nd was a Saturday. The term consensus gets thrown around too much, too often, too quick. Usually, it's due to editors rushing to do what they think is right, and what others agree with. The problem can be that it happens too quick for others to give input. In this case, some people did (like Jim). What was very clear to me was that a huge chunk of the argument about deleting the page was entirely based on PA and his wiki actions.<br> + Arguing over what is consensus changes every twelve months with new active editors. The only original and true wiki norm was that the wiki is here to document Davis history. Period. That's the bigger issue that was actually at danger. What I found sickening was that frequent editors getting overly riled up/sensitive and wanting quicker punitive action. And come on, that's what it was. (I'll have to call out Wes for jumping into more than one talk page with the "I'm so sick of the taxi/bar/whatever, let's just ban it" commentary - clear sign of a needed wiki break.)<br> + Anyway, again, the wiki is here to document Davis history, including businesses. The original founding reason! What I said on the talk page: "So we have what was a Davis business, split from a Davis business, that had at least another location in Davis, is currently officially in Woodland, is also (allegedly illegally) operating out of a residential home in Davis, and still grooms/caters to Davis' dogs/cats." The fact that it was in two Davis locations was being overblown by whether what they're doing NOW is worth mentioning. That's irrelevant - their history is relevant, period. It deserves a page, and I completely stand by CP. I think that if more people took a few steps back, a few deep breaths, and looked at it piece by piece, they might agree. --["Users/EdWins"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-07-06 13:50:16'' [[nbsp]] Sorry you saw my actions as an F-you; they certainly weren't intended that way.

I just thought it revealed something about how the owner of Monticello sees her restaurant and the rest of Davis's restaurants, and how she feels about a controversial issue that affect Davis's restaurants. Fair point about not wanting to encourage the Rhonda-bashing, though, however tempting it might be.

But I really don't get what happened. They made this big fanfare about going online, but then it seemed as though within a few short weeks they put up the paywall. (Perhaps the number of subscribers dropped precipitously?) I'm a print subscriber so the paywall doesn't affect me, and I get that newspapers are having a tough time out there, but I think they owed us a bit more communication about what happened (communication being their business, after all). As for the Vanguard, I know they're not your favorite, but they do often cover stories, or cover them in more depth, than the Enterprise does, so I value it for that. Plus they've got a number of regular commenters who are happy to point out any flaws in their articles, so that helps to fill out the picture.

Most likely, the dead ducks are removed in the morning by the Arboretum work crew. I have personally advised the Arboretum many times where I saw the dead bodies. Sometimes, you can see the dead bodies floating in the sewer. This was especially true when the river otters kept killing the ducks because the you could have seen the resultant feather pattern as the otter was defeathering the duck(s). Also, I have spoken with numerous strangers that have independently confirmed they saw dead ducklings or ducks.<br> + <br> + As for the statistics, they are based on various independent people who have tracked the ducks. We have information kept on paper, photographs, videos, etc. As for the current duck population, all you have to do is walk and you will notice the lack of ducks today compared with two years ago, respectively. What is sad is most of the remaining ducks are drakes meaning the population of existing wild ducks will eventually die off.<br> + <br> + I will end this remark with a simple, but powerful observation: You see the hens bring the newly hatched duckling each spring into the sewer, and since not all the ducklings fledged, then many of the ducklings must have died. Also, there were many handicapped ducks that were unable to fly due to broken wings, etc; these handicapped ducks are also gone.

If you all (career ediotrs) are more concerned with the primacy of your own words rather than what the truth is, then your "community" isn't representative of the very real world from which the Wiki first sprung...i mean, can we not agree there was a REAL tangible world BEFORE the fledgling<br> + Wiki was born? I honestly feel most people in this "community" are well meaning and quite accomplished and astute in their oxygen-based worlds. But this Wiki as far as this issue ia concerned, is suffering from a lack of humility and common sense. It seems quite a desparate act to defend words from someone who has left the conversation. I find<br> + it further perplexing that not a one of the editors stood behind a business' right to conduct its work without such a Mar, given<br> + its 7 years on the Wiki without any kind of accusation CLoSe to what was made. I could see if we had a<br> + string of SHady comments in regard to the safety of ladies in Village Cabs. Frankly, I dont see why any business would want to be on the Wiki if they get no consideration for the time and<br> + history they have on its erasable and surreal pages. Did any editor check with Davis PD for any complaints against us ? Has anyone checked DUN &amp; Bradstreet for our fiduciary creditworthiness as a business? No. everyone is myopically worried about how the Wiki should handle this or that. I submit to you kind<br> + sir, that Its quite heavy to my business in this ecomomy. This is my only livelihood. Some of<br> + the drivers as well. Please consider that we had 60,000 hours plus of active service ( 24 hours in operation since 2004) and not one insinuation from our lady riders that we gave them any reason to feel unsafe. My wife was a customer for almost 3 years before we even dated. When we dated, we got engaged 3 weeks afterward. We have many many lady regulars. I really think the Wiki and its career editors should exercise more real-world analysis of accusations whether or not the person gives their REAL NAME. A real name van<br> + have just as much a reason or chance to be untrue or incorrect as a pseudonym or ghost writer can. A business should be given<br> + the benefit of the doubt when it comes to such seriously economic matters. After all, the truth will bear itself out, right? 7 years weighed against lesser years of editorial experience on the accuser's part? I am not too sure this is a balanced appraisal of how long a publication should allow sidelong glances and second thoughts to trump the effects of what may have actually gone on...i mean the story was an Afterthought, the writer didnt seem to think it was crucial enough to report in the "real world". Is Village Cabs history on the wiki indicative or suggestive even<br> + of this behavior by any of its drivers? Nothing to even conjecture. One editor with less history, makes a factless (no day, no descriptions only a business name) writes a<br> + shocking story, and then under criticism (much inappropriate criticism) she leaves<br> + the Wiki. We are taking security of customers even more seriously because of it, but we in no way shape or form acknowledge or accept her story as fact, just as a reminder to us that we habe been to naive to think we wouldnt need to go so far as to have cameras to protect ourselves from stories written without any real world followup or clarification. And now an editor says I am<br> + whitewashing this whole thing by removing the reference to the story. No, I am just removing the doubt from our established reputation as a<br> + trustworthy micro cab company. I think 7 years if hard work gives me the right to take that step.<br> + --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-04-22 12:30:01'' [[nbsp]] thanks for those edit tips btw. im usually driving days so not so much time to learn that stuff --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-04-22 12:54:00'' [[nbsp]] ...excuse my series of typos... --["Users/DavidPlacencia"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-04-22 17:32:23'' [[nbsp]] Absolutely not a fan of "requiring" off-wiki actions as a prelude to wiki comments.

It's a VERY good point. Personally, I try to support tact, compassion and a strong voice. That is, express negatives in a manner in which they are not hostile, and be aware that one's actions have consequences for others, so do not speak in a way that __needlessly__ hurts others. After that, speak up and voice your views with as much clarity as possible. Alas, in this particular instance the original story may have met all of those criteria from her perspective (relating a situation in which she saw a victim). --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-04-24 22:04:40'' [[nbsp]] I already replied to your fairness point. I'd say that a good example where the wiki community comes into play is technical issues like account names, as they are not an intrinsic part of Davis. Accusations -- both because of their source and ramifications -- seem to be to be more relevant to the Davis community as a whole than just the subset of the wiki community, and so it is within that larger context that things like fairness should be judged. Or maybe I'm putting too fine a point on it. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-04-25 09:56:53'' [[nbsp]] I know it wasn't your intent, but your comment on VC ends up reading as: 'sweep it under the rug.' 'Something happened, but it got dealt with in some fashion, so in the end the original comment is irrelevant.' If anything, you're advocating, unintentionally, integrating Ashley's comment into the page if there's any mention of security cameras --- because what led to cameras being installed in every cab?<br> + <br> + To set up an awful analogy, it'd be somewhat like if I said your restaurant had a cook that was rumored/heard to/seen spiting into food or not washing hands...so the restaurant installs cameras in the kitchen. That's nice, and then you can go on to tell your patrons that the food is totally hygienic and trustworthy because hey, we even have cameras and do a background check on our chefs. But...what again led to the cameras? The comment/allegation is completely swept under the rug, when in fact it's actually now much more relevant as a point of history.<br> + <br> + X was alleged, so the company changed by doing Y. I honestly think you're overestimating what you're referring to harm that comes out of a mention when put into the proper context on the page (such as the compromise comment and David's followup rebuttal). Having mentioning of X doesn't equate to endorsement of content or admission of guilt to X, and I doubt that many people generally see it that way. Usually, a company/group is lauded for stepping up and doing Y. It's not about Removing all mention of X seems to do it injustice, and it puts a fake spin on Y. It would be an incomplete story with a murky history. I wonder if it'd be worse down the line in a few years (Sigma Chi rumor style? Isn't that the company with the cameras?) to not simply address it up front, in the open and immediately have the rebuttal to squash concerns. --["Users/EdWins"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-04-25 10:03:00'' [[nbsp]] I hate to pick apart tidbits and be a stickler for little things, but just trying to get my point on the "First X, then Y" thing across.<br> + <br> + You had written, "On the matter of safety, David is going to install (already has installed?) video cameras in all of the Village cabs. Are we all more or less in agreement that once that's complete, the safety issue is pretty much resolved? It's hard to imagine a man, knowing he's on film, molesting someone. Thus it seems that the safety concern will be largely resolved once the cameras in place. Sure, it's conceivable there's a serial molester who's going to go way out of his way to continue molesting women... but if that's the case, neither the comment nor the video cameras are going to do much about it. On other words, while horrifying, it's not really within the scope of the safety benefit offered by the comment—it's irrelevant."<br> + <br> + I think that line makes the restaurant analogy fit a bit better. We should remove all posts with concern or alleged unhygienic practices or spitting into food, because....<br> + <br> + "Are we all more or less in agreement that once [camera installation is] complete, the safety issue is pretty much resolved? It's hard to imagine a cook, knowing he's on film, spitting into food. Thus it seems that the safety concern will be largely resolved once the cameras in place. Sure, it's conceivable there's a serial unhygienic jerk who's going to go way out of his way to continue being gross with food... but if that's the case, neither the comment nor the video cameras are going to do much about it. On other words, while horrifying, it's not really within the scope of the safety benefit offered by the comment—it's irrelevant."<br> + <br> + And so the original comment about the cook not washing his hands and spitting into the food is wiped. We can write up about Y on the page, but it seems just wrong to completely delete X from the history, whether it's false or not, --- when X is the entire reason everything changed. Isn't it? --["Users/EdWins"]<br> + Point well taken. From the perspective of examining why something happened, it's certainly relevant. To my mind, though, that's a relatively minor consideration compared to the magnitude of impact from the second point in the proposal. The extent of the assumptions necessary to reach the conclusion that "this isn't the kind of company I want to do business with" frankly horrifies me. That's what differentiates it from an issue of sanitation (which, from what I've heard, happens in ''most'' food establishments): the magnitude of the benefit and the harm. When 99% (or 95%, or whatever you think is reasonable) of the benefit to the community has already been realized once the cameras are installed, there's only very limited continued good emanating from the account. On the flip side, 100% of the harm continues. It's a massively disproportionate effect. And just to be clear, my objection isn't that the business is harmed, but that the business is harmed unjustly because of assumptions necessary to get to that point.<br> + <br> + It'd be interesting to know if David has some figures for average numbers of calls before and after the comment. Just based on the fact that multiple drivers have come and said they've been getting fewer calls, it seems like the impact is very real.<br> + <br> + Would it alleviate your concern at all if we limited mention of the cameras in the vehicles to a simple factual statement ("All VC taxis have video cameras installed.")?

It's not ideal, but if you're a customer at these vendors, it may be worthwhile. Otherwise, I'd just start each day with a pocketful of coins, and take the time to count out $2-$4 worth for small purchases that you might otherwise use a debit card for.

Accusing me of being paranoid as some users have isn't going to help either. Every comment should be taken with a grain of salt including mine. That's obvious. However, it's up to the reader to determine if they want to actually find out the truth by living there. It's up to them to assess management for themselves when they're in there to determine if there's any meat to my statement.

See that I just changed the headings to "Arriving" and "Arrived" with a different placement for "2010". 3 months tenure on "arrived" seems about right, but the "new" perception may vary with different businesses or there may not be a strict reckoning. At the beginning of 2011 there will be "2010" and "2011" headings. As the year passes, "2010" may disappear, because the "arrived" businesses have matured and left the list.

Sorry for my confusion.<br> + --["Users/RobertTruslow"]<br> + ------<br> + Forgive me if I'm wrong because my math is weak, but, in my understanding, that final 35% gain wouldn't be able to be applied in that manner. I've quoted the following from one of the sources that you provided to see if this is where you got the 35% percent from. I have bolded two sentences to show why I think that the 35% percent would not apply to handheld leaf blowers in this case.<br> + <br> + "Small Nonroad Engines<br> + <br> + We are adopting HC+NOx exhaust emission standards of 10 g/kW-hr for Class I engines starting in the 2012 model year and 8 g/kW-hr for Class II engines starting in the 2011 model year. We expect manufacturers to meet these standards by improving fuel systems, engine combustion and in some cases adding catalysts. These standards are consistent with the requirements recently adopted by the California Air Resources Board (ARB). '''We are not adopting new exhaust emission standards for handheld emissions.'''<br> + <br> + For spark-ignition engines used in marine generators, we are adopting a more stringent Phase 3 CO emission standard of 5 g/kW-hr. This applies equally to all sizes of small SI engines used in marine generators.<br> + <br> + '''We are adopting new evaporative emission standards for both handheld and nonhandheld equipment.''' The new standards include requirements to control fuel tank permeation, fuel line permeation, and diffusion emissions. For nonhandheld engines we also require control of running losses.<br> + <br> + When fully implemented, the new standards will result in a 35 percent reduction in HC+NOx emissions from new engines’ exhaust. The new standards will reduce evaporative emissions by 45 percent." [http://www.epa.gov/otaq/regs/nonroad/marinesi-equipld/420f08013.htm]<br> + <br> + So the way I understand it, somehow the newest HC+NOx standards, to which the 35 percent reduction refers, are only being applied to nonhandheld equipment. What is confusing to me, however, is that the evaporative emissions standards, which do seem to apply to handhelds like leaf blowers, are listed as having a 45 percent reduction. Although my limited knowledge of this subject leads me to speculate that evaporative emissions also has something to do with hydrocarbons, apparently they are treated as separate categories of pollution. Therefore, the 45 percent wouldn't be able to be multiplied to those numbers you mentioned either because the result wouldn't accurately represent a net benefit, being that they are apparently two different kinds of pollution. Please feel free to correct my understanding if you feel I've erred.<br> + <br> + On a side note, thanks for contributing your knowledge on the subject. I was totally unaware of the encouraging advances in leaf-blower emission reductions in recent years until you brought it up. --["Users/ScottMeehleib"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-12-01 09:55:31'' [[nbsp]] Nice call on the Welcome to the Wiki/Business Owners...

If the original commenter pops up and wants it there, I'll be the first to defend it, but I think there was some late night confusion and well intended complaining on other people's behalf who did not want to publicly complain. It's all very confusing, very vague, and I'm inclined to let it lie unless somebody jumps in to defend the comment. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-01-09 23:38:02'' [[nbsp]] Regarding "Users" and "People" at least, I was thinking of describing things Davis related. For example, "People" could more appropriately mention several people rather than only a particular person on a particular person's page. --["Users/BruceHansen"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-01-10 10:18:43'' [[nbsp]] "People" of course has a list including a fraction of the users and a few others. The only person mentioned is in "so AmitVainsencher doesn't cry!", not more than that as you indicated (You must have been referring to the list, which I was not referring to.) Did you take that last version of "Tunnel" into account? The Name "Tunnel" could be made more specific. A kind of disambiguation with "Tunnel" or "Tunnels" may or may not be called for. What do you think?<br> + <br> + --["Users/BruceHansen"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-01-16 05:46:45'' [[nbsp]] There's a reply for you and William. --["Users/BruceHansen"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-01-17 13:15:42'' [[nbsp]] Haha yeah, I got a few looks too, when I asked if that meant the gays, or jews, or irish, or polish, or so on would ever have felt any discrimination. I did get the idea that it could have been interesting and worthwhile, and that it was the people themselves that were the bad part of the experience.

It's a pretty awesome resource because the authors, Sprague and Atwell, tried to collect short biographical information on literally all the residents, including their marriages, place of birth, and business pursuits.

It seems weird to say the comments are for "entertainment purposes" when they are clearly for educational purposes. Of course I want to make sure that no one can diagnose or treat any disease based purely on a text conversation. "entertainment purposes only" just seems like a pretty lame disclaimer, but disclaimers are pretty lame by their very nature. --["Users/DagonJones"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-02-02 10:20:38'' [[nbsp]] I just added the non-bold bit after the disclaimer.

Good thing my friend was paying attention or it could have been much worse. He was only banged up, no broken bones or anything, but I am just so mad they zoomed away without checking if he was hurt.

Perhaps you are not aware that when I changed it to "IFix Electronics" I did so by copying and pasting the exact lettering from the IFix Electronics website, therefore that is how the capitaization of their name is and how it should be on the Davis wiki. If you disagree with this logic please send me a comment. --["Users/RealComputers"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-02-23 18:38:26'' [[nbsp]] Yeah, clearly I'm not very good at this hiatus thing.

It's all 1st years... One, for example, James Schlinger has apparently made me infamous on Facebook. About a month ago now, they had an event/study session at LP and there were about 40 in attendance. All decided to bunch together at the far end of the bar by the second doorway. I had to ask them politely for about a half hour to please move since this was causing a fire hazard/safety violation. They refused, so for the next half hour I was a bit more blunt, while still being polite. Still, they remained. Finally, I began to threaten to kick them out if they remained grouped together in that location. They finally began to slowly move. If it had been any other group I would not have tolerated it for as long as I did but the law school has always treated LP well so I gave them quite a bit more leeway. The following evening a 4th year came up to me and told me "You have to see this!"<br> + <br> + I looked at his iPhone facebook app and saw Mr. Schlinger had posted about what a "douche" the owner was. The next comment was about the older bouncer, me, and he commented back that that this was who he meant. It turned into about a 70 comment thread about what a power-hungry/tripping a-hole I was for daring to ask them to move out the way.<br> + <br> + As far as I am concerned, if this is the new batch of Law Students, they might as well stay away from LP for I will not extend them the same courtesy twice. We have never had the kinds of problems this new group has presented...

On a related tangent that doesn't quite apply in this case: Tags are often seen as a panacea, but in my observation, few have performed any benefit to the wiki. People tend to tag and dash, with very little followup. There are a zillion seeds that very very seldom get reviewed, and since Jason left, I don't think anybody is rigorously working through the PhotoRequests. An easy solution that is "prepwork" rather than "creates value" tends to spawn a lot of action doing prepwork without the actual follow through to do what is needed to create value. After all, people can easily tag PhotoRequest... but who is fulfilling those requests ''because of the tag'' rather than because they were at the restaurant/event/place and took a photo for that particular entry? --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-10-12 13:08:51'' [[nbsp]] That's why I replied re: the notice on the talk page and then discussed tags (which are a different topic, but semi-related) here.

Based on what we've got, though, that's not really practical." Create an "unknown" set of years, with the rough year or rough decade that can be guessed at? Refine it to a year and then move it into the timeline? --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-10-12 14:06:33'' [[nbsp]] A chunk of that was because of the source -- old newspapers. I used similar sources (or sometimes the same newspapers), which is why mine bear the same "existed during". Which is common in genealogy sources as well (because that's what I hit on, looking for businesses or phone numbers). It may be the common form for incomplete records. It still pins it to a year, which at least allows it to be sorted in an order that can, over time, be refined, especially if you can get a second date in there (best case would be a start or end date). How are you finding them to tag with the tag? If you want, I can work them over into a "known dates" rough timeline, which beats an era bucket (especially for cases like buildings or organizations, which may start in an early era and continue to today -- are they historical or current?). --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-10-14 18:16:15'' [[nbsp]] I think your reply on "I Hate Davis" is one of the best I've ever read, haha! --["Users/ChristyMarsden"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-10-15 13:39:56'' [[nbsp]] It's not so much that it's a large comic... more that, as somebody who ran BeOS for awhile, I dislike the characterization of Haiku as "experimental". ;-P --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-10-18 14:31:04'' [[nbsp]] Yeah, duplicating is bad.

That's distinct from the "aesthetic choppers" or chopper-style bikes, which are entirely different. The key thing is that the recent ruling is tied to all bikes modified from stock -- the stripped down "a wrench and gas and she runs" style bike. It requires that they have the various components certified whenever altered. So it changes a fairly fundamental aspect of the whole motorcycle concept. It violates one of the key reasons a section of people use that mode of transportation: the idea that there is something you can tear down with your own tools and build back up, hammering out and welding your own parts if you want to, and then pack the tools in a case and go around the world with it. Loud pipes (along with removing or altering your muffler, straight pipes, etc) are all already illegal. There are already noise regulations (the law, in fact, does not actually change the current noise threshold at all, it just mandates certification and labeling). This is more like outlawing modifying your bicycle without a per-modification inspection -- when there are already requirements for things like brakes and a seat. Or (more parallel example) requiring that you get your desktop re-certified by the FCC and UL whenever you add or change hardware in your computer. Not everybody runs a computer in a case that can be pulled off and tweaked every week... but there are certainly those who do. Same goes for certain chopper gearheads. ''Now, keep in mind'' that I got most of this from pro-motorcycle sources, and I ''know'' from experience that media, including niche media, often covers things incorrectly or gets things wrong. So, take it with a medium sized grain of salt. And of course, the existing noise regulations and ban on loud pipes aren't exactly upheld by law enforcement, so there's a question as to if this will be enforced. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-10-21 11:08:33'' [[nbsp]] Thanks for finding the italic mark over in Fruits/Veggies.

Right now, it is not clear what you have to be able to answer. And knowing what you ''have to be able'' to answer -- while it does, by necessity, happen to tell you ''what you need'' to answer -- is a key part of understanding what the requirements are.

Personally, I don't care (other than if it at the level where it impairs service) for certain jobs. I've known an entire TGI Friday's crew that would light up before a shift to keep things loose and happy. That might be an actual improvement, but I know it makes some people who are ''intensely'' uncomfortable when they have to interact with people in an altered mental state. White collar stuff, where your brain is your primary tool, I'd like it sharp while I'm paying for your services, while others don't care. But many people might simply never patronize an establishment that had even a stoned dishwasher in back, capably plowing through a pile of dishes.<br> + <br> + It's one of those accusations whose ramifications can clearly vary greatly by the perception of the person reading the accusation. That makes it a fairly interesting case, and I'm wondering how many others are similar. Bugs at a restaurant don't bother me (a long term infestation would, but I grew up on an island where you simply batted away the occasional large insect trying to explore your table, and like camping or picnicking where you're simply outnumbered), while others are horrified. An occasional chicken feather on my wings makes me chuckle at the missed pluck and move on, while I've seen people swearing off of meat for the same thing. My point is that the seriousness of an accusation isn't objective.<br> + <br> + (And I'm not sure why I'm posting this to you specifically, other than something you said prompted the line of thought). --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> + <br> + That's very true... and it's also a good reason why people want to know about those sorts of things.

You're not the specific target, but you gave me an opening to restate in a more clear manner the original point I was trying to make. I figure if you got through law school, you're used to strong statements to reframe the issue (in this case, hopefully in an honest and truthful manner that brings things to a place of communication). I really think the idea that there is a movement to strictly ban anonymous accounts is a canard built up from poorly worded statements that were intended to support different positions. Don is the only person I'm not sure of, as I'm not really sure where he stands anywhere, as I've tried to break down his positions logically and not quite gotten a firm response (''no offense Don, I'm just honestly uncertain of your stance on some issues''). --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-07-20 07:49:19'' [[nbsp]] If group had paid for a "Welcome the new members of..." ad in the Aggie they wouldn't be able to go back and remove it from the Aggie archive or the Library's copy or keep the Aggie from getting their act together and putting their back archive online. --["Users/JasonAller"]<br> + * Hmm... that's a good point.

The difference I see between the two is that editors were able to engage the source of the comment when it was about Sam's.

I read JabberWokky's comments on it for instance and see his outreach style. --["Users/JasonAller"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-07-28 10:43:14'' [[nbsp]] Hey, are you tabling this weekend?

I think the twisted insanity of it has alot of value as a reflection of Davis history and how the wiki is a part of Davis. Most people who go to the page will probably think tl;dr but I think thats ok, and I think the way it was written before (downplaying, few details) helps keep it from reflecting badly on Sam's. However, I'm told by my coworker that Sam actually still doesn't like the page somehow so I'm willing to let it go away from Sam's page too (I think Sam's opinion about this is important!).

So, yeah, maybe you (or the rest of us -- those who have been bothered by those edits for a long time) could have handled things differently, but it wasn't like the previous attempts had gotten anywhere.

Actually... well, to be honest, I've had tabs open during complex edits and managed to conflict with ''myself'' while editing.

Alas, in this case, I had a ton of stuff in mid-transit and thought that it would cause '''much''' more chaos and gnashing of teeth if I left it out for any significant amount of time.

I think Jason said it best once, that a lot of people have a Pavlovian response to Brian. It's not just specific to him though, this ties in a bit with what I said about SredniV too, that stubbornness unfortunately tends to trump all once people become wikenemies.

And the police don't like the ARC because the ARC is "infamous" for telling people they turn everything into the police, and it makes the police look like they steal things when the items aren't there. So ... putting iPods to be auctioned right off the bat isn't stealing. It's a consequence of budget cuts (which is why they stopped taking iPods. Not enough staff to deal with the lost and found system. Though, they still take most everything else. They actually have a list of things they accept. And they will take an iPod off the random person that finds one.)<br> + <br> + Curious. I didn't know the police auctioned lost and found items after 30 days in the system. Or if the item isn't accepted. --["Users/ChristyMarsden"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-03-11 08:43:45'' [[nbsp]] My iPod wasn't in the auction bin, and the evidence guy says they haven't seen anything from the ARC in a while so I'm still not quite confident of what happens to the fate of lost items. My previous sentiments seemed to blame the police, but now I'm not sure who's at fault here. Either way, I had false hopes that my found iPod would be returned. Ah well. I'm really more bummed about the new headphones that I purchased for it on sale from amazon that were also lost ... haha! --["Users/ChristyMarsden"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-03-11 09:23:33'' [[nbsp]] Silliness is fun, but asking Bizarro World if Drom's [http://daviswiki.org/Bizarro_World?action=diff&amp;version2=191&amp;version1=190 is getting stuff early] that Bizarro World isn't just seems a bit mean.

The Earth Box is pretty big, for example. Tomatoes have large root systems, and need to be in mostly full sun. I've looked at the Topsy Turvy and think that the plant would be rootbound by mid-summer, requiring daily watering thereafter, so it would end up being pretty high maintenance. If it dries out, the blossoms on the plant at the time will wither and fail to fruit. So if you have it on a watering system, or if you're good at keeping things watered, it could be a useful way to get a couple of dozen tomatoes in a situation where you don't have soil. If you have any ground in full sun in which to plant, that will likely give better results.<br> + Having said all that, I really would love to hear about local results.

Are you only growing tomatoes? --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-05-26 07:30:28'' [[nbsp]] We're not sure yet, as it is a project for this weekend. There was an article in the New York Times about it with quite a few links to sites and we read up on things. We have two spots, one that would give us two (or at the most three) plants, and another where we could do at least ten, but gets too much direct sun, so we'd have to put up a lattice over it (it is the porch where we like to sit during sunset, but because of the afternoon sun hitting it all day, it is also where plants go to die). The other, smaller area is where I've grown our little raised garden in the past. Tomatoes, pickling cucumbers and zucchini all appeal, with herbs in the top. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-05-26 07:31:34'' [[nbsp]] http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/20/garden/20tomato.html --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-05-30 23:06:53'' [[nbsp]] Good idea. He's just looking to pick a fight, of course. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> + ------</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div>
