2011-09-04 22:53:58   Just the gas. I guess I could go deeper, but than I would have to look into all the subsidies Amtrak receives as well. —hankim

2011-09-12 04:13:59   Hi William, do you have any thoughts on Euler's theorem?

We're just looking at it over at PI, and would be pleased if you have any guidance on the maths... —NormanNitram

2011-09-13 11:08:18   re: deleting User/EveWestBessier. It's not cool to just delete without comment claiming a profile is "an ad." Musicians on Davis Wiki have profiles linked to their performances, websites and calendars. This is just more developed than other musician's pages. Just out Duval-Speck, Hardwater and many others. A comment box has even been included at the bottom which allows interactivity, so that reviews/feedback can be provided. This does not make it "an ad" or one-sided.

We have endeavored to make Eve's wiki a community asset and not an advertisement. Her audience respects her capabilities, her performances and her talents. Please re-post Eve's profile and provide guidance/suggestions in the Comment box or privately to conform to what you believe is "correct." Send to me privately at or simply reply here. Thanks in advance. Let's keep it civil. —fknochenhauer

2011-09-13 11:59:43   BTW, re: users/evewestbessier ([WWW], the wiki page that I created and you deleted was a gift from me to Eve, who has been frustrated for years that she couldn't seem to create, edit and manage a personal wiki page of her own. You have stolen her surprise gift while she has been on vacation this week. I did the edits with her knowledge that I was creating a page on her behalf. If there is some "violation of terms," let's compare with other musicians' pages on the Davis Wiki. Eve's just looked better than most.

You're welcome to provide constructive feedback, link suggestions/guidelines, but restoring the page in its entirety putting your comments in the Comment box seems appropriate and the way to go. Let's work together on this, o.k.? Editing is fine. Deleting is not. —fknochenhauer

2011-09-13 14:54:34   The comment posted below my last post today is without attribution (2011-09-13 11:59:43). It goes without saying, how inappropriate it is.

I have no clue who posted it and do not agree with using such terms or statements. Who posted it is a mystery as there appears no user name. I hope it was not aimed at me as it is highly offensive. - Fritz Knochenhauer, of German descent but a fourth generation American. —fknochenhauer

2011-09-15 16:38:43   Do you think the ethno-centric discussion page should stay? I was getting the impression it could lead to some very hurtful discussions and truly don't want that on the wiki by any means. —Wes-P

2011-09-15 17:19:36   You were very brief in your comments (whether on the user page or, of necessity, in the edit comments) and that came off as abrupt and angry. Of course, that is an inference made by the reader, and as we all know, tone can very easily be misunderstood when people are on the Internet and reading quickly. Especially if the situation itself is a bit adversarial (a disagreement with reverts). So, looking at your comments now, I can see that you might not have been angry while writing them; rather, they are merely matter-of-fact. But since you asked why people thought you were angry, I thought I'd try to explain. —CovertProfessor

2011-09-15 17:33:27   I think I may have come across a logical way to handle all of the cab drama, business drama in general, honestly. It is a requirement that all businesses have a copy of their business license as well as their sellers permits (if they are in that field) to be viewable on the premises and displayed for all to see who request it. Is this a possibility here? Simply request each business post a copy on the wiki to be visible by all... It truly would put an end to over 90% of the dramatic discussions, in my opinion. What do you think? —Wes-P

2011-09-15 20:50:57   Thanks William. I was once a person opposed to such groups, but in recent years I've seen that they really can do a lot of good. —ScottMeehleib

2011-09-19 16:16:43   Yeah, that's good enough for me. Lol —ScottMeehleib

2011-09-19 20:22:24   Thx William...was just an observation and I appreciate the reply. —Users/PeterBoulay


2011-09-21 15:53:58   Yeah, I don't necessarily disagree with you on those points. However, I always figured that the current situation has more to do with ignorance and apathy than actual contempt. I think if you ask a bunch of people point blank if they value their rights and liberties, they will almost all say yes. But as you illustrated, with deeper questioning, for example by bringing up the 2nd Amendment as you did, many of the same people would begin to contradict their earlier broad assertion. Therefore, It's not so much that I disagreed with the bulleted questions, but rather the deliberate vagueness with which they were being asked. The group knows very well which of its stances are seen as controversial to the mainstream, and yet I felt they were obfuscating them and hiding behind generalities to get more people on board their movement. —ScottMeehleib

2011-09-22 18:43:20   So, maybe not so controversial, then. I know, though, that the ACLU does not take a stand on the right to bear arms. I am also pretty sure they are pro-choice. —CovertProfessor

2011-09-22 18:45:12   I know the difference. But most libertarians I know do believe in the right to bear arms. As for being pro-choice... I think that varies among libertarians, in my experience. —CovertProfessor

2011-09-27 18:02:24   Didn't work for me either. —hankim

2011-09-30 10:11:00   Many talk pages remain up on DW (Barefoot Yoga Studio/Talk, ["Strelitzia Flower Co/Talk"], Crying Girl Con Artist/Discussion, Ban Steven Ostrowski). I think there is value in deleting talk pages when debates are contentious and wearing people down, but I don't feel like this is the case. In fact, I think it has value for future editors who aren't familiar with you editing style. —jefftolentino

2011-09-30 16:24:10   yes, believe everything the man tells you —StevenDaubert

2011-10-01 12:45:42   Such a talk page would pull me to Ye Olde Shoppe like a moth to a flame. (Not that I ever need much of an excuse anyway.) X_X —ScottMeehleib

2011-10-06 20:15:47   Can't believe I didn't think of John Lofland... thanks! —MeggoWaffle

2011-10-10 14:23:36   I wouldn't mind a calendar with those Biblely bits! In general, I'm actually a fan of the gospels and some of the older stuff as well. If I could take a magic marker and cross out all the outdated and offensive parts, I could probably enjoy more of the Book. I was going for a minor in religious studies while I attended UC Davis. —ScottMeehleib

2011-10-10 16:56:51   Thanks William. I had no idea that's how it worked... —ScottMeehleib

2011-10-11 11:15:45   Hi William, do you go to St Martins? Or are you Episcopal? The 'image' portrayed by that old wiki page is _NOT_ St. Martin's, nor what they want the community to view their church as. As such, inaccurate and out of date info was removed, and the page updated. —ScottMiller

2011-10-11 12:07:40   William, there are political things going on you are not aware about. Saying St. Martin's goes with the Church of England is not accurate, for example. I suggest you make a separate wiki page describing what the Church of England, Episcopal, etc is and leave this St. Martin's page as the church staff wants it. In respect of this church and their community, I am reverting the changes and ask that you respect this church. Please pick on another church's website and not ours. —ScottMiller Scott, random person stepping in here: In my mind you go wrong with the statement "please pick on another churches website, and not ours" The wiki page is *not* a website, it's a page on a wiki that is about Davis. Morevover, you may be affiliated with said church but that page does not belong to the church. You seem to date yourself on what the wiki is / what is really going on in that sentence. Daubert

2011-10-11 16:55:42   I'll spell it out for you. Church of England - still touchy on homosexuals. Episcopal Church USA: anyone is welcome. It is a hot button topic, and having a St. Martin wiki page which has text 'Church of England' even if you are talking historical is _not_ accurate for this church. Heck, I'm sure you could even say the Baptist church descended from the Roman Catholic church technically, but if you put that on their Baptist wiki page you'd better believe someone from that church will object.

Also the description of the services on that old page were not accurate. At this point having someone _in_ the community who actually attends the services would be good who would want to provide a description of the services.

In the meantime, the page is updated with current photos, the new logo, services times and other information like every other church wiki page on daviswiki. —ScottMiller

2011-10-11 21:17:41   I got a good chuckle at your jab of the Enterprise on the Davis Patch page. —ScottMeehleib

I just wanted to show her that it wasn't just me and a fellow stylist who thought the info should stay. We don't need a ton of people, but a few helps. Thanks for chiming in. —CovertProfessor

2011-11-19 01:10:31   Among other things, the laws regarding sleeping in public spaces keep the homeless from setting up tent cities like the one in Central Park. So, by allowing protestors to do so is basically saying that the homeless are less valid. Unequal enforcement is a lack of justice. If you don't like the laws, try to get them rewritten. And yes, I believe that the police where in the right.

The University may be public, but it is private property and has it's own rules. —MasonMurray

2011-11-19 18:40:16   a noticed a few individual siting protestors get warned by the officers, but they responded with "I'm sitting here" or "don't taze me bro" —StevenDaubert

2011-11-19 19:28:43   face it, you're too bias. The American Civil Liberties Union acknowledges that every protest should get a permit. had the Occupy Davis done so, none of this would have happened. they were unlawfully assembled. —kiddmit3

2011-11-21 00:28:30   Wondering if you could elaborate. Since most media are accustomed to hauling their equipment to scenes that aren't TV studios, what kinds of necessary amenities did the room in Surge II have over, say, a large lecture hall? —MeggoWaffle

2011-11-21 13:03:21   FWIW, [WWW]NYT says "Ten protesters were arrested on misdemeanor charges of unlawful assembly and failure to disperse" —PhilipNeustrom

2011-11-21 19:33:43   I don't disagree about the reasons for her change in tune, but it did seem as though the comparison to 1973 in Greece was what really hit home with her. —CovertProfessor

2011-11-21 19:38:03   I think the point was that someone who had been through what she's been through should have known better than to let something like this happen. —CovertProfessor

2011-11-26 05:25:36   The only mention of Annette Spicozza being placed on administrative leave is on Matt Carmichael, Annette Spicuzza and UC Davis Police Department. Do you think there is any other place for mention? —BruceHansen

2011-11-29 13:51:16   I won't edit for awhile. You can go ahead with your illogical edits. —BruceHansen

2011-11-30 22:46:49   Sorry, old professor's trick: be provocative. —CovertProfessor

2011-12-02 13:20:15   I did a hack of a thumbnail. Do you know who the source of that image is? I'd rather thumbnail it normally using the wiki software so I can float it right and lose the white space. I had to get it pretty small to not have volumes of white space. —JabberWokky

2011-12-02 13:31:04   Yeah. It's probably silly, but the blackouts of the names technically make it a work. —JabberWokky

2011-12-03 17:14:49   fight the good fight —StevenDaubert

2011-12-06 09:01:10   Hey, just wanted to talk to you about the Businesses page. I've got some suggestions of how to make it better (on the Businesses/Talk page, but your thoughts? —NicholasBarry

2011-12-09 18:31:43   Thanks o___-jefftolentino

2011-12-14 00:29:41   with hair color silly —StevenDaubert

2011-12-14 03:40:23   I bet it's just layers of foil and a race against the clock

I'm going to ask one of my hairdresser friends now D:StevenDaubert

2011-12-21 21:07:57   My bad on the link messup. That's what I get for editing on an iPhone. —ChrisDietrich

2011-12-22 20:24:12   Agreed. I'll work on adding a few sentences to the LK page. —CovertProfessor

2011-12-27 11:01:27   I'm fine without the weasly words... was attempting to compromise, but also agree that this isn't controversial stuff here. —CovertProfessor

2012-01-02 13:28:54   Just throwing in the ball for a page on par wtih other non Davis specific "Social Websites." —BruceHansen

2012-01-02 14:09:19   Xanga is awful. I don't remember that. But Orkut did have a sizable UCD community. Also, there was [WWW]this! —EdWins

2012-01-07 12:46:45   It's good you're not "everyone." There are some that don't want to wade through Automobile Repair to find Auto Parts. —BruceHansen

2012-01-09 20:59:47   You lost me. Isn't it a decade even if it's an age? —BruceHansen

2012-01-09 23:23:58   Depends on how you look at it. If you make something a possessive that should be a plural, it's improper grammar. —CovertProfessor

2012-01-17 16:47:16   I'm not expecting any rational justification for what they're doing, but I'm being a little nicer because it looks like they are actually posting from Davis. If they don't give this revert war up, at least we're taking the moral high ground before their ass gets banned. They can't say we didn't try, you know? —MeggoWaffle

2012-01-17 19:22:04   Heading 1 in Malcolm Hall, right? —BruceHansen

2012-01-22 19:48:35   Yep, I bet it's the circles we run it. "Obamacare" is the label that Republicans give to our current health care system (and media picked up the sound bite). It wasn't Obama's first proposal, and it wasn't original to him. Rather, it was essentially the same thing that Romney did in MA. Thus, the reply is often that it isn't Obamacare so much as it's Romneycare. Or, to put the point another way, if you're going to use one loaded label, I say, use them both. (Or neither). —CovertProfessor

2012-01-22 19:57:06   The very article you link to say so in the first sentence: "attempting to turn the tables on critics who use it in a derogatory way." That's interesting that he's trying to turn it around, but at this point the term is so widespread that it's probably more of a strategic move. I wasn't aware that he'd embraced it, but at this point, it's like the term "queer" — some may embrace it, but others feel distinctly uncomfortable about it. —CovertProfessor

2012-01-22 20:08:28   I've never heard a liberal/progressive use the term, and I hang out with a lot of them. So-called Obamacare isn't literally Romneycare, of course. The point is about whether the general idea for the program came from. —CovertProfessor

2012-01-22 20:13:29   I think it does have a strong connotation, usually negative in most circles. The new version, however, seems well worded. It uses the term for clarity after the lesser known proper name. —JabberWokky

2012-01-25 13:14:34   Thanks for fixing Vanguard link. Was in a rush. —MeggoWaffle

2012-02-01 13:32:49   My fortune was wrong. It said "you will press F5", but I was looking at the most recent edit, so I clicked on the page name to see a new one. Your fortunes are worthless and I will not be patronizing this place again. Good day, sir. —TomGarberson

2012-02-01 18:40:01   I'm a week overdue. I'm trying anything and everything at this point. My current facebook status reads: "Perhaps ice cream will get this baby out of me. It's worth a try, right?" —JenniferCook

2012-02-06 23:41:47   Your last edit comment reminds me of a recent one a couple of weeks ago where you were ordering me around. I don't respond well to that. Either my request is fulfilled to not have the trolling discussion there at this time or I will not read my page, because I don't want to see the trolling discussion until I am ready to respond to it. Thank you. —BruceHansen

2012-02-07 16:18:49   Sorry, your change comment just said "cutting superfluous stuff." It wasn't clear that there was a licencing issue. —jefftolentino

2012-02-10 06:41:19   Sorry, I may have reacted hastily. You did respond to one point and I didn't give you much time to address other concerns. —BruceHansen

2012-02-28 13:51:42   Heh, thanks? It was just a formatting fix. —TheDrDonna

2012-02-28 13:58:49   Ahhhh. I can't help but pun, sometimes. —TheDrDonna

2012-03-02 15:50:08   Thanks for your explication regarding how to access public records. That was interesting, and I was blissfully unaware of the possibilities of being haunted by future background checks. —ScottMeehleib

2012-03-07 13:38:56   Oh yeah, I do remember something about that KetMoRee situation now that you mention it. It's disappointing that the ABC can be so ignorant. —ScottMeehleib

2012-03-15 13:52:15   Thx for restoring the Sockpuppet graphic —Users/PeterBoulay

2012-03-15 22:04:33   No idea. The first thing I did when I got my ID card was take a black sharpie to the bank stuff. Students can probably still use it at the branch downtown though. —MeggoWaffle

2012-04-07 21:24:09   Thank you William! :D —ScottMeehleib

2012-04-13 16:12:06   Do you know why the Fs are not lining up correctly on the TOC list? —CovertProfessor

2012-04-19 13:20:27   Given that those facts are out there, it is hard to see that they could be left out of the internal investigation unless they were deliberately ignored. Which is, of course, possible. But a lot of eyes are watching. I guess we'll just have to see what happens. —CovertProfessor

2012-04-20 12:57:47   are you gonna hit up the carnival and ride the Loli Swings? —StevenDaubert

2012-04-27 20:01:05   Lollerskates, fun with spam! Now for kids! —LoriOrf

2012-05-06 23:33:55   I don't feel like getting into a revert war because the regular wiki editors are fairly awful to deal with, but the painted language is too much. —EliYani

2012-05-15 22:16:01   I suspect you're right. I just didn't want my own hand involved in spreading the dirt. —CovertProfessor

2012-05-23 21:52:38   Thank you for letting me know, however I did not check back quickly enough to weigh in. My time has been otherwise engaged. —MasonMurray

2012-06-26 13:52:55   Hey, thanks for the fix on the CoHo South page! I had meant to say that it was the little sibling to the MU's CoHo, but your phrasing/meaning is way clearer. —LizPhillips
