Manners/ politeness 
I read this comment of yours on the Watercooler: "Hey, I'm not an admin - I don't have to be nice! And "wtf" (which I did use) is a lot more acceptable than "What the fuck" anyways." You later stated that if someone (you meant David Shankbone in particular) had a problem with your tone of voice they were to come to your talk page (or email). So thats why I´m writing here.
I disagree with the statements you make (in my quote), but that isn´t the point (I came here for). What I don´t get is where the difficulty in upholding a minimum of politeness towards the other contributers is. Regards Sean Heron 20:14, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
- OK, I had to swallow when I read what you said, but I´ll try following your advice (though only towards you that is):
- What you had said is bullshit (to be more precise: yes "wtf" stands for "What the fuck", please correct me if you think otherwise; and no, just because your not an admin doesn´t mean you shouldn´t be as nice as possible to as many people as possible. Perhaps you would prefer swearing at each other and attacking and being attacked all day long, but me, David Shankbone apparently, and most other users I wager, do not). You were not assuming good faith towards David Shankbone (ever heard of Wikinews:Etiquette?), even after he had tried to explain how come he had been in a hurry.
- I hope not to have to be so blunt to hammer a point across again, and also that you realize what I think you have been doing wrong. Regards Sean Heron 12:35, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
P.S. I feel sorry for having brought up the topic on your page at all now, as we seem to have managed to turn David off reporting here altogether.That thankfully no longer seems to be the case. Sean Heron 20:18, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
Criticism of Users 
I think some people might say that your below quote is not assuming good faith. Everyone makes mistakes (especially me) so please don't criticize people for it. However, I do agree with you that people should check their article before publishing, I am just saying that there are different ways of saying it. An good example of this is this comment SVTCobra sent me when I was forgetting to add categories. Because of the positive way he presented it, I was not angry and have added categories to all of my articles since that comment. --Anonymous101 Talk 20:54, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
