To the reviewer[edit]

Although the list of sources looks long, both of the Twitter sources are mentioned in the MSM sources. The Jerusalem Post is a respectable source and newspaper, but if you have the page open too long, there are some kind of advertisements or something that keep piling up. I advise open it, copy the text only and close it. (It was really weird and slowed my computer to a crawl.) Cheers, --SVTCobra 03:00, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks. --SVTCobra 03:10, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

Also, as far as all the "hate crime" mentions in the sources, it is only because of the judge's (sheriff) words in the conviction and what the prosecution said. The conviction was not under any "hate crime" or "hate speech" law or statute, which is why I was careful in leaving it out. --SVTCobra 03:10, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

First line…[edit]

Fails to deliver the “punch”; what is “Communications Act of 2003.”? Even the headline does not reveal that information. Nor is the information about act explained in the subsequent sentences of the lede. The connection is not established and the flow breaks. It also has information in parenthesis, something one must avoid.

An "act" is another word for a law. The specific law that he was convicted of violating is named and linked. But, yes, I can see where the grossly offensive part which the judge cited should be mentioned. I am fine with removing the parenthetical description of a pug. --SVTCobra 13:37, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

This is coming up tomorrow[edit]

I may need help with this. my keyboard is f'ed. I hold the shift_key down so i don"t type in allCAPS. --SVTCobra 04:44, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

Review[edit]

Hmm... I am beginning to worry if I removed one too many of the old sources from March. --SVTCobra 20:46, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

Review of revision 4401539 [Passed][edit]

Missing "stuff"[edit]

I may be at fault for some of it. I replaced the Newsweek and BBC sources from March with their latest versions because, at a glance, they appeared to restate everything, but perhaps they shortened them quite a bit. Alas, I cannot recall where the "odious crime" quote came from. Leicester Square as the starting point of the protest may have been something I gleaned from following the planning of it over the last few weeks. --SVTCobra 21:34, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
