Allen West sourcing
You provided a noteworthy quote, but for future reference, blogs and youtube videos are not considered reliable sources. I'm not disputing that he said it, but a privately-listed video may not be the best citation. Do you know of any more mainstream or neutral organizations which happened to pick up on this? Also, it would be best to format with <ref> tags for consistency. Thank you. ~ S0CO(talk|contribs) 02:15, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
- Pardon me for butting in. I agree about reliable sources, but Wikiquote style generally deprecates footnotes in favor of interlinear citations. ~ Ningauble 15:01, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Your vandalism of the "Martin Luther King" quote page under "Quotes about King" Bullet points 2 and 3
Please stop. If you continue to vandalize pages, add nonsense pages, or pages for nonnotable subjects, you will be blocked from editing Wikiquote.
Political propaganda, not relevant to King, and unsubstantiated in any case. This clearly constitutes an attempt at vandalism and the offending users account should be terminated.
- Stop what? I haven’t made any edits there lately.
- You’re apparently referring to an edit I made to Martin Luther King, Jr. last month, changing an attribution from Ron Paul to Ron Paul Political Report, because we were quoting an unsigned article and Ron Paul disclaims authorship of his newsletters. I wished to ensure that we did not put words in Ron Paul’s mouth.
- “political propaganda”: We quote a lot of political propaganda. Many of King's most famous quotes are political propaganda.
- “not relevant”: Denuncations of Martin Luther King as a communist sympathizer are obviously relevant to King.
- “unsubstantiated”: Not only was it substantiated, it became moreso when I added a secondary source.
- You don’t like what this newsletter said? Neither do I. “I don’t like it” ≠ “vandalism”. ~ Robin Lionheart (talk) 01:48, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Thanks very much
- You're welcome. I don't think the Noodly One is opposed to evangelism, just sanctimony. ~ Robin Lionheart (talk) 16:09, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
discussion of "Further reading" sections
You are mentioned in a discussion of "Further reading" sections at the Village Pump, because you have commented on the matter elsewhere. Your insights or opinions are welcome in that centralized discussion. ~ Ningauble (talk) 18:49, 14 October 2013 (UTC)
Regarding Buber's views of Nietzsche
I'd like to discuss the removal of Buber's views of Nietzsche from the page. Buber is specifically criticizing Nietzshce's doctrine, and is only incidentally discussing greatness. What was the motivation for removing the quote? Thanks for your reply ~ User:peter1c
- I moved it because it was in a section for quotes about Nietzsche, and it wasn't about Nietzsche, it was about will to power. Not having a section on will to power, I settled on greatness. ~ Robin Lionheart (talk) 18:58, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
