title correction...[edit]

I noticed a page you seem to be creating or linking to was misnamed "User/Miszatomic|Themes" when I believe what you meant to type was probably "User:Miszatomic/Themes|Themes." Just making a note of this as I once again prepare to leave. I hope to do a bit more on the project within the next day or two, but have numerous things keeping me busy. ~ Kalki·· 20:38, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

I see you already created it while I typed the above — you might want to correct the link you made though. ~ Kalki·· 20:41, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Bias vs. Prejudice[edit]

I just got in after having been gone much of the day, and I noticed you had just redirected Bias into Prejudice. While the concepts are definitely related, I believe bias is a more general term which can include irrational or rationalized forms of prejudices and assumptions, as well as dispositions which are not limited to the "pre-judgment" of prejudice. I know that they are often used as if they were synonyms, but there are definitely significant distinctions in some uses of the terms. While the Bias page was so small it is not a big deal as yet, and I am not going to revert the change, I would prefer the pages eventually both be separate articles, probably with some overlap, and might work on both in coming months. I am too busy with too many other things to do much with either of them right now. ~ Kalki·· 22:54, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

To make a summary of some of the ways I myself tend to distinctly use the words, I would say that all prejudicial assessments are not always entirely wrong, nor all biases improper or unjust, but such qualities are very common in both aspects of human attitudes, and both, when left unexamined or unchallenged can be very dangerous, and full of errors conducive to many forms of further errors and even profound forms of evil. To transcend attachment to either is usually a mark of wisdom, even as tolerating the ignorance and confusions of those who cannot yet do so is often prudent, in efforts to help them and others to eventually do so. ~ Kalki·· 23:04, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

merges and protection[edit]

Hello Misz. Things are calmer now, no? Just a reminder: when moving (merging) material from one page into another, it's important to make that clear in the edit summary, to make the history of edits list all contributors (or make them traceable). Something simple like "moved from [[page name]]" should be enough. Okay, one more thing: maybe you'll want to change the protection level of your talk page (remove it) so IPs can edit it again.

My talk page[edit]

I'm curious why my talk page was deleted and why I am not allowed to have one. I honestly do not know whether I had anything in my talk page, but please clarify what is going on. Wpollard (talk) 12:49, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

    • Page was created by a blocked vandal. Miszatomic (talk) 13:02, 14 March 2015
    • I was informed of what happened and what you had to do to fix this. Thank you for doing this. I just looked through my edits and found that I indeed never created my own talk page. I do not edit in Wikiquote much, but I visit here occasionally. Wpollard (talk) 21:59, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Delete vandalized user page[edit]

Hi Miszatomic, can you delete my vandalized user page, please? Thanks in advance.--Syum90 (talk) 11:59, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Done, Miszatomic (talk) 12:02, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
