Enemies of the people


If you have a moment, would you look at Talk:Enemies of the People#Aftermath (and the history of Enemies of the People) please? I'm only a barrack-room lawyer so I'm not sure I'm explaining myself adequately. --John Maynard Friedman (talk) 22:49, 2 March 2017 (UTC)

Sixth periodic...


Hey Blue-Haired Lawyer :)

I have looked at updating the article and it looks as though there are very few things to add. I've searched Hansard and that has come up with nothing mentioning boundary changes for a few months

One suspects that the government is so busy with something or other that these boundary changes have been pushed to the long grass. If I find it, I'll let you know if someone doesn't get there before me. doktorb wordsdeeds 17:56, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

That would be my guess too, but the article could at least mention what the next step actually is, even if there's no chance of it happening at time soon. — Blue-Haired Lawyer t 02:00, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

Non-Aligned Movement (NAM)


Hi, please be a careful on the NAM page, the edit you approved was an anon IP vandal from the Philippines. --Goldsztajn (talk) 11:45, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

Where's the evidence that the anon ip editor is a vandal? — Blue-Haired Lawyer t 12:10, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
Repeatedly (7 no, make that 11 times) introducing edits which contradict the sources.--Goldsztajn (talk) 13:13, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

Looking for other site-UI-improvement scripts or gadgets


Hi Blue-Haired Lawyer. :) You might have seen the recent messages about the Desktop Improvements project that we're just starting to work on. One of the existing tools/inspirations we've listed is your "Wide Skin" userscript. I'm wondering if you know of any other gadgets/userscripts/etc that are not already listed at mw:Reading/Web/Desktop Improvements#Phase 1: Design ideas? I'm also hoping you might have a chance to look through the sub-pages such as mw:Reading/Web/Desktop Improvements/Wikimania Stockholm research report and share your feedback about the overall ideas and specific details. Either way, thank you for your efforts to help make the sites more usable. :) Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 21:39, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

appreciate your insight RE 1986 Irish Nationality Act


Holy Cup of Honor
Hello. Sorry to bug you. I barely know how to use Wikipedia and this is the only way I could figure out to contact you via private message. I read a debate you engaged in during the year 2008 regarding the Irish Nationality Act of 1986, The debate centred around the six month transitional provision that would allow registrants to gain retrospective to birth citizenship under the outgoing 1956 law. Long story short, my wife is applying for Irish citizenship and her father gained entry on the foreign birth register during that transition period. I'm looking for some legal insight regarding my wife's eligibility. The Internet is rife with conflicting info on the matter. I've hired an Irish solicitor to help with the case, but at this point I'm pretty sure I am more well-versed on the issue than he.

If you recall this issue and would be willing to chat with me, I'd be grateful for your insight. I'd be willing to pay a fee for meaningful guidance. My email addres is [email protected]

Sorry I know this is out of left field, but I'm looking for definitive answers on the subject that are hard to find.
