Hi Mary, I found you via Ro Thorpe's talk page and what curious what your comment meant. Just wanted to tell you that when I read your comment about being a cat owner, at first I read "cat-owned." That seemed cute enough that I had to write to you to suggest the change in your profile, if you like it.

E-mailed articles

Hi, Mary. Thanks for volunteering to monitor and handle the "e-mailed articles" mailing list. While the discussion was going on in the forums, I was also talking with Anthony Sebastian about it, because he had been involved in this project earlier. In the case of the specific author whose query got this whole topic started (Soleiman Abdollahee), Anthony volunteered to go ahead and look at the author's e-mailed articles and deal with them. So if it's OK with you, maybe we should let him handle these, and then you (and anybody else who is watching the mailing list, if anybody else is) can take care of subsequent ones. I just wanted to make sure that the two of you wouldn't be duplicating effort. Thanks again. Bruce M. Tindall 09:39, 28 April 2011 (CDT)

After reading this morning's forum posts I realize my contributions are not wanted or valued at Citizendium; therefore my moderatorship lacks merit too. I have requested my moderatorship be cancelled. I am sorry for the difficulties this may have caused. Mary Ash 14:17, 28 April 2011 (CDT)
I have no idea where this is coming from. Send me a link to that forum thread that seems to have bothered you. D. Matt Innis 20:32, 28 April 2011 (CDT)

Hope to email with you

Mary, would it be possible for you to email me offline? If you are open to discussing it, I really hate to see you leave the CZ project and wonder if we might email each other. My email is pgpalmer A T gmail.Pat Palmer 14:34, 30 April 2011 (CDT)

Catalog begun

Hi Mary

The staff info at your article on Aviation Week has not been deleted; I have used it to begin a catalog at: Aviation Week and Space Technology/Catalogs

We may or may not want to review this as the cluster progresses.

Some answers and thanks for the welcome

Greetings, Mary Ash. The photographs are all imported from Wikipedia Commons, and I have added all the data available in the separate page of every single file. The names of the author missing are so because that information was not provided by the Wikimedia Commons page of the files. I swear that I uploaded the articles with all my good faith.

I'm the author of almost all the text in the article. I'm quite used to write in the wiki style now, so I prepared the whole article in a .doc file, and then I copied and pasted it here. Thanks for asking.--Pablo Martín Zampini 04:33, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

According to Argentine Law Nº 11,723 in Article 34, all photos become "public domain" after 20 years of its first publication. I was careful seeing that all photos uploaded as PD complied with this law. --Pablo Martín Zampini 05:31, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Authorization to reuse photos from Argentina's presidency website

Of course photographs of Charly García, Soledad Pastorutti, Pérez & Curuchet, and Cristina Fernández with Soda Stereo are not Public Domain; they are too recent. On Argentina's Presidency official website, here's the link to the page that explains that a user of the German Wikipedia (Benutzer:ALE!) wrote to the webmaster asking for permission to use the pictures there. In accordance with an email discussion with the Secretaría de Medios Andrea Caldararo (logged in the Wikimedia permissions archives as OTRS ticket|859219|2007042610015988, all content at is available under the Creative Commons attribution license (template:cc-by-2.0). This license requires that the source be cited on all copies of the content. I think this is enough to prove that all photos uploaded from that source could be used with no problems here. Concerning Juan Manuel Fangio's photograph, -which is in PD for it was taken in 1952- I found it in a collection of photographs published by Diario Clarín of Argentina, titled "Photograph in Argentine History", where most of them provided data on the photographer and the source/collection where it was taken from. This photo appears with the label Autor sin identificar (Unidentifed author) and cites the same source I did, Museum "Juan Manuel Fangio". So it is evident that the author of that photo got lost in time; it appears to be no way to know who he/she was. --Pablo Martín Zampini 13:55, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

Belgian shepherd dog

Hello. Sorry for the trouble. I thought I was being helpful in terms of wording and grammar. I've been looking around different people's works recently. At least for me it helps to collaborate with others and have their input on what I'm working on, etc. Feel free to read and edit "my" articles anytime :D (Chunbum Park 20:51, 9 August 2011 (UTC))

Malinois doggies

Do they come from Mali? Hard to believe.... Hayford Peirce 02:14, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

Malinois are from Belgium. They were originally bred to herd sheep. My Malinois mix came from our local animal shelter where she was called a "miniature shepherd". I later found out she was a Malinois. I'm more of a cat person but I LOVED Nikki. She was an excellent kid's dog and she loved her kitties. Sadly, she was only with me for 7 years before dying from brain cancer. Back when I had a personal web page I used to have a Nikki web page with the Rainbow Bridge poem. I also included all kinds of pet information including the need for spaying and neutering. Have you ever owned a Malinois? Just curious...Mary Ash 05:19, 10 August 2011 (UTC)
Nope, I've had German shepherds, akitas, pugs, boxers, dachunds, a Belgian frize I think, and maybe some other, but never a Malinois. Had never even heard of them until now.... Hayford Peirce 18:07, 10 August 2011 (UTC)
German Shepherds and Malinois have similar characteristics. Both are protective of their families and both may have a prey drive. Malinois are smaller and they have rounded "cat feet" versus the larger foot German Shepherd. Most Malinois excel at herding and agility. I don't know if GSD have similar characteristics. In my married life I have had three dogs: a poodle mix; a Malinois mix and a German Shepherd mix. The GSD mix was my last dog and I adopted her when she was about 15 years old. She lived with us for almost two years before crossing the Rainbow Bridge. I've always had both cats and dogs in residence even with the high prey dogs. Never had a problem either. Loved chatting about dogs. Mary Ash 01:08, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Your account

Mary, if you are resigning from Citizendium, please email the constabulary with your wishes. Otherwise, you'll need some sort of bio on your user page. D. Matt Innis 17:12, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Welcome back!

Hi Mary, it looks as if you're back -- welcome back, and enjoy yourself! Hayford Peirce 02:39, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

Welcome back! It's really good to see someone who's left return. (Chunbum Park 12:13, 26 November 2011 (UTC))
I second the "welcome back"!Pat Palmer 23:09, 27 November 2011 (UTC)
I thought it went without saying, but I don't want to be left out here. Welcome back, and I look forward to reading your latest contributions. Ro Thorpe 02:45, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Your cat

How awful. My condolences. Ro Thorpe 22:08, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Mary, condolences about your sweet cat. We love our 2 old tomcats; to us, they are people. I dread the day if/when they go. Hugs.Pat Palmer 21:10, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Lemma definitions

Thanks for the help, Mary! Hayford Peirce 21:49, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Onion the dog

Hi Mary, I was *thinking* about you in terms of this article, but hadn't yet gotten around to contacting you. Please do what you can to cut out some of the chaff. I myself want to rename the article Onion (dog). And have the first sentence read something like "Onion the dog is a phrase used by some (?) people (?) to identity a dog in Oregon that killed a 1-y/o child in 2012 (?) and that has generated a movement to save the dog from being euthanized by the local authorities." Or something along those lines. I will, in fact, Move the article right now. Thanks for the help! Hayford Peirce 22:28, 11 June 2012 (UTC)


Mary, I just saw you on Facebook, but your account was such that I could not message you there. Glad to find you again! Would you please email me at pgpalmer AT if you see this? Hoping you are well.Pat Palmer (talk) 18:48, 27 August 2020 (UTC)
