Well, in the short time I have been here I have had nothing but "static" for my efforts. This place makes me feel like I have entered a melodramatic soap-opera. I will leave my account open here so my uploaded images are here for everyones use and because some are already in use on Wikipedia. Hereafter, If someone vandalizes this page or posts warnings and other malicious content on this page which I apparently have no control over, it won't be me, Sixa369.
I am sick of apologizing! I have gone way beyond my usual patience level in dealing with things that have occurred from one simple, little mistake I made while ignoring the contributions I have made and my attempts at the touted "civility." The biggest issue is that I apparently have no say in whatever over-zealous power driven users may say on this page. And if I have no control over what will be indexed by search engines...that, friends, is just bad policy. So Wikimedia, you just might want to re-think the environment here and the policies in place. You have succeeded in making a experienced webmaster and web developer throw up his hands in despair.
So thats my story. In the words of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe", "so long and thanks for all the fish." I don't have the time or desire to walk on egg shells.
- I am sorry to see you go. I have considered it a few times myself. I decided to stay on and try to fix it from the inside though. I have had my fair share from petty, power-tripping users here as well as wikipedia. They do really need a shake up of many of these users and admin that abuse their powers as well. It probably will be a while yet though, or never happen at all. I will keep your user and talk page on my watchlist and delete any vandalism, etc. for you.--Canoe1967 (talk) 12:38, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

First, I did not know that your first post was a warning, I thought it was a message. I believed it was a issue that we understood and had moved past. Since this page is indexed by search engines I didn't realize that my own user page was beyond my ability to have some say in. And your reference to "vandalize" seems over the top and inappropriate. In the first few days I have been here I have done my best to help the whole project and have learned a lot quickly. I have added good material and done nothing inappropriate, just made a new users mistake in figuring out your your category protocol. I am offended at what you have done and apparently have no control about what shows up on my talk page...is that the story?
After trying so hard and contributing so much time, effort and material I am about to abandon my efforts. Your comment is really what is inappropriate and not "civility"
p.s. I made the link to said "search engines" and did not realize I wasn't logged in anymore. So the edit shows up as my IP address.
And THIS is what is showing up from my getting a third party (the help desk involved.)
