2011-08-18 09:57:14   It's very belated, but welcome to the Wiki! Thanks for all the gnoming! —TomGarberson

2011-09-02 18:09:53   Yikes. Sorry you got that kind of reaction to your review. I think most people understood your complaint. That was a very reasonable reply to an unreasonable attack, by the way. —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards

2011-09-06 18:56:25   Thanks Lori! Both my bunnies are rescues so I definitely know what you mean. One was kept in a small cage the first year of her life, the other was found dumped in the wild. I encourage you to write a letter to Ace as well. Maybe right now they think I'm the only person who cares about it. —MeggoWaffle

2011-11-06 10:55:26   Thanks for the updates on Fiona and your user page! Just so you know, you can link to any page on the wiki by putting just the title of the page in brackets and quotes, ["like this"]. Check out Help with Linking for more info. —JonathanLawton

2011-11-06 13:27:41   Thanks, Lori. We are in agreement. I'm glad you stand up to your friends since the animals can't. —MeggoWaffle

2011-12-10 21:47:34   The restrictions are based on the IRS (we're a non-profit, or technically, we're hosted on a non-profit). Technically, if it comes from the community, it's okay. That said, of course pushy market-speak is generally removed or at least toned way down. A helpful tip about deals — especially coming from somebody not benefiting from it — is fine, and usually sticks around. Word it right and it should be fine. —JabberWokky

2012-01-22 12:18:10   Hi. The full link is (Scroll down a bit for the example.) —BruceHansen

I appreciate the deference. I am happy with the page either way, s or no s. It's a very small thing in the long run and I don't want to make an issue out of nothing. Have a lovely day. -Lori

Yes, that particular "s" is a small matter, but I'm wondering about the rule. As you said "FAHC" is the subject and "is" is the verb. Doesn't the "that" phrase conplicate the sentence to include "comprises the Fil–Am at UC Davis." as part of the prepositional phrase? I don't know what the authority is, but this seems like a good source. Just calling to your attention; you don't have to reply. -bh

2012-02-23 15:13:49   If you are beating a dead horse, don't feel too bad. It's a stupid jerk horse that deserves to be beaten, dead or otherwise. —TomGarberson

2012-02-23 21:29:28   Awww, Fiona is so cute! —NickSchmalenberger

2012-02-24 11:11:34   To whome it may concern- We would really appreciate it if our page was left alone. It has nothing to do with you personally and the apartments are under new management and new ownership. The comments posted are irrelevant seeing as how they are from several years back. Please leave the page alone. Thank you —HLDAY

2012-03-15 17:33:21   Hahahaha! —TomGarberson

2012-03-15 18:28:10   *Gasp!* You mean go to the *source*?!?!? From the Wiki?!?! NEVER! ;^P

Although in this case, the allegation is that they say one thing and then charge for something different. Which is kind of hard to get somebody to admit to. —JabberWokky

2012-03-19 17:26:02   It's been said before, but thanks again for all of your gnoming! Great edits. —TomGarberson

2012-03-22 15:42:12   Thank you, I saw it. He's gone far beyond the wikis; he's posting stuff on other websites as well. —TomGarberson

2012-03-22 17:51:13   Tom asked me a couple hours ago to let it stand.

Is there a worse person to target with libel than an attorney who has free time? —JabberWokky

Two or more of the following comments comefrom the same IP address and may be the same person.

2012-04-26 20:16:30   <3 spamalamadingdong —TomGarberson

2012-04-28 20:45:17   Yes, that must be it. :-) —CovertProfessor

2012-04-28 21:01:13   Yeah, me either. Let's see if others notice now that we've spoken up. —CovertProfessor

2012-05-05 09:48:17   This may or may not be what you found, but it's a fun/useful page: IncludesTomGarberson

2012-05-05 09:51:34   Grouping the comments the way you did is the straightforward approach. I happen to like the sockpuppet include a lot, so I often use that... one sec, I'll demonstrate. —TomGarberson

2012-05-27 20:01:37   Congratulations! —CovertProfessor

  • Thank you!- Lori

2012-07-09 13:01:30   Thanks! I'll fix the entry to make that clearer. —CovertProfessor

2012-09-07 14:47:04   Hard to know when to back away sometimes.... —PeteB

2012-09-07 14:57:24   Probably a good call. —TomGarberson

Yep. —DonShor

Agreed-he wasn't going to give up on it. —PeteB

  • It's frustrating when someone ignores facts and demonizes others, but restraint seemed to be the best option. You can't have a logical conversation with someone like that, and it didn't seem to be worth anyone's time anymore. Especially over such a trivial (in my opinion) matter. Now we just lie in wait for the next taxi war! While simultaneously knocking on wood that we get some free time between trolls :)- Lori

2012-09-08 05:36:00   I'm about to attend a wedding (thus my lack of edits, as I can read on the road, but posting from my phone is a pain). It's kind of like cleaning a fish tank: It's important it be addressed, and doing it right keeps everything alive and healthy, but it'll be hard to remember any details of doing it in a few months.

So, thanks for helping keep the water clean (you and everybody else). —JabberWokky

2012-09-14 13:24:44   To be fair, the events are likely spacial in nature as well. —JabberWokky

  • Very true. I've never been much for spatial intelligence and reasoning, I can get lost in my hometown. I'm much more linguistically oriented, hence why I fix everyone's spelling :)

2012-09-20 20:42:50   Lori—gloriawilliamson is suspicious but it is a different IP. —PeteB

  • yeah, I saw that. Do you happen to know how to lock pages or is that some magic that only jabberwocky can do? I'm holding off on reverting until they get distracted and go to bed or something. Otherwise it's just a tennis match. Hopefully they took some Tylenol pm or something ;)- lori

2012-09-20 20:52:55   I don't know how to lock but I'm bored so I'll revert as much as need be until they give up or I go home. —PeteB

2012-10-26 08:57:24   I very much appreciate a good edit comment. Also, I ploinked zubin into the banned list. Five edits, all spam. —JabberWokky

2012-11-20 17:45:48   Lori—you might want to see Jab's comment on the email despamification on JackStrickland's page. —PeteB

2012-11-20 17:56:14   Lori I saw the comment about Las Vegas above. I'd be more than happy to help you frame up and start a Las Vegas Wiki if interested —PeteB

2012-11-21 15:45:07   also you need zero (0) computer skills to start / run / build a wikispot wiki

dive in! if it's too much ask Pete or JW or anyone on GnomeHQ —StevenDaubert

2012-11-22 11:22:50   I grilled and smoked it :) The recipe is from, the "ultimate smoked turkey." Turned out absolutely delicious. I still have a big bag of leftover turkey frozen, ready for another turkey pot pie sometime in the next week or two. —TomGarberson

2012-11-30 20:56:56   Lori—I have emailed Phil Neustrom to inquire about starting up the Vegas Wiki. —PeteB

2012-12-04 15:38:01   Maybe not a sockpuppet, Lori-they're different IP's. —PeteB

  • yeah, I saw that. I'm tired of that page in general.

2012-12-10 20:39:08   Yes!! Warning: lots of warnings to follow. —CovertProfessor

2012-12-21 07:58:00   AngelinaBrown is no más. —JabberWokky

2013-01-28 21:08:11   I guess I just missed it. I try not to leave spam lying around. It spoils immediately. —CovertProfessor

2013-02-23 09:17:56   I know how that goes. Hope you feel better soon. Also, good answer on the "edits" issue. I mean, really. —CovertProfessor

2013-02-23 10:51:20   Thank you for the support and health well wishes, TG and CP! —LoriOrf

  • Trololol? —tg
  • That was my suspicion from the beginning but I couldn't ignore a challenge to my intelligence. Peeps be trippin. -Lori

2013-03-05 19:25:27   Same could be done for Lost and FoundPeteB

  • That is true. I might work on that after I work on the roommate page tomorrow or next week. - lg

2013-03-19 17:10:11   Pls chime in on current situation because now statement is more of a personal attack especially the last part —ElizabethBarthel

  • sorry to hear that. I wanted the statement to be purely factual and not bashing. Will chime in on talk page. -Lori

2013-03-23 23:09:43   Thanks! Bekka is keeping good and busy, liking her job in Vacaville. I know it can be stressful at times, though. How are you liking the field? —TomGarberson

  • school was definitely fun. I love taking tests and getting good grades. I had my first day of externship at an actual vet today. It was a good time but definitely very fast paced and tiring. I hope to become accustomed to the pace and standing up for 8+ hours. - Lori

2013-03-25 21:19:25   Love the oxford! Can't believe I missed it... —Davidlm

2013-05-10 19:11:16   That particular mistake always amuses me. I'll often say "noon" because I figure if I say 12 PM people won't know what I'm talking about. —CovertProfessor

  • It seems to be a very common mistake. I've fixed it on a few pages over the years and many friends have asked me which is correct. I also try to say noon and midnight because it's just easier and leaves no room for misinterpretation. Or maybe the business is only open for one hour and I'm mistaken ;)
    • Heh... probably not. —cp

2013-06-20 14:09:20   Hi lori, not sure who to contact about this. We recently received a review that is a blatant lie on our page two days ago. Who can we have remove it? —AllegreApartments

  • Hello, there is generally a quick discussion on a talk page before deletions occur. Covertprofessor posted a comment that contains some info you might find helpful at the bottom of your user page, AllegreApartments, if you haven't already seen it. -Lori

2013-06-27 17:52:28   Thanks for keeping a gnomish eye on things —StevenDaubert

2013-09-05 18:43:24   Hi LoriOrf, thank you for taking a look at the Yogurtland comments section. I am trying to work within the guidelines of DavisWiki but was disheartened to see such a comment on the page myself. I have asked another Wiki user who goes by the name of CovertProfessor. They have made really great suggestions in the past and I am awaiting their advice on how to handle the situation as well. Some of the employees and a lot of the customers are from the cities this user has put down. Is there anything you recommend I do to resolve this issue? Your advice is much appreciated. Thank you for your support. —AjayHira

2013-09-06 11:09:18   Thank you Lori. I am new to the Davis Wiki. From your advice, I now have a good grasp of what to do if I have a concern. Take care. —AjayHira

2013-09-21 13:38:18   Very true indeed :) —PeteB

2013-09-23 17:57:55   Thank you for the thoughts Lori. Much appreciated. I miss her horribly-she was a phenomenal character. —PeteB

2013-10-01 18:10:19   No I did not however I've since moved on thank you for checking, and commenting out your comment —StevenDaubert

2013-10-28 08:17:33   Thank you for your help with the quick edit someone left on my comment. As much as I try, I wish only the best for Viking Residents. —rheascprent

2013-11-20 18:13:23   Fixed. In that case it wasn't a table, but a tip for future cases where you can't find the problem: un-"finished" bold and italics in tables can cause really strange problems later in the page. Thanks for pointing it out! —JabberWokky

2013-12-09 23:14:47   If you really want my thinking, I was saying that I hadn't checked that he was right; I was only fixing the links (since a new editor might get confused if they got a comment with broken markup). —JabberWokky

  • Looks like Lori's dry humor was a little too subtle here... I got a good chuckle, Lori!
    • D'oh, yes! Of course! I can only plea that it was late when I saw her comment, and part of my brain was clearly already asleep. -jw

* Dr. Baker understands me! It was a really terrible play on the phrase "for Pete's sake." - Lori

2014-01-04 13:12:30   good catch :D I had it spelled N-E-Wayze then toned down the snark a bit & plum forgot to drop that s >_>StevenDaubert

  • Thanks, I hoped that the correction wouldn't offend you and clearly it didn't. I had a friend in high school who would literally scream "anyways is not a word!" This conditioned me to twitch and brace for the scream when I hear someone say it. I'm a grammar enthusiast, but I try not to be overly strict on the wiki :) - ~ Lori

2014-01-05 13:35:50   Fun times. It's a pain to have happen, but it's always kind of nice to see how many people step up to protect the wiki. You rock. —JabberWokky

2014-01-24 16:20:56   Thanks for catching that spelling error. I'm glad you supported Taqueria Davis when you were able! —DougWalter

2014-02-16 01:14:12   much love for keeping an Orfy eye upon the roommates needed page —StevenDaubert

2014-04-18 22:18:20   Just sticking my head in to say Hi-hope all is well. We picked up a new Cavalier King Charles pup from Lucky Star Rescue. She's gorgeous!! —PeteB

2014-04-24 22:33:57   haha ;-) —ScottMeehleib

2014-08-19 08:10:54   I could well be missing something, but as celiac disease only affects the small intestine, unless they are eating the soap, gluten in it shouldn't affect anybody with the condition. A bit of Googling confirm that, even if gluten gives them a rash, it's when they eat it, not have it touch their skin (the rash is a reaction to ingested gluten). Of course, I'm certainly neither a doctor nor an expert on your friend's condition! I was just curious about the query. —JabberWokky

2014-08-21 13:52:47   no gluten in my soaps. —DagonJones

2014-08-22 13:00:16   Your friend might also want to look into Vanicream products. The FAQ indicates that their entire product inventory is gluten-free. —JudithTruman
