Never mind, I just checked the talk page and the
looks like he's fully aware of the situation.
Seems to me like SPUI has finally found another editor who is as
unshakeable in his certainties as SPUI himself :-)
Er? Firstly, my statement didn't indicate "unshakeability" - I said it
_looks_ like he's aware of the situation. I'm usually quite careful to
weasel-word my assertions in discussions like this (for example, I just
changed "always" to "usually" in this line in case there exists a
where I failed to do so :)
And secondly, it looks pretty clear to me. On the talk page I find
paragraphs from the IP in question such as:
SPUI, please stop removing the reference by USDOT
regarding their contract list for various toll facilities. Federal contracts are very
specific and often quite detailed (even more so than many laws), and if anybody knows the
details of a contract with the Federal government, it's the Federal government.
Period. Because the contract report was so specific regarding SR 913/Rickenbacker
Causeway, any disputes you have with the reference you should take up with USDOT, and any
further removal of the references will be taken up with admins... at least. Your removals
are bordering on bad faith, to put it diplomatically. Remember how "wrong"
B.Wind and I were about the former SR 5A?
SPUI wrote "Assuming that's not misleading,
it could apply to the road between US 1 and the toll booths, which is named Rickenbacker
Causeway." Wrong - the road north of the toll booths is not Rickenbacker Causeway but
Southwest 26th Road, and it has been that way since before the original Rickenbacker
Causeway was opened in 1947. In fact the Rickenbacker Causeway is the southward
continuation of SW 26th Road.
In addition, SPUI's assertion of "Basically, anything not by FDOT calling it SR
913 is making generalizations, and cannot be relied on to get the extent right" is
interesting in itself as it declares his bias without giving references indicating that
there is no other reliable source of SR information, discounting both the local
governments, the Highway Patrol, the Federal government, or anything else that he refuses
to consider. This is not a case of objective editing but one of hero worship, and he is
not willing to concede that either A) there is no definitive FDOT source stating the
location of the termini, or B) that, despite being a collection of human beings, FDOT
makes the occasional error, too (and the errors have been well documented, including those
by SPUI on his former site). In this case, he'd rather press his argument about his
interpretation of the evidence instead of resolving the issue. The only dispute regarding
this is in SPUI's mind. I shall gladly del
ete this paragraph upon evidence to
Which certainly doesn't seem like stuff that would be written by an
editor who doesn't even know how to check the edit summaries and has no
idea why his edits keep vanishing.
