 Recent edits to The Lord of the Rings Part 1
Do you have any evidence for your assertion that the poster with the "Part 1" subtitle was faked by Isaac Baranoff? Without evidence, it really seems like a personal attack on another editor. Furthermore, if it is a fake, it simply shouldn't be on the page, rather than being on the page with a deprecatory comment. Either way, if you want to make real contributions, please join the discussion on the article's talk page. —Josiah Rowe (talk • contribs) 17:07, 29 November 2005 (UTC)
Yes, I have evidence. I posted pics of those posters in another forum (without the "subtitle") in a discussion about this film. Isaac Baranoff(who never admits he can be wrong) later made that edit, and to prove his point, posted it here as evidence for his assertion... "its on Wikipedia so it must be true..." LOL Its not the first time he pulls a shitty stunt like that.

Hmm... that's pretty suggestive, but not completely conclusive. It's just possible that Baranoff found the "part 1" version somewhere else on line at that time (although the timing is quite suspicious) — since the "part 1" version has now been deleted, I can't check to see if it's got the tell-tale blurring where the green copyright has been removed. I apologize for doubting your intentions, which I disparaged only because Wikipedia's guidelines say that discussion about a page's content (in this case, the source and accuracy of an image) belong on the talk page rather than in the article itself. Thanks for joining the talk page discussion.
I don't want to get involved in a fight between Baranoff and the members of that Zappa board, but it does seem pretty clear that he's pushing a pro-Bakshi point of view. I'll keep an eye on him. —Josiah Rowe (talk • contribs) 18:36, 30 November 2005 (UTC)
