Hi SMarie,

Have you had a chance to read this? It is posted on the "talk" page of the California Proposition 7 (2008) article. It's okay with me if you don't want to talk over your edits or reversions (where you delete information that others have placed in the article) on the article's talk page; it's up to you how you want to be seen as an editor. But, this does lead to a situation where others will tend to start treating you the same way; namely, just deleting your contributions without discussion. Trying to get other contributors to see your point of view--why you think something should be deleted, for example, is the type of behavior that often leads to a better article.
