2009-10-21 15:08:48 Hello there! This is a belated welcome, as I see that you've edited a bit before, but nobody gave you a proper welcome. In case you haven't already read it, I'd suggest you have a gander at Welcome to the Wiki. It will probably be useful to you at some point if you decide to become a more active member of our community.
As for the George thing, I don't think anyone was implying that George is a drunk. I think it was intended to counter the common criticism of the practice of giving money to homeless or otherwise economically disadvantaged people; namely that such people will just blow the money on alcohol and make their problems worse. Nevertheless, since it might give a false impression, I think you made the right decision to delete what you did.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask us. We'd be happy to answer them. Happy editing! —WilliamLewis
