Hello, Tobby! Good morning! Or at least, I hope it's morning where you live! Anyway, the article Brazil is blocked due to a dispute over a content. I would like to know if you would be interested in giving your opinion to end it once and for all. In case you do not know much about the subject, I could explain it better to you. This is the link. All help is needed. Thank your very much and kind regards, --Lecen (talk) 11:38, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

May 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello. Regarding the recent revert you made to Lousiana: you may already know about them, but you might find Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace useful. After a revert, these can be placed on the user's talk page to let them know you considered their edit inappropriate, and also direct new users towards the sandbox. They can also be used to give a stern warning to a vandal when they've been previously warned. Thank you. Hi, thanks to add warnings on the vandal's Talk page whenever you revert, that normally helps to track the number of vandalous edits before ARV. Regards, kashmiri TALK 14:07, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Human sacrifice[edit]

Thuggee is not a Human sacrifice, nor Sati is any Human sacrifice, sati was done by the women for escaping from the islamic invaders, who used to rape women. And Thuggee cult only loot people, steal, and then kill, it wouldn't sacrifice itself, stop reverting. Discuss, before reverting, if you have any reason.

Recent edits regarding Poles/Slavs[edit]

Hey, I've noticed you are editing a few articles and making several new sections in talk pages regarding Nazis and Slavs. The reason a lot of your edits are being reverted is because they are already covered in the article or are not necessary to add into an article.

For example:

"The Nazis because of this declared Slavs to be untermenschen (subhumans)." is what is in the article but you wanted to edit "The Nazi ideology defined ethnic Poles as "sub-humans"." when Poles are Slavs and this is already mentioned in the article.

I do apologise for removing all of your edit regarding the role of sex and gender and have added it back in but tweaked it more accurately whilst using the source you did use.

This is nothing personal against you mate but we both are trying to achieve accurate reliable Wikipedia articles and overlapping stuff is not the way to go about it. If you want to discuss Nazis/Slavs discussion then we can on the relative talk pages. Once again, I have nothing against you. :)!--Windows66 (talk) 12:07, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

On ROsinsky image, Impalement...[edit]

Believe me, I've searched all Internet to find some verification that this is an actual story from the 20th century (as main editor, I've been extremely restictive on adding 20th-21th century material), but I haven't found a single source of any "Captain Rosinsky". That's why I've previously deleted the image, but I won't get into an edit war with you, but I would be EXTREMELY grateful if you find an additional source which enhances the probability of it being real from being just, for example, a fake image, or a still photo from a movie. I know your edit is in good faith, but in contrast of MOST stories on Impalement, that of Captain Rosinsky has precious few additional verifications to it.Arildnordby (talk) 22:08, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

To make my point specific: You are not the only editor wanting this image within Impalement, just the most recent. I have RESIGNED from deleting it, I'm not going to remove it, but YET, I will be grateful if you can find some independent evidence about it depicting a REAL event.Arildnordby (talk) 22:29, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

WW II[edit]

Hello, if you have time please take a look at my edit from 09:54, 9 February 2014‎. I added a short paragraph on Nazi atrocities during the German Invasion, and added a picture of a civilian execution in the USSR invasion section. This edit was quickly reverted and labeled "Edit Warring". I was also asked to proved references… and when I agreed to do so, Nick-D dropped a label of "undue weight". I hate to say this, but I have a feeling the admin is trying to restrict some of this info being published on the page. Please advise. --Factor01 (talk) 11:29, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi Factor01, discuss points, compromise, and try to reach consensus. WP:Consensus. There's WP:dispute resolution venues where you can try to get help. I understand your frustration regarding this issue. -- Tobby72 (talk) 12:04, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Edit warring at List of conspiracy theories[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at List of conspiracy theories shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war; that means that you are repeatedly changing content back to how you think it should be, when you have seen that other editors disagree. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See the bold, revert, discuss cycle for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

You'll need a strong consensus to restore that content. It may be controversial, but it's not a conspiracy theory. Many of the allegations have been confirmed, especially the main thesis. Russia did interfere in the election to help Trump, and numerous Trump associates were holding secret meetings with Russians, which they lied about. Yes, certain allegations are unconfirmed, but they are not disproven. -- BullRangifer (talk) 19:17, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

We are not talking about interference. We are talking about alleged collusion between Russian operatives and Trump campaign. Robert Mueller charged no Americans with election conspiracy crimes. Take a look at this video: -- Tobby72 (talk) 20:45, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
That is one of the unproven allegations. The Mueller Report documents lots of collusion (not a legal term, so he didn't focus on that), without using the word, but he did not prove "conspiracy" (a legal term) beyond a doubt, and didn't even try to do it because that would mean he'd have to follow through with attempting to prosecute a sitting president, so he didn't even go there. If the obstruction (destruction of evidence, refusals to testify, use of encrypted devices, leaks of police strategies and knowledge directly to the WH by Nunes and others, etc.) hadn't been so successful, it would have been much easier.
An analogy might help you understand what happened. Let's say that a baseball team is secretly practicing with their rival team to throw the final game. Lots of gambling money is at stake, so they are arranging a planned outcome. It is later proven that they played/practiced together many times and that they lied about doing it. Deny, deny, deny. That was collusion. But the prosecutor is only allowed to investigate matters covered by the legal term "conspiracy", and that requires they prove there was a binding written or oral agreement, but the prosecutor was never able to find such a document, so they could only report that they could not prove "conspiracy".
That's what happened. There were over a hundred secret meetings between Trump campaign members (and other people representing him) with Russians, many of whom were known Russian intelligence agents who were under surveillance by at least eight European allied intelligence agencies. These agencies reported their findings to the CIA and FBI. Note that Trump people were not illegally surveilled, but their contacts and conversations were incidentally recorded because they were in contact with the wrong people. Then they lied about it. They denied such meetings, even though proven.
Lots of secret collusion occurred, but no "conspiracy" was proven, and such a formal agreement likely never existed. It's much harder to prove something like that, as the participants are very careful to cover their tracks and not leave evidence laying around. Trump speaks in code anyway, and has done so for many years. He doesn't have to "order" something done, he just mentions it and it's clear to his aides that his wishes are to be treated like orders, but he always maintains plausible deniability. Trump's people met with Russians many times and were recorded saying and planning things that really alarmed our allies. That was collusion, and the Mueller Report documents quite a bit of it. -- BullRangifer (talk) 21:55, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
"meetings between Trump campaign members (and other people representing him) with Russians." I know the Americans have been indoctrinated to fear not only the Russian state, but "the Russians" as a whole. Such a hysterical fear of another nation is called xenophobia. Nothing new here. You also wrote: "Let's say that a baseball team is secretly practicing with their rival team to throw the final game." That sounds like the alleged collusion between the Clinton campaign and Russia over the so-called Steele Dossier, or Bill Clinton's Chinagate, or Israel's collusion with both Democrats and the Republicans. I don't like Trump and I don't care about the long-term feud between Democrats and Republicans, but above all I hate double standards and xenophobic, conspiracy theory-ridden Cold War hysteria. Still thanks for taking the time to explain your position. -- Tobby72 (talk) 10:39, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
@Tobby72: Why are you using years old references? There are current ones. You appear to be cherry-picking. X1\ (talk) 19:39, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
