Diff of edit warring / 3RR warning: [6]

The editor has previously been blocked for edit warring, and has recently had an indef block removed - so they are well aware of wikipedia rules/blocking procedures/3RR

I have tried to resolve this issue on the user in question's talk page - and requested they get involved in the talk page, however there was no response on their talk page, my talk page or the article talk page - the only response was continued reverts.

Comments:


I have linked to the previous version of the article, however the user's reverts are different reverts - that are removing different information. As far as I am aware different reverts are still considered to be edit warring when made in the same 24hour period on the same article. カンチョーSennen Goroshi ! (talk) 12:42, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

If you take a look at the article's history, you'll find his edits revolve around maligning independence activist Kim Gu for whatever reasons he can come up with that day. Persistent behavior dispite obvious protest from other users leads me to believe he has some sort of chip on his shoulder. Now I've dismissed his warning: "Why not go to the talk page and gain some consensus, if you feel strongly about this?". How convient of him to tell me to reach a consensus when he's the one who keeps adding new (fringe) materials and edits such as this. As for the report itself, I'm kind of confused. Is he planning me take me down with himself? Because he clearly went over his 3rd (4th... 5th...) revert. Akkies (talk) 12:57, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

I added new material, I did not revert. If you consider my edits to be adding fringe material then take it up on the talk page, instead of reverting me. I suggested before I made this report that you discuss it on the article talk page, but you did not respond apart from continuing to revert. I would have preferred to discuss this on a talk page, but you seem to have been hell bent on reverting anything and everything that I tried to contribute towards the article in question. Four reverts in less than 24hours, says it all. カンチョーSennen Goroshi ! (talk) 14:11, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Sure, it's just another way to continue your ongoing campaign. Refer to your first edit, which is indentical to what you're putting in right now. You seem very commited to this, even using blog sources. Or if that fails, deliberately misinterpreting articles to push such an extremist (unique) viewpoint. The edits are directionless, seemingly slanderous. Don't think you've created some sort of loophole. Akkies (talk) 14:44, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Aaaand Sennen has just reverted Aocduio's edit to his version on Kim Gu. Akkies (talk) 14:50, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

The fact that I reverted someone on that article, after not touching it for nearly 30 hours is somehow comparable to your 4 reverts in 24 hours? Don't try to change this ANI report into something that it is not - if you wish to discuss the article - go to the article talk page, if you wish to complain about my actions, make a report against me or contact me directly - if you wish to explain why you think you should be allowed to revert four times within a 24hr period - do it here. I am done wasting my time here. カンチョーSennen Goroshi ! (talk) 15:38, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

That's not for me to decide. And my replies are appropriate. All very relevent, needed to defend my actions from deceptive report like this. In fact, your report was unknown to me until EdJohnston gave me the notice. Pretty sly Sennen. Akkies (talk) 16:00, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Result - Article protected two weeks. This is a long-running dispute about what evaluation (favorable or unfavorable) should be given to Kim Gu, who appears to be a sort of a controversial founding father, and served as President of Korea in 1927. Direct quotes from reliable sources ought to do the job, but people seem to be having some trouble finding sources in English. Protection would require editors to work things out on the talk page. If agreement is reached, ask for unprotection. EdJohnston (talk) 20:23, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Diff of edit warring / 3RR warning: [link] Note: Upon discovery that my talk content had been edited a second time, I tried to protect my OWN talk content by reverting, a second time, the edit, then proceeded to try to make the recommended Wikipedia notations on the "talk" page. The rapidity of subsequent reverts to incorporate changes to my talk content were simply too rapid to allow me to observe 3RR cautions to the involved editors.

Diff of attempt to resolve dispute on article talk page: 1. [27] 2. [28] 3. [29]

Comments:

The obvious question that will come to bear is why I was unwilling to allow my content to be edited in the first place. The reasons are twofold...and I'm not sure which is more important. First, the idea that any editor can arbitrarily edit the content another editor's contribution to a "talk" environment discussion strikes me as bordering on Wikipedia obscenity. Secondly and, perhaps more importantly, my content was assembled to present the views of all contributor's to the RS/N AT THE TIME THE ARCHIVAL SUMMARY WAS APPLIED. User:Blaxthos had contributed NOTHING to either RS/N at that point and could not have impacted the construction of the "archive summary" in ANY manner.

In contention within the talk environment is the validity of the "archival summary" that was applied when ARCHIVED, not when User:Blaxthos arrived into the talk "discussion". As I type, a fourth "editor" is now editing my originally submitted content.

I respectfully request that the original content I submitted to the "talk" page be restored and, somehow, protected from what I feel is overt vandalism of my content. JakeInJoisey (talk) 04:03, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

On edit: As User:Dlabtot has now seen fit to edit my original content as well, I have appended his/her username to the petition and will notify. It has also been brought to my attention that copyright considerations may have some bearing on this issue. I will defer further comment on the particulars until such time as all editor's have been afforded adequate time for consideration and input. JakeInJoisey (talk) 13:24, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

In my opinion a reverse block should be in order, I mean, Jake has made 5 recent reverts on this talk page which I'm not sure if any of them meet the exceptions to 3RR as he sometimes calls it "vandalism": [30], [31], [32], [33], [34] with the 5th one leading to a threat. Minimac (talk) 04:17, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

This is an absolute joke of a report. 3 editors making 4 edits cannot violate 3RR; however, one can, and that is precisely what Jake has done. I call for a block on him, to show him that he needs to stop making something out of nothing.
If you are going to include a table of editor opinions on sources, you have no right to deny the addition of other editor opinions on the grounds that you may not like it. You were the one who blew this up into something it should never have become. WP:GETOVERIT. –Turian (talk) 11:45, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

JakeinJoisey has been single-handedly fillibustering RSN and it's accompanied talk page for a month at this point. He has engaged in edit-warring to prevent others from archiving closed discussions, from adding their opinions to charts of opinions and has been just generally unwilling to lose. Whoever closes this report should certainly consider what steps they could best take to prevent JiJ from further disrupting wikipedia - I suggest a temporary ban from RSN and it's talk page, and a longer ban on linking to WorldNetDaily anywhere on wikipedia. Just a thought! Hipocrite (talk) 12:26, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

I support the above recommendations. Jake, as every edit page has stated: If you do not want your writing to be edited, used, and redistributed at will, then do not submit it here. You have no copyright. We did not alter the meaning of your content, especially since what was edited was not prose. Jake needs to be blocked to stop his disruptive behavior. –Turian (talk) 13:30, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Diff of attempt to resolve dispute on article talk page: [47]

Comments:
FleetCommand has been violating the Wikipedia etiquette in several different ways:

  1. Deceptive tactics, masquerading reverts as regular edits
  2. Unwillingness to discuss the issue: despite being asked three times ([48], [49], [50]) to address the points explained on the talk page, he ignores them, never replies on the talk page
  3. Giving invalid explanation in his reverts: FleetCommand has been repeatedly explained (both in the edit summaries and on the talk page) that the Weasel words guideline is a guideline, not a policy, and most importantly, by definition, refers to attribution (a direct quote from the definition: "On Wikipedia, the term refers to evasive, ambiguous or misleading attribution."), that is, the verifiability and NPOV policies. Therefore, by definition, his argument that the expression "The player can play files in a variety of formats" violates the weasel words guideline is invalid, as it does not concern attribution at all (we can certainly argue about the wording, content, style, we can ask whether it is vague etc., and I am open to discussion, but it would be a completely different discussion—the original version simply, by definition, does not violate the Wikipedia weasel words guideline, and therefore all his reverts are invalid, as they give a bogus reason in the explanation, and knowingly, because FleetCommand has been repeatedly reminded of it, that's the problem). This is explained in more detail on the talk page. FleetCommand has never been able to disprove this obvious and easily provable fact. Instead of replying, he just continues to revert the edits with the same copy&paste "reason", and when he's warned about edit warring, he masks the revert as an unrelated edit.

Please note that my original version (link number 1) was already a compromise from me—because we could not agree on the particular wording (listing supported formats), I simply changed it to a general expression "a variety of formats", which is an uncontroversial fact that nobody can disagree with. I considered it a reasonable compromise for both sides (he did not like my original version, and I did not like his original version, so I simply offered a neutral version). FleetCommand, as usual, simply reverted my neutral version to his original version, and as always without any discussion. This again shows that the user is unwilling to cooperate in any way.

This behaviour is unacceptable and goes against several Wikipedia guidelines such as Etiquette ("Do not ignore questions - If another disagrees with your edit, provide good reasons why you think that it is appropriate" etc.), Disruptive editing (A disruptive editor: "repeatedly disregards other editors' questions or requests for explanations concerning edits or objections to edits; repeatedly disregards other editors' explanations for their edits."), Edit warring (reverting instead discussing, gaming the system via intentional deceit, spreading the reverts just over 24 hours to escape the 3RR, and by knowingly misinterpreting the guidelines). Good faith cannot be assumed anymore. And because FleetCommand has already said, when he unsuccessfully complained to an administrator (the admin said FleetCommand was wrong), that he wanted to "rip me apart", I have to suppose FleetCommand's real motivation is not improving the article. Given all his malicious and deceptive actions, I suppose he is indeed driven by his personal desire to... well, rip me apart.—J. M. (talk) 08:56, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

User:Mosmof reported by 68.173.122.113 (Result: Semi)[edit]

Mosmof a user who has commented on this page extensively is adding serious accusations against something which accured nearly 2 years ago, and was debated ad naseum in a debate he lost. There have been no charges nor anything of the like. Torossian's firm was recently named one of the largest in the US but this is whitewashed. Help revert to original content. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.173.122.113 (talk) 01:38, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

  • I'm guessing this is not a serious 3RR accusation, but I should comment. Both the aformentioned article and 5W Public Relations, a mildly controversial firm owned by the former, were heavily edited by its staffer(s) using multiple IDs (Wikipedia:Requests for checkuser/Case/Emetman makes for a good Sunday reading), generally reworking content to be more favorable, to the point and removing information that's uncomfortable for the firm and its clients, while making un-WP:AGF accusations against anyone who disagrees using specious reasoning that ignore Wikipedia policies. My understanding is that I'm an anti-semite who works for the Lower East Side B.I.D. Judging by the tone, type of edits and language, my guess is that 65.112.21.194 (talk · contribs) and 68.173.122.113 (talk · contribs) is a reemergence of the above, but I don't think they're being overly disruptive yet. Mosmof (talk) 16:52, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Mosmof is using his continued agenda to slander 5W. There is no reworking other than readding information which was there prior to vandalism. Unaware why the firm being named one of the 15 largest in US shouldnt be present nor why INC magazine wouldnt be not present. Also it should be noted this fight began regarding an issue Mosmof posted in contrast to items he posted years ago. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.173.122.113 (talk) 19:55, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

You are referring to "heavy editing" nearly 2 years ago by people who are no longer employed by the company, right ? What is the justification for removing language which says they are 1 of the biggest firms in the US ? Why would that be the case ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.173.122.113 (talk) 20:00, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

This is probably the wrong forum for continuing content-related discussion, but I should point out that the IP editor wants to insert more detailed information about the firm in the Torossian article. My point is, and has been, that the article should contain information that's about the person and some basic information about the firm, but anything about how awesome the company is should be in the company article, and there's a convenient {{main}} link will help any curious readers. -Mosmof (talk) 20:09, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
I was actually on the way to the IPs page when I saw this, the IP is currently in violation of 3RR on the page. Since he brought this here, it seems like he's knowingly trying to get Mosmof blocked. Dayewalker (talk) 20:14, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

It has to be added here because Mosmof ignores direct messages. If the company info suffices, then why does Joe Francis remain ? He's noteable bc of the company he owns. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Babasalichai (talkcontribs) 20:29, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

I believe both of them should be blocked. They seemed to have tried to discuss it on the talk page, while simultaneously reverting each other. –Turian (talk) 20:37, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
You can see me ignoring direct messages here, here and here. Honestly, I haven't kept count of my reverts, and I acknowledge, I may have been revert-happy because of the history of editors associated with the IPs. If I need to be blocked, then I'm okay with that. --Mosmof (talk) 20:41, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Result - Semiprotected. This article has been the subject of so much abuse in the past that we shouldn't need to think long and hard before taking admin action. Anyone connected with Mr. Torossian who wants to make the article more favorable to him would be well-advised to cooperate with our WP:COI policy. Creating a registered account would be a good first step, and impeccable behavior would do a lot to earn respect here. The apparent return to promotional editing is not charming and does not give us much reason to extend good faith. Listening for consensus on the talk page before making controversial changes could be a winning strategy. EdJohnston (talk) 03:54, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Mosmof again has refused to this page to yet again make edits ? Did not this forum recommend he stay away ? Why did he revisit again ? Can he finally be banned from touching this page ? Please just look @ the facts. You cant say that the fact that Torossian's firm is one of largest isnt relevant. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Babasalichai (talkcontribs) 09:16, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

There are not even four reverts, and it does not apply to reverting vandalism. The C of E even acknowledges on his userpage that Northern Ireland does not have a flag, since it does not.

The alternative is that your next block is your last, as far as I'm concerned. We cannot and will not tolerate this single-minded disruption." Despite being told many times, The C of E persists in disruptively adding unofficial and sectarian flags, even though he knows Northern Ireland does not have a flag.

Under "Claims that the UN is antisemitic", 23:54, March 26, 2010 Emmanuelm added first version of paragraph about EAFORD statement. Zero000 deleted it with valid criticism (this delete is not counted in the list below). Emmanuelm rephrased the text and inserted it 22:13, March 28, 2010 as such:

In March 2010, the statement of an NGO, re-printed as UNHRC publication A/HRC/13/NGO/23, contains accusation of organ theft. This accusation was deemed antisemitic by the Canadian Jewish Congress, "a take-off of the historical calumny of the Jewish blood libel" [1]

The argument is spelled out in the talk page. Emmanuelm (talk) 02:12, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

This is a content dispute that should be at the NPOV noticeboard, not here. Along with several other editors, I believe Emmanuelm's text is inappropriate, mostly on grounds of lack of balance and weight. The background is that the Human Rights Council receives large numbers of submissions from NGOs and publishes them in the agendas for its meetings. For the meeting ended recently, there were 139 such submissions [99]. All of them were published with a disclaimer stating that they are being presented unedited according to the rules of procedure. (Here (click on the "E" of A/HRC/13/NGO/111) is an example of a submission by the pro-Israeli NGO UN Watch making charges against various Islamic countries; see the disclaimers on the front page.) One of the submissions this time was from a little-known NGO called EAFORD, which included a charge that Israel harvests body organs of Palestinians. This is an obnoxious charge, and if someone wants to write an article on EAFORD it should be mentioned there. However, Emmanuelm wants it to be on this page in a form that many readers will take as meaning that the UN itself made charges about body part harvesting, and shows no interest in mentioning the disclaimer published with it. EAFORD's charge was not raised at the HRC meeting at all, according to the on-line video minutes, and as far as anyone has claimed no UN organ has ever made any sort of statement in support of EAFORD's charge. Also, the quote from CJC that Emmanuelm wants to include is a (justified) attack on the EAFORD claim; why does it belong in an article on the UN? The only real claim against the UN in the given source (a newspaper polemic) is an argument that they should censor submissions. Maybe that issue is one that deserves coverage in Wikipedia, but much more material than this minor incident would be needed. Zerotalk 04:17, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
Thank you Zero for mentioning UN Watch. [Hillel] Neuer told The Jerusalem Post that the UNHRC in the past has asked UN Watch to change the language in documents that UN Watch plans to submit, including in this session where UNHRC asked UN Watch to edit their words with reference to Iran and Libya. If UN Watch can’t use the word “regime” when talking about Iran, then one would think that a “blood libel” would be unacceptable, Neuer said.[2]. This is precisely the nature of the accusation against the UN in the National Post article. The antisemitism & CJC part is there merely to explain why they want the UN to censors this kind of text; antisemitism is condemned by several UNGA resolutions.
Now, I sense that you are changing your mind on the acceptability of this item in the article. The spirit of WP is to edit rather than delete. You might want to insert your version in the paragraph called "Claims that the UN ignores antisemitism", along with other documented incidents. You see, the article already contains "more material than this minor incident".
As for where this edit war should be arbitrated, I am no expert. You may move it where you wish. Emmanuelm (talk) 02:28, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Article is part of the ARBMAC restriction. --Tadijataking 09:14, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
Tadija you are not allowed to edit Kosovo-related articles for 2 weeks[100] or to make any edits related to them. [101] [102] [103] This report is a violation of your restriction. For the record this is not a revert-war case as kedadi was reverting a user who was pov-pushing and now retired shouting and insulting admins. [104][105]. Also if you read the 3RR article you'll see that the point of 3RR is to prevent damage to encyclopedia not to punish users, now there is no disruption because Shanticm has retired and therefore no need for any action is needed.--— ZjarriRrethues — talk 09:29, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

No. "he may not edit pages in article-space related to the Balkans". I agreed on that, so i know. --Tadijataking 09:38, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Tadija is absolutely correct. He is allowed to edit talk and project pages and whatever else, as long as he does not edit the articles themselves. I've been watching him to make sure he sticks to the restriction, and he has, which is a credit to him. --Deskana (talk) 09:43, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Comments:
Description: Repeated page blanking. All the original reverts are within 40 minutes. As can be seen from the dates this case is a bit old. This is because in hopes that this person will reconsider and give up edit warring on this article, he was not reported earlier. Unfortunately this has not happened and he continues his blanking repeatedly ever since, just a few additional examples [111] [112] [113] [114] [115]. It is notable that this blanking leaves over 40 from the over 100 sources in the article, and most of the content is deleted as well. This mass removal of sourced information is extremely disruptive in addition to the original 4 reverts within 40 minutes, so I would ask that an admin look at the situation here and stop the disruption. It is also clear that there is no consensus for this move and ignoring the BRD cycle he continues to blank the article. It is also notable that Knorrepoes's recent contribution history shows, he has not a single edit to any talk page or user talk page recently it's all reverts.

I have tried to work with this editor via edit summaries, on the talk page, and on his talk page. He has ignored the substance of my arguments and accused me of breaking some policy [133]. Further, when I warned him about his 3 revert violation his response was to (erroneously) tag me with the same 3rr template [134] despite the fact that I have not violated the 3rr rule. I am more than willing to work with this editor, but he has to make an effort to actually resolve our differences via talk, rather than simply charging ahead with edits he knows will be contentious.

Comments:This editor continues to add the name of a non-notable individual, which was removed per WP:BLPNAME. That he waited to revert again when the 24 hours passed does not take away his insistence that the name should be inserted or violating 3RR in spirit if not fact. I've tried talking to him, was met with personal attacks and aspersions and he persists in reverting the content even while "discussing". I posted a notice to WP:BLP/N about this.


Wildhartlivie has reverted my initial edit that was properly sourced multiple times and I have, at length, sought to explain the accuracy issues involved on the talk page, a discussion which I also initiated. He has now taken to reverted my sourcing of unsourced material in the article as well. I would encourage anyone so interested to review his unique perspectives on wikipedia concepts here. [144] His objection to naming an individual at the center of a highly publicized controversy with the subject of the article makes absolutely no sense where the individual's name appears in countless media articles online. The fact that he's named everywhere. [145][146] [147] [148] [149] [150] [151] doesn't make an impression on Wildhartlivie. His misinterpretation of the requirement for notability I have explained several times without success. The problem is one of ownership where editors attempt to control all content. This is much more likely to happen with celebrity articles. Again, I would encourage anyone to review the talk page. Eudemis (talk) 03:52, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

My "misinterpretation" of notability is not a misinterpretation at all. It is factually based in WP:BLPNAME. This is a non-notable individual who is only notable for one event - getting hit in the head with a telephone by Russell Crowe. He has no notability in regard to inclusion on Wikipedia. This editor has repeatedly personally attacked me, citing "ownership", which could be turned around regarding this issue. The majority of my edits on that page are reversions of vandalism and he has bothered to include the number of edits I've made to that article in an edit summary as well [152]. This report is not about content issues, it is about wilfully engaging in reversion in a manner that violates WP:3RR. In addition, the editor has engaged in inappropriate canvassing regarding this issue: see It is entirely improper to try and raise support by canvassing in this manner [153] [154] [155] [156] and the ad hominem attacks he makes on me in those posts.

Hold on a minute here! You reverted a whole bunch of edits without posting to my talk page or the discussion, and then when I contacted you to discuss any issues directly, you go ahead and report me. Why didn't you just say the issue was that the Green Line statement was erased from the lead!? Seems like you want me off this page for some reason. However, I have the right to edit this page in a clean, sourced fashion, as I've done. Also, why do you have the exclusive right to give edit warring warnings? I can warn people as well, and I'm completely offended that you would cite me for that.

I've gone ahead and put the Green Line information you so desperately want in the lead. Next time, be specific about the issue or just add it in, as opposed to reverting it to less developed version of the article. And don't report people without really trying to work out specific issues. This is not cool. Accipio Mitis Frux (talk) 14:37, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

That is not what I did. I retained many of your changes to the body, some of them were inappropriate so I reverted those. I also reverted your changes to lead where you removed the most notable aspect of this place and instead inserted some recent news. And reverting 5 times is "not cool". nableezy - 14:41, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
What are you talking about? I didn't revert five times! And I deliberately inserted what I felt are the "most notable" aspects of this page in the lead. If you felt that your green line issues were more notable, you could have added them to the introduction, and we could have avoided this whole war. That's how you improve a page--you add and expand to sourced contributions. If you are an experience wikipedian you should know that reverting a large number of sourced edits is going to cause a stir. You feel that something should stay in the lead? Fine. This is not the way to go about it though. Accipio Mitis Frux (talk) 15:00, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
