In addition, I wish to highlight this editors offensive tone:

  1. "Reversing censorship by Islamic supremacist idiot"
  2. "Reverted vandalism and defamation by Islamic supremacist idiot"
  3. "rv Islamic supremacist disruption and censorship of facts due to Islamic anti-Semitic bigotry"
  4. "typical idiotic Wikipedia dumbass with Aspergers reverting as vandalism something he does not understand"
  5. "fuck off"

The last was its response to a polite request to stop attacking editors.

This IP is editing from a confirmed proxy server, but not apparently from an open proxy. They have been editing since the beginning of this month, which is why I chose a month as the duration. I agree that the edits are completely disruptive. A longer block would be warranted if they return and edit in the same vein.--Bbb23 (talk) 14:51, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

Gsfelipe94 has been continuously reverting the number of substitutes on 2013 FIFA Club World Cup Final. I did point out to him that he was breaking the 3RR rule though he appeared to be unaware of it. I wasn't going to report him because of his inexperience but the fact he later reverted again which led to me filing this report. The C of E God Save the Queen! (talk) 12:48, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

I shared my opinion on the talk page and there were people that agreed at first. I reverted 2 edits before, yes. I wasn't aware of that rule and then I followed the procedure used for international tournaments, without reverting the edit. I added new info and then uploaded like that, while we were still discussing. I don't see an edit war here as it is still a discussion. I believe this report was something 100% rushed. Gsfelipe94 (talk) 15:39, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
It is considered a revert even if you dont hit revert-button but keeps inserting the same material and doing this after a warning should result in a block. QED237 (talk) 16:07, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
Your opinion has some interest behind it. I'm sure it would please you to see me blocked. Therefore, I see that we were still discussing the subject and I was following standard procedures. When I didn't do that in other situations, this guy over here complained like the world was ending and know he does the opposite of what I was doing. It's interesting. Well, I believe that we should keep it as a learning experience and I'm sure every part - and that includes everyone that gets involved later - will try to discuss it completely before moving the page from updates to updates. Gsfelipe94 (talk) 16:59, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting wait.svg Warned. Gsfelipe94, you violated WP:3RR. It was pointed out to you before you did it. Your discussion here and on the article talk page is not optimal. Nonetheless, I'm letting you off with a warning because you haven't restored your version of the article, a fair amount of time has elapsed, and you profess not to understand the policy. I suggest you read the policy carefully. If you edit-war again, even if you don't breach WP:3RR, you risk being blocked without notice.--Bbb23 (talk) 17:55, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

--Mallexikon (talk) 10:02, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

There has been no crossing of the 3RR bright line, and no profanity here. This is the second complaint needing WP:Boomerang treatment in the last few days from this user. --Roxy the dog (resonate) 10:41, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
Dougweller, hold on. Since when is "You've got to be f****g kidding!" no profanity? Since when is accusation of vandalism regarding a good faith edit acceptable? Why is Brangifers pattern of trying to intimidate other editors (like User:Herbxue at Talk:Traditional Chinese medicine quite recently [20]) acceptable?
And why is Roxy, who is usually applauding Brangifer (like here), the first to comment on this 3RR report, just as he was the first to comment on my recent AN/I report? And why was he so successful in preventing any feedback on that AN/I report? --Mallexikon (talk) 12:13, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
I'm the first to comment because of good fortune, and as regards preventing any feedback on that AN/I report, I'm not so vain as to think that I had anything to do with it at all. The reason was probably something to do with the unjustified complaint in the first place, much like this one. --Roxy the dog (resonate) 13:24, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
This board only deals with editwarring, and your report should not have been made as the editor had only made 3 reverts before you warned him and then stopped. Note that it isn't warn and report, it's warn, if the editor makes another editor then report, even if the warning was after 4 or more reverts unless of course the editor clearly knows about 3RR. As for the rest of your complaints, ANI is as you should know the venue for them, although you won't get an editor blocked for simple profanity. Roxy has no power to prevent feedback, and you had feedback after Roxy posted from 2 other editors.[21] Dougweller (talk) 13:22, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

Why am I not surprised? I have to leave home for a few hours and come back to find this bogus report. Sheesh! There's some serious deception going on here. Mallexikon stated on the article talk page that they were going to delete a whole list of properly sourced content (even their edit summary noted that when they did it!). I noticed that comment about 8 minutes later and wrote a response, which took a few minutes. In the mean time, only one minute after they made the statement, they actually did it! That takes gall. We know that making any potentially controversial edit, especially deleting large amounts of properly sourced and very old content, should be discussed very thoroughly first.

I immediately reverted them with a BRD warning. They didn't heed the warning and continued to delete. (That's edit warring.) I then restored the status quo version with another warning and also warned them on their talk page. To clearly label the section, I did use the words Edit warring/vandalism in my heading to catch Mallexikon's attention. They asked me: "Are you accusing me of vandalism?" I replied that I was not (yet they then lie above, knowing my answer): "Only if you continue. Then it would be vandalism and edit warring. Anyone who saw such an edit would be justified in thinking it was vandalism, but I know your thinking and had seen your comment, so I knew your intention was not to vandalize, even if the effect was the same. It's also a question of motive Face-wink.svg, which is why I AGF (see my first comment above)."

We have a clear case of deception, lack of competence, and fringe POV pushing. The lack of competence in this case is fourfold:

  1. failure to understand when to report edit warring;
  2. gaming the system by doing it;
  3. failure to follow BRD after being warned;
  4. misuse and failure to understand MEDRS by seeking to apply MEDRS to content which is not covered by MEDRS at Acupuncture, and failing to apply it properly to content that is covered at German acupuncture trials. This is a fringe POV pusher's very selective misuse of MEDRS to seek to delete mainstream, skeptical, opposing POV from Acupuncture, and to include primary scientific research (a violation of MEDRS) which seems to weakly support acupuncture (a fringe POV) in the German acupuncture trials article.

Boomerang does apply here, and with consequences. Mallexikon is no longer new here and knows better. They are obviously here to push a fringe POV, delete or water down properly sourced mainstream POV, and do it deceptively. This editor needs to be sanctioned and topic banned from all alternative medicine topics. They are WP:NOTHERE. This has been going on for far too long. -- Brangifer (talk) 18:17, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

BR I think you go way too far here. Mallexikon is a responsible editor.Herbxue (talk) 18:41, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
And this new discussion belongs elsewhere, maybe ANI or AN. Having it here really won't have any effect. Dougweller (talk) 18:51, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

Endless edit warring against a number of users to include ORish stuff into political party infoboxes and to remove information already sourced (e.g. 3 RR violated also here: [33], [34], [35], [36]). Pan Miacek and his crime-fighting dog (woof!) 14:26, 23 December 2013 (UTC) Diff of attempt to resolve dispute on article talk page: [37]

Comments:

@Estlandia: His case against me doesn't make much sense... For instance, he wrote "If you really think party programmes are to be preferred to third party sources, you have no idea what WP:NPOV should look like.-".. But clearly, if you look at these examples; this (the Socialist Party) and this (the Party for Democracy) they clearly use official sources.. The former infobox on the Party for Democracy page did not make sense, for instance, how can a party be both social democratic, libertarian and liberalist? A reader who just wants to see which party is a member of the new coalition government of Chile (who won the election), will have no clue what kind of party Party for Democracy is. Secondly, its a member of Socialist International and Progressive Alliance, social democratic internationals.. So to simply it, I removed the rest and let Social democracy stand there alone. Another example, the Socialist Party officially opposes capitalism (and seeks to create a socialist society), but is clearly a social democratic party, so I made two sections;
Claimed:
Social democracy
Official:
Democratic socialism, Marxism and anti-capitalism (because the party principles and statutes says this).
--TIAYN (talk) 14:31, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
You are very disruptive because you keep removing sources just based on your gut feeling like here [38] (I haven't edited the page). Pan Miacek and his crime-fighting dog (woof!) 14:33, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
My edits at the Social Democratic Radical Party is again a simplification, but (I'l admit, I did not add sources).. But a party which proclaims adherence to socialism in its party constitution cannot by definition by centrist, and again, a party is either centre-left or centre-right unless a party explicitly states in the centre of national politics. This party is explicitly socialist, is a member of the centre-left Socialist International and espouses a centre-left ideology, social democracy... But again, the ideologies in the infobox are again directly taken from the party constitution, because the party explicitly states it supports humanism and radicalism , so this is a simplification measure, since its main ideology is Social Democracy and this is why the party has social democratic in its name and supports officially a vision of socialism... This is called common sense. --TIAYN (talk) 14:44, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
I should note that even AFTER having been reported here, the user continues edit warring, as evident from this revert [39]. Pan Miacek and his crime-fighting dog (woof!) 14:48, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
This will be my last argument (on the Party for Democracy page), what do you think readers most easily understand, version A) or version B)?
A)
Progressivism, left-libertarianism, social liberalism, libertarianism and reformism
B)
Social democracy
  • Having only social democracy is best (or Progressivism) for that matter. Libertarianism doesn't make sense, first since you can't be a social democrat, social liberal (who support certain state-ownership in the economy) and libertarianism who wants to abolish the state.. The party constitution clearly states that the party is only libertarian in the sense that it supports and defends democratic rights, but not libertarian in any other sense of the word. Therefore having libertarian there complicates matters more than it simplifies, and since the article doesn't have an ideology section, the article is unable to explain the readers how and why the party views itself as such. Therefore, for simplicity, calling it social democratic is first of all true, its a member of the Socialist International and Progressive Alliance, but also easy enough to understand. The infobox should pertain basic information, and not be too complex. Having five different ideologies complicate things (secondly, not all readers know what all or any of these ideologies mean).. Making it easier for the readers is my key goal. --TIAYN (talk) 15:04, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Comments:

The editor has added inappropriate maintenance tags in violation of WP:WAR. The editor has been warned in this article and another concerning warring and appears to understand the concept and limitations set by 3R.(See [63]) The maintenance tags are inappropriate and that has been pointed out to the editor; however, she fails to grasp the concept of secondary support. Her continued actions are making it increasingly difficult to WP:AGF. I would encourage the reviewing admin to review the editor's other edits for some insight into this editor's actions. reddogsix (talk) 12:19, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Note. Reddogsix, this looks like almost a private feud between you and Morganmissen. Although Morgan has edit-warred, they have not violated WP:3RR. The first edit was an addition. That was followed by four reverts, but the last revert was well outside of the 24-hour window. This spat between the two of you has spilled over into the Jessica Grose article and its AfD. I don't see how any of this is helping the project. Perhaps you should just seek a consensus about the tags. I realize that two editors favor removal of the tags, and only Morgan wants the tags, but one of the two authors is the creator of the article and might be a smidgen biased.--Bbb23 (talk) 14:31, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
Hi there. Apologies in advance for this poor use of resources. I'm not sure what Reddogsix means by "inappropriate." I cited and quoted multiple Wikipedia guidelines explaining the maintenance tags on the Talk page before Reddogsix reverted them without coherent clarification. I asked Reddogsix nicely not to revert the tags and mentioned warring several times, but this editor reverted them twice with an explanation contradictory to guidelines. I submitted an edit war warning to Reddoxsix. I received notification of this report in return. This seems to be personal for Reddogsix, as these reverts are in direct contradiction to exact maintenance tags Reddogsix put on an article I created a few days ago. Here is a very specific example:
Search article Jessica Grose's history for the word "primary" to see where Reddogsix repeatedly adds maintenance tags insisting "There are multiple primary sources in the article" (referring to media interviews), then, despite improvements, nominates the article for deletion.

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Jessica_Grose&action=history

Now, see in article Neetzan Zimmerman's history where Reddogsix insists that this subject's media interviews (and subject's own LinkedIn profile!) are acceptable secondary sources, and the article should not have any maintenance.

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Neetzan_Zimmerman&action=history

I used the tags in the precise way--to the letter, including the in-line comments--that this editor did in the Jessica Grose article. As an aside, I'm new to Wikipedia and Reddogsix has made the past week a living nightmare. I feel extremely uncomfortable here, especially because I use my name to edit, and this editor makes reference to my gender (this editor may have an issue with female subjects and editors, here's another example from today on Kathy_Clark_(American_author): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Reddogsix#you_could_go_a_little_easier_on_her ) While I appreciate Reddogsix's contribution to Wikipedia, I feel that this experience is closer to harassment than collaboration. Morganmissen (talk) 14:44, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for clarifying that I have not violated WP:3RR. Like I said, I am new to Wikipedia and this is very confusing, especially because I did not receive a warning, and was not the one to revert edits. I'd really just like Reddogsix to leave me alone. Morganmissen (talk) 14:50, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
Morganmissen, first, you should take a look at WP:TLDR. Your posts here and in other places are verbose. Second, I agree with User:Milowent that you "seem well versed in wikipedia lingo despite your very few edits". Here you plead that you are "new" but at the AfD you said, "Wikipedia guidelines are easy to understand, easy to find, and easy to follow!" I, a relatively experienced user, would never say such a thing except in jest. Yet, you toss around policies and guidelines as if you've been editing here for years. Third, you've provided no evidence of gender bias above. The links you provide are WP:COATRACKy. Don't accuse other editors of things like that unless you have solid evidence to back it up. Finally, Reddogsix may indeed leave you alone, but that's not what this is about. You're just as persistent, if not more so, than he is, and you have reverted far more times than he has. You have also failed to follow WP:BRD. You added the tags. Once an editor objected, you should not have reinserted them absent a consensus. None of this so far is blockable, but I think you should pull back a little.--Bbb23 (talk) 15:45, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
I apologized above for this waste administrators' time, and I apologize again. Not sure what to make of being accused of being an expert Wikipedia user, but feel free to search my history and IP address if there is any doubt that I'm not new. I'm just trying to be a good editor. I didn't know about WP:BRD or I'd have surely followed it here. Regarding verbosity, I completely agree with you. I've just had be to extremely specific and cite Wikipedia guidelines in every interaction with Reddogsix for reasons like this; as even in doing so, this editor reported me without warning when no violation had occurred. I'd imagine anyone in my position would do the same. Morganmissen (talk) 20:16, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

This is the text that is being brought into question:
In the first known usage as slang, WWII German soldiers were known to call the Dutch "cheeseheads".[1]

The term "cheesehead" was first used in the 1969 book Papillon to describe the jury that sentenced Papillon to life in prison. [2][3]

Reply by mike on talk page: 23:14, 22 December 2013
Note: copied discussion from Mike's page to talk page. Talk:Cheesehead

I don't see how a highly respected, well circulated and repeatedly published work of fiction could be considered "non-reliable" as a source for the etymology of a word. The wikipedia article on etymology states "Etymological theory recognizes that words originate through a limited number of basic mechanisms, the most important of which are borrowing (i.e., the adoption of "loanwords" from other languages)". This is clearly the case here, where the original usage was derogatory use of the word by German's in WWII, followed by the use in Papillon in 1970 as a disparaging comment about the judges, then widespread use in the early 80's by sports fans first as a derogatory word, followed by being adopted as a official nickname. This is well sourced, non-original research of the etymology of the word cheesehead, and I feel it deserves inclusion. I would like to bring it to other administrators review (being that mike *is* an administrator) BEFORE this slides into WP:3RR. Timmccloud (talk) 21:06, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting oppose.svg Declined. I see this as a content dispute, and it's incumbent on the editors not to let a content dispute mushroom into an edit war. I'm not convinced there was a consensus in 2009, but, regardless, the most recent addition of the material was by Timmccloud, and per WP:BRD, when Orangemike reverted, it should have gone to the talk page intead of being reverted by Tim and then a mini edit war.--Bbb23 (talk) 21:21, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Is outright removing valid citations from an article because they don't cite the sentence they are positioned directly after, despite repeated explanations that they cite the entire paragraph. ViperSnake151  Talk  04:54, 25 December 2013 (UTC)


This editor insists on using 5 IC for one sentence when 4 of them have nothing at all to do with it. See my edit summaries and my comment at his talk page.(If they support something in the paragraph, move them to the correct sentence. BTW this is the first time Viper mentions that. ) In fact his history at this article shows a clear history of WP:OWN.. I haven't violated 3RR. Viper on the other hand comes here when his edits are pointless except as an action to keep exerting his control this page....William 05:00, 25 December 2013 (UTC)
Again, that was an entire paragraph, not just one sentence. However, I just repositioned the refs so they're not all at the end, implying they're only citing that one statement. Additionally, I am not showing ownership of the article; one who shows ownership usually doesn't work with others on the talk page, ensuring that this article doesn't violate WP:HOWTO. But still, you violated WP:3RR. ViperSnake151  Talk  05:04, 25 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting oppose.svg Declined. William is correct in that he did not violate 3RR as he reverted only three times. Technically, ViperSnake violated 3RR, even though his first revert, a series of consecutive edits between 23:20 and 23:26, was not about the dispute. Apparently, ViperSnake has at least partly complied with William's request in his last edit to the article. If that doesn't satisfy William, I suggest that he or ViperSnake move the citations to the "correct" locations. This was a needless dispute.--Bbb23 (talk) 09:00, 25 December 2013 (UTC)

Lihaas seems to be aggressively edit warring with several users on the page at once. His recent talk page comments are confrontational and uncooperative. I tried my best to approach this in a calm manner and WP:AGF, but his response was so far beyond reason that a resolution without administrative action seems hopeless.

The dispute involves claims that the entirety of the "international news media" is framing the South Sudanese conflict in the wrong way. I deleted this comment and he has been restoring it.
