User clearly knows they're reverting way beyond their third and has decided to do so anyway. NorthBySouthBaranof (talk) 17:57, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

User seems to be trying really hard to remove information announced yesterday while citing the Recentism essay. In this case, the information doesn't seem to qualify for said essay and since essay is not policy is rendered nil. Zero Serenity (talk - contributions) 18:02, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
This would fall under the Gamergate Sanctions, would it not? --MASEM (t) 18:06, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
My gut is telling me no. Zero Serenity (talk - contributions) 18:10, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
I think my edit summaries speak for themselves. Tarc, Zero Serenity and NorthBySouthBaranof didn't address my multiple pledges for discussion and instead blindly reverted my attempt to improve the article without providing a reason. That's a clear symptom of WP:OWN, and I know I was exceding the 3RR, but I was simply trying to find a peaceful solution.
Of course, I want nothing to do with the "gamergate clusterf*ck mentality" and atm I think I have nothing more to add about this incident. Heinerj (talk) 18:23, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Comments:

User was politely asked to self-revert; they simply reverted that request. The user has declined to engage in the talk page discussion related to the material in question and has simply engaged in stale revert-warring with no evidence they intend to stop. User is well aware of the 3RR. NorthBySouthBaranof (talk) 04:58, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

I don't read your drivel anymore, especially templates, so I didn't see any request. You may revert if you wish, all of them were different topics that you've edit warred for months and it wasn't my intention to edit war. It's off my watchlist and I am not disruptive. You've dragged my name through offsite bullshit so knock it off. --DHeyward (talk) 05:05, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Your accusation about something "offsite" is patently false; please refrain from making unsupported and untrue personal attacks about other editors. I have never mentioned any other editor in any offsite context. NorthBySouthBaranof (talk) 05:06, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
Stop lying. [8]. BTW, I've reverted my edit above but you've never apologized for the above unfounded accusation. [insults redacted]. --DHeyward (talk) 05:21, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
Your accusation strongly suggested that I had mentioned you in some offsite forum, which is not true. More to the point, I'm not sure what that has to do with this issue. You have self-reverted, however, and I appreciate that. NorthBySouthBaranof (talk) 05:33, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
[insults redacted] --DHeyward (talk) 05:42, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting wait.svg Warned @DHeyward: That self-revert is the only reason I'm not blocking you right now. Your annoyance at a two-month old comment does not excuse you from your obligation to use the talk page to discuss contentious edits.

They are controversial edits, and the editor that added them knows that. They need to be discussed. And days old edits don't count as "edit warring", the statute of limitations is over with. Koala15 (talk) 05:23, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
"The editor that knows that" is me, and no the edits are not controversial. One is an additional genre which is attached with a reference that confirms the genre by the artist himself in an interview with Billboard magazine's website. Another is information on a bonus track that is exclusive to the vinyl edition of the album, which is attached with a reference to the record label's merchandise website. There is a copy of the tracklist in the reference that confirms the change, yet just like the edit before the user above continues to delete this referenced information with no explanation. Additionally, the user continues to change the opening line of the article to claim the album is the "second studio album" and claiming the debut was "The Golden Alien" which was an independently released album with zero record label involvement, while the page Riff Raff (rapper) already displays the difference between the studio albums and independent albums. He's also deleting a referenced excerpt from the page that mentions the music video released for the album's second single. But apparently music videos are controversial in his eyes. This user has continuously damaged the Neon Icon page and has given zero explanation for any of his repeated changes. Funkatastic (talk) 18:45, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
An artists calling his album "EDM", does not mean that is the case. Your gonna need a better source than that. "The Golden Alien" was clearly his debut regardless of what he/anyone else says. And my bad, for deleting the music video sources, that was an accident. Koala15 (talk) 20:11, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Diff of attempt to resolve dispute on article talk page: [52] Attempt to resolve dispute on user's talk page: [53]

Comments:I see that this editor is no stranger to this noticeboard, and was previously blocked for edit warring in another article[54] and warned three times[55][56][57] for edit warring in still others. His behavior in this article has been nothing short of maddening, removing amply sourced content and edit-warring over it. I would like to build this article into Good Article and perhaps even Feature Article status, as the source material is ample (including a biography of Myerson that I own) but it is impossible if this editor makes nonsensical edits such as [58] and edit wars over them. Myerson, the subject of a page one obit in the New York Times today, is a prominent person who is the subject of two three books, but her highly-trafficked article will remain stuck in "start" status if this tendentious conduct is not curbed. Coretheapple (talk) 22:42, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
The wall-o-text below bears me out. Coretheapple (talk) 22:53, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Note that he has continued to edit war after the filing of this case, such as by this edit insisting upon calling a housing project "Yiddish housing," and this edit that, without discussion, removed an essential element of Myerson's story and placing it in incorrect chronological order in the wrong section. Coretheapple (talk) 03:09, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Another revert since this report was made, edit summary "unexplained change by IP." [59], marked as a "good-faith edit." The fact that it was "unexplained" or "by an IP" is not a valid reason to violate 3RR. Coretheapple (talk) 12:27, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
  • And now this revert, edit-warring with User:Alanscottwalker. [60]. Coretheapple (talk) 22:21, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Very one-sided report. Look at the reporting editor's edits and reversions. All he's been doing is adding back in wording he prefers. Wording, I might add, that is extremely close and only slightly paraphrased from the references he's added. For a better idea of both sides of the discussion (which I started at the article talk page, by the way), I will re-post what I've already said there (winkelvi used the same behaviour in the constitucion article [[61]]:

  • RE: Claim in article that she was a subject of anti-semitism and the Jewish community saw her MA win as a "seminal event". The attached reference says nothing of the kind. Anti-semitism is mentioned, but not in relation to Myerson's win. As well, nothing in the article gives proof that Jewish Americans felt her win was "seminal" nor that her win was affirmation. All the obit says is, "To many Jews...the title seemed an affirmation of some sort of acceptance in America." Note the words "To many Jews" and "seemed". Both qualify for WP:WEASEL status, and neither statements are supported by references. There are no sources attached to either statement that supports these obviously POV, emotional, and hyperbolic claims as being real or anything other than original research and personal opinion by the obit writer. What evidence do we have that the sponsors were actually anti-semitic? None. Both of these claims need to be removed as, even after a BLP article subject dies, WP:BLP policies still apply to the article for up to two years followig the article subject's death.
  • RE: The Ha'Eretz reference used to support "anti-semitism": it is also POV. This would need to be supported by a non-biased source. There is no specificity in the article that gives context, just the claim of anti-semitism. Further, in reading throughly both the obituary and the Ha'Eretz article, you have taken WAY too much of both, paraphrased only slightly, and are bordering on plagiarism and WP:COPYVIO with the prose and content you keep reverting back in from those articles. For reasons of borderline plagirism and copyvio along with the reasons per BLP guidelines stated above, I am also removing the content you keep putting back in.
  • RE: Comments about my editing at the article on Jimbo's page... Better to actually discuss than run to Jimbo's talk page and complain about, how did you put it? Oh, yeah: "a singularly difficult editor, which raises one of a number of issues I've seen discussed in the past year or so but never acted on. I.e., how to handle bad editors." (see here: [62]) That, in the vein of WP:NPA and WP:AGF, along with your edit warring behavior, plagiarism and copyvios... Doesn't look to good at all.
  • RE: Editor's claim that I am using POV to edit the article... My feelings have nothing to do with the article content. In fact, I personally lean toward the anti-semitism claim. But my feelings have nothing to do with fact. The feelings of the writers have nothing to do with fact. Making claims of anti-semitism 70 years after he fact with no real evidence of actual anti-semitism is as stupid and POV as the claims of those saying anyone who didn't vote for Barack Obama did so because they are anti-Black. And yes, you did lift content from those articles. It's easy to see. So no, not ridiculous at all.

Personally, I'd rather see this worked out at the article talk page (which is why I started discussion there yesterday before the reporting editor, in fact). Consensus building is a good thing, even a dispute noticeboard would be fine with me if the other editor doesn't wish to actually discuss and work this out. In light of ignoring BLP guidelines, his copyvios, close-paraphrasing lifted from references, and need to see the article only reflect his content and wording version while trying to take the article single-handedly to FA or GA status (as he admits above), I don't guess he will be willing to discuss properly and work things out. Hence, his reason for coming here instead, I suppose. -- WV 23:47, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

I find interesting the reporting editor keeps adding diffs to what he sees as edit warring on my part, but is failing to add diffs of his reverts to my edits. Personally, it seems to me that while we aren't agreeing with all of each others' edits, at this point we're just editing the article together and the article is improving little-by-little. That's cooperative editing, isn't it? -- WV 03:21, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

I've not been reverting, you have. You're in excess of 3RR and have been working your will in the article almost entirely by edit warring. You used the revert tool to remove the word "cooperative" from the name of the housing project in which Myerson lived as a girl, without discussion, even though you were already well over 3RR[63]. Your edit made something accurate into something inaccurate, but I didn't revert. This edit[64], insisting upon calling that housing project a "Yiddish housing project," without discussion, even after it was objected to, is revert-warring, and was not reverted by myself. The article currently contains this extremely questionable language, as the result of the edit warring that you've been engaged in. That's how you've edit-warred over one minor aspect of the article! It is, as I said, maddening. If that is your idea of "cooperative editing" you are mistaken. Coretheapple (talk) 03:41, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment: "Yiddish housing cooperative" is certainly not a standard term. It's the exact opposite, in fact. Although its meaning is clear to those who know this bit of NYC/Jewish history, it certainly does not belong in an encyclopedia. Frankly, the Bess Myerson article should merely link to Shalom Aleichem Houses. (I remark that this is a redirect I just created, but if we have Amalgamated Housing Cooperative, we can have this too.)
  • One of Winkelvi's edit summaries justified a reversion on the grounds that obituaries should not be relied in except for basic facts. He was rebuked by admins in this forum a few months ago when justifying some of his edit warring in Helen Hooven Santmyer for just this kind of second-guessing about obituary contents. That what's asserted from the source is POV, as Winkelvi claims, is irrelevant. NPOV stands for "Neutral" POV, not "Non" POV. If it seems to be stated in a hyperbolic manner, then phrasing it as "Time said X" should be acceptable. Choor monster (talk) 15:09, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Apple says, "I've not been reverting, you have." You can't, in all honesty, be serious. -- WV 15:51, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Comments and adding link to Bess Myerson talk page ([65]) I ask that anyone reading this report please look at the comments contained there. I have repeatedly tried to work with and reason with Coretheapple at the article talk page. His choice has been to make several personal attacks, even after I have asked him to stop doing so and instead talk only about bettering the article. Along with wrongly referring to himself and another editor trading talk page comments in the middle of the night over a span of an hour or so "consensus", his attacks and rude comments to me have been peppered with statements such as, "you have not read and/or comprehended"; "Please stop wasting everybody's time"; "we are adding relevant details, and this is clearly relevant, amply sourced, above dispute--except by you. Again, why are you wasting everybody's time"; "why are you wasting everybody's time"; "This discussion is utterly pointless...Please stop wasting people's time.". When I first went to Core's talk page early on when I was confused by one of his edit summaries, he answered rudely there as well: "And haven't you anything better to do than waste people's time? (page/section link here [66]). Yesterday, at Jimmy Wales' talk page he referred to me in the following manner: "a singularly difficult editor, which raises one of a number of issues I've seen discussed in the past year or so but never acted on. I.e., how to handle bad editors." (see diff: [67]). I have tried numerous times to work with Coretheapple yesterday, last night, today, on the article talk page. I've asked him to stop being rude and personally attacking me. I've even thanked him (via the "Send Thanks" option) for an edit today that was a particularly good addition. In spite of all this, Coretheapple chooses to remain tendentious, rude, angry, uncivil and non-collegial. All of this, in my opinion, shows that he not only refuses to work with me, but that this report isn't really about edit warring, it's about someone he has chosen to dislike editing an article he's taken an interest in. If it were the opposite, it stands to reason that he would have changed his tone hours ago based on the discussion I keep trying to have with him at the article talk page. -- WV 19:09, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
Over the last 24 hours you've edit-warred with myself, an IP editor and User:Alanscottwalker, carrying out a total of 10 reverts at last count, and your wall-o-text rants are totally irrelevant to your incessant edit-warring. Coretheapple (talk) 22:27, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
Winkelvi: It is not a personal attack to identify your lack of comprehension when you have clearly failed to comprehend a source. Your justification of "Yiddish housing cooperative" below is simply your own interpretative original research (and mistranslation to boot). This is just one example: you frequently skim sources, find a few key phrases, paraphrase them into something creatively incorrect, and then aggressively edit-war for your version. My stating this is not a personal attack. It's just a time-wasting, disruptive editing fact of life on WP. Choor monster (talk) 16:06, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Someone who introduces the phrase "Yiddish housing cooperative" into WP, while having a history of reverting others for using "unencyclopedic" terminology (even when the contrary is documented) is not one to be taken seriously regarding who is or isn't "serious". I will leave the apportionment of blame to more experienced editors and admins, my comments stand on their own. Choor monster (talk) 16:25, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
I didn't introduce it, those creating the co-op did. The Shalom Aleichem Houses were originally called "Yiddish Cooperative Heimgesellschaft". In fact, they were called that when Myerson and her family lived there. Here's a great link to a CU discussion on the history [68] -- WV 16:32, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
Your version, both in your edit and in your statement here, misrepresents the link. In general, official names outside of the actual article on the subject are almost always a distraction at best and more commonly are reader-hostile intrusions, and your habit of edit-warring to make sure they are present is very unhelpful. Choor monster (talk) 16:47, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
Think what want. You made an unfounded accusation, ridiculed what I added to the article, I showed where the historically correct content came from. If you want to continue with your assault on my character and ability to edit based on that, knock yourself out; It's doing you no favors. -- WV 17:10, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
I commented on precisely what I commented, which was in regards to your precise language. Reading it as a comment on language you did not write or on other edits I didn't point out is just pointless thrashing. Also, edit-warring on your user page, where you have decided to implicitly but rather baldfacedly criticize Coretheapple, in open, knowing violation of WP:POLEMIC (you've done this trash before, and I referred you to it), is also pointless. Choor monster (talk) 17:18, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

─────────────────────────The only one edit warring on my User page is you, Choor monster . In fact, I see it as harassment. You don't have the right to edit the userspace of others. Doing it once is annoying. Doing it twice in edit warring-fashion is what's "pointless". Please stop the harassment. -- WV 17:26, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

I wholly support Coretheapple. I personally think a ban is in order for Winkelvi. Just based upon my own dealings with user Winkelvi, the user is exceedingly disruptive and seems to be trying to pick edit wars with people. Even with me personally, he seems to be taking to vindictive, touchy and aggressive editing behaviors out of the clear blue sky. He seems to be spoiling for edit warring disputes and seems to be stalking to get that. I don't know what this user's problem is, but I really am in no mood for for his disruptive antics. Like others, I strongly think a ban and cooling off period is in order. We're not here to pick edit war fights and break rules. If you're here for that, take it elsewhere. AmericanDad86 (talk) 04:41, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Note that WP:RFC/USER has been shut down as a bump on the way to ARBCOM. Choor monster (talk) 16:06, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes I see that. One correction to my report: I see that the very final revert that I listed took place after the 24-hour 3RR period. However, I am leaving it in as it is an example of his continuing to edit-war. That has not abated. More recently, he reverted accurately sourced material here because he didn't believe what the LA Times reported in its obit. In fact it was accurate, though it could have been more precise in saying that she hosted the TV broadcast and not the pageant itself (Parks did). So the hair-trigger reverting has not ended. Coretheapple (talk) 17:32, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Whilst I don't have a real opinion to most things here, your attempt at edit warring on Winkelvi's userpage, Choor monster, was inadvisable at best; in no way was there such a blatant violation of WP:POLEMIC that you had the right to remove all of 15 characters from their userpage in the first place, let alone edit war over it and then drag them to ANI over it. Also, AN3 is not the place to hash out content disputes, or request people to be "banned"; it is the place where you make edit-warring cases, and that's it. Lukeno94 (tell Luke off here) 18:57, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
    • One month before—I provided links—the admin Drmies had reverted Winkelvi's user page for similar anonymous attacks on the grounds that it did violate WP:POLEMIC, after the issue was first raised on WP:ANI. I did not claim the new text was a "blatant" violation, merely at the same level as the previous instance. Choor monster (talk) 20:13, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Which still does not justify the second revert, let alone the ANI thread. Also, I'm not remotely sure how you can justify that claim; the text that Drmies removed did clearly toe the line of polemic at the very best, whereas what you removed wasn't even close. Lukeno94 (tell Luke off here) 20:28, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
  • The difference is that it's much shorter. Meanwhile it toes the critical line: it's an attack on another editor, the one who brought this very AN3 report in the first, which is why it's getting mentioned in this particular AN3 discussion. Choor monster (talk) 20:38, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
  • No, the difference is that it wasn't a violation. "laundry list of reversion diffs" cannot remotely be interpreted on its own as polemic, and that is precisely what you were removing. Users are given quite a lot of freedom with what they can say on their userpages, and Winkelvi did not overstep that mark in that text. You had absolutely no right to act as you did there (you had a right to a single objection, not to two reverts and ANI thread). I'm a little surprised no admin has come in here to deal with the 3RR complaint though, because it does need looking at due to the large amount of reverts. Lukeno94 (tell Luke off here) 21:41, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
  • I quote from WP:POLEMIC as to what is not allowed: "Material that can be viewed as attacking other editors, including the recording of perceived flaws." Winkelvi introduced the new material later the same day as this report. Whether it was done with this report in mind, or just happens to be a good-faith coincidence, is actually irrelevant, the timing means it "can be viewed as attacking other editors." Choor monster (talk) 21:55, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
  • With specific twisting, almost anything can be viewed as attacking other editors. As I already stated, you had every right to object politely to Winkelvi's edit; you had no right to revert them twice and then waltz off to ANI over a nothing edit. Besides, if something so simple Winkelvi did offends you this much, you shouldn't have their userpage on your watchlist, or be looking at it at all. Lukeno94 (tell Luke off here) 22:01, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
  • So, let me get this straight; you complain about Winkelvi saying something polemic, and then write that? Well done. Lukeno94 (tell Luke off here) 22:12, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
  • You're being completely ridiculous. This isn't a User page. Choor monster (talk) 22:30, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
OK, thanks. And it would be awfully nice if administrators could monitor the talk page. Coretheapple (talk) 18:07, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Bloodthirsty, nonstop vandal with sockpuppet IPs who kept pointlessly pretending to be admin, but is no admin at all. All he does is destroy lots of entertainment company articles by eliminating useful information and botching up the grammar, spelling and formatting, removing the owner/parent company lists on infoboxes because they think they apply to pages for defunct companies only (C'mon, just because a company like MGM has gone through ownership changes doesn't mean it's defunct), renaming the era headings of history sections to past company names without any explanation, and reverting any of the old revisions I'm trying to bring back. Heck, he want these pages to stay like that for life, but no, his edits are nothing but persistent vandalism, and he just never leaves the pages alone.

Diff of attempt to resolve dispute on article talk page: [74] [75] [76]

Comments: New simple report because the last one was turned into a long WP:IDONTHEARTHAT debate. Above is clear 4RR within Jan 8 times stamps. If you review the page history it becomes clear that no other editor may make anything but a minor contribution to the article. Signedzzz has 53% of the total edits =over 2400 edits himself on this article and is guarding it, even while he keeps out important info. Debate is over - please act.

Legacypac has been going on an extended and increasingly hysterical witch-hunt of me, and apparently won't be happy until I give up editing. This has only intensified recently after I was pinged to make a comment at AN/I about my dealings with him. In the thread above, he discovered that I had written the Boko Haram article, which was supposedly a huge concern due to my habit of "factual innaccuracy".
His evidence for my long campaign of deception was 4 facts which were supposedly missing from the article, which he could, of course, have simply added (except, only one of the facts was actually missing). I was unable to comment much on this, as 2 of the facts (which actually are in the article) concerned a subject which he has had me TBANned from. This lead him to add 2 warning banners at the top of the article to warn readers of POV and factual inaccuracy, and he opened a thread in article talk about the supposed dire condition of the article, listing the 4 missing facts and complaining in outraged tones of the fact that I had written the article.
The 1st diff (which occurred after the last 3) is me reverting Legacypac's edit to a different section of the article, which he added, with warning banners, after arguing all night on the thread above. As I explain in the thread above, it introduced a factual error and removed sourced material while claiming it was unsourced. I also removed his unexplained warning banners; I am not sure why he didn't mention that - perhaps because he is aware that they are unambiguous vandalism.
In this report, User:Legacypac again suggests that I have been disruptive by writing an article that needed to be written. He implies that I prevent others from editing it - this is absolute rubbish. And despite his repeated hysterical claims, he has yet to find a single factual inaccuracy.
The 2nd, 3rd & 4th diffs are the subject of the thread above. They are me reverting Lipsquid's edit and the edit of his sockpuppet.
I notice that Legacypac and Lipsquid have now "taken over" the article. Therefore I wont be contributing to it any more, per User:EdJohnston's advice on my talk page, and I sincerely doubt I'll ever edit or disrupt or add factual innaccuracies to any other page either. zzz (talk) 00:39, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
Kindly stop with the false allegations and the WP:IDONTHEAR. When editors point out errors you act like you can't see what they are saying. A number of different editors are working to fix the article up and correct the inaccuracies and missing critical issues. 4 different editors have now assessed the part linked here you inserted 9 times and found it inappropriate for inclusion. Please start listening to what people are saying. Legacypac (talk) 02:31, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
"False allegations". You've said I'm "hypocritical" and "pushing" a [pro-terrorist] "agenda", for example. So what "false allegations" are you referring to? Or is that just like my "factual inaccuracies", ie. there are none?
  • Since other editors have said they dont like the paragraph I haven't added it
  • Lipsquid used a sockpuppet: evidence is crystal clear in report above.
  • After I discovered his sockpuppet, you proceeded to:
  • added a NPOV tag for no reason.
  • added a Factual accuracy tag for no reason.
  • added and re-added false information: "'Boko'... is widely translated and thought to be a corruption of the English word 'book'" - no source says it means "book", all sources say it means "fake", including the 2 sources cited inline for the statement, one of which specifically says it doesn't mean book, and mocks Wikipedia for previously saying it means "book" - all of which I explained to you in my very last comment in the thread above, hours before you added it back again
  • remove sourced info claiming it is "unsubstantiated content not found in the source" when it is in the source
  • You knew I'd revert these edits, so you could try yet again to get me sanctioned
  • yoouve now got the infobox claiming they are allied to al qaeda when the source in the article says they aren't since the middle of last year at least
  • you've changed the infobox to say "strength=9000" when the source says "up to", and the first para says "a few 100s to a few 1000s" (sourced)
  • you've been accusing me of factual errors left right and centre and you haven't pointed out one single factual error. And before you say "WP:IDIDNTHEARTHAT", point out a factual error
  • Its totally pointless editing if Legacypac's endless mudslinging and Lipsquid's sockpuppetry & trolling (eg "the word 'Boko Haram' is not in the reference you cited", referring to "Revolt in the north - Interpreting Boko Haram's war on western education") allow you to get rid of any editor you don't like and change an article that is totally accurate and balanced that I slaved over into a bunch of lies
  • The fact Legacypac can do all that, and add a "multiple issues" tag is a complete joke. That's all I wanted to say zzz (talk) 12:34, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the update. Lipsquid (talk) 16:21, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, socking and trolling is fun, huh, Lipsquid?

Starting with this edit, 1:23, 8 Jan, I count at least 5 reverts for User:Legacypac in less than 24 hours. Also on the 8th Jan, User:Lipsquid did 8 or 9 reverts [77]. zzz (talk) 16:57, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

The intro and every point in the multi-bullet post is incorrect. Further, either Signedzzz can't count or understand what a revert looks like. He continues to be disruptive and not get the WP:POINT as shown here. Now can we get an Admin to close this? Either block him completely or do a topic ban. Legacypac (talk) 18:43, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
Which part of WP:3RRNO do you think your reverts fall under?

Unbelievably, User:Legacypac has "archived" ie. closed all the discussions about content on the Talk:Boko Haram that just started in the last day or two, preventing ie. CENSORING any opposing views. And this is the user that sticks a POV tag on the article and repeatedly and without cause accuses me of pushing an agenda. zzz (talk) 18:47, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for bring this to my attention - a few hours ago I missed a single { in the archive bottom tag - fixed. The result was all the subsequent threads were combined in a huge close box. Any editor is allowed to fix such things. Legacypac (talk) 19:16, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
Uh, 12 hours ago. zzz (talk) 19:20, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Boko_Haram#POV_Issues, where you "justify" or "explain" your POV tag which I reverted and you re-reverted, is of course nothing more than one long polemic WP:PA against me. "55% of the total edits here are by one editor". You incorrectly and irrelevantly list 4 facts supposedly not in the article. Then you merely state without explanation or justification that I have a [pro-terrorism] "agenda that does not meet NPOV". I will have to seek sanctions for this. I didn't write this article to get publicly slandered. zzz (talk) 19:44, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

I could ask questions or for diffs, but he would just blather on with more nonsense allegations and never answer the questions or justify them. Legacypac (talk) 19:53, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
@Legacypac Do you want to name one of these mystery "nonsense allegations"? Or do you just want to delete the (unjustified) tags and corresponding attack thread? zzz (talk) 22:53, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

I should not feed the trolls, but the source in question -Paul Newman- lists 11 other sources that say Boko also means book as in "Book Learning" or "Western Learning". http://www.megatchad.net/publications/Newman-2013-Etymology-of-Hausa-boko.pdf Which also leads to the most reliably sourced definition of Boko Haram. "Western learning is forbidden". I have not seen any reliable sources that say the translation of Boko haram means - "fake is forbidden". There are 11 points of view available in the link. Only one says definitively that Boko does not mean book, but even 1 against 11 is a fair point to show contention, so I changed the article to take a more neutral stance on the definition of Boko. I am sure this will still lead us spinning off into a new, new, new tangent even though I again am trying to address the concerns you have made in good faith. Having an edit war over insisting that "Boko means book" absolutely must be deleted because you find it in one source while ignoring all other previous sources that say it does mean book, is pretty much the opposite of what an editor should do. You should show both sides, remain neutral and let readers draw their own conclusion whenever there is a discrepancy between sources, which is what I am trying to do in my latest edit. Lipsquid (talk) 21:05, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

"There are various pieces of evidence that support the view that boko not only never meant book, but could not have come from book. No one factor is crucial in and of itself, but they add up to the same conclusion, namely that the resemblance between boko and book is purely coincidental and of no historical linguistic import." (page 8, my added emphasis).

Or just read the first paragraph, the "Abstract", which means "what the entire reference is all about".
Could an administrator please look at the ref and try to explain it to the user? I really don't know if he's wp:trolling or just lacking in wp:competence. Either way, I'm positive he won't listen to me. zzz (talk) 22:07, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
Lipsquid, how do you explain your claim that "the word 'Boko Haram' is not in the reference you cited" (after you deleted a large paragraph of the article) when the phrase is in the title, and repeated prominently throughout? Were you wp:trolling? Are you trolling again now? zzz (talk) 23:24, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Not taking the bait. Have a nice weekend... Lipsquid (talk) 23:43, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

It was an honest question. I suppose I've got to assume that someone who habitually uses wp:sockpuppets also enjoys wp:trolling. zzz (talk) 23:59, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Stop x nuvola with clock.svg Blocked – Signedzzz is blocked four days for long-term edit warring at Boko Haram, as well as a 3RR violation on 8 January. The closure of this complaint was delayed due to discussions which took place both here and in a report above. It appeared for a while that Signedzzz was agreeing to take a break from the article, but he made this controversial edit on 10 January which removes article tags, showing that he has not stopped editing at Boko Haram. This block can be lifted if Signedzzz will accept a topic ban from Islamic extremism and Boko Haram, which will apply everywhere on Wikipedia on articles, talk pages and noticeboards. Signedzzz is already banned from editing on WP:GS/SCW per an earlier complaint. EdJohnston (talk) 03:25, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

Deleting information because he feels the source is not reliable. Fails to improve the alleged grammar problems or provide more references. He argues that TMZ is not a valid reference. Who has made that decision? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.7.149.151 (talk) 15:32, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Have just filed a page protection request because of the reporting IP here [78]. Protection request reads as follows: Persistent vandalism – Sensitive BLP due to recent sexual abuse allegations against article subject. IP reverting back in bad content, content not referenced by reliable sources, using bogus reasons for reversions. Likely same sockpuppet IP from Constitucion, Chile article - that article had to be protected, as well, and the IP has a vendetta against me. IP is using proxies. -- WV 15:36, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

    • Allegations are completely unjustified, user:winkelvi is rigourously edit warring to secure his revisions. He is not making an attempt to improve the article. user:winkelvi is currently banned from editing the Bess Myerson article due to edit warring.

Reporting user is IP hopping again. And no, I am not "banned" from editing any articles. -- WV 15:50, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

    • using a satelite internet connection is not banned by wikipedia. Satelite ISP's use dynamic adresses which periodically change. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.109.135.183 (talk) 15:55, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
I removed it because you are an IP-hopping sockpuppet who is trolling and this report is completely bogus. -- WV 17:02, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
Might interest some that User:Winkelvi was reported just a couple days ago by User:Coretheapple for similar edit warring 3RR violations, as shown here [80]. Additionally, Winkelvi has engaged in similar behaviors toward myself AmericanDad86 (talk) 20:03, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

─────────────────────────Based on this [81] and then this [82], I'm now wondering if the reporting IP and edit warring IP at Stephen Collins (see here [83], [84], [85], [86]) isn't actually User:AmericanDad86 behaving in a sockpuppet fashion in order to fulfill his current agenda: seeking to have me blocked (or "banned" as he erroneously stated in the report here and at the report he referenced above and commented on yesterday). -- WV 20:37, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment: I just semi-protected the article for 10 days as a result of the ips edit warring. Bjelleklang - talk 22:37, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
Many thanks, Bjelleklang. -- WV 22:56, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
