I have reverted them again in the past few hours. I believe that totals at least seven reverts by the subject. Jusdafax 18:48, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

I have opened up an SPI also as a new editor has appeared and on their first edit they reverted to the same version, see [[1]]. -- GB fan 20:11, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Instead, WP:FORUMSHOP at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Transracial (2nd nomination) Widefox; talk 21:32, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

Comments:

User:Widefox has engaged in aggressive harrassment, stalking and an attempt to game the system (as this faux and dishonest report is an example of) for hours now, in his attempt to push an article about a known hoax (currently promoted by 4chan), subject to an onging AfD, by giving the hoax article an aggressively undue prominence in a disambiguation page, and incorrectly placing the only established meaning of the word in a "see also" section. I have correctly reverted this borderline-vandalism exactly twice. Tadeusz Nowak (talk) 21:53, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Drama aside, have you used the talk page as I have, and as I asked you? If not, why not? Instead, you created a FORUMSHOP at AfD (which may be procedurally closed) adding to the disruptive editing.
  • Your edit history show long-term disruption e.g. Historikerstreit etc
  • Several editors have asked you to use edit summaries, but you've refused. Widefox; talk 21:59, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
    • The only disruptive editor here is you, as indeed evidenced by your latest comment. You can wikilawyer as much as you want, the fact is that you engaged in disruptive edits to push a hoax already subject to an AfD, edit warring, and aggressive harrassment and stalking on talk pages, and now even here. Tadeusz Nowak (talk) 22:03, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
The logical flaw in that argument is that I've already marked the dab for cleanup (and noted the NEO) before you made your conspiracy theory based accusations and edit warring. Widefox; talk 22:19, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
I find it rather comical that a user who has made exactly the same number of both reverts and total edits on the page in question (to give a hoax article likely to be deleted and subject to an AfD undue prominence, clearly contrary to MOS) reports the other editor for "edit warring" (after hours of harrassing the editor on his talk page). Tadeusz Nowak (talk) 22:32, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
Well, except that ignores the fact I flagged-up the NEO first at the dab, my edit was discussed on the talk beforehand, and you ignored all attempts to discuss at the talk even after multiple prompting and warning, so I reported your edit warring here. Widefox; talk 04:22, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
After my initial good faith edit (not a revert, but a normal edit), you template spammed my user talk page with a patronizing "Notice: Incorrect edit" template instead of raising any issue you might have had in a constructive manner, and you continued template spamming my talk page with numerous templates in an aggressive manner. Also, placing the only established meaning of the word in a "see also" section instead of the actual list of meanings, and only placing the contested hoax article (subject to an AfD) in the proper list, seems both clearly incorrect and not constructive to me. Tadeusz Nowak (talk) 16:06, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Widefox's edits appear to be aimed at propagating a hoax. They look and smell like vandalism to me. -- haminoon (talk) 22:27, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

User:Haminoon that's the same logical flaw above. Care to give an edit diff for the "vandalism"? I noted the NEO on the dab before both of you. While you may be validly removing a hoax article (I do not know), the same logic is above - I've marked on the dab that it's a NEO, but the dab has other valid meanings, so both of you countering the hoax is misplaced at the dab, and unrelated. Widefox; talk 23:52, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
Here's a diff: [38]. You've moved the only accepted meaning of the word "transracial" down into the "see also" section and added a completely absurd definition of the word. -- haminoon (talk) 00:13, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
Check the diff again - which word? I didn't add a word in that diff. Further, it has comments explaining it per MOSDAB! Check WP:MOSDAB - all my edits are in line with that, and the reasoning explicitly explained in the edit diff and on the talk page (which the two of you are only now using). A belated bogus defence of fighting "vandalism" doesn't justify edit warring, and detracts from what appears to be a valid hoax deletion elsewhere. Widefox; talk 00:39, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
User:Haminoon, unless you've got a real vandalism diff, suggest you withdraw the accusation promptly. BTW, these exact same (WP:PTM) issues came up by other experienced dab editors at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Interracial due to it being an adjective. Widefox; talk 00:48, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
WP:BOOMERANG - Cwobeel (talk) 01:03, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
(User:Cwobeel if referring to me) Hardly - I used the talk page before anyone else was on the dab. There's many editors trying to delete the NEO, so?, the dab has been there a year. Widefox; talk 01:57, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
(if referring to User:Haminoon) WP:VAND explicitly states not to accuse editors in good standing as it's a personal attack, and they've provided no diff for any of these multiple accusations. Suggest they strike all these factually incorrect accusations here, at the RfD Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2015 June 15 and anywhere else. Widefox; talk 04:11, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
I accept that Widefox wasn't vandalising. In the context of a number of editors trying to insert a deliberate falsehood into Wikipedia I don't think blocking anyone involved in 3RR violations here will do any good. -- haminoon (talk) 07:43, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Previous version reverted to: [39]

Diffs of the user's reverts:

  1. Removed a reference to a highly unknown (in-)formalism. At minimum it would need to be confirmed by the Erlang authors.
  2. This is rewriting history. It needs to be confirmed by the authors of Erlang. At minimum, I would expect them to answer CSP or pi-Calculus. Not the unknown Actor model nobody knew, or knows, about.
  3. Find a quote where the authors of Erlang discuss Hewitt's Actor Model.
  4. Cherry picking. Hoare is mentioned several times in Armstrong's thesis, Hewitt is not. It's based on CSP as by your article. I included the reference to CSP, the Actor Model is discussed there.

A freshly-minted IP editor who has hit bright-line 4RR in six hours with their first four edits. They asked for sources, they were given sources, they kept on regardless.

(Ignore the indented paras unless you care about the underlying content issue)
Erlang (programming language) is a programming language noted for its particular focus on concurrent programming. Concurrent programming is complex and has a substantial literature around it. One of the conceptual means to achieve it is the 'Actor model', published in 1973 by Hewitt. This repeated removal is based on the claim that Erlang does not (contrary to a large number of available sources) use this Actor model. Another well-known and often cited model is CSP, in 1978 by CAR Hoare.
Erlang post-dates Actor by some decades. The Actor model was reasonably well-known by the time of Erlang and was in use for a number of platforms. There was even an (obscure) programming language in the early '90s called "Actor" itself. Significantly cut-down, but it did borrow aspects of the Actor model (and a lot of Smalltalk, which is also related). Despite this, there is a broadly held view that Erlang's developers were at least unaware of the 1970s Actor work, although IMHO, this stretches credibility.
This is irrelevant. The point is that either by influence or by independent parallel evolution, Erlang now uses a model of concurrency which matches that theorized originally as Actor. Considerable sourcing attests to this.
The IP editor began by removing the simple and unsourced, although uncontentious, statement "Erlang's concurrency implementation is the Actor model." That is (per much policy) reasonable editing. However their edit summary has two problems: Actor is emphatically not "a highly unknown (in-)formalism", it is basic undergraduate knowledge to any recent (post 1990s?) CS student. Nor does WP:V on WP require that, "it would need to be confirmed by the Erlang authors" – we are happy to accept WP:RS.
To improve the article, I restored this and added a reference. It's a source that's moderately well-known in Erlang teaching as it's a readable explanation of the situation.
This was removed again as "This is rewriting history. It needs to be confirmed by the authors of Erlang. At minimum, I would expect them to answer CSP or pi-Calculus. Not the unknown Actor model nobody knew, or knows, about." As before, re RS rather than authors. Although CSP is the first "standard model" for concurrency that's taught to undergrads, this is emphatically and obviously not the way that Erlang does things.
If the IP editor wants a "horse's mouth" source, I gave them one as a second reference, from Armstrong (creator of Erlang) with a direct quote to that effect. They removed that too.

The IP editor is new and AGF'ed ignorant of practices here. However when they revert as fast as another editor adds the sources they previously wanted (but then ignore) it's hard to do much else. I notice they've since (after 3RR) made a talk: comment, but it's well-hidden as a comment to a 5 year old dead thread with a confusing title, Talk:Erlang_(programming_language)#History_accourding_to_J.C3.B6rg_Mittag. A comment that even begins, "I am in a revert war at the moment.", which is hardly encouraging for someone willing to discuss their position. In the meantime though, going straight to 4RR from a throwaway IP account now makes it impossible for another editor to do any constructive work on the article. Andy Dingley (talk) 01:29, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Comment from User:86.82.44.193: I haven't reverted the latest == User:Catty319 reported by User:MPFitz1968 (Result: Blocked) ==. I have adapted it to reflect that, as the author of Erlang admits, it was inspired by the Occam language and CSP. The Actor Model by Hewitt is mostly unknown, as can also be observed in the thesis of the author of Erlang where Hewitt isn't mentioned even once and Hoare is. The Actor Model by Hewitt is mostly philosophy and has no formal standing, is hardly discussed in academia, moreover the author of the Actor Model is involved in highly contentious research without fundamental grounding such as inconsistency logics, disproving Goedel, and -more recently- the invention of Actorscript (ActorScript™ extension of C#®, Java®, Objective C®, JavaScript®, and SystemVerilog using iAdaptive™ concurrency for antiCloud™ privacy and security) (https://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/hal-01147821) which he doesn't get through thorough peer-reviewed channels; Hewitt is widely known for making wild claims. The Actor Model doesn't exist except for a collection of incoherent ideas. The technical report mentioned by Armstrong isn't Hewitt's actor model but one loosely defined upon it. I am sorry for the confusion, but Hoare has infinitely higher standing than Hewitt, even if the wikipedia page on the Actor Model doesn't reflect it. - Concluding: My edits are only to reflect that to the best of our knowledge Erlang is based on the highly technical research done with CSP and the occam language (as the author of Erlang, Armstrong, admits in the paper Andy Dingley mentions) and not on philosophy and wild claims made by Hewitt. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.82.44.193 (talk) 02:05, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

" I haven't reverted the latest edit."
Four times now you have removed the text, "Erlang's concurrency implementation is the Actor model.". Whatever else you might have done to change the references added, you have removed this statement four times. Andy Dingley (talk) 02:54, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
Yeah. With good reason. It now reads that Erlang was based on Occam and CSP. That I did it four times is meaningless, please stick to the discussion whether it is reasonable. As I stated, Hewitt is well known for making wild claims and coming with wild theories with little formal backing. You cannot possibly compare CSP to the Actor Model, which is an exercise in informal thought. CSP is very hard technical work backed by tons of research; in contrast, the Actor Model is an unknown informal thought experiment with little backing except for some master's and phd work and all professors have that. There simply is no comparison. The so called "Actor Model" is now mentioned on the CSP page, which already is stretching its importance.
Please note that, as you said, the so called "Actor Model" wasn't known by the author neither mentioned in his thesis. And I, who has be following academic research on concurrency theory for twenty years, have only heard from it since last week. It really is a highly informal unknown formalism pushed by an author who makes wild claims. Sorry. The reverts were for a reason. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.82.44.193 (talk) 03:21, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Stop x nuvola with clock.svg Blocked – for a period of 31 hours. The fact that you did it four times is exactly the point. A determination of whether you were edit warring or broke the three-revert rule does not take into account who is "right", who is "wrong", or whether your edits are "reasonable", the point is to talk about it rather than repeat the same changes over and over. Furthermore, you should have had this discussion on the article's talk page instead of trying to conduct it through edit summaries and here on the edit warring noticeboard after the edit war occurred. —Darkwind (talk) 08:14, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Erlang is based on the CSP and the occam language not this Actor model. It is even questionable if this "Actor model" deserves all the coverage it is given on Wiki.

Dingley kept restoring this content with no attempt at discussion. 86.82.44.193 started a discussion at the article talk: page but Dingley ignored that and preferred to keep warring.

@Pishcal: removed swathes of promotional, resume-style text from this article, but this user is continuing to readd it. I've warned them about WP:NPOV and Wikipedia is not for resumes, but they continued to revert despite a 3RR warning. Joseph2302 (talk) 23:05, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Note that the editor in question has not attempted to resolve the dispute in any form and has failed to communicate with anyone despite notices / warnings. Pishcal 02:39, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
The warnings included subsequent text about why it was inappropriate, and I also gave them notice of 3RR- if they'd bothered to read it, then I wouldn't have reported them. Also, these additions are so ridiculously promotional that any decent editor can see why they're wrong- edit warring to spam a page is never acceptable. Joseph2302 (talk) 13:43, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
I think Pishcal (t c) meant that the editor you reported, Bashirmsaad, has failed to communicate. —Darkwind (talk) 07:58, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Straight off a block for edit warring at this very article [64], Factchecker is right back at it, with three reverts in ~12 hours. It's not a 3RR violation -- but it is edit-warring per WP:EW, which says quite clearly that a violation can consist of fewer than 3 reverts. Again, it's the very same article where Factchecker's edit-warring led to a week-long block. Nomoskedasticity (talk) 11:40, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

I reverted to a weight-neutral version while a discussion, which Nomoskedasticity has never bothered with, continues. Nomo, meanwhile, prefers drive-by reverts with no discussion nor even a stated justification. This is a simple attempt to avoid the losing end of a content dispute by removing another editor from it.

Your entire participation over the entire dispute has been to say, on precisely two occasions and without any elaboration whatsoever, that you agree with David.

Comments:

Within the space of 24 hours User:Robsinden has four times restored text that was originally deleted by Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) and subsequently deleted by Montanabw (x2) and Softlavender. The page was then protected in the wrong version by Ritchie333 to stop the edit-war. Robsinden has edit-warred after a warning and against three other editors to force his preferred version into the page. No matter the rights and wrongs of the edit (currently debated at the Talk page), edit-warring is not the means by which editors should be conducting their disputes. This a clear breach of a bright line after a warning and any editor who shows such contempt for our normal behavioural expectations should be sanctioned to provide the solution. That would allow full protection to be lifted from an important guideline page and allow normal editing to resume. --RexxS (talk) 18:24, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

  • It's clearly not the wrong version. Text was removed without discussion, and in fact didn't make any sense, because there is a subsequent clause referring to navboxes thereafter. It's not just my preferred version, it's the version that has been stable for 5 years. Okay, I may have overstepped the reverting, but was feeling very frustrated yesterday by users who I felt were gaming the system for their own POV and then accusing me of writing guidelines to fit my view, when all I was trying to do was to keep the guideline at the status quo. Anyway, there is now a discussion in place, so hopefully we can all move on constructively. --Rob Sinden (talk) 07:58, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

A administrator whom I know, MilborneOne advised me not to make any further edits(during a dispute in the supercarrier) until a consensus is arrived upon the issue. But now, when the discussion is going on whether to include Kuznetsov,Vishal,etc. is going on, Two editors removed these references without any consensus. I was actually temporarily absent during that time. This led to these series of edits. So, If my edit is disruptive, I wish similar action to be taken on those disruptive editors too.M.srihari (talk) 15:49, 18 June 2015 (UTC)Srihari

  • I have to add that I haven't added one single sentence to that article. This article has received one-sided edits from both sides and I am just reverting. The last revert has no association with previous reverts. I have worked there and understand that such unbalanced narratives inflame the problem. I am prepared to discuss on talk-page but these users will refuse to discuss and just push whatever they want with new accounts. Markus W. Karner (talk) 01:08, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Markus W. Karner removes well sourced content using very strange excuses (e.g. that he is in Myanmar and hence somehow has more authority or grasp of facts on the ground than the well regarded authors that are cited. Also, his claim that he is "prepared to discuss on talk-page but these users will refuse to discuss" is a blatant lie. A quick check of his talk page shows that he repeatedly ignored requests to discuss or specifically explain the reasons for his bulk removal of content. I believe he should be blocked to prevent his continual mass content removal which he defends in a very personal, nonsensical manner.58.106.254.122 (talk) 07:46, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Markus W. Karner, even a good-faith edit war is an edit war. Both of you are edit warring, which is why I brought this case here. The way to fix (alleged) vandalism isn't to edit war. You were warned once already 12 hours before I brought this case and you ignored it and kept on keepin' on instead of looking for another solution, like say seeking Admin assistance in the shape of IP edit protection by showing it is in fact vandalism.

Warring to repeatedly change the long-term stable

to

As is well-known, mercury has a serious hazard of chronic (long-term) mercury poisoning. However it's surprisingly difficult to achieve this through acute (short-term) exposure to elemental mercury metal. Deliberate suicide attempts have been unsuccessful. [73] [74]

Karen Wetterhahn was an expert chemist on mercury compounds. Her accidental death was unexpected and led to changes in the rules for handling organic mercury compounds, such as dimethylmercury. What was unappreciated beforehand was how risky these compounds were for penetrating protective gear. These compounds are also absorbed biologically far more readily than elemental mercury.

Her death though, as described in the article and from the sources in it such as Losing world‐class chemist Karen Wetterhahn to mercury poisoning redrew the boundaries of safety and risk., is accurately described as mercury poisoning. The crucial aspect was the organomercury compound increasing the risk of penetrating the gloves. In contrast to the unexpected difficulty of absorbing mercury quickly otherwise, it is the mechanism of exposure that makes the difference, and the eventual cause of death can accurately be described as the broader "mercury poisoning". The summary "dimethylmercury is a compound, so it's not mercury poisoning." is wrong, per the article, per the sources. Nor is the previous version "bullshit".

The edit warring here might appear to be over a trivial detail, but to chemists this stuff matters (it has killed at least one expert chemist). Chemists care about precise detail in stuff like this. In April we saw much the same thing from Dqeswn with 4 changes at Largest artificial non-nuclear explosions "This is not true either. Deflagration AKA burning is not an explosion either." (Note that although deflagration isn't a detonation, it is of course considered as an explosion. Chemists care about these things.)

It's at 4RR, clear bright-line. Only attempts to discuss were mine User_talk:Dqeswn#Mercury poisoning (after 2RR) Talk:Karen_Wetterhahn#Changes_at_List_of_unusual_deaths.231990s (after 3RR) and Dqeswn's User_talk:Andy_Dingley#dimethylmercury (simultaneous with 4RR).

I had already blocked when I noted this. Editor blocked until he agrees to cease the edit war. Restored the article to the version that agrees with the citation provided in the article.—Kww(talk) 18:56, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
Her death is not accurately described as mercury poisoning, and is not so described by the first of the three sources cited (the other two are not currently accessible). According to that source "[dimethylmercury] is one of the most potent neurotoxins known. It readily crosses the blood-brain barrier". It is way more toxic than mercury. I shall correct the article in line with the edit-warrior's views. Maproom (talk) 20:12, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
Unsurprisingly, I would not consider that a particularly good change. As to your claim about the three sources, we have
  • [75] "the second person to die of dimethylmercury poisoning in this century." / "of mercury poisoning."
  • [76] "Losing world‐class chemist Karen Wetterhahn to mercury poisoning"
  • [77] "she slipped into a coma and died from acute mercury poisoning."
She was exposed to dimethylmercury. She died of mercury poisoning. Now it is not incorrect to state "dimethylmercury poisoning" either, but the whole crux of her notability is because of the distinction between mercury and dimethylmercury as exposure hazards. We should preserve that distinction and make it clear, especially in wide audience introductions, such as in LoUD. To claim, "Her death is not accurately described as mercury poisoning" (your emphasis) is just plain wrong. Andy Dingley (talk) 20:41, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
She no more died of "mercury poisoning" than someone who swallows cyanide dies of "carbon poisoning". She died of poisoning by a particularly toxic compound of mercury. Some lazy journalists, knowing that metallic mercury is itself a poison, fail to distinguish "mercury" from "a compound of mercury". But read source 84 from the article.

I fail to understand why both parties were not blocked in this edit war. --jpgordo
