I tried talking to him but he is not reasoning with me.

Comments:

He keeps deleting my edits. I sourced my edits with CIA Factbook and another book.

The statement below is the one he keeps deleting even though it has reliable sources to support it.

Somalia was the first non-Arab country to be a member of the Arab League in 1974. <ref>Somalia Business Law Handbook: Strategic Information and Laws. International Business Publications, USA. Aug 1, 2013. p. 48. ISBN 1-4387-7104-5.</ref

In Somalia there are only 30,000 Arabs in the country. "People and Society Somalia -". CIA Factbook.

  • Result: Both parties cautioned. It appears there is a disagreement between the CIA Factbook and the charter of the Arab League. The League says it is only open to Arab states, while the CIA has its own specific way of designating people as Arabs. The claim that Somalia is a non-Arab country is cited only to a single source; maybe not all sources agree. If the issue is going to be kept, the two of you should work out a compromise about the wording. For example, you could use indirect speech and don't treat 'Arab' as a fact of nature, treat it as a social construct where opinions could differ. (In our biographical articles we usual rely on self-identification for ethnicity). If warring continues, one or more blocks may be needed. EdJohnston (talk) 14:48, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

Hello. This editor has been induldging in continuos disruption on the article. Asides from edit-warring he has violated many other policies including adding his personal POV, removing sourced content many times without any reason at all, threatening other users so he can have have his way. I have warned him many times in edit summaries to desist from disruptive editing or he will be blocked. I also warned him on his talk page about this yet he continued to do what he wanted. I stopped editing as I do not want to be involved an edit war. However even after being reverted by other editors many times, Exciting2015 is reverting them as well. It seems that this person is clearly not here to make Wikipedia better and editing articles solely according to his own personal views, having no regard at all for the rules. He also wrote on my talk page that the article was "not a political discussion of Kashmiri Pandits and was about Kashmiri Muslims" and told me to remember this even though clearly all I added in the article was about the subject. You can see his message in this link here: [18]. His message to me also shows his personal bias and that he is editing the article based on his personal POV. Clealrly he will not listen to anything. I request the admins to block this disruptive user for some time so he does not repeat this behaviour again. Thank you. 59.89.41.149 (talk) 20:11, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

Comments:
Erus97 has been reverting other editors since 7 July 2016. Clearly this editor is not a new user, making only 1-2 reverts/day. Despite this clearly avoidance of 3rr, this is still disruptive editing, since Erus97 has chosen not to explain their concerns on the talk page. Erus97 was blocked for 31 hours by Widr at 04:34, 8 July 2016,[28] and once the blocked expire went back to removing referenced information. Please note all of Erus97's edits consist of removing "Persian" from the Nasir al-Din al-Tusi article.[29] --Kansas Bear (talk) 22:49, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

After repeatedly revering each other on Brazil v Germany (2014 FIFA World Cup)‎ to the point where both editors were blocked and the page required full protection when the blocks expired, these editors have now taken their dispute to Disgrace of Gijón (see diffs above) and to a lesser extent to Netherlands national football team. Sir Sputnik (talk) 17:38, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

He has also done this at 2015 Copa América Chase (talk) 17:51, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

Get real. I've told Josh to engage in dialogue (see both talk pages) and informed him of BRD and he still doesn't communicate or attempt to cooperate. His edits to the Dutch national team were reverting me just because (no explanation) and reverted instantly by others because they were that obvious. As for the Copa América, I was removing a gigantic chart of original research that someone just made up one day, only to be reverted and told to find sources for something that doesn't exist. Why were the other users so zealously defending something without being zealous enough to prove its existence? I opened discussion there as well. In all of these cases I have been the first to request and open discussion. '''tAD''' (talk) 18:29, 9 July 2016 (UTC) Oh and get this. When I posted on Josh's talkpage to open discussion so that he would avoid another block, he just instantly undid my posting of that message. With no explanation, as always. I don't care if I'm blocked when someone else is refusing to cooperate, I can't just sit there and let them take over. It's immense hutzpah from Chase to bring up the Copa América thing when the other users couldn't be bothered to source the existence of their sacred chart of holy original research '''tAD''' (talk) 18:33, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

  • The Almightey Drill, just because you believe you are "right" does not mean you have a free license to remove content from a page an unlimited number of times. Another editor's failure to engage in discussion with you also does not give you that right. Because of your behavior in this situation, as well as your history of disregard for community policy (as shown in your block log), you are Stop x nuvola with clock.svg Blocked – for a period of 1 week. Furthermore, if you continue to engage in disruption on football-related articles, you are going to earn a topic ban.
  • JoshDonaldson20, failure to engage in discussion, as well as edit warring again so soon after being blocked for the same behavior, is concerning to me, and you are Stop x nuvola with clock.svg Blocked – for a period of 60 hours. You may also end up with a topic ban from football articles if you keep up with these disputes after your block expires. –Darkwind (talk) 04:08, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

User:Sportsfan 1234 reported by User:TheGreenGiant23 (Result: Declined)[edit]

If someone, administrators or anybody involved in the Wikipedia project, can help us to end once for all the edit wars between User:Sportsfan 1234 and User:Raymarcbadz, it will be more than appreciated. I think that the attitude of user Sportsfan 1234 towards others is in cause here : he is rude, uncooperative and try to intimidate several experienced contributors, including me, of blocking or reporting for vandalism even if other users had only suggested different views of thinking and showed respectful behaviour toward the user.

If anybody can just calm him down, it will be great, and more important, remind him that he is not elected as an administrator, thus he has no powers to block anyone or to act like an administrator, and that he should always tried to discuss with respect instead of insulting, intimidating, and creating endless edit wars by reverting systematically the work of some veterans contributors.

I’m suggesting a first courtesy warning and if doesn’t listen, temporary block to calm him down and change his behaviour.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

TGG23

User:Raymarcbadz has been told on multiple occasions of the MOS rules for WP:Olympics by multiple users [46] and accepted receipt of the message. Yet when the rules are applied for example here [47] and [48], he decides to not apply the MOS rules. I don't know what that is, but it clearly is not constructive editing. Sportsfan 1234 (talk) 11:26, 10 July 2016 (UTC) @Basement12:
@Sportsfan 1234:, calm down. You are the only one who reminded me about the MOS rules, and you took too much control on reverting my edits, in which they make me stressful and irritating. Are you born to be an administrator of the project? That's why you want to intimidate me all the time? @TheGreenGiant23: I'm also an experienced contributor for quite a long time. I've contributed heavily on the WikiProject Olympics, and I've done a tremendous effort on the NOC articles. I also created thousands of articles throughout my four-year span. And btw, he also judged me on my grammar in the edit summaries. Isn't it disrespectful? He acts himself as an administrator of the WP:OLY, and tries to strictly dictate everything without further discussion. Raymarcbadz (talk) 11:37, 10 July 2016 (UTC)
His general behavior toward other users, regardless of the content, right or not, is clearly disrespectful and a source of tensions and edit wars since at least 2 years, and goes against many rules edicted by the Wikipedia conduct rules, including civility, consensus, dispute resolution, edit warring, harassment, non-discrimination and no personal attacks. TheGreenGiant23 (talk) 12:11, 10 July 2016 (UTC)
Exactly, he showed some form of disrespect whenever I edit something. Lately, he just put the word "grammar" in the edit summary in which it may sound annoying towards the user or does not point out the specific details regarding somebody's grammar and composition.

That being said, nothing here crosses the line of edit warring. @DustWolf: I would like to remind you to assume good faith in your interactions with other editors, and try to focus on their contributions and not the reasons you assume that they are editing in a certain way. Accusing editors of being on an ego trip or of editing with a particular bias is not going to get you very far in actually resolving problems.

Comments:
The problem with the article is the fact that it is biased. I tried to solve it by improving the article. My main source is Earp, Brian D, a Researcher on the University of Oxford. He wrote about the topic on "University of Oxford: Practical Ethics". He might not be peer-reviewed, but his sources are - and the fact that he is working at the University of Oxford and his article was published there makes him an acceptable source. And I used all of his sources. And all I wrote can be found in these peer-reviewed articles:

  • [Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews Art No CD003255]
  • [American Journal of Preventive Medicine]
  • [Department of Pediatrics and Human Development, College of Human Medicine, Michigan State University, Marquette, MI, USA]
  • [Journal of Law and Medicine]
  • [Horizon (in French). pp. 185–210 (a French research database)]
  • [Global Public Health: An International Journal for Research, Policy and Practice: Volume 10, Issue 5-6, 2015]

The only non-peer reviewed material I used were the article written by an University of Oxford Researcher and a Huffington Post article. But both were just additional material, because most readers don't understand science journals. Not to mention that nearly all sources were news articles and not academic research material when I started to add some text to the article. But, as I said, all what I wrote was covered by peer-reviewed articles in renominated, peer-reviwed journals.

And here is the clue. Even though all my material is peer-reviewed, he deleted a whole section because: "blogs, the Huffington Post and fringe journal articles are not WP:MEDRS (or even WP:RS) for the serious aspects of this topic. Please familiarise yourself with Wikipedia's principles. You also appear to be publishing links to illicit copies of copyrighted material, which is a problem. Alexbrn (talk) 15:46, 11 July 2016 (UTC)". Not to mention that I used one blog and not blogs, and that the one blog was hosted by Oxford University. Not to mention again that Huffington Post wasn't a main source - and that Huffington Post articles are used overall at Wikipedia.

Editor @The Copper Miner has serious ownership issues as demonstrated by his message on my talk page ([63]), to wit, "If you would like to make changes to the article hence listed above, please confer with me first as I do not wish to have all of my tireless work undone by yourself"; he also clearly has no idea how to edit in good faith. The article thus has serious OR and POV issues which I tried to address but was met with edit warring. Quis separabit? 20:22, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting support.svg Page protected There are problems on both sides. Rms125a@hotmail.com, an edit summary of "start over --- there is no ownership of articles" is not a substitute for discussion. Yes, I know The Copper Miner is the one making changes, but it does look like a fair amount of work and a talk page post detailing your objections would help. The Copper Miner, same goes for you. Use the talk page post to explain why your changes are improvements. Also, Rms125a@hotmail.com does not have to confer with you before making changes and their edits are emphatically not vandalism.

71.246.152.193 is making an edit war about a non-trivial change on Judaism and masturbation. He is introducing his original research and non-conventional claims, and demands I discuss with him before I revert, while I try to tell him the burden of proof is on him and that he hasn't met that burden. He seems to have an agenda and in his edit summary "your theology trumps what it actually says while too proud to engage in discussion" he didn't refrain from making personal statements about me. I wouldn't go so far as calling it attacks, but making this into something personal, or suggesting that such is my approach, is not professional and not nice. Debresser (talk) 17:44, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Please note that the issue is edit warring without a 3RR violation so far. Debresser (talk) 17:45, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Can you clarify the issue? I see the IP added stuff, but it is sourced. The major issue is that neither of you are using the talk page before you re-insert claims. Some of the stuff he added seems OK for the article. Sir Joseph (talk) 17:56, 11 July 2016 (UTC)
The issue is behavioral. This IP is an edit warrior.
If you mean the content issue, this is not really the place, but for your information, and just to show that there is indeed an "issue", it is mainly the "Other than this" section which is original research, and the rearrangement of the paragraphs also is not okay IMHO. By the way, the sources are not his, they are just rearranged. Debresser (talk) 18:13, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Comments:

I noticed this user's first revert, and looked through the history and saw that there had already been a bit of edit warring prior to today, so I looked back through the talk page history, and found where this specific issue of using the word "racist" in the lead had been discussed extensively, back in 2008, on both the talk page and RSN. Consensus seemed to be to keep it out. It hasn't been in the lead since then, until May of this year, when this user inserted it.

So I put a note on the talk page, and reverted his addition of that word, and also another bit of gratuitously POV phrasing that the user had added some time ago, but apparently went unnoticed. I put the links to the old discussions in the talk page, and stated my reasons for reverting. He immediately reverted back, has left comments that gave no indication that he looked into the old discussions. The comments were to the effect that his should be the accepted version, with the burden of reaching consensus on me. I reverted once more (for a total of two times). But he has reverted both of those, and this edit of Ianmacm

Wow. I just discovered that Landerman56 has been making disruptive edits to James Watson since 2007 -- the year of the incident that caused Watson's downfall. See this history. I didn't check all of them, but among the earliest 15 or so, there were none that were much other than to slap the word "racist" over the descriptions of Watson's statements, and these edits were (among the ones I checked) all reverted -- sometimes not right away, but all within 5-6 edits downstream.

Also, looking at the history of his talk page, which he keeps squeeky-clean (my notice of reporting him yesterday is already gone) you can see that since the account began, people have been complaining of him. Here are just a few of the earliest ones:

I only did three reverts, as the 45th was a technical fix due a mistake from copy pasting the article twice, and therefore did not break 3RR. Cirflow (talk)

Even if that count is so - which is debatable - the fact that you said you "don't care"[94] about the admitted contentious nature of your edit, and then swiftly went to what your thought was your "allowance" of reverts without any Talk page posts, on a topic for which you have been warned before, seems rather disruptive and makes me think Doc's request for a TB could help here.

I will continue to monitor the article. -- zzuuzz (talk) 13:09, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
I appreciate zzuuzz intervention. I believe that I was reversing disruptive editing in a matter that had no consensus. I believed there was possible sock puppetry going on to continually add a title that wasn't accurate without providing sources or demonstrating consensus to support adding the title. I didn't know how to report it or respond properly. It was a time sensitive issue and time has moved on and the matter is irrelevant now. I must say the exchange doesn't leave a great impression on a new user.Quadrow (talk) 11:25, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
