Although technically just outside the 24 hour period, The user has shown ZERO willingness to talk, there is NO reason to assume anythign will change unless the user is forced to. Further, please note this, where he tried to violate me for 3RR. His edit has been reverted by two users, and his actions addressed by more. Thank you.ThuranX 20:10, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Edits are disruptive enough to warrant a block despite the 4 reverts lying within a 25h instead of a 24h period. Signaturebrendel 22:07, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

User has reverted 3 admins closing the MfD. I also request a rereview of #User:Ned Scott reported by User:White Cat (Result: No block) on this page. User has "recreated" a page deleted bu five different admins. -- Cat chi? 01:47, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

What are you up to, Cat? Do you see why some may find this whole username change obnoxious? You have changed many of your old signatures (albeit to have those changes reverted). You bring this up at WP:ANI. It went to WP:MFD. It came here, to WP:ANI/3RR. I rejected your previous 3RR piece here. And made a note of my rejection at WP:ANI. The MfD has been closed. And protected. Your old userpage has been deleted. And protected from recreation. And now it's back here, at WP:ANI/3RR (without you even bothering to modify the timestamps). What more do you want, Cat? Do you want a hand-written apology from Ned? Ned tarred and feathered in the town square? You seem to have gotten most of what you asked for, save retribution. Shall I give you retribution? No, the purpose of blocking is prevention, not punishment; you will have to suffice with just your victory. As the previous reviewer, I perhaps should ignore this request and let another admin handle it. But I cannot in my good conscience let you waste yet another admin's time with this ordeal. Your username has been changed, your old userpage deleted. That's a wrap; time to move on. -- tariqabjotu 23:45, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
Ned Scott has waisted everyones time. I question your objectivity in reviewing the past and this 3rr case since you clearly are an involved party. Ned Scott continued to disrupt due to your last review.

As he/she removes the citation in each edit, he/she indeed has conducted more than 3 reverts.

The user is edit warring with multiple editors.

Lsi john 03:05, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Not 3RR violation

This user seems to habitually want to get me blocked, and it is inappropriate. A simple review of the DIFFs and a perusal of the article's history itself will see that I have provided context for the citation, and in addition to that I will not revert this information again. I have changed the nature in which the citation is given. These are in fact not "6" reverts, but if anything 3, which I apologize for, but sourced citations were being removed from the article. In any event, as the context has been given for the citation appropriately, there will be no more reverts for that. Whether or not User:Lsi john will continue to edit war on that article is irrelevant, for I will not be a party to it. Smee 03:35, 30 May 2007 (UTC).

  • User:Lsi john does not seem to understand, I changed his original research tag which was laid over the whole entire article, instead to the one word that he had a problem with "psychological", and by the way, this was not a revert. However, if someone thinks that my changing of his tagging as OR the entire article, to the only word that he has an issue with "psychological" was some kind of revert, I will be more than happy to self-revert that. I will continue to not revert this user anymore on this article, as I have stated above. Smee 04:17, 30 May 2007 (UTC).
    • SELF REVERT, As stated above, I do not wish to revert this user on this article at all, and will not in the future. Evidently he feels that my changing his tagging of the entire article as OR, to the one word that he thinks is OR, was a revert, so I have Self-Reverted here, and will not revert this user. Smee 04:35, 30 May 2007 (UTC).
I agree that this is not a WP:3RR edit war situation, Diff This diff shows Smee is not the only editor who believes the source is valid.
[5] Justanother's rationale doesn't make sense: (The idea that we would list where a term is referenced in other books and articles is unencyclopedic, adds nothing, and I will stop just short of saying it is silly.) To the contrary mentioning the use of LGAT in textbooks discussing the issue is quite encyclopedic and adds relevance to the term/article.
[6] Lsi john doesn't explain how the reference doesn't match either in his edit summary or on the talk page.
[7] Lsi john repeats his last action.
[8] Lsi john appears to have forgotten that the article is about LGATs in general, since he earlier appeared to feel that singling out Landmark in the article was unfair given all the LGATs out there. Talk:Large Group Awareness Training#Landmark in LEAD
At best this is a misunderstanding of the WP:3RR rule by Lsi john, at worst a pattern of WP:HARASS which could be forming here. Anynobody 04:47, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Page protected[edit]

Since both of you have been having disputes over the page since quite a long time, the only appropriate course of action would be to protect the page while the parties can discuss and resolve dispute on the talk page of the article. The article protection duration is of 48 hours. — Nearly Headless Nick {C} 05:11, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

This is not the same article as previous reports. This is a problem with the editor, not the article. Smee followed me to Who Is Guru Maharaj Ji? (book) as well and is picking at my edits (check the edit logs there). I agree with Anynobody, I'm not sure I understand 3RR at all, when 7RR isn't a violation. I'm not warring, I'm only 2RR there.Lsi john 05:21, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
Pattern of abuse by Smee (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) (formerly Smeelgova (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log).

This is about a long-term pattern of abuse, tendentious editing, and ownership of articles. Smee merrily went 3 reverts with me over my thought-out edit that contributed to the article and then merrily continued edit-warring with one, perhaps two, other editors. This is not about the article; this is about one editor that refuses to "get it" despite multiple blocks. When Smee is invested in an article, no-one with an "opposing" POV to her "cult-fighter" persona (or a neutral POV for that matter, or often even a more reasonable editor with views closer to hers, like User:Wikipediatrix or User:BTfromLA) is allowed to edit there. This has to be addressed. Please, Mr. Admins, do your job. Page protection will handle nothing. This is about a pattern by one POV-pushing editor, User:Smee. --Justanother 10:39, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Smee (formerly Smeelgova) at work; WP:OWN; WP:BITE[edit]

  • New user makes a nice edit in an unsourced section.
  • User:Smee (formerly User:Smeelgova) reverts with edit summary "rvv" and then "welcomes" the newbie with a vandalism warning. --Justanother 12:03, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
    • The User has just received a more friendly welcome message from myself. The edit was indeed non-vandalism.
    • But. The larger concern here is that mutually reinforcing vendettas and contribution stalking may be developing between Smee and other editors, which has more damage potential than a fourth revert. Should this be taken to another forum? User conduct RfCs are procedurally dreadful, but some mediation appears needed. I would say that the "not an entitlement" aspect of 3RR seems to be lost on Smee. Marskell 12:15, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
  • There seems to be more evidence of retaliatory behavior against User:Jossi on WP:COIN. - Crockspot 12:28, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

      • Smee has been WP:BITING me since I arrived. But my complaints have been pushed aside in Good-Faith assumptions about this edit warrier. Lsi john 12:33, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
I have posted a timeline of the 3RR pattern here for anyone who wants the tedious task of observing time stamps and dates and seeing the pattern. Smee wasn't 4RR. Smee was 7RR and I was 2RR. The only 3RR block that I've ever had, came over 24 hours AFTER I had Stopped editing in an article (clearly punitive). Yet Smee has been blocked 5 times and still continually avoids preventative 3RR blocks. I'm beginning to wonder what the 3RR rule is for. Lsi john 12:33, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
I have ended the discussion on WP:COIN. This is troubling editing behaviour. Marskell 12:50, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

User refuses to use talk, relies upon OR determinations of popularity, and in his last conflict, offered to 'bust a cap' in the next person who argued with him. I didn't give a 3RR warning, but he's not a newer user, and his stubborn insistence along the WP:ILIKEIT line makes him unlikely to change. As such, a block's definitely needed. I got so frustrated, I vio'd 3RR myself, but immediately self-reverted. However, he needs to stop. ThuranX 04:17, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

I have added a 5th revert, just outside of the 24 hour mark, and without him signing in. However, signature phrases in his argument' very camp', arguments to recentism, and genreal comments regaring Two-face being a serious character indicate it's the same editor, tryign to WP:GAME 3RR. I can go through a checkuser if needed, please let me know at my talk. ThuranX 04:43, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

I have now added a 6th revert in this slow boil. He's been reverted and on contact with another editor, User:DrBat, and hasn't listened to that editor either. Please put a halt to this. He violated 3RR, and got nothing, and continues to revert war despite opposition. ThuranX 23:12, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

  • And yet no one warned him? I am personally unwilling to block editors if I think they may not be aware of the rule, so I've just left a warning. If another admin is willing to block, OK. Heimstern Läufer (talk) 06:09, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
Warnings are NOT required for non-new users, for one, and for two, given his lack of intent to use talk pages, nor respond to interactions from others, I doubt it's effectiveness anyway. ThuranX 20:16, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

He has also just personally attacked me, implying that I dont even have a medium intelligence level: [15].Azerbaijani 18:10, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

I did not make revert - I added information with NEW supplementary references and made minor fixes. And I did not insult - what you implied it is up to you. Diffs can be checked. And speaking frankly you going after me and reporting is close to Wiki harassment. --Dacy69 22:23, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Thats still a revert. You've been on Wikipedia for a long time, you know the rules. Dacy69 knows the rules, do not let him mislead you. You reverted all three times, it doesnt matter if you added anything, it still a revert. You cant hide reverts by adding information on top of the revert. The historical section was removed three times, along with Babak, and you re-inserted it three times...Thats called a revert. You clearly violated your parole, just admit it.Azerbaijani 22:26, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
It was not - if text is removed and I am coming to reintroduce it with new references and new text - it is not revert. That is clear.

Wikipedia rules clearly state: A revert, in this context, means undoing, in whole or in part, the actions of another editor or of other editors. This can include undoing edits to a page, undoing page moves (sometimes called "move warring"), undoing administrative actions (sometimes called "wheel warring"), or recreating a page.[19]. You cant make excuses for clearly violating your parole.Azerbaijani 22:36, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
Three reverts in two days do not constitute a violation of the 3RR. Yet, there seems to be a rather slow edit war in progress on this article. I have not issued a block but advise both parties to use the talk page instead of edit warring-even if it is at a crawling pace. Signaturebrendel 22:46, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

While just a bit over 24 hours and only consisting of three precise reverts...3RR is not an entitlement...

I object to this report because it singles me out when Mongo himself has reverted three times, as well, for his POV in this edit conflict with me and several other editors. Indeed many of us have (which I agree is not a good thing) however, if you look at the talk page, I have been the most active trying for forge a consensus and stop the edit conflicts, asking people to please talk about it instead of just reverting blindly. For Mongo to revert 3 times himself yet try to get me blocked for doing the same thing seems to me to amount to trying to gain an advantage in the edit conflict. That is not what this place is for. I have not violated the 3RR as he admits, and if I should not have reverted 3 times, he should not have either, nor the many other editors in this latest edit conflict. I should not be singled out, esp. since I did not violate the 3RR rule.

Mongo's 4 reverts, just over 24 hours based on repeated efforts to force his POV into the article over concensus (actually consensus is split):

That is probably best. I don't like "trying" to get someone blocked for 3RR, but while I stopped my very short lived edit war, which was also with an IP trying to add the same stuff Giovanni was, Giovanni has persisted and he was at 3RR on the same article just a few days ago.--MONGO 21:21, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

We're Back!

Earlier today 7RR didn't earn a block. So Smee has decided that he can revert war in Holiday Magic and Children of God now too.

This contentious editor has a LONG HISTORY of edit warring, and seems to love to revert everything I do.

He has been blocked by this board 5 times already as Smeelgova (talk '· contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) and Smee (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log).

He's now at 3RR in TWO articles.. which IS a violation, since Smee keeps pushing the limit.

The last time, the admistrator assured me that Smee would 'take the warning'.. but that clearly has not happened.

note to admin: PLEASE scroll up and read the 7RR report above, including the previous 3RR timeline: here

The last block was for 48 hours.

It doesn't matter what article I edit, Smee is going to revert everything I do until I hit 2RR and have to stop.

Lsi john 20:45, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Blocked for three days, less for his most recent reverts and more for a troubling pattern of repeated reverting in general. See Smee's user talk for further explanation. Marskell 22:39, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

The article has gone through significant change since this revision due to the recent name change, but the reverts he's pushing were present in that revision, as well as more recent revisions (that was an easy recent one to find since he had made one of the reverts in that revision as well). The changes might seem small, but are especially controversial (especially revert 3 and 4).

  • 3RR warning: Been blocked for 3RR, incivility, and personal attacks multiple times, 3RR specifically for three times since 1 March. Last time was a week long block for repeated 3RR violations starting on May 15. Since coming off this block, he is evidently still intent on edit warring, blowing right past the 3RR limits as well as continuing the personal attacks (eg here).

Third "revert" isn't, I can't find the text "and administered" in any earlier version. That would indicate this is a new edit, not a revert. Seraphimblade Talk to me 04:43, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, here's the diff he was undoing. Per consensus we had discussed that "administered" was too strong a word on one side awhile back so we replaced it, but he undid this diff effectively by reinserting the word administered. --Cheers, Komdori 04:57, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
