The user had clearly engaged in an edit war and violated 3RR after being warned. TSO1D (talk) 02:59, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
This revert war is very silly. Adapt the information to the rest of the article, unless you dispute the content itself. Bad grammar is not generally the case for blocking (although yes, 3RR is). Is this a content dispute, or a revert war over the elements of style? Elle vécut heureuse à jamais (Be eudaimonic!) 03:01, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

The user disputes mentioning certain facts in the article. He was shown several reliable sources confirming these claims, yet he continued to remove these sources from the article. Alæxis¿question? 13:46, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

As one can see here I asked first on talk page to provide official sources. I gave time them to provide them. They failed to provide official sources, then I removed the content lines. Instead, he used as a provocation not to provide sources and to engage in edit war with me. Then he reported me here. Wikipedia can't let false statements that are not backed up by reliable sources. I provided the official link from Constitution of Moldova, taken from Presidency of Moldova web site.Sambure talk 13:52, 24 November 2007 (UTC)
Not to mention the poor quality of his sources, they are taken from a website, e-democracy, they are old, because the previous laws have been ammendated in 2003. I provided the official, reliable, verifiable source taken from the site of Presidency of Moldova. What better official source can one ask?

There is a bit of a lag between the violation and now, but I've blocked him for 72 hours anyway, due to the recent history of revert-warring on the article. There is also a possibility that his recent absence is due only to the Thanksgiving weekend. -- tariqabjotu 14:56, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
I gave him some lag time since his violation in the hope that he may redeem himself or something without having to nominate him immediately each time he revert-wars.

The reverts were the result of a content conflict that should have been resolved by discussion, not by edit-warring.

The 3RR has been discussed on Patriotmissile's talk page within the last 24hours, and the editor has been editing wikipedia for about 6 months, so there is no reason to think that he was unaware of the 3RR.

from his talk page: Not all of the sources he added were of questionable verifiability. Though all the edits I saw were very POV. Perhaps now you can engage in dialogue with him about editing. Good luck. Please place another report at WP:AN/I if his edits are disruptive. Report to Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/3RR if he violates the Wikipedia:Three-revert rule. Please continue to involve other edits and to seek consensus as you have done. Cheers, :) Dlohcierekim 03:06, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Page protected until the nationalist edit warriors find peace with each other. We really need a Macedonia-style arbitration to shut down the East Asian conflicts. east.718 at 16:09, November 25, 2007
Regardless of what User:Sennen_goroshi claimed, I had no idea what 3RR actually stands for. I didn't even know that it is an acronym of 3 repeared revert (?). By the way, it was the User:Sennen_goroshi who reverted the content before the status where disputes have settled down by administrators in the South Korea article. And that's the reason why I converted it to the point where disputes were settled down by administrators. Please check who is talking truth. As can been seen from various remaining channels, including user talk:sennen goroshi, and his previous contributions, anyone can easily tell what he has done to the articles-related to South Korea.
User:Sennen_goroshi and his seemingly colleagues, user:Jjk82 and user:Keyngez has made myriad disruptive revisions on only the South Korea-related articles here in Wikipedia. I think deduced from their selection of id and words they said, they are seemingly Japanese people who hate South Korea. I also found the User:Sennen_goroshi has abused other Korean user. i do believe administrators will make fair decision for a better wikipedia and for ultimate spirit of free upload in Wikipedia.Patriotmissile (talk) 19:24, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Sennen goroshi's false accusation[edit]

First off, Patriotmissile has not violated 3RR. The reason why Sennen goroshi files this report because of his obvious anti-Korean sentiment and like this [[12]] and hatred feelings against me.

Judging by the above comments along with series of reports regarding his problematic edits, Sennen shows himself that he is not suitable person to contribute to Wikipedia. But he's ironically warned other people on the other side to which Sennen always conflicts.

He's never cared about the articles in which Patriotmissile and User:Jjk82 has engaged. I spotted User:Jjk82's disruptive behaviors yesterday. After closely checking on the references and links which User:Jjk82 provided and inserted on the almost 8 articles, I realized that most of them are duplicated bogus links. The seemingly external links turned out inner false wiki links which also JjK82 inserted and are not related to the main articles. Therefore, I reverted his edits and gave him warnings as other editors did to him. Today, Sennen was shadowing my edits so reverted some of my edits to User:Jjk82without any consensus to provoke me as he always does to me.

I believe Sennen goroshi is using my comment on Patriotmissle as a base to accuse of Patriotmissile violating the 3RR rule. Sadly for Sennen's attempt, by the time I left the comments on Patriotmissle, I didn't fully check on the revisions between User:Jjk82's and Patriotmissle's on the South Korean articles. Therefore, I left the wrong notice to calm down him faithfully dedicating to the articles. I have to apology to Patriotmissle for my wrong notice on the 3RR. Even if the Sennen goroshi's own rule and wish were applied to him, there should be mentioned along with User:Jjk82's disruptive edits at first. The editor was warned several times and even uploaded fake images of Seoul like image:Spaceball.gif. Anyone can check what User:Jjk82 and User:Sennen goroshi have done to the Korean related articles with their own issues on anti-Korean sentiments.

The report is even not in the required method. What an irony the person with serious Incivility issue and POV has been warning to everyone as if he were an admins. Please see closely to the case and the accuser's contribution history. The problem is that Sennen goroshi had been banned for his incivility and 3RR violation, but he doesn't even listen to other people's opinions and civil notices. He simply reverted the edits on his talk page [13], [14], [15], [16], but he's been overusing the civility card on contradictory to his behaviors. [17], [18], [19] [20], [21]

This is also references for better understanding. Sadly, Senne has been reported several times regarding his civility issue like leaking personal info and vandalizing for his revenge, but he's barely escaped from punishment. [22]

For the constructive Wikipedia, I think the disruptive behaviors of him should not be condoned any futhure. And Patriotmissile, please accept my apology to you. Thanks. --Appletrees (talk) 17:11, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Hi Appletrees, I think you don;t even have to apologize to me. I know you are a nice person and excellent Wikiuser. Please let's try to have horrible users disappeared as they deserve from Wikipedia.Patriotmissile (talk) 19:30, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
I will assume the above comment about "horrible users" does not refer to me. But in general, feel free to refer to edits as "horrible" ..well perhaps it would be more civil to refer to them as incorrect, but please don't use such terms to refer to users, "misinformed" might be a more civil term to use.Sennen goroshi (talk) 04:21, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

  • Diff of 3RR warning: [24]

Edgarde, along with another editor, is intent of running a smear campaign on a city in the Philippines. The Senate of the Philippines along with other law enforcement agencies have investigated these claims and found nothing. They ask for anyone with solid information to come forward. Despite this, a small number of people are trying to represent the fringe position that Angeles City is filled with pedophiles and sex slaves. Any attempt to put the actual verifiable facts from the governments of the Philippines and the UK above their fringe position is reverted. When material irrelevant to Human Trafficking in Angeles is removed it is also reverted back in. Edgarde is now soliciting help to revert to his POV. RodentofDeath (talk) 20:31, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Both sides are edit warring. Edgrade seems to me to have broken 3RR, while RodentofDeath doesn't seem to have technically done so, but is still clearly edit warring. I'd really rather see us pursue dispute resolution than have to give blocks, so I'm just going to watch the article. I will block any user who continues the edit war. Heimstern Läufer (talk) 21:23, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
If dispute resolution is already being pursued, can you be persuaded to give blocks now? Here 'tis: Wikipedia:Requests for comment/RodentofDeath. Have also requested peer review on the article, tho the article is changing radically so it won't amount to much. I'd request WP:30 or something, but considering recent Talk page discussion, RodentofDeath won't abide by any agreement. / edg 21:31, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
Given that both parties are edit warring, I could hardly be fair in blocking only one party. Heimstern Läufer (talk) 21:36, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

What do you mean, are you asking that both of you be blocked? TSO1D (talk) 21:53, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
I understand the need to be fair. WP:DR is a joke with RodentofDeath; he flaunts non-cooperation. And other editors will fix the article — even if RodentofDeath were blocked, I couldn't fix it anyway. / edg 21:59, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
lets hope the friends you are asking to "fix" the article (i.e. insert misleading and false information while burying the facts) discuss the edits before inserting errors AGAIN. 3 months and nobody at all had a problem with the article until errors were re-introduced into it.

User continuously reverts to a previous version made before hours of work were invested in improving the article and consistently ignores requests to discuss the edits.

Simon D M (Respondent) reverted to last version by an administrator before the page was ransacked: mass removal of sourced material, replacement of neutral wording with POV wording and reorganisation of page by Complainant along lines for which there is no consensus. All the warnings were deserved and this can be proven, starting with provocative linking to off-site harrassment by Complainant's co-religionists of Respondent here. See the talk page for the supposed unwillingness to discuss, Respondent has discussed endlessly with Complaiant who has asserted the right to push his POV without supporting evidence. The page has been locked in the reverted state providing an opportunity for dispute resolution. Respondent has suggested mediation. --Simon D M (talk) 18:52, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

  • Diff of 3RR warning: 20.55 (as I just discovered the 4th violation).

Kkrystian has been engaging in edit-warring on the article and related articles for some time now. This particular incident relates to the remoal of reliably sourced information about the article subject's personal behaviour, which Kkrystian disagrees with on account of his personal devotion to the subject in his real life. Potential conflict-of-interest issue here.

I also informed this user to discuss his changes on the talk-page (diff1, diff2, but user ignores requests for discussion and continues to revert back to his preferred version, removing reliably-sourced information. Other editors have also expressed dissatisfaction with the user's behaviour (diff1, diff2). - Ekantik talk 21:04, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

The 3RR warning is supposed to come before the violation. The purpose of that is to ensure that the editor is aware of the three-revert rule when s/he violates it. However, I'm not convinced that Kkrystian, having been an editor for over a year, is unaware of the three-revert rule. -- tariqabjotu 23:16, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Sorry I didn't put the times but they are all within 1h of each other.

Warning: Not needed: see edit comment Ignoring WP:3RR per WP:IGNORE & WP:BOLD as removal of this discussion from the talk page is borderline vandalism. I'm willing to take the block on this if necessary

User has apparently decided that they are able to ignore 3RR - see edit comments and [32]. This is in the context of "discussion" being spammed onto 2 pages William M. Connolley (talk) 22:22, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

This took place after the user said he would respect the decision made, though he did not agree with it. He now is taking this on as a personal crusade. --G2bambino (talk) 00:59, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

I second these charges - TharkunColl went back on his word & made disruptive edits. GoodDay (talk) 01:11, 27 November 2007 (UTC)
It is clear that multiple users are guilty of edit warring here. Though technically Thark violated 3RR, I will not impose a block since the page has already been protected against moves and blocks are not meant to be punitive but to prevent further edit warring. Finally I would like to say that no consensus had been reached for the move, as others have pointed out, a simple majority is not the same as consensus. Please continue to discuss the issue instead of acting without consensus. TSO1D (talk) 01:42, 27 November 2007 (UTC)
If I may comment as an observer, I see this (the antics of these two) in my watchlist all of the time and I have been driven to rarely or never edit at the pages in which it happens. I think that's testament to enough is enough. Charles 20:13, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

The editor User:Kkrystian is editing Wikipedia since 13:08, 11 October 2006. Thus is not new to wikipedia.

The editor has removed the info as s/he feels it is "SUBJECTIVE(POV)". The editor has removed the same sourced information before. [40][41][42] etc . as early as [43][44]. The editor has been edit warring with User:Andries on the same issue. The removal of the sourced matter is a violation of WP:NPOV too.

This user keeps readding bolded acronyms for systems releases when they only differ by one date. I asked him to add it in the article as prose, but he insists he's right. Similarly, asking for a comparison article got nothing, and he openly expresses that he'll revert war in the last diff. — Someguy0830 (T | C) 11:07, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

  • No technical violation; I count only two reverts at the Cruxshadows article. Disengages from edit warring after second revert. No action warranted at this time. —C.Fred (talk) 18:55, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

The user ignores stylistic elements of a music genre and added POV to the article. --Breathtaker (talk) 18:41, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

  • However, this user provided citations to back up the assertion. This report is a tit-for-tat after the above report and, looking at diffs, is the more groundless of the two. I see no need for action to Dr who1975 at this time. —C.Fred (talk) 18:47, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

  • Necessary for newer users: A diff of 3RR warning issued before the last reported reversion.

Your report will be ignored if it is not placed properly.

Outside of this 3rr violation, whic by the way is the second on record http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log&type=block&page=User:Avfnx I believe he is using a sockpuppet which is user http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Dominiman CubanoDios (talk) 19:11, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Regarding the sock claim, it may be a good idea to open a case at WP:SSP and present any evidence there as I cannot tell straight off from looking at both user's contributions. Thanks. Tbo 157(talk) 19:56, 27 November 2007 (UTC)
