Time reported: 06:35, 10 August 2008 (UTC)


This is a bad faith report because I simply was doing housekeeping to use the version that was a result of a 13 day talk page discussion. The accusing user and his friend keeps reverting it to a non-consensus version that has opposition, WP:LEAD violations, and bad prose problems. I have ceased editing it and let them have their own way but I have asked an administrator to help resolve this. I am for discussion and compromise but the accuser unfortunately is not. Maybe this admin will help us (but he is going to sleep now).

Also note that there was no warning. The warning reported is just a generic one that is old. Presumptive (talk) 06:49, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

You have been warned in the past. You know about 3RR violations. Your "adopter" even warned you about it. Instead, you decided to muscle your revisions through no matter the group of editors that disagreed with you. While I have tried to engage in discussion about your changes, you continue to trumpet your one-man consensus revisions in the face of everyone else. -- Veggy (talk) 06:54, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
You reverted without discussion so if you are calling for punishment, you should receive it, VegitaU. What are you complaining about because I have let you win and let you have your way even though the 13-14 day discussion of the 7 lead sentence versions have few comments from you. If you and IceColdBeer are complaining, you should have discussed it. Even now, you fail to discuss and compromise, just nag until others let you have your way. Please join me in discussion and compromise. I have already let you have your way and let the matter go for now. Presumptive (talk) 07:01, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
My adopter has said that I am right. I even let you have your way even though your reverts have no consensus. Presumptive (talk) 07:03, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
As I said, I have tried to engage in discussion. Please, Presumptive, click on the links of my reply above. You can't claim that I am failing to engage in discussion when there is undeniable evidence that I have been. -- Veggy (talk) 07:07, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
Addendum: Edit summaries like this really invite discussion. -- Veggy (talk) 07:11, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Not really. It doesn't matter to me who the users in question are. I'm commenting because I was about to remove an AIV report before but someone else beat me to it. Enigma message 07:05, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
I'm not sure if this helps, but another user posted the same 3RR complaint[8] but removed it because it was a duplicate of this one. Also, I edit-conflicted with Veggy's report while trying to post my own report. Ice Cold Beer (talk) 07:08, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

User was clearly aware of 3RR, but none of the reverts are massively obnoxious. I'll let him off with a warning, as it's all rather complicated and he may not have been aware he was near 3RR. Moreschi (talk) (debate)
Repsonse

This is a bad report. The talk page consensus was to keep a table in the article. My edits were restorations of continued removal by User:Jim Furtado after the discussion. I'll probably have more after going through the diffs provided. This user is not acting in good faith. He is being dishonest with the facts. He has accused me of vandalism, sock-puppetry, and racism. --Elliskev 12:54, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

The "consensus" were mostly of newly created acounts and an ip adress and they all just happen to agree with him and they all just happen to post imediately after he had posted on the discussion page, so most likely they are sock puppets of someone, and the graph in it self is by deafult racist. And I never for one second called him a racist, only the graph it is User:Elliskev that is dishonest as always with the facts Jim Furtado (talk) 00:01, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
I interpreted your claim that the graph is "racist" as an implication that I was supporting a "racist" graph, and by extension, that you were implying that I am a racist. I will accept you at your word that it wasn't your intent. --Elliskev 00:26, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
Follow-up after reviewing diffs
This is an article with lots and lots of changes happening very quickly.
The first pair of diffs... I don't know what those are. They aren't my edits.
In the second grouping of diffs provided:
    • The first diff was a removal of text supported by this discussion.
    • The second diff provided was restoring the table referenced above (the first time).
    • The third diff provided is not presented correctly. That wasn't my edit. it is two consecutive edits, one by me and another by another editor. – this edit and my edit which is clearly undoing vandalism.
    • Finally, the fourth diff was my second restoring of the table. This was immediately followed-up with my taking the issue to the talk page (the discussion referenced above) in which I specifically said I would not restore it again. Someone else restored it after there was adequate discussion.
Since then User:Jim Furtado has continued to try to remove if with dishonest edit summaries claiming that the discussion supported removal or that restoration was "sneaky vandalism". I left him a message on his talk, which he deleted. I have since brought the discussion back to the article talk page. I think I have done everything to act in good faith. I have been patient with Jim Furtado in his unfounded accusations, but this is just going to far. --Elliskev 13:29, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
User:Elliskev was aware that he had broken the 3rr rule, and was warned but continues to ignore the fact and has now has made an illegally edit, trying to change the the outcome of the response. Obviously he has no respect for wikipedia rules, since he most likely created several sock puppet accounts that just happen to agree with him and were created as soon as he had posted on the discussion page. And I never for one second claimed it was supported on the discussion page all I wrote was look on the discussion page. And I have been EXTREMLY patient with [[User:Elliskev)) but he clearly has no respect for the Wikipedia rules as his edits and dishonesty proves. Jim Furtado (talk) 23:54, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
