  • User:EaZyZ99 seems to be obsessed with inserting an alleged self-picture of his or her shaved vulva into the Vulva article. S/he has edited under the IP address User:69.245.221.209 in an attempt to avoid 3RR enforcement. I'd block them myself, but since I have been involved in this recent series of reverts, I decided it was more conservative to simply report them here and let other admins make the call.

  • Blocked user and IP sock for 24 hr. Vsmith 14:31, 8 December 2005 (UTC)
  • ~20 reverts of same item in the period December 7-16. More before that. Apparently aware of the rules, but insistant on breaking them. Previous 24h block ineffective at changing behavior. Revets on different days don't count 3RR. What is the next step in dealing with this problem? ike9898 20:05, 17 December 2005 (UTC)

Three revert rule violation on Katyń massacre (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views). Ghirlandajo (talk · contribs):

Comments:

  • As I can be considered a party to this dispute, I don't want to block him myself. Besides, I am not an expert in judging how serious a 3RR violation is. I'd recommend a short block (about 3h, perhaps) meant to cool him down and realize that further breaking of 3RR is not wise.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 13:42, 8 December 2005 (UTC)
    • Nonsense. The first edit was not a revert but contribution of new stuff which never appeared in the article before. The fourth edit was completely out of line with the previous ones and was intended to fend off a dubious comment by a stray editor. So it makes two reverts instead of four. Even if someone thinks that techinically it is a 3RR violation, it was not intended to spawn edit wars and I have no intention to edit the page any more either today or in the nearest future. --Ghirlandajo 14:01, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

There were no 3RR violation here. Please do not waste other people's time to report the 3RR that were not. That said, I take no position at the article's content dispute. --Irpen 15:26, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

I rechecked and I stand by my statement that there was no 3RR violation here. --Irpen 21:25, 8 December 2005 (UTC)
In that case I apologise. It was the first 3RR I have ever reported and I guess I was somewhat unclear on reverts versus edit. Ghirlandajo insterted specific information four times, but I see now that the first insertion does not count as a revert. Still this doesn't change the fact that it would be beneficial if some neutral party would warn him that his actions (revets) are not the best choice he could have made.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 22:56, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

If Piotrus resorts to such dirty tricks as above to further his recent anti-Ghirlandajo quest, I may point out that his friend Halibutt violated 3RR more than once in my experience of conversing with him. Every time he went unpunished. It's time to put an end to such an impunity. --Ghirlandajo 14:11, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

Please report current violations, not two month old histories. Vsmith 14:22, 8 December 2005 (UTC)
While Ghirlandajo's late reporting seems a bit close to proving a point, he is right to point out that quite often a double standard is being applied about 3RR violations. --Thorsten1 15:50, 8 December 2005 (UTC)
Not every 3RR violation is reported and of these reported not every is "punished". This is left to administrator's discretion. It's not a question of double standards. --Lysy (talk) 18:03, 8 December 2005 (UTC)
This old 3RR violation was unpunished because I chose not to report it at that time as a courtesy to the editor, that's all. Unfortunately, it had little effect on the future editing of this article but that statute of limitations on that one is probably indeed expired. --Irpen 21:33, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

In any event he has been warned of WP:3RR on both his talk page and on my final revert before his 4th revert.

  • My allegiance to Prem Rawat is openly stated on my user page. In the spirit of disclosure, please also note that Andries is a vocal critic of Prem Rawat, colludes with a small group of critics to push their POV in Wikipedia articles. Andries is an ex-follower of Satya Sai Baba and a self-declared POV pusher [24], and avdocate against gurus . ≈ jossi fresco ≈ t@ 17:34, 10 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Please note that the last and only time that I was blocked from Wikipedia was on the same subject i.e. Prem Rawat in a dispute with the same person, User:Jossifresco. And the person who blocked me, user:Geni, started editing the article as proposed by me and disputed by user:Jossifresco on the talk page. (moving stuff to Wikiquote). I would love to be blocked again in such a way. Andries 19:08, 10 December 2005 (UTC)
  • The article in question has now been blocked due to ongoing revert wars by opposing factions, but not by me anymore. The problem is that there is nothing to discuss anymore. Everything has been discussed ad nauseam and factions continue to disagree. Dispute resolutions have not helped either. Andries 22:06, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

SCZenz, I've just blocked him for 24 hours. If you disagree, I'll be fine if you undo it. I blocked before I saw your message. SlimVirgin (talk) 19:30, 10 December 2005 (UTC)
I recognize this was a judgement call and appreciate your willingness to accept an unblock, which I will in fact do now. My logic (as above) is that he didn't continue to edit Jimmy Flinn after his recent round of warnings. However, I'll leave another message on his talk page and warn that the next blanking, image removal, or copyright info removal he does outside of process will result in a block. -- SCZenz 19:34, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

This is user:Zero0000 2nd violation in short time in editing aricles abou the history Of the Israeli Palestinian conflict. He was able to talk his way out of the first one (not sure as it was an obvious violation with 5 times) : [30]

The discussion about these edit was on a diffrenet page Talk:Hebron_massacre as this page is a disambiguation page refering those who search for Hebron massacre to: Riots in Palestine of 1929 Reported by Zeq 07:32, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

Reply:

Zeq has still not learned what a revert is. The first edit was not a revert but a rephrasing of new text in a form that had not existed before. That is, it was a perfectly normal edit. --Zero 08:37, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

This is true, but it would probably be wiser to discuss your edits instead of reverting even just three times, or attempt a compromise. Edit wars are lame, okay?--Sean|Black 08:49, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

Reply to the "reply:" Again Zero tries to talk his way out of a 3RR revert. The deletion of the word "ethnic cleansing" is a clear revert: The word was not there, it was inserted by another editor (me) and Zero Deleted it 4 times. The diff s are very clear. This is his 2nd violaion in short time. Zeq 08:50, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

No. A revert is an edit that goes back to a previous version of the article. Zero has not done that over three times.--Sean|Black 08:52, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
No. This is not what Revert is (but you are making a common misconception) Here is quote: "This (rule) states that if we revert to a previous version of a page (in whole or in part, which can mean as little as one word in some circumstances), we may be blocked from editing for up to 24 hours. See Wikipedia:Three revert rule for more details. SlimVirgin (talk) 20:42, 4 October 2005 (UTC) " Zeq 09:30, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
Indeed, if a revert combined with an edit is not a revert, it would mean that the 3RR may be easily circumvented by combining reverts with edits. Can anyone clear this matter out please? --Heptor 20:42, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
PS: I don't think Zero should actually be blocked for 24 hours, as WP:3RR#Enforcement may suggest, it would be too far-fetched, but it should be made clear that such behavior is not permitted on Wikipedia. --Heptor 20:53, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
I'm not blocking him (he stopped), but my point was that the first "revert" was Zero refactoring new text, which is not a revert. He then reverted to that version three times.--Sean|Black 00:28, 13 December 2005 (UTC)
I reviewed the first edit in question again, I am no longer sure if it may be counted as a revert myself... Certainly a borderline case, but not a clear revert. --Heptor 02:09, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

What is your problem???
Those edits were made because you kept on reverting my edits and accusing me of being another IP address. You've been registered for two days, and almost all your edits are you out to get me.
I'll just repaste my previous comment to you concerning the 'dodging ban bit' from the Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Incidents of the same topic:
The mentioned user (who you think I am) once changed the cover of Catwoman #1 (which I uploaded) to #46 (a hughes picture which I didn't want, and reverted). You can also check out the Catwoman article and talk page to see how I was adamant in not having Hughes images, and having the first issue of the new volume. Then why would I make an edit removing the #1 image and replace it with one of the Hughes images? Do I suffer from multiple personality disorder or something? And why would I even try evading the ban in the first place if it was for only 24 hours? That's like a guy being in jail for a week, escaping, and being put back for a year. Common sense.

  • Well, to make it official, I added the links above. These are four straight-up reversions - very angry reversions at that. To say I was committing vandalism is laughable. It seems that the fuss was all about some exceedingly minor formatting, which I offered to fix if he had just calmly described it. -- Netoholic @ 07:10, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
    My talk page demonstrates that you are aware of the problems you've caused by "fixing" the structure of the template. Have you remedied these problems? No. You've simply persisted to commit the same changes without preserving the template's formatting. You are knowingly negatively editing a popular template. You are committing vandalism. Adraeus 07:18, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
    My edits were to correct the poor formatting I saw (bad wikitable mark-up, excessive whitespace, and failure to adhere to WP:AUM). The template worked perfectly and looked better after each of my edits. Too bad you broke 3RR before you even told me what you thought was wrong with my version, which turns out to be a difference of inconsequential formatting. -- Netoholic @ 07:30, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
It doesn't matter why you edit warred. We have ways of dealing with that. Take it to WP:DR. Your incivility here and in the edit summaries is also unacceptable, and this seems to be a pattern. Just don't. Blocked for 24 hours. Dmcdevit·t 07:36, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

  • Is ignoring talk page, saying that Muslims do not deserve NPOV, and arguing that all Chechens are Jihadists User:Absent is a highly biased userpage, and he clearly states in each of his WP contributions that he hates Islam, and is trying to advance his agenda. Wouldn't mind seeing him blocked, since he hasn't yet contributed a single word that hasn't been reverted as vandalism.
    • Although 3RR was linked to in the edit summary, I don't think this new user was sufficiently warned about the policy. I'm warning him in his talk page explicitly now, with any luck that might settle it. — Asbestos | Talk (RFC) 22:13, 13 December 2005 (UTC)
      • Please note that he has now reverted Anders_Fogh_Rasmussen 6 times in the past 24 hours, now claiming that "all Muslim countries" called for the death of the Danish leader, and imposed sanctions on the country.[51] (patently untrue, several ambassadors sent a note requesting an apology).

I don't see where the problem is. For whatever reason user Stanley Ipkiss reverted my changes (and he also broke the 3 revert rule though it seems he goes unpunished). He finally saw my source for the changes and agreed to leave the article in my version. Yamla reverted it on principal despite the fact that there is no longer a conflict.

These aren't just reverts and one should also note Jiang reverted me first before I removed his controversial insertions. Those exceptions that Jiang talks about is me compromising where it made sense, but leaving out what is too controversial to just leave in there without Jiang obtaining consensus first. Several of Jiang's insertions were brought up on the talk page but since consensus has not been obtained, I do not see why he should be able to just go ahead an insert. I enourage those concerned to take a look at subtance of the talk and the evolution of the edits. There is no knee-jerk reverting going on here, except by Blueshirts, who by his own user page appears to be quite partisan.Moveapage 20:28, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

There are reverts by the other main edit warriors: Tina M. Barber (talk · contribs) and 206.53.197.12 (talk · contribs).

These users seem to be putting the article back to the old viewpoint via cut and paste or retyping into specific sections - basically reverting the article the hard way.

I'm hesitant to suggest that the admins block a user on one side of an argument without blocking the other, but the diffs are not clear cut for the other side of the dispute. It is just not as clear for them.

Reported by: PurplePlatypus

Comments:

  • User keeps adding material to Supergirl regarding said character's powers (a total of seven times now I beleive, five of them documented above) which, besides now being a 3RR violation, is not even vaguely NPOV, also violates WP:NOR, and directly contradicts facts clearly stated in recent issues of her comic series. (They're also rather poorly written, for whatever that's worth). Four different editors including myself have reverted these changes at least once, and not one has said anything in support of them. User has ignored two warnings on his talk page (note - these concerned the other policies he was violating, since it was not obvious at the time that he would violate 3RR, though the second one does hint at 3RR as well). User has not made the slightest attempt to seek consensus or compromise. PurplePlatypus 05:43, 16 December 2005 (UTC)
    • User has continued all of the above behaviour unabated, with no attempt at discussion. Will post further links soon if it continues with no action taken. I will say the user has greatly improved the wording of the addition he keeps making, but there were many problems with it and that was almost the least of them. The fact remains that it violates all three of the key policies (neutrality, NOR and verifiability), 3RR (twice over now, I think), and the user is making little or no attempt to find consensus.

User:R. fiend[edit]

I'm not sure what format to follow, since I'm not reporting a 3RR violation. I'm reporting a block for a 3RR violation, which I think was made in error. User:Essjay left Wikipedia recently, after people (including myself) voted to delete the Catholic Church of Wikipedia (which he had put a lot of work into). He announced that he would not be back. His user page is on my watchlist, so I have just seen this, where he says that he is not coming back, but in case anyone has seen the block log, he wants to explain that he had been reading an article and had "noticed a 3RR that hadn't been acted on". I looked at the block log, and found that it was User:R. fiend that he had blocked, for "3RR @ John Seigenthaler Sr. Wikipedia biography controversy". I looked at the history of that page, and found three reverts from R. fiend, not four. (Unless I'm missing something.) It doesn't seem to have been reported here, with diffs, and no message was left on R. fiend's talk page. (Well, I've just left one.) I'm a fairly new admin, and don't want to jump in and unblock someone that another admin has blocked, so I'd appreciate advice from someone more experienced. Thanks. AnnH (talk) 22:18, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

I'm certainly not "more experienced", as I almost never use blocks, but I personally think you'd be ok to unblock. As a general rule, if there's no clear explanation for the block, I'd say it can be undone. Obviously, asking the blocking admin would be nice, but he's gone. At any rate, a block without a notification to the blocked user is certainly wrong. Friday (talk) 22:30, 16 December 2005 (UTC)
It's not a 3RR violation. I can see how confusion could have arisen, but I cannot construe that set of edits as a revert. I am unblocking. [[Sam Korn]] 22:34, 16 December 2005 (UTC)
I certainly don't think the block was made in error, and I definitely think the renewed 3RR should stand. The block itself was done with due diligence, and I know if I had performed the block with someone undoing it, I would have appreciated a little note on my talk page saying so - this is just common courtesy. The fact that Essjay performed the block after leaving Wikipedia has nothing to do with whether it is a valid or invalid block. In fact, I don't think the interpreted context behind his departure should have been brought up here. It simply isn't relevant. If anything, here is Essjay's justification for his actions, which is thorough and more than adequate. When it was absent, why didn't anyone here ask Essjay directly about it first? Yes, he had announced that he left Wikipedia, but even so, it is not an excuse - it only makes sense to have followed up with him directly, instead of posting here first. Wouldn't we think automatically that an administrator would be responsible enough to follow through with his blocking in an appropriate manner? Granted, the concerns were valid, but not addressed properly. Anyway, I am going back to my holiday shopping. --HappyCamper 05:41, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
HappyCamper, you say that the fact that he performed the block after leaving Wikipedia has nothing to do with whether it's valid or invalid. That's true, and an examination of the diffs shows that it was invalid, since he was counting the first edit as a revert. However, the fact that he has left Wikipedia has a lot to do with the fact that he was not notified at the time. I have now notified him, but it took a long time to write my message, and he may never read it. It's the first time that I have ever undone another administrator's action, and I would certainly normally leave a message. But after blocking R. fiend, he put a message on his talk page saying, I am not back, and I will not be coming back (emphasis his). [80] AnnH (talk) 21:05, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
You'd think he'd be responsible enough to follow thru. Sadly, this did not happen until after it was posted here. Nobody has any right to complain about follow-thru, in my opinion. A user who's announced their leaving has no right to expect further communication. Friday (talk) 06:03, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
Wrong. It is hoped that one aims for the extra effort, always. And I would expect you to be a bit more 'responsible' with the manner in which you nuance your tone. This understated aggression is most peculiar (no, not on my part). El_C 10:37, 17 December 2005 (UTC)

I unblocked almost simultaneously with Sam. (Thanks, Sam and Friday, for responding so quickly.) Essjay has now renewed the block; in fact, he has increased it to 36 hours because of the use of rollback.[81] He also left a note on my page, on Sam's and on R. fiend's, plus a statements on his own pages about how a minor admin act of his had brought "heavy criticism" [82] and [83]. I'm very happy to discuss this with Essjay, and would not have unblocked without informing him if it had not been for his announcement that he would not be back. I'm still not happy with this block, but am leaving for work in the next few minutes, so would appreciate someone looking at this again, please. Essjay has not given proper diffs; the first (from his message to R. fiend [84]) is a version, not a diff, and the other three are diffs between his first version and his subsequent versions, to show that they are the same, but not showing what the actual changes were. I quote:

For those who can't count:

My understanding is that what he calls "Strike one" is not a revert. Can anyone help?

Thanks. Off to work now (and will discuss this later with Essjay, if necessary). AnnH (talk) 07:59, 17 December 2005 (UTC)

I am (unusually) logging on from the staffroom computer at work, as a student didn't turn up. I have gone ahead and unblocked a second time. I regret being part of a block war, but it seems obvious that the first one was not a revert. Also, the twelve-hour extension for the use of rollback seems questionable, though I'd bow to the opinion of someone more experienced. Essjay, in his message linked to an RfAr page where an admin was chastised for using admin powers in a dispute, but that related to unblocking himself, and editing a protected page to conform to his version, not to use of rollback (which may not be appropriate, but hardly seems a blockable offence). Will look in again this afternoon. AnnH (talk) 10:30, 17 December 2005 (UTC)

The item listed as "Strike one" is manifestly not a revert. User:R. fiend has only edited John Seigenthaler Sr. Wikipedia biography controversy a total of five times. The edit listed as "Strike one" was R. fiend's 2nd edit, total, of the page, and was simply a minor formatting change from the previous edit. (And the previous edit happened to be his 1st edit of the page, where he simply added Brian Chase's age.)
The edit listed as "Strike two" was the first actual reversion, in which a diff of two consecutive edits from R. fiend show no differences between them. The edit listed as "Strike three" was the second actual reversion, and the edit listed as "You're out" was the third actual reversion.
WP:3RR makes it fairly plain that there must be more than three reverts in a 24 hour period for a 3RR violation to have taken place. And they must be actual reversions, not mere edits. R. fiend did indeed perform three actual reversions within a 24 hour period, but he very clearly did not perform more than three reversions.

Nope, I'm not going to spend any more time on this issue. Not worth the effort or stress. This is another prime example of being bogged down by policy. I'll let whatever stand, and be no part of it. --HappyCamper 15:32, 17 December 2005 (UTC)

I have now posted a message to R. fiend [85] and another one to Essjay, [86] neither of which I had time to do from work this morning. I am quite satisfied that the original block and the renewed block were made in error, and hope the whole thing will die down now. AnnH (talk) 21:05, 17 December 2005 (UTC)

My message to Essjay [87] seems to have led to more ill feeling, as he deleted his user page with the log summary "Taking the hint". AnnH (talk) 12:26, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Reported by: FCYTravis 23:51, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Comment, I don't believe all of these were within a twenty four hour period and if so it was to revert vandalism. Each time I gave an explanation, and I was truthfully unaware I had done so. Thanks, Chooserr 23:55, 16 December 2005 (UTC)
Five were within a 24-hour-period - 23:46 GMT 12/15 to 23:35 GMT 12/16 - and engaging in an edit war over BC/BCE is hardly reverting vandalism. FCYTravis 23:57, 16 December 2005 (UTC)
It wasn't an edit war to me. I originally made it consistent under BC/AD (before it was 2 BC, and 2 BCE) and the other editors' the changes were against wiki policy, and if I'm blocked so should the others. Chooserr 00:03, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
The others (including myself) were careful not to violate WP:3RR. I stopped at three. You should have too. FCYTravis 00:10, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
Plus, it was a dirty trick and a ruse (wheel war?) to get me suspended from wikipedia. I believed the first 2 were in the 24 hour period and so were the latter 2. Chooserr 00:12, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
Ha, so it was a Wheel War which I've been told by certain admins is against wikipedia policy. I would like to therefore nominate you for temporary expulsion from wikipedia. Chooserr 00:13, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
WP:3RR is a firewall that's supposed to get people to step back and examine things instead of endlessly reverting. I stepped back from the issue when I hit my limit. You didn't. You have been reverted by multiple users, and are the only person continuing this edit war. You had a choice - step back from the edit war to discuss the issue, or keep reverting. You chose to keep reverting. That violates policy. FCYTravis 00:17, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
I understand what the 3rvt rule if for, and while not agreeing with it wasn't intent on violating it I believed that it was 2 on each day that I had made, and if someone had changed it once more I would have alerted someone else to the problem so as not to violate my third rvt which I still thought I possessed. As for the stepping back, no ones POV would be changed and I was just told by an admin who I'll add in a second that once it's consistent don't war at all. You initiated this and if anyone deserves blocking it's you. Chooserr 00:23, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
Ignorantia juris non excusat. I hardly see how you can argue "I initiated it" given that you tried the same thing three times last week [93] [94] [95] and were reverted by two different people. The fact that I was the one to catch it this time hardly makes me the initiator. FCYTravis 00:26, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
  • User:Chooserr has yet to serve the 24-hour block that he successfully evaded via the use of a sock puppet account and anonymous IP addresses. (His two following blocks were unrelated, but one was the result of date warring.) His next block should take this into account (and be extended for every evasion attempt). —Lifeisunfair 00:31, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
  • I've blocked Chooserr for 36 hours, and I encourage everyone involved to discuss rather than edit war. Thanks.--Sean|Black 00:32, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Since I am involved in this issue (I was the one who Chooserr reverted a few times), I would like to make a small comment: according to Chooserr, his reverts were done "to revert vandalism." Vandalism is defined by Wikipedia:Vandalism as "any addition, deletion, or change to content made in a deliberate attempt to compromise the integrity of the encyclopedia." It would have been vandalism if I had replaced the name of Xenophon with George W. Bush (to name the first person who springs to mind). A content dispute is no vandalism.

    • You'll notice, I've only made two revisions to the VB article today. In any case, with regards to the article, Quackshot is reverting things that the group had already agreed upon (edits I had nothing to do with in the first place) while labeling it "Doom127 vandalism". He's already been politely asked to stop (and to discuss it with the group before he goes forward and slashes out pieces of the article that other people wrote). Instead, he doesn't consult, he just sits there and hacks away at it repeatedly. Daniel Davis 03:25, 18 December 2005 (UTC) (Doom127)
    • I should mention that Quackshot isn't actually making any actual contributions that might have been reverted, he's just tearing out large chunks from the article, ones that other editors (it would be assumed) worked quite hard on. Daniel Davis 03:37, 18 December 2005 (UTC) (Doom127)

  • The User seems to have a vendetta for User:Doom127. The user violated their present ban for violating the 3RR rule by using IP addresses User:201.29.23.83 and User:201.29.35.148 to revert. These Ip's are known to be Quakeshot because all they did was to revert to Quakeshot's version and they only reverted pages Quakeshot was on. Also the Ip addresses seem to orginate from Brazil along with Quakeshot. The IP addresses engaged in an edit war with User:Doom127 and reverted Doom127's changes. Each IP address stoped right before reverting over 3 times and then changed to quakeshot after his ban was over. Quakeshot not only violated his ban but reverted five times.

  • In my defense, I was reverting against vandalism which was done by anon users via, from my impression, sockpuppetry. The vandalism included the deletion of sections, sources, examples, interwiki links and the infobox. The article that I reverted from contained nonsense such as "washed their brains to create a new person" as well as various grammatical errors and mispellings. If this is not vandalism, then I stand corrected and will be more careful in the future. But I acted on the assumption that it was. I'll comply with whatever action you all may give me. Thanks for your understanding. --Chris S. 22:39, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
    • I have to say that a look at the two versions supports the idea that Christopher was acting in good faith. While the article he was reverting from may not have represented vandalism under Wikipedia's strict definition, it contains such gems as "The term "Moldovan" is also a soviet invention (see Department of State & CIA). ", so I don't doubt that he was acting in good faith by trying to keep the article on a better version. Ahh, and what do we have here on the talk page? "Agree. This Moldovan language is a soviet invention. This is also related to the new american military bases from Romania.-- Bonaparte talk 10:11, 11 December 2005 (UTC)" Well, no wonder Bonaparte is hoping for Christopher to be blocked. -- Antaeus Feldspar 00:08, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

The chaos is because Admins like you don't follow the rules.

Now, again Chris is just making revert war there.-- Bonaparte talk 08:24, 20 December 2005 (UTC)
Bonaparte, why is it like this with you? You think the admins are going to come save you, and when they don't, you whine about being treated unfairly. Admins decide what they decide. If you think they're wrong, go ask other admins.
If you will not block even after he violated the 3RR rule, I will go to the Jimbo and present to him. You don't respect your own rules. Bonaparte talk 15:06, 21 December 2005 (UTC)
