Pakistan is in the Balkans![edit]

The Balkanian reverting circus has reached out into a geographically surprising location: Burusho, an article about an obscure tribe living in Pakistan. Background: It's one of those tribes whose oral traditions trace their own origin to the armies of Alexander the Great, and now our Balkan editors struggle over which modern Balkan nation gets to reap the ideological rewards of this legendary connection. While the Kalash, another tribe in Afghanistan, have been taken ideological possession of by the Greeks, the Burusho have recently seen advances from the ethnic Macedonians. One Macedonian editor, User:Cukiger, has been pushing a rather tendentious undue-weight account of recent contacts in the articles both on the Burusho and Macedonians (ethnic group), persistently reverting against consensus: [70], [71], [72], [73], [74], [75], [76] (6 rv in 6 days); [77], [78], [79], [80] (4 rv in 4 days). Earlier revert-warring on similar material at Burusho involved User:MacedonianBoy on the one side, and User:The Cat and the Owl, User:Laveol, User:3rdAlcove on the other.

I've done a revert or two myself here, so I'm not uninvolved. Fut.Perf. 07:11, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Two comments on my part

1)If two reverts of (politically-motivated) nonsense is "edit-warring", then I guess I'm edit warring on 2-3 articles right now. Perhaps we should let the fringecruft pile up in hopes of an admin spotting it.

2)Moreschi's comment here was out of line. Jingiby's edit here used these misspellings and his was PURELY an attempt to bring the "Hunza - Alexander's soldiers" material to NPOV status and stop the "edit-warring". When we comment on something in such a manner, we take the time to find out if we aren't being completely mistaken. 3rdAlcove (talk) 15:21, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

My point was that everybody is so busy wrangling that nobody bothers to fix the obvious spelling and grammar mistakes. That really gets my back up.
Fair enough with point 1. You are correct re the dispute on Burusho. If the conflict continues there I certainly have no intention of sanctioning anyone who reverts the fringecruft. Moreschi (talk) (debate) 15:27, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
