Bad behavior[edit]

A move from the familiar Santa Maria in Aracoeli to "Basilica of Saint Mary of the Altar of Heaven" [sic], which is absolutely guaranteed to hide the article from any Wikipedia reader who is even remotely familiar with Rome or with art history. Here's a prime example of unwarranted self-confidence too arrogant to discuss such a change with those who have actually contributed content. Made more offensive by waving a link to a Wikipedia guideline as an attack weapon. The worst example of bad behavior I've seen in the past week. No doubt I shall now be assaulted with WP:CIV, which is virtually never brandished by those who act with genuine civility. --Wetman (talk) 21:42, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

So move it back then! But why does the lead refer to the Basilica of St. Mary of the Altar of Heaven? — Blue-Haired Lawyer 22:39, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
Given that the article itself did and still begins with the English title, I had assumed that someone had decided to use English but hadn't bothered to move the article or didn't know how to. Which does happen! I did not make an irreversible move or brandish any kind of "attack weapon". I just briefly explained my reasons by citing the appropriate policy. There are plenty of article about places in Rome which use the English names.
I won't cite the policies you're just broken, but I will say that this unnecessary, bitter, spiteful personal attack made by an editor I've never even encountered before really is the worse behaviour I've ever seen on Wikipedia (and I've been editing for three years). — Blue-Haired Lawyer 20:07, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
