Hello, Bakasuprman/Archive1, and welcome to Wikipedia! I am Deepu Joseph (a.k.a. thunderboltz). Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

User Stuff

My IP is down right now thanks to some "racist remarks" some person posted from my IP. I looked at said remarks and saw a clear bias in the way the block was made. The blocker & blockee seem to have some issues.Bakasuprman Bakaman Bakatalk 02:54, 8 August 2006 (UTC)


Homplease, I don't think that you realize that I'm related to Andre Beteille and therefore am a primary source of information, including his religious preference. Bakaman%% 22:16, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

I didnt see this. Please note that your claim to be related to Prof Beteille, while deeply fascinating, is irrelevant. Please cite your claim, provide a letter from Prof Beteille stating his religious beliefs or it will be deleted as WP:OR. Hornplease 01:29, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Blockage Issue

My IP is blocked for some reason. It said 48 hours, I checked the log for User:Bilbobaggins8 and it said he was blocked for 48 hours. Its been 48 hours and now my IP is STILL blocked. Than you for your time. Bakaman%% 22:21, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

We need your IP.--Kungfu Adam (talk) 23:00, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

My IP is unblocked. Thank you, Kungfuadam for your time.

Thanks for your edit in Witzel's article

Hello, sir. I saw your edits in Witzel's article and wanted to thank you. I was planning to do the same basic edit ,that Witzel had no knowledge of Talageri's work (I am am member of the Indology forum of his and have seen him backpedal on this issue there in the past), but got busy.
I am currently engaging in a debate/borderline-edit-war/shouting-match on the 2002 Gujarat Violence article with three editors that are loading it against Hindus and presenting a biased picture. One of the editors,Lkadvani, has been engaging in Quote Mining from articles on the issue and presenting a biased perspective, which I have been trying to neutralize with some small success. He is also known to make pejorative remarks against Hindus (especially Brahmin Hindus) in various talk pages and touts Christian missionary propaganda on his user page.Wikindian and Haphar and Rushdie are presently ganging up here in an attempt to discredit Indologist Koenraad Elst whose legitimate opinions on the matter(s) in question have been placed in the article by me in order to present a balanced perspective on this issue. Unfortunately, it looks like they're getting ready to mass-revert the article, and I would appreciate any input you may have to offer on this subject and your assistance in monitoring this highly resonant article for bias. Thank you. Netaji 02:29, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Andre Beteille

Please do not add Category:Hindus to the article without citing your addition. I have seen no evidence of Prof. Beteille's religious affiliation. Thanks. Hornplease 22:25, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Also see my reply above. Thanks. Hornplease 01:30, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Arjun Singh

Please cite your repeated additions to the article with references in the mainstream press that indicate that Mr. Singh has called Islam 'secular', Hinduism 'communal', and has described himself as 'anti-Hindu'. Hornplease 22:33, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

2002 Gujarat Violence again

I am presently engaged in an involuntary revert war with Lkadvani in the article, who is loading it with garbage statements unrelated to the Godhra incident. I do not want to violate 3RR rule so I'd appreciate if you'd revert his reverts back to the original version on which we both (presumably) agree. Thank you.Netaji 22:46, 27 July 2006 (UTC)
I am having serious problems in the Gujarat Violence article. Users Lkadvani and rushdie have added extremely racist and pejorative remarks in an irrelevant section. Please help me revert the article from their repeated blatant vandalism. Thank you.Netaji 12:11, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Editing other peoples user pages

Please refrain from editing other peoples userpages. You don't know if that person likes tennis, or speaks vietnamese. If you are that person, consider logging in yourself, or posting a banner one of the (good, not a bad one) sockpuppet notices on your page. Please get back to me at User:Deon555/Contact. Thankyou. --Deon555|talk|e 23:48, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Please note that a large number of your recent changes have been to pages on my watchlist. I have a great deal else to do on WP, and following you around and reverting all your changes is too much of an effort. The community will eventually revert all the difficult ones anyway. Hornplease

The Talageri-Witzel catfight

Hi again. Can you find some factual references to support that Witzel has been caught fibbing about reading Talageri? I've thought about looking in google mailing list archives for any emails from him that suggest so, because I think I remember some correspondence there to that effect (masked behind good ol' Witzel's usual insults, pejorations and personal attacks), but got busy with this awful 2002 Gujarat Violence thingie. So it would be great if you could also look into the matter whenever you can get the time. Thanks.Netaji

I think the ref is cited in Talageri's wikipedia article. I've linked to the Talageri article from the Witzel article for now as backing for Talageri's claim.Netaji 23:36, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

In case I get blocked (unlikely)

In the unlikely event that I get screwed, I need you to monitor the articles. BTW I'm contacting the Hindu American Foundation and requesting help from people who are more erudite and knowledgeable in these matters than I am. Just one thing though. I noticed that in your edits you wrote down sentences, but did not cite references to back it up. This gives the "pak" the justification they need to revert your changes. If you provide references and keep the language factual but sanitized and dispassionate, then their reverts will be illegal and they can be reported as vandals.Netaji 04:35, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

Subhash is quite right, and it would be great if you listened to him on this. Hornplease 05:40, 30 July 2006 (UTC)


Please do not harbour ill will towards other users, even if you've had major conflicts. It is advisable that you remember that we're trying to build an encyclopedia - individual users will come and go, and such feuds don't mean anything. I have told Hornplease and now you that you should make edits to stuff you love and don't keep engaging in contentious POV battles. Anyway, I'm not trying to referee any dispute you may have with Hornplease, so relax. Rama's arrow 03:09, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

I'll need some more help from you I'm afraid

A user, Yeditor has been vandalizing the article on Caste with a bunch of gibberish. Plus, he made personal attacks against me in my talk page (called me a Hindu Vandal) and has violated WP:3RR. I have reported him on both grounds, but there will probably take some time for them to take action. So please monitor the article and revert his vandalism (or add your own edits, wahtever you wish). Thanks.Also, watch for the Indian Caste System article (I added some stuff on the muslim caste system there which muslims might try to revert/vandalize). ThanksNetaji 12:48, 31 July 2006 (UTC)
Check out this guy. Thinks you are my sockpuppet.Netaji 19:02, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

In accordance with this, you hav ebeen blocked for 3 days.Blnguyen | rant-line 08:09, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

Just delete the other two accts then. I used those before I knew what sockpuppeting was. As soon as I saw the sockpuppet comment the other admin left, I stopped using those accts. Anyways the real problem is that Holywarrior still spouts venom on pages and no one blocks him. Bakaman%% 15:43, 2 August 2006 (UTC)
Looks like Holy Warrior has the admins wrapped across his fingers [3] & [4]. He's pissed I pulled nice blows on him in the Textbook article. Bakaman%% 16:02, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

Textbook article

The (User: dude is messing with the textbook article again. The same article, if I'm not mistaken these racist ([5] , [6], & [7] ) comments magically appeared when Holywarrior edited the Talk:Textbook controversy page. No blocks for that? This is corrupt! Bakaman%% 19:21, 2 August 2006 (UTC)


I'll be away

I'm having problems with Borntorebel who has tried to vandalize the Federation of Tamil Sangams of North America article even after I reverted it. I will be going away for the week on holiday (from Sunday 6th to Sunday 12th) so will not be able to monitor him. Once your block gets lifted, please revert his vandalism but DO NOT PROVOKE HIM. For every act of vandalism put a test2, test3 or blatantvandal tag on his talk page. After 3 warnings if he continues to vandalize the article, then go to the page and report him, together with diffs of his edits. If he makes personal attacks at you then DO NOT ENGAGE HIM BACK. Simply report him to the, ok? If you attack him back the admins will only block you again. Blnguyen is basically a decent admin and you can (politely) ask him to help out on his talk page. Also, contact Dangerous-Boy for help (he is not an admin, but in case you need support). Explain the situation carefully and dispassionately.Netaji 05:52, 4 August 2006 (UTC)
Update: Blnguyen has intervened and rules that this is a content dispute and not vandalism (see Borntorebel's talk page). Thus, DO NOT ENGAGE IN A REVERT WAR while I'm gone or else he'll block you and that would do neither of us any good. The best solution is to follow the instructions in the Dispute Resolution Section.
Don't get angry at Blnguyen. He has blocked me before for personal attacks (but he blocked the other guy for longer) and my experience tells me that he is fair and just. He seems like a nice guy overall so interact and dialogue with him and ask him nicely for advise. Ask him to be a third party mediator and, if Borntorebel still mucks about, then follow the steps in the url above and ask for formal intervention.Present your facts and cite references and all that. Post diff links (from the 'compare button' in the history page) to him. Good Luck, and, in the immortal words of Veer Savarkar: "Yashasvi howun yaa".Netaji 06:54, 4 August 2006 (UTC)
Alright, thanks for the help. Btw, if you're looking the fundy page was vandalized.Bakaman%% 00:03, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi, I left a reply to your message on my talk page. Could you please look at it? Thanks, --Shreevatsa 06:19, 6 August 2006 (UTC)


The problem I have with WIN isn't his viewpoints. It's that he's trying to use the Talk page as a debate forum where he can settle the issue for once and for all. Wikipedia is meant to reflect the scholarly consensus, we're not here to actually reach conclusions on controversial theories. I would have no problem if WIN actually added material to the article and sourced it (from real publications, not the amateur websites he always comes up with). In fact, I've been waiting months now for someone to add some good sourced material on the anti-migration perspective to the article. But WIN never almost never edits the article, he just rants on and on on the Talk page. And in fact, he declared on his own Talk page that he won't be happy until the pro-migration perspective is deleted from the article entirely, he's in no way concerned with representing all sides fairly. WIN's not a victim here, he's trying to undermine numerous Wikipedia policies. CRCulver 03:06, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

If you do add material, I beg you to source them from real, printed publications. Most of WIN's info on the Talk pages is sourced only against amateur webpages, usually written in a decidedly unacademic fashion and sometimes with broken English. I'm sure the anti-migration side has some good references out there, and stuff that has even passed peer review would probably even meet the high standards of people like dab. CRCulver 03:18, 6 August 2006 (UTC)
Notice I said printed publications. If the pro-migration side sources from printed publications, and the best the anti-migration side can come up with are websites, it just makes your side look amateur, since in academic fora webpages are still suspected as unreliable. Your university library should provide plenty of printed publications you can source. As I said, I'm sure the anti-migration side has some good printed references, I've even come across a few in the PCT school of linguistics. CRCulver 03:27, 6 August 2006 (UTC)
Yes, I hope you understand that I have no problem with the article being well-balanced and that my criticism of WIN isn't due to his viewpoint, but rather it's due just to his repetitive comments of enormous length on the Talk page (and when editors feel they have to archive the Talk page because it's so long, WIN calls it censorship). CRCulver 03:40, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

With regards to your comments on Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/User:AMbroodEY/Fundy Watch: Please see Wikipedia's no personal attacks policy. "Do not make personal attacks anywhere in Wikipedia. Comment on content, not on the contributor. Personal attacks damage the community and deter users." Please keep this in mind while editing. Thanks. BhaiSaab talk 16:16, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

This is your last warning. The next time you make a personal attack, as you did at Wikipedia:Miscellany_for_deletion#Category:Patriotic_Indian_Wikipedian.27s_Guild, you will be blocked for disruption. BhaiSaab talk 17:03, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

For what did you give me another warning? BhaiSaab talk 17:08, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Calling me a troll, wikistalking, threatening me.Bakaman%% 17:09, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

I have never called you a troll, nor wikistalked you, and warnings based on your edits should not be taken as threats. BhaiSaab talk 17:11, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Going into all of my userpages and finding the list of articles I keep as POV is wikistalking. You tried to get me blocked for that list, but you got rebuffed by Blnguyen, who said its just a list. You also spied on mine, D-boy, Netaji's talkpages. You also just threatened me with a block.Bakaman%% 17:19, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

I didn't have to go through all of your userpages - I just took a look at your contributions. That's not wikistalking. Again, if you have a problem and you think I'm wikistalking three users, including you, take it to the Administator's noticeboard. BhaiSaab talk 17:52, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Invitation to join

I have made an attempt to organize patriotic indians within wikipedia as a common interest group. I have created this category for this purpose [Category:Patriotic Indian Wikipedian's Guild].

Anti-Baka Block

The reasons for blocking are given above - lack of adherence to WP:CIVIL and your edits to the Indian Caste System article. Regarding your e-mail:

"User BhaiSaab was vandalizing the page and now I cannot present my case against him. He deleted the Muslim Caste System section (which is not ALL copyrighted). He has refused to contribute to the article even when other users confronted him. He has made personal attacks, and broken 3RR. I request you block him, otherwise he will WikiStalk me and try to revert productive edits made by me."

Requesting an unblock in order to avoid a potential Wikistalk episode is not a demonstration of the evidence of same. If a Wikistalk experience were to occur then you have the bona fides for an editor review. You have been blocked for three hours. Please do not resume vandalism/point-of-view posting/the posting of copyrighted material to Wikipedia when it expires.  (aeropagitica)   (talk)    21:45, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

He violated 3RR and does not get blocked?. BhaiSaab lied about the copyright and the article was sourced. Its totally unfair that he doesn't get blocked.Bakaman%% 21:50, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Can you prove that I'm lying? BhaiSaab talk 21:56, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Not when I'm blocked for dubious reasonsBakaman%% 21:57, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
You can post all your proof here - after all, you can still read the articles. BhaiSaab talk 21:59, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
User:Pecher confirmed that it was sourced and verified, and D-boy reverted the edits anyways.Bakaman%% 22:00, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Pecher did not realize it was copyrighted. D-Boy seems to have a disliking for my edits. BhaiSaab talk 22:01, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Anyways you made 5 edits pn the page (meaning you vandalized it 5 times) [9]. D-boy and Pecher have stated that your actions are wrong and taht the material is sourced.Bakaman%% 22:03, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Nice lie, Pecher never stated anything of the sort.Bakaman%% 22:05, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Are you trying to discredit D-boy?Bakaman%% 22:03, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Even Stifle said that he "could not find all the paragraphs on the website linked", meaning you were unwarranted in your decision.Bakaman%% 22:08, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
What are you talking about? Pecher doesn't have to say anything for me to say that he didn't realize it was copyrighted. You seem to be unable to substantiate your claims against me. Copyrighted material is not allowed here. If you want to see me banned, go to Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard with your evidence. BhaiSaab talk 22:09, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Thw hole thing was not copyrighted [10] its on your talk page by Stifle. I would go to the noticeboard but your admin buddy blocked me (for your vandalism). Anyways, the four CONTRIBUTING authors (Krsont(history buff), Me, D-boy, and, Netaji) don't buy your story, neither does Pecher. Bakaman%% 22:14, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
That's great. Feel free to go to the noticeboard after your block is over. BhaiSaab talk 22:15, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
I did, but then your "admin" ambushed me before I could present my case. I guess thats the attitude someone with no history of contributions makes. (Not a violation of WP:AN, I'm commenting on your actions)Bakaman%% 22:21, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
That person is not "my admin." I don't even know him/her. BhaiSaab talk 22:23, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Your knowledge of your admin reflects your knowledge of the Caste system in India. 22:26, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Great. BhaiSaab talk 22:30, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Regarding your edits on Indian Caste System

Stop hand.svg

Wikipedia guidelines dictate that you assume good faith in dealing with other editors. Please stop being uncivil to your fellow editors, and assume that they are here to improve Wikipedia. Thank you. Copyrighted text can be removed on sight. BhaiSaab talk 20:14, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Lets see.... not to be racist but you are Muslim and you totally vandalized the section on the Muslim caste system. Something is a bit wrong there.Bakaman%% 20:16, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Removing copyrighted text is not vandalism. Please see WP:Vandalism. BhaiSaab talk 20:18, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
