I am a resident of Somerset in glorious south west England. My account is new but I have been a Wikipedia editor for a long time under the username Simple Bob.
I am very welcoming of new editors to Wikipedia and will go out of my way to help them with any mistakes that they make - pointing out the best way to go about things, e.g. adding infoboxes, correctly formatted references, and templates. What I don't like is people who repeatedly ignore advice from me and from others offering help, and instead carry on with their bad practice on Wikipedia articles. That is rude and ungrateful, and Wikipedia is not the place for such people.
Spam and spammers
I loathe spam and have occasional burst of anti-spam activities removing multiple copies of the same spam external link from a number articles. My home county of Somerset isn't too bad, due to a great bunch of people in the Somerset Wikiproject, but my neighbouring counties of Dorset, Devon, Cornwall etc are terrible and ripe for a good pruning. Please understand that it's not personal if I delete your pet link, it's good wikipractice - see WP:ELNO. If you are a website owner upset at me removing your link then I have no sympathy - go read WP:COI. As you will see from the award below, some people do appreciate my anti-spam efforts.
