Greetings. I'm a Wikipedia editor because I enjoy research and discovery, and also because I think free access to knowledge is incredible and incredibly important. My areas of interest include 20th century history and politics, science fiction, and NPOV issues. Of late, I have also become interested in anti-Vandalism, because that is easier to fit into my life than content creation. Feel free to leave me a message!

Articles I created[edit]

Biases[edit]

Even over my fairly short career here, I've already been accused of being an America-hating communist, a racist bastard, a pro-Hindu POV pusher, a pro-Muslim POV pusher, and a pro-India POV pusher. I thought I'd clarify where I'm coming from, to see if that helps stop this sort of nonsense. I have have no axe to grind here. What I do have is a significant academic training, which gives me a strong pro-academic bias in sourcing; if I have a choice between a media source and an academic one, I will always choose the scholarly source. This "bias" is in line with Wikipedia's policy on sourcing, so I don't think it is a problem in the least. If you've come to rant at me, just think of that for a moment.

Let's face it, you knew you were going to get this. For all your work in improving, participating actively in discussions and protecting Indian politics-related pages. Other than the dearth of such editors, it can really sometimes be a tiresome and soul-crushing job. Ugog Nizdast (talk) 10:16, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
