Your Bogus Warning on my Talk page[edit]

You have quite the gall to be accusing me of edit wars, when you are the one that started it all anyway! Go back and read what that warning message says! "Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively"! Do you even understand what these words mean?! It doesn't quite equate to your attitude of MY WAY or HIGHWAY, I can assure you that!! You, with your narrow minded regional,linguistic and community based chauvinistic approach is what led to this mess to begin with. You moving other regional information including Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka information way below, while cramming up and monopolizing the initial part to give it a regional and community based slant is narrow mindedness at its worst! My last edit was to make it cleaner and neutral like Dosa page and you REVERTED it and also DELETED a valid text around my citation in History section. I DID NOT delete anything! You DELETED my citation information on K.T.Achaya from History page. Mine was GOOD FAITH,productive and neutral edit, whereas, yours was a BAD FAITH disruptive edit at best and probably a proper example for vandalization!! Colaboration and compromise doesn't mean you get to keep want you want and what others have is negotiable! Rest assured, my future edits won't be conciliatory!!

Once again, I haven't DELETED anything you added!! Just left both the negotiable items as [citation required] for now. I added enough explanation to assuage you Tamil-phobic approach for the K.T.Achaya's "Story of our Food" citation text in History section. I cannot compromise on the truth as I visited Appam's Wikipedia page after reading the e-book that I bought!! This is the best compromise you are going to get! Otherwise, we will keep at it for a long time, I Promise! MariaJeyaraj (talk) 05:25, 10 January 2015 (UTC)
I am fine with the change to History section. I made minor changes and moved around the regional information up front followed by community specific information. Once again, I DID NOT DELETE anything, just moved around so that there is no unnecessary edit wars later on. If this is not done now, there are other who might initiate it later on and you may have to be constantly on the vigil and fight edit wars. After all deep down you will also thing of it to be fair.Thanks MariaJeyaraj (talk) 02:30, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

Recent edits on Appam (History & Main sections)[edit]

I have added my comments to Talk page on Appam for which I need your reply. Those were in relation to your recent edits. Please make sure you present your points objectively and explain the merits of your edits against the facts given on the talk page.MariaJeyaraj (talk) 03:22, 25 December 2014 (UTC)

BTW, I am still waiting for your explanation and justification for why you made the changes in History. If there is NO meaningful reply from you on this, I reserve the right to change it back the way it was and make it more in sync with other foods like Dosa and Idli.MariaJeyaraj (talk) 06:11, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

"Appam" as "staple diet" and "cultural synonym" of Nasranis[edit]

Hi I have left the following message in the talk page for Appam. Please post your reply there if you want to objectively discuss this further. Given below is a statement on Appam article:

"It is a staple diet and a cultural synonym of the Nasranis (also known as Saint Thomas Christians or Syrian Christians) of Kerala, India"

Above text is an awfully specific claim. There were a number of citations included to support this claim. However, most of the books that are available on Google books just do not have any mention of word "Appam" and therefore those citations were removed as per Wikipedia policy. As of now, the above text looks more like a self proclaimed title based on community folklore without any neutral citations to back it up. Lot of communities can claim such stuff for various food based on family/community folklore. Wikipedia is no place for such proclamations. So, I am marking the text as requiring valid citation.MariaJeyaraj (talk) 19:55, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

I have left a reply back for you in Appam talk page. Please provide you reply thereMariaJeyaraj (talk) 06:12, 7 January 2015 (UTC)


Unexplained reversions[edit]

Hi, please don't revert good-faith edits as you did here without explaining the rationale in an edit summary. I reverted the data in this edit because (as my edit summary says,) it is "Unclear why the data is removed." Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a puzzle book, so removing information without proper explanation is unhelpful. Edit summaries can be found by clicking "View history" at the top of the article.
