Hi, I edited this page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somanathapura
with stuff from this link http://temples.south-india-tour-package.com/karnataka-temples/somnathpur-temple.html
Please let me know if its ok, or whether it violates any copyright, and how do we put in the same information without violating copyright?
On page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maharishi_Mahesh_Yogi there is a link near the end of the page Falling Down the TM Rabbit Hole Criticism of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and TM by a former TM teacher which if examined is seen to fall into the category of libelous to a living biography.
I removed the link but an editor has put it back in. The website that is negative is self-published by the author who created it. He uses very strong statements that seem unbalanced. Do I have the right to remove it again? Somehow I think I do, but am feeling a little intimidated and wanted to confirm.
SSS108 recently recommended I call upon you if need some help. I am not new to Wikipedia though have not until recently seen what goes on behind the scenes. I like to help TimidGuy who has been trying to improve on the level of accuracy Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's biography. The other editors did allow some libelous material in the biography itself to be cut out, but they seem to feel that libelous material in a link is ok, although they do acknowledge it is a very negative link. Somehow I disagree--links also to a living biography should be balanced and not so somewhat deranged sounding as is the case with Falling Down the TM Rabbit Hole Criticism of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and TM by a former TM teacher.
Thanks for advising. Cordially Vijayante 01:18, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Major Sockpuppet abuse
Hi there, I remembered what a robust job you did at tracking down the numerous Ekajati sockpuppets, and I wanted to find out if you could help me or give me some tips on how to deal with a similar, albeit much easier situation: These diffs should give a good introduction: , Wikipedia:Requests_for_checkuser/Case/Watchtower_Sentinel, and the classic treatise (and this is just the pre-April2006 stuff) - . These two - Ekajati and NoToFrauds teamed up against me with a host of pups in 2006, which made me look really stupid because I acted like an ass and warred with them (call it neophyte follies). I since took a long sabbatical and have been playing very nice in 2007, but this particular guy wont let up. --Hamsacharya dan 03:03, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
The above-named arbitration case has closed and the decision may be found at the link above. Rosencomet is cautioned to avoid aggressive editing of articles when there is a question of conflict of interest. If edit warring or other conflict arises, it may be best to limit editing to talk pages. This notice is given by a clerk on behalf of the Arbitration Committee. Newyorkbrad 16:59, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
