Communication style[edit]

Hello. Last week you placed a warning on my otherwise blank IP talk page, effectively making an allegation of POV editing [1]. While mistakes obviously happen I found it hard to see how a simple copyedit was construed as POV [2] (though perhaps the exclamation mark in my edit summary clouded your judgement). From my experience of Wikipedia, I know that patrollers tend to see warnings such as this on IP talk pages as a kind of red flag. I therefore posted polite rebuttals both on your talk page [3] and my own [4]. It may have taken you just a few keystrokes to issue your warning, but it obviously took me a little longer to reply. However, my post did not get any acknowledgement. Instead, I see you have now "cleaned-up" your talk page by removing my message along with various complaints from other users about warnings they considered inappropriate.

While I can imagine you do much valuable work on Wikipedia patrolling new edits, I feel that for the sake of editor retention (if nothing else) it is worth bringing to your attention that this sort of communication style may be somewhat chilling. Regards, (talk) 17:23, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

Got a warning from you to this IP, please help :)[edit]

Hi, you recently reverted vandalism done by this IP number ( The problem is that this is a public IP number, I'm just a wikipedia user who just randomly got this IP and just saw the messages. It seems to belong to Gothenburg City and I got this from using the free wifi services in a local library. I don't know if it's possible to mark this IP and its corresponding range as public or something, and at the moment I don't have the means to find out. If you know how, please mark it, otherwise maybe I'll remember to do it in a couple of weeks when I'm on a real connection again. :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:58, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) I was aware of this because I also issued a vandalism warning to that IP yesterday, and was watching to see if vandalism resumed - fortunately, it did not.
I have added a {{Shared IP address (public)}} notice at the top of User talk: That will explain things to new users such as yourself who see warnings not addressed to them, though it will not prevent short blocks being issued in the event of persistent vandalism.
(Note: I have moved this down, because new messages customarily go at the bottom of talk pages, to keep the conversation in order). JohnCD (talk) 20:33, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Vandalism - can you please help?[edit]

Gooday - I noticed that you'd performed reversions on the Hucknall page here I'm not able to do so presently due to the number of edits from different IP addresses within minutes of each other. ThanQ. --Rocknrollmancer (talk) 13:54, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Joseph Esposito[edit]

The Joseph Esposito Indictment information appears incorrect. The articles on major media did not mention that it was the former Chief of Police, jsut a former officer, albeit one with same age as former Chief. In addition, the photo showing Joseph Esposito on the NYT site does not look like the former chief. [1]

Great Chinese Famine[edit]

Hi there. You left a {{Uw-delete1}} warning on this IP's talk page for content removal without explanation, but he left a fairly thorough edit summary. I'm neither contesting nor supporting the edit itself; maybe the wrong template was used? Blackguard 19:36, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Barnstar of Reversion Hires.png The Anti-Vandalism Barnstar
Here's a wonderful barnstar for your anti-vandalism efforts! I'm Canadian too, so if you look behind the barnstar you'll see a maple leaf painted on it - can you see it? No? Hm, guess Wikipedia's 2-Dimensional world doesn't help. Oh well, have a good day! K6ka (talk | contribs) 00:57, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Inaccurate classification of commentary[edit]

This is in response to the deletion of highly relevant content in the profile page of an American Football athlete. As pursuant to the eligibility and credibility of one being qualified to edit articles pertaining to this particular subject matter, your profile does not suggest that you are one such candidate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:25, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Comment[edit]

Thanks for this edit. I didn't actually check the article contents before copy-editing it, I was just making the wikipedia link a wikitext link instead of an external ref. — Preceding unsigned comment added by NDKilla (talkcontribs) 19:17, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Edits 11/11/14, LMSS[edit]

Not entirely sure why you thought restoring previous information is 'not constructive' It has clearly been removed as it was causing embarrassment — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:01, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi, you have reverted my contributions but failed to explain why. This is indefensible bullying and is entirely inappropriate. Suggesting that repairing an article which has clearly been edited for political reasons is 'not constructive' is in itself, not particularly constructive — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:28, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

FHU Editing[edit]

Please explain to me how my editing of the Freed-Hardeman University page was biased and not neutral? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cnash1303 (talkcontribs) 18:13, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
