Blocked for sock puppetry[edit]

Stop x nuvola.svg
You have been blocked 2 weeks for sock puppetry. (blocked by MuZemike 21:28, 13 November 2009 (UTC))
You may contest this block by adding the text {{unblock|Your reason here}} below, but please read our guide to appealing blocks first.

Your contributed article, Timeline of hindu history[edit]

Imbox notice.png

Hello, I notice that you recently created a new page, Timeline of hindu history. Firstly thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as yourself. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic one which we already have a page - History of Hinduism. Your enthusiasm is fantastic, but unfortunately your article has been nominated for deletion in accordance with our policies. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we'd love for you to continue helping improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at History of Hinduism - you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think that the article you created should remain separate, you may contest this deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article you created (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on Talk:Timeline of hindu history explaining your position, although an administrator may still believe deletion to be necessary. Regardless, please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, as doing such often creates unnecessary confusion. If you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Hang in there and try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions.

AfD nomination of Worst Genocide in Human History[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Worst Genocide in Human History. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Worst Genocide in Human History. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:35, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Shanigram Saraswathi Kshetram[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Shanigram Saraswathi Kshetram requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content. You may wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Deletion of material you added to history of evolutionary thought[edit]

For the 2nd time I have deleted material you added to history of evolutionary thought. The material you re-added does not seem to be supported by the sources you cited, and one of those sources is almost certainly not a reliable source per WP:RS. When I deleted the material the first time, I added it to the article talk page along with an explanation of my reasons for the deletion. Before you re-add similar material to the article again I would appreciate it if we could discuss it and the supporting sources on the talk page. Thanks Rusty Cashman (talk) 19:59, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

Once again you have added material to history of evolutionary thought linking the incarnations of Vishnu to the biological evolution of species. Unfortunately the only source that you cite to support that connection is [1], which is not a reliable source per WP:RS. The reasons it does not meet the Wikipedia standards for a reliable source are that it is a self published blog by an author who has no publications, or academic or professional qualifications indicating expertise in any relevant field (biology, history of science, or even Hindu theology). Therefore I have reverted out the material again. Rusty Cashman (talk) 20:48, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

The Lost Symbol[edit]

Hi. Regarding your addition to The Lost Symbol, you placed this text in the middle of another reference. I assume that was just an error on your part.

More importantly, although you provided sources for the correct facts in question, these sources obviously do not mention them in relation to The Lost Symbol. Therefore, the observation that the information in the novel is false comes from you, the editor. This is a violation of No Original Research, in particular WP:SYNTH, as such conclusion or criticism must come from the source in question. Thanks. Nightscream (talk) 23:49, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

March 2011[edit]

This is your only warning; if you vandalize Wikipedia again, as you did at Jallianwala Bagh massacre, you may be blocked from editing without further notice.

This warning concerns your addition of text that violated Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy, despite many previous warnings and several blocks over the years for such violations. This also applies to your addition of non-neutral comments to Reginald Dyer. please stop adding your own opinion to articles. Thank you. bonadea contributions talk 07:12, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Bonadea - you are not making much sense. But I guess you have the power as a moderator. Your logic to delete my absolutely correct comments about the incorrect information in the lost symbol was faulty. And now I believe you have a vendetta against me. I know wikipedia is run by western nations and is completely pro-western but I was under the impression (mistaken I believe) that this was some impartiality at play. So unless someone says something glowing about the everything west, one is moderated. Ok, now I get it.

Say something glowing about anything at all - especially something pro-western - and I'll revert it. I detest Wikipedia's US-centrism and European bias very deeply, but adding bias in the other direction is the wrong way to go about it if it's impartiality you are after. Not sure what your "lost symbol" comment refers to. --bonadea contributions talk 18:58, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Bonadea - Fair enough. I will be careful in future. Regarding the lost symbol, I was just correcting the comments made by Robert Langdon, the protagonist, about the zero and numerals coming from Arabia. It is now established by several scholars they came from India and traveled through Arabia into Europe. In any case, it is a small issue.

July 2011[edit]

Please do not repeatedly remove content from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to List of active separatist movements in Asia here and here, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive, and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you. Quigley (talk) 06:58, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

I removed it for one simple reason. The article is on aspirant SOVEREIGN STATES whereas the states mentioned under India are all aspirant STATES OF INDIA i.e. they want to separate from their current state or province(as called in some countries) and to be a separate state inside India. They don't want to be sovereign nations or states. The word state might have confused someone and they may have added these states to the list. Hence I removed them. The only exception is JAMMU AND KASHMIR which wants to separate from India and to be a sovereign entity. So I did not remove it. In fact I added the name of another militant organization which is fighting for independence there. Pleas either reinstate my edits or revert to me.

No, the article is not only about "aspirant sovereign states"; the first paragraph of the article says that separatism covers both autonomism and secessionism. Therefore, movements in India for more territorial autonomy from the central government are entirely within the scope of the article. Quigley (talk) 07:10, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Burma, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mon (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Sept. 2012[edit]

Out of India is already linked under "competing hypotheses" below, but it hasn't received much support from mainstream linguists OR archaeologists, so your edit was unfortunately nonsense.... AnonMoos (talk) 14:22, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

I see. It is a competing hypothesis so it is nonsense. -- 15:08, 25 September 2012 GoonerDP
Whatever -- the Anatolian hypothesis is also a "competing hypothesis", but it's achieved some support from archaeologists studying the Indo-European origins problem, which immediately places it on a plane above the Out of India hypothesis. Of course, when it comes to support from actual linguists, the general Kurgan hypothesis comes out on top... AnonMoos (talk) 17:04, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Have you ever studied the Out of India theory or researched how many archaeologists now accept it as a feasible theory? And don't go only on the basis of wikipedia. I have spent a fair amount of time researching the Out of India theory. But you are free to believe what you want to. -- 17:40, 25 September 2012‎ GoonerDP

Really? Some emphasize cultural continuities over time within India, and that's fine as far as it goes -- but what reputable archaeologist supports invasions from India into Central Asia?? AnonMoos (talk) 03:39, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

Aesop's Fables[edit]

Your edit here was unsourced and pov, so violating WP:NPOV and WP:NOR. I see a lot of complaints above about your edits, and you don't seem to be heeding them. If you continue this way you are likely to be blocked. Dougweller (talk) 05:46, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

Most of the complaints are from Euro-centric editors who don't like my edits when I point out possible Indian origins or Indian history. I know wikipedia is pro-western but I was under the impression (mistaken it seems) that it was neutral.

Yes - Wikipedia must be neutral. You cannot allow yourself to succumb to the temptation to insert unsourced opinions as facts, as you did here, because that is a breach of neutrality. ("most modern scholars" - who, specifically? Where did they publish this? What are your sources? "typical Euro-centrism" - that is POV, and while you can certainly use the phrasing in a direct quote attributed to a reliable source, you cannot add it as enclycopedic text. "most fables if not all came from Indian origins" - this is addd to the article as if it is an established fact, but it is vague and again unsourced. Etc etc.) As you know, this will get you blocked - and in fact you have already received several final chances. I doubt that you will get another one. Please work towards a less Eurocentric/Western-centric Wikipedia. That is urgently needed. You cannot do that if you get yourself blocked by disregarding the policies that are put there to ensure neutrality. Thank you! --bonadea contributions talk 09:16, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Fair enough. I take your point and will work accordingly.

February 2013[edit]

This is your last warning. The next time you violate Wikipedia's no original research policy by inserting unpublished information or your personal analysis into an article, as you did at Holy Grail, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. I am asking any editor who encounters problems with you again to take you to WP:ANI or contact me to block you. You've had enough warnings and I would be within my rights to block you now.
