Regarding this ismage, I see that you are now saying that you are the copyright holder? Does that mean that you took the photograph, or hired someone to take it? It has the appearance of being a professional photograph taken in the course of an event, so I'm confused. Please clarify the circumstances of your ownership of the photograph.   Will Beback  talk  19:57, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

October 2009[edit]

I have removed your message on User talk:Vawavictim; Wikipedia is not intended for this kind of personal messaging. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 20:03, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Information.svg Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did to Violence Against Women Act. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. Let me make this abundantly clear: the additions you made to the article cannot be accepted--this singling out of certain nationalities, and the making of blanket accusations that such foreign women are crybabies abusing US laws, that is beyond the pale. You said, "However, some foreigners would prefer not to remain married that long, and would prefer simply to get married, and shortly afterwards make a false domestic violence claim. For them, the four years is too long." That belongs on the message board of your advocacy group, not in an encyclopedic article. Drmies (talk) 21:23, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

I will make edits to the article to eliminate references to nationalities; the orgigon of that is the crime is promoted in NY by Russian crime groups, but I will take that out nonetheless, so it does not appear biased. I will also clean up the comments about "not wanting to remain married that long". They key point that I am trying to convey is that this is a new twist to immigration fraud introduced by VAWA. Even before VAWA, the federal Government estimated that 30% of those obtaining a Green Card through marriage were doing so fraudulently. In a big city like NY or LA, the wait for a Green Card after marriage can be up to 4.5 years. VAWA has reduced the time to less than a year in many cases. Once an alien who marries a US Citizen has his or her first INS interview, they can claim to be a DV victim, and become eligible for a Green Card. However, to get the Green Card they usually have to get the accused arrested, or at least get a Stay Away Order of Protection. This is has become widespread.

Drmies, the one thing I do respectfully insist is that you do not accuse me of vandalism; you may not be pleased or agree with what I write, and I am open to constructive criticism, and I will make every good faith effort to cover the topic accurately and fairly, with proper attribution and sourcing. However, it is not appropriate to call covering an issue like this vandalism. Other writers besides myself have tried to address this issue on the VAWA pages, and it must be. VAWA has a created a serious change in US Immigration procedures, and a huge loophole in the system; this is appropriate to discuss in a reference doc

Violence Against Women Act[edit]

I'm posting here what I posted on the talk page.

You're naming what appear to be living people, but using only primary sources to write about them. You must use secondary sources e.g. newspapers or books. Please read our policy on living persons, Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons, carefully before proceeding. This section must not be restored with that material in it, unless you find reliable secondary sources and stick closely to what they say. Also, please note that the sources must discuss the case with reference to the Violence Against Women Act. We can't publish material about living persons based on a Wikipedian putting two and two together: see WP:SYN. SlimVirgin talk|contribs 03:35, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

I'm even more confused now that I've read through the court document. It doesn't seem to mention the two names you published, but does seem to be about you. This is highly inappropriate; see WP:COI, WP:BLP, and WP:NOR. You really must not restore it, or you risk being blocked, as this is a serious violation of our policies. The purpose of Wikpedia articles is only to tell readers what reliable sources (and that usually means secondary sources such as books, newspapers, and academic articles) are saying about a given topic. We're not allowed to use articles to engage in personal advocacy, and particularly not where living people are concerned. SlimVirgin talk|contribs 03:50, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

... [edited per BLP] The VAWA record is in very detailed in the Appellate Record. Are you saying that the Appellate Record is not sufficient? kops2222

There is no Conflict of Interest here. The court cases have been adjudicated. The only interest here is to ensure that the discussion of VAWA is complete and balanced. Omission of any discussion about the Green Card loophole, which is well documented now in the web, is included. if you feel that some of my edits were unclear or opinionated, I do not object if edit them, but do not delete the entire topic — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kops2222 (talkcontribs)

I have blocked you for 12 hours for restoring the material with a false edit summary that said the names had been removed. You are not allowed to edit about living people with whom you're involved in personal legal disputes, or about any living person without reliable secondary sources. Please understand that Wikipedia takes the BLP policy very seriously. SlimVirgin talk|contribs 04:14, 22 October 2009 (UTC)
Do not refer to it on your talk page either, please, or I will protect the page. If it is such a famous case, newspapers will have written about it, and others can add it to the article. But you must not discuss it with reference only to court papers. SlimVirgin talk|contribs 04:16, 22 October 2009 (UTC)
