Bal Thackeray

I don't see what the change has to do with neutrality. It's true that throughout his political career he promoted xenophobia, and it was not merely an 'accusation'. I will be changing it back to what I did unless you can tell me what is not neutral about the word 'promotion'. It's definitely more accurate than 'accusations'. Thanks. Luthien2010 (talk) 23:20, 19 November 2012 (UTC)Luthien2010

Here's your discussion- Why I support the term 'promotion' over 'accusations' for Thackeray:
1- Numerous statements supporting the philosophies of Hitler, with only one statement saying he did not admire him.
2- Calling for the creating of Hindu suicide squads. If that's not divisive, then what is?
3- Another statement "Bring Islam in this country down to its knees"
4- Insulting the religious festivals of North Indians
5- His own party member, Jai Bhagwan Goyal split because he did not believe that Thackeray aimed for unity
6- Calling for attacks on people celebrating Valentine's day
7- The last and worst is his role in the 1993 Mumbai riots where 900+ people were killed [1] (I will be adding this later under another section or to an existing one.)
Considering all these points, the heading should be 'Promotion of xenophobia' and not 'Accusations of xenophobia'. Your turn Luthien2010 (talk) 04:31, 21 November 2012 (UTC)Luthien2010

United Nations General Assembly resolution 67/17

Seems reasonable to me, though I suspect an RfD may be in it's immediate future. WilyD 10:59, 1 December 2012 (UTC)

Lihaas - Since 67/19 and other UN resolutions refer to resolution 88/99, rather than Resolution 88/99, I must concede that point, even though I am not sure it is stricly correct: resolution 88/99 is a proper name, even though it is not a proper noun. It follows that - the resolution - must be used.

However, resolution 67/19 uses the words - non-member observer State status -, regardless of the correctness or otherwise of the English usage. These four words are the most important in the resolution. I think they should be copied.

(I congratulate you for your work on this article. Trahelliven (talk) 02:47, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Verfication

Regarding your edit[1] on United Nations General Assembly resolution 67/19. Your reverted the edit [2] with the summary "source works for me, verified." Can you show me how you was able to verify the second part of the quote in the source i.e. the "None of these vital interests..." part, otherwise please self revert.--109.186.17.8 (talk) 14:06, 1 December 2012 (UTC)

2011 BC election redirect

To answer your question, there never was 2011 content. I created page as a redirect back in 2011, when there was heavy speculation there would be a snap election after the Liberal leadership election. Its sole purpose was to help people searching for the article based on a mistaken impression gathered from that speculation get to the correct article. Its usefulness has passed, so I've also voted to delete (I kind of think it should have been speedied). -Rrius (talk) 07:08, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

I think you misunderstood. It was never created as an article. The article 40th British Columbia general election (as it was called then) was already in existence. As an aid to people misled by press speculation, I created British Columbia general election, 2011 as a redirect. It never had content beyond #Redirect [[40th British Columbia general election]]. There was nothing to merge, there was no parallel article, there was no separate article about the speculation. It was always a redirect and nothing more. -Rrius (talk) 08:31, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
Also, I've been dealing with election articles for more than five years now and am well aware of the Next... naming convention for most parliamentary systems (not Canada's, incidentally; they use ordinal numbering instead) and have edited more than my share of them. -Rrius (talk) 08:33, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

This user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who accepted the request.

Lihaas (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsabuse filter logcreation logchange block settingsunblock)


Request reason:

I have made here User_talk:Spinningspark#Update a clear explanation of my edit/intention specifically to the admin, and am also engaging in the talk page with explanation of every single point. The admin in question previously threatens me from a DR which i openly said wasn a dispue as i have no qualms in removing the content. and there is not community, nothing for a unilateral block. In regards to what he said the issue was, let me say: 1. I clarified first I have no objection to the removal. 2. i then came here and admitted and talked to the user that he was right, 3. my next edit to that page did NOT involve the repeated insertion on "sic" per the talk page (which can be viewed as uninimously against the usage of "american", whereas the revert of mine was rereverted wholescale of everything), 4. Im discussing all issues, even the ones that were not part of the original consensus. Then following the initial comment at User_talk:Spinningspark#Update i now get a block saying "Disruptive editing: Repeated disruptive (sic) insertions after warnings (deleted by user)". He too talked of the consensus against me which was visibly against the insertion of "sic" and i did not then insert a single "Sic" comment at that point in regards to the "american" aspect in question. I also explained it was about other issues that were not discussed and which i am actively discussing on the talk page. I acknowledge his warnings and did not even edit in that regard and informed what my edit was about. I have no understanding what this was in aid of. What wrong did i do by explicitly refraining from insertion of the said "american" sics? I even explained the reason for the DR complaint where that OP did not discuss but the editor that did discuss on the page i patiently talked, accepted, refrained from adding. Please see the edit history if im wrong because, to repeat, consensus was against the insertion of sic on "american" and i added it nowhere there. It was on other undiscussed issues that just came up for discussion few hours ago and i replied there. (which was responded to immediately when i saw, and incidentally shortly after the edit). It doesnt mean you cant add the term anywhere. The talk page consensus doesnt at all mention it in the uses i added it to. It later came up, i added my comments and have since not even edited the main page at all. Why do I get punished for taking the initiative, voluntarily, to ogo to the talk page and even inform the admin before hand what im doing it (bringing to his atention)? That's bad faith? Neither is it 3RR warring. :Spinningspark, as you can see, it was blindly wholescale reverted cause you toorestored what i fixedLihaas (talk) 3:15 pm, Yesterday (UTC−5) Lihaas (talk) 20:22, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Accept reason:

Editor likely reinserted sics by mistake. I'm not sure I understand all you've written above but you clearly reinserted 'sic' (with an incomprehensible edit summary) after saying on the talk page that the matter was resolved. You need to address that first.--regentspark (comment) 14:03, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

Unblocking administrator: Please check for active autoblocks on this user after accepting the unblock request.
I've looked at this unblock request 3 times now over a couple of hours ... is there a part of it that will ever eventually be WP:GAB-compliant? (✉→BWilkins←✎) 12:49, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
@RegentsPark - I think that Lihaas' edit summary "wee alk" was a typo for "see talk". The "w" is above the "s" and the "t" got dropped. Beyond My Ken (talk) 14:56, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
And I thought he was referring to a diminutive misspelled elk :) Well, it looks like the sic reinsertion might just have been a mistaken byproduct of your edit warring with OrangeMike. All you had to do in your unblock request was say that it was a mistake. I'm unblocking but do read up on the usage of 'sic'.--regentspark (comment) 20:20, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
The reinsertion of the "sics" was certainly not a mistake. The whole thrust of the unblock argument is that the later batches of "sics" were for a different reason to those disputed on the talk page and were therefore not covered by previous warnings/consensus. I neither accept that argument nor am I convinced that Lihaas understands what he has done wrong. SpinningSpark 20:56, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
It looks like Lihaas was reinserting the text on Obama's visit (he reverted OrangeMike's reversion) and the sics came along for the ride. I'm assuming that's the case because a minute later he posted a no sic agreement on the talk page. The way I see it, there's no harm in AGF-ing (if that's a legit term) and unblocking. Easy enough to reblock if we get more sic sickness. Lihaas, I think you need to categorically state that you won't add a single sic to the article for this to be resolved satisfactorily. --regentspark (comment) 21:03, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 10

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of hotels: Countries C, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Songjiang (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.

Knesset members

I used the electoral lists on the CEC website after it was confirmed how many seats each party won. It's now available in English on the Knesset website. Number 57 12:52, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Er, that was the same link as I gave you above. Also, this did not have a "deceptive edit summary", and there were mistakes contrary to your "no mistakes" claim - your attempt to debold the title left is as "Parliamentary election were" (which is clearly incorrect English), whilst you also misspelt "employwr". Please stop debolding titles - it's standard for election articles to have the name of the election bolded. Thanks, Number 57 23:13, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

I do not need to "get consensus", as there already is consensus on this matter. It is standard practice to use boldtitles in this way in election articles - that's why almost every one of the thousands of such articles on Wikipedia (apart from some you've removed it from) have bold titles, and why you keep having to remove it. Rather than having a repeat of the ridiculous "Results" fiasco when you demanded that I "get consensus" when you were the only one editor using the singular, this time I think the onus is on you to get consensus for removing it. In the meantime I will continue to invoke WP:BRD and revert to the original and standard formatting used by other editors if you attempt to work against consensus. Number 57 09:13, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

Following this edit, I will state again that consensus already exists to use this style in election articles. You require consensus to use a different style, so explained above, I have reverted to the original style per WP:BRD. Number 57 21:30, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

ITN/C

Hi, Lihaas. I've removed your blatantly incivil and disruptive comment at ITN/C under {{NPA}} and this is a final warning for your conduct, given your past history. Although you did apologize and retract your comment (which you didn't strike or remove at ITN/C), this disruptive conduct will not be tolerated in the future. Although ITN/C nominations can become heated, please keep a cool head.

Furthermore, I've asked you to do this previously, but please use grammatical and comprehensible English at ITN/C, which as stated before, I know you are capable of based on your article contributions. I'm not a stickler for correct grammar, but your comments are frequently unclear and difficult to understand. SpencerT♦C 22:12, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Does this 3RR report no longer need admin attention?

Please see WP:AN3#User:Robsinden reported by User:Lihaas (Result: ). If you are satisfied due to the editor's self-revert, will you add your comment to that effect? If so an admin will close the report with no action. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 17:09, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Please read my comments at WP:ANEW. If you agree to the terms of my offer, you may accept them there or here. Not responding at all is unacceptable.--Bbb23 (talk) 23:49, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Apparently, the word "unacceptable" means nothing to you. However, you haven't edited Death and funeral of Margaret Thatcher, either, so I'm not going to block you. However, as far as I'm concerned, not only can't you edit the article for 5 days (the original terms), but if I see any disruptive editing to the article even beyond that period, you risk being blocked.--Bbb23 (talk) 14:14, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: 18 April 2013 Baghdad bombing

Hello Lihaas. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of 18 April 2013 Baghdad bombing, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: You didn't provide a reason, but more to the point I can't find one that fits. Certainly seems notable for A7. Take to AfD if required. Thank you. GedUK  12:39, 24 April 2013 (UTC)
