Disambiguation link notification for March 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages. 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.

Your recent edits[edit]

In several recent edit, you have inserted links to an unpublished paper by Bensimhoun, which you have uploaded to Wikipedia commons.

  1. I have requested to delete this file, because Wikimedia is not a place to upload text files and this appear to be a WO:copyvio, as there is no evidence that Bensimhoun agrees to transfer his copyright to Wikimedia
  2. It appears that this paper has not been published elsewhere. If if would be the copyright owner would be the publisher, and the violation of the copyright would be blatant.
  3. In any case, Wikipedia consider that, in mathematics, the references that have not been peer reviewed are original research, and, therefore, have not their place in Wikipedia. It follows that the references to this article are or will be removed.
  4. From the history of the uploaded file, it appears that you are Bensimhoun. In this case, the links to this article are also a conflict of interest. Although they are not formally forbidden, the usage is to be very cautious with conflict of interests. It is strongly recommended to suggest the insertion in the talk page, and to wait that another editor insert it if he find it relevant.

If you want to answer to this post you can do it here, I'll watch your talk page.D.Lazard (talk) 18:44, 2 March 2014 (UTC)


I am shocked by the vehemence of your attack regarding my participation to Wikipedia. I will answer point after point.

  1. As you said, you have not contented yourself with removing the link from Wikipedia, but also requested to delete the pdf file in wikicommon, alleging that I may not be the owner of the document, and that it may be a violation of the copyright. But you have no right to accuse me of such a violation without solid proofs regarding your allegation. This is pure defamation. I have declared to be the owner of the article, and my declaration is to be trusted, unless you have evidences of the contrary. Beside, there is no relation between the nickname of a person inside an automatized system and the fact that he is or is not the owner of an article.
  2. Of course, this paper has not been published elsewhere previously, and I'm afraid I don't understand the rest of your assertion.
  3. This is understandable and a good practice in general. But this is not the case here: it is normal, in encyclopedic articles, to synthetize facts and results in order to exhibit other ones, as far as these results are sufficiently elementary to be recognized as true by any person with some acquaintance of the subject. It would be ridiculous to try to publish such an elementary theorem inside a peer reviewed journal: Of course, it would be rejected because of its elementary nature. This is why I posted this document in Wiki commons and linked it to suitable Wikipedia pages, in the case where the readers wish reading a proof. It is true that I have not seen this result anywhere, but I am certain that it must be contained inside some well known theorem, if not a theorem itself; this is why I have not attributed the theorem to myself in the paper, but only "presented" the results.
  4. Indeed, I am Bensimhoun, and you have no right to emit doubts thereof. Regarding the "conflict of interest", this is at the least completely exaggerated. First of all, I have no personal interest to publish such elementary results, except the satisfaction to participate to the propagation of the knowledge around the world. I believe that the results pointed out inside that (extremely elementary) paper would have interested the readers of the aforementioned Wikipedia pages, and were also very suitable to these pages. Second, I have only introduced very short insertions inside theses pages, often as an example or a single link. To say that there may be a conflict of interest, is, in my opinion, rather ridiculous in this case.
