WP:TPG apply. The purpose of this page is to attract my attention immediately, to discuss my editing in general, or to chat with me about editing Wikipedia in general. If you want to discuss my recent edit to a particular page, the proper place is on the talk page of that page, not here. This is so that other interested editors can also join in and we can all reach or at least approach WP:CONSENSUS there. By all means leave me a message and a link here if such a discussion is under way elsewhere and you think I might be interested.
Jeez, Nigel, I did not launch an edit war. (BRD is a great idea, but pertinent edit summaries usually work.) The first edit summary was based on "non-RS" and I pointed out that Moore is a Hoover Institute Fellow. As soon as another editor reverted I opened the discussion. Also, you are claiming that Liberty Fund is a right wing think tank, but Lawrence Summers & Joseph Stiglitz are two of the CEE authors (among many). I don't think they are part of the right wing.-- – S. Rich (talk) 18:40, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) My view, Srich32977(talk·contribs), is that you did. (A) You added stuff; (B) I reverted; (C) You reverted my revert with no discussion. Edit summaries you might use in Step C do not excuse you from first seeking consensus on talk pages before you take step C. Moreover, there is a lower tolerance in the climate articles than usual due to the ruling by the Arbs in WP:ARBCC. NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 19:04, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
You're quite welcome. Hope the editor is following and reading the links I gave in my edit-summary.TMCk (talk) 21:25, 8 October 2013 (UTC)
We get there in the end. :-) --Nigelj (talk) 21:33, 8 October 2013 (UTC)
I would think so but reading his talkpage history I'm not so sure since he's got quite some strong feelings about his edits and knowledge about the subjects he's editing. IMO he still has to accept that we go by reliable sources, not personal knowledge or opinion. I understand that it can be difficult at times to dismiss personal views and (perceived?) knowledge and replace them by or back them up with sources but that's not an excuse for anybody to ignore the rules.TMCk (talk) 21:54, 8 October 2013 (UTC)
