  • I don't understand this comment of yours. With that personalisation you seemed to be insinuating that I was behaving disruptively, and I resent it. Do I need to explain to you that my universal disdain for such blind rhetoric is related to my hatred of the propagandistic comments I hear/read about every day from the Propaganda Department? -- Ohc ¡digame! 07:38, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
    • Why did you nominate Timeline of the 2014 Crimean crisis and International reactions to the 2014 Crimean crisis for deletion, which are related articles, without mentioning it on the AfD pages? That's common practice, so it's difficult to understand why you're offended. I did not insult you. I didn't mention your pro-Russian POV pushing and your blanking of cited Western criticism of Russia's illegal invasion of Ukraine and seizure of Crimea[1][2][3], even though as a Ukrainian and a supporter of Euromaidan, I find it distasteful.--Rurik the Varangian (talk) 03:21, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Interview request[edit]

Hi Rurik the Varangian :)

I'm a PhD student at Oxford University and long-time Wikipedian studying breaking news articles on Wikipedia and am working on a new paper about how Wikipedians decide which sources to add to breaking news articles with User:Madcoverboy. I would love to talk to you in general about your wiki work and about sources and references in particular since you have done such great work on the Crimean crisis article.

We're testing out a new methodology for visualizing a user's sources over time and will show you some network diagrams of all the sources and the ones you added in particular to the 2014 Crimean crisis article as a way to discuss source practice.

Do you think you could spare 30 minutes over Skype next week - preferably Wednesday or Thursday? I'm in Oxford (GMT) and you can email me from hfordsa at gmail dot com. Many thanks! hfordsa (talk) 19:22, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
