You sent me a message just a minute ago saying i vandalised a page and you changed it, i've just created this account after that. Tell me what i apparently vandalised then.
An Arbitration case in which you commented has been opened, and is located here. Please add any evidence you may wish the Arbitrators to consider to the evidence sub-page, Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Alastair Haines/Evidence. Please submit your evidence within one week, if possible. You may also contribute to the case on the workshop sub-page, Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Alastair Haines/Workshop.
Thanks for your note
I appreciate your input. I'm definitely researching this, and I'll admit that I have a long way to go. I'll definitely review everyone's evidence to see if it changes my perspective.
Lisa actually came onto my talk page and interacted with me while Alastair and I were discussing the Gender of God page. He and I at the time thought it ironic that I was defending Christianity's self definition while he was trying to source Judaism's. In other words, we were doing the wrong religions. But I was still scared to add to Jewish sections because of previous experience, and when I foolishly did so -- BOOM.
In any case, I've looked at Lisa's evidence against Alastair, and it simply looks like him protesting his innocence. I haven't been able to go through yours yet, but I promise to do so.
I guess we all have our perspectives here. I suspect that everyone here is being more honest than the alternate POVs suspect (that is, we all really MAY see things the way we are presenting them -- even Lisa). I guess that's why the committee is there.
- Thanks for the confirmation. I'm actually heading home now and Shabbat is coming shortly after I get home (it's a long trip). I may not be able to rephrase my terms before Sunday, and I apologize if any mistake on my part causes a problem. But I'll give a good review of my words as soon as I'm back on Wikipedia. Again, thanks.Tim (talk) 19:19, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
Please talk to me...
If you have retired due to the Haines episodes, please reconsider; the fact that he suffers from a god-complex will be his undoing oneday. Just hang in there and eventually he will get his "comeuppance". Whatever you decide, good luck. Abtract (talk) 12:46, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
Just read your reply to those arrogant underage kids in the "backyard airsoft" section in the discussion. I know it's a while ago, but it's good to know there are players like you who are doing all they can to counteract these idiots who are doing all they can to get the sport banned and ruin it for the rest of us126.96.36.199 (talk) 19:54, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
- Response I am obviously very disappointed by this decision. The assertion that I did not read the article is highly misleading, not to mention offensive. I have been a Wikipedia editor for many, many years, and have followed the rules and regulations throughout these years. To suggest that I did not follow the regulations is complete bunkum. Using the evidence present in the article, I made a choice based on what I thought was a fairly obvious case - it STILL breaks our rules on blogs, recentism, notability, and bias. The "keep" votes are from people who have an immense level of conflict of interest, and therefore skew the vote something rotten. I am very disappointed that this entire episode has been carried out at my expense, rather than at the article itself. This response will be copied to as many concerned editors in this matter. doktorb wordsdeeds 18:38, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
- Thank you for contacting me with your concerns. I cannot see where I have made an assertion that you did not read the article in my response to the AfD regarding Rhys Morgan, though I understand other parties might have felt that way. Obviously all AfDs have a certain measure of disagreement. This is true of all consensus and if in doubt I would hope you WP:Assume good faith of all other editors involved, whatever their account's age.
- I should like to point out, in addition, that Wikipedia has no rules and regulations and that if we assume you are referring to the WP:Policies and guidelines, it is quite impossible not to fall afoul of them. That it why it is important to be WP:Bold on Wikipedia and rely upon consensus, to the extent we also WP:Ignore all rules. I should also hasten to add that an AfD is not a vote. Parties who simply add nothing to the debate are ultimately disregarded in the decision making process, hence why it is not worth getting worked up about them. Indeed, we could distill this down to the simple assertion that people are irrelevant when coming to such a consensus, only the arguments posed are relevant. Ad hominems are similarly valueless, hence it's better to just WP:Assume good faith.
- An AfD, and the comments therein, do not reflect on the editors except insofar as their own behaviour besmirchs their name. Experienced editors regularly assert things that others do not agree with or make arguments others find ludicrous. This is perfectly normal and does not represent a failing or mistake on the part of the editor and should not be treated as such. This is particularly amplified when you consider that many of the accounts were relatively young and thus their opinions of other's actions hold zero weight amongst others not already inclined to those opinions.
- In closing, I would suggest that making a large number of accusatory statements about Incivility is not a good idea unless you are prepared to take the flak of those you may have incorrectly labelled as such, since failure to WP:Assume good faith is not a trait Wikipedians value. -Rushyo Talk 19:04, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
Did you see this? Arcandam (talk) 21:40, 20 May 2012 (UTC) p.s. I made a small linkfix on your userpage, I hope you don't mind. Do you like Total Annihilation? Supreme Commander always reminds me of that game. Arcandam (talk) 21:44, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
- Yup, I've added a reply. Cheers for the linkfix. I would suspect SC reminds you of TA because it was made by many of the same people, I only played TA a few times, well over a decade ago now! -Rushyo Talk 21:48, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
- Me too! I can highly recommend it, one of the best games I ever played. That doesn't surpise me, both are great games. Yeah, I know, I play oldskool games. :P Playing Theme Hospital by Bullfrog in 2012 on a quadcore is fun! I am addicted to Tropico 4 ATM; great game (gameplay is unfortunately a bit short without DLC's). Once you are used to the way the economy and traffic works it is really fun.

Speedy deletions declined
Hello Rushyo. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Shree Agrasen Mahavidyalaya(Dalkhola college), a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: A7 clearly excludes schools. Thank you. Alexf(talk) 13:10, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
Hello Rushyo. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Dalkhola High School, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: A7 does not apply to schools. Thank you. Reaper Eternal (talk) 14:07, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
- Cheers. Might propose re-factoring A7's description. I scan read the list for organisations, then glossed over the rest of the list and contined reading. I think the exception needs to be made more obvious -Rushyo Talk 14:36, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Frozen Synapse picture
In case you don't watch your commons talk page, I wanted to let you know that I tagged the screenshot you just added to Frozen Synapse for deletion. If you read WP:Screenshot, you'll see that screenshots of proprietary software cannot be public domain; it doesn't matter that you made the video, because the underlying game itself is not free. It's the same reason why you can't take a video in a movie theatre and then claim that because you shot it with your own camera, you now own the rights to that new work. However, you can probably re-upload the screenshot to Wikipedia's file system under our fair use exception (which does not exist on Commons). Qwyrxian (talk) 23:26, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
- Incorrect assumptions, however will discuss at the deletion page. To re-iterate: The image is not public domain, the software grants me copyright of this derivative work. -Rushyo Talk 23:29, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

Your request for rollback
Hi Rushyo. After reviewing your request for rollback, I haverollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:
- Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
- Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
- Rollback should never be used to edit war.
- If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
- Use common sense.
If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! v/r - TP 20:30, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
Removing AfD template
Welcome to Wikipedia. Please do not remove Articles for deletion notices from articles, or remove other people's comments in Articles for deletion debates, as you did with Ken Hoang. Otherwise, it may be difficult to create consensus. If you oppose the deletion of an article, please comment at the respective page instead. This is an automated message from a bot about , where you removed the deletion template from an article before the deletion discussion was complete. If this message is in error, please report it. Snotbot t • c » 16:37, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
- False positive. Removal was for 5th nomination, Snotbot is looking at 6th nomination. Reported to bot operator -Rushyo Talk 17:36, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
Stay off my talk page. We have an editor who is disrupting the discussion by re-entering the same lenghty content. He was educated on how to edit his prior comments. --188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:55, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
- Assume good faith. Civility is a cornerstone of Wikipedia. If you are incapable of continuing your discussion without resorting to personal attacks and breaching Wikipedia policy yourself then I recommend you remove yourself from the discussion or utilise Wikipedia's dispute resolution processes. We do not tolerate personal attacks. -Rushyo Talk 20:59, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
Tau Epsilon Phi
Hi you reverted back my talk posting thank you. But IP 76 has deleted it again. Also FYI it is not repetitive posting. He is emotionally involved in the argument. Our admins have already agreed to leave names out of a particular article and he keeps distracting with harassing me, accusing me of things, and intimidating me rather then stay on the topic at hand. Sorry for the trouble.
You have been educated about how to strike comments from your original post. And you do not re-post the same comments, especially lengthy ones. If you continue, you will be reported. --184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:03, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
- I am reporting you for your behaviour, which is completely unacceptable. Your attitude towards other users in completely contrary to the manner in which Wikipedians should conduct themselves. You will be noticed when an incident has been raised. In the meantime please immediately desist from interacting with Opthamologist. -Rushyo Talk 21:06, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
My new posting was rewritten, it is not the same content at all. It is completely different.
Far Cry 3
- Information in articles must come from verifiable and reliable sources. Original research is not permitted. -Rushyo Talk 16:45, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
- This is rubbish! Just look at any Wikipedia article on movies and games. Go on, look! None of their plot synopses have citations. The reference material IS THE GAME ITSELF. Do you want me to add a citation to "Ubisoft (2012). Far Cry 3." for every paragraph in there? This is not "research".Kurzon (talk) 17:05, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
If you revert my edit again I will report you to the admins for violating the 3-revert-rule. Why not try considering my argument instead of harping on about the citation rule?Kurzon (talk) 17:37, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
- I am acutely aware of WP:3RR, thank you. The fact is, as long as you continue to remove sourced material in favour of unsourced material you are patently breaching WP:RS. There's no argument to answer. My inclination is to open a request for comment but that seems like a waste of time, policy is already quite clear on this: The game itself is not a valid reliable source. First-party information (i.e. the game itself) then synthesized in to a plot summary is original research.
- This is neatly encapsulated in the following paragraph from WP:PRIMARY: "Do not analyze, synthesize, interpret, or evaluate material found in a primary source yourself; instead, refer to reliable secondary sources that do so. Do not base an entire article on primary sources, and be cautious about basing large passages on them. Do not add unsourced material from your personal experience, because that would make Wikipedia a primary source of that material."
- The existing plot summary is appropriately sourced, hence the general hostility to you removing that content. It appears that you are trying to push your preferred interpretation of the plot over the existing, appropriate, content. Whilst you may gain XP in the Wikipedia MMORPG for doing this, it doesn't actually help with the whole encyclopedia thing. -Rushyo Talk 18:02, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
- In addition, were it ever appropriate for a user to erase another's interpretation of a plot (from a primary source) with their own interpretation of a plot (from a primary source), we would be in never-ending revert wars as everyone tried to get their version of the plot in to an article. That's just not how Wikipedia works. If we took this bizarre concept to its conclusion, I would be perfectly legitimately able to remove your plot summary with my plot summary, then John Smith would replace my plot summary with their plot summary and then the madness would descend upon the world and all would be swallowed in its wake. -Rushyo Talk 18:14, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
I've started a discussion over at Wikipedia:No original research/Noticeboard#Far Cry 3 Plot Summary. Please chip in there for consistency. -Rushyo Talk 18:42, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
The controversial comments were made in a public forum on Facebook and viewed by numerous individuals, including myself. I had previously linked the comments but they have since been deleted. All the comments are verifiable and not defamatory. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kabirat (talk • contribs) 19:35, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
- For the comments to be verifiable they must have appropriate sources. Hearsay and anecdotes are not reliable sources. We absolutely do not permit this sort of content on Wikipedia without evidence according to our policies and if you insist on re-adding it without citations you may end up blocked. -Rushyo Talk 19:38, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
The comments are neither defamatory nor hearsay. For it to be defamatory is must be untrue (which it is not). For it to be hearsay, it must be a comment that was relayed to me by another observer. Here, I personally observed the comments. Without the benefit of those controversial statements we are perpetrating a false picture about the subject and thereby manipulating an accurate portrayal of her character. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kabirat (talk • contribs) 19:44, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
- We do not permit content that could be potentially defamatory. This means it must be appropriately cited with a reliable and verifiable source. See WP:GRAPEVINE. It is hearsay to me or anyone else on Wikipedia, not you. Whether it is hearsay to you is irrelevant, we are building an encyclopedia which is viewable to the entire world. Therefore we must meet a standard of evidence beyond 'somebody told me that they read it on a Facebook page but it isn't there anymore so you'll just have to trust me'. -Rushyo Talk 10:24, 7 December 2012 (UTC)
The following editor is keep deleting sourced information from "Sanaz Alasti" article: 220.127.116.11 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sorenaaryamanesh (talk • contribs) 06:44, 10 December 2012 (UTC) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/18.104.22.168 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sorenaaryamanesh (talk • contribs) 07:00, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
- Hi Sorenaaryamanesh. Obviously the content of that article is the source of some debate. Both 'sides' however are behaving outside policy. Could you present a rationale for why the content should be included, in the talk page, if you're familiar with the content, in order to broach a debate? -Rushyo Talk 08:30, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
Some people are coming here with an agenda. They are not here to edit and improve the projects, they are here to defame and attack specific articles. If you check the contribution of Kabirat, 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199, they are just interested in editing articles on Sanaz Alasti, Lily Mazahery and Amir-Abbas Fakhravar. Their attempt is obviously political. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sorenaaryamanesh (talk • contribs) 09:14, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
- For all intents and purposes, you appear to be a single purpose account as well. Should we assume you are here to accomplish a political goal as well? Instead we assume good faith. I assure you the status of the accounts and focuses of the editors involved has not escaped my attention. That's why I got involved. I don't care either way about the article's subject FWIW. Ultimately changes will end up being fixed based on consensus amongst the editors involved. That means going on to the talk page and discussing things. -Rushyo Talk 12:15, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
Please identify the defamatory material you accuse me of posting. Lily Mazahery was found by a DC Court of Appeals of misrepresenting human rights victims by taking money that was donated to the victims to assist them in their living expenses for her own personal benefit. She was also found responsible for threatening them with deportation if they failed to assist in promoting her. She was also found responsible for failing to adequately file their asylum claims. All of those findings are sourced and can be found here: http://www.dcbar.org/download.cfml?filename=for_lawyers/ethics/discipline/pdf/hearing_committee/HCLilyMazahery21709etal.
What I did is modify her profile since the bits and pieces you left here conflict with one another. For instance, it states " Mazahery's practice primarily focuses on limmigration law and international human rights." Thats untrue, she was suspended from practicing, so that can't remain in the active form. It also states "Mazahery is a strong advocate of women's rights and equal legal treatment of men and women in all cultures and societies." The woman was found guilty by a COURT OF LAW for abusing her clients and stealing money intended for a woman in Iran on death row!
- If you add unsourced, potentially defamatory text about a user it will be removed. If you have evidence then cite these as references per Wikipedia:Citing sources. I suggest you get on the appropriate article's talk page and discuss your content with other members. You are clearly in dispute with other editors, so it behoves you to attempt to reach a WP:consensus rather than wedging stuff in. You seem to be unfamiliar with both Wikipedia policy and copyright law, ergo you'd do well to read up on both.
- Before you go further please read and re-read WP:BLP in particular. -Rushyo Talk 08:20, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
- Re-read the article I linked to, because that same article was linked and footnoted to the entire paragraph you suggest was defamatory. Once you agree with me that it is not defamatory, I will proceed on updating the page - again. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kabirat (talk • contribs) 08:36, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
- Well I can provide my opinion but generally something like this should be discussed publicly on the article talk page to broach WP:consensus. I think it's a good source and should be included. Just avoid edits that make scathing accusations or add a non WP:NPOV to the article. Having a source that says someone is, completely for example, 'pure evil' does not give an editor the right to refer to the person as 'pure evil' in an article. It allows you only to state that a certain WP:reliable source says they are 'pure evil'. A good source is not a ticket to disparage the subject of an article. -Rushyo Talk 08:44, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
- I will edit again to make more balanced. But would you agree with me that a person who has been found guilty for misrepresenting human rights victims should not be listed as being "known for" assisting human rights victims. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kabirat (talk • contribs) 09:12, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Leveson Inquiry. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.
Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:
- Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
- Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.
If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. Jimthing (talk) 22:29, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
- You're joking, right? I haven't reverted one thing of yours on that article. Making a point in this way is disruptive editing and may get you blocked on its own. -Rushyo Talk 22:32, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
- If you agree, then why bother to issue me with the warning, when it's the other side that keeps reverting the info in a disruptive manor? Jimthing (talk) 22:47, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
- You were about to get yourself blocked under the three revert rule which quite explictly applies even if you are right. If you want to resolve this dispute, head over to WP:Dispute resolution and see what your options are. There are tons of options which do not involve edit warring. Take a deep breath and remember that there are no deadlines. -Rushyo Talk 22:52, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
- If you agree, then why bother to issue me with the warning, when it's the other side that keeps reverting the info in a disruptive manor? Jimthing (talk) 22:47, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
Amir Abbas Fakhravar
Siavash's comments constitute an improper attempt at "outing" WP:OUTING
- Hi Siavash, I'm afraid I'm not sure what the issue is. Whilst Kabirat certainly has a history of disruptive editing he seems to be making a good effort to add sources and maintain a reasonably neutral point of view. Some of his edits are, in fact, a solid improvement to the article's quality. I'm afraid if you have a problem with these changes you need to discuss them on the article's talk page and express your concerns in open discussion. I do not see any clear violations of WP:BLP. If there are any could you please be more specific? -Rushyo Talk 20:32, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
- Erased by User:Rushyo. DO NOT REVEAL PERSONAL INFORMATION ON WIKIPEDIA -Rushyo Talk 20:50, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
Please note that Sorenaaryamanesh is involved in an editing war by removing unbiased primary source material intended to remove POV of article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kabirat (talk • contribs) 20:52, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
- Primary source material does not, generally, meet the criteria for a reliable source. Poorly sourced material on a WP:BLP can and should be reverted. Quality sourcing is really, really important on WP:BLP articles. -Rushyo Talk 20:55, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
- Point taken. Most of the material is currently sourced to blog postings or conservative sides associated with the author. Very little is sourced to a proper item. I've only sourced to credible newspapers and magazines. And yet everything is being removed, with the remaining material again being sourced almost purely to blogs or nothing at all. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kabirat (talk • contribs) 20:58, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
- The following account has has a history of disruptive editing. He is adding controversial issues to articles. controversial issues should be discussed under talk. His sources are not reliable:
- Sorenaaryamanesh, I am well aware of your own disruptive editing as well. Indeed that's what got me involved in this dispute in the first place. You are not merely removing the sources, you are exchanging them with your own view point making it very hard for me to resolve. If you want to discuss the content, do so. I do not see you debating the sources on the talk page. -Rushyo Talk 21:08, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
Rushyo, I've been trying, as you have, to get the editors of this article to talk to each other rather than continually revert, but with little success. I can see that one "side" is making more of an effort to make the article neutral than the other, but both are edit warring. I would really prefer not to get too involved in a behavioural dispute, and would like to step back from this, but only if I know that someone else has picked up the baton. Will continue to monitor this, and do whatever is needed to involve admins with blocking or protection or whatever else is needed, so that I can get on with more pleasant activities such as banging my head against a brick wall? Phil Bridger (talk) 21:35, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
- Absolutely. To be perfectly honest somebody tried to mug me today so an edit war barely registers on my stress radar. Enjoy the freedom from wikistress! -Rushyo Talk 21:42, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
- The user Siavash777 continues to revert all changes without engaging in a discussion about them despite my best efforts. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kabirat (talk • contribs) 05:57, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
- Please engage in WP:Dispute resolution. Edit warring solves nothing and will just get you blocked. If I see another revert on that page I'm going to report it, I don't care which party does it or why. Reverting stuff does not solve the problem. You may wish to try the Biographies of Living Persons noticeboard. -Rushyo Talk 09:11, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
- I thought I did. I've provided a basis for all of my changes in the talk page to engage in a discussion on the matter. Instead of engaging me on the topic to resolve the matter, the individual Siavash777 has reverted all changes without any basis. What more should I do in that situation? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kabirat (talk • contribs) 09:18, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
- As I've said you need to engage in WP:Dispute resolution. I recommend the Biographies of Living Persons noticeboard for this purpose. Bringing in the wider community can help build consensus for changes. It's a good first step. Don't worry about time, there's no deadline. -Rushyo Talk 13:03, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
- Let me explain! Kabirat that we know who he is, has a personal and Idealogical problem with Amir Abbas Fakhravar and wants to use wikipedia to discredit him. He used the same tactic to discredit Lily Mazahery and Deleted Dr. Sanaz Alasti's page. To give you an example of his miss behavior please look at Amir Fakhravar's page you will see Kabirat is using one article on an Unreliable news blog called '"Mother Jones"' against Fakhravar to discredit him. In this particular Article you can find several rummers and (He said, she said) without any single fact. Kabirat is using this article twice as a reference to destroy Fakhravar's reputation with rummers on a blog. Please check reference number  and number  on this page and you will see it is just the same article on Mother Jones blog. Kabirat using this article on biography and also Controversy part to criticize Amir Abbas Fakhravar. You will find many other miss behavior from Kabirat on his editing on this particular page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Siavash777 (talk • contribs) 13:44, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
- I am aware of all of this but, frankly, neither 'side' in this is doing themselves any favours. User:Kabirat is at least editing in good faith. I care about ensuring Wikipedia articles are appropriate and, even more than that, editors are not being harassed or threatened. Harassment is not acceptable. Stop tracking down other editors. The page will eventually be brought in to line with Wikipedia policies regardless of how many edits that may take in the short term. That means it will eventually comply with WP:NPOV and WP:RS. Your issue will be resolved in time but we have our own methods for dealing with dispute resolution that do not involve political strong-arming. We believe in civility and respect for other editors and we deal with content in articles rather than editors themselves whenever feasible. We take WP:BLP editing very seriously, which is in fact why I became involved in this dispute (because I want to ensure Amir's article is up to standard, neutral and respects the subject), but we have no tolerance for the harassment of other editors either. You are not helping. If you step away from this discussion and away from the other editors, you will find we have millions of pages just like this one where we have complex and intelligent policies that can deal with it. Your intervention is disrupting that process and actually preventing us from resolving it in good time because we have to go through this elaborate maze of WP:Personal attacks, WP:Harassment and WP:Edit warring. If you back off you will find things get resolved far more smoothly. -Rushyo Talk 13:59, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
Per your suggestion, I've begun a discussion about changes here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Biographies_of_living_persons/Noticeboard#Amir_Abbas_Fakhravar. Proposals have been given for change. Once a consensus is made, how do we proceed on making edits? Kabirat (talk) 11:00, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
- You can request un-protection when you think there's a reasonable argument for doing so (ie. there is a reasonable consensus on the text). You may want to create a draft in your user-space that people can comment on (perhaps a carbon copy of the page with your proposed changes included). If there's agreement regarding that then that could become the de facto baseline moving forward. -Rushyo Talk 12:15, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
