Accusations of harrassment

Please be careful with your accusations of stalking and harrassment - I have done no such thing. Yes, I have taken a look at your contributions (no doubt you have done the same with me), and I reverted four of your edits where I saw the need for it, but I would do the same with anyone else. You mention respect four times in your lengthy post on my talk page, yet you write something that is uncivil and could be interpreted as a personal attack by some.

As for the four edits in question:

  • On the Strait of Messina Bridge article, I kind of see your point about miles. However, I don't think it is really necessary and anyway there are 19 other places where a conversion to imperial might also be needed. Because Italy uses the metric system, the metric value should be first followed by the imperial value in parenthesis. If you want to add imperial conversions then please do so for the whole article; to help you, there is the very useful {{convert}} template, which could be used instead of using your calculator. Using the convert template means that a correction to a metric value does not result in the imperial value being left uncorrected leading to confusion and debate of the correct figure.
  • On the List of proverbial phrases article, the reference you supplied, went to exactly the same site as the previous reference, with exactly the same wording. The link to Burns and the current spelling and usage appears in the previous reference. Adding an alternative link for this one proverb is not really justified in the way you say. It might be useful to convert all 421 references to phrases.org.uk to point to the specific proverbs, but that would be a huge task and others might disagree about the usefulness of such an edit. Such a proposal should be debated on the article's talk page first.
  • On the Russia article, I reverted your edit because there really is no confusion over the term Eurasia, especially as the term is wikilinked right there. Also the reference you supplied is used elsewhere in the article - you should have used a named reference (see WP:REFB#Same reference used more than once).
  • On the John Cabot article, part of your edit is contradicted by the following paragraphs. In particular you said "In 1483, Cabot moved to Bristol..." yet the previous paragraph says "He ... is mentioned in a document of 1483 selling a slave in Crete..." Him moving to England is not mentioned until two paragraphs later where it says "...24 December 1494. After this Cabot appears to have sought support for an Atlantic expedition in Seville and Lisbon, before moving on to England." If you compare the sources, the academic researches of Department of Historical Studies at the University of Bristol to the Thinkquest article (which appears to be written by the children of "Bartlett Elementary School"), I know which I would choose as the more reliable.

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, you are reminded not to attack other editors. Please comment on the contributions and not the contributors. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. You are welcome to rephrase your comment as a civil criticism of the article. Thank you. Astronaut (talk) 11:14, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

when disrespect is so blatant (yet at the same time masqueraded as legitimate Wikipedia work, to fool hasty or pressed-for-time or even sloppy Admins), there's no real easy choice but to BOTH attack you as well as your edits. The two are inseparable. And I tried reasoning with you a bit nicer at first, which was to ZERO avail. Hence the blunter tone. You started this war. I'm just responding to the rudeness, stalking, and disrespect. And your violation of WP policy and recommendation. Most of your reverts were SIMPLY NOT NECESSARY. And neurotically checking on someone's contribs to try to look for faults is massively UNCOOL. And it's arguably a form of "hounding", which can get YOU blocked from Wikipedia, if constantly practiced. I've seen stalkers warned and even blocked before, by Admins whose patience grew tired with them. Archiver of Records (talk) 11:20, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
I am trying to assume good faith here. You talk about respect a lot, yet you are the one ranting on my talk page. Please take heed of my advice above before your continued personal attacks result in a block. Astronaut (talk) 11:27, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
How bout this. Leave me alone, don't follow me around, don't look at my contribs, don't revert anything I do, just stay away from me. You think you can manage that? I doubt it. You don't see that WP HOUNDING AND STALKING can result in a "block." Did you even read what I wrote carefully? Or just don't think you're guilty of anything? Whatever... Keep stalking me then. Hence, I'll have to maybe turn tables, and revert everything you do, and see how you like it... At this point, I don't care. Just get lost, chap... You and your hounding are not welcomed. Very simple. JUST STAY AWAY FROM ME. And there'll be no problem. (I know that obsessive compulsives like you can't help yourself though, so I won't expect you to keep your distance. It's not what stalkers do. But it would be nice if you could try hard.) Bye....Archiver of Records (talk) 11:33, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
