Edit warring[edit]

I don't necessarily agree with Strgzr1's version (mainly because the lede section was removed and there just isn't enough to be broken up into different sections), but I don't necessarily agree with the prior version either. "Similarities/differences" could use more references to back it up instead of just the one. If more references are added, then I'll support it being re-added. I think we could do-away with the "Historical use" section altogether. That's just my opinion. Strgzr1: I suggest you stop reverting (and edit warring with others who don't agree with you) and use the talk page to gain a consensus. Also, don't ask for another opinion if you don't like it.

I made an edit and asked for input--so far looks to be acceptable regarding the citadel's use of all students (military cadets+day/night undergrad/grad civilian students), while VMI remains 100% military cadets. This "Military Classic" seems fairly one-sided and there is talk of discontinuing the "rivalry".Strgzr1 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 20:01, 9 May 2017 (UTC)
I don't have a fundamental issue with the edit in the article. I dispute the second sentence of what you wrote above, as we've discussed ad nauseum in the past. I would like to see reliable sources supporting talk of discontinuation before anything along those lines is introduced into the article. I have heard no one discuss it as a one-sided rivalry or its demise from anyone but you. Billcasey905 (talk) 23:51, 9 May 2017 (UTC)
Totally agree, Bill--That's precisely why just the published facts of different enrollments and student composition of teams (with no mention of discontinuing the rivalry) is in the article as it currently stands. Completely dissolving the game or rivalry will be difficult now that VMI is once again in the Southern Conference and they must play the Citadel, but VMI alumni are expressing interest in discontinuing the play for the "Silver Shako" trophy which is awarded. You're right, it's something being discussed at the school and among alumnus but something that does not have publications to support adding to Wiki. It's a tough spot to be forced to play for something that is emblematic of military schools when just one of the teams on the field is a military school while the other is more of a hybrid. Same thing happened with Virginia Tech and the original Military Classic of the South.Strgzr1 (talk) 13:28, 10 May 2017 (UTC)
How much longer are the editors going to put up with this guys vandalism, lies and unreferenced disinformation???????? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:149:8100:B951:9963:681A:552A:73A3 (talk) 02:33, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

strgzr says he is 'interested in accuracy' yet he repeatedly makes edits that are misleading or downright false and aren't backed up by references. He claims to 'not care a whit about The Citadel or VMI' but his inappropriate posts, snide remarks and insults tell a different story. His bias clearly violates the wiki rule on conflict of interest, he is being submitted for permanent ban.Bob80q (talk) 21:09, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
