Copyright issue[edit]

This was not a copyright issue. It is easy to say this to discourage what you do nto want posted. Very disingenuous. I did not add this. I salvaged what was done by a different user. I do not know why you do not wish information about libraries to be included in Wikipedia.

There are watchers that do not want the National Library of Pakistan to have an entry. They undo UNCOPYRIIGHHTED entries and state this is the reason why they are deleting. It is clear what they are doing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Brooksky (talkcontribs) 11:59, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

@Brooksky You have gone too far by judging my intentions that too based on your ignorance, so I suggest you stop right there. About that content it was copied from The Library: An Illustrated History by Stuart Murray that happens to be a copyrighted work. -- SMS Talk 18:27, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Smsarmad. Do not threaten me as having gone too far. You are a bully. You removed articles, footnotes and citations last night then said these were from Murray. The edits I made last night were to footnoted items about the library. In all other places Wikipedia retains the edits in the history and mine are gone. There is no reason that citations to important articles should be deleted by Smsarmad. Smsarmad is insisting this is a copyright issue. I am fearful for the future of Wikipedia if Smsarmad thinks footnotes are copyright violations. These are the footnotes that Smsarmad.removed:

Ahmad, Pervaiz. 2008. "The National Library of Pakistan: an overview." IFLA Journal 34, no. 1: 90-98. Muhammad Waris, B. (2014). National Library of Pakistan as Legal Depository. Pakistan Library & Information Science Journal. 45(1), 18-23.Brooksky (talk) 13:40, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

There appear to be people watching this site that want no information about this library to be posted. The information about the library is not copyrighted. Smsarmad has removed articles, footnotes and citations. Edits I made last night were to footnoted items about the library. In all other places Wikipedia retains the edits in the history and mine are gone from the National Library of Pakistan's history page. WHY?. There is no reason that citations to important articles should be deleted by Smsarmad. Smsarmad is insisting this is a copyright issue. I am fearful for the future of Wikipedia if Smsarmad thinks footnotes are copyright violations. These are the footnotes that Smsarmad.removed: Ahmad, Pervaiz. 2008. "The National Library of Pakistan: an overview." IFLA Journal 34, no. 1: 90-98. Muhammad Waris, B. (2014). National Library of Pakistan as Legal Depository. Pakistan Library & Information Science Journal . 45(1), 18-23. Why would Smsarmad remove these?Brooksky (talk) 13:44, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

This has nothing to do with citations and is all about the text and the personal attacks are entirely unwarranted. Brooksky has been reverted by 3 editors. Dougweller (talk) 14:21, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Peace to all librarians; especially women librarians whose voices have been put away for our editing at this site.The censors won. There is now no information or citations for the National Library Pakistan. There are men on Wikipedia who come in from all directions to do suppression of information about this wonderful library... They may think they are clever and have won the fight to suppress knowledge, but knowledge has a way of breaking free. Namaste. Brooksky (talk) 14:56, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
