Objection to unwarranted and unexplained reversions by Americatcp[edit]

Americatcp, you have repeatedly reverted my efforts to improve this article - efforts to which I have devoted no little time and attention - with inadequate or no explanation. Please note that I am reverting your latest reversion and hereby request that you discuss with me on this talk page whatever problems you find in my edits before further altering them. You're attention and courtesy in this matter will be appreciated. Dayirmiter (talk) 04:10, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

You claim to wish to improve the article, and yet instead of just “removing a bad source” you are amending the rest of the text and other sourced information. I reverted your edit because not only did I explicitly explain why in the log (which you claim to have not seen) but because you’re not actually improving the article at all.Americatcp (talk) 06:05, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
The WP:DAILYMAIL should not be outright banned as a source, but it should not be used as a source for anything controversial.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 06:30, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
Then remove just what is sourced by the DM, not the rest of the information that’s sourced from the actual report? This isn’t improving the article this is bias editing.Americatcp (talk) 06:33, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
All I'm trying to do here is ensure compliance with WP:V. There are also some other tabloid citations, eg Mirror, which should be replaced.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 06:36, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
Understood, however that is not what Dayirmiter is doing, removing information cited from the report is not “trying to improve the Article” it is simply running his own narrative.Americatcp (talk) 06:38, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
Re this edit, it is not up to us as editors to work out their ages at the time the crimes were committed. The source does not make it explicit and nor should we, per WP:NOR and WP:SYNTH. And the article does not claim that they were men at the time. Ghmyrtle (talk) 14:08, 11 February 2018 (UTC)


Americatcp and RomanskiRUS have been blocked as socks. --NeilN talk to me 04:10, 17 February 2018 (UTC)
