Problematic material[edit]

User:Maple08syrup, a single purpose account, wants to add a section called "Recent News" with this sentence: "On June 27, 2011, an Ontario Court found that in the civil action Martinek v. Dojc, that allegedly defamatory e-mails were sent to members of a Yahoo! group and that the action must be re-tried." The cite is to a blog written by lawyers that is affiliated with the Guardian as part of a "network" of blogs.

The material suffers from multiple problems. First, it is not a reliable source. Although it is loosely affiliated with the Guardian, it is not hosted by the Guardian, and there is no indication that the Guardian exercises any kind of editorial control over the material. Second, the material lacks context as to the case and how it fits into Dojc's career, and even whether anything about it belongs in the article. Third, it is incoherent. The actual sentence from the blog - and it is only sentence as it's not a post about the case but a post about many cases - is: "In Canada in Martinek v. Dojc, 2011 ONSC 3795 the Ontario Superior Court of Justice ordered a re-trial in a libel case based on the publication of alleged defamatory emails to members of a Yahoo group." Maple's rephrasing of that sentence is pretty bad.

Another editor reverted the material. Maple put it back in. I reverted the material. Maple put it back in. I reverted a second time, and Maple put it back in (where it currently stands). I've posted a 3RR warning on Maple's Talk page (he's been blocked before for edit-warring and BLP violations with respect to this article, the only article he edits).

I intend to revert one more time, particularly because of the BLP issues, and invite Maple to discuss the material here.--Bbb23 (talk) 16:16, 9 October 2011 (UTC)


There is no reason to posit that "inforrm" is anything more than blog. [1] Fill out this one-step form and you’ll be blogging seconds later! does not appear to show anything remotely near editorial control. Cheers. Collect (talk) 17:09, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
