Fabrication of sources[edit]

BlackCab has alleged both on this page and at AN/I that you have fabricated sources. Please do not fail to continue to participate in the ongoing Administrators Noticeboard/Incidents debate mentioned above, as this is a very serious accusation. If this is a lie, it is also a grave matter that BlackCab must face. Carrite (talk) 17:46, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

I do dimly recall him saying this -this would have been about 3-4? years ago from memory. I cant recall any of the exact detail.I think the issue was that he could not find the section or information used by me-I may have put the wrong page number on in error. He may have looked in another edition? I tend to do research over several weeks from mant difrent sources and make jottings on paper as I go- so may have misread my handwriting. A simple human error. When he queried this I no longer had the book. That's how I recall the issue anyway. Since that time I have been much more careful to write pages numbers correctly. I suppose it would be good to put down the exact edition,especially if there has been a major rewrite. Thanks for your interest and concern.Claudia

For the record, I have listed three cases of fabricated citations at the ANI.[1] The incidents range from two years ago to 13 months ago. If you want to respond, it is best you do so at the Administrators Noticeboard/Incidents link provided above, rather than here. BlackCab (TALK) 23:51, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

I replied to the editor involved directly.Claudia

Per a discussion at WP:ANI. The block might be lifted if you will agree to create an account and promise to follow Wikipedia policy in the future. The concerns about your editing are documented in the ANI report. The most serious is that you may have been adding wrong information to Wikipedia due to mistakes or omissions in the referencing process and the use of bad sources. Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 18:54, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks.My refs are better than lots of others in wiki. Information in my edits is not wrong. Refs are all fine cf those used by some of the editors (including some involved in this ban!) who continue to knowingly use discredited authors. Using my refs I can find the source within 2-5 seconds- some editors are being pedantic and autocratic.
