Krauthammer vs. John Edwards[edit]

Information.svg

Welcome to Wikipedia. Thank you for your contributions. As a member of the Wikipedia community, I would like to remind you of Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy for editors. In the meantime, please be bold and continue contributing to Wikipedia.

Please stop inserting the POV version. The original Krauthammer reference is there for everyone to check it out, but he was reacting to a misquote, which is an important point of the whole thing and thoroughly referenced. Not including this fact into the article is not NPOV and deleting it can be seen as vandalism. Kncyu38 07:56, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Bad [faith] try. See the talk page of the article and stop making lame insinuations of policy violations. 129.71.73.248 06:57, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
Most certainly not bad faithed, on that much I insist. Concerning this piece of mind from you: As you may see, I quite consciously changed the sentence concerning Krauthammer from the incorrect (and, yes, POV-ish sounding) misquote to the correct quote. Someone else (I don't know or care who) had at one point seemingly "fantasy-quoted" Krauthammer in the edit which you so much contend. I propose (good-faithed as ever, maybe even naive) the following: a) CALM THE FUCK DOWN, PLEASE. b) how about "it was later quoted as "When John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve are going to walk. Get up out of that wheelchair and walk again." Progressive research and information center Media Matters argued that this had been a misquote and, when the entire quote is used, "Edwards was premising 'people like Christopher Reeve' 'walk[ing] again' on the outcome of research that a Kerry administration would support." That's as far as I can or will go, and we will see how other editors react. If, however, this proposition should be contested by other people, I will leave it to them. -- Btw: And sorry for my tone, thing is, I just fucked up an important exam IRL, and not because I wasn't well-prepared, but because the fucking medical professor is a fucking tit-obsessed dental-care-students favouring drunk piece of Prussian sailor shit.

No surprise[edit]

RE: Alliance for Progress‎

I warned the person who gave a third party opinion that you may not be satisfied with the deletion of the quote. I am disappointed that you are not satisfied that the quote has now been removed. I suggest taking the time to do research on this subject, and adding references and material. Travb (talk) 12:22, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

You have contributed absolutly nothing to this article and you are wasting my time. I am going to have the third party person make an opinion, then start a RfC. Travb (talk) 07:57, 7 October 2007 (UTC)
My mistake, I see that you have contributed a lot to other articles, including referenced material. My apologies. Travb (talk) 21:29, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Blocked for edit warring[edit]

You have been blocked for 24 hours for edit warring at Guenter Lewy. While you may not have literally broken the three-revert rule, you have nonetheless allowed an edit war to continue for several days. Heimstern Läufer (talk) 07:08, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

I have attempted to discuss the issue, whereas the other individual declared outright that he has no intention of acknowledging any edit or opinion of mine. I am not a process fetishist who will be carted off by official distractions like "mediation" for something so trivial, so what other avenue is there but to state my intentions and see it through? The only other user who has spoken on the substance of the matter leans towards my edit. The user in question "opposing" me does so for personal reasons, as he has on articles such as Abbie Hoffman, where he reverted my deletion of spurious, unsourced content simply because it was my edit. At present the issue can be boiled down to this: it is a fight over a stylistic format change that is necessary and due, but since the person who made the change is myself he will not concede to it unless he is coaxed or coerced into doing so by other editors. My actions are solely in the interest of modestly improving the article in question, whereas this editor is attempting to throw up a roadblock and probably wishes for interventions even if he is rebuked in similar terms (because it "establishes" that I have "done something wrong" and therefore any dispute later will be viewed as a continuation of "bad behavior"). I have (quietly) seen this process play out numerous times on this site, and judging by your personal page about Wikipedia problems I would be astonished if you could not see it in play here. 129.71.73.248 20:55, 31 October 2007 (UTC)
If you aren't interested in dispute resolution, there's not much I can do for you except advise you that continuing to edit war will bring more of the same results, and the blocks will likely get longer. Sorry, can't give you anything else. Heimstern Läufer (talk) 02:10, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
I am not interested in becoming a mini-process lawyer over a trivial dispute. If you can advise a solution that is fast and binding, I am interested. Otherwise it is clear that your intentions are oriented around punishment rather than resolution of the issues involved. Tell me, what do you expect should happen with the article in the meantime, that some tag will be placed over a minor stylistic change to note that there is an edit conflict, or that the article be left as is (with his edit intact) and the issue dropped because he simply refuses to discuss it? What do you see as a realistic outcome to this? Are you simply on patrol and uninterested in the actual content? Because so far I see people criticizing the fact that there is an edit war but not actually dealing with the substance of the edits or the reason for Travb's behavior. 129.71.73.248 05:27, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, that's pretty much it. I made the block because of edit warring with no consideration for the content. Indeed, it could hardly be considered equitable if I had taken the content into consideration. Edit warring is against the principles of Wikipedia. One of the reasons blocking exists is to prevent it. As for a solution that is fast and binding, no, I have nothing to suggest. Arbitration is binding, but it is not fast, and you generally must pursue other steps of dispute resolution first. So, there's really no way for you to go except to dispute resolution or to drop the issue. If you and Travb continue to edit war, you'll just end up blocked again, which is no solution at all. Heimstern Läufer (talk) 06:40, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

This is really no solution at all. Say that I revert, place a tag noting that there is a dispute in the article, and try to start some dispute resolution process. Does that count as edit warring, even if Travb does not cooperate? What beyond this concession to policy am I supposed to do? Just give up and allow that one person can halt my edits simply by being obstinate? It appears now, looking at his block history, that these sort of actions are a recurring event. I was not asking you to mediate the content dispute itself but to suggest what will realistically solve it. As of now, he has no reason to do anything because his edit stands, but does one revert (of mine) merit a block? Does his subsequent revert merit a block to both of us? I see no actual written policy for these questions nor any possible way to avoid being construed as continuing an "edit war" going forward besides simply giving in. 129.71.73.247 19:45, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

April 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, your addition of one or more external links to the page List of energy resources has been reverted.
Your edit here to List of energy resources was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links which are discouraged per our external links guideline. The external link(s) you added or changed (http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Lifestream Mako-Lifestream Energy) is/are on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. If the external link you inserted or changed was to an external Wiki, then please note that these links should generally not be included (see 'links to avoid' #12).
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other, constructive, changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link. Please read Wikipedia's external links guideline for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page.
