Unwanted comments[edit]

Please refrain from repeatedly adding unfriendly and unwanted comments to other users talk pages, as you did here. This is not conductive to improving the encyclopedia, and can be construed as harassment. Thanks. --Stephan Schulz (talk) 19:17, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

I did not, a friend was attacked by this user. I just defended him. If they simply would stop removing our edits on efforts to follow international legality, this would not have happened. Please, be so kind to understand our point of view and how critical this is for us. Follow the United Nations directives and all this discussion will be over. You have 20 million Greeks supporting this. Proving you that I willing to bring this to an appropriate end, I will cease all activities now and ask my friends to do so as well, even though I cannot warrant that. However, notice that Wikipedia is being considered every day more and more biased and impartial, and I do not think that this is what you want. Thank you. (talk) 19:23, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
To defend myself, I never attacked your friend. I pointed out the official Wikipedia policy to him and he attacked me. As for the Wikipedia policy (WP:MOSMAC) I didn't write the policy in question (though I support it) so I'm not able to say with any certainty why the policy looks the way it does. My guess is that Wikipedia respects the right of every country to call itself what it wants. Regarding the case in question, many countries regognise the country as FYROM and many other as the Republic of Macedonia. Wikipedia has chosed to respect the constitutional name of that country. I realise that some Greek users are unhappy with this, just as some users from the country in question would be unhappy if it was called FYROM. So unfortunately there seems to be no way of pleasing everybody. The solution to respect the constitutional name of every country is, in my opinion, the least bad. To be honest, I don't understand why this is such a big deal. I'm partly Belgian myself and we Belgians never complain about the country Luxembourg, although Luxembourg is also the name of a Belgian province. So we have exactly the same situation: one country (Greece/Belgium) with a region (Macedonia/Luxembourg) that is also used as the constitutional name of a neighbouring country.
