Were you not blocked for what you just did? I already know your account, so stop now ya? Darkness Shines (talk) 17:38, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

No that edit on Genocide of indigenous peoples in Brazil was an accident, just meant to correct the spelling mistake. Why are you reverting my correction of spelling? And no I was blocked for 3rr. (talk) 17:39, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Dude, that means you cannot edit for 24hrs ya? Darkness Shines (talk) 17:54, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

I was banned over 24hrs ago. There seriously is no issue. (talk) 17:57, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Do you mean other than the same shite you are doing again? What is you're issue with past genocides? Darkness Shines (talk) 18:19, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
You just changed a direct quote? What the hell is your issue? 18:24, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
I am reading it now, If I find you have been dicking about you are done. Darkness Shines (talk) 18:32, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Seriously you need to chill and stop swearing. You should probably take a look before reverting. It is 100% a direct quote from the source. And anyway how is that an excuse to revert the entire edit. If you had thought that I had made a quote up why didn't you just revert to the original Lewy quote or did you just want an excuse to remove it all. (talk) 18:35, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

"The Native Americans were most certainly targeted for extermination or conversion by many of the settlers" From the source you quoted, must try better ya? Darkness Shines (talk) 18:39, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

What are you on about? Type control F and insert "genocide was never American policy, nor was it the result of policy" and you'll find Lewy's statement near the bottom of his article. The quote you said is from the comments not the article.

You cannot use a comment for a source, see WP:RS. BTW I agree with your last edit. Darkness Shines (talk) 18:47, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Are you referring to your mistake? Neither of the quotes I added were from the comments. (talk) 18:50, 7 October 2013 (UTC) (talk) 18:47, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

No, "As for the larger society, even if some elements in the white population, mainly in the West, at times advocated extermination, no official of the U.S. government ever seriously proposed it. Genocide was never American policy, nor was it the result of policy." Taking the piss much? Never cherry pick a sentence again. Darkness Shines (talk) 18:54, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Im hardly cherry picking just quoting Lewy opinion on whether he believes the US government comitted genocide as a counter to Casarini and Stannard's claims that they did. Do I have to quote that US civilians sometmes harboured feeling of genocide? You havent exactly comitted doing anything unreasonable have you? (talk) 18:59, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

I am not disagreeing with you, I do not like the fact you took one sentence and ran with it, I just defended you at ANEW BTW. I am not a total tosser, but I want one more source from you which backs what you added, I can give you one but I figure you need to work for this. Darkness Shines (talk) 19:04, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for defending me. By other source do mean a scholarly source? (talk) 19:09, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Well dur Face-smile.svg Darkness Shines (talk) 19:12, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
Turns out that Lewy is a genocide denier and is fringe after all, see the talk page for genocides of indigenous people. You need a better source. Darkness Shines (talk) 03:38, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

October 2013[edit]

Information icon It may not have been your intention, but one of your edits, specifically one that you made on Genocides in history, may have introduced material that some consider controversial. Due to this, your edits may have been reverted. When adding material that may be controversial, it is good practice to first discuss the changes on the article's talk page before making them, to gain consensus over whether or not to include the text, phrasing, etc. If you believe that the information you added was correct, please initiate that discussion. Thank you. You just came off a 24-hour block for this. Please stop. GregJackP Boomer! 18:36, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Your recent editing history at Genocides in history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. GregJackP Boomer! 18:53, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

While we should avoid edit warring (rapid changing is not necessary or useful), please don't allow yourself to be intimidated by editors with a clear WP:BIAS themselves. They may know Wikipedia rules better than you. It doesn't make them WP:NPOV, themselves. Guenter Lewy, for example, is clearly WP:RS. Insisting that he is WP:FRINGE is preposterous.
