Edit warring at Poutine[edit]

Your recent editing 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. Please take your suggested addition to the talk page of the article. Dbrodbeck (talk) 13:43, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

I am the person whose addition of a bit of information about "Poutine" - namely that it is the French spelling of President Putin's name - has been repeatedly reverted. Yet I am the one accused of "engaging in an edit war." If it's that important to whoever fancies themself the owner of this article, then he or she may keep their ownership, with my compliments. I'd ask them to reflect, however, on what their attitude does to the principle of the "people's encyclopedia." Personally I prefer to save my energy for a battle over a less idiotic article.

If you want to add something it is up to you to show why it belongs. I have started a discussion on the talk page talk:Poutine, you might want to look there. Dbrodbeck (talk) 14:07, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Circumcision as "elective"[edit]

Circumcision may be an "elective" procedure, but if "elective" means that the individual on whom the procedure is being performed has given his or her consent, that cannot be the case with circumcision of infants. A newborn child cannot give his consent. The "consent" is given by the parents (or one parent) in the child's place. Therefore I feel that the term "elective" should be removed, or at least that the fact be noted in the article that many men feel that circumcision is mutilation and that they have suffered an irreparable loss without their consent. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lestrad (talkcontribs) 03:56, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
