March 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. The recent edit you made to Yeshiva University has been reverted, as it introduced negative or controversial biographical material without providing a reliable source for this information. Wikipedia requires that all such material be sourced to address the issue of libel. Thank you. Geoff Who, me? 01:39, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Your edits to Yeshiva University[edit]

Hi there: let me explain why I gave you the warnings above. Unless you add a specific reference to a reliable, totally disinterested third-party source that specifically states that he committed a massacre or is alleged to have done so, and without that source being added at the exact same time that you add the allegation, that edit is potentially libellous and places Wikipedia in serious legal jeopardy. This is a common way that vandals try to damage the encyclopedia; by adding spectacular allegations of wrongdoing about random notable (and litigious) people without any references.
If you can't find a third-party reference - a reliable neutral newspaper or other uninterested party like the New York Times or the Globe and Mail (and if the allegation has been made by a reliable source, finding such a source should be extremely simple) - we can't state what you want to say. I encourage you to read our policy on reliable sources, a neutral point of view, and verification, which go further into exactly why we can't take the words of anonymous users in circumstances such as this. Cheers! --NellieBly (talk) 01:00, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
