Writing articles

single purpose account[edit]

Adrian CZ, Wikipedia is an encyclopedia that anyone can edit, and your contributions are appreciated. However, yours is clearly a single purpose account, as during your time at Wikipedia you have never edited any article other than Matthias Rath. I would encourage you to consider whether your proximity to the subject or other conflicts of interest may be impeding your NPOV on this topic. Thank you, Keepcalmandcarryon (talk) 23:03, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Keepcalmandcarryon, I was previously unaware of the single purpose account essay, so thanks for pointing me towards it. Whilst the Matthias Rath article is obviously of interest to me, and was the reason I started contributing to Wikipedia, I will try to look around to see where else I might also potentially be able to contribute.Adrian CZ (talk) 12:26, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the references[edit]

Adrian CZ, Thank you for providing references for some of Matthias Rath's qualifications. I have been confused by the DA flap from last summer, in which DA officials accused Rath of misrepresenting himself as a doctor, and Rath's lawyers (reportedly) responded by saying that the title 'Dr.' represents Rath's PhD. As someone who is obviously knowledgeable on the subject of Rath, could you help dispel my confusion here? Does Rath have a PhD in addition to his MD? And do you know why Rath's lawyers would not have stated that he was indeed a physician, just not licensed in SA? Thanks for your help. Keepcalmandcarryon (talk) 17:44, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Keepcalmandcarryon, I haven't seen the reported response to which you refer. Nor have I seen anything from Rath's lawyers on this either. All I can say is that he is both a practicing research scientist and an MD. Sorry I can't be of any more help.Adrian CZ (talk) 11:03, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
I linked one of the articles from the Rath talkpage. Here it is if you would like to take a look. Keepcalmandcarryon (talk) 16:57, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
