- Please bear these points in mind while editing Wikipedia
- Respect copyrights – do not copy and paste text or images directly from other websites.
- Maintain a neutral point of view – this is one of Wikipedia's core policies.
- Take particular care while adding biographical material about a living person to any Wikipedia page and follow Wikipedia's Biography of Living Persons policy. Particularly, controversial and negative statements should be referenced with multiple reliable sources.
- No edit warring or sock puppetry.
- If you are testing, please use the Sandbox to .
- Do not add troublesome content to any article, such as: copyrighted text, libel, advertising or promotional messages, and text that is not related to an article's subject. Deliberately adding such content or otherwise editing articles maliciously is considered vandalism; doing so will result in your account or IP being blocked from editing.
- Do not use talk pages as discussion or forum pages as Wikipedia is not a forum.
The Wikipedia tutorial is a good place to start learning about Wikipedia. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page. By the way, you can sign your name on Talk and discussion pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~ (the software will replace them with your signature and the date). Again, welcome!

Hello, I'm Dougweller. Wikipedia is written by people who have a wide diversity of opinions, but we try hard to make sure articles have a neutral point of view. Your recent edit to Sodom and Gomorrah seemed less than neutral to me, so I removed it for now. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Your deletions of sourced material seem to be a violation of NPOV. You also used a misleading edit summary. And " in dispute by archaeologists" is correct - that isn't the same as 'disputed by archaeologists', it means archaeologists disagree and is worded accurately Dougweller (talk) 07:17, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
Please do not add commentary or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles, as you did to Abraham. Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and breaches the formal tone expected in an encyclopedia. Thank you. These edits are worse. You called them edits for consistency and grammar, but you changed eras without discussion as required by WP:ERA and removed sourced text that is seems you didn't like. You don't appear to be agenda free. Have you edited before using any other accounts? Dougweller (talk) 07:20, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
