Steeletrap[edit]

Since you know that she doesn't value your opinion or advice, why not follow my lead on her talk page and reserve comment on her current concerns. There can't be anything constructive about unsolicited advice. Perhaps you're familiar with Machiavelli's words on the subject. SPECIFICO talk 18:03, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Yep, I think your advice is wise. No point in further direct interaction. alanyst 18:08, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Yasin al-Qadi[edit]

Thank you for considering this BLP page and our earlier comments on it. Following your initial amendments to the page on 5 July, we should be grateful if you would also consider the other element of our Edit Request from 19 June, regarding the inclusion on this page of an image of the World Trade Centre attacks. Carter-Ruck (on behalf of Sheikh Yassin Abdullah Kadi) (talk) 09:55, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

I have removed the image on BLP grounds, though not without some hesitation. To the extent that it suggests culpability in the Sept. 11 terror attacks, I agree that the BLP policy weighs against its inclusion in the article. However, the allegations of al Qaeda links (valid or invalid; I do not offer an opinion here) are such a notable part of Mr. Kadi's life story that one could argue the photo is illustrative of the event that triggered the sanctions against your client. As you can tell, I have chosen to err on the side of caution regarding the photo, and have removed it on those grounds.
Regarding the rest of the article, I have long felt it to be bloated and full of innuendo, reliant in some places on poor sources, and out of date. I have begun a slow process of rebuilding the article, starting with a careful examination of the sources cited in the article to cull them for objective facts and to evaluate their overall reliability according to Wikipedia's standards. This will take quite a while due to other real life obligations commanding my attention, but I do intend to see it through. You may follow my progress in this task at User:Alanyst/sandbox/Yasin al-Qadi. If you have knowledge of other reliable sources that discuss your client that are not found in the current version of the article, please suggest them on the main article's talk page so they too may be evaluated. alanyst 13:33, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
We note that you have begun to rebuild the article using a sandbox page, and should be grateful for your continued efforts with this. We anticipate proposing additional sources and amendments on the discussion page, with a view to improving the article’s accuracy further. Carter-Ruck (on behalf of Sheikh Yassin Abdullah Kadi) (talk) 15:06, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
I note from your comment of 11 February 2016 that you are reviewing our edit requests of 4 and 10 February 2016, and I should be grateful for your feedback in this respect. I will shortly be posting some further suggested amendments on the Talk page of this article, which I should be grateful if you would also kindly review.Carter-Ruck (on behalf of Sheikh Yassin Abdullah Kadi) (talk) 15:59, 18 February 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for considering the request concerning the presentation of Mr Kadi's name in this article. I have posted some additional edit requests on 4 March 2016 to the article's Talk Page, and should be grateful if you would also please consider these proposed revisions.Carter-Ruck (on behalf of Sheikh Yassin Abdullah Kadi) (talk) 12:58, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]
