Ein Sof[edit]

I would hesitate to say the change you made is unjustified; but making a change to an article's name so that the name of the article coincides with the name of your own web site, and then linking the Kabbalah article to your site, makes it appear that you are trying to spam WP.

Ayn Sof[edit]

Accuracy of transliteration is not spam. I transliterated the Hebrew to English for the Ayn Sof Kabbalah Community website to accurately reflect the closest approximation in English to the Hebrew. Adding the Ayn Sof site to a rare few sites listed is not spam: it is diversity. You will most likely have more time on your hands to change the spelling, if you believe that makes the most sense. However, it is a less accurate mistake that should be corrected rather than called spam.

All the best, Rabbi Alyjah (talk) 14:13, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Ein Sof is very widely used, as on the Kabbalak Online site [1].
If you do not object, I will copy this discussion to the Kabbalah talk page so that other interested editors may comment. Malcolm Schosha (talk) 14:30, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Widespread use of something does not make it the most accurate or best choice. Feel free to post where ever seems best. I believe it would be a linguistic improvement if Ayn Sof became the "very widely used" as well as most fitting transliteration. On a side note, you mentioned on your page that you are open to emailing. I'm new to Wiki and wondering how folks email each other? I didn't see your email listed. I will most likely only be able to return to Wiki periodically, with lots of other work to do. Shabbat Shalom Rabbi Alyjah (talk) 14:42, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Ein Sof is widely used, which in the context of WP give its use justification. Perhaps, as an interim agreement, using both (with Ein Sof remaining the name of the article) would resolve the issue. Article talk page discussion (not user page discussion) is important.
You can find "E-mail this user" in the column to the left of this (or any) user page.
Savlanoot. I have been accused of being "heavy handed". Malcolm Schosha (talk) 14:57, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

I moved most of our discussion to the Kabbalah article talk page [2]. It might be best to make further comments there. I hope that you do not object.You can edit, or remove, anything of your own edits you do not want there. Malcolm Schosha (talk) 15:16, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
