{{helpme}} Hey, general request - there's possibly a math error on the [Quaternions] page but I'm not enough of an editor to figure out how to add the 'article in need of an expert' tag. a) could somebody explain WHERE the freekin tags like that are cataloged? b) could somebody look at this article and deal with it?

Re: Request for comment[edit]

Those seem but it is wise to check - I am not sure conflict of interest stretches that far but it is always best to make sure you have covered the angles to avoid finger pointing.

In regard to your comments, you might also want to look at this Eunuch#The hijra of India, as not only is the surname spelt wrong, but it goes into some detail that is both unnecessary (and violates BLP?) and is unsourced. I'd also question the need for it there (especially unsourced) and feel it would be either be worth a brief mention there with a broader overview on the main page (although not anything that violates BLP, like unsourced details of someone's surgery).

If that seems a reasonable assessment then I'll remove it (unless you can think of a better approach). (Emperor (talk) 20:38, 24 November 2008 (UTC))

Removed it. I think the mention on the main article is sufficient, at least as supported by the sources.
You may also be correct about sock puppets - that was added by a SPA. You might want to collect the difs and see if a picture emerges. Here is the one from that article: [1]. It may well be worth running it past the check user admins to see what they come up with. (Emperor (talk) 00:06, 27 November 2008 (UTC))

Request for help[edit]

WP:SPA is a singel purpose account.

So if you go to the Rachel Pollack history page you see the recent edits. The two accounts you are talking about are Scent of jasmine, Tapir from south america, I Love Tarot, Magyar Kiss Kiss and April fool's lass and SephardiSpain. The "dif" is just the difference beteen their post and the previous one - which is just the "last" link in the history which you can copy and paste to give you [2], [3], [4], [5] and [6] and [7], respectively. It is also clear some of the SPAs on that page know the identities of editors [8]. Note also that the same IP from the Pollack page, , also added back the section I removed from the Eunuch article [9]. Note the only SPA to edit another article Magyar Kiss Kiss edited one of the articles the IP has also edited [10] and [11]/[12]. Looking down that article's history we also see various SPAs.

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner but I've been busy elsewhere. It looks like there are an awful lot of suspect accounts and I don't think I'd have the time to go through all the edit histories and extract all the difs but hopefully the above should prove helpful in doing that.

You can make a checkuser request (see WP:RCU) but I am unsure if it falls somewhere between the criteria they are looking for and areas where this would be rejected - I suspect if it is violating WP:BLP and going against consensus, leading to repeated reversions then that could count as vandalism. I'll ask for more advice on this. (Emperor (talk) 21:23, 15 December 2008 (UTC))

I've started Wikipedia:Suspected sock puppets/ to deal with the preponderance of single-purpose, single-edit accounts. There may be some debate over whether the edits are a violation of WP:BLP or not (I think they are, but some might see it as mere content dispute). But it is clear that this editor is trying to "out" you, and that is a clear violation of Wikipedia policy. There's a large backlog of sock puppet cases, however, so this may take a while to sort out. This issue could also be reported to WP:AN/I, but I thought it would more profitable to go the "suspected sock puppets" route. --GentlemanGhost (talk) 22:08, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Rachel Pollack[edit]

Heh. That was a quick revert. :-)

It's not a point I'd want to war over, but I will be genuinely interested to hear your reasoning, if you're willing to offer it on the talk page.

Thanks for the note - looks like their attention is largely on Spanish football teams but if they swing past again feel free to slap a vandalism warning on them. They are on a fast-track to getting themselves banned so we may as well help them on their way if they do it again. (Emperor (talk) 23:30, 10 February 2009 (UTC))


I have removed the personal information from that talk page, citing WP:OUTING. Thanks for catching it. --GentlemanGhost (talk) 18:48, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

I greatly appreciate that transsexuals are people[edit]

and the related people that I know are are great.

I also appreciate that you may have views on best forms of presentation and your contribution would likely be helpful at Talk:Transsexualism#Requested move 8 March 2015.

As per the discussion at Talk:Azerbaijani_people#Requested_move_14_February_2015 I similarly appreciate that "Azerbaijanis" are just as much people as "Azerbaijani people" but also appreciate that in our fiercely prejudice and bigoted world other forms of presentation may be necessary in some cases when OR if necessary.
