August 2008[edit]

Information.png Welcome to Wikipedia. The recent edit you made to Lampedusa has been reverted, as it appears to be unconstructive. Use the sandbox for testing; if you believe the edit was constructive, ensure that you provide an informative edit summary. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing. Thanks. - Sorfane 11:44, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Lampedusa[edit]

You are injecting an obvious bias into the article. There is a diffrence between asylum seekers and illegal immagrants. I shall revert the article back to the way it was, but I think information about it should still be in the article. Try to stick to a neutral point of view when editing - words such as Eurocrats do not help. Thanks - Sorfane 11:54, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

I try to revert vandalism, and vandalism counts as putting biased material into the article. I feel that the word "crisis" would be a step too far in describing the problem that I have seen. The lead tries to sum up everything in the article, and I feel it does that with the current context. Could we keep the previous line that was in the lead, and then expand on the issue later on in the article? - Sorfane 12:01, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
OK, as it's all now cited we'll leave it as that. Sorry if I've caused any annoyance or offence, I'm just, like you, trying to make Wikipedia a better place ;). Thanks - Sorfane 12:10, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
