toxic[edit]

Next time you want to remove information take the time to at least edit the article to include the references to how poisonous the unripe fruit is. I would much rather have a reference that would save peoples lifes than have an admin that wants to troll. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podophyllum — Preceding unsigned comment added by SGT-Craig (talkcontribs) 18:35, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

@SGT-Craig: Firstly, we are not a dietary advice service and "saving people's lives" is not a function of Wikipedia. Your behaviour at Talk:Agenda 21 made clear to me that your edits required close scrutiny and I make no apologies for doing so as an administrator. Your material was removed for a very clear reason - it was a copyright violation as you had just copied the source word-for-word. I was under no obligation to re-add the material in another form - personally it looked unencyclopedic to me but I'll leave the article as it is for now. However, if the point has not been made clear already, if you add copyrighted material to Wikipedia again, you will blocked. Simple. CT Cooper · talk 11:32, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

When you read something that clearly shows a plants fruit in an unripe state to be a poison you remove it? You might want to rethink that rather than just hit delete. Wikipedia may not be a "dietary service" or a service to "save peoples lifes" but just a tad of common sense would go far here especially as a admin. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SGT-Craig (talkcontribs) 14:20, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

@SGT-Craig: It's unfortunate that "common sense" does not extend to understanding that it's inappropriate to copy other people's work then pass it off as your own. CT Cooper · talk 19:32, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

@Cooper - This might come as a shock but your going to have to use some common sense next time in your edits. You can not just haphazard make edits that might get people hurt just for the sake of it. With great admin power comes great responsibility. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SGT-Craig (talkcontribs) 21:04, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

@SGT-Craig: I hope you apply the same level of caution and courtesy to your future edits. CT Cooper · talk 19:45, 26 June 2016 (UTC)

@Cooper - Always cooper, I can't let admins just edit things and get people hurt. :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by SGT-Craig (talkcontribs) 15:56, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
