Your changing the active voice to the passive voice[edit]

You repeatedly change the active voice -- which seasoned editors will tell you is clearly preferred -- to the passive voice, in your editing of the writing of the others. For example, you change "The Met summarily terminated ..." to "The Met would summarily terminate". That is poor writing, and a disservice to the reader. --2604:2000:E016:A700:11BC:600C:96E1:BB37 (talk) 19:17, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

My use of the passive voice "would summarily" as opposed to active voice in the particular situation noted is done so to make it clear that the very sudden and complete change in status of Levine's relationship with the Met has a very specific cause (i.e. made in response to the charges of sexual abuse) as opposed to being simply chronological which is something quite different. I'm sorry you failed to understand that, however as such it is neither "poor writing" nor is it a "disservice to the readers". Centpacrr (talk) 20:40, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

Poor practice; conflict of interest considerations[edit]

It is poor practice for you, as you did here https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:2604:2000:E016:A700:B01C:978D:2B04:D832&diff=814603838&oldid=814603492, revise your statement that has already been replied to. Above the reply.

Also -- as asked but not answered, have you considered the COI issues inherent in your editing articles where you have a COI? Including your insertion of photo(s) of yourself into Wikipedia articles?
