Hey, I noticed that you’ve been editing that article, you undid the last four edits I made to it (1 2 3 4). All of those edits were innocuous, and none of them should have been undone…for example, one edit removed the template needed for the references to show up, another removed two categories that the article belonged in, a third removed a citation needed template without citing the information (although, to be fair, the information was eventually removed), and a forth removed a link and added irrelevant information. I know you’re new around here and might not be familiar with our editing practices, but why did you undo them? pbp 13:28, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

It was certainly a mistake and I apologize. I have been trying to clean up articles for southern california office holders and apparently an editor by the name of SoCalPolitik (sp?) has been vandalizing some of the pages. I was attempting to clean up his vandalism and as you noted, I am new to this and made a mistake. Thank you for all of your help.
No problem. Why don't you explain on the article's talk page or on Socalpolitik's talk page why you disapprove of his removal of content? I'd also urge you to read some of the information on WP:BLP; in general, we have to be extra careful about what we say about people who are still living pbp 04:36, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

The statement that Chow made here is absurd. This person clearly doesn't know that you can look up a user's past contributions. Purpleback probably did and found out that I have not re-edited any other pages or "vandalized" them. Chow's accusation is blatantly false and dishonest. --Socalpolitik (talk) 20:41, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

Edit war/content dispute[edit]

You and User:Socalpolitik appear to be engaged in a slow-moving edit war/content dispute over this article. Could the two of you try to work it out on the article's talk page? pbp 13:23, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

There's an RFC about it, in which he's already commented, and both he and I would like to hear your side of the story pbp 20:08, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
