You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Joseph Smith, Jr.. Users who edit disruptively or refuse to collaborate with others may be blocked if they continue. In particular the three-revert rule states that making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period is almost always grounds for an immediate block. If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the talk page to discuss controversial changes. Work towards wording and content that gains consensus among editors. If unsuccessful, then do not edit war even if you believe you are right. Post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If edit warring continues, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. It's odd that there is such an increase in activity from Creighton University lately; are you aware that sockpuppetry is not allowed at WP? Duke53 | Talk 17:44, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

This is your last warning; the next time you remove or blank page content or templates from Wikipedia, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. A Sniper (talk) 20:22, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Changes at Joseph Smith[edit]

Mr. Foxe,

I reverted the last changes you made to Joseph Smith without first initiating a disscussion with you because you showed others the same courtesy. Please talk this out with me, and lets see how we can make this article better.

I agree with the edit that had been made earlier, which replaced plural marriage with marriage as a requisite for exaltation according to Smith. Smith practiced polygamy, but it was rather controlled within the church, only the minority of men practicing it. Smith taught several times that those practicing polygamy under the consent of his revelation were blameless and would be saved, but it is a gross misrepresentation to say that he taught it a requirement for such. That would make the majority of his following damned, as they did not participate.

The majority of his followers were sealed under his supposed sealing power, and were acting for their own salvation. See section 132 of the doctrine and covenants or the section of marriage in the fabulous work joseph smith: rough rolling stone.

Please discuss this with me and lets decide on a way to make the article better. If the one version is not preferable to you, that is fine. However, your version cannot stand. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Creightonian (talkcontribs) 17:47, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

If you have a legitimate reason for removing cited references, please discuss them first on the article talk page.--John Foxe (talk) 17:59, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
