alleged 1RR Violation at Freedom Flotilla III[edit]

Perhaps you are unaware , but all article related to the Palestinian - Israeli conflict are subjetc to a 1RR limitaion - you may not make more than 1 revert on any article in this topic area in 24 hours. You broke that restriction today with this sequence of edits:

Note that reverts do not have to be of the same material, as in this case.

Please undo you latest revert, or you may find yourself reported for this violation and possibly blocked form editing due to edit warring. All Rows4 (talk) 20:57, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

DavidHeap (talk) 04:27, 5 July 2015 (UTC) Perhaps All Rows4 you are unaware of the definition of reverting : my edit at 01:26, 4 July 2015, does not "restore to a previous version" of this page, because no previous version ever said "began releasing". It is a new edit, and in line with the undisputed facts (some of the Marianne crew are still in prison as of July 5, 2015). Accurate typing would also be helpful, even when making gratuitous accusations (the page never said "realesed" [sic])

per WP:EW, which is policy, "A revert means undoing the actions of other editors." another editor put in "released", and the page said "released" until you undid that, and put in "began releasing". If you'd rather try to be witty and complain about typos, and desire to escalate this, rather that simply undo your last edit, no problem. I have a pretty good track record with these things ( All Rows4 (talk) 07:07, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

"A revert means undoing the actions of other editors.": quite so All Rows4. Thus if someone had earlier changed "began releasing" to "released", then my edit to "began releasing" would have undone their edit. But since no such prior edit ever happened, there was nothing for me to "undo", and no "reverting" occurred: I simply edited (for the first time...) "released" (which was demonstrably inaccurate, BTW, on the date in question) to the more accurate "began releasing", which is simply an edit, not a "revert" by any reasonable definition (e.g "restore to a previous version" or "undo"). You seem to be using your own pseudo-definition (whereby any change = revert), which would make all non-initial changes "reverts", because they (necessarily) change something that is already there. This would mean exactly one edit per day per editor: clearly not the intention of 1RR. Your grasp of English semantics seems on par with your spelling.

Any change which is not pure addition of text is indeed a revert, and if you are interested, I'll be happy to pull up administrator's comments from the Edit Warring noticeboard that say as much. Seeing as your edit was already reverted and you have wisely decided not to edit war it back in, I am not going to continue this discussion - consider it a warning, and next time I'm going straight to a report.
