You seem very familiar with wikipedia. Have you previously edited under a different account? Thanks, Verbal chat 11:04, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

I am a relatively new contributor, although I created an account many years ago which was used for a handful of very minor edits with no other user interaction.

Your recent edits[edit]

Information.svg Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You may also click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you. --SineBot (talk) 14:06, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Aspartame. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period. Additionally, users who perform several reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. When in dispute with another editor you should first try to discuss controversial changes to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. Should that prove unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. Please stop the disruption, otherwise you may be blocked from editing. Verbal chat 14:48, 24 November 2009 (UTC)


You attempted to delete the reference discussed here, would you care to weigh in on its inclusion? (This is going to other users similarly involved as well). --King Öomie 21:15, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

Sorry about that, my bad. Dbrodbeck (talk) 22:22, 24 November 2009 (UTC)


Take a deep breath, go for a walk, come back and read Hans Adler and 2/0 comments carefully. Don't take the WP:BAIT. Unomi (talk) 22:52, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Why thank you Unomi, WP:BAIT perfectly describes the actions of that group of editors. I will do as you suggest. -- Fxsstm (talk) 04:36, 4 December 2009 (UTC)
Some practical things, essentially avoid calling a spade a spade. That is, don't refer to posts as baiting(as I have) unless you have a good evidence(multiple diffs) that shows it as something which can only be interpreted as such. While I may believe that the latter posts were baiting, I also acknowledge that at this point they would have in their possession diffs which paint a picture of you as being a tendentious editor(insistence on controversial), SPA (you have only edited a small number of articles, mostly within the same sphere) etc. and that, as frustrating as it may be, article talk pages are not the place for posting explanations of personal motivation or general perceptions of the editing environment. I would suggest that you start afresh, apologize for edit warring, try to work under a self-imposed 1rr, seek the advice of Hans or 2/0 and if you see evidence of improper behavior on the part of other editors such as personal attacks etc. collect the diff, ignore it in your response or at least couch your perception of it in neutral language devoid of reciprocation.
