discussion at WP:ANI[edit]

Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there currently is a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. --Enric Naval (talk) 05:14, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Link to exact section (it will stop working when it gets archived) Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Incidents#Need_an_uninvolved_admin_to_drop_a_warning. --Enric Naval (talk) 05:15, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Discretionary sanctions apply here[edit]

Can you take a look a Wikipedia:Requests_for_arbitration/Homeopathy#Remedies and ask yourself if you are editing in the spirit of the Arbs' judgment? Please be aware that on an article like this everyone's edits are carefully scrutinized. This is not a threat or a warning, just a friendly notice that special rules apply on this article, or more precisely the existing rules may be more stringently enforced. --John (talk) 05:24, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Well John this is a kind of threat or I could say harassment but I m not surprised. From the moment I started editing users from this talk page who disagree with me started following me around and revert my edits.

The user who obviously wants to mute me - I have read all about banning ( few moments ago I was behaving well according to him - dont know what changed) started what called here canvassing by using and essentially changing my question without even asking me by conducting a little survey in the talk page. That was totally inappropriate and disruptive as it was noted by another user.

And you, before examining the situation you start dropping these notes to me? Did you make a comment or drop a note about the previous issue to the user's page about this? Of course not. --George1918 (talk) 18:22, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

He dropped this note here because of the request that I made at ANI (the "incidents" administrator noticeboard, where editors can ask for help from admins, request specific admin actions, or simply get an admin to look at something) see his reply to my note[1].
I don't know who is "[t]he user who obviously wants to mute me", but he had nothing to do with this note. I made the request because I was reading Talk:Homeopathy and I saw one editor (you) raising the same issue several times in a way that was (in my personal opinion) disrupting the collaboration among editors in the talk page.
(finally, please make sure you add the relevant amount of semi-colons ":" in front of every paragraph of your comment, not just in front of the first paragraph. The wikimedia text parser is dumb and it doesn't know where individual comments start or end; it just treats each paragraph as an individual entity. You have to make sure yourself that all your paragraphs have the same indentation depth. One semi-colon for each indentation level: note how my own comment here has two semi-colons in front of each paragraph because I am replying at the second indentation level. Note that unindented comments break the flow of the comments and it's difficult to see at first sight who you are replying to, and other editors might indent your comments while replying to you or to other people in the same discussion thread. Sorry for lengthy explanation, in reality it's very simple but it's difficult to explain.) --Enric Naval (talk) 20:23, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
Then the above comment concerns you as well. He also had to investigate before taking any action. Thanks for the advice about the technicalities I ignore.--George1918 (talk) 21:03, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

As you are now experiencing, there are very strong forces here to mute anyone who tries to provide potentially positive information on that "h" word, even if the information you quote from is "Science" magazine and from a Nobelist. Many people before you have been muted, including me. I wish you well, though I encourage you to be very careful, be polite as possible (you ARE doing that so far), and continue to work to provide improvements to this extremely biased article.
