Three revert rule[edit]

You have done three reverts at Hamza Tzortzis. Suggest that you use the talk page and leave it to someone else to revert for the next 24 hours.-- Toddy1 (talk) 08:25, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Thanks friend Toddy1. I hope you are fine. I would politely like to point out that I have not performed MORE than three reverts, as per the WP:3RR guideline: "An editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page—whether involving the same or different material—within a 24-hour period" I was not planning to edit again in the same window of time. But thanks for the kindness of your reminder. I am grateful. I appreciate you. Best regards, George Custer's Sabre (talk) 08:43, 13 February 2018 (UTC)


There is a discussion at Talk:Ron Karenga related to your decision to change the page title. Prof. Karenga doesn't use "Maulana" as an Islamic honor. He uses it as his name. Please review the discussion and comment whether you believe the article should still be at "Ron Karenga" and if so, why. (talk) 04:06, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

The discussion remains open for comments. Please review the discussion and comment, since it was your choice to move the article before. (talk) 20:43, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

Tariq Ramadan[edit]

I'm not buying your "not RS" excuse. Care to elaborate? Al-Andalusi (talk) 07:27, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

Dear Al-Andalusi, khallas. You've fixed it now. That's great. Best regards, George Custer's Sabre (talk) 07:28, 25 February 2018 (UTC)
Ok. But I think the article is reliable since it is written by an academic:
"Dr Alain Gabon is an associate professor of French studies based in the United States and the head of the French Department at Wesleyan University. He has written numerous papers and articles on contemporary France and on Islam in Europe and throughout the world for academic journals and think tanks, including Britain's Cordoba Foundation and mainstream media outlets, such as Saphirnews and Les cahiers de l'Islam. His essay entitled ‘Radicalisation islamiste et menace djihadiste en Occident: le double mythe’ appeared in a September 2016 Cordoba Foundation publication."

Mansoor Ijaz Article edits[edit]

Dear George Custer's Sabre (Gorge),

Thank you for taking time to trim the lede for the Mansoor Ijaz article. I wonder if I could suggest a further edit that streamlines the initial paragraph in terms of language flow (as it is currently, it has become a bit choppy to read). I also feel the political stuff should all sit together in one paragraph, so I propose moving the last sentence of Para 1 to first sentence of Para 2 -- it seems to flow better. I have set forth the suggested amendments below.

One other small favor on a copy/edit note -- there is an extra line space after the PERSONAL section that needs to be removed -- you see it in the article clearly, but perhaps not in the edit space. I would do it, but I don't want to be overtly involved in any edits on the article. Just a cleanup request.

Thank you, Mansoor Ijaz (talk) 16:10, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Notification also given to Nyttend

Mansoor Ijaz (born August 1961) is a Pakistani-American venture financier and hedge-fund manager. He is founder and chairman of Crescent Investment Management Ltd, a New York and London-based investment firm that operates CARAT, a proprietary trading system developed by Ijaz in the late 1980s to manage global investment portfolios. Ijaz created the venture investment arm of Crescent in the early 2000's. In 2013, it unsuccessfully tried to acquire a stake in Lotus F1, a Formula One team.
In the 1990s, Ijaz and his companies were contributors to Democratic Party institutions as well as the presidential candidacies of Bill Clinton. During the first Clinton term, when the U.S. had severed official ties with Sudan, Ijaz opened informal communications links between Washington and Khartoum in an effort to gain access to Sudanese intelligence data on Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda, who were then operating from Sudan. Ijaz was involved in efforts to broker a ceasefire in Kashmir in 2000–2001, and in the Memogate controversy, in which former Pakistani envoy Husain Haqqani allegedly used him to deliver a memorandum to senior U.S. officials in order to thwart an attempted coup by the Pakistani military after bin Laden was killed.
Dear friend Mansoor Ijaz, I hope you are well. With no disrespect intended, it is interesting that you write to me: "I don't want to be overtly involved in any edits on the article". You ARE editing, only through others; like proxy editing. Perhaps you might now elect to step back a bit? Editors tend not to like to be told how to edit. We see it as a creative activity. Best regards, and thanks for your thoughts, George Custer's Sabre (talk) 07:40, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

I added a ref to Bano Qudsia, you may improve it if required. Thanks.—TripWire________ʞlɐʇ 10:36, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

Hello dear friend TripWire, I hope you’re well. Yes I saw that. It’s great. Many thanks. Best regards, George Custer's Sabre (talk) 10:46, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

Recent revert[edit]

Hello George Custer's Sabre, regarding the recent revert which you've done in the article G. P. Rajarathnam, mentioning it as 'all unreferenced'. I like to bring to your concern that I had provided a valid citation for the related personal life section's content. Can you please check citation 12 in this previous version of the article and reply back?
previous version of article:G. P. Rajarathnam    |  Ganeshprasadkp (talk) 15:12, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

Dear friend Ganeshprasadkp, I hope you are well. For the material removed under my “unreferenced” edit summary, there was no citation at all. I have now double-checked that. The subsequent rm of information occurred because in effect it was just a statement that he liked to eat a lot. That’s not significant enough to qualify as encyclopaedic. Best regards, George Custer's Sabre (talk) 15:35, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
Thank you George Custer's Sabre, for the quick reply. I agree with the food content which is non-encyclopedic. To retain the other removed content, can I use citation 12, which you can check here: Info on GP Rajaratnam's personal life  |  Ganeshprasadkp (talk) 15:44, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
Dear Ganeshprasadkp, hello again. I read this article and it contains nothing that is not already said in the article aside from a few anecdotes and a lot of trivia, none of which is, in my view, suitable for an encyclopaedia article. Are there not any better articles on the internet containing substantial and meaningful things about this interesting person? Best regards, George Custer's Sabre (talk) 15:58, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
Yes George Custer's Sabre, I too agree. Thanks once again for the quick valuable reply. Ganeshprasadkp (talk) 16:06, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

Your vote will be helpful[edit]

Dear friend Ganeshprasadkp, I hope you are well. Yes sure I'll support the page's retention. Best regards, George Custer's Sabre (talk) 16:23, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
Dear George Custer's Sabre, Thanks a ton. Your companionship is appreciable. Ganeshprasadkp (talk) 16:32, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

Khaled Ahmed[edit]

Hi. Please read the article again - inline reference #1 has the link to his profile on Cricinfo, and his DOB. Thanks. Lugnuts Fire Walk with Me 12:16, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi Lugnuts, I hope you’re fine. I opened the link and can’t see a DOB. It’s empty. Maybe it’s a browser issue. I won’t revert again. Best wishes, George Custer's Sabre 12:22, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
