Salam alaikum Gorge, you seem to have had your hands full lately with a lot of maurading POV pushers and tendentious editors! Sorry to bother you, but that's part of the reason: you have a lot of experience with this stuff. And unfortunately, it's related to Salafi movement again.
An IP address with a historu of combative editing recently played around with the Salafiyyah redirect page. At first, they tried to redirect the "salafiyyah" - the Arabic word for Salafism, the 150 or however many years old movement - to Athari, a much, much older school of theology. I reverted back and they gave up after seeming to understand the difference, but then removed the redirect, copy pasted three sections directly from Salafi movement and then added some comments from a single Egyptian scholar giving his take on Salafism...yet the IP address claims that Salafiyyah (Salafism) is different from Salafi movement (al Harakah as Salafiyyah in Arabic). It makes no sense to me at all and in fact, the Salafi movement article on Arabic Wikipedia is even called salafiyyah, but this person simply reverts and adds 14,000 bytes of text at a time.
Would you be willing to take a look and add your two cents? MezzoMezzo (talk) 04:01, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
- Waalaykum salam, MezzoMezzo. I hope you are well. Yes, I'll be very glad to take a look. Regards, George Custer's Sabre (talk) 04:19, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
The reason I reverted your pending edit to the Mike Tyson page was that you didn't tie the book into the article: I don't think the book is significant enough to stand alone as a "further reading" section, and adding the website of the book looks promotional. Rather use it to support an assertion in the article. Here's a citation template that you can use: Wilson, Eric; Holloway, Rory (2014). Taming the Beast The Untold Story of Team Tyson.

- Dear Slashme, thank you very much. You are kind. Regards, George Custer's Sabre 08:44, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
