Copy-edit in Babylon (program)?

Hello, Marokwitz

Please be more careful when copy-editing; your copy-editing of a section in Babylon (program) was ... well, I don't mean to offend, I hope you understand, but it was horrible. First, the verb to designate takes place at one instance not over a period of time. Second, the adverb temporarily is used to make sure that the reader knows that the action was meant to be temporary from the beginning. (e.g. "We have no choice but to temporarily close the shop" means we intend to open the shop as soon as possible.) Third, you used of of the verb to advise to mean "inform about a fact or situation" belongs to a different English variety not used in that article.

Last but not least, you mislaid a very important source that proved that Microsoft later unlisted the program at the given date.

Ahava and WP:SYNTH

I'm sorry, but I reverted your recent edit. The referenced B'Tselem document mentions Ahava in the context of exploitation etc. The rest of the paragraph is synthesis indeed. --ElComandanteChe (talk) 11:37, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

ElComandanteChe, you are right about the B'tselem source. My mistake. But the two other references are definitely SYNTH. Since I don't want to violate 1RR, can you remove them? Marokwitz (talk) 11:40, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
Sure, but I have no idea how to put it right :( Let's take it to the talk page, since other editors has been recently trying to word this paragraph in a proper manner --ElComandanteChe (talk) 12:16, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
I did my best. Please review. --ElComandanteChe (talk) 12:19, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

shebaa farms reversion

I have undone your reversion of my shebaa farms edit. This is so that the edit history clearly shows my rebuttal of your false accusation that I have deleted sources.

Please feel free to revert my version, but provide an honest edit summary.

RFD

Hello -- at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2011 July 22#Pro-Palestinian consensus was reached to retarget the "Pro-Palestinian" redirect from "Israeli-Palestinian conflict" to "Palestinian cause". On 14 August 2011 Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Palestinian cause was closed as "Redirect to Israeli-Palestinian conflict", inadvertently reversing the consensus reached at the RfD regarding the "Pro-Palestinian" redirect (the redirect was not mentioned during the discussion). In subsequent discussion at Talk:Pro-Palestinian#Extract from RFD discussion for future reference it has been suggested that both redirects ("Pro-Palestinian" and "Palestinian cause") would be better targeted at Palestinian nationalism. It was also agreed to initiate a widely-advertised RfD, with notifications to relevant WikiProjects and participants in the AfD and RfD. Accordingly, your comments are invited at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2011 August 26#Pro-Palestinian. Best, —Ireilly talk —Preceding undated comment added 09:02, 26 August 2011 (UTC).
