Bias?[edit]

WP:LIBEL is written in black and white. I've said what I've had to say on the matter. ANI next forum, if warranted. —MelbourneStartalk 10:03, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

I see you took away my request from Hillary Clinton's talk page. "we don't rely upon extreme right-wing media outlets, like Info Wars, for references." That's like me saying that your authority is moot because your from Australia's extreme left-wing capital. Facts are facts and should be addressed. If it's true it's true and people need to know, so don't censor critical information. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.148.62.128 (talk) 07:22, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

@124.148.62.128: If you continue to make defamatory allegations against a living person on Wikipedia, I'll report you, and you may lose your editing privileges. Best, —MelbourneStartalk 07:50, 10 August 2016 (UTC)
But it's not defamatory? It's not saying "lol hahaha hillary is unwell dont vote for her", it's saying that she has health problems. That's a fact and it's not slanderous, it's perfectly neutral, and for the sake of neutrality it shouldn't be censored. Wikipedia has a whole damned article about the Monica Lewinsky scandal, but that's not slandering Bill Clinton, those are simple facts, AND Bill Clinton is a living person. So what's different here? I feel like you're using your bias to shut down objectivity.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.148.62.128 (talkcontribs)
@124.148.62.128: That's the problem: you don't know that she has problems, in fact, Clinton herself has stated that she does not have serious health problems. You stating she does as a fact, is a problem, per WP:Libel. My alleged "bias" which is unproven (like your afforementioned allegations against this living person) is what's telling you to stop, before I take this to a relevant thread to discuss your conduct.
Irrespective of whether your allegations were made against Trump, Clinton, the Pope or the Queen — I could not care less. You do not make such claims, especially based on sources that are not considered reliable. I have nothing further to say on this matter. —MelbourneStartalk 10:03, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

@Marchjuly: I've removed your tag, as I've nullified the problem by moving said image to the Grollo Tower article — said article describes the work, and is hence permissible. Best, —MelbourneStartalk 07:41, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
