Ghouta chemical attacks and Volunteer Marek
Before addressing content issues about Ghouta chemical attack, I have to give a bit of history. I was reading the lead to Annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation and saw a statement I thought deserved a Citation Needed tag. diff @Volunteer Marek: believed that the intro section didn't need citations if the same statement was later sourced in the text. I showed him that was wrong User_talk:Volunteer_Marek#Lead_section_citations and he thankfully added citations that improved the article. Great.
However, immediately after this episode, Volunteer Marek decided he needed to patrol the Ghouta chemical attack article, which I have recently made lots of edits to and that he'd never edited before. He then accused another editor of edit warring (Talk:Ghouta_chemical_attack#Edit_warring_on_a_1RR_restricted_article), which was not upheld (Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Enforcement#Erlbaeko), and things went downhill from there (Talk:Ghouta_chemical_attack#False_flag_motivation_-_actual_content_of_edit_war).
