Counterproductive Edits on Margret_Sanger[edit]

Banner, I know you mean well but try to avoid bias. Everyone wins as long as we avoid BOTH defending Racism And comparing people to Hitlar. Try to find a middle ground and keep it clean. :) Chrononem  22:13, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

Read the source given. The Banner talk 22:23, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
The source itself is an example of Goodwin's Law it says Hitler learned from Sanger. Maybe I was too hard on 24.216.168.184. Please revert your edits and you could probably read the source yourself. There is no reference to widespread racism. to quote the article: "Eugenics and abortion is about the tyranny of the elite deciding who shall live and who shall die." It seems to refer to Sanger's views as held by very specific people. Chrononem  22:32, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
Mate, the believe in Eugenics was wide spread in the 1920s. Only later, due to Hitler, it was discredited. But before that, it WAS wide spread in the USA. The Banner talk 22:37, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
Belief in eugenic theory, perhaps, not in eugenic cleansing of particular races; at least not according to the listed source. Regardless, your personal reverts exceed those allowed within a twenty four hour period on a sanctioned page, you need to reverse your latest edit and allow another community member to correct the issue if a correction is really needed. Chrononem  01:56, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
First of all it is up to you to prove that the ideas behind eugenics were not wide spread in the 1920s. When you can prove that, we have something to talk. By now you use Hitler as an excuse to whitewash the article. The Banner talk 09:37, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
No, it's up to the source to prove anything. We aren't having a debate, you are missusing your editing rights. Please revert your edits to match wikipedia policy. I really don't want to escalate. Just a few poor words can undo a lot of good contributions.Chrononem  12:31, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
FYI The Goodwin's law quip was a joke. I was just speculating that 24.216.168.184. might have actually read the source and could have been referencing it in his summary. Unlikely maybe, but a weird coincidence none the less. Regaurdless, I'll be reverting the article myself in a few hours if you don't. It could stand to use more neutral language throughout. Chrononem  13:45, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
Your bluff is funny but I am not buying it. The Banner talk 21:23, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
"Bluff" is different than "quip". Chalk one up to the language barrier. Chrononem  22:02, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

Calling your recent reversion "vandalism" was unduely harsh, I apologize.

Please consider the language involved in using "Controversies" verses "Attacks". While the former is considered benign, enough to be used as a standard wikipedia header, the latter carries an accusatory tone and assigns blame to the opposite group rather than allowing their grievances to stand on thier own. If we want Wikipedia not to seem like it carries an agenda we have to leave moralization to the readers. Chrononem  21:05, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

LOL, that was the only part of your edit that was slightly acceptable, the rest of your edit was absolutely not neutral and based on a source not given in that section. The Banner talk 21:34, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
Don't you see how this:
"Due to her connection with Planned Parenthood, many who are opposed to abortion frequently condemn Sanger by criticizing her views on racial supremacy, birth control, and eugenics."
Is both less ambiguous and more accurate than this:
"Many who are opposed to the legalization of abortion frequently condemn Sanger by questioning her fitness as a mother and criticizing her views on race, abortion, and eugenics."
Without sacrificing objectivity?
If you need a breakdown:
  • I don't know how to source a subtraction but according to sources listed on that page Sanger was not in favor of abortion. Those who condemn her are targeting her because of her connection with Planned Parenthood, not her views on abortion.
  • "Questioning her fitness as a mother" is not included in the sources and is purely dig against those doing the questioning.
  • "Views on Race" is ambiguous and is likely to be seen as referring to a non-bigoted view in the current political climate as her opponents are often presented as bigots themselves.
Chrononem  22:15, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
Nope, dude, you are just pushing your own views while making the article less neutral. And you are clearly willing to edit war to get it your way. The Banner talk 09:22, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
I'd remind you that you are the only one in violation of the Sanctioned page's 1RR. If I was willing to start an edit war I would not have asked you to correct your own violation, I would have immediately reverted it. Chrononem  12:46, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

The Banner, would you check this out and tell me what you think? Scare quotes

Sorry, no clue how I can help. The Banner talk 21:43, 27 July 2015 (UTC) By the way, who did this request?
Just looking for your opinion on it. Thanks anyway. Chrononem  11:37, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Vandalism.[edit]

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, you may be blocked from editing. The admin said that he is a history professor in Stockholm University. I just reported you to him. And in Finnish and other wikies, also in English. The USSR is clearly considered as the country who played the greatest role in WW2. Jomlini (talk) 23:18, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

And who is that admin? Is he an admin on ENWP? The Banner talk 00:47, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

RMS52[edit]

Hi, The Banner. Just came to say that I am sorry if I behaved unfriendly to you. I was quite fustrated with your edits at the time! Has there been a desision about if we need a seperate article for the Airlines and Destanations chart of airport articles? RMS52 (talk) 06:46, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

Why should I trust you after your sockpuppetry? The Banner talk 08:35, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

Because I apoligized and realized that I had done something wrong. After the sockpuppet thing was reavealed. But now I am here apoligize and behave in a acceptable manner. RMS52 (talk) 17:17, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

Editing a disambiguation page[edit]

In this edit you omitted to say what you propose to do about the pages that currently link to that page, nor what your position is in the ongoing discussion of this. And you leave yourself open to the suspicion that you thought that the link from this page was to a WikiProject. Obviously it was not linking to a WikiProject. Michael Hardy (talk) 17:06, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

It links to Wikipedia:WikiProject Mathematics/List of mathematics articles. In my opinion, that is linking to a wikiproject. So I was bold enough to revert your edit. The Banner talk 19:55, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

In that case, why are you not dealing with the question of editing the links to that page that should not link to the page to which you redirected it? 2601:445:4001:4514:FC41:8FAD:5B28:6B6F (talk) 20:07, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

My only concern was to free Template:Index of logic articles from a link to a disambiguation page. And that was exactly what I have done. Who screwed up and how to solve that is not my concern. The Banner talk 20:16, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
