Removing other editor's comments[edit]

Hi. Please refrain from editing other users comments on deletion discussion pages. You may think them "did not effect the actual discussion", but your comment there didn't affect it either, and nobody removed it.

Take some time to see how things here work. Have a nice Wikipedia time. --Damiens.rf 13:23, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

I didn't delete your posts but you deleted mine, then you have the gall to call me out for deleting yours --Brendan White (talk) 13:25, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
If we take the DOD page with its discussion page then I only did three reverts and one move, if we take it on its own then I did violate the 3rr and you did delete my comment by reverting to a page before it was put up. --Brendan White (talk) 15:32, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

You're about to violate the WP:3RR there. Please stop. --Damiens.rf 13:38, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

You take on a tone of authority here, but you are the one trolling and being a general rude individual. if you stop and do a little math you will notice that if you started an edit war you will have to revert three times before I do. Which you have already done (although on the last time you removed the tags that say what you did, another thing in bad taste), why not put some relevant discussion in. Hell you could have made a case for why that belongs in the mains page, as is you just reverted, unlike me. --Brendan White (talk) 13:51, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours in accordance with Wikipedia's blocking policy for violating the three-revert rule.

Request reason:

The first "Reversion" was me moving the discussion to the appropriate discussion page. If you look at the discussion page as being tied to the main page I did not revert but rather rearranged. I requested that the issue be discussed and attempted to resolve the issue. Other parties have stepped in and commented that the discussion in question was inappropriate [1] and I don't think my offwiki discussions are in any way relevant as to my knowledge offwiki conduct is not dictated by the wikipedia terms of use. I did screw up in adding a delete tag to the delete request, I honestly didn't know how the system worked and no one told me until after my third revert where I was blocked. Thankyou

Decline reason:

I too would take the line that the first removal of material was a manual revert of additions to the page, so counts as part of the sequence. Regardless of any argument you might make with regards to the counting, WP:3RR does not entitle you to three reverts per day, particularly not when removing another user's good faith comments. A more pragmatic course of action would have been to ask Damian.rf on his talkpage whether he would consider moving the material to the talkpage, and discussing it rationally. This you did not do, and everything you did constituted edit-warring over the removal of content from the page. Please read WP:GAB before requesting further unblocks — Fritzpoll (talk) 15:43, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Note to reviewing administrators, the 3RR case can be found here. I perceived the first reversion as a revert because it is the undoing of other people's revisions (i.e. removing the posts from the page). either way (talk) 15:27, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
