Please be calm[edit]

Hi Sarvagnya - please be calm and patient regarding the debate on Talk:Infrastructural Concerns in Bangalore. We respect you, and we are perfectly willing to address your views and objections, and I request that you remain civil to all, and not undertake to remove anything from the article before the dispute is resolved.

where have i been anything but calm and patient on that page?? and where/when have i removed anything on that page?
the page I just came from Bannerghatta_Road you were a complete jackass. I didn't care at all about the topic, and you could well be right about everything you said, but sheesh. I havent checked out the page Rama's Arrow mentioned but on this page at least you were anything but calm and patient, and completely disrespectful. All caps? Cmon, thats just not necessary.

Another way to user alternate spellings[edit]

Hi Sarvagnya, I have noticed that you have changed a number of spellings by using "pipes" like this:

[[oldname|newname]]

Another way to do this is to create a redirect page. That would be a page with the name newname, and its contents would be

#REDIRECT [[oldname]]

In some cases your method is best. In particular double redirects do not work. However, editors are likely to use more than one spelling, you can save them much trouble by creating a redirect page. For example Kaveri and Cauvery. --BostonMA 01:52, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

Wiki Ettiquette[edit]

Hi Sarvangnya, I notice that on Talk:Bannerghatta Road you have used CAPS extensively. Many people on Wikipedia, and elsewhere on the internet, consider CAPS to be shouting. Extensive use of CAPS and frequent use of cuss words tends to make exchanges unpleasant. Please try to make your arguments with greater tact and less venom. Also, when adding new comments to a talk page, please add them at the bottom, rather than the top. Sincerely, BostonMA 20:20, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

woah woah woah! should i say i didnt see this coming. Mr.BostonMA whoever you are, please henceforth, take a look at the real issue and concerns raised before you start harping on the tone. and if caps means shouting then so be it. i'd like to know which parliamentary decree of which country deemed using CAPS as shouting. cite your sources...huh! and that trivality apart, answer my questions
  • how can anyone consider www.bangalorepotholes.com and projectmonitor.com as notable?? you guys talk about rules and ethics at the drop of a hat, but you turn a blind eye when someone flouts the most basic of WP rules on citing sources. and none of you are new to WP for me to assume good faith and ignore the lapse.
  • how is the condition of a road in some corner of the world encyclopaedic?? and how on earth is an article on Bannerghatta road even worth being mentioned on WP. B'ghatta road is not a tourist attraction like Marine Drive or Rajpath of even M.G Road in Bangalore...it has no claim to fame to warrant a WP entry.
  • how can current affairs be worth a WP mention? it is for the newspapers and magazines to take care of. it is not for an encyclopaedia.
  • how can you keep talking about nothing but the road conditions and call it 'INFRASTRUCTURE'??
answer all these and many other concerns raised on those talk pages and then start harping on my 'lack of tact', venom etc.


and just for the record, i'd like to know where else except in my recent edit of the B'ghatta Road page i have been anything less than tactful and patient?? please let me know. ONE INSTANCE!! let me know of ONE INSTANCE other than this one where i have lost my patience. STOP LYING AND PLAYING TO THE GALLERY. LIKE I SAID, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!! Sarvagnya
Sarvangnya, please read WP:NPA. Accusing someone of lying may be considered a personal attack. Also, the behavior of editors is just as important an issue as the content of articles. --BostonMA 21:17, 24 March 2006 (UTC)
