I used nothing from other pages. Everything was a result of research conducted by me from various sources. If any came to be similar than it was merely coincidence.
I will reedite de page again in a different way and post it again. If it is deleted than I would say that there is something with the infromation I worte.
- Hi Sealove us,
- You wrote :
- What I edited over there is fruit of research into the japanese market and restaurants. I've talked to some sashimi restaurant owners.
- Thats not a citeable source and in fact, violates official wilipedia policy here :[]
- And for the accusations on the part of the activists I don't need to insert any source beacuse the pictures realeased to the media are available at any serach engine or news concerning the case. They are not claims anymore and already facts.
- This part : but such accusations were proved founded and true and the Japanese denials unreliable after photos of the incident were released to the media. Is the sticking block - as the accusations are not proved founded or true - provide cites to images of them tied to the radio mast, in freezing water up to their knees etc etc ... I have also seen images of the two activists on the ship - what I have´nt seen is any of the claims being verified.
- So are you going to replace the deleted edited part back?
- No, not unless verifiable sources are provided —Preceding unsigned comment added by SammytheSeal (talk • contribs) 17:08, 23 January 2008 (UTC)
Whaling in Japan
Thank you for your message where you said "I used nothing from other pages. Everything was a result of research conducted by me...".
Please read this  diff showing your insertion. In particular please note how the paragraph starts with the words "Japanese whalers and protesters in the icy Southern Ocean charged each other with 'terrorism and piracy' on Wednesday".
Please then read this  article from Reuters. In particular please note how the paragraph starts with the words "Japanese whalers and protesters in the icy Southern Ocean charged each other with 'terrorism and piracy' on Wednesday".
This is unlikely to be a coincidence, so it means that either (i) you wrote the information and Reuters copied it from you, or (ii) Reuters wrote the information and you copied it from Reuters. I'm suspecting the latter is a little bit more likely. That is why I reverted your insertion and posted the copyright violation warning above. Please read this page and note its contents.
