Please do be nice.

Please read before posting[edit]

  • Post all new sections under a new header at the bottom of this page, not at random. If you make it clear you ignored these instructions by placing it elsewhere, I am likely to ignore your request in turn.


  • If you leave me a message here, I will respond to it here, as fragmented discussions are confusing. I may or may not leave you a notice that I've responded on your talk page. If you specifically request that I do (or do not) give you such a notice when I respond, I'll honor that request. If I contact you on your talk page, I will watchlist it so that I can respond there. If you'd like to leave me a notice when you respond, it would be appreciated, and you'll probably receive a faster followup.
  • If you are an admin here to ask me about someone I blocked for vandalism or spamming/advertising, they've agreed to stop it, and you believe they intend to edit productively, go ahead and unblock them. If you still want my opinion please feel free to ask, but there's no obligation. For more complex cases I would appreciate a heads-up, but please go ahead with your best judgment if I don't seem to be online. I would appreciate it if you'd let me know after you do.
  • If you email me a question or request, and do not indicate why the matter is sensitive and must be handled privately (and such is not immediately obvious), I may ignore it or respond on your talk page rather than by return email. Talk pages are open to other editors to read, and so are the preferred method of communication for matters involving Wikipedia. If the matter you are speaking to me about is Wikipedia-related and would not violate anyone's privacy by being posted publicly, please use my talk page instead of email. This does not, of course, apply to editors who are blocked from editing, though I still may respond on your talk page rather than by return email. Also, if you are contacting me for a matter related to the Arbitration Committee, please specifically indicate this in your email. All correspondence of this nature will be treated as confidential, though I am likely to forward it to the Committee as a whole, or any appropriate subcommittee, for consideration.
  • If you are here to ask a question regarding deletion of any kind, please read this before asking, and ask only if you need further clarification or still disagree after reading. If you ask a question answered there, I'll just refer you to it anyway.
  • While I will generally leave any personal attacks or uncivil comments you may make about me here, that does not mean that I find them acceptable, nor that I will not seek action against attacks that are severe or persistent.
  • I reserve the right to remove, revert, or immediately archive any material on this page, but will do so only in extreme circumstances, generally that of personal attacks or outing attempts against others. I will only revision delete material on this page in accordance with the revision deletion policy, and will clearly denote the reason why.

Arbitration Enforced Sanction Against Soham321[edit]

@Seraphimblade: Hello, sorry to bother you but I would like to respectfully ask you to reconsider your decision regarding Soham321. I have to ask you, are you aware of the situation over on the British Raj and Caste System of India articles? The guy has the patience of a saint dealing with what can only be termed as two or three dogmatic, ideologically-led editors. I always assume AGF but the reaction I received when first trying to improve the article was astonishing. Essentially three editors seem to believe they 'own' the articles and proceed to use any and all means to prevent the pages from being the independent, neutral and balanced articles they should be, articles that should be open to review yet are not due to their dated, ideologically-orientated stance. I have never come across such viciousness on Wikipedia and would personally warn them all to back off deleting other editors good faith edits, so I ask you to review what you know about the issue and take a second look, best wishes.

Please make any comments you may have regarding the request at the request rather than on my talk page. Seraphimblade Talk to me 12:14, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
Understood, apologies, I wanted to ensure that editors clearly understood what has been going on over at these articles. Would you like me to delete this section? regards. Twobellst@lk 14:50, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
No, it will be bot archived as normal. Seraphimblade Talk to me 14:55, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
