Hi. Scottyhinesis is trying to hide well-sourced, well-attributed and well-documented criticism about the leftist US magazine, without proper consensus on talk page (nobody agreed with that removal). For some reason he didn't explain, Malik Shabazz deleted the content again, even though he didn't participate in the discussion. BTW, Scottyhines is a single-purpose account that has only edited in that specific article, perhaps with the intention to whitewash the anti-Israel publication from its numerous accusations of antisemitism.-- (talk) 03:39, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

British Israelism[edit]

Thanks. This is such an important issue I'm wondering if I should go to TalkRS to discuss it. These BI articles were always a problem due to AngloPyramidologist and his socks, who was a white supremacist I think, and now with these two new SPAs. Doug Weller talk 20:14, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

Do you mean RSN? That would be a good idea, because RSN has a wider following than NORN. I notice that the "Scots are of Scythian Ancestry" has no valid sources. While sources by adherents may be used in articles about adherents, they cannot be used in articles about belief systems. TFD (talk) 20:42, 23 April 2017 (UTC)
No, I was thinking of trying to clarify the issue of whether sources need to discuss the topic. I've had the same problem at Talk:Bene Israel as at Talk:British Israelism (which is a bit of a nightmare now with editors not understanding Wikpedia, thinking BI is a majority view in terms of NPOV, not seeing problems with self-published stuff, etc).

You could do that. TFD (talk) 21:04, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

Formal mediation has been requested[edit]

The Mediation Committee has received a request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to "Talk:Nigel Farage".

RSN and NPOVN threads[edit]

TFD, please look at WP:FORUMSHOP. In two instances you are taking the talk page discussions to the Notice Boards while the basic discussion is underway. In the case of the NPOVN we had just started the discussion. Thanks. – S. Rich (talk) 00:14, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

Please avoid personal attacks. These are actually two different issues, what weight to give criticism of the SPLC by a controversial blogger and whether we should accept a description of an advertisement which is clearly false. I am surprised by the way on your position on this. You know that weight requires when explaining opinions we should mention their degree of support. Your edit on the FRC falsely presents the opinions of the blogger as mainstream. Furthermore, it is disingenuous to ignore what an ad actually says. I am sure that you would not have accepted that type of evidence in your courtroom. TFD (talk) 00:50, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
