During the week, the Committee "voted for good cause to suspend further proceedings in the case until April 7, 2011 or as otherwise announced." Accordingly, all activity in the case (including evidence submissions, as well as workshop proposals and proposed decisions) has been suspended until further notice.
This case, following on from the 2006 case concerning Kehrli (talk·contribs), concerns allegations of disruptive editing to the Kendrick (unit) and Kendrick mass articles. Evidence was submitted on-wiki by four editors. Drafter David Fuchs submitted several proposed principles in the workshop before submitting a proposed decision for arbitrators to vote on. The case came to a close during the week after a total of 13 arbitrators voted on the proposed decision.
What is the effect of the decision and what does it tell us?
Kehrli is indefinitely topic banned from the metrology topic.
Articles may not contain any original synthesis - a combination or analysis of published material that serves to advance a position not clearly stated by the sources. Editors should ensure that the reporting of different views on a subject adequately reflects the relative levels of support for those views, without giving undue weight to a particular view; Wikipedia is not a venue for advocating or advancing a viewpoint or position.
Articles containing units of scientific measurement should generally use the units and notations that are used most often by contemporary reliable sources within the field. Exceptions may be made for valid reasons, such as in historical contexts, or in articles about the units of measurement.
