My [[User:JamesR/AdminStats|Adminstats] show that in 12 years time, I made some 28000 admin actions (which excludes things like editing through protection, necessary for main page maintenance), the vast majority of them deletions. 
+ ::'''A:''' Yes, there have been a number of conflicts. In February-March 2018, I got too confrontational, leading to legitimate complaints; I realized that I had unnecessarily antagonised people, and took care to take a more neutral, less personal approach in my adminning thereafter. I have also, as I explained in discussions during the ArbCom case, tried to take care not to be sole admin involved with prolonged or complicated cases, but to bring issues to admin noticeboards for further comments (see for example [[Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Archive299#Bach editing]] from June 2018), or to make sure that others have tried to solve problems or to warn editors about some issues as well. The "job" I do in new page patrolling or copyvio checking is a necessary one, and one that often leads to unhappy "customers", editors who feel they are trying to (or in the case of paid editors usually pretending to) help enwiki, and who don't understand why their edits aren't wlecomed no questions asked. But I'm not the only one doing this job by far, at enwiki we luckily have a large pool of editors trying to maintain some basic quality standards, and I have to let go of some problems sometimes and let others deal with it. 
+   
- ::'''A:''' Yes, but for this RfA let's stick to the current one. Summary: I was enwiki-banned for 1 year and desysoped by the WMF, apparently based on a lengthy secret file of which only some tiny details were made known to me (and none to the enwiki community). 
- 
- After a lot of complaints on enwiki about this WMF move, they finally transferred the handling of the situation over to ArbCom. The arbitrators eventually started a highly irregular case, and kept me banned until the case was all but wrapped (even though they agreed that the ban was invalid ("not required")). No public evidence was allowed (not even from people who wanted to associate their name to their evidence, as is standard and good), all evidence had to be sent secretly to the arbs, who would summarize it and keep the names hidden. It is not clear why they chose this path.
- 
- The result of this was a very, very limited set of evidence, where after community scrutiny the arbs found 4 pieces of relevant evidence from the past 18 (!) months, two of them showing incivility, and two admin actions:
- #my "Fuck Arbcom" comment
- #A slightly sarcastic reply to GiantSnowman, made on my own user talk page after they mistakenly accused me of following them around: we ended up resolving this as adults, acknowledging where and why the communication went South. See [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Fram/Archive_36#Festive_greetings here]
- #My block of GorillaWarfare for a personal attack, where consensus at ANI was quite clear that it was a bad block ("bad" as in shouldn't have been made, not "bad" as in nefarious abuse of the tools)
- #A 1 month block of MartinEvans for copyvio, which was seen as correct (reason) but way too long
- 
- When confronted with the feebleness of this, the arbs claimed that their votes for a desysop were based on vague "concerns" from some editors, and on the secret evidence they received from the WMF, all of it available onwiki, but not sent in as evidence by the community when invited to do so.
- 
- Which sets an extremely low bar for desysops, and makes it impossible to actually know what leads to desysop, and hence to avoid such actions or people in the future. 
- 
- And we shouldn't accept this. There are working mechanisms to deal with problematic admins. No failure of these mechanisms has been shown; what has been shown is that people have tried to use a different, secret mechanism to get a result without the annoying distraction of people actually checking that the complaints are valid and not distorted or unfounded.
- 
- If you think I'm unfit to remain an admin, please start a regular ArbCom case, with an open evidence, workshop and proposed decision phase, where everyone can see what's it all about and judge all the evidence. 
- 
- But let this RfA stand as a clear message to WMF and ArbCom that no desysop should ''ever'' happen in this way again.

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?type=revision&oldid=916750754&diff=916753505 
- 
- Summary: WMF warned me for unspecified behavioural problems, then warned me again because I should leave alone one specific editor (who we since learned has an undisclosed very close assocation with the Head of the Board of Trustees of the WMF, who has protected that editor at enwiki in the past already), and finally made an unprecedented move in banning me from enwiki (only) for 1 year, with a desysop added to it, because I said "Fuck ArbCom" when the arbs sent out a circular to all admins where they tried to give themselves some powers or authority they didn't have in policy.
- 
- After a lot of complaints on enwiki about this WMF move, they finally transferred the handling of the situation over to ArbCom. They eventually started a highly irregular case, and kept me banned until the case was all but wrapped (even though they agreed that the ban was invalid ("not required"). No public evidence was allowed (not even from people who wanted to associate their name to their evidence, as is standard and good), all evidence had to be sent secretly to the arbs, who would summarize it and keep the names hidden. 
- 
- The result of this was a very, very limited set of evidence, where after scrutiny the arbs found 4 pieces of relevant evidence from the past 18 (!) months, two of them showing incivility, and two admin actions:
- #my "Fuck Arbcom" comment (which is explicitly taken out of the equation by some (most? all?) arbs
- #A slightly sarcastic reply to GiantSnowman, made on my own user talk page after they mistakenly accused me of following them around: we ended up resolving this as adults, acknowledging where and why the communication went South.

- 
- When confronted with this, the arbs claimed that their votes for a desysop were based on the secret evidence they received from the WMF, even though they admitted that all of this evidence was available onwiki. Apparently, despite three months of scrutiny and an invitation to send the evidence in secret, ''no one'' either found this evidence, or thought it serious enough to raise it or to send it to ArbCom again. Even so, the Arbs felt they needed to desysop because there were "concerns" from some enwiki contributors. 
- 
- Which sets an extremely low bar for desysops, and makes it impossible to actually know what leads to desysop, and hence to avoid such actions or people in the future. 
- 
- Basically, this paves the way for the WMF and ArbCom to desysop anyone they don't like, based on evidence no one may see, and no one is able to find even though it is supposedly all available from checking contributions. Instead of an open, wiki-based system of checks and balances, where the arbs decide but everyone can check the evidence, comment on it, offer context and back history, we now have a travesty pretending to be a case but with the outcome decided from the start, independent of the evidence people sent in and the time people invested in this. That this happened to someone openly critical of the WMF and of some ArbCom actions is of course a coincidence.
- 
- And we shouldn't accept this. There are mechanisms to deal with problematic admins, I used these in the past. No failure of these mechanisms has been shown; what has been shown is that people have tried to use a different, secret mechanism to get a result without the annoying distraction of people actually checking that the complaints are valid and not distorted or unfounded.

+ ::I was not aware that any Arbs resigned because they were "stunned and appalled by what WMF have done". I do know that there are some arbs who have so far given very, very weak reasons for the desysop (if one claims that the desysop is for the civility issue, and also claims that the "Fuck Arbcom" comment doesn't come into play, then that means that the only actual reason for a desysop is supposedly my comment to GiantSnowman on my user talk page. Right...), who in words supported the unban but did nothing to actually make it happen (but at the same time didn't oppose or abstain the actual motion, but simply ignored it), arbs who made incomprehensible statements and refused to do anything about it when this was pointed out, arbs who made personal attacks, an arbcom who didn't have the rights to reveal anything of the T&S document unless it suited them (until you finally tried to use it for its actual purpose, which was way too late but otherwise useful), ... 
+ ::My post here was not "pointless", on the contrary. If expressing how I feel, how this whole episode comes across, is "pointless", then that is a sad state of affairs. Apparently it is perfectly allright for you arbs to use "evidence", "findings of fact" which boils down to "some people feel unhappy about Fram, but don't provide actual evidence for their claims", but when I post that I am unhappy about ArbCom because of X, Y and Z, it suddenly is unacceptable? All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal, something like that? 
+ ::Oh, and perhaps you can also answer the fundamental points of my post, i.e. the actual reasons for the desysop, instead of focusing only on the one sentence showing how I feel about this whole situation. "I made it clear to T&S and the Foundation that I felt their banning of you was out of process. My colleagues did the same. We wrote a public letter. We made comments on Wikipedia and by email to the Foundation and T&S, indicating that we felt the ban was out of process. We overturned the ban unanimously." You got permission to take over the case and do with it as you pleased ''two months ago''. You, and all you colleagues, couldn't be bothered to answer, even once, to the requests by me and by many others about why I couldn't be unblocked to participate in the case only, or at the very least have my talk page access restored so I could comment from there. Yes, in words you condemned the ban, but in practice you as a committee tried your very hardest to keep it in place until the case was over, and only the pressure of non-arbs here made an actual change. So no, I don't really am expressing my gratitude to ArbCom in glowing terms, and have no plans to do so. 
+ ::"you sometimes say things that are not just unhelpful, but can be demotivating, and this is not something that I feel is appropriate in an admin. " Too bad, it often is necessary to point out the truth, even if it is demotivating. Just like keeping someone banned for 100 days without good reason is rather unhelpful and demotivating, just like nitpicking over one sentence where an editor then expresses his impression of these unfortunate events is rather demotivating. If you want to desysop me over community concerns, then you aren't doing your job right. Create an evidence / workshop / FoF chain where you have actual, serious cases of me being "unhelpful and demotivating", preferably without good reason, and ''then'' you would have the necessary evidence to discuss a desysop. "Some people are unhappy" though is, I hope, still not an acceptable reason to desysop (and not really much better than "the WMF wants it").

+ == Comments by Fram ==
+ I share the confusion or unease displayed by some people above. It is to me rather unclear on what grounds individual arbs are currently supporting the desysop. In general, it seems that 4 issues in the last 18 months have been identified, 2 cases of incivility and 2 of admin actions?
+ 
+ #"Fuck Arbcom" (which is explicitly taken out of the equation by some (most? all?) arbs
+ #A slightly sarcastic reply to GiantSnowman, made on my own user talk page after they mistakenly accused me of following them around: we ended up resolving this as adults, acknowledging where and why the communication went South. See [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Fram/Archive_36#Festive_greetings here]
+ #My block of GorillaWarfare for a personal attack, where consensus at ANI was quite clear that it was a bad block ("bad" as in shouldn't have been made, not "bad" as in nefarious abuse of the tools)
+ #A 1 month block of MartinEvans for copyvio, which was seen as correct (reason) but way too long
+ 
+ In the FoF 8, the arbs have agreed that "The evidence provided by the community, as summarized on the evidence page, reveals instances of incivility or lack of decorum on Fram's part, but does not reflect any conduct for which a site-ban would be a proportionate response. In addition, the evidence reveals instances in which Fram has made mistakes as an administrator, including the overturned blocks of Martinevans and GorillaWarfare, but does not constitute misuse of administrative tools. " Before the Arbs realised that they have manouvred themselves in a corner they couldn't get out of, they supported in this FoF that the evidence " does not reflect any conduct for which desysopping would be a proportionate response", but instead of proposing a new FoF (8a), they rewrote this to change the meaning quite drastically.
+ 
+ The FoF9 explicitly confirms that, wrt "recent" incivility, only the above two incidents (at most) are considered. 
+ 
+ Can the arbs, especially those that support a desysop, confirm which of these 4 incidents actually are their concern and reason to vote for a desysop (apart from the "continuing a pattern from before March 2018" aspect).
+ 
+ I doubt that, if a regular case had been presented at ANI or at ArbCom citing these four diffs as the reason to start a case for a desysop, it would ever have been accepted (the remainder of the evidence is either old or invalid). While these issues show that I won't get the "admin of the month" award and should be more careful in words and deeds sometimes, it is hardly a convincing case to base a desysop on: nothing in it is really egregious, and to call it persistent is rather a stretch as well (certainly for the admin actions, and one uncivil comment per year is hardly a persistent pattern warranting a desysop or a case either). So it feels as if the only reason for a desysop is to appease the WMF,  as if a 100-days ban and an admonishment isn't enough.

- == Unacceptable behaviour by Ybsone ==
- {{u5|Ybsone}}
- I would like to report about the irrational behaviour of Ybsone. He edits pages without a source and when asked, behaves rudely. I would add links supporting my claim:
- 
- * https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:History/Ferrari_575M_Maranello (here, it is seen how he refused to add a source when inquired and admitted he was just lazy to do so)
- 
- * https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:History/Maserati_Coup%C3%A9 (another source highlighting his rude behaviour and non acceptance of sources when added. Also a violation of the three revert rule)
- 
- * https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maserati_Coup%C3%A9#/talk/3 (here he tells me to contact Maserati myself while being rude and only presents a self centred blog in his defence)
- 
- * https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:History/Maserati_Quattroporte (again, refusal to add a source and instead this [https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:MobileDiff/898133352 rude message] being posted on my talk page claiming that he is right when he has no proof backing up his theory)
- 
- I'm willing to put an end to his as I'm fed up with this user's behaviour. He has been the source of discouraging others to edit pages on Wikipedia by having a "I am always right" attitude. I request the admins to take appropriate action.[[User:U1Quattro|<span style="color:darkgreen;font-family:Verdana;text-shadow:2px 2px 2px #a6a6a6">''U<sup>1</sup> <sub>q</sub>uattro</span>]]&nbsp;[[User talk:U1Quattro|<span style="color:green;text-shadow:2px 2px 2px #"><small>''TALK''</small></span>]] 18:57, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
- 
- *Hmmmm.... When I look at the histories and talk pages linked above, I see '''two''' editors being rude, '''two''' editors edit warring, '''two''' editors threatening to report the other to "the admins", and '''two''' editors arguing about the quality (or existence) of the other's sourcing.  And to be honest (though I am not a car guy) it looks to me like U1Quattro is coming off as the worse of the two. I also note U1Quattro's recent blocks for similar behavior with another editor [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Administrators%27_noticeboard/IncidentArchive1009#Feud_with_U1Quattro (see here)], who he is still feuding with as of [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Chevrolet_Camaro_(sixth_generation)&diff=prev&oldid=898155737 a few minutes ago] ("''until a consensus is reached, the edit I made stays''"?  That's not how it works....).  It would be appreciated (and wise) if {{ping|U1Quattro}} and {{ping|Ybsone}} both dialed back the pointless aggression and edit more collegially, so you don't waste other people's time. But [[User:U1Quattro]], you're getting pretty close to a significant block yourself. --[[User:Floquenbeam|Floquenbeam]] ([[User talk:Floquenbeam|talk]]) 19:42, 21 May 2019 (UTC

- :I will state my case, and would like to point out at this time that I am constantly being harrassed by [[User:U1Quattro]]. My edits were reverted at least 19 times over the past 9 months and not once was it necessary, and not once was it correct.<br>
- :1. 612: [[Special:Diff/855578814]] My edit was reverted just on occasion of rewriting the article. With this correct engine links were reverted. Vandalism of my work.<br>
- :2. 575M: [[Special:Diff/879639849]] My correct, and later, sourced edit was reverted, even though previously there also was no source. [[Special:Diff/880025334]] Here I presented that my claim was sourced but it was deleted not improved anyway [[Special:Diff/880107734]] and [[User:U1Quattro]] begun a conversation accusing me of being lazy. His rude behaviour and unwillingness to improve an article. And so I inserted a source [[Special:Diff/880427587]], which was deleted maliciously [[Special:Diff/880566579]] and replaced by a "credible" source, ie. a forum... [[Special:Diff/880569080]]. My later update of dividing production numbers into two completely different models (practice very common) was just deleted [[Special:Diff/894035517]] because it is, quote: "Too confusing.", whch will be a very often defense mechanism for [[User:U1Quattro]], so he deleted it from infobox altogether. Again I see this as vandalism of my work.<br>
- :3. 599: [[Special:Diff/880107892]] A very long engine size was shortened as is common in any other Ferrari model but this edit was reverted because [[User:U1Quattro]] deemed it: "Not needed." It was then reverted yet again [[Special:Diff/880566293]]. [[User:U1Quattro]] then begun edit warring [[Special:Diff/891852265]] and [[Special:Diff/891870862]] about a picture clearly inserted into wrong place and was deaf to any constructive arguments. Especially frustrating when they are correct and with a little attention I would not have to waste my time to do one edit three times.

EB 112: Source I presented is the highest authority on Bugatti EB 110 and 112, but: [[Special:Diff/881425458]], [[Special:Diff/883089248]] Here he states that source shows 2 cars (it shows 3) [[Special:Diff/883134358]] Still stubbornly argues that he only sees 2 cars. [[Special:Diff/883136624]] Here he claims he added a more reliable source, that just proves my point further but after 4 revertions. Time surely wasted. Also see talk page for EB 112: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Bugatti_EB_112 where he claims that this "unofficial registry" is... "confusing" when it isn't. I even posted  three separate links to three chassis numbers [[Special:Diff/883138743]].<br>

- Anyone who does not agree with You is automatically called rude by You and is suddenly in violation of policies. Even presenting facts does not matter because You shift Your position from pro-manufacturer to anti-manufacturer whenever it suits Your current needs. You use forums when You need it and simultaneously devalue an automotive blog when it suits Your needs. You do not allow others to check Your work, change Your work or even do their work after You. You bury Your opponent in an avalanche of seriously sounding phrases and have nothing to back them up with except Your opinions. I am not envious of You and never will be and You will never be apologised to by me. You start the fight and then act like a child and scurry behind someone who You think You can manipulate and do Your bidding for You. When pointed out a simple thing You turn it's meaning around, blow it out proportion and then use as a weapon. You are not interested in learning, You are not intersted in policies you claim to protect, You are not interested in facts nor in consensus. Everything must be as You want it to be and we all are just in Your way. You are narcissistic and parnoid and You think everyone is after You and they are conspiring to oust You. You are very, very, very tiresome and actually disruptive to this community. We wouldn't be here if You wouldn't maliciously reverted a simple edit. You wanted all this attention. You needed to blame someone for Your shortcomings. You crave to act as a victim when someone endangers Your position. And don't worry I will soon publish my first book. I can be a very good editor but You will never be as good a historian as I am. I surely hope Administrators will see through Your facade of lies and manipulations and block You for good. Best.

- As of 31 May 2019 {{u|U1Quattro}} is still edit warring with my edits. Almost all Ferrari articles have production quotas in an infobox, that is an established practice. Yet {{u|U1Quattro}} removes this quotas from two articles that I have edited, because they are "unnecessary" or there is "no guideline" and leaves them on every other Ferrari article. This behaviour is clearly bias. He is not interested in an established layout but in reverting my edits and provoking a response. Here You have it.<br>

Frankly, my recommendation would be an indef block for U1Quattro for being just ''relentlessly obnoxious'' whenever anyone disagrees with them, and for not caring even a tiny bit about other people's time.  I know I would NEVER knowingly edit any article they were active on; editing with them seems like it would be a horrible experience.  If not, certainly a final "knock it the fuck off" warning would be in order.   I get the distinct impression YBSOne behaves similarly, but at a somewhat lower intensity level; I just don't know whether an indef block would be appropriate for them too, or if they're doing it in response to U1Quattro and get along well with others. I didn't get the impression Vauxford actually did anything really wrong this time around (after a previous run in with U1Quattro a while ago) but I could be wrong. Maybe they should be punished just for being dumb enough to dive into this nightmare thread?  I'm certainly not going to read this thing again to find out.  I suppose the cowardly way out (but possibly the most efficient, time-wise) would be mutual interaction bans all around, and maybe 1RR restrictions all around, and being put on notice of a zero tolerance policy for obnoxiousness going forward.  Doing that for all 3 seem like it would be rewarding U1Quattro for much more appalling behavior, though.  But it's easy.

- == MOS:ETHNICITY  on articles about Polish Jews ==
- 
- In the few weeks I've noticed some odd goings-on at the biographies of various Polish Jews with questionable, or even odious histories. Specifically, there seems to be a concerted effort to label them as "Jewish", and not as "Polish", generally in apparent ignorance or defiance of [[MOS:ETHNICITY]] and the "Nationality" parameter in Infobox person. I think I first noticed it at {{article|Salomon Morel}}, but it has been particularly apparent at {{article|Chaim Rumkowski}}, where multiple IPs and new/seldom-used accounts have shown up to make edits like [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Chaim_Rumkowski&type=revision&diff=896406646&oldid=895368812 this], [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Chaim_Rumkowski&type=revision&diff=897330512&oldid=897175505 this], [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Chaim_Rumkowski&type=revision&diff=897523962&oldid=897347901 this], [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Chaim_Rumkowski&type=revision&diff=897563263&oldid=897556590 this], [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Chaim_Rumkowski&type=revision&diff=897621787&oldid=897575891 this], [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Chaim_Rumkowski&type=revision&diff=897684593&oldid=897628760 this], [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Chaim_Rumkowski&type=revision&diff=898125756&oldid=898124494 this] and [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Chaim_Rumkowski&type=revision&diff=898155069&oldid=898126834 this]. There does not seem to be any similar effort to designate other types of biographies of Polish Jews (e.g. resistance fighters such as [[Yitzhak Zuckerman]], [[Frumka Płotnicka]], [[Hirsch Berlinski]], [[Chaike Belchatowska Spiegel]]) as "Jewish" and not "Polish". It seems unlikely that seldom used accounts such as {{user|Sophiel777}}, {{user|Rordayukki}}, {{user|Szydlot}}, {{user|Albertus teolog}}, {{user| Waćpan}}, {{user|Tashi}} suddenly discovered this article/dispute by chance. There is now a section on the article's talk page discussing the issue, but my concern is much more regarding the source of this influx of suddenly activated/reactivated and highly motivated editors.

- :Per MOS:ETHNICITY MOS:ETHNICITY,that ethnicity can be mentioned “Ethnicity, religion, or sexuality should generally not be in the lead unless it is relevant to the subject's notability.” The cases where somebody was involved in Holocaust and it played a major role in his life, or used his ethnic background as defence against persectution for crimes and it caused international controversy are I believe good reasons for mentioning the ethnicity in the first sentence.I believe the proper description would be Polish-Jewish rather than solely Polish or just Jewish in cases where Jewish ethnicity played a major role in life of a citizen of Poland.

We need to remember that people as Chaim Rumkowsky wasn't in fact Polish. They have Polish citizenship but they didn't identify with Poland and Polish nation (as many Jews in that time in history). Another example may be the recent edition in [[Stefan Michnik]] which was a Stalinist judge who was responsible for murdering many Polish anti-communist soldiers, generals etc. All information about his sentences have been deleted even though I provided two different sources.

- ::: '''Comment''' - I do not see why there need to be labels made in the article about [[Chaim Rumkowski]]. Disputes concerning nationality or descent are common and tend to be left out in most cases when a consensus is not achieved, as in [[Nicolaus Copernicus]] where only occupation is stated. However, it is appropriate to consider where the person lived, worked and/or obtained citizenship. Rumkowski held Polish citizenship and lived in Poland which is a dominating factor. In general context, I cannot stress enough that "Jewish" is '''not''' a nationality only an identity based on both racial descent and religion. All Polish Jews (considering they haven't emigrated) that are either secular or not Orthodox should be labelled as "Polish" per citizenship laws. "Polish-Jewish" or simply "Jewish" is a term appropriate for rabbis and religious or spiritual leaders. You do not see the label "American-Jewish" in articles about American actors, musicians, soldiers or politicians that are of Jewish heritage.

They have Polish citizenship but they ''didn't identify with Poland and Polish nation'' (as many Jews in that time in history).}} (emphasis mine). This is reminiscent of the "exclusionary antisemitism" common in pre-war Europe. Compare with: 
- ::;Exclusionary Antisemitism
- ::The exclusionary nature of antisemitism derives from the perception that the Jew stands outside the nation, and represents an alternative nation or an anti-national, internationalist collective. This idea thrived in the early twentieth century when Jews were said to be internationalist, and thus to stand against the interests of national communities. Because there are distinct Jewish communities in many countries, antisemites alleged that: 1) Jewish communities conspire to advance their collective interests to the detriment of their "host" countries and 2) the dominant forms taken by this conspiracy in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries are international finance and communism. In making such claims, antisemites sought to push out the Jew altogether.

I said it there and I will say it here, saying that this is an anti-Semitic trope. Apart from a very small number of ultra-orthodox Jews there is no evidence the Jews refused to speak (or did not see themselves) as Polish (serving in both the home army and the Free Polish forces).

We should, of course, keep antisemitic discourse off this project, but the case discussed above is very much a normal academic issue, not 'an antisemitic trope'. PS.

You don't require it in Israel, be you Israeli Arab or a Jew making aliyah.

- This is all kind of a stupid argument, because in both cases - that of [[Chaim Rumkowski]] and [[Salomon Morel]] - the information as to their ethnicity/nationality is pretty much implied/stated right there in the sentence. In case of Morel, whom Icewhiz is trying to "tag" as Polish [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Salomon_Morel&diff=prev&oldid=897848141], it says in the same damn sentence he worked for the '''Polish''' security services. So his citizenship is kind of obvious. In the case of Rumkowski the first sentence states that he was "head of the Jewish Council of Elders" which '''already''' implies he was Jewish. So there's no point in trying to "tag" him as Jewish either.

- *'''Comment''' This thread is an exemplary example of one problem that hounds editors in these fields: not prejudice (like antisemitism), but Wikipedia's reluctance to deal with it. This aspiration to keep Wikiepdia a "sterile space" where we only discuss editorial decisions and policy technicalities is, as we all know, ridiculous: Wikipedia is a reflection of society, and society has bigots, and so some Wikipedians are bigots. The assumption that calling out bigotry has a more "chilling" effect than not being able to call it out at all, has denial built in to it: that we don't have bigotry, that the usual processes are enough, that people minorities are "too sensitive" etc. And so in Wikipedia's current climate pointing prejudice out is a cause for indef blocking, while expressing prejudice is pastime that rarely gets addressed. It's not at all difficult to recognize: some editors are entirely concerned with eg. introducing sources that 3rd party RS describe as prejudiced; others repeatedly and explicitly express opinions that RS state are stereotyping, nationalistic, prejudiced etc. The fact that they're being polite about it (eg. [[Dog-whistle politics|dogwhistling]]) rather than burn crosses and paint swastiakas on synagogues doesn't make it any less severe, and Wikipedia should address it just like any other "real world" organization.

- :::{{rto|Slatersteven}} The concern I have is that some editors are using the label 'antisemitic' with little justification, but because of the 'political correctness', anyone who disagrees with them is risking being labelled an 'antisemite' (or a ill-judged defender of such). Hence, the [[chilling effect]] (intimidation). Do you want to stifle a discussion, scare some people away and bait some admins into political correctness-like blocking? Accuse your opponents of antisemitism and watch sparks fly. This is how we already lost ''the'' most prolific content editor in this topic area, [[User:Poeticbent]], author of 1000+ DYKs, including among others dozens of perfectly neutral and informative entries of Jewish WWII-era ghettos and such. Someone accused him of an antisemitic attitude based on a single comment, a certain trigger happy admin agreed, Poeticbent got a topic ban and left in disgust saying 'if this is my reward for 10 years and 1000+ articles, bye'. This is the real danger here - that a group of editors, portraying themselves as on the side of angels ('we fight bigots/antisemites/nationalists so of course we are the perfect righteous guys, if you disagre with us you are a bigot/antisemite/nationalist!'), are going to intimate everyone else of this topic area. The comparison to Jewish/Palestine is not the best, as in that area the sides are more 'gray' than if you paint this as a fight between 'antisemites' and whatever the other group should be called. It is basically a logical fallacy of of [[Loaded question]] - posing the question of 'how are we going to deal with those antisemites', conveniently skipping the part where we prove that there are really any antisemites to be dealt with. Now, to be perfectly clear, I am totally supportive of warnings and blocks/bans for editors who are shown, beyond doubt, to be promoting bigotry, antisemitism and like. But there's a difference between calm elimination of editors who are here to promote such problematic views, and a witch hunt that starts when someone accuses someone else of antisemitism, and people pile on with 'antisemitism? awful, truly awful, let's topic ban the whole bunch, nobody wants those kind of people here' with scant evidence that someone behavior is problematic beyond one or two unclear comments that could be variously interpreted. PS. Going back to the OP post, I think there issue of removing/adding words Polish/Jewish to a bio has nothing to do with antisemitsm, just with a form of nationalistic defense of one's nations/ethnicity. For unsavory individuals, people prefer not to think of them as their own. Classic example, Hitler - I am sure many Austrians would prefer a description of him as German, not Austrian, and vice versa. For Morel, ditto - many Poles prefer to think of him as Jewish, and Jews, as a Pole. There is no antisemtism here, BUT there's certainly a problematic attitude. One I have seen in the past on numerous articles that had nothing to do with Jewish identify Polish/German, Polish/Lithuanian/Belarus, etc. If an editor is doing little but adding/removing nationality/ethnicity claim to the articles, a topic ban can be in order (one preventing them from adding/removing claims of nationality/ethnicity). That's really is all we should be focusing here: are some of the reported editors doing noting else in this topic area but warring over ethnicity/nationality? If so, we have something to act upon. If not, nothing to look at here. --<sub style="border:1px solid #228B22;padding:1px;">[[User:Piotrus|Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus]]&#124;[[User talk:Piotrus|<span style="color:#7CFC00;background:#006400;"> reply here</span>]]</sub> 12:51, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
- :::As I said I am concerned that an over use of the accusation may just be being used to silence those who some users disagree with, just not (frankly) in this case. The user clearly used a common antisemitic canards to claim that certain people born in Poland, who held Polish passports were not Polish because some Jews (not even the ones who the articles are about) could not speak Polish. That is the problem. At the end of the day even if it was not antisemitism it was such a wholly invalid argument that it simply put is disruptive and tendentious as it is pure OR and synthases of the worst kind (and that IS being generous). Given that (even without the antisemitic edge to it)  could well justify an TBAN.

- :::: Valid concerns, and all the more reason to have a forum where they can be addressed by admins/moderators who actually know what they're doing. I'm fairly convinced that most editors - even those that are clearly biased on some issue or another - aren't prejudiced in the sense we're talking about here; but we both know some are - I bet if I asked you to you'd give the same names that I would - and these are the ones we need to be able to address, and address harshly.
- :::: As for Poeticbent: I didn't know him except for the 2-3 times where he rushed into a discussion, flouted some accusations and disappeared. That behavior, to me, is unacceptable regardless of motive. Giving him the benefit of the doubt, I will say this: Wikipedia as a social system is poorly designed (well - ''barely'' designed), and many a veteran editor grew tired of its impotence and abrasiveness, either left or were left. Put differently: the current ''system'' isn't built to accommodate and consider a variety of human behaviors and modes of communication; to minimize editor wear we need a system that is.

There is no indication that Tashi is making any disruptive edits in this topic area, there is no need to protect the topic area from his 'disruption' (which doesn't exist), and a broad topic ban is nothing but a major intimidation/chilling effect nuke (and a reminder that anyone posting in AN(I) who is not an admin asking for trouble).

- {{reply-to|K.e.coffman}} Re: {{tq|Tashi doubles down and complains that some Jews did not speak Polish "though they had lived there for a few centuries" [43] -- there where? Between 1795 and 1918 Poland did not exist as a nation state. Jews (and Poles, Belorussians, Ukrainians, etc) lived in the multi-ethnic German, Astro-Hungarian, and Russian empires.}} I see a logical issue and have a question. If on Wikipedia we describe nationality based on citizenship rather than ethnicity, why would [[January Suchodolski]] (for example), who was alive only during that period, be (accurately I assume) described as "Polish" in his lead when he did not have such citizenship? We could probably find many articles like this. So my question is this, when do we use ethnicity for nationality and when do we use citizenship? Is there a clear rule? From [[MOS:ETHNICITY]]: {{tq|In most modern-day cases this will be the country of which the person is a citizen, national or permanent resident, or if the person is notable mainly for past events, the country where the person was a citizen, national or permanent resident when the person became notable.}} I think that is an incomplete formulation of what we have to do in some circumstances.
- 
- {{reply-to|Xx236}} Re: {{tq|Ethnicity of Barack Obama is described by his picture.}} So many things wrong with this that I think it speaks to the fact that you should not be editing articles related to this topic. Other of your comments here and on [[Talk:History of the Jews in Poland]], also speak to a bias and agenda, for example: {{tq|Thousands of Israeli citizens ask for Polish citizenship and/or visit Poland. Israeli youth is indoctrinated and terrorised by Israeli guides/bodyguards to prevent informal contacts with Polish youth.}} This one also speaks of personal bias: {{tq|My family lost everything during the war. Our house in Belarus was plundered by Polish neighbours.}} Isn't there something else you can edit on Wikipedia?
- 
- I think there is some honest question over how to apply MOS:ETHNICITY as outlined above. It is tempting to say that being Jewish in Europe during the holocaust may be essential to providing the context demanded by the MOS, but I think this is limited to cases, as the MOS says, where the person is notable for something related to being Jewish. These issues can be reasonably worked out on article talk pages and dispute resolution venues. I do believe there is a problem with several editors who are fixated on Polish Jewry constantly being at odds with each other. This does not quite rise to a TBAN (except perhaps in two cases, one of which being rendered moot), and I think that would lead to an imbalance to prevent the open discussion of what is NPOV and RSed on these topics, but to my mind this pushes the limits of what is acceptable as far as activism by editors.

- I believe that there needs to be more admin involvement in {{u|Shadegan}}'s actions. I will try to make it short: About a week ago, I started cleaning the '''[[Feylis]]''' page by first and foremost 1) removing dead links, 2) unattainable references, i.e. ("فرهنگ ایران زمین، جلد 20، ص 406-409"), and 3) unreliable sources.[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Feylis&type=revision&diff=898633729&oldid=886976883 First edit, 25 May]. Thereafter I removed unsourced files[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Feylis&diff=next&oldid=898634296], removed unsourced segments[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Feylis&diff=next&oldid=898645289] and started finding academic references which the article really needed[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Feylis&diff=next&oldid=898645690][https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Feylis&diff=next&oldid=898701700][https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Feylis&diff=next&oldid=898726032].

- 
- Still no comments from Shadegan on what is wrong with the academia I have found.
- 
- Then we have the actions on '''[[Laki language]]'''. The user has been looking after this article for a long time, maintaining the claims that it is disputed language/dialect (as in, that academia profoundly disagrees). But this is not the case. Again, most of the info was either based on unattainable sources,[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Laki_language&diff=next&oldid=898765122] dead links,[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Laki_language&diff=next&oldid=898141710] simply unsourced for years[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Laki_language&diff=next&oldid=898724148] or just lies[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Laki_language&diff=next&oldid=898770203].

- It's the same behavior at [[Iraqi Lurs]], [[Laks (Iran)]] and [[Flag of Kurdistan]]. 
- 
- I don't know what next step is when Shadegan always calls it 'ethnocentric vandalism' when I ask them to elaborate on the issues they have with the references. Nor does the user reply when I demand sources for his baseless claims[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Flag_of_Kurdistan#@Ahmedo_Semsur%C3%AE:,_There_is_not_a_unique_flag_for_Kurdish_areas][https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Kurds&curid=17068&diff=900270896&oldid=899558616]. Looking at the talkpages, Shadegan has prevented any move towards reliable and sourced articles since 2016 at least[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Feylis#Ethnocentric_efforts_by_some_users] And then we have the baseless claims which many users have confronted.

- == Persistent disruptive editing by user SBS3800P ==
- 
- [[User:SBS3800P]] has been editing pages without proper citations. I observed on his talk page that other editors have previously tried to engage him about this disruptive and destructive behaviour, but he chose to ignore it.
- 
- For example, he made very odd claims about fare rules for a train station on [[Stevens MRT station|this]] page without citation. I have since removed the false information he added. 
- 
- He is recently on an editing spree, again, many without verified citations. He used words including "probably" without solid substantiation, is worrying and will damage the integrity of information posted on Wikipedia. One example is on the page [[Downtown MRT line|this]], he made a claim and used the word probably without citing any sources. Trust me, I have lived in the country for very long and have never heard of this claim before. [[MacPherson MRT station|Another]] absurd and not cited claim is of a train station with the least amount of climbing and walking.

Sure, we can use the licensing to remove the logos and we'd be completely fine in regards to [[WP:C|copyright]].

I don't think that we should keep the images as-is and use them on any projects by principle, because of the original reason that they were uploaded here (by "here", I mean to Commons) in the first place.

- '''A note about Commons:''' Wikipedians should appreciate that Commons does not make editorial judgements about how, whether or where images are used on Wikipedia. Likewise, Wikipedia should not make curatorial judgements about what Commons hosts. By all means comment and vote on Commons, but do so as a Commoner, appreciating what that project is about and its different values, not with your outraged Wikipedian hat on. Commons is not just a repository for Wikipedia. I see people voting delete or recommending the images be blurred or cropped because some editors have misbehaved on Wikipedia. Commons has lots of photos donated by companies, organisations, agents, etc. Many will include a brand name or logo and we do not blur logos. Commons isn't censored for logos. If the files are believed to be copyvios then they'll be deleted by normal policy.

- The suggested vandalism by [[User:Floquenbeam|Floquenbeam]] could lead to a block and could even result in a legal complaint by the rival firms they are suggesting to use -- trademark logos are not playthings for wiki wars. [[:c:COM:OVERWRITE|Commons policy on overwriting files]] disallows editors making controversial changes if overwriting.

- *'''Wishful anecdote''' I sometimes look at a big forum about a certain niche tech sub-industry.  Lots of users are there buying and reviewing the industry's products (some positive reviews, some negative, all influence buying decisions), lots of vendors are there, and vendors are free to pitch their wares as long as they identify themselves.  Sometimes a vendor will conceal their affiliation, pretend to be a user, and post glowing reviews of their own products or get users to shill for them.  If a vendor is caught doing that, all the positive reviews of the company's products get deleted while the negative ones are left standing.  Once that happened a few times, vendor behaviour tremendously improved.<p>We probably can't quite do that here on Wikipedia, but it would sure be nice.

- ==Ethnocentric vandalism edits==
- During the past days due to inattenion by involved users and as a result, ethnocentric abuse by some users that are involved in ethnic conflicts between two Iranan groups ([[Lurs]] and [[Kurds]]), were conducted. All pages related to Lurish people have been under mass invasion to change their background and identity towards their desires and wishes. You can have a look to the recent edit history of pages: [[Lurs]], [[Feyli Lurs]], [[Iraqi Lurs]], [[Lak people]], [[Laki language]], [[Southern Lurs]], [[History of the Lurs]] to find their catastrophic footprint. Unfortunately, there are not Lurish users in the English wikipedia to demonstrate the facts butI wonder how some ethnocentric totalitarian users are doing everything to their desires and wishes in such a bad way?!!

At the latter page, I see that he's removing content, which on the face of things is different from adding a hoax.  But here, the removal changes the meaning significantly — ''The first recorded stagecoach route in Britain started in 1610 and ran from Edinburgh to Leith'' means that the 1610 route was the first one on a big island, while ''The first recorded stagecoach route started in 1610 and ran from Edinburgh to Leith'' means that the 1610 route was the first one in the world.  Since Floquenbeam has added a quote from the source, which specifically talks about it being the first on a specific island and not in the world, Eddaido is indeed causing the article to provide false information.  This isn't simply removing an extraneous detail (e.g. changing "19 December 1610" to "1610"); if you delete words whose absence makes a significant change that can't be derived from the source, it's no less problematic than adding un-backed-up information in the first place.

- == Sky UK's IPv6 ranges and underestimating the collateral effect of rangeblocks ==
- 
- I didn't quite know where else to put this, so it's gone here. If it would be more appropriate in [[WP:VP/P]] or something, please just let me know.
- 
- When I found myself a affected by {{ping|NJA|p=}}'s block of 2A02:C7F::/32, I did some sleuthing and found out that 2A02:C78::/29 (which subsumes that range) is the entire allocation of IPv6 addresses to [[Sky UK]], the country's second largest ISP which accounts for 22% of the UK's internet traffic. Sky has completed its IPv6 rollout and few if any Sky connections will show up as IPv4 addresses.
- 
- This means that NJA's rangeblock should have affected one eighth of Sky users (or 1 in 36 UK residents), which already seems pretty high. Emphasis on ''should'': A cursory glance at contributions for each of 2A02:C78::/32, 2A02:C79::/32, et cetera, reveals that only 2A02:C7D::/32 and 2A02:C7F::/32 are currently in use. This means NJA's block affects half of all Sky IP addresses, amounting to 11% of UK connections. This is clearly far too much collateral damage.
- 
- This isn't a complaint about NJA, as others have previously (and recently) rangeblocked both 2A02:C7F::/32 and 2A02:C7D::/32, and this degree of disruption to UK users obviously wasn't intended. I thought this worth bringing up here to make sure blocks like this don't continue to happen.
- 
- Blocking half of the IP addresses of the second largest ISP in a large country isn't a sensible way to deal with vandalism. Yes, blocking 11% of the UK from editing Wikipedia anonymously will obviously lead to reduced vandalism, but then we might as well just turn off anonymous editing altogether. It's by sheer coincidence (Sky's allocated range and manner of allocating IPs) that so much of one country's traffic is even crammed into a blockable range (since /32 is the maximum rangeblock), thus creating far more collateral damage than should be considered acceptable.--<span style="font-family: Lucida Handwriting, Lucida Calligraphy, Bradley Hand ITC, cursive; font-size:90%;">[[User:Newbiepedian|Newbiepedian]]</span>&nbsp;([[User talk:Newbiepedian|talk]] · [[Special:Contributions/Newbiepedian|C]] · <span class="plainlinks">[https://tools.wmflabs.org/xtools-ec/?user=Newbiepedian&project=en.wikipedia.org X!]</span> · [[Special:Log/Newbiepedian|L]]) 21:10, 30 May 2019 (UTC)

It was the second such short-term block to the exact range this month. If there’s a narrower range that will be as effective then I am more than happy for another admin to revise this. I do not however buy in to the sense of alarm about blocking “11% of the UK”. Apparently 100% of those “11%” had no ill effects (except Newbiepedian of course) as I’ve seen nothing on UTRS about the IP (and plus it isn’t using Autoblock).

- ***For a long while, [[WP:SIP]] required us to notify the Foundation whenever we blocked the IP address(es) that represented virtually everyone in Qatar.  Per [[Demographics of Qatar]] and [[Demographics of the United Kingdom]], Qatar had about 2.6 million inhabitants as of early 2017, while According to the 2011 census, the total population of the United Kingdom was around 63,182,000.  If this rangeblock affects 11% of Britons, that's just short of 7 million people being affected, or nearly triple the number of people affected by a block of Qatar.  Barring a weird emergency (e.g. someone's spending weeks operating a vandalbot that's changing IPs every couple of seconds), I can't imagine a good reason to issue such a wide rangeblock for more than a short period of time.  Of course, we admins make good-faith mistakes, and I think it would be out of bounds to complain at NJA, who clearly wasn't aware of the number of people affected by this block — thank you, Newbiepedian, for explicitly disclaiming such a thing.  However, I do think we ought to remove this block and ought to be careful to avoid something similar in the future.  But how does one remove it?

- **Hey, [[User:NJA|NJA]], you may have misunderstood my comment.  ''I can't imagine a good reason to issue such a wide rangeblock for more than a short period of time'' means that I'm normally opposed to a longer block, but a short block (maybe 12-24 hours) isn't too bad.  I'm sorry if I confused you.  I'm just concerned that the size of the range is skewing what we're seeing — the wider a range and the more people using it, the more vandalism we're going to see from it.  (A massive amount of vandalism is committed by ::/0, but as that covers 340 undecillion [[short scale]] addresses, blocking it would be a really really bad idea.)  In my opinion, if you know how to calculate the number of addresses affected by a rangeblock (I don't), it's important that you consider that number when setting block length, and block a really big range only for a short while except in those really rare situations.

- It looks to me like IPv6 users from Sky tend to stay within the same /64 for months at a time. A single vandal switching to a new subnet during a vandalism spree could conceivably just be switching from one device in his house to another, or hopping on his neighbor's wifi, giving the appearance that his IP is dynamic over the entire /32 when it is not. It's also conceivable that an admin might see a bunch of vandals all over a /32 who are individually confined to /64s, and think they are one vandal. When casting a net that large (almost 1% of the English speakers in the world), it's very likely you'll notice more than one vandal with common interests or behaviors, since they are usually pretty basic. I have occasionally dug into the vandalism behind some broad range blocks and sometimes found that it was really just a handful of people who could be blocked individually without much difficulty.

- === Long-winded elaboration of the problem ===
- As I briefly mentioned on NJA's talk page, I think the primary issue (and something I feel folks aren't quite understanding) is that this is a specific problem with this specific range which has served to demonstrate a larger (and unfortunately highly technical) issue with how people are estimating potential collateral due to unfamiliarity with IPv6. I'm going to split this explanation into several paragraphs because otherwise it will end up totally illegible. I hope this makes some semblance of sense; if not, there's a bit of a TLDR at the bottom.
- 
- IPv6 ranges currently are mostly very spread out. The /29 range assigned to Sky contains capacity for 34,359,738,368 (over 34 billion) end users. The C7F and C7D sub-ranges each contain capacity for one eighth of that, i.e. 4,294,967,296 (over 4 billion) end users. "End user" here refers to a subnet, i.e. the internet connection of a home or small business router, each having capacity to serve 18 quintillion distinct hosts. But those numbers are totally meaningless, because capacity at the moment isn't easy to relate to actual usage due to the sheer breadth of IPv6 allocation.
- 
- Sky UK has been allocated a range of 2A02:C78::/29, which as stated contains capacity for over 34 billin users. Sky UK has a market share of roughly 20% in a country of roughly 60 million people, so there are 34 billion /64 subnets to allocate to approximately 12 million people. By contrast, Comcast (US) has a market share of roughly 40% in a country of roughly 320 million people, so that's 128 million users. But how does their capacity relate? Well, Comcast has the ranges 2601::/20 (17,592,186,044,416 end users), 2603:3000::/24 (1,099,511,627,776 end users), 2001:558::/31 (8,589,934,592 end users) and 2603:2000::/20 (another 17,592,186,044,416 end users). This means Comcast's total capacity is for 36,292,473,651,200 users – over 36 trillion. Clearly, these numbers are all pretty meaningless.
- 
- Now, at a glance, Comcast has about 10 times as many users as Sky UK, but over 1,000 times as many available addresses. But it's not quite that simple. These allocations are to what is reserved to the ISP, but currently neither of these two ISPs are allocating users across their entire allocated range(s). Sky UK is only allocating across 2A02:C7D::/32 and 2A02:C7F::/32. I'll call these /32 ranges "MR" (maximum range) for convenience, since that's the maximum size for WP rangeblocks. So, Sky allocates users across 2 MRs. What ranges does Comcast actually use? 2601::/32 through 2601:102::/32 (103 MRs), plus 2603:3000::/32 through 2603:3027::/32 (28 MRs), plus 2001:558::/32 and 2001:559::/32. So, in other words, Sky UK is allocating 12 million people across 2 MRs, while Comcast is allocating 128 million people across 133 MRs.
- 
- So, TLDR: '''IP ranges of the same size do NOT necessarily have the same level of collateral effect'''. As this example shows, blocking a Comcast MR will affect up to about 900k people, while blocking an MR belonging to Sky UK will affect up to about 6 million, almost 7 times as many. Currently what it looks like to me is that there is a broad-brush approach to figuring out the level of collateral effect which is to just assume that ranges of the same size can be treated the same, but that is <u>unequivocally false</u>. Before blocking an ISP-level range (which is what the /32 maximum range '''is'''; no normal organisation would be assigned one), administrators should research:
- 
- * to what ISP that range belongs
- * how many other ranges the ISP owns
- * what parts of those ranges are actually in use
- * how many users the ISP has (roughly, from market share × population)
- 
- Then, and ''only'' then, have you obtained a picture of the potential collateral effect of your rangeblock with any semblance of accuracy.--<span style="font-family: Lucida Handwriting, Lucida Calligraphy, Bradley Hand ITC, cursive; font-size:90%;">[[User:Newbiepedian|Newbiepedian]]</span>&nbsp;([[User talk:Newbiepedian|talk]] · [[Special:Contributions/Newbiepedian|C]] · <span class="plainlinks">[https://tools.wmflabs.org/xtools-ec/?user=Newbiepedian&project=en.wikipedia.org X!]</span> · [[Special:Log/Newbiepedian|L]]) 03:52, 31 May 2019 (UTC)

- :I think, though, you have to be careful in deciding that something is actually "desperate" rather than "completely ordinary". If one person is vandalizing a wide variety of pages from a wide range of IPs, then yes, absolutely, those are desperate circumstances. I estimate that non-bot admins make, what, 1000 blocks a day? By numbers alone, you expect that we should be blocking 10 or so Sky users every day. That's not a desperate circumstance. Vandalism on 10 different subnets of Sky, all on articles related to British popular culture, well, that should just be a daily occurrence. Back in ancient times when vandals didn't have a choice but to use IPv4, if we saw 10 obviously distinct vandals on 10 different static IPs belonging to the same ISP, we didn't nuke the whole network. And we shouldn't be nuking an entire network just because each vandal now has a /64 instead of a single address. We also shouldn't be assuming that two vandals are the same person because they have very vaguely similar interests and live in the same countryohmygodhecanchangehisiptoanythingwhatsthechancesomanypeopleinenglandwouldbemadattheresamay? But anyway, I think I totally understand the impulse. ''You're manning AIV, reports keep coming in, vandal after vandal. Oh, here's clearly changing his IP, better do a range block. Oh, this vandal has a very similar address. Hmm. Not the same article, but also targeting the same topic area. And another one, and another one?'' Anyway, my 2p, don't block an entire ISP just because a bunch of vandals use it, if those vandals can be individually blocked. Rangeblocks are for people who can't be stopped otherwise, not for stopping several different people at once because it's faster than figuring out their individual ranges. Honestly, I think this probably needs a software solution. Most residential hookups for many ISPs have a relatively stable /64. If the MediaWiki software defaulted to treating every address in a /64 as having a unified identity - one contributions list, one talk page, one IPname - but still gave the option to see deeper in case this is wrong, I think it would clear a lot of confusion. It would also help make it obvious that what might seem like a nest of vandals is actually several individuals. Blocks would default to that subnet, and often work.

- ::Yes, tools need to treat all of an IPv6 /64 as though it were a single user, AFAIK. No, I don't think it is confusing this particular conversation, but it does makes people do a lot of extra work and it would be nice if things were improved. {{Ping|Newbiepedian}} there are calculation mistakes above. 2601::/32{{Snd}} 2601:102::/32 = 0x103 = 259 MRs, not 103. 2603:3000::/32{{Snd}} 2603:3027::/32 = 0x28 = 40 MRs, not 28.

- ===Count edits instead of editors?===
- Instead of trying to count users (whatever a user is) that would be blocked, or whatever it is you're trying to do, why not have a gizmo that  tells you, as you contemplate a block of range R for H hours, the number of distinct ''edits'' that would have been blocked had that block been in effect during the H hours immediately past (or at this same point one week ago, or ...)? That's unambiguous, and I think it's the true measure of collateral damage. [[User:EEng#s|<b style="color: red;">E</b>]][[User talk:EEng#s|<b style="color: blue;">Eng</b>]] 08:25, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

When I reverted his edit that deleted ALL tags, he instead insist on his version and said I should discuss these changes first, when already several other have questioned the POV of the article on the talk pages for a long time. He seems to be unable to make arguments beside being a wiki lawyer and make personal attacks, when others have made clear stated point.

- Yes, this is significant undue weight.  If I scroll to the top of "Arguments for the US to implement tariff sanctions" and PageDown, this section occupies nearly five screens, and from "Temporary reprieve" to the beginning of the China subsection of "Influence" is a little bit over three screens.  The only China-specific section is the Influence/China subsection, which is less than one screen.  You can't claim balance when one side gets eight times the coverage.  Hint: wait until secondary sources come out (those written '''after''' the fact), rather than using primary sources (those written at the time of the event), because reliable secondary sources will provide a good overview instead of "Here's the latest X you should care about" typical of primary sources like news reports.

- Hi there.It seems this has been escalating for too long.Let me explain a few of my thoughts on this.
- 
- I would like to mention that wikipedia should be a platform based on factual information,rather than content that favours a particular side,and more importantly,information that may be unnecessary to the context of the article,in this case,the article on [[China-United States trade war]].I have warned user [[User:Viztor|Viztor]] that his edits may be unconstructive to the context of the article,and revealed to him proper methods to publish articles in the future of such manner.Despite several warnings,he has been persistent to his actions and has been reluctant to abide by proper editing.He has been warned by other users also,and in retaliation he has been accusatory and seems to take it too personally.Hence,i request that all edits to this article be reviewed by proper management,as this topic may seem to be of a sensitive manner and the article,in fact,could possibly pose serious conflicts in real life,as people gain information to these articles.Nevertheless,the edits have been proper thus far.
- 
- I would also like to add to some arguments placed by some users on this topic.Although there might be information that does not well represent a particular side(or in this case,quantified),it does not mean that the article is going towards a biased avenue.The information thus far has been as accurate as possible and ONLY information that is related to the context should be added,rather than information that might actually be off-topic.Many of such previous information has included military personnel,background information of companies,or historical information of countries.These are topics that have been already discussed on other pages,and should not necessarily be included.If such information needs to be included,they should be linked to other articles,rather than to the above-mentioned article.I hope that the administrators would take a proper measures that such incidents are prevented as much possible.I would also like to add that i feel that the block on my rights was baseless and not needed,as i was only protecting the article form further damage.Nevertheless,it did not really affect me too much as i was in fact away during much of the time.Thank you.

- 
- First some background, {{u5|Bring back Daz Sampson}} was previously indefinitely blocked in October 2016 by {{u|Bbb23}} per [[:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Sevcohaha]]. User talk page access (TPA) was also removed by Bbb23 a day after blocking the account per [[:Special:diff/Bbb23/745684249|this edit]] because of "inappropriate use of user talk page while blocked". An attempt made by another administrator {{u|Ivanvector}} [[:Special:diff/Ivanvector/745680072|here]] to try and help out at the time apparently was rebuffed per [[:Special:diff/Ivanvector/745694151|this post]]. An unblock request for {{u5|Sevcohaha}}, one of the previously blocked sockpuppet accounts, had been declined by [[:Special:diff/Vanjagenije/709227603|here]] by {{u|Vanjagenije}} earlier in March 2016, partily based upon [[:Special:diff/709224466|this post]] by Bbb23, with TPA access for that account also being revoked shortly thereafter. The Bring back Daz Sampson account was created a few months after that in August 2016, while the Sevocohaha account was still under blocked so techinically that's [[:WP:EVADE]]. After the accout was blocked, the editor apparently decided to wait out the block per [[:WP:SO]] and appeal after about six months had passed. An UTRS unblock request was filed and copied and pasted to use talk page [[:Special:diff/Just Chilling/776878202|here]] and TPA was restored by {{u|Just Chilling}} in April 2017. In their unblock request, Bring back Daz Sampson admitted to the socking and promised to not repeat the behavior which led to their being indef'd. Positive comments in support were posted by [[:Special:diff/Ivanvector/777008127|here]] and [[:Special:diff/JamesBWatson/777311136|here]] repectively by Ivanvector and {{u|JamesBWatson}}, and the unblock request was accepted by Bbb23 [[:Special:diff/Bbb23/780737315|here]]. All of this seems fine; an editor made some mistakes and was blocked as a resutlt. Some time passed and the editor was unblocked because it was believed they had learned from their mistakes and was committed to moving forward and not repeating them.{{pb}}One of the socks ({{no ping|Målfarlig!}}) had been previously blocked by {{u|Swarm}} for [[:Special:diff/Swarm/682053651|edit warring and personal attacks]] in September 2015. Bring back Daz Sampson admitted to being Målfarlig! in their unblock request, so part of the behavior they were stating they were not going to repeat would also be making personal attacks against others. Recently, however, it appears that they is going back to making unsubtatiated comments about other editors in some talk page discussions and at an AFD. None of these comments appear to have been provoked in anyway; people weren't pinging them or even mentioning them by name let alone posting any negtive comments about them. It would've been entirely possible to participate in these discussion without making any comments about any other editors. Yet for some reason, they felt that these discussions were the right time and place to try and revive old disputes with others. Here are the most recent diffs:
- # May 11, 2019, [[:Special:diff/Bring back Daz Sampson/896572069]]: An attempt to use a discussion at WT:FOOTY about non-free content use to re-hash previous discussions where files were removed by administrators for not complying with [[:WP:NFCCP]]; the discussion was perfectly civil and there was no reason to make accusations or cast aspersions against other editors. A personal attack against {{u|Number 57}} was even mixed in ''under the guise of supporting their position'' in the discussion. Requests by [[:Special:diff/Marchjuly/896572069|myself]] and [[:Special:diff/Number 57/896632694|Number 57]] for diffs and a striking of the attack was never responded to and the thread was archived.
- # June 2, 2019, [[:Special:diff/Bring back Daz Sampson/899892694]]: More accusations made in a different FOOTY discussion which seem only intended to try and re-start some long resolved dispute. Perhaps things didn't get resolved in a way that Bring back Daz Simpsom wanted perhaps, but they were resolved none the less. Stating that I exhibit "[[:monomania]]" is something that was previously done [[:Special:diff/SevcoFraudsters/703337540|here]] a little more than three years ago by one of the blocked sock accounts.
- # June 2, 2019, [[:Special:diff/Bring back Daz Sampson/899890243]]: This AfD !vote could've just as easily been made without mentioning any other editors; yet for some reason, this editor felt the need to mention {{u|GiantSnowman}} by name even though Giant Snowman isn't participating in the AfD at all. It's almost as if this was a pre-emptive personal attack or casting of aspersions in advance just on the off chance that Giant Snowman might eventually show up and !vote.
- I don't think there's any doubt that Bring back Daz Sampson makes a lot of positive contributions to articl<u>e</u>s<s>e</s> about soccer, particularly women's soccer. The problem is not really their ability to do that. The problem has to do with their behavior and their apparent inability to simply stick to commenting on content and avoid commenting on other editors as much as possible. All editors have their bad moments, and probably post things they wouldn't; morevoer, three posts might be only a small sample size when it comes to this type of thing for someone with no history of having problems with others. Even just three posts, however, might be one too many when you're coming back from an indefinite block<u>, and</u><s>. Moreover,</s> there's no indication there won't be more such posts from here on. FWIW, I'm not looking for a reinstatement of the indefinite block; I'm not even looking for a short-term<s>ed</s> block to be issued or even an apology to be made. I do, however, think that a stern final warning is needed that this type of conduct is not going to be tolerated by the community and that this editor is going to be expected to try to figure out a way to honor what they posted in their unblock request and also what they posted [[:Special:diff/Bring back Daz Simpson/781279222|here]]. If this type of behavior continues after this final warning, then the community can decide to block if they want. -- [[User:Marchjuly|Marchjuly]] ([[User talk:Marchjuly|talk]]) 06:12, 3 June 2019 (UTC);<small>[Note: Post edited by Marchjuly to correct spelling of the word “articles”, to change “short-termed” to “short-term”, and to replace the word “moreover” with “and”. — 20:58, 3 June 2019 (UTC)]</small>

I do believe that the user sincerely misinterpreted the [[WP:SO|standard offer]] at that time and was treated somewhat harshly for it, and after having it explained and going out of their way to [https://simple.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Bring_back_Daz_Sampson&oldid=5506857 thumb their nose] at my advice, it seems they actually did take it. Their [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Bring_back_Daz_Sampson&oldid=777008127#Appeal April 2017 appeal] was a genuine exploration of their behaviour and it was easily accepted. All of that is to say: I think they're here for the right reasons, and capable of listening to advice when it's given gently.
- :We should also note that in the past this user (under their many usernames) has suggested they are subject to ongoing harassment, which it seemed to me at the time of our last interaction to likely be the case. A user working in content creation for female athletes attracting gender-based harassment is no big surprise. However, they have indeed already been told many times that they should contact an administrator if that is the case, not respond with personal attacks.
- :And having said ''that'', I have noticed there have been a lot of AfD nominations for biographies of female football players just over the last month or so, correlating quite neatly with reports in various places about Bring Back Daz Sampson's incivility. While it's probably not harassment ''per se'', for someone who works in an underrepresented topic to have much of their work broadly put up for deletion, as though someone is on some kind of mission, it likely stings. Still, [[WP:NPA|no personal attacks]] is policy.

- * The reason I am here is that I was notified of this discussion because I had previously suggested removing a block on this editor to give her another chance. I am a great believer in giving blocked editors another chance. I have now checked all of her comments on talk pages and other discussion pages from 23 April. (In "comments" I do not include such edits as archiving her talk page, adding categories or WikipProject banners, and so on.) When she is not expressing disagreement with other editors there is no problem, but in '''every single edit''' in which she expresses disagreement with one or more other editors she does so in a belligerent and contemptuous manner, doing such things as throwing insults at them and accusing them of incompetence or bad faith. An indefinite block on this account was lifted on the basis that she had acknowledged her past faults and would avoid doing the same again. I checked her editing immediately after that unblock, to see whether she had at first done better and then slipped back, or whether she had never improved. For a long time she simply didn't make comments in discussions at all, but when she returned to doing so '''the very first talk page comment she made after the block''' contained a personal attack. Looking through the history of her many accounts (12 that I know of; there may be more) I see that she has repeatedly been blocked and then claimed that she will not do the same again. As far back as December 2013 an editor wrote in an ANI discussion "This user is incapable of civil behaviour", and her actions since then have done nothing but confirm that impression. Over the course of more than five years there have been I don't know how many blocks on her various accounts, there have been ANI reports on her, discussions of her editing on talk pages of different accounts, and assurances from her that she now understands what was wrong with what she was doing, and she won't do it again. If she were at all likely to improve then she would have done so by now. Ivanvector says she is "capable of listening to advice when it's given gently", but listening to advice and then not taking it is no use. I don't see the evidence of "ongoing harassment", but perhaps Ivanvector can link to it; I do, however, see an editor who interprets civilly-expressed disagreement with her as harassment or attacks, and responds with attacks.  The last indefinite block was lifted following recommendations from  Ivanvector and me that it be lifted. Ivanvector said then "it seems apparent you know what went wrong that led to your block", and at the time I agreed with that, but knowing what went wrong is no help if that knowledge does not lead to a change in her ways, and it hasn't. I supported an unblock "to give him or her another chance". Giving her that other chance has not succeeded, and the indefinite block should therefore be restored.

- ::I can't disagree with anything JamesBWatson wrote here. "Belligerent and contemptuous" describes my previous interactions with the user as well, notwithstanding what I wrote above. I wasn't aware of accounts predating Sevcohaha, but if this has been going on for six years without any marked improvement except when they need to convince someone reviewing an unblock request, then it's time we stopped playing their game. I support restoring the indefinite block, and they're going to have to do something better than swear they won't do it again this time.

- :::I think that any claims of harassment should be taken seriously and looked into per [[:WP:AOHA]], but doing so means that diffs need to be provided as examples of this type of behavior to make sure it's not just a case of [[:WP:HA#NOT]]. It appears that this editor was using other accounts before Sevcohaha; in their April 2017 unblock request they mentioned two specifically by name (Clavdia Chauchat and Målfarlig!), and stated they would declare all of their previous user names on their user page if their account was unblocked. They never got around to doing that and maybe there's no point in doing so now, but a listing of all of the accounts and perhaps and explanation as to why (at least as best as can be remembered) they were created might be helpful in figuring out if they were really harassed. I posted here because of my concerns about the three comments I referenced in my OP. I don't see this editor being harassed by anything posted in any of those three particular discussions; they weren't even mentioned by name prior to their posts. Rather, I see the posts as an attempt to try and insert personal comments about others the editor might have previously had disagreements with over various things Wikipedia; an attempt to use the discussions for per [[:WP:BATTLEGROUND]], [[:WP:SOAP]] and [[:WP:RGW]] reasons. They appear to have been more upset by who was posting comments than what was actually being discussed, which is probably why their comments focused more on specific editors and their perceived flaws than actual content. It was a chance to take a cheap shot at another editor they might not really like; so, they took it. Maybe they hoped the other editors would lose their cool and do something that would get them in trouble; maybe they figured their last unblock combined with all of their positive contributions over the years would outweigh any behavior issues. You can't really tell someone they aren't truly being harassed if they feel they are, but specific examples are going to be needed so that the community can make a proper assessment. Personally, I don't think trying to use [[:WP:BIAS]] as a de-facto justification for continuously attacking others or casting aspersions is a good approach to have been following, and, as pointed out by Ivanvector, it would've been much better instead to get administrators involved at a much earlier stage. -- [[User:Marchjuly|Marchjuly]] ([[User talk:Marchjuly|talk]]) 21:58, 3 June 2019 (UTC)
- ::::Just going to add one more diff for reference because I think it further illustrates what {{u|JamesBWatson}} mentions above about how this editor responds when they agree with someone and how they respond when they feel someone is in their way or otherwise preventing them from doing something they want to do. {{u|Swarm}}'s response [[:Special:diff/Swarm/864394656|here]] to a [[:WP:RFP/A]] request made by this editor doesn't seem to be rude or harassing in any way, and even seemed to include a request for further clarification. However, when the editor posted [[:Special:diff/Bring back Daz Simpson/875895854|here]] on another editor's user talk page a little over a month later, they seemed to feel the need to label Swarm as a [[:jobsworth]] (just reading the first sentence of the "jobsworth" article should be enough to understand why refering to a Wikipedia administator in such a way is probably not a good idea); not specifically mentioning Swarm by name seems irrelevant here because it wouldn't take much to figure which editor was being discussed. Anyway, I have no idea whether either Swarm or this editor remembered their earlier interaction regarding the Målfarlig! account and it affected their response, but this editor could've posted something on Swarm's user talk further explaining why they wanted to be "autopatrolled", even after the request had been formally denied [[:Special:diff/Swarm/864842125|here]]. Instead, this editor somehow felt entitled to take a cheap shot at Swarm on some other editor's user talk page, even though the response to the "jobsworth" comment given [[:Special:diff/Onel5969/876052559|here]] actually seems to agree with what Swarm posted at RFP/A. This is similar to what was done in the three diffs I referenced in my OP in that the a personal comment about another editor was added when pretty much the same thing could've easily be stated without posting anything good or bad about anyone else. -- [[User:Marchjuly|Marchjuly]] ([[User talk:Marchjuly|talk]]) 05:19, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

- {{pagelinks|RT (TV network)}}

- While on holidays, I noticed (I do not remember how to be honest) the edit-warring whoch started with [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=RT_%28TV_network%29&diff=899412592&oldid=898438514 this edit] which I believe to be pointed. The topic is very sensitive, and was discussed multiple times (though not this particular formulation, just merely a general propaganda issue) multiple times at the talk page (search archives for "propaganda"). When I was there, [[User:Galassi|Galassi]] already had two reverts, and [[User:Ahrtoodeetoo|Ahrtoodeetoo]] was at the initial revert plus two. I reverted them inviting to the talk page discussion. That was pretty much the only thing I could do on an ipad and without much time available, but in the hindsight it was a bad decision, since [[User:Ahrtoodeetoo|Ahrtoodeetoo]] now believes I am a party in this content dispute (though I never made my position clear, and generally I prefer making administrative actions in EE area rather than participating in disputes). Still, my edit was reverted by [[User:El komodos drago|El komodos drago]], they were reverted by Galassi, and they were reverted by Ahrtoodeetoo. Apparently, Ahrtoodeetoo and El komodos drago before starting the reverts has a discussion on the talk page, which did only attract them and one IP who disagreed with them (see [[Talk:RT (TV network)#Misleading wording about misleading content]]). Today, noticing the development, I went to the talk page Ahrtoodeetoo, asking to self-revert and have a proper discussion at the talk page (possibly opening an RfC). The summary of their response was that they believe consensus has been achieved at the talk page, and they are reverting to establish this consensus. They refused to self-revert. They also took my warning as "threats" and said they will ask for a boomerang, which I am sure they will do after I notify them of this topic. Still, I find the situation completely unacceptable, and it has to be resolved somehow.--[[User:Ymblanter|Ymblanter]] ([[User talk:Ymblanter|talk]]) 18:17, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

- At my end, I was under the impression that Galassi had recognised that their edits were in error (the mistake was easy to make as I have explained on the article talk page) as they had not reverted R2's edits for 19 hours or offered an explanation on talk. I was under the impression that, given they said {{tq|Go to the talk page and discuss}}, Ymblanter wished the version arrived at on the talk page to stand.
- I was unclear how else to proceed given that Galassi was not responding on the article talk page and was deleting R2's comments on their talk page. I am sorry if this was unreasonable. [[user:El komodos drago|El komodos drago]] ([[User_talk:El_komodos_drago|talk to me]]) 20:46, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

- I'm not involved but I had some time on my hands, so...
- #The text at issue is that a UK gov't regulator {{tq|...&nbsp;has repeatedly found RT&nbsp;... of broadcasting "materially misleading" content.}} This text was added on [[Special:Diff/701288948|23 January 2016]] and remained until [[Special:Diff/899412592|29 May 2019]]. It is the longstanding status quo language.
- #On [[Special:Diff/896714580|12 May 2019]], {{u|El komodos drago}} posted on the talk page about changing the language "to show that there was only one case".
- #On [[Special:Diff/899119403|28 May]], an IP editor replied on the talk page, disagreeing based on the sources suggesting multiple instances. Up to this point, nobody changed anything in the article yet.
- #[[Special:Diff/899232212|Later on 28 May]], {{u|Ahrtoodeetoo}} (R2) posted on the talk page agreeing with the suggestion to change the language.
- #On [[Special:Diff/899412592|29 May 2019]], R2 changed it from "of broadcasting" to "on one occasion found it had broadcast". The edit summary included "See talk." This was arguably a [[WP:BOLD]] change to longstanding (3+ years) status quo language without consensus on the talk page (two editors-to-one, only 24hrs since the second editor in favor posted).
- #[[Special:Diff/899416224|Later on 29 May]], {{u|Galassi}} reverted R2's change. This was arguable a proper revert under the [[WP:BRD|bold, revert, discuss]] policy. The [[WP:ONUS]] would be on those wishing to change the longstanding language to establish consensus before changing it.
- #[[Special:Diff/899423771|R2 restored it later on 29 May]]. That's out of BRD process; it's 2RR.
- #[[Special:Diff/899428093|Galassi reverted again on 30 May]]. That's 2RR for Galassi.
- #[[Special:Diff/899429404|10 minutes later on 30 May]], R2 posted to the talk page pinging Galassi and saying he should come to the talk page instead of edit warring.
- #[[Special:Diff/899429514|R2 also restored the content on 30 May]]. That's 3RR for R2, though not in 24hrs, but 48hrs. R2 at this point is not following WP:BRD, by changing longstanding text without consensus. As of this point, there are two editors in favor of the change (El komodos drago and R2) and two editors opposed to the change (the IP editor and Galassi), so still no consensus.
- #[[Special:Diff/899544349|Ymblanter reverted on 30 May]] with edit summary "Go to the talk page and discuss." This is the only edit Ymblanter has made as far as I can tell, which does not make him [[WP:INVOLVED]]. An admin restoring the status quo with direction to get consensus on the talk page is like page protection; it's an admin action, not an action as an editor involved in a content dispute. Ymblanter did not post about this on the talk page and expressed no opinion on the underlying content dispute, as far as I can tell.
- #[[Special:Diff/899938566|On 2 Jun]], El komodos drago restored the text. There had been no additional talk page discussion.
- #[[Special:Diff/900008893|Later on 2 Jun]], Galassi reverted, which is 3RR for Galassi (though not in 24hrs, but the third revert in four days).
- #[[Special:Diff/900024711|R2 restored the text]]. Not 4RR because it wasn't within 24hrs, but the fourth revert.
- #Finally, [[Special:Diff/900144556|on 3 Jun]], {{u|El_C}} protected [[meta:The Wrong Version|the wrong version]] :-), the one with the change to longstanding text that does not have consensus.
- Both Galassi and R2 are edit warring, but R2 is edit warring from the wrong side of BRD, by changing longstanding status quo text without consensus. I think [[Special:Diff/900008893|this version]] (the same as had been in the article since 2016) should be restored, and it shouldn't be changed until/unless there is consensus on the talk page. Hopefully the full protection will allow time for that consensus will form one direction or the other. <span style="white-space:nowrap;">– [[User:Levivich|Leviv]]<span style="display:inline-block;position:relative;transform:rotate(45deg);bottom:-.57em;">[[User Talk:Levivich|ich]]</span></span> 21:07, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

There are dispute resolution mechanisms in place for this situation: [[WP:3O]], [[WP:DRN]], and holding an [[WP:RfC]]. Practically speaking, all you need is to have one or two more editors look at the sources and give their opinion, and you can get that with 3O or DRN.

- :{{u|Levivich}}, you have a lot of details right but some key details wrong. First off, my May 29 edit was not a revert. I reverted 3 times over 5 days. Second, you missed the fact that after Galassi reverted without discussing, I invited them to join the discussion (1) in my revert edit summary, (2) an their user talk page, and (3) by pinging them on in the article talk page. The article can't be held hostage by an editor who refuses to participate in the discussion. No offense but this is pretty basic stuff.

- ::{{u|Ahrtoodeetoo}}, your May 29 edit wasn't a revert, it was a [[WP:BOLD]] edit–a change to longstanding status quo language without consensus. Galassi's first reversion of that BOLD edit was proper within the [[WP:BRD]] process. It was a proper revert, even without discussion. After that, ''both'' of you are engaged in reverting multiple times over a short period of time (i.e., edit warring). Yes, you did your part in terms of posting on the talk page and inviting the other editor to discuss, but you don't get to make a BOLD edit and have it "stick" ''while'' there is discussion. That's not how BRD works. Your BOLD edit stays ''out'' <u>until</u> there is consensus, not "stays in while we discuss it". That's basic stuff, too. The proper course of action, after Galassi reverted your BOLD edit, if Galassi didn't join the talk page discussion (or even if they did and gave their reasons for opposing the change), would have been to pursue dispute resolution (3O, DRN, RfC), not to revert Galassi's revert. One side in a content dispute can't unilaterally decide to discount the other side of the content dispute and just charge ahead with the change. You need to seek out additional input from other editors to cement consensus before making the change to the article. <span style="white-space:nowrap;">– [[User:Levivich|Leviv]]<span style="display:inline-block;position:relative;transform:rotate(45deg);bottom:-.57em;">[[User Talk:Levivich|ich]]</span></span> 21:45, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

You did not attempt to engage in talk page discussion between your BOLD insertion and your restoration of that BOLD insertion after it had been reverted. An hour after you were reverted, you just clicked the undo button, you didn't engage in the D of the discussion cycle before pressing the undo button. So it is not true that you "did everything" before edit warring. Edit warring was your instant and repeated response, and you edit warred ''before'' pinging Galassi to the talk page. What happened was: you came across a talk page discussion, picked a side, changed it to what you thought it should be, and when someone reverted it, you edit warred. This is not "exemplary conduct". It's not a huge deal, but you persist in maintaining you did nothing wrong, when you did.

- The crucial issue of disruptive behaviour here is not the reverting as such, but the fact that Galassi kept reverting (on 29 May, 30 May and 2 June [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=RT_(TV_network)&diff=prev&oldid=900008893]), when there already was quite incontrovertible evidence on the talkpage that his edit was misrepresenting the source (posted by R2 on 28 May [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:RT_(TV_network)&diff=899232212&oldid=899227465]), plain for everyone to see, and Galassi did nothing to counter that observation or otherwise engage with the criticism. That makes his reverts disruptive, the other side's not so. I also note (again, as a few weeks ago) that Galassi has actually been under a strict revert limitation that includes an extra requirement for him to discuss and wait before every revert he makes. He seems to have routinely disregarded this restriction for years (see [[User talk:Galassi#Revert limitation]] for background). <br/>

- Addendum: Let me also add that, unlike some of my colleagues above, I find R2's behaviour in this dispute faultless. Contrary to a frequently-peddled myth, reverting in and of itself is not necessarily disruptive. In the face of stubborn unreasonableness and failure to engage in discussion, as displayed by Galassi here, reverting is, unfortunately, often unavoidable to protect encyclopedic integrity. Some people don't like to hear that there are such cases, but yes, in some edit-wars the faults are entirely on one side. This is one such case.

- == Requesting a subject-matter ban for user Bacondrum on the Call-out Culture article==
- {{atop|Bacondrum has admitted to making mistakes. I am of the opinion that they should have another chance — I'm a big believer in second chances. They are taking a break from the article.

At any rate, I feel hopeful. [[User:El_C|El_C]] 03:55, 5 June 2019 (UTC)}}
- {{u5|Bacondrum}} has engaged in a lengthy campaign to either delete, or cut down to almost nothing, the article [[Call-out culture]]. I believe Bacondrum’s conduct is edit-warring and advocacy that is inconsistent with making a neutral point of view encyclopedia. (I note that Bacondrum also focuses on the [[Virtue signaling]] article in a similar way, engaging in what appears to be agenda-driven tendentious editing.) Examples of editors trying to reason with Bacondrum about this, to no avail:
- 
- :* [[Special:Diff/899465320]]: My response to Bacondrum when they removed a citation to Dr. Lisa Nakamura, a University of Michigan professor and authoritative source on callout culture.
- :* [[Special:Diff/899431117]]: Here I am telling Bacondrum they have deleted well-sourced text and asking them to take it to talk page. 
- :* [[Special:Diff/897772099]]: Here is editor Psantora warning Bacondrum about edit warring. But if you just look at the history of the article since then, ''it has become almost all Bacondrum'' … removing well-sourced, good-faith contributions despite other editors asking Bacondrum to get consensus first.
- :*Here is a [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Call-out_culture#NO_Op-eds_or_other_opinions,_fashion_editors,_film_directors_and_students,_fiction_writers,_or_academics_in_completely_unrelated_fields section of the article’s Talk page] where other editors are taking issue with Bacondrum’s idiosyncratic view of NPOV on Wikipedia.
- Large sections of the talk page  are essentially Bacondrum decreeing unilaterally that something should happen, and other editors not agreeing with Bacondrum’s decree. Bacondrum is apparently not interested in consensus, but seems to just want to prevail despite opposition from other editors and lack of consensus.
- 
- Bacondrum further '''removes quoted authoritative statements from experts on the topic''', such as Lisa Nakamura of the University of Michigan, despite Bacondrum frequently complaining that the people being cited are not authorities or not experts on the topic. This is disruptive and shows bad faith and agenda-driven tendentious editing.
- :[[Special:Diff/899463750]]
- 
- Bacondrum '''makes demeaning comments against other editors''', such as [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Call-out_culture&diff=prev&oldid=899435024 this comment on the Talk page] calling certain edits “pathetic” and saying students “stoned out of their minds” would know not to cite a certain source. Bacondrum also multiple times, in Edit Summaries, exclaims "FFS!" [for f***'s sake] in frustration at other editors. This is not collegial or collaborative.
- 
- Bacondrum persists in '''edit warring''' that has already resulted in him having a 36 hour block, and a one-week block.

- In my defense, I would like to point out that the original article broke numerous guidelines, it was hard to understand and relied almost entirely on op-eds, it was a real mess and strongly biased, it read like a personal opinion or an essay. I believe the article is significantly improved. None of my edits were done in bad faith or would constitute vandalism. I believe DeRossitt is insisting on his or her preferred version and now reverts any and every effort i make to improve the article. refuses to allow improvements and insists on retaining content that is not verifiable and is not properly cited (relies on primary sources) and poorly worded. In particular the section on call-out culture was hard to make any sense of. I've acted in good faith, yes I was edit warring at one stage, I did not contest the block I received and I've learnt my lesson, surely I'm allowed to try and improve a poorly cited and worded article.
- 
- Look at the entire history of the page and you'll see that a number of editors have been pushing a particular view of the subject. I have simply been trying to improve the article and I believe I have improved it significantly.

At one point Bacondrum apparently edited the article from 57k bytes down to about 2.3k[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Call-out_culture&diff=896964196&oldid=896958596].  I looked at the 57k version and while there was a passage here or there that I could take issue with, it mostly was informative and well-cited, giving plenty of material to digest or research further, which as a reader is the main thing that I want from Wikipedia articles.  Bacondrum also proposed deleting the article after chopping it to 2.7k,[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Call-out_culture&diff=896964196&oldid=896958596] ''(added:)'' and then AfD'd it[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Call-out_culture_(2nd_nomination)] (closed as "keep").  So I'm unimpressed with Bacondrum's wikilawyering, and on the talk page it does look to me like Bacondrum is trying to WP:OWN the article.  Bacondrum was blocked for 3RR on May 19 but continues after the block to revert furiously, for example 7 reverts on May 30.[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Call-out_culture&diff=899429502&oldid=898793832][https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Call-out_culture&diff=899429643&oldid=899429502][https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Call-out_culture&diff=899429916&oldid=899429643][https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Call-out_culture&diff=899430173&oldid=899430094][https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Call-out_culture&diff=899448934&oldid=899431117][https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Call-out_culture&diff=899462618&oldid=899448934][https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Call-out_culture&diff=899463750&oldid=899462987]  Not going to get into the policy stuff for now but I think the article would be better off if Bacondrum left it alone for a while.

- :::: "you don't get to unilaterally decide whether the article should cite op-eds" You are 100% correct, the guidelines decide: "Editorial commentary, analysis and opinion pieces, whether written by the editors of the publication (editorials) or outside authors (op-eds) are reliable primary sources for statements attributed to that editor or author, but are rarely reliable for statements of fact. Human interest reporting is generally not as reliable as news reporting, and may not be subject to the same rigorous standards of fact-checking and accuracy (see junk food news)." I understand if you've never attended university that op-eds may seem like reliable sources, but they are not, they are opinion. You wouldn't get past first year if you cited essays with op-eds.

The length of the article depends on verifiable encyclopedic content, not a desire to have a lengthy article, in-fact I'd suggest that a term having that much content is indicative of tendentious editing, it's not the history of WW2, it's a term.

- :*Op-eds and opinion pieces aren't ''useless'', sure, but they're very easy to misuse.  It's difficult to evaluate [[WP:DUE]] weight from just opinion pieces, and very easy for an article to end up in a state where it either has major [[WP:POV]] issues due to a disproportionate abundance of opinion pieces representing a single position, or an article that turns into confusing back-and-forth between editors, who drop opinion pieces in by proxy in a way that isn't very useful for readers.  In general, I'd say that anything cited ''solely'' to opinion pieces ought to be confined to a section devoted to them, which should be kept to a relatively small proportion of the article; broad opinions are better represented by secondary non-opinion sources covering those opinions, preferably neutral ones, since that makes it easier to illustrate due weight and to balance opinions properly.  I would therefore share Bacondrum's concern with any article that seems to rely too heavily on opinion pieces.  Always remember that the purpose of using an opinion piece is to say "some people take this general position", not to present every argument for that position by proxy - an article should never attempt to ''convince'' a user, and when we're trying to convey anything to them except "some people hold opinion X", we should try to rely on sources that can be used for statements of fact, not opinion pieces.  I also feel it's worth toning down and trimming opinion pieces that seem collectively seem structured, within the article, to 'convince' the user - again, the purpose is "opinion X exists", not "here is why you should believe X", so opinion pieces should be covered in a neutral way with an eye towards minimizing their flash or impact.  I ''especially'' think flashy, fiery quotes should be removed on sight, replaced with more neutral language stating someone's ultimate belief.  And I would generally avoid leaning on "general" opinion writers - I don't see any value to dropping David Brooks' opinion into every article on cultural issues, for instance.  He's not an expert, so who cares what he thinks? --[[User:Aquillion|Aquillion]] ([[User talk:Aquillion|talk]]) 01:32, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

It told me what the issue was (I had already somewhat heard of it so I got the idea quickly) and then gave a big pile of "here is what is being said about it and here is who is saying it", which as I see it is perfectly fine. It means that in some science fiction scenario where I actually wanted to research call-out culture in detail, I now know where to start.  So I'm thankful all the cites are there.  I'm an adult and I don't feel like I need Bacondrum's services to shield my sensitive eyes from the words of big bad meanies like David Brooks or those who disagree with him.  I'd rather that Wikipedia just give me the info and then stay out of the way.<p>Bacondrum, re ''when I was at university this stuff would get you a fail'': Wikipedia articles are not university theses; they are reference works.  Their goals are completely different.  If a university faculty member asked a librarian or grad student to round up published writings on call-out culture and got back a citation list like the one in the 57k article, I think they'd be satisfied, while they'd be unsatisfied with the 2.3k version.  That is the standard I would go by.  Our role as encyclopedia editors is closer to that of librarians than of thesis writers.  It doesn't matter if an article fails as a term paper as long as it succeeds as a reference work.  I hope that helps.

- *'''Endorse topic ban''' - As one of the "others" that [[User:Bacondrum|Bacondrum]] refers to above who is now working on the article, let me state that my interactions with [[User:Bacondrum|Bacondrum]] have been almost universally unpleasant, tendentious, and not conducive to productive editing. I became involved in the article when I reviewed it for [[Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Call-out culture (2nd nomination)|AFD]]. As you can see references supporting the notability of the article were raised early in the AFD but [[User:Bacondrum|Bacondrum]], even though they recognised that the references supported notability, did not withdraw their nomination but instead to keep insisting that other editors improve the article (not an AFD requirement) and accusing me of being "here pushing the term". [[Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Outrage porn|In another AFD raised at the same time they did exactly the same thing]] - even though they now recognise that the article is likely notable, they haven't withdrawn their nom. They engage in ultimatum-setting, demand-making, and insult-making ("back to school", "Dick Cheney, is that you?", "first year arts students stoned out of their minds"). Of course a voluntary topic ban might suffice - but [[User:Bacondrum|Bacondrum]] has only agreed thus far not to '''add''' anything further to the article, when their deletions are often just as problematic.

- :::::I've tried to stay out of the discussion today and let it run its course, as I've said my piece. But after Bacondrum's latest siege on this discussion, I'd like to point out a few things:
- :::::* Look at the combative tone Bacondrum takes in this discussion, the relentless way of laying siege to the discussion and trying to control it. You are seeing here a manifestation of the interaction style that caused this ANI in the first place. A persistent failure to grasp their errors that MANY EDITORS are pointing out, their misrepresentation of Wikipedia policy, their refusal to answer when asked about incidents that appear to be examples of the conduct complained of (see, in the discussion just above this, Bacondrum says they're not going to "justify on request" their edits that starship.paint inquired about -- edits that, as starship.paint clearly recognizes, are part of Bacondrum's pattern of destructive behavior on Wikipedia.
- :::::* Bacondrum has persistently misrepresented Wikipedia policy, and keeps saying I canvassed and should be sanctioned for that. I notified the top ten editors of the Call-out Culture article by number of edits. Here, at the policy page [[Wikipedia:Canvassing#Appropriate_notification|Wikipedia:Canvassing - Appropriate Notification]], it is explicitly stated that what I did is an example of appropriate notification. It says that appropriate notification is to place a neutral message "On the user talk pages of concerned editors. Examples include: * Editors who have made substantial edits to the topic or article ..." I left a neutral message. But Bacondrum, probably a dozen times, keeps hammering, despite Wikipedia policy, that I "canvassed," bullied, harassed. This is patent dishonesty, and Bacondrum should produce examples of me harassing and bullying. No examples exist. If Bacondrum's conduct is not checked by sanctions, they will continue to be a destructive, alienating editor who drives other editors away from pages.

- * '''Endorse sitewide 0RR restriction, neutral on topic ban''' I haven't seen mention of bad ''additions'' Bacondrum has made to these articles, just bad reversions.  But the reversions seem to cross topics, so topic ban by itself will just move the problem elsewhere.  Some of this comes from Bacondrum being a relatively new editor who started out and has stayed in controversial topics, that take considerable experience to edit.  Other parts come from taking the policy docs too literally (a typical newbie error), and more worryingly a seeming lack of self-awareness (e.g. not seeing any problems with making 7 reverts in 1 day after already having been blocked for 3RR).  If 0RR restriction seems too strict then go for 1RR but really, 0RR should work fine.  It would still be ok for Bacondrum to propose reversions on talk pages, up to 3 per day.  I'd suggest Bacondrum focus for a while on less controversial topics, but won't propose a formal restriction for now.

We would not limit the "critical response" section of [[Avengers: Endgame]] to citing highbrow academic film theorists.  If they have something to say we'd use it, but we'd use mostly newspaper and other mainstream reviews.  This is similar.

The page is significantly improved and now others who arn't involved in this dispute are making quality edits, I'm more than happy to leave it, I've played my part in improving the article - that being said the harassing behavior of DeRossitt, as seen in the canvassing,  also calls for sanctions.

Bacondrum was actually blocked 3 times (most recently for 3RR on May 19)[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log&page=User%3ABacondrum] but continued to edit war (reverting 7 times on the callout culture article on May 30 alone, diffs in above thread), and their level of insults and obnoxiousness in the above thread and in edit summaries is obvious.  I haven't checked the claim about not re-reverting unreversions made by others.  I don't have a strong sense of whether Bacondrum's editing of that article was biased towards a particular POV, but I do find it obvious that it was highly disruptive.  If that is what Bacondrum considers to be good editing style, a topic ban probably won't help, since there are plenty of other topics available in which to do the same thing.

- == Page move topic ban for Ortizesp ==
- 
- This issue was previously raised at ANI [[Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/IncidentArchive1010#Page move topic ban for Ortizesp|here]] on 10 May 2019 but it was archived with no action taken.
- 
- Since that discussion, further editors have raised issues with page moves, including {{ping|MYS77}} [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk%3AOrtizesp&type=revision&diff=897512480&oldid=897240961 here]. Ortizesp said he would start using RM [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Ortizesp&diff=next&oldid=897512480 here], but he hasn't, and MYS77 had to raise the issue again with him [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Ortizesp&diff=next&oldid=897513139 here]. Today I have had to revert another undiscussed page move involving the [[Rubén García Rey]] article.
- 
- Based on the above, given the number of editors who have raised concerns about/reverted his page moves, and given the number of broken promises to stop, it is clear that Ortizesp lacks the competence to make page moves. As such, we need an indefinite topic ban from making ''any'' undiscussed page moves, and he can only nominate using [[WP:RM]].

- :I simply disagree that moving [[Rubén García Rey]] needed nomination from [[WP:RM]]. Rubén García Rey is simply not his common name, and all external links and references state that. Most of my moves follow this logic, and i believe are valid. Obviously you and MYS77 disagree with my moves, but they are generally uncontroversial. I haven't used [[WP:RM]] because I'm leaving those pages for later, for actual controversial moves.

- == Request an immediate indefinite IBAN of Hijiri 88 ==
- 
- I would like to get some help from the community and or administrators to get an IBAN in place for Hijiri 88. Hijiri has been following me, and harassing me, accusing me of copyright violations and now accuses me of racism. I do not follow this editor to harass - or stalk the editor’s articles and to vote against the editor's positions. I follow the editor only to defend myself. I do not revert the editors edits. I do not speak to the editor in my afd ivotes or comments, or in my edit summaries. This is a big encyclopedia  - yet this editor cannot seem to resist following me, and stepping on my work here and now is casting [[WP:ASPERSIONS]] by calling me a racist to other users. Last week I asked for a [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Administrators%27_noticeboard/IncidentArchive1010#User:Hijiri88_repeated_harassment_and_hounding block or IBAN]. Then Hijiri 88 said they were going offline and made some ridiculous comments [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Hijiri88&oldid=899757170 about me on their talk page] about me being a stalker (this is also [[WP:ASPERSIONS]]). The ANI I opened was closed with no result and after just two days Hijiri 88 came emboldened to immediately follow my edits and make claims about me being a racist. I want to apply for an '''immediate IBAN'''. 
- 
- If I were able to deal with the editor Hijiri's bullying and unfounded accusations alone I would not bring it here to the community. As I pointed out in the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Administrators%27_noticeboard/IncidentArchive1010#User:Hijiri88_repeated_harassment_and_hounding last ANI I filed]- Hijiri has a long history of this behavior.

He made a single bad-faith feint at "friendship" on my talk page before going right back to harassing me. He then opened an ANI thread and ''should have'' been hit with a boomerang for his harassment and personal attacks against me and other editors, but these were ignored because the copyvio (which was already at CCI and so, IMO, didn't need an ANI discussion) was taken as being more serious. After the ANI thread was closed and archived, he immediately went straight back to harassment and personal attacks (not just at me but also at other editors ''at the AFDs you link to'' -- at the 6.3 one he took a needless shot at Banner who had already withdrawn their nomination, and at the Gould one he repeatedly made bad-faith canvassing accusations and insinuated that Bearcat was a serial deletionist who was misrepresenting policy).

I have no intention of arguing with you that I am in the right on the 6.3 article; that's for the AFD closer to decide, and I frankly don't care all that much one way or the other.

- :::::The close, as clearly indicated by the diff above, was "Stop doing that", which was directed at Lubbad, in reference to the blatant personal attack; it probably could have gone further and explicitly said something like "stop baiting Hijiri, and definitely don't stick a bunch of random jabs against the country he chooses to call home on your user page". Yeah, the demand that I no longer bring to ANI harassment and personal attacks like the one Lubbad made in mid-May, and like the ones he's been making in the past few days, did discourage me from opening more ANI threads about, for instance, the bizarre Pearl Harbor references; but it doesn't discount the fact that Lubbad was told to stop harassing me ''and he did not''. Anyway, in the past year I think I've filed a total of three ANI reports on issues involving me (not including random trolls/socks/whatever I noticed and thought ANI was the best way to handle it) so one editor's opinion that I repeatedly bring every little "petty" dispute to ANI is just simply wrong on its face.

Regarding my own editing here on WP, there is no plagiarism... some accidental paraphrasing which has already been fixed. Hijiri88 has accused many editors of copyright violations as I pointed out in the last ANI - it is a useful weapon. None of this gives Hijiri88 the right to call me a racist. My request is for the community or administrators to see that this editor harasses me and then cries victim. In ANI last week Hijiri88 [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Simon_Petr%C3%A9n&diff=prev&oldid=899615711 followed and reverted] user eggroll97 after a vote in support of my request, and now Hijiri88 has [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk%3AKingerikthesecond&type=revision&diff=900270117&oldid=900270092 petitioned user kingerikthesecond] to change their vote. I am asking the community for protection. Calling me a racist without proof should be reason enough to enforce an IBAN.

- *'''A 2 way IBAN will not hurt anybody'''. No harm comes to Wikipedia from a two way IBAN. For my part I do not edit where Hijiri88 edits and I do not interact with the editor in any way. Regarding Hijiri88's claims that I am a copyright violator. The accusation was made by Hijiri88, and now it has stuck to me like glue. Editors have gone through all of my started articles and major contributions - as any other editor is welcome to do. The WP:following behavior started long before Hijiri88's claims of copyright violations. The WP:following by Hijiri88 began when I started helping the Article rescue Squad. As I pointed out in my only other request for help on this forum: Hijiri88 began following me and calling me out in comments, and edits and edit summaries, as soon as I began working with ARS. I ignored the editor until finally Hijiri88 was tendentious on a deletion review - I responded to the editor on the deletion review. Then Hijiri88 came to my talk page to extend their comments, and at that point (on my own talk page) I told Hijiri88 to "get out of the basement and take a walk". These were my first ever words to Hijiri88 after ignoring the editors tendentious editing, commenting and following. Hijiri88 took me to ANI for the comments on my talk page, and the item was speedy closed. Hijiri88 has had issues with other users on Article Rescue Squad. Most recently ARS contributor Dream Focus was granted an IBAN with this editor for the same reasons that I am asking for an IBAN: Hijiri88 accused Dream Focus of Copyvio and harassed and followed Dream focus. I became a target of Hijiri88 at the point that I started on Article Rescue Squad. In conclusion, like all of you here, I do not want to be harassed or to be accused of racism. I do not want to spend my time in here when I could be editing. I do not want to waste time on negativity. I want Hijiri88 to leave me alone, and for my part I will leave Hijiri88 alone.

Hijiri does seem to have [[WP:FOLLOWING|followed]] Lubbad to the specific AfDs mentioned, given that all !votes were after Lubbad's and Hijiri did not visit any other AfDs on the day in question. But then again, the comment about Pearl Harbour on Lubbad's homepage seems to have been reasonably clearly targeted at Hijiri. These two just need to keep out of each other's way. &nbsp;&mdash;&nbsp;[[User:Amakuru|Amakuru]] ([[User talk:Amakuru|talk]]) 08:49, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
- *'''Support 2 way IBAN''' This has been going on for almost a month now, with one or the other filing ANI's. In all fairness whilst (as far as I know) the initial attack was aimed at  Hijiri88 it's also clear they have no backed of either. No harm can come from a 2 way (if wither user genuinely is not going to poke the other), and achieved the aim (I would hope) of ramping down the drama.[[User:Slatersteven|Slatersteven]] ([[User talk:Slatersteven|talk]]) 12:30, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
- ===Proposal 1:  One-Way IBAN===
- Something needs to be done, and it is [[User:Lubbad85]] who is causing the disruption.  
- 
- I propose, as the first, and what I recommend, alternative, which is a one-way [[WP:IBAN|interaction ban]] '''without''' the usual exceptions, so that [[User:Lubbad85]] is absolutely banned from interacting or commenting on [[User:Hijiri88]].  This will allow Lubbad85 to continue editing as long as they stay clear of Hijiri88 and recognize that Hijiri88 and other editors take copyright seriously.

- *'''I do not communicate with Hijiri88'''. Not in my edits, not in edit summaries, not on afds, not on any talk pages, I do not talk with other users about Hijiri88. So a one way ban against me seems like an inappropriate application of IBAN. It is me who asks for an IBAN because the user speaks to me in all of those ways, and now accuses me of racism to others and in public. I do not have a long history here on WP, however my history does not show me to be an editor who requires IBAN - not in this case, nor any other. I ask the administrators to '''close these two additional proposals''' and respond to my proposal regarding protection from Hijiri88's racism accusations <small><span style="border:1px solid blue;padding:1px;">[[User:Lubbad85|<span style="color:white;background:red;font-family:sans-serif;">''' Lubbad85 '''</span>]]</span></small>([[User talk:Lubbad85|<b style="color:#060">☎</b>]]) 17:43, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
- **{{nacc}} IBANS include opening ANI threads, and frankly we're all sick of the endless threads on Hijiri you keep starting. It also probably isn't the wisest idea to try to shut down proposals on a boomerang, but there's no explicit rule against it, so just know that ANI is a two-way street- you opening this thread opens you wide to criticism of your own behavior as well as Hijiri's.

- *'''Oppose''' a no-exceptions IBAN; as worded, Lubbad85 wouldn't be able to respond if Hijiri88 were to request a [[WP:CCI]], or nominate an article on which they've worked for deletion. I would have absolutely no issue with a broad "any more shit from you and you're no longer welcome" formal final warning; [[WP:AGF|Assuming good faith]] is a fine policy, but it doesn't mean the rest of us should be expected to clean up messes indefinitely once it's been explained that something isn't acceptable.&nbsp;&#8209;&nbsp;[[User:Iridescent|Iridescent]] 19:53, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
- *'''Oppose''' I don't want my name to be mentioned on WP:RESTRICT. I have historically had one-way IBANs with two other editors -- one of them ended with a third party repeatedly claiming it was a two-way IBAN, and reading the singular "they" in the ban's wording as meaning an unrelated TBAN also applied to me, and me having to request the ban be lifted for that reason; the other ended with the banned party complaining how unfair the one-way IBAN was and it being upgraded to a two-way IBAN for basically no other reason. Also, IBANning Lubbad would not actually solve the problem (not just copyright, but also the habitual personal attacks and harassment of anyone who disagrees with him -- see what he's been doing to Bearcat on the Gould AFD), and would only make it easier for him to claim I'm "poking the bear" and making unfair actions to which he can't respond by not withdrawing my CCI.

- *'''Oppose''', since the proposal based solely on the interaction between the two. Now there may be other reasons for banning Lubbad (e.g. I am seeing comments in this section alleging any or all of [[WP:CCI]], [[WP:CIR]] and [[WP:NOTHERE]] on their part; but those are topics to be tackled elsewhere, and I am not commenting on them here). But on the interaction itself, IMHO I see two parties who don't get along and seem intent on trying to wind each other up through oblique references on user talk pages and other prickly comments. But not to the point of warranting punitive action. That's why I recommend an IBAN which would ensure they can both continue to contribute without reference to the other, and be quickly blocked if one or other does infringe again. &nbsp;&mdash;&nbsp;[[User:Amakuru|Amakuru]] ([[User talk:Amakuru|talk]]) 15:07, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

- *'''Oppose''' I have never been in trouble on Wikipedia, and I came here because there was not a resolution last week. My perception was that I still had a problem with the other editor following me. The issue I brought to this ANI is an issue between two editors. I came to ANI because it was the only available process, as I knew it. I did not intend to offend anyone here on ANI. I love to contribute to Wikipedia and I only want to be left to do that in peace. I have a long productive history on Wikipedia. This experience however, has been mind numbing and stomach turning for me. Reading through this ANI board, it seems many complaints often wind up with no consensus and a frustrated administrator who has to weed through the threads. 
- :Here are some guarantees regarding my own behavior which I can make going forward:
- :#I will not perpetuate the problems or the controversies submitted on this ANI.  
- :#I will treat ANI regarding the other editor as off limits, My only request is that I am not followed by the other editor. 
- :#I will not respond to the other editor and I will not interact with the other editor.
- :#Assuming for the sake of argument that there were copyright violations in the past: it will not happen in the future.  
- 
- :In conclusion, the goal of ANI should be to solve a problem (and it has for my part). If discipline should be required it should be progressive and corrective, not punitive and destructive. We are all trying to build an encyclopedia together and we should ask how a resolution on ANI will contribute to that mission. I hope to work with you all in the future under better circumstances. 
- :I am interested in fixing the problem, not fixing the blame. To that end: A dual IBAN is acceptable to me because it likely fixes the problem between me and the other editor.

- == Charles01 behaviour ==
- 
- Charles01 condescending and bully-esque attuide towards me
- 
- I'm at a breaking point with Charles01. Since January he has been formally bashing about me for the past few months. He constantly making callous remarks of my editing even though I kept asking him to help me of how to edit collaboratively on around 2-3 occasions which are included in the diffs but comes out nothing but more condescending comments and antagonising. He tend to call my editing "Vauxford Vanity Project" and create made up phrases such as "Vauxfordy". Almost every edit he does he would at least include something personal about me.
- 
- Diffs of cases where he has taken his edits personally over a user rather then on the content:
- 
- Slipping in personal comments of me e.g "Then again, where a picture taken and uploaded and linked by the one and only Vauxford is involved"

- [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Vauxford&diff=899056673&oldid=898757483] [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Vauxford&diff=899168674&oldid=899136484] [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Vauxford&diff=899480719&oldid=899168674]
- 
- The Audi Q3 discussion I find unfair and Charles01 wanted my picture gone because it was taken by me. Despite the fact Alexander-93 who made the talk page discussion does the EXACT same type of editing as I do, yet he does get scruntised and made to feel degraded about themselves as Charles01 and other people does to me. [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Audi_Q3&diff=900302917&oldid=900301339| Hence why I reverted the edit even after a "consensus" was reached] Just to clarify, this wasn't me edit warring or even slow edit warring, at the time I thought the action was justified but after thinking over it a bit more, I felt the purpose was more then a disagreement over a photo replacement. I even added a alterntive photo to try and see if they agree on that because I really disagreed with the picture was being used for that article, but was simply ignored, shortly followed Charles01 added his '''un'''heartfelt message which consisted 20% of why the other photo should be used and 80% saying how How I "constantly create edit wars", how my photos are "mediocre", what I'm doing is just a "personal vanity project", saying I am "damaging Wikipedia" and simply saying how much a disruptive person I am and any photo I proposed on these articles should get voided, [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Audi_Q3&diff=prev&oldid=900302559 simply because they were by me].
- 
- I'm not innocent myself and I did messed up a few times but even after trying to improve my way of editing and seeking consensus with people rather then straight out reverting if someone disagree with my edit. It almost feels like Charles01 is simply talking me down with a chance that I would break down and possibly quit Wikipedia or something even though what I'm doing isn't disruptive and even if it was disruptive I had no awareness it is and formally apologise for it. I'm also not doing this to oust Charles01 in any way, I just believe the way he has been treating and approaching me like this is wrong and no editor whatever position they have on Wikipedia should go through that. --[[User:Vauxford|Vauxford]] ([[User talk:Vauxford|talk]]) 19:07, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
- 
- :'''Comment''': I looked through all of the diffs and I see your frustration with the removal of photos etc. I agree that the editor was terse, however probably annoyed by your failure to get consensus first. My best advice is to get consensus on the talk page. The editor was blunt, but probably not a bully and probably not wrong on the edits. Often editors here (especially on automobile articles) feel like they have to protect every edit and photo on the article. Simply placing a photo without consensus on an auto article will likely always be met with a speedy deletion and a terse remark. I myself have added photos to BMW and to 5 series. The one on BMW was kept the one on 5 series was deleted. I thanked the editor and moved on. So short of it is: get consensus on the talk page before adding anything. I hope that helps. <small><span style="border:1px solid blue;padding:1px;">[[User:Lubbad85|<span style="color:white;background:red;font-family:sans-serif;">''' Lubbad85 '''</span>]]</span></small>([[User talk:Lubbad85|<b style="color:#060">☎</b>]]) 21:27, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
- ::So removing ones photos because they are "Vauxfordy" and calling it a "personal vanity project" and bringing up a person I used to interact in the past almost in every respond isn't condescending? Half the things he ever said when it comes to me (Spanning from about January 2019) is more of how much a burden I am to everyone rather then the images themselves, and when it is the image, he simply call them my "blind spots" or medicare" it getting to the point that I'm the one to blame simply because I did it, if it any one else such as the user who created the Audi Q3 discussion, they wouldn't get this ridicule at all. As I provided on the diffs I did ask at times to cooperate with me so we don't get in to a mess, despite being long paragraphs they get lead to nowhere or he just simply paste the whole lot back onto my talkpage. --[[User:Vauxford|Vauxford]] ([[User talk:Vauxford|talk]]) 22:46, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

- == Nationalism, nationalistic sentiment, lack of neutrality, lack of response ==
- 
- *{{Vandal|Stan Tincon}} utilizes pro-German nationalistic ([[Wikipedia:Nationalist editing]]) sentiment and exaggeration on articles related to [[Poland]] and its history. Disrupts all Polish articles linked to Germany, lots of mistakes and somewhat anti-Polish sentiment which can be clarified by the highly un-neutral and controversial tone when adding irrelevant information on cities or towns that are part of the [[Recovered territories]]. This has been going on for weeks or months perhaps. I posted an answer on the user's talk page, however, it was completely ignored. [[User:Mike Winowicz]] has also noticed this action and also posted a message on Stan Tincon's page but no again no answer was provided. Per [[Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not]], Stan Tincon has misunderstood the meaning of Wikipedia and turned it into a political and controversial tool to misinform users. By adding singular secondary sources, the user exaggerates, blames and adds biased information. Per [[Wikipedia:Neutral point of view]] Stan Tincon has incorporated personal lengthy opinions instead of well-sourced factual sentences. In every single alteration [[Wikipedia:Nationalist editing|nationalist editing]] is clearly present, which suggests that the user's permanent role on Wikipedia is to continue this conduct.

- : I find many of these edits unobjectionable. For example, it is clearly correct to call the territorial changes between Germany and Poland after WWII "annexation" rather than "cession" (since Germany wasn't in any position to voluntarily "cede" anything at that point); it's also correct to not call people "settlers" after they and their ancestors had lived in a certain place for several centuries (as opposed to a new population group coming in after them). These are legitimate content disagreements, if anything. On the other hand, several of the additions have a [[WP:COATRACK]] tone to them, and insisting on the term "annexation" for the Polish-German territory shifts while at the same time changing "annexed" to "reattached" for the Polish-Soviet shifts reeks of tendentiousness. Also, for a newish contributor with a couple hundred edits to be focussing entirely on edits of this kind is something of a warning sign, so I do agree he needs to be advised to dial it down.

[[User:Wicka wicka]] is on the ''Support'' side of the discussion, but is making [[WP:PA|personal attacks]] at other editors who are on the ''Oppose'' side, regularly calling them trolls
- 
- *As an example, [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Dean_Ambrose&diff=prev&oldid=899519531] Claims than an ''oppose'' vote was "CLEARLY written by a WWE fan who doesn't want to acknowledge the world of wrestling outside of WWE." Doubles down on said stance [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Dean_Ambrose&diff=prev&oldid=900100808] here.
- *[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Dean_Ambrose&diff=prev&oldid=900100949] Attacks Wikipedia in general, stating "Unfortunately the whole point of wiki policy is to create a framework for ignoring common sense."
- *[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Dean_Ambrose&diff=prev&oldid=900121138] "Hey look! Two more comments that are clearly WWE fans trying to turn this into an us vs them situation." One of these comments referred to is mine, where I stated "we all want it to happen," referring to AEW's potential to be as big as WWE. Hardly a comment a WWE fanboy would make. I asked for a retraction and apology for this comment and none has been provided as of writing.
- *[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Dean_Ambrose&diff=prev&oldid=900153974] "Both of you are lazy concern trolls. Grow up." Again, directed at me and another editor.
- *After being warned on his talk page for the above by a fourth editor, [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Wicka_wicka&diff=prev&oldid=900249067] " Please do not waste your time here defending trolls. No one needs that."
- *[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Dean_Ambrose&diff=prev&oldid=900249501] Doubles down on calling the third editor a "Troll" and "A bad faith editor"
- *After ALL of this [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Dean_Ambrose&diff=prev&oldid=900252009] "And no, the page does not need to be renamed immediately. It's important to get the name right but [[Jon Moxley]] still redirects here. There's no problem with leaving it as it is for now." So he was calling us trolls, for a discussion that he himself admits is not needed? Cool!
- *On talk page again: [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Wicka_wicka&diff=prev&oldid=900302648] "If you're not able to see a troll for what they are then you need not be a part of this discussion."

- I'm going to say my piece and leave it at this. Please ping me if you really need me but honestly I don't care to be involved in this discussion. The admins gotta do what they gotta do and I respect that.
- 
- The purpose of being a troll is to engender an emotional response from the person you're trolling, usually anger or frustration. On Wikipedia trolling is used to force a person you disagree with to express those emotions and thus undermine their own stance. The troll then feigns politeness or civility and often "wins" the debate by default, especially if they're so successful that the person they're trolling ends up being blocked. This problem is compounded by the assumption of good faith, which sounds neat on paper but frequently blinds editors and administrators to the fact that many editors are operating in bad faith - I have noticed on several occasions that administrators seem unable or unwilling to punish editors who are very obviously trolling.
- 
- As I said before, the admins gotta do what they gotta do and I respect that. I can't force them to see that an editor is trolling if they can't see it for themselves. But I also gotta do what I gotta do, and I'm never going to stop calling out trolls when I see them, because it's simply the right thing to do.

- 
- What an odd turn of events since I've left for work this morning. Wicka sounded really angry when I saw a lot of anonymous edits/new accounts stemming from a Reddit post to influence the discussion on changing the article title. [https://www.reddit.com/r/SquaredCircle/comments/bv4i9d/theres_a_debate_going_on_wikipedia_about_whether/ Here is the Reddit post in question]. Somehow pointing out that wrestling fans were storming the page because they like AEW and dislike WWE made me a troll/WWE fan/whatever *shrug* I don't particularly care that he called me a troll (since I've been called a lot worse on Wikipedia). I just wanted the article to actually follow traditional naming conventions and tried to explain how naming conventions were normally determined. Anyways, I've said basically all I wanted to say there by now three times over. I just ask that a small group of uninvolved administrators determine consensus/lack of consensus since there was a lot of discussion and a few suspect accounts used to manipulate consensus probably. — [[User:Moe Epsilon|<span style="color:royalblue; font-family: Segoe Script">Moe</span>]] [[User talk:Moe Epsilon|<span style="color:royalblue; font-family: Segoe Script">Epsilon</span>]] 18:10, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

- :::[[User:Forest90|Forest90]] - The reason that [[User:Alex-h|Alex-h]] created this discussion here about your edits to [[Operation Forty Stars]] is because the references cited in the article do not match what you're repeatedly changing the content to state. This is problematic, as your changes not only contradict the references that are already cited in the article, but your edits don't cite any references or sources at all to support your changes. Doing this repeatedly is [[WP:DE|disruptive]], and if done repeatedly despite numerous warnings and requests asking you to stop - can lead to administrative action (usually [[WP:BLOCK|blocks]]). Please [[WP:AGF|assume good faith]] and don't jump to believing that Alex-h is doing this to be personal or to give you a hard time (unless you have diffs to show concrete evidence of this). Instead, you should continue to discuss the content-related matter with Alex-h on the article's talk page [[WP:DR|properly]] and [[WP:CIV|respectfully]], and come to an agreement.

Is it usual? he didn't talk to me about article changes and suddenly comes here and open a subject to open a fight against me... Is really normal Wikipedia user act?!!! Because I have never seen a user like Alex-h. All his/her work against me is an emotional response, this user, if you go and see Article history, never participated in discussions or helped to improve the Article or something else, but he/she had a strong resume in many article and places in Wikipedia for fighting against another writer or editor or user. I hope you understand me, I tried to expand that Article and somebody frequently changing my work. First I think they tried to change facts, but after opening a new subject in Article talk page, I found that I was wrong and I changed my mind. But it's very weird that a outside user, without any comment in main subject, open a subject against me here. I hope the Administer group, see the Alex-h act as a vandal and punish him/her. I changed my viewpoint about '''Baathist''' and '''Iraqi army''' as the sources said (I added that sources and expanded the article), but I can't understand Alex-h role in this subject.

It's only a mistake, when an user didn't say why deleting my work, I will revert it (because I don't know why he/she did that and I consider it as vandal), but many of my mistake or other user mistake solved after they discussed about that, as you can see I didn't revert the Article word to '''Baathist''' after had heard the other user (who frequently deleted my work and didn't explain why) reasons. But I beg you, saw the Article history, please search about the last subject that Alex-h opened against me here, he never discussed me or speak out about that with me. He/She comes here and open a subject against me to persuade you to act against me or block me. I don't know, but it's obvious vandal against another user.

- Note: this was originally reported on [[WP:CCLEAN]].
- 
- On and off since 2017, [[User talk:Pr12402|Pr12402]] has been citation bombing ([[WP:REFBOMB]]) a handful of articles to a height of absurdity I've never seen. Single sentences have up to 30 citations apiece, and [[Hair Peace Salon|this article]] about a Belarusian band has 327 citations, almost 50 more than the article on the [[American Civil War]]. It's almost surreal how bloated the citations in these articles are. See also: [[Cyruĺnia Svietu]]; [[Gentleman (Hair Peace Salon album)]]; [[Open Space (band)]]; [[Bristeil]]; [[beZ bileta]]. I was going to speak to this user myself, but I feel something like this warrants an intervention from an administrator. <b>[[User:TheTechnician27|<span style="color: #00a9ff"><i>TheTechnician27</i></span>]]</b> [[User talk:TheTechnician27|<span style="color: blue">(Talk page)</span>]] 07:53, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

+ ::::::::::::"If you want to continue arguing that "Xe" is always civil to use": strawman argument. I have never argued that "xe is always civil to use". On the contrary, I have made statements like "If this was the intention, then it was insulting you, mocking you, and can be argued that it mocked your gender. That still doesn't mean that it "misgendered" you." right above. I am not going to spend time defending a position I never argued in the first place. Look at it from a different perspective: if I were to call an African-American "white", I would be mis-racing them (comparable to misgendering). If I were to call them "nigger", I would not been "mis-racing" them, but I would be extremely insulting anyway and would deserve an instant block for personal attacks. Similarly, arguing that "xe" is not misgendering you doesn't mean that it is always acceptable or civil to use (although I haven't seen any evidence that it carries the negative connotation the N word has). Whether it is civil to use depends on the context and the intention, but it is not ''inherently'' uncivil, and it is not misgendering when used in lieu of another genderneutral pronoun, ''even if you prefer that other pronoun''.

+ Fuck ArbCom which doesn't even understand their own messages and again give themselves powers they don't have. First it was deletions, then it was mandatory 2FA, inbetween it is loads of evidence of utter incompetence in many of its members (witness the statement by AGK above, but also some of the comments at e.g. the Rama case request). Just crawl into a corner and shut up until the community asks you to do something within your remit, but don't try to rule enwiki as if you have the right and the competence to do so. Or collectively resign. But don't give us any more of this bullshit. [[User:Fram|Fram]] ([[User talk:Fram|talk]]) 07:39, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
