Calvin discovers WikipediaEdit
Duplicate references at Stuck (unit)Edit
Hello! You reverted my removal of two duplicates (essentially) of the Cardarelli reference for this article. Note that the Jerrard book is a new edition (the original was in the 1960s), with a copy-paste of the same information from the Cardarelli; both books are published by Springer, who thus own the copyright to this scrap of text. The Gyllenbok book is a newer book published (ultimately) by Springer, which seems to have copied, but misread the Cardarelli entry (which reads "Stuck (hock)"). Gyllenbok, who just like Cardarelli is not a native speaker of English, has assumed that "hock" is another way of saying "stuck", because he doesn't realise it's a curious English word for German white wine. So neither reference is independent, and Gyllenbok is actually worse. Can you explain how it can help to have three copies of essentially the same snippet? Thanks.

- I understand your concern.
- Please understand mine.
- There are different sources from different authors that say the same thing. Inferentially, it suggests that each of them deemed the assertion to be factually correct.
- We are concerned wsith WPzVerifiability not WP:Truth.
- Further, we are going through an AFD process where some editors, maybe even you, suggest that it is not verified, and not WP:Notable. And the argument will then follow that there are no sources and not references. And of course, since you removed them that would be correct. You have deliberately ut the rticle into a failspin and made a Self fulfilling prophecy. I will put this all on the article's talk page, as that is where it should be aired. 7&6=thirteen (☎) 14:45, 30 May 2019 (UTC)

Blatant violation of WP:CANVASSEdit
These two edits  and  indisputably violate WP:CANVASS. Not only were they made to a partisan audience, but they are not the least bit neutrally worded. I am requesting that you delete them. There is already a neutrally worded tag at the top of the page, so this was not necessary or appropriate and does not help to further any type of civil conversation.--Rusf10 (talk) 02:13, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
- Rusf10 You are wrong. You are vindictive. You are displaying your bias openly. You are in fact a deleetionist provacateur. And the merits speak for themselves. 7&6=thirteen (☎) 02:30, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
- If a Wikiproject is up for deletion, then the members of that Wikiproject should be told. No canvassing there. Dream Focus 04:01, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
- Obviously with your attitude, we are not going to resolve this here. I brought it to ANI--Rusf10 (talk) 04:18, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
