- It's clean-up duty, mopping up after the dishonest, incompetent, and fanatical. Can't imagine why you'd have a problem with that.
Some ground rules before you leave a message
- I am not an admin. I did not delete your page or article, nor did I block you. I may have, at the very most, suggested or urged deletion of pages or articles but I have no power or ability to do so on my own. I'm just an editor.
- This also means, of course, I cannot undelete your page/article, nor unblock you. I can, however, offer you a cookie.
- If you are here to make an argument dependent on arcane or convoluted interpretations of Wikipedia guidelines or rules, note that Wikipedia is not game of nomic nor a court of law. Adherence to common sense and rational argument trumps ruleslawyering, as far as I'm concerned. I've been there, done that, got the t-shirt, thankyouverymuch.
- There is no Rule 4.
- Don't post when drunk. Seriously.
- All communication sent via the "E-mail this user" link is considered public, at my discretion. Reasonable requests for confidentiality will be honored, but the whole "e-mail is sacrosanct and private" argument I do not buy for one solitary second. Do not expect to use that argument as an all-purpose shield.
- Do not assume I'm stupid, especially when arguing for something obviously untrue. I do not respond well to having my intelligence insulted.
- Don't lie to me like I'm Montel Williams. Do I look like Montel Williams? Do I? NO? Then don't lie to me like I'm Montel Williams.
- Especially bogus, hostile, and/or trolling remarks are subject to disemvoweling.
- Please post at the bottom of the page and "sign" your posts using the squiggly things (--~~~~).
- Please extinguish all cigarettes, as this is a No Smoking page.
- Thank you. -- The Management.
Posting further gibes at him is disruptive. The dispute had been dealt with and is over, and you need to move on too. So stop it and leave him alone. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 10:28, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
- Don't say you weren't warned. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 14:59, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
- Reverting the comment (the "trolling") that was left over from the dispute was fine, but the dispute had already been closed after that, he had been warned about his behaviour, and he had moved on (and possibly left Wikipedia altogether). Heading over to his talk page two days later, trying to start the fight up again, and escalating the aggression with personal insults was absolutely not acceptable. We're supposed to be building an encyclopedia here, not fighting petty schoolboy battles, remember? Anyway, you know how to request unblock if you wish, but I would oppose unblocking you until you have regained a sense of perspective and agree to stop with your escalating anger and aggression.

- I see that you have also been grossly uncivil with another editor recently...
- "You are incompetent or dishonest, neither of which is my requirement to fix for you"
- "Spare me the unctuous ass-covering. Your comment had fuck-all to do with anything I wrote, at all -- the word "redaction" should be a clue -- so either you were unable to do something as simple as read the edit history properly or you were attempting to obscure the issue. If you think this gives you some sort of moral high ground, you're sadly mistaken. No, did you have a comment on what I ACTUALLY wrote, or did you want to blow more smoke?"

- No matter what the content dispute, those are are all examples of unacceptable incivility and personal attacks. I don't know why you are acting so aggressively these days, but it has to stop. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 15:52, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
Hello, I wanted to let you know that it is common practice to state the legal company name in the article, despite it being a common name or not. Common name is used for titles, not the start of a heading. You can refer to other company articles such as Microsoft, Facebook and Amazon (company). Cheers. –Wefk423 (talk) 12:59, 7 May 2019 (UTC)
- Looking back on some more of your recent edit summaries, I see escalating aggression, including sarcasm, "WTF", general snark, before reaching the level of outright personal insult. You really need to learn when to stop and step back. If you're in a bad mood, feeling frustrated, or whatever, the best thing to do is stop editing Wikipedia for a while. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 07:44, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
@Boing! said Zebedee: And you need to grow up, Sheriff Respect-Mah-Authoritah. A bad block, of course, but that's a typical overreaction from you. Maybe you should try paying occasional attention to things that are actually happening instead of running interference for bad editors. --Calton | Talk 09:47, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
Stop reverting editsEdit
Your recent editing history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war; that means that you are repeatedly changing content back to how you think it should be, when you have seen that other editors disagree. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See the bold, revert, discuss cycle for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.
Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. - I wont hestitate to request for an administrator's attention if you decide to continue, you seem to have a colourful history in reverting edits and being disruptive. I suggest you stop being aggressive. The talk page exists for a reason. Ineedtostopforgetting (talk) 09:44, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
- (passer-by) @Sourcerery It's because the copyright rules are tightened in wake of Articles 11 and 13 of the European new copyright legislation. Also since there is an ongoing "constitutional crisis" caused by a WMF ban you have to be extra careful these days. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 19:10, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
