Steve Sailer isn't a "white nationalist"Edit

I've been reading Steve's blog for nearly 3 years now, and not once has he ever said anything that borders on white nationalism. He even had a debate with Jared Taylor, an actual white nationalist, in 2005, where he clearly argued that white nationalism is a bad political strategy. Please allow my edit to stand.

New editors usually don't understand that we don't allow personal research. See WP:NOR. We simply go by what sources that meet WP:RS and WP:NPOV say. Doug Weller talk 16:38, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

Large section deleted at Sold SouthEdit

Hello, I noticed that user ‎Jageracog2020 has removed a large section of material from Solid South, and that you had noted similar actions on their talk page. I would revert it myself but I also see from the talk page that it might result in an edit war. Thanks. Dubyavee (talk) 14:54, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

@Dubyavee: but the exit summary used says "remove false statement" a claim he's used before.[1] I doubt there would be an edit war. Or that the editor will last much longer. I'm not reverting as I'm staying uninvolved (I can't act as an Admin if I get involved). Doug Weller talk 15:09, 23 September 2020 (UTC)
Thanks Doug. Another editor reverted his edit, he reverted that, and I put the material back and suggested he put his evidence on the talk page, but I don't think he will. Best, Dubyavee (talk) 16:58, 23 September 2020 (UTC)
@Dubyavee: not unless he appeals and gets unblocked. Doug Weller talk 17:22, 23 September 2020 (UTC)
