Stop undoing my revisionsEdit

You have a problem with a specific part of my revision, just edit that part. Also it is not "fringe" to quote a public official with no claim that what they said was accurate. You want to provide evidence that the claim made by the public official was inaccurate, then you can add that to the article with sources that specifically say the claim you are making.

April 2021Edit

  Hello, I'm Wikipedia is written by people who have a wide diversity of opinions, but we try hard to make sure articles have a neutral point of view. Your recent edit to Daryl Gates seemed less than neutral and has been removed. If you think this was a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. You falsely characterized the book "Badges without Borders" as a "study." It is not peer reviewed nor published in a notable journal. Instead, it is a book published by an author seeking to advance his theory regarding the issue. Misrepresenting the nature of a source calls into question your neutrality.

  Please do not add commentary, your own point of view, or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles, as you did to Los Angeles Police Department. Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and breaches the formal tone expected in an encyclopedia. You again characterized a book written by a random university lecturer as a "study" while you have removed peer-reviewed studies from other articles. (talk) 09:09, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

West Indies FederationEdit

Hi. I have some issues with this edit (apart from the fact that I think you mean Guyana, not Guinea). I'm not saying race wasn't an issue, but the claim that it contributed to the downfall of the Federation is a contested claim that shouldn't be made in Wikipedia's voice. Beyond that, it strikes me as a smaller issue - smaller than, say, the rivalry between Manley and Busta - so blaming race without bringing in the larger factors strikes me as UNDUE.

I'm not an expert on the matter. I'm just going with what the source says. If you want, we can weaken the language in some way. Thank you for correcting Guyana/Guinea typo. The book is also about the Ghana/Guinea/Mali union, so that explains my typo re: WIF. Snooganssnoogans (talk) 19:14, 26 April 2021 (UTC)
I don't have access to the source, so I can't fix it. At the least, attribute the claims, don't make them in Wikipedia's voice please. Guettarda (talk) 13:07, 27 April 2021 (UTC)


Since you created this RfC I figured it's best if you also closed it. It's getting pretty bloated and consensus seems to be definitive yes on options 2 and 3, while the reception on option 1 is more mixed. I think it would be a good idea to close the current RfC in favor of options 2 and 3, and then start a fresh one exclusively for option 1 and ping everyone who contributed previously.
