Being pov is not a crime - writing POV is a typical
symptom of most writing in need of correction -
harrassment, insults, and threats - these are the
reasons for a hard ban. Hes not the most unreasonable
person in the world; he's representing a particular
view. What matters is how he and I and others conduct
themselves. Frustration is no excuse.

However, it's also worth noting this guy's record.
He's attempted to
add POV material and subvert consensus that had
taken a long time to
work out on numerous articles. Indeed, before his
previous block, I
believe he'd assaulted not one, not two, but
Eastern articles [[UNRWA]] and [[Tali Hatuel]]
being two, causing the
former to be re-protected. He doesn't seem to
discuss edits, just
reverts, or if he does anything, will not give
ground from his
(usually hardline) position. Thus, if he's
shouldn't be much of a surprise - and please
judge it purely on
the basis of his latest actions.
The User Formerly Known As OneVoice is on [[Current
events]] as a
propagandist. He keeps putting in stories from INN
(a partisan news source
whose reports tend not to faintly resemble
mainstream press even when one
makes it that far. But don't take my word for it,
- at least with Slashdot it's just kept out as
having a ridiculously small
ambit). I suggest it's nothing like news unless it
hits the mainstream
press, or what passes for mainstream in specialist
politics is part of the ambit of the mainstream
press, so if it's on INN
and nowhere else then it's deeply suspect.
(I have also been accused of bias for cutting
completely crappy stories
slanted against Israel, so I must therefore, by the
comments on my actions,
be an anti-Semitic Jew.)
[[Current events]] has some sort of vague criteria
While not *everything* will be caught by the
mainstream newsfeeds, nor
are they certain indicators of worthiness, they do
make a handy rough guide.
The INN feed really doesn't cut the mustard.
