Hello Mark W., Stirling N., John Lee, Ingrid Mazeltov & whoever else is
I fail to see why all this inflammatory language is necessary -- or
Instead of commenting on each offensive remark, I would like to adress the
actual issue at hand -- the Yiddish Wikipedia.
I agree with Mark W. that one should be careful deleting stubs -- even when
these are really rudimentary. I agree with Stirling N. that the quoted
examples are very rudimentary indeed (but not in his language...) -- and I
prefer to refrain from commenting Ingrid M.'s rather loaded remark.
As for the problem with the Yiddish Wikipedia, my personal experience is
that it is hard to work with because of the problems with the user
interface. Maybe someone could take the job to translate a new version from
the Hebrew interface -- which has already dealt with most of the RTL issues
at hand here.
And then I suggest to be liberal along the way concerning how rudimentary
the stubs can be without being deleted.
Meanwhile, maybe we here on wikipedia-l can agree not to try to kill each
other verbally and/or otherwise....? :)
Friendly greetings from

I am very sad that I have to report this, but Node is
articles in the Yiddish wikipedia.
To Node, I am asking you to stop dealing with languages
you do not know.
Let the smaller language Wikipedias grow naturally, without interference
I knew what the articles said just as much as you did.
A page that says "_______ is a brother of
[[________]]" and have the other
article just link back, in addition to using incorrect orthography, is not
even on the level of a stub, as is the case with an article simply saying
I think it's very interesting that you are so upset
about me interfering
in Wikipedias in languages I do not know and asking me to let them grow
naturally when you yourself support proposals to lock inactive Wikipedias,
far from letting them grow naturally.
Your accusations are out of line Mr. Williamson. You
owe the list an apology.
Agreed. Very out of line.
What accusations are you talking about, exactly,
anyways? If you tell me
accusations are out of line, can you at least let me know which ones?
If you aren't capable of understanding what you
write, then you
should think more before writing it.
So you are accusing me of something, but then are not
willing to back it
up with evidence?
Stop trying to waste my time.
You criticised someone Jewish, Mark, and for that
hubris you'll pay.
If you're not willing to substantiate a claim with
evidence, but rather
prefer to make it and then try to get out of it later by telling me to
stop wasting your time, it's probably better if you don't do it in the
