<anthere6(a)yahoo.com> a �crit:
And why I don't like the anchors he is putting
everywhere. Since most of his articles are very long
(but very good and interesting as well), he puts some
anchors in the text, so links from other articles may
lead to the good paragraph in the very meaty one.
All this is good, but I dare not (and he wishes me
to) edit article such as the one on greek religion to
avoid messing with the anchors.
I've just told you how you could do this; rather simple but daunting.
This is very unwiki ihmo,
but when I protest, he says I am not the boss and this
is only *my* opinion, and that I am forcing my desire
of simplicity upon others, to the detriment of quality
articles, which may be long, with sankrit or greek or
whatever characters, and anchors, and non-breakable
spaces, and div spaces :-((((
What kind of behavior is this? Will you then start crying?
This one is a nightmare to me.
I have no idea what other people see here, but as for
myself, it is scarry
Of course, it's full of Chinese characters; as the French Wikipedia can't
handle raw Unicode data, I have to use decimal entities instead.
This desolate me, but if the consensus is to make
editing difficult, I can only try to salvage my little
area of edition.
Ah, yes, he absolutely does so. Word processor.
Laugh. I do not even own it; I use Babelpad, a raw Unicode text editor
<http://uk.geocities.com/BabelStone1357>. But you still believe I'm wrong;
please look a the raw source of your modifications with an hexadecimal
I know because he lectured me on the fact I didnot
know the proper usage of non-breakable spaces (which I
do, but do not respect in the least ;-)). He gave me a
link to a page explaining how to do non-breakable
spaces from my editor. He also said any decent editor
was supporting writing properly good french, and that
I should not edit anything even on talk pages without
having first run the grammatical/typo corrector.
Because my editing without accents, and with spelling
mistakes on talk pages was not respectful of readers.
'Cause we were not a chat, but an encyclopedia
We've got to be serious ! This is no joke work !
Frankly, I find this really childish.
All I can conclude from this comment is that he is
indeed writing all what he upload to wiki on a Word
(or equivalent) editor first hand. Is that usual ???

Of course: Anthere only modifies U+00A0, and not html entities.
Well, I will try to explain that to him
But he will probably answer that I am the only one
doing so with his non breakable editor spaces.
