Which ''was'' one of the centers of Waerths activities. Waerth has 
stopped contributing since it was made impossible by Muijz and Wikix as 
they deliberately provocate Waerth by deliberately making edits for 
edits sake. Meanwhile accusing Waerth of not wanting to co-operate. 
Anyone looking at the edits made on Thailand articles in the Dutch 
wikipedia will see that Waerth co-operates in a good manner. And I think 
that the people who also work on Thailand articles in the english 
wikipedia like Ahoerstemeier can attest that waerth co-operates in a 
fine manner.

I am getting sick and tired of people who edit for edittings sake and 
who only use that as a way to provocate others. And then hold large 
diatribes accusing others of refusing to co-operate. And then to be even 
more provocative use someone's real name which means that someone's real 
name gets slaundered all over the internet.

I am still waiting for the bloody arbcom which was promised over a year 
ago on nl: but still gets frustrated.
