And maybe you should go to him to ask this. Maybe he doesn't mind. I
don't mind if you use my real name (although looking back having it as
my nick makes it a bit too conspicuous - everyone looking up me on the
web will get to a few dozen Wikipedia userpages), maybe he doesn't
either. Maybe he does, but then at least he's given you good
ammunition to argument against him doing the same to you.

I am not saying that what he did is right or that what you did is
wrong. What I am saying is that by reacting as if it is the greatest
wiki-sin possible whenever Wikix or Muijz says anything about you or
about Thailand, you're not helping to solve the situation. You are
just making Wikix' "everyone is allowed to edit" reasoning sound more
and more reasonable.
