This doesn't seem to be the first time this anon has come up in a 
dispute - see some of the text at [[Talk:Azerbaijan]], [[Talk:South 
Azerbaijan]], etc. for details. I'm currently in the process of talking 
with this user about his apparent dispute and asking him to provide 
evidence for his claims. In the meantime I suggest you attempt not to, 
shall we say, "fuel his argument". Hopefully this will not escalate any 
further than it already has...
