It seems that the POV warriors are back. They rallied against logic and 3 RFCs that overwhelmingly disagreed with them turning the page into a redirect to begin with, and now they are still POV warring over its grave.

These are the people that ArbCom sided with, claiming they were great people. Dbachman, Folantin, Akhilleus, Kurdo777, etc., have trolled Persian related articles for a long time. It is continued to a lot of the Jewish vs Islam fighting, but in a very stupid way - the warriors came over and feel the need to control every page. There were multiple Iranian scholars (both from Iran and about Iran) who chimed in to say they were wrong and it only encouraged them further.

Great stuff.

This little doozy is really great when he blatantly lies about the RFCs. Here and here show a large discussion that clearly did not go the way his side wanted.

This just shows what a few organized people with admin powers can do to not only go against every single policy we have but to organize against those who dare stand against them. It is obvious that they continued their fighting and their bs long after I was gone, proving that it was not me. ArbCom f'ed it up big time, as they normally do, because they exist only to support the problem.

If people really want to hasten the day, they should have just support such bad decisions.
