    I'm on a Wikibreak right now so I'm leaving you all up to the mercy of the other Wikipedia editors. Ha ha ha. :p

    Seriously, it tells us more about the racquet than it does about Safin, which is why the advertising-like parts would be excised. Sureshs, I'll see how I can rewrite that segment of the Federer article to exclude the Wilson promotional material. I'd like to encourage anyone else who's...

    Well, I think the info about the type of racquets he used would stay (plus the paintjob stuff), but someone following Wikipedia's Neutral Point of View policy would remove the blatantly advertising-like segments of the first paragraph, i.e., "This features Head's new 'Flexpoint technology' which...

    I think it would stay because it cites the ESPN article (just make sure you link to it) and conforms with Wikipedia's guideline on reliable sources.

    *shrug* Well, "Revert war" redirects to the "Edit war" article on Wikipedia. And no, I'm not an admin. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revert_war http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Edit_war

    The whole article, or just the equipment section of the article? Several people have made major contributions to the Roger Federer article and there have been attempts to rewrite the whole thing to make it more concise.

    No, it's also called an edit war. :p But terminology aside, what I'm just aiming for is discussion, hopefully in the article's Talk page so that other article editors can see what is being discussed and can weigh in. Not all of the people who are actively involved in the Federer article are...

    For reliable sources, Wikipedia requires published and/or recorded sources. For instance, even though Chiru spoke to Mr. Bosworth about Federer's racquet, we can't take Chiru's word for Bosworth's statements. Look, I've done my best to provide my rationale for removing that part of the section...

    Okay, so I decided to check back in here after a full month and a half of taking a break from this place, and this is what I see. LOL. :) For those who missed it, here's a link to why I left. I'm starting to wonder why I even bothered coming around here again. I started editing Wikipedia in...

    For all intents and purposes, I really do intend on leaving. I never said I wouldn't be back, though. :)

    Over-Moderated

    I have tried to handle the criticism as best I can; I came to the conclusion I wasn't wanted as a moderator, so quitting is the way I'm handling it. My leaving this board has more to do with the bad feelings that more often than not come up when one is subjected to criticism; I don't want to...
