Alternative medicine is covered by discretionary sanctions under WP:ARBPS

This message contains important information about an administrative situation on Wikipedia. It does not imply any misconduct regarding your own contributions to date.

Please carefully read this information:

The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding pseudoscience and fringe science, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here.

Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to the topic that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behavior, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. This message is to notify you that sanctions are authorised for the topic you are editing. Before continuing to edit this topic, please familiarise yourself with the discretionary sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.

You are being alerted since you filed an edit warring report about Naturopathy. Thank you EdJohnston (talk) 18:23, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Ego-dystonic sexual orientation


Today you added Template:NPOV to Ego-dystonic sexual orientation. As that template's documentation indicates, you should add a message to the article's Talk page letting folks know what the concern is. Given particularly that there is no current conversation going on on the talk page (there hasn't been a discussion post in over a year), it's unclear what the concerns are. So if you could go back and raise your concerns in some text, I'd appreciate it! --Nat Gertler (talk) 22:21, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

your behavior has been reported

here (talk) 17:55, 29 October 2016 (UTC)

Your habitual dishonesty, hypocrisy and aggressive editing behaviour.

Please refrain in future from making ridiculously false comments and claiming they are clearly supported by the arbitration decision when they are not. You seem to simply make stuff up to suit your obsessive personal agenda. Your editing behaviour is blatantly dishonest, hypocritical and aggressive. Afterwriting (talk) 10:05, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

Bullying of other editors

You need to stop repeatedly bullying other editors as you have now done again with "The Banner". Your behaviour is a pathetic disgrace. Afterwriting (talk) 11:28, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

I am more than happy to be called a disgrace if it is in the face of promoting pseudoscience. Carl Fredrik 💌 📧 12:18, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

Objectivity of lead

Normally the lead begins by describing the subject of the article objectively. Normative evaluations are generally placed at the close of the lead or in the body of the article as critical reception. Does this not make sense? In the case of Anthroposophy's lead, the question of it being considered pseudoscience is already covered in the lead's closing paragraph. To mention this twice is overkill, and to mention it in the first sentence (worse -- without attribution) is really not appropriate.

It might be worth comparing Encyclopedia Britannica's treatment of the theme. Clean Copytalk 21:21, 4 November 2016 (UTC)

With this[11]? It is a new condition but there are now lots of good sources. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 19:11, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Doc James—I may have been a little quick, or even have tagged the wrong article. I removed the notice, thanks for the heads up. Carl Fredrik 💌 📧 20:21, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
