Then later when it became obvious I would not stop trying to create a fair non-biased version of the article, the article was locked. These are not 'Rational' actions. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

No I was trying to de-bias an article. Not add bias. This response by Hydrogen and Time though proves though that maybe this site should be called TrollWiki.— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

So, stop being a dick, stop trying to enforce your views and take your points to the talk page. We're quite ready to listen, we don't like drive by major changes to long established articles. Innocent Bystander (talk) 11:20 am, Today (UTC−5)

The article was British_Constitution_Group. Innocent Bystander

I'm not being a dick, nor am I trying to enforce views I was simply trying to take out the obvious bias in that article to make it more accurate and not a page full of troll diabtribe. Since you all seem to prefer the diatribe I will after this response stop feeding the trolls. Don't worry you'll never hear from me again. Not that listening and understanding are parts of your skillset anyway. (That last sentence is an example of 'being a dick'.)— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs
Here's the thing -- we don't "de-bias" our articles, because we have a bias, one which we wear pretty proudly on our sleeves. If there are specific elements of that article you want to address, take out an account and bring those points up on the article's talk page. But an anonymous editor trying to totally change the tone of an article is pretty much guaranteed to have no success. Theory of Practice Peter Tosh > Bob Marley 16:34, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
