NPOV concerns[edit]

Given the second article in 24 hours on state politics by an anon. IP I am concerned about NPOV. I have nothing specific, it would take a lot of work to verify the claims and to verify the neutrality. And the anon. IP creator, who has no provenance and no consequence here, but certainly has some sort of clue, is using that that from a possible promotional angle while making verificability and neutrality difficult to establish. -- 20:27, 19 February 2023 (UTC) Djm-leighpark(a)talk 20:27, 19 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for expressing your concern on this article, and also earlier on the topic of Denazification. ‎I see absolutely no conflict here. Naturally the quotes of this intellectual professor Anatol Lieven, reflect his opinions. The notable people quoted on wikiquotes all have POVs and express their POVs in their words. That's the way it goes. It's ok, nothing to worry about.184.4.83.189 20:57, 19 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

NPOV tag removal[edit]

Y Done: In the context of the creator being block, the blocking admin choosing to retain the article, and various edits myself and others have made on the article removal of {{NPOV}} seems appropriate and was done here. -- Djm-leighpark(a)talk 09:18, 20 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Removal of Responsible Statecraft quotes[edit]

Responsible Statecraft is the magazine of Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft which is a magazine of the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft of which Anatol Lieven is a fellow. I am minded a secondary or tertiary reference would be appropriate in this circumstance. I have therefore removed these quotes but they may be re-introduced if supported by a tertiary reference. Doing this would mean I would be more comfortable with removal of {{npov}} following some tweaking of other cites where the publications have appropriate Wikipedia articles. The quotes removed can be seen here. -- Djm-leighpark(a)talk 08:58, 20 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

DeirgeDel - Djm-leighpark[edit]

For various reasons I have globally stopped editing with Djm-leighpark and are continuing with my alt. account DeirgeDel being my main account. This is to make perfectly clear that I have previously contributed to this page as Djm-leighpark & will henceforth be contributing as DeirgeDel. Ask at my talk page if necessary and I apologise for needing to make this switch. Thankyou. -- DeirgeDel tac 18:44, 22 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
