Images on Wikiquote Pages[edit]

I would very much appreciate it if you ceased adding images or even removed images on the Wikiquote pages. Not only are they distracting from the primary content (the text itself), but they significantly increase load time when I go to a page for a simple quote. While some of them may have something to do with the source material itself, many of them are abstract symbols or representations that would normally play a minor role in the material itself. I understand that this is one of your pet projects, but I know I am not the only person who has been perturbed by this. It has significantly detracted from my enjoyment of and use of this site. I would appreciate if you took this under consideration the next time you seek to "revert" someone editing the images off of any one of these pages. Thank you. 01:26, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

As you seem to be very familiar with situations here, and you have chosen to remove all images from the Dune pages, I am considering it highly likely that you are the same editor who has been removing images from that page in the past, using various IPs and sometimes with extremely abusive insults to myself. If this is not the case, I still stand by the assertion that however perturbed you might be by the inclusion of images which you do not appreciate, your implicit assertions that you should have the right to simply make a mass removal of material which most people are not perturbed by, and others are appreciative of, remains presumptive of a right to be destructive of other's work which I do not accept. ~ Kalki 01:38, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
