Hello, Butwhatdoiknow, and welcome to English Wikiquote.

Enjoy! --Rubbish computer (talk) 19:36, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

Reverts explained[edit]

I have reverted extensive removal of sourced quotes from pages which you have recently made without discussion in recent edits. Please stop removing sourced content from Wikiquote. It is considered vandalism. If you want to experiment, please use the sandbox.
Wikiquote exists for the collecting of notable quotations of famous people and famous works. For a quick overview of what Wikiquote is, read Wikiquote:Wikiquote, and also What Wikiquote is not for a list of common activities that Wikiquote does not support.
When people are not interested in responsibly contributing to the development of the project incidents of their deliberate vandalism can result in IP addresses or usernames being blocked from editing.
Thank you. ~ Kalki·· 11:12, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

And thank you for the heads up. As I explained in my edit summaries, I reverted the quotes because they were, in my opinion, not notable (that is, "no enduring relevance to many people"). Did you consider notability of the quotes (as opposed to the persons quoted) before doing mass reversions of my changes? Butwhatdoiknow (talk) 11:49, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
I have been dealing with a vandal here who just migrated to the Commons in his activity — and only have glanced in here before leaving for the day. I do not have time to address your question extensively right now, as I must be leaving immediately, but will address them later. ~ Kalki·· 11:56, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
A short answer to your question is YES, I actually DID "consider notability of the quotes (as opposed to the persons quoted)" as well as numerous other quite evident factors. That I have not yet explicitly and thoroughly addressed some of these is probably to your advantage — because what I perceived to be the extremely biased efforts at censorship of views and statements of notable individuals (even those which I must strongly disagree with), is something that I passionately deplore. I have had limited time to work on this project lately, and that is about all I will state for now, as I again must be leaving. ~ Kalki·· 11:47, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
