Welcome to Wikipedia! May I call you "24" for short? Ed Poor
I have no problem with rewrites, they generally improve articles, but I have a big problem with people removing whole articles of relatively uncontroversial stuff that no one else has bothered to define or research at all. Also with people who assume that just because a political party advocates it, it must be somehow biased or wrong.

I am not a "vandal" and don't like that term. I'm getting used to the process here. I am not sure I like serious essays being labelled 'junk' by some golfer or geek.

It's not like I don't have a theory of what I'm doing. Check the entries in the meta defining ethics and NPOV itself. You might see where I'm coming from and why I think certain things are important and others might not be. I want my facts straight, but I don't want to see typo-corrections reversed by a clique of self-appointed gurus. What you need here is a consensus process.

Note: I extracted the above three quotes from the talk after moving all but my welcome to the talk page. Please forgive me if I have overstepped my bounds. -- Ed Poor, Wednesday, April 10, 2002

Apparently someone believes that '24' is one person, acting on their own, and has apparently attached a real person's name to various 24 contributions. Is that ethical? How are such claims to be evaluated here? Are all others who contribute anonymously subject to such 'outing'? Also, the articles above have been extensively edited by others, often integrating multiple texts, and it's often unreasonable to assert that 24's influence on that article was dominant or even important. If one is to take an IP number and assign it the same name as some human body, God help us is someone decides to assign responsibility for everything that comes through the AOL proxy...

User 24 has been banned from Wikipedia for threatening another contributor. He keeps writing under changing IP numbers generally in the 142.177.* range. Examples of his work can be found in the page histories of articles like

conceptual metaphor, Foundations of mathematics, Genocide, Great Ape personhood, intermediate technology, mathematical practice, Persuasion technology, Scientism, Technology, Uneconomic growth

The same user is also quite active on Meta (http://meta.wikipedia.org), contributing to pages such as m:Governance, m:History of Wikipedia, m:Future of Wikipedia, m:Best casees, m:Talk:Larry Sanger and many others.
