*********Don't think that's just because you are editing as an ip! Of course, there's nothing to stop you maintaining a rolling user page with old ip numbers, so people can see your record. But you don't want to do that. [[User:Johnbod|Johnbod]] ([[User talk:Johnbod|talk]]) 17:47, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
**********No, I don’t do that because I don’t have to. The idea is something of a straw man: My record on previous pages has nothing to do with this page here. [[Special:Contributions/109.249.185.105|109.249.185.105]] ([[User talk:109.249.185.105|talk]]) 18:37, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
***********Dear IP, "You don't have to?" But you didn't have to start this vacuous RFC either—given that you have given no indication thus far that you know anything about the topic. How long do you plan to be a [[dog in the manger]]?

************I have now undone your disruptive edit. You cannot engage in [[WP:Content forking]] by reverting to a so-called "status quo." The injunction to avoid content forks is a Wikipedia content guideline.

*'''Too drastic''' per reasoning by Fowler&fowler in the sectionabove. [[User:GMPX1234|GMPX1234]] ([[User talk:GMPX1234|talk]]) 01:33, 29 November 2020 (UTC)
**You’ll have to clarify {{u|GMPX1234}}: Fowler&Fowler was removing material that has been added over the course of several years by multiple editors. Were they all being “too drastic”, or was Fowler&Fowler being “too drastic”?
