It is not only the writing of RolfR. and
a signifcance part of the
german admins, it is their
far-right-wing political behavior which I
criticize. Till today FrankS., member of

is responsible in the foundation for the
Outreach project.

exclusion of the user Brummfuss,
he was founder of the Nazipedia-Warning
which listed the
articles with right wing bias writers.
First the page was deleted,
and then Brummfuss
I will continue to criticize that:
inside and outside of the WP-project.

(Pardon for my bad English).
