Dhaval, Before writing such a scathing email criticizing an administrator (which is me) who allegedly made this statement, perhaps you should have verified it with me first?
I was making a reference to Wikiproject Gujarat on the English Wikipedia, which has run out of contributors. You can independently confirm it with the others who were present at the meet up. I encouraged the rest of the participants to contribute to guwp. It's shameful that you are drawn to make personal attacks on a public platform without checking your facts in the first place. And I'll really appreciate if you drop the polemics. Thanks, Anirudh Sent from my iPhone On 17-Jan-2012, at 4:30 AM, "Dhaval S.
