I would only like to remind people that showing some sympathy is not a
bad thing .

Coming from armed forces where there are no second places - to me the
greatest sin is lack of competence, whether in language, wiki-writing,
techniques or otherwise. I was told by someone that Wikipeding was a
voluntary activity so high standards should not be expected in
competence. If that is true, then we should not suddenly start
witch-hunting on the basis of principle when we are ourselves so
casual about other qualities in other ways!

Without mentioning specific incidents, I have come across this
tendency to crucify others in India community - which is deplorable.

Before any one becomes high & mighty on morals here, one should look
closely at what are harmful crimes against humanity (murder, rape etc)
and what are social misdemeanours (wiki-crimes). So many of us condone
other faults all the time in Indian society; it is hypocrisy to be
principled in issues concerning others, when we ourselves don't apply
the highest standards to ourselves.

In my opinion. it is NOT the business of this community to go
searching for culprits unless the culprit has affected us in some
manner, which does not appear to be the case.

As Jesus Christ said, let he who is without blame cast the first stone.

There are far better and much more important things to do here.

Warm regards,

Ashwin Baindur
