Abdul, You have not given of your time to Wikipedia and you have no moral right to criticise Hisham for anything he has done. I wonder why you are subscribed to this list at all. You are welcome to be a Wikipedian and if not, be an constructive member of the community even if you dont edit. We have such people. But your diatribe about someone you have not met and know nothing about first-hand is not at all appreciated and not the way to go.
