This post ends with the sentence "Constantinopole is present-day Istanbul".
I pointed out in the comments that "If someone doesn't even know "Constantinopole is present-day Istanbul." I somehow doubt he has a valid answer to this question, or to any other historycal question for that matter.", and I suggested an edit removing it.
I've been answered "You have no right to vandalize someone else's post. Lay off!"
This IMAO is patently insane:
- I'm not vandalizing, I'm improving. If someone suggests that such an edit is a vandalization, he has absolutely no clue what a vandalization is.
- That aggressive tone is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE. Try to figure out how you would react to a stranger telling you that IRL.
Two details that are worth adding, reading the comments:
technically, the OP had more rep than me, so with this (flawed) rep system, he could be considered my "senior" (now we might argue that rep doesn't mean anything, and I would agree, but it was appropriate to point it out)
I did not edit the post, I do not have enough rep for that: I suggested and edit, which was approved by someone else (I guess at least two other users? (anonymous, which is insane too)).
