Seeking Resolution For Disruptive User[edit]

I'm not sure how this works precisely, but I am seeking to report a user under the name MrOllie who is obstructing my edits. On the Buck Breaker article, he continues to insist that the citations provided to an excerpt are supported, though after having checked the citations, they provide zero relevance to what is written on the wikipedia page. The wikipedia page excerpt in question is referring to a conspiracy about attempts to instill homosexuality within the black community and to feminize black men. The citation in question (Afrocentric Worldview, Hetero-Normative Ethos and Black LGBTQ Intellectuals Matriculating through Afrocentric Psychology Programs at Historically Black Colleges/Universities (HBCUs)), specifically discusses the LGTQ community in regards to the black community and within afrocentric studies and does not mention A) An attempt to instill homosexuality within the black community or B) An attempt to feminize black men. I hope you can warn him or settle the matter, as the wikipedia page itself is significantly lacking in reliable attribution and requires editing in order to reflect its lack-thereof.VirtualRebound22 (talk) 02:10, 26 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

VirtualRebound22 has been repeatedly deleting content with obviously false edit summaries - first claiming that there are no citations, and then instead claiming they don't support the content when pressed. Both claims are obviously false - the citation obviously supports the claim if you check it. MrOllie (talk) 02:14, 26 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry guys. Please contact another admin. BorgQueen (talk) 02:26, 26 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
