Observations

  • Why the need to protect the page? This is a Wiki and editing restricted to logged on members. It is offensive, as if you expect one of us to vandalise it.
  • Secondly, please change the name "Hari Prasad HS" to "Hari Prasad Nadig".

Hi AshLin. I protected the page because it is a one-time record unlike something that evolves. Do you foresee any need to edit this? Definitely no offence meant to anyone. Even if someone copyedits it, the version will cease to be a replica of a communication that *went out already*. As for HP Nadig, let me go back to my source and check if it needs to be changed. -- Sundar 04:07, 15 February 2011 (EST)
It would be a gesture of trust at a time of distrust. In a wiki, there is no question of any one getting away with vandalism. The change can be reverted. Each edit can be tracked. You need to "Assume Good Faith" here.
As far as the name change is concerned, the Secretary on this page is listed as Hari Prasad HS, in this page, it says Hari Prasad Nadig, please reconcile. That is what I wanted to edit.
