Dear Users! Recently in Azerbaijan Wikipedia increasingly heard homophobic remarks from administrators. One of the most ardent opponents of LGBT is User Irada. I present to you written by her and other user comments on the matter [1] With respect - Keete 37


ːDear Meta users, the administrator of the Azerbaijani Wikipedia Irada didn't inform you in a full form, and I am afraid that you will understand this situation incorrectly. Therefore I would like to explain you the reason of this dispute fully. Some time ago, article about LGBT history of Azerbaijan [2] was created in the Azerbaijani Wikipedia. But because of subject of this article the administrator Irada made numerous homophobic statements, in particular having declared such article humiliating both for the Azerbaijani history, and for its mentality. Later she marked that such article has to be “hidden” from others eyes and gave this article on the candidate to removal. But by results of the vote, taken among administrators and users, it was decided to leave this article in Wikipedia [3]. Having decided that the author of this article is me, Irada started pressing on me by means of my employer. The specified Mr. Hajizade is the head of the HajizadeGroup company, where I work. Irada several times addressed to him with the requirement to limit my activity on Wikipedia. Otherwise, she threatened to begin large-scale debate on public TV channel of Azerbaijan on this matter, and also blackmailed that will start distributing information in connection with so-called “gay propaganda” in this company. For this reason I was compelled to make a screenshot, written on social networks of threats, and insert it on the page of discussion of Wikipedia. Any person, except Irada, wasn't mentioned in this correspondence. The name of the above-mentioned administrator Irada is identical on Facebook. Despite it, considering that the insert of information from social networks is violation of the rules in Wikipedia, the same punishments, which were applied earlier, were applied to me. I was blocked for 3 days.[4] But in spite of attacks from Irada on my private life, any punishment wasn't applied in relation to her. Regards --Sefer azeri (talk) 09:44, 12 May 2015 (UTC)[reply]

My conversation on the Facebook was about the article which was original research. And there was no any homophobia. Just the article, which was proposed for deletion, is an original research. On the Facebook Sefer azeri insulted me and after that put the screenshot of our discussion on the Wikipedia. If you read that screenshot another user Hajizade said to take me to court. --İrada (talk) 14:10, 13 May 2015 (UTC)[reply]
