For years, there has been a low-level (and at times high-intensity) conflict about which country can claim Chopin as its son. The observer learns a lot about the Napoleonic code, about the nuances of "citizenship", "nationality", and "ethnicity". Whether this edit war will spread to the page on his memorial on the periodic table is unknown. Casey Kasem may have foreshadowed this edit war decades ago when he offered his first impression of U2 early in their career: "This is bullshit. Editors ruthlessly argue over the formalities of citizenship and nationality.Students of law can argue the finer points of jus sanguinis and jus soli. With "Unionists" and "Independencrats" reviving arguments that once almost sabotaged zh.wiki, this article has the (mis)fortune to have a lengthy FAQ which uses statements like "Chinese can also be Taiwanese just like Chinese can also be Beijingers" and "Jeremy Lin's maternal grandma lives in Zhejiang and thus he has undisputed Chinese descent" to satisfy both sides. Or did he have no nationality at all that bears mentioning? Born of Serbian parents in a part of the Austrian Empire, which a short time later became a part of the Hungarian half of Austria-Hungary and is now in Croatia. Which country's laws of citizenship should be used?No consensus has truly emerged as to an ideal term; or even if the existing one is really a problem or not. If you add tomatoes is it still a Caesar or is it something called a "Letchworth salad"?Was this tasty salad invented in Mexico in 1924, or in ancient Rome? A slow motion edit war stretching out over five years is surely the best way to find out!The article reached eventual consensus on the nationality issue (unknown) and the name of the war (an unknown war in Eastern Europe) based on the author(s) having not revealed the information about the character.Despite it now being eight years since the game's release, and despite edit notices and warning text in the article body and an FAQ on the talk page, the subject still receives many edits a year, and the subject is repeatedly raised on the article talk page.Was this marinated raw fish delicacy invented in Peru, or in Ecuador?
With loyalists and republicans (and even nationalists) on both sides, don't expect an answer soon. Cue edit warring, accusations of vandalism, and full protection of the article. For a while this was resolved by quoting both, but then further edit warring ensued as to whether it should be followed by '(more commonly known as bat)' or B. Costumed climbing of said tower now seems inevitable, presumably dressed as an alternative superhero from usual.
If this does not work, try changing the MOS itself, that always works. Many discussions have taken place over the course of several years as whether "U2 are an Irish rock band" or simply "U2 are a rock band" should be included in the text. Eventually, a heated discussion took place for over two-and-a-half weeks that resulted in at least one editor getting blocked and many more getting warnings, to eventually come to the conclusion that U2 are, in fact, an Irish band.
