An individual who claimed to be a scientist contacted the Wikimedia Foundation, upset that information in their Wikipedia article cited sources that identified them as a pseudoscientist. They had previously contacted the Wikipedia Volunteer Response Team asking for changes to their article, but the editors of the article did not make the changes. They contacted the legal department because they believed there were omissions or inaccuracies in the article and wanted the editors to cooperate with them, and to update the article.
After reviewing the request, we explained how community volunteers edit, write, and curate articles. We provided them with information about how the subject of a biography of living persons can correct information in the article. We also recommended they review the article’s talk page and archives to see the discussion about the article.
