Horriable grammer used here, fixing lots of old information and updating new attractions - billy_san

Maybe you should be a little less quick to criticize others' grammar when your spelling (or maybe it's just your typing) isn't horribly strong. :) One of the other people here already un-did these changes, not because of the spelling, but because you took out and changed so much, including the standard headers we use. Editing something so it's more brief is fine, but taking out entire descriptions and contact information is very unhelpful to anyone reading the page. And removing the entire listing of places to sleep is simply destructive. - Todd VerBeek 17:49, 3 June 2006 (EDT)

I was not done, all the information i removed was not up to date and I added updated information but you restored it WHILE i was editing.

I tried to help, whatever.

You removed the entire descriptions and directions to Dolphin Reef and the Observatory. What...they moved? They don't rehabilitate dolphins or do educational astronomy programs any more? Just leaving a link to a web site is not enough; we want information here. The "Eat" and "Sleep" sections had some general information as well as a few listings. Is the beachfront no longer "packed with stylish but expensive restaurants"? Is the north beach no longer "packed with luxury hotels"? The Negev desert no longer "surrounds the entire area [with] plenty of jeep safaris, camel rides and hikes available"? This is all material you deleted. When you delete entire sections like that and reformat the article with different headers, it looks like you're doing more damage than helping. Maybe Bill acted too quickly, but misunderstandings will be a lot less likely if you explain why you're removing material instead of updating it. - Todd VerBeek 19:38, 3 June 2006 (EDT)
I was not removing anything, I updated old information, everything I deleted was meant to be rephrased 5 minutes later. why the hell would I want to remove complete sections just like that, your reaction is just narrow and instinctive, hell with that.
I'm still at a loss to understand why you would remove information without replacing it with correct information at the same time. What you were doing looked like vandalism, and since no one here knows you, how would we know that it wasn't? - Todd VerBeek 15:22, 31 July 2006 (EDT)

Eilat has a major Yeshiva called Yeshivat Kerem B'Eilat. Thus, how is Eilat purely secular!

Subtle shades of untouched desert[edit]

...are now plowed into more-or-less MoS shape, with the puke-inducing purple prose ("unquestionably the most glamorous hotel"?) edited out. Jpatokal 19:48, 5 October 2006 (EDT)
