[OSM-talk] Persian/Arabian Gulf Tagging

You explain to me why when the Arabs changed name:ar to the Arabic name, those changes were reversed and the Persian name was imposed even on the name:ar tag?
We have the right to use the name we want and we see it as correct as you have the right to do so, and we are the majority in the Gulf and we only changed the name and did not sabotage the map of Iran as you did with the map of Saudi Arabia.

I'd like you to explain more about what do you extactly mean by "impose"
& "imposing". As far as I know, Persian Gulf's key:name tag has been
"Persian Gulf" from the beginning (February 14, 2019 10:08 PM).

It is only 3 months (March 29, 2021 1:27 PM) that user (UID:1147414) has
changed to "A-B" format without any prior discussion, talk or even
informative changeset comment. How do you think of such actions in this
sensitive area?

Is it expected from other users who reverted the change (whom you call
vandalist) to discuss?
