Parents guides being altered

It seems really weird that any alterations I make on parents guides , mostly adding detail is being deleted by  user "nageltr" What is strange is they appear to be able to search on all my additions. Its not really a problem as I just change them back and as I work on a computer all day, its actually quite relaxing.
What I would like to know how is it possible to search?
Also the revert button is not working . but i just keep a record of the original guide.

I have noted on one of the parents guides that they have been reported.

Hi BlackXPanda,

We are currently investigating. Do you have any evidence that merkins were used during the filming of these scenes? Also please do not use sentences such as "as is normal for this production company", please keep the information based solely on the title and avoid using opinion in your updates. Finally please do not use the parental guides to list details of public feuds with other contributors, that is in direct violation of our policies. Please remove this at once or we will be forced to take further action.

Regards,
Will

Thank you for investigating. To be fair the person is deleting other people's contributions as well.
There is evidence on the internet that merkins are used. I can post links if required.
I have removed the note to the user who is deleting text. I only put it as I had posted on here and no one had replied.
I try to be 100% factually correct and take the edit responsibility very seriously.
This person is deleting details of any male nudity as well , which seems very odd.

Hi BlackXPanda,

Please allow us the relevant time to be able to investigate any issues, also yes if you do have any links that would help.

All as before and as above. I have a feeling it's the same person under another ID?

Hi BlackXPanda,

The thing is whether merkins are used or not (which I have seen no evidence of) is irrelevant - this information has little or no use to a user trying to find out if sex or nudity is present in a title and therefore has no place in the parents guide. Please see this section from http://www.imdb.com/swiki/special?ParentalGuideHelp#.2.1.1 "we ask that instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right
or wrong in a film, that you instead use this new feature to help
parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories". Please can you remove any mention of merkins from any live guides and refrain from adding this information from any parents guides moving forwards.

Regards,
Will

Thank you for the reply. I think you are missing the point. In that respect I was trying to inform people whether or not actual female frontal nudity was present. If you compare Rosario Dawson in Trance and Leah McKendrick in Bad Moms there is no comparison.
In any event I have amended to take out any reference to merkins.
I will not be adding or altering any further guides as I am very disappointed in your reply. Furthermore I think the IMDB has lost its way and even it's ratings can't be trusted anymore due to bot manipulation.
