Review of revision 4558822 [Passed][edit]

I had in mind, for the sake of clarity, to add here a list of items that made me pause. Atm I only see three of these; on a few others that I remember considering during review, what I decided on consideration was that they were fine, in which case there's not call for me to list them here.

Wikinews waves Left.png((WNWikinews waves Right.png)) You weren't living in Iran at that time. You weren't representing Iran. You had made it very clear you didn't want to play for the federation. And yet they decide to sensationalise this banning of yours?
— a slightly-leading question.
Wikinews waves Left.png((WNWikinews waves Right.png)) Your younger brother was also banned by the [Iranian] Chess Federation at the same tournament, playing against an Israeli Grand Master. He was fourteen. He was just a kid.
— a decidedly-leading question; grated on me a bit.
Wikinews waves Left.png((WNWikinews waves Right.png)) I just feel he shouldn't have been dragged into this [situation].
— an opinion, inviting the interviewee to agree. It did work, eliciting a useful response.
