  1. Whats all this then - I thought Wikipedia was off-limits here? :-)

  2. I've said many times that Wikipedia for controversial topics should always be considered off-limits in polite company.

  5. Regarding Wikipedia;



1. Commenters are welcome and invited.
2. All comments are moderated. Off-topic grandstanding, spam, and gibberish will be ignored. Tu quoque will be moderated.
3. Read the post before you comment. Challenge facts, but don't simply ignore them.
4. Use a name. If it's important enough to say, it's important enough to put a name to.
5. Above all: Act with honour. Say what you mean, and mean what you say.
