Actually the real evil is slavish adherence to process
in the absence
of the ever-elusive Clue. Wiki-process exists to guide and inform,
not to instruct, and far too many people fail to understand this.
It's an easy error to make - many a considerate editor will come here,
read up on the policies and guidelines and words and words and PAGES
AND PAGES of stuff and try to make sense of it all. Do they know which
way is up without a guide in the face of an incoherent morass of
millions of words of policies and guidelines? Of course they don't.
