What may work for [[Spoo]] may not work for [[New_anti-Semitism]].
The main issue here is if we are dealing with a controversial topic,
a biography of a living person, or an ongoing enterprise. In these

Spoo, if we do not have the article 100% verifiable to reliable
sources, nobody will be harmed, really.
