"Keel haul them, I say!"

You can quote or source me on this, or store the sound of my POV words in 
a file... I don't see how that makes the place that stores such data POV. 
Raw works, like points of view, may not be NPOV.  Tales told to make sense 
of them, and ways used to show off a work or write of where it came from, 
should be.

Quotes and raw works should be sourced.  They do not live in a void.  This 
puts the N in their POV state...
