I want to point out a marvelously apt comment from [[User:Aaron
Brenneman]] amid the votes on [[Wikipedia:Articles for
"Regarding the process that brought this here: The
''second'' an article sticks its head into main
space it's fair game. We tell neophytes this all
the time, experianced editors should know it well
enough." (Emphasis on ''second'' in the original.)
Clearly Aaron agrees with the moral I've drawn from this little
imbroglio, but I particularly love his imagery. Those articles can
skulk around outside if they want, but just let one raise its head, and
BANG, all consideration, support, and even hesitation is gone.
Everyone, newbies as well as old-timers, should know that article-space
is a free-fire zone.
Which, of course, is emphasized by his most telling phrase, "fair game,"
taken from hunting. Fair game can be legally shot and killed.
