I hope that CyclePat *never* reads this :-)

Of course we should think carefully before removing stuff other people
care about, but when the trivia starts to overwhelm the encyclopaedic
content, or individual trivial items start to outweigh individual
significant items, or when a particular regional perspective comes to
overwhelm the perspective of another region which may be more relevant
or significant, it's time to think long and hard about what the
article say *as a whole*.
