[WikiEN-l] Getting rid of userpages

In all of this discussion of deleting userpages (which would deprive me 
of some thoughtful essays, such as [[User:Wetman]]'s comments on a valuable 
Wikipedia article), has any of the participants noticed that there are at 
least two contests for the "Best user page"?

If attention devoted to user pages is attention & resources taken from 
Wikipedia -- & therefore a Bad Thing -- then maybe someone should talk to 
these horrible people who are encouraging people to improve their  user pages. 
(Even though Jimbo's own page is one of those nominated by one group as 
worthy of consideration.)

Or perhaps consider that this maillist has become an ivory tower, disconnected 
with the daily actions of Wikipedia. But I am often wrong in my conclusions.
