Do you guys complete one another's sentences, too?

I've seen plenty of straw men coming from your camp too, like the 
constant mentions of the so-called "attack sites" not being "reliable 
sources", something that's irrelevant when the link in question is 
being done outside article space (like the vast majority of the links 
that have been made an issue), and arguably untrue in the handful of 
cases where the link actually was in article space (like the one that 
triggered this particular thread, where the link was used as a source 
for something that actually occurred in such a site, and was relevant 
to a notable controversy being covered in an article).  In non-
article linking, WP:RS is irrelevant, and in article linking it's a 
content dispute which isn't helped by one side threatening to block 
people on the other side.
