There is a discussion at ...
... in which proposals are being made to remove unsourced content
from articles and/or delete articles all together if material is not
sourced within 30 days after placing a warning template.
I am no inclusionist, but I see this as a dangerous narrow
application of policy that may cost us a lot of lost content that
My view is that editors should endeavor in *looking for sources*
rather than deleting content that is not sourced. After all, we are
here to build an encyclopedia, and the tens of thousands of
occasional contributors that do not know of our policies, are after
all, those that *add* most of the new material to our project.
