Yeah. I just do the "don't bite" bit. Example, I came across this edit recently:


Ok, now that text doesn't really belong. It's trivia. It's not
notable. It's even poorly written. But I left it. I couldn't see much
benefit in hurting some primary school kid's feelings over it. It's
only *slightly* too trivial, and definitely not in a harmful way.
Maybe if I come across it in a month or two I'll kill it then...but no
reason to tread on this kid's toes so quickly.
