Yes, I'm a Wikipedia inclusionist, most of the time. (Maybe only some of the time, it usually depends on the entry. lol) Don't delete, *merge* instead of posting a bunch of stubs on slightly related articles! Cough up a few more hard references to your articles and do a re-write of the related stubs into on larger piece or expand on the stub.

Folks worldwide use this site as at least a secondary reference. (some use this as a primary reference w/o checking what the article cites as *it's* references)

Think of a Wikipedia entry as an essay or some other sort of paper that requires references - include those valid references rather than wild guesses or opinions. Listen to others that may suggest changes or good links to back up your article. Use VALID references, double check those references and stand your ground rather than fighting back and forth.

Give it some thought - what grade would you get for an improperly cited research paper? (example - "my beer told me this data was true" is not a valid citation of whatever data was called for, *UNLESS* you were writing an after-action description of your experiences as a subject of some strange psychiatric test and your beer actually *was* talking to you.)

My opinions, dismiss as needed.
