Republishing factual information without publishing the source of the information is plagiarism. Wikipedia attempts to unfairly gain market position when it hides the source of information so that others are less able to rely on the source and more likely to rely on the republished information. All of Wikipedia's geography articles are plagiarized. None of them cite sources for geographic data gleaned from official sources. There are fewer than 40,000 {(fact)} tags in Wikipedia only because visitors here have massively failed to object to bold-faced plagiarism. The result is that Wikipedia becomes a source, and many of those who would otherwise turn to original sources are misdirected to Wikipedia articles that don't say where their content originated.

I located the source in this article. The link to the Lerdo site provides a path to basic information not usually found on municipal Web sites. My comment was based on frequent reading of articles about US locations where the source is not cited. My comment stands. Meoron's removal of my comments from this page was an unmerited attack, and an attempt to chill discussion that would improve an open encyclopedia database of topical information.

In the process of removing the unwarranted (fact) tag after locating the citation, I also removed opinion, which said the city is known for its friendly people, among other subjective, qualititive assumptions about the city.Marakopa 05:17, 16 December 2006 (UTC)
