Fyodor Dostoyevsky on notability:

To me he is noteworthy, but I decidedly doubt that I shall succeed in proving it to the reader.
I quite agree that it is superfluous, but since it is already written, let it stand.

(From The Brothers Karamazov, trans. Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, North Point Press, 1990, pps. 3-4.)

Hall of Fame[edit]

Highest comma density in a single sentence: In the U.S., feminism, when politically active, formerly aligned largely with the political right, e.g., through the National Woman's Party, from the 1910s to the 1960s, and presently aligns largely with the left, e.g., through the National Organization for Women, of the 1960s to the present, although in neither case has the alignment been consistent. (from Feminism, revision of 6 August 2010 - truly a magnificent achievement.)

Runner-up: It most certainly is not a fact, unless to your tapeworm mind, a study of solely 100 or so subjects, from a historically and demoraphically sub-saharan region such as the one cited, mauritania, with some from southern morocco, a country whose demographics, particularly in the south, has been impacted by an influx of sub-saharan africans or mauritanians, in most cases illegally or not, amounts to a mere "fact." (from Talk:Arabized Berber)

Most awesome NPOV argument: LL Cool J seems to think he's cool, and we seem to have no problem advertising that POV stance. Equazcion (talk) 21:56, 26 Mar 2012 (UTC) (from Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Abortion article titles)

Most innovative deletion argument: To admins: Do not listen to this hater. (from Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mihai Burciu)
