"Because we can..."
not
"Because it is encyclopedic..."
or
"Because it is relevant...".


There isn't a day goes by without someone drawing attention to the dumbing down of Wikipedia. Many and varied reasons have been given for this and

readers with the slightest nous would have seen them over and over and over.

To me the "Because we can..." rationale for including irrelevant or unethical information is the antithesis of creating a good encyclopedia to a high standard.

The rationale has become increasingly prevalent over the years so instead of tearing my hair out any further I will take it easy, and visit only occasionally

to check my watch list. Moriori (talk) 04:04, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
