As of today I am no longer editing the Wikipedia.

In a past year or so Wikipedia has become overrun with editors that devote themselves solely to enforcement of the policies. They tend to routinely destroy the content in the name of yet another WP:XXX compliance and it's nearly impossible to reason with them in their bureaucratic righteousness. It's hard to speculate what's driving them, but what's obvious is that they are missing a bigger picture.

The Wikipedia is all about collecting and structuring the information. Of course, the content needs to be properly sourced and formatted, but purging the information must be an action of an absolutely last resort. Deleting is easy, creating is hard.

Unfortunately too many people do not understand this. It's also unfortunate that Wikipedia's own editing policies are too ambiguous and they appear to endorse this destructive behavior. This needs to change, but given the state of affairs it is very unlikely to. For this reason I'm retiring the account.

Retiring the account, and starting a new one? Yes we need to purge unsourced content especially if it is potentially libelous or otherwise misleading, WP:BLP or otherwise! Perhaps you can start writing for some other site that doesn't care about these issues. JBsupreme (talk) 15:01, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Super Computer International[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Super Computer International requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Alpha_Quadrant (talk) 00:40, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
