Wikipedia:Wikipedia Articles are not Couches

||An editor thinks something might be wrong with this page. That editor won't actually make any effort to fix it, but can rest assured that they've done their encyclopedic duty by sticking on a tag.
Do not remove under penalty of law. Allow this tag to languish indefinitely at the top of the page, since nobody knows exactly what the tagging editor was worked up about.
If an Article appears neat and tidy but still has an Infobox saying the Article needs to be cleaned up, Be Bold and remove it. If an Article has Citations up the Wazoo, but an Infobox says it needs citations, remove it. These "Tags" (inspiration for the title) are often never removed when they should be because people don't think they're the best judgement for saying they're no longer necessary. But of course, use common sense here.
