"burden of proof"[edit]

I object to this standard. The policy here should refer to the burden of [providing sufficient] evidence as it has been a longstanding Wikipedia principle that the process of justifying something's inclusion should not be given an end-run around by appeals that go direct to the "truth" or "falsity" of the material. If WP:V is going to be linked to, then use the name of link or one of the name link alternatives that the community has approved.--Brian Dell (talk) 22:22, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
