Untitled[edit]

The existence/nonexistence/routing of the mythical SR 9823 was - and still is - in dispute. An earlier edit acknowledged it and discussed the discrepancies, not only in FDOT documents, but also on Miami-Dade County planning maps and commercially-available maps. For a more recent editor to gloss it over would be a major mistake - the discussion of "SR 9823" that was in the article needs to be returned. In fact, I might be bold enough to do so if neither the original author nor the person who rewrote it doesn't do it.147.70.242.21 22:39, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

This is a state road. Do you have any primary sources, or just guesses from other mapmakers? --SPUI (talk - don't use sorted stub templates!) 23:44, 11 January 2006 (UTC)
I rely upon multiple sources, including official county planning maps and FDOT documents. Your primary source is not infallable, either, especially in the history department. Now let's stop the sniping and work together. 147.70.242.21 00:49, 12 January 2006 (UTC)
Official county planning maps cannot be relied upon for State Roads. However, there is enough evidence that the road has been called 9823. --SPUI (talk - don't use sorted stub templates!) 02:12, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Boys, relying on a single source (or variation thereof) is reckless. If it's produced by human beings, there will be mistakes... and FDOT has been known to produce whoppers! If sources conflict, that conflict should be noted; otherwise it can be argued that it is POV. Dan (147.70.242.21) and Dan (SPUI), please remember why we're here... and SPUI/Dan, I would appreciate the same consideration for me as you would expect of others and use the same standard for yourself as you seem to demand of others (you've been known to use those same references that you disparaged above... Let's not turn this collaboration into a battle).

By the way, SPUI: by law (I do not know if it's State Code or County Ordinance), official Miami-Dade County planning maps must indicate all State Roads within the county. Regarding 9823: the existence/routing - current and past - are still in dispute, based on the several references that I have. B.Wind 01:59, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
