I firmly believe Wikipedia is the best thing on the Internet.
Note: my username is a fake Latin version of my real last name. No more, no less.

Howicus's corollary to Hanlon's razor: Never attribute to trolling what can be adequately explained by inexperience.

And from that: Correct inexperience wherever possible, to make the trolls easy to spot.

In the interest of disclosure: I am an employee of the United States Department of Agriculture. However, my duties do not involve Wikipedia in any way, and I feel that my adherence to good editing practices will not be affected by this. I just plan to edit USDA-related articles, so I feel it's best to say this up front.
