- To be a check on Jimbo so he doesn't become a dictator
- To make sure Wikipedia remains a free, open, and self-governing project
- To defend the essential policy that Wikipedia is NOT a bureaucracy
- "Follow the spirit, not the letter, of any rules, policies and guidelines. Disagreements should be resolved through consensual discussion, rather than through tightly sticking to rules and procedures."

|“||Rules and regulations... cannot be endowed with the fixity of rock-ribbed law. They are meant for the average case, and must be applied with a certain degree of elasticity.||”|
Rules can be broken and ought be broken but there are certain principles that should never be without justifiable reasons:
Summary: Verifiable... means that any reader should be able to check that material added to Wikipedia has already been published by a reliable source. The burden of evidence lies with the editor who adds or restores material. Any material that is challenged... needs a reliable source... If an article topic has no reliable, third-party sources, Wikipedia should not have an article on it. Any edit lacking a source may be removed...
Jimmy Wales has said of this: "I can NOT emphasize this enough. There seems to be a terrible bias among some editors that some sort of random speculative 'I heard it somewhere' pseudo information is to be tagged with a 'needs a cite' tag. Wrong. It should be removed, aggressively, unless it can be sourced. This is true of all information...
Editors should try to familiarize themselves with all three.
