Controversy vs. Content
In my time at Wikipedia, I've found that the greatest source of friction is on the least substance. People fight more over how something is expressed than they do over what is expressed.
Peaceful editing is with a book in one hand, quietly referencing and expanding what is already there, and then moving on.
That said, I think I'll pick up a good book for a spell...

|For unflappable patience and civility responding to a mistaken block until the blocking administrator returned and lifted it with apologies. A comedy of errors and a holiday weekend delayed the correction much longer than would ordinarily occur. For good sense and optimism that could give a happy ending to anything, please accept a well-deserved barnstar. DurovaCharge! 15:34, 14 April 2009 (UTC)|
