The basic thesis is that Wikipedia has too many boxes. Userboxes were bad enough, but now we have the infobox virus, and dozens of superfluous navigation boxes spouting up all over otherwise decent articles. We have a multitude of boxes on talk pages claiming ownership by some project that typically has contributed nothing to that article, except of course the box. We have boxes appearing at the top of an article to warn us of 1004 different things.
Enough is enough. No more boxes. The fightback starts here.
As a wikinewbie, but with a bit of editing experience, I did my first "contribution" page, listed the references and found that a box had snuck up and enclosed them without my consent or any markup characters that I can see. Now my page looks ridiculous. The boxes have taken on a life of their own.
