Greetings[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia!

Before making such a drastic change to a Wikipedia article, as you did to False Memory Syndrome Foundation, you should discuss your proposed changes first, on the Discussion page for the article. By Wikipedia policy, every article on a controversial topic or organization should have a section named "Controversy", in which opposing statements are aired, with references to publications (see WP:CONTROVERSY). By deleting the Controversy section from the FMSF article, are you trying to imply that no controversy exists? What information do you believe to be "incorrect", and what are your sources for that? Why do you think the Wikipedia article on FMSF should parrot that organization's own website? Wikipedia guidelines suggest the opposite: articles should be original and independent compositions, not quotes from official (and self-serving) sources. I have reverted your edit, but I encourage you to make your case on the Discussion page for each of your proposed changes. It might be a good idea for you to review Wikipedia policies and guidelines as well.

Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date.
