To misquote George Orwell, all editors are equal but some are more equal than others. In my own case, after a prolonged disagreement with one particular article squatter over whether neutral point of view should include some material from the universe of centrist opinion and not just a compromise between garden variety animal rights sympathizers and bomb throwing lunatics, I dropped out for a long time then returned to a greatly reduced scope of editing, confined to topics which don't have a great amount of dissent (or at least whose advocates do not normally burn down schools and hospitals and assault people on the streets).

List of AR platform calibers[edit]

Even lists need sources, both to allow verifiability and to show notability. Is there any chance of sourcing that one? Felsic2 (talk)

Thanks for the tip. You're welcome to add references if you find any good ones but I'm totally snowed under at present. You might also want to tag the article and put a note on its talk page. Most of the articles I've seen were either slick (paper) magazines, blogs or had commercial bias. Seems like everybody and his brother is wildcatting ARs nowadays, almost like the heyday of post-WWII chamberings for Mauser 98s.
I don't know what has happened to my free time these days. I think this is probably the first time I've logged in to check my messages in a while. Actually I know what it is, it is trying to keep up with my real life workload. According to the NIH about 55% of those in my career field are age 55 or older :^( Trilobitealive (talk) 02:41, 19 December 2016 (UTC)
