Wikipedia is not a democracy or an anarchy. Wikipedia is a cluocracy. Disputes are resolved in favor of whoever offers the best reasoning – not in terms of rhetoric but in terms of his or her understanding of the established policies and guidelines of Wikipedia and of knowing what works and what doesn't.
Some Wikipedia processes represent attempts to legislate Clue.
- "Understanding" here means understanding the spirit, not just the letter, of the policies and guidelines. Cluefulness is very different from wikilawyering
