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[1] 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.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ "Understanding" here means understanding the spirit, not just the letter, of the policies and guidelines. Cluefulness is very different from wikilawyering
