|This essay contains the advice or opinions of one or more Wikipedia contributors. Essays are not Wikipedia policies or guidelines. Some essays represent widespread norms; others only represent minority viewpoints.|
The Wikipedia philosophy can be summed up thusly: "Experts are tools for the POV-pusher."
For some reason people like Nicolaus Copernicus and Galileo Galilei who spend lifetimes learning everything they can about, say, the Universe—and indeed, advancing the body of human knowledge—get all pissy when their contributions are edited away by Pope Urban VIII who heard somewhere that an Axis of Evil was involved. And they get downright irate when asked politely to engage in discourse with Urban until the Axis of Evil theory can be incorporated into the article without passing judgement.
