Accusations are not the way[edit]

The following advice in the essay is bad advice:

..instead of accusing someone of harming the project, you can instead accuse them of not knowing why they are harming the project.

Accusation is an ineffective way of sharing information. I propose changing the advice to:

..instead of accusing someone of harming the project, you can tell them that another way of contributing will help the project. Cuddlyable3 (talk) 02:11, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

A simple definition of "clue"[edit]

what to do?[edit]

What to do about clueless contributors? Assuming good faith, if someone adds wrong information using anon.access? Is there a place where one can put IP addresses in order to have them closely followed by admins?
