Yeah, it was 99.9% ripped off. HeartGoldCall me a name 22:34, 19 July 2007 (CDT)

Do you mind if I RWify it? EG, we don't have NPOV... I'll leave the good meat in place, of course. Or you can take a shot at it. humanbe in 23:02, 19 July 2007 (CDT)
No, this is a communist essay. Anybody can edit it, and insert their own POV. HeartGoldCall me a name 00:18, 20 July 2007 (CDT)
Then what is the point? Seriously? humanbe in 00:23, 20 July 2007 (CDT)

Comment below written before HG's last comment, edit conflicted...

Edited some of the early stuff to make sense. We don't have 10,000 admins, and we have no history to speak of, as far as "things working well", etc. And, I simply chopped out the NPOV section. There's no way to easily port it over to a different wiki with different goals and history. Also, I question the point of having this "essay" on here at all. It has some good advice, of course, and nice sentiments, but those were already on the internet. Shall we port over every solution to every wiki problem anyone has ever posted and drop it into "essay" - where it does not belong anyway? I read about twenty articles on meatballwiki today that were interesting, should I have copied them here? Perhaps time would be better spent discussing solutions from other sites like this, and how we can learn from them, at rationalWiki:Community Standards? I bring this up and ask this instead of summarily deleting the "article", or "essay", or whatever it is supposed to be. humanbe in 00:23, 20 July 2007 (CDT)
I think the content will be useful to me and others. HeartGoldCall me a name 00:25, 20 July 2007 (CDT)
I'm concerned with its placement more than anything. humanbe in 00:31, 20 July 2007 (CDT)
I'm concerned that it will lead to the end of the wonderful and funny insults that i enjoy seeing so much, and eventually to the extinction of the resident troll/vandal. Resident vandal 00:35, 20 July 2007 (CDT)
Yeah, that would spoil everything... humanbe in 00:37, 20 July 2007 (CDT)
If I can't go crazy and call people names, how can I troll effectively? Resident vandal 00:38, 20 July 2007 (CDT)
