As if to prove the point -Plan 9 Publishing article nominated for deletion

(5 comments | Leave a comment)

As for deleting information within an article. It's reasonable to keep the basic article a reasonable length giving more wordage to the major aspects of the subject. However there is no reason why information considered less important should be deleted: just move it further down in the article. This is basic journalism!

Or, condense the less important information and make it a link to a treatment in more detail elsewhere (on or off Wikipedia).

As long as the pro-deletion policy seems to prevail, there seems little point in spending one's energy to add more information.
