Your comments reminded me of one of my favorite quotes (immortalized as a quip in our Bugzilla installation at <https://bugs.wikimedia.org/>): "creating a wiki is like creating a baby: yes you should have a good reason to create one, but if you don't for whatever reason, you should have an _extra_ good reason for killing one." :-) MZMcBride _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
