Wikinews:For Wikipedians

I've added an additional point (perhaps not best-worded) as a response to the rather long 'discussion' on Pi zero's talkpage.

That's one of my pet hates any time I stray over to Wikipedia; even quite uncontroversial edits can provoke tens of thousands of words in discussion. As also noted on Pi zero's talk, they've such a maze of twisty little policies, that someone determined to oppose a change, or a source's inclusion, or ... whatever ... can just hammer away at it, churning out paragraph after paragraph, and assume they will "win" through volume of recycled electrons.

The same tactic here gets a "meh". --Brian McNeil / talk 17:12, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
