Commitment to WP:AGFEdit

Unless there is clear evidence to the contrary, assume that people who work on the project are trying to help it, not hurt it.

What the world would be like without WikipediaEdit

Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought?… Has it ever occurred to your, Winston, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now?…The whole climate of thought will be different. In fact, there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking—not needing to think. - George Orwell,1984

User essayEdit

Wikipedia is not a venue to show off extrasensory perceptionEdit

It is inappropriate to speculate or claim to know that another editor has or has not read a source, read the article, or read a guideline. In some cases they may have done so but may not interpret it the same as you interpret it. They may have read it quickly. It might be that they are not as intellectually brilliant as you. Or it might be the case that you have yourself misinterpreted whatever it is which you contend that they have or have not read.Wikipedia is based upon reliable information and reliable sources do not support the contention that anyone, therefore you yourself, have a telepathic abiity to determine what another editor may have done at some other place and time.

An alternative approach you may find useful would be to make statements similar to these examples: "As noted in the (source, guideline, etc) it is the case that X + Y =Z" "You might recall..." "As you may remember..." " (WP:GUIDELINEx states that XY and Z."

The bottom line is that your comments, whether on edit comments or talk pages should address the Wikipedia content, structure, sources, policies and implementation of policy in accordance with the WMF mission rather than the habits, knowledge, skills, abilities, or lack thereof, on the part of other wp editors, to whom you owe a duty of civility and presumption of good faith,
