Talk:Queer Bash Email Incident

This is the discussion page for "Queer Bash Email Incident". This page is where editors and readers discuss what content should and should not be in the article, and respond to others' questions and comments. Unlike articles' content pages, editors should only add material and respond to others' postings, and never make deletions. This page is intended to record the history of any debate, as well as work towards resolving it.

All commenters here should take credit for their words. When you make a change, suffix your posting with --~~~~ This will automatically record your username and the time of posting. Doing this helps seperate comments, and is consistent with Wikipedia guidelines.

"Noteworthy Emails" link

I have deleted the link to the fulltext of referenced emails.

Members of the wiki board are considering how to or not to archive documents like public emails. The relevant public discussion is taking place at Talk:Noteworthy E-mails. Please have your say, and please have it there.

An issue with including them in the Mainspace is that they are unlike articles, which are named and written by a community, and revised over time. Historic documents are not editable. Making pages exclusively for them, I think, is distinct from and worse than editors' excerpting of useful text, which is great practice.--05jl 00:19, 16 March 2006 (EST)
