Imagine a world in which every single person on the planet is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge. That's what we're doing. — Jimmy Wales
Since the beginning of time, the ignorant had always screamed the loudest, herding the unsuspecting masses and forcing them to do their bidding.

Notability Guideline was created to fight against semi-vandal intent to create an article for every 'interesting' person including porn stars. As a judgment on notability cannot be established without having a particular point of view, the use of the guideline for those purposes other than fighting vandalism, such as a basis to play "wannabe tin-pot dictators", violates Neutral Point of View policy by enforcing one point of view onto others. Not finding a creative way to save something potentially useful is a sin against Wikipedia by not leaving the judgment on its notability to the test of time. — Yiba, 2013
