As discussed here, {{fact}} tags are superfluous and unnecessary in articles about persons unless the information they are attached to is derogatory or controversial. If you have reason to believe the information is false, you are welcome to edit the article accordingly, preferably with an explanation in the article's talk page. --mwalimu 22:16, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

So, you're basically saying that if there is any negative information about a furry, it must be cited, but if it's positive, it can be made up with no worry about citation. Is this a wiki or just a propaganda vessel?--KentuckyFriedGunman 03:19, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Citations are always a good thing to have when available, whether good, bad, or neutral. Any information posted about a furry, regardless of how it reflects on them, will be removed if it is verifiably false, and is likely to be removed if it is obviously suspect. We also allow a fair bit of latitude for people to be represented as they would wish to be if there are no particular legal or ethical issues from them doing so, in areas such as gender identity. The accuracy of the information presented here is largely dependent on the good faith of the editors who provide it, and in practice that system has worked reasonably well. We do not allow Wikifur to be used as a venue to harass others or to perpetuate drama, which is why we hold negative and controversial information to a higher standard of verifiability. --mwalimu 16:16, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
