I am not sure why this sentence has stuck in my head all morning, but it has.
Please decide whether this indivdual is sufficiently important to warrant an article.
This is from a discussion taking place on Wikipedia about the entry for Fred Wilson; it is being considered for deletion. I know that Wikipedia does not want to become a repository of about pages for every Tom, Dick and Harry in existence and they need to enforce some standards. But that phrase: “sufficiently important,” it still gets me. It has to be odd to watch a public discussion regarding whether or not you are “important” enough.
