You would be entirely happy with the Yes page containing untruths?

People are entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts. The
more fact and the less opinion there is on both pages, the better off we
will all be. It's entirely reasonable to dispute facts (but not
opinions). This is why Wikipedia has "[citation needed]".

irrelevant. Do I? :-)
