Hi everyone

Why not have  a large advisory at the head of every wiki page which links
to the following content?

The content of a wiki page is:

1. as close to authoritative as possible but NOT AUTHORITATIVE

2. for guidance only: it is NOT MANDATORY

3. reflects only  the collective opinion of the editors of the page

4.subject to local knowledge and ground surveys which ALWAYS TAKE PRIORITY
OVER WIKI CONTENT

5. to be ignored only after careful thought and suitable tagging with a
note= xxx tag to explain

6.not to be used as a basis for automated edits: See policy on automated
edits which requires discussion with the community affected and the
reaching of a consensus.
