...do you really want to be so unprofessional that you leave your personal comments in them?
 
"A Haunted house mystery game for Kinect. Looks like a combo of an on-rails shooter and a hidden object game. Will absolutely not get above three stars on Giant Bomb dot com, a website about videogames."
 
That was this game's previous headline. Really?

This stuff really annoys me, there's so much of it =| And I guess I'm just as guilty for not cleaning up after people in the wiki :(

I'm guessing that was written jokingly, but still, shouldn't be there.

I feel bad when I don't clean up bad wiki articles. I've started several times but I quickly realize that my editing mainly involves removing poorly written and opinionated comments, not actually providing new or better information so I give up. Anyone else have that problem?

Those sorts of subjective comments are not allowed. I clean them up when I come across them.

Its surprising how common things like that are. People ofter put in things like "in this wiki editors opinion this gun is rubbish". I always delete them straight away because it just looks stupid and tacky.

I really haven't come across any of this. Maybe I don't browse the wiki enough.
