Access to sources of information

I am not sure. In dealing with a reference the first five steps are:

  1. Knowing about it
  2. Getting access
  3. Actually accessing it
  4. Understanding it
  5. Processing its content

Most of those that are able to understand and process its content will already have access. It is very likely that there wll be many among those not-having-access-now-and-wanting-access that they will use access the same way as references are now often used (by those who did not read them): as ammunition. Unless there is an effective way to select deserving editors (and not by popularity) this is likely to be counterproductive. - Brya 05:58, 10 December 2009 (UTC)
