I've been getting warnings on my post for "lack of references".
No, I don't have any. I just thought I'd post this because it was (1) relevant, and (2) research I'd done myself, with (what I believe) to be accurate data, and (3) in support of the question/answer.
It's not like I have anything to gain by this answer (aside from the rep points, I guess...) so I'm not going to spend hours/days/weeks looking for corroborating research just to keep it on the site (why should I?) and so, frankly, as sad as I would be to see it go, I couldn't care less if moderators deleted it.
Not to mention that I think I already did my part by going through the trouble of finding my research from many years ago from my backups (which I had actually made in 5th grade, believe it or not...).
So I wonder: What would anyone gain from deleting my post?
It seems to me that the warning:
Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.
seems to be saying, rather,
Your unsourced material will be removed without a challenge.
because really, I don't see anyone "challenging" my post, and yet I keep on getting this (quite annoying, to be honest) warning.
So, do we really need to auto-challenge every post without a reference, even though there is no real reason to? Or could the warnings be made so as they would only pop up when someone actually challenges a post?
