Delusionism

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Delusionism is a philosophy held by tropers who pursue a middle ground between the attitudes of deletionism and inclusionism (and possibly exclusionism). Delusionists hold that labels of "deletionist" and "inclusionist" hinder the development of balanced policies regarding what should be on ATT, and often favor the use of precedents to establish trustworthy grounds for vetting articles.

In practice, it would seem that most people do indeed tend to fall into the deletionist and inclusionist groupings. Some say that a central view to deletion policy would lead to a more relaxed editing atmosphere, but others yet question whether that is a valid concern for ATT.
