[hackerspaces] Wiki cleanup: what to do with unrelated pages?

Hi there,
(sorry, don't know your name)

I'm one of those who apparently don't seem to care... why not? Because 
hackerspace.org isn't THE wiki, it's just A wiki. What's on it, is just 
one place where I find my food for thought...

Also I know that maintaining a website (even a wiki) is a sh*tload of 
work. And as I'm not one of the members doing it, I humbly respect 
differences in opinions. I'm not as stuck up with my head in my own ass 
as to think that my idea is the one what will save the world (if all the 
others actually would do my idea). And I rather have a wiki and 
hackerspaces.org website that kind of feeds me, than rather have no 
HS.org wiki at all. And the people doing the heavy lifting and 
performing the boring jobs like housekeeping and maintenance... they're 
the ones that I support.

Okay... that's enough troll food for this post... next up is the 
constructive feedback. There was the question what should be on the 
wiki... This is what I read on the front page: This website is for 
*Anyone and Everyone* who wants to share their hackerspace stories and 
questions with the global hackerspaces community.

With that focus in mind... what shouldn't be on that wiki: all that 
isn't a hackerspace story or hackerspace question. So should there be 
room for theoritizing about what a better world would look like? Sure. 
But it's not the core of what this site is about (according to its own 
opening sentence). I would hope people who come here, are people who 
want to find help in building or rekindling their own (new or existing) 
space. I think that would be a nice axiom to start from. But then 
again... I'm not doing any weight lifting on the site. So whatever you 
do, thank you for doing it.
