I agree with Scott about the paragraph rule. Another aspect to consider is that when a team cites a card on the wiki that starts or ends in the middle of the paragraph it can often be hard to find when one is looking in a long document that doesn't have a search function. I know this isn't that big of a deal, but I can remember several times in the past several years looking through a pdf that was hundreds of pages for five sentences of a card, and frustratingly finding it later when I realized the few words given were not the beginning and end of the paragraph.

Re: japoapst

Scott didn't make an argument.  Or at least not one that answered anything I said.

The problem you describe is a problem of poor citation practices.  If you include the page number of the card, then that's not an issue.  Also, that's what OCR is for.

Just a heads up to folks - there are two "gonzos" on the CEDA Forums. The one from the University of Iowa, formerly Wake, MSU, etc. is me, JGonzo. I am not sure who the other one is, but they seem like a nice person, and I look forward to meeting my e-doppleganger some day.

I see this issue as pretty cut-and-dry, and I doubt that Gonzo meant for this thread to go off on this tangent, so I don't want to draw it out much further.  However, part of me feels like there are other people in the community who might share your views, and I'd like to answer your arguments to hopefully persuade them against this standard for cutting evidence.
