The following additional points are true, useful and relevant, but are not specifically about style:


Write only factual information.


Re: "Write only factual information." - Does this exclude anecdotes? Software engineering lacks both in theory and in empirical studies outside of machine performance issues. It's largely still a dark art. If we followed that rule, this wiki would be nearly empty. Anecdotes are almost all we have to go on.

No, it includes anecdotes as long as they're true. It excludes lies and fiction.
