Lazy internet Austrians

I had an exchange with a Wikipedia economics editor once where he complained about "internet Austrians" that dominate economics posts on the online encyclopedia of record.

So where are all you guys on this one? It's hard to see but it says "It is proposed that this article be deleted because of the following concern: Pure OR, no sources. Page has existed for nearly a month with no attempts to improve or expand." The entire post consists of "Regime uncertainty is when business is tepid due to unknown governmental influences. Business tends to invest and grow in stable economies. A government making big changes in the economy produces uncertainty and tend to increase business trepidation, which freezes job growth and overall business growth." What's the matter guys? You can only spend time defending semi-plausible arguments but not muster any energy to defend over-emphasized ones? You usually see the excessive Wikipediaing on controversial topics - is it that nobody talks about this so it's not worth talking about? I don't get it:
