Yeah, I see your point, and I think I can see good reasons both For and Against linking to the Wiki.
Now that I've thought about it some more, I think that I would actually be Against putting the Mary Sue link in there, if for no other reason than, as something that we're going to sign, having aspects of the Constitution be editable afterwards doesn't strike me as a good idea either.
The links that are in there already are more for helping newbies navigate around (such as the ones to the Wiki and the Original Series), and the specific pages linked, like the Permission one, seem unlikely to ever be as controversial as what exactly makes a Mary Sue. Also, trying to include all of the relevant details of something like the Permission article without just having the link to it, would probably end up making the Constitution a fairly unwieldy document.
Personally, I like the idea of updating the Constitution, because I think it is a great shame that new people currently can't add their name in support of it.
(Also, after re-reading my initial post, I think it seems rather abrupt. That wasn't my intention at all, and if it did seem rude to anyone, then I apologise.)
Though I definitely don't agree with the insinuation that right and wrong don't exist. There are such things as wrong opinions (anyone remember that weird guy that totally misused the phrase "gallows ... more

Well, although I understand and possibly agree with your concern, I'd like to find a better solution than linking to the Wiki - taking a semi-permanent document that's supposed to be Written In...... more

I'd like it set out that it is expected and encouraged that members of the community should speak up if someone is breaking a rule, and not leave it for "someone else" (which has tended to mean PGs... more
