Positive Point of View (PPOV) is used on GetWiki's information/encyclopedic "primer" pages to present a subject or concept from a the perspective of a proponent, a favourable, affirmative light, but also equally encourages critical perspectives to be presented. Criticism of that same subject or concept can be placed in sections within the same ariticle, or on a separate, well-linked critical, or "against" page. This approach was initiated on Wikinfo in 2003 as a reaction to Pseudopedia's "Neutral Point of View". As a result, "Sympathetic Point of View" allowed points of view in Wikinfo articles which Wikipedia might have censored, and some it did censor. PPOV follows this same spirit for GetWiki.
