PS About the external links: I do not doubt your motives, but placing links everywhere is considered spamming. Perhaps the other links should also be removed. Wikipedia has too many external links. Ideally external links should only be used as references or if they are completely crucial to a topic (e.g. AMA website on the page about the American Medical Association). Advice boards, support groups etc. come thirteen in a dozen, and should rely on Google, not Wikipedia, for their traffic. JFW | T@lk

Thanks for your message, and I'm glad you understand my point-of-view. I don't think placing the Anxiety Zone URL on two pages is a bad idea, but I have a habit of automatically reverting brand new users whose sole aim of joining Wikipedia seems to have been to increase site traffic. Trust me, it happens very often.
I think Wikipedia is even better served if you manage to include un-biased and well referenced information to the articles you know things about. After all, as an encyclopedia the project aims to provide a good general outlook on a most diverse set of topics. I could spend all my time adding references to medical journals, but the project is better served if I quote the most relevant points from these articles, so the reader understands the bigger picture.
Enjoy your work on Wikipedia. JFW | T@lk 00:33, 30 May 2005 (UTC)
