Thank you for the comment, Stranger. That was my basic thinking as well. My concern was the other well stated thought provided by Blast. Oddly enough, even though our main page hasn't been vandalized, this discussion has and frankly I think that very act weighs in on the side of caution.

Should the Main Page be protected?

If so, why? If not, why not? --RWSmith 14:15, May 2, 2007 (EDT) (P.S. Please sign your posts.)

I say no, because it goes against the spirit of wiki. If there is a plainly undeniable history of mainpage vandalism, then I say move everything to templates and protect the main page only, so that casual vandals won't...well, vandalise. Blast 10:23, May 12, 2007 (EDT)

YES!!!
