sympathetic point of view

The sympathetic point of view or SPOV is the opposite of the critical point of view. SPOV will be used by supporters of a position, person or group, or in making a self claim.

Pages or sections of pages written in the SPOV need to be identified as coming from a source, in the case of position statements on IPA pages, the source is assumed to be the editor who added that position.

Wikinfo.org encourages users to sympathetic point of view, as does openpolitics.ca itself for some pages, notably platform proposals, position papers, essays, slogans and planks.
