So, like, there's this huge controversy on the Hildegarde Von Bingen article about whether or not she should have an "infobox" and which one to use. Makemi, because of her Early Music POV-pushing, would like for her to have a composer infobox. The rabid Catholic contigent would like very much for her to have a "Saint" Infobox. You can see in the history that they've come close to breaking the sacred 3RR rule several times over this.... and that Makemi's lame excuse (to make up for her POV-pushing ways, presumably...) is that

Anyhoo, they're missing the point: Hildegard is not a Saint: She's been beatified, but not canonized. So, she doesn't qualify as a Saint. So, your userbox problem is solved.

Not that anybody at Wikipedia could think of bothering to verify any of this information before opening their POV-infested mouths....

Now, the next step is to lobby to get the "composer" Userbox on the article, right Mak???

That's easy; you change the rules to make her eligible.
