Wikipedia - Trigger Happy Censors?

Is it true you cannot link to an article on your own site, even if the content is relevant and helpful? That strikes me as a form of prejudice.

Okay all I wanted to do was link my SQLite Tutorial on the Wikipedia SQLite page so that someone could find some useful information. Careful, that "MY" is a crime.

Apparently, I cannot link it to my own site because it's me doing it - ad hominem

I thought the purpose of Wikipedia was to give out information. I'm okay with someone telling the content isn't relevant. That would certainly be a valid reason for not linking it. But, as I understand it, I'm somehow associated with the SQLite project, therefore, I'm not fit to judge the content?

Anyway, I hope your experiences with Wikipedia are better. I'm not too positive on it. My intend was only to distribute information. Please see for yourself.
