There are far more topics refuting the Big Money Breaks Dominion concept than there are topics espousing it. And most of those other topics refute it far more effectively than this one.

Sure, but the FAQ is much more high-visibility than those threads. Perhaps a link to one or two good threads would help.

No one has ever won by only buying treasures.
You should at least buy a few Victory cards!

But it is theoretically possible. If I buy only treasure and my opponents buy only curses, then I will win the game... eventually.

(They could also chapel away their Estates, but buying curses will end the game slightly faster).

Not a very useful example, since the opponent has to collaborate in order for you to win.

How about Stash/Harem vs. a table-full of Village Idiots?

Is this the Dominion Wiki? By all means improve it! IIRC, The Dominion Wiki was weak on strategy -- I know a well-thumbed Dominion card-by-card analysis wasn't linked to the Wiki.
