"Outliers and influential observations should not routinely be deleted or automatically down-weighted because they are not necessarily bad observations.

For example, they may indicate that the data did not come from a normal population or that the model is not linear." "Regression Analysis By Example", 3rd Edition, Chatterjee, Hadi, Price. Jeffrey B.
