> Thank you for your message. Your project has a lot of value for this community. Too
little effort is currently being dedicated to designing, testing and calibrating tools
such as ORES, even though they have huge implications -- and potential payoffs -- in terms
of the quality of community governance (i.e., striking the right balance between inclusion
of good faith editors, and exclusion of malicious ones).
> You might be interested in the attached paper (just published), which makes exactly
this point, and calls for projects such as yours.
> So thanks for undertaking this, and good luck with it! :)
