Why can't people just raise their concerns directly with the
candidates, rather than using these petty concerns as a cudgel to
bludgeon them over the head with when they're at their most vulnerable
- asking for acceptance from the community?
Trial by fire. If someone can't take the "abuse" of a standard RfA,
they can't take the ongoing abuse that admins take all the time from
vandals, trolls, and other trouble-makers.
Personally, I went through RfA just like a lot of people here. You
don't see me whining about how I was bludgeoned over the head. RfA is
supposed to be a tough process to get through.
