That would be excellent then: we would be able to waive
'assume good faith'
for whole scads of editors we come across. What a relief! Maybe I have
misjudged the little critters.
Maybe you haven't seen my userpage. I freely admit to strong
opinions, when I edit articles on subjects on which I have strong
opinions, I do so in good faith and I am, to the best of my ability,
neutral - but I still have strong opinions, and that means it's best
if someone else has a look.
Strong opinions and good faith are absolutely not exclusive, and being
aware of the subconscious bias of another user is not the same as
failing to assume good faith.
