Yeah...but...there are real vandals after all.
(OT: There aren't barbarian hordes riding in from the North to ravage
the Empire. The worst anyone can do with Wikipedia, really, is piss
people off for a while (which I recognize is not meaningless). But
it's not physical property destruction or personal physical harm.)

Again, [[Wikipedia:Cleaning up vandalism]].
Simple. descriptive. Non
us/them. And it's already on the works
Didn't see this. It's perfect.
I prefer names that don't give credit to vandalism -- I mean, there's
going to be a segment of people that are excited about committing
crimes of annoyance in the world. If you clean up stuff without
crediting it as a crime, it makes it easier to deal with.
Further, as I've said before, I think *positive* rather than negative
names are healthier.
Pre-natal care and kindergarten preferable to juvenile detention
preferable to prisons.
So although I'll continue to advocate names that don't include the
word vandalism, I'd certainly support any compromise....
