What's the point? Are we running out of mops?
Yep. Or more to the point, the mop-provider is saying "when people
start actually using the mops, I'll give out some more" or something.
People make false assumptions based on the fact that we have 800 or so
admins. If we only had 100 admins, apparently we would still get
nearly as much work done, but people would make different judgments
Fwiw, I don't have a problem with having marginally active admins. But
you do relatively often see comments like "we already have 800 admins,
we don't really need any more", to which someone always replies "see
the copyvio backlog". That discussion *would* work better if there
were only 100...
