I would hope RFA is good enough to weed out
people stupid enough to
respond to such things...
Hey, you wanna hear a really stupid thing *we* could do? The exact
same thing! We write emails to a bunch of inactive admins, pretending
to be disgruntled wikipedia-haters asking for their accounts, and if
they bite, we ban and de-admin them! It would be like a sting! Or
entrapment! Or something! We'd be like the Dirty Harry/Lethal
Weapon/Archetypal-amoral-movie-cop of the internet!
Or not... whatever...
Yeah, that would be entrapment. I know of no Wikipedia policy banning
entrapment, but it might not be the best idea ever...
