But can you actually _show_ that the quality of new articles went up
when anon article creation was disabled? Sampling of new articles
beforehand wasn't done and AfC didn't exist before anon article creation
was disabled so there's no data to compare the current situation to. I'm
not going to make an argument based just on my subjective opinion.
That's my whole _point._ As an experiment it was a complete failure
since it produced no usable data. Perhaps by reversing it and actually
collecting data this time we'll be able to salvage something from it.
