Snipping some very wise words (and not just for MONGO), there is one
important facet missing. MONGO's problems arise in no small part from
the extreme determination of a small group of lunatics, the 9/11
conspiracy theorists. These people are barking mad, and MONGO
enforced and enforces policy against them, in the process (and
probably at least half intentionally) proving to them that their mad
theories are both mad and negligible. They absolutely hate that, and
they would hate it whoever was the messenger.
Maybe there are others who would be more effective in keeping this crowd
contained. When someone has a mad theory attempting to disprove it is
rarely successful. Negligibility and notability debates fall into the
same basket of futility. A diplomatic contain and control policy may
work better with these people than direct confrontational enforcement.
