I understand the motivation for saying this, but I think you
misunderstand the goals of the people attacking WP; they are not after
individuals, they want the project as a whole to fail, or to come under
their control in some way. If a dozen prominent Wikipedians leave, then
the attackers will go after the next dozen, and so forth. Go and read
some of the conspiracy stuff at WR; Jimbo's use of the term "lunatics"
is not an exaggeration! Is that really who you want deciding what goes
on at WP?
Appeasement is not going to work.
