Good question. This was described as a "hit

the question of how we deal with users who have strong Islamist

Why should "users who have strong Islamist points of view" be treated
any differently than anyone else? As long as these user follow the
rules and work within the model of NPOV, etc., why should there be a

I do think we should always be open to reconsideration of a decision
on any particular issue. Consensus once does not mean consensus
