Should any of us declare war on vandals?
Aren't most vandals people who are just being juvenile, and likely if
shown how much fun being a productive contributor to Wikipedia is,
would rather have their edits last, influencing others?
Shouldn't we distinguish between fighting vandalism and fighting
vandals? It's not personal -- it's business. Right?
Isn't declaring war a gross violation of assuming good faith?
Please tell me why "declaring war" on vandals is a good idea.
Jimbo Wales declaring a war on vandals would be in my opinion as useful
as George W. Bush (idiot!!!) declaring a war on terror, it means
absolutely nothing and the distinction between vandals and vandalism is
an extremely blurry line.
