would ask how "whether we can verify that they are the
subject" is in any way a substantively different issue than "whether
we can verify their identity," >>
Of course! It's the entire point!
You don't verify my identity in order to approve of edit I make. You review
my edits and say OK I won't revert that it looks good.
I have no particular position of privilege on any article (afaik).
However the Subject of a BLP you are claiming should be treated differently
than all other editors. That is, we should take their word as a source in
order to modify their own articles. And not only should we do that (which we
already do in part), but we should do it, without even the ability to
determine that they are *in fact* the subject of that BLP in the first place.
Yes verifying some editor's identify is quite different from verifying that
they are the Subject of the Article.
