I would have to give this final point a big "citation needed" tag.
Pete, it does seem that since Lila arrived a lot of the tension between
Foundation and community has gone. I've several times heard her talk of
the need to respect the community because Wikipedia is nothing without it.
You wrote above: "As I understand it, we are still very much in the
'Superprotect disaster' era -- one which began under the same Executive
Director we have today."
Superprotect was implemented just after Lila arrived, but it was a decision
of Erik's. The tensions behind it were very much a product of the pre-Lila
era, and had been growing for years. It appeared that Lila quickly
understood that it needed to go.
