Well, I'd like the Foundation to invest in such research, which is why I
brought it up here.
I cant think of several instances of donors' money being spent on things
that to me seemed less supportive of the Foundation's core mission.
Perhaps while the UK chapter pursues automated methods of assessment,
another chapter can apply for a WMF grant to pursue a more traditional
review effort. Maybe Wikimedia DC? I don't think this kind of research is
really the WMF's purview; for reasons everyone is familiar with, it's
important they remain distant from reviewing and managing content.
