For me, the important question is: how do we prevent
becoming an "increasingly hostile environment".
My own view is that we should trust the ArbCom to rid us more quickly of
poisonous personalities. Of course this is
We're really trying very hard to achieve this in the face of Wikipedia's
remarkable popularity, honest!
But we really do put up with an astounding amount of
absurd behavior in the name of openness.
Personally, one thing I'd hope to achieve from the arb com is sufficiently
neutralising the toxic contributors enough that contributors like Stirling
Newberry don't say "to hell with it."
This is actually ridiculously tricker than it may look from outside.
