Let's comment on the issue, not on the people
It's true that there wasn't lot of time to prepare this and that what
Thomas asked for, replace live site using a static content, is not so easy.
While there are many benefits (especially, mind the traffic - full content
overwritten with extra banner) from having a static page instead of live
prepare such a site so fast and properly test if shutdown of whole english
wikipedia for that time, wouldn't break other systems. Also it would be
much harder to keep the content of static site updated regarding to request
made during the blackout.
I believe that operation team did a great work during the protest and I
know myself that lot of them spent whole night just by keeping an eye on
the whole cluster which was heavily impacted by this action and needed many
immediate updates done by them.

Personally, I decided to stop responding to Thomas Dalton some time
ago. Many of
his rants seem to be trolling. Typical college freshman,
knows more than the rest of us.
