Do you really want to me download the latest
and make a local query? Sincerely, I don't understand any effort to
defend this stupid policy from English Wikipedia, like I don't understand
the recent xenophobic on the latest steward elections. This policy, the
votes like "generic vote against Anglo-American focus of all wiki-projects"
and some small points are to me the same subject: bias

I don't have time to talk in biased subjects, my free time is devoted to
develop libre content.
