Sheesh, let's cut back on the melodrama a notch, eh? I'm not suggesting banning
white people. I'm not demanding that female users must identify themselves by
writing in a pink font. What I am saying is that editors who enter into
non-trivial interactions on the English Wikipedia should be obliged to have a
handle that can be grokked by speakers of the English language.
