Given that, unusually where suffrage is being determined, the closing date
for the required level of activity is still over a month away (rather than
in the past), and that no differentiation is made between minor wikignome
edits and major copyedit rewrites, then I would expect *anyone* who wanted
to ensure their ability to vote would be able to do so by finding 50
spelling and / or grammar mistakes. ie, imho, not a difficult hurdle to
leap by any stretch of the imagination.
