Again no one suggested that. However it should not allow itself to be
used as an attack vector against wikipedia. Well not unless you would
consider it legit for the English wikipedia to be used as an attack

I understand attempts to cause disruption when I see them. But no
matter. You can't at least complain that you were not warned. As a
project it might well have some value but the people you have involved
and the direction taken so far suggests it won't be.
