Nope. Foundation can't post a counter notice. It can reject the DMCA
notice but since this isn't a legal fight that impacts any of it's
interests it has no reason to do. The initial poster can of course
file a counter notice but that wouldn't actualy force the WMF to
restore the content since we are free to keep it deleted under the
"we've had enough of being spammed in random web campaigns" clause.
