Perhaps it's you were aren't listening.  Because we already know how "one 
might produce a body of work *upon which* one can rely".

That's not the problem however with your "suggestions".
Rather, you want to *change* Wikipedia into that sort of work.  Or rather I 
think actually you'd have wished it had been that way from the get-go.

But it wasn't, it's not, and it's not really likely that this sort of 
approach is one in which you'll find a result that you would wish.
Doesn't it seem to you like this sort of method, is not likely to work?
I mean, posting your grievances here on Foundation-L ?
