Yeah, but there is a certain "class" of contributor that one shouldn't want
to recruit. The fact that a project doesn't independently act against him
(given what we know about his MO) tends to bring the competence of that
project's independent leadership into valid question. Sometimes when one
part of the community is this lacking in judgement, the rest of the family
"conspiring" to put them right is no bad thing.

I'm now actually wondering whether there is a structural problem in getting
lunatics like poetlister banned, or whether it is just the case that one
community (wikiversity) is seriously messed up.
