No, no. There has to be a connection with a reality principle: bad
judgement leads to consequences. Otherwise we cannot get on with the big
project. 'Capricious' is managing to look down the telescope the wrong way.
There has _always_ been the principle that 'be bold' applies to editing, but
admin powers are to use with great caution. I mean, this goes back to the
days Larry Sanger was on the project!
