You've missed the point.  On usenet you silently plonk trolls because
it's attention they crave.  On Wikipedia you let people know they are
not doing themselves any favours, because you want people to
contribute and be productive members of the community.  The longer I
am around Wikipedia the more I find myself discarding replies
unsubmitted, because escalation is not the way to go.
