Trial by fire. If someone can't take the "abuse" of a standard RfA,  
they can't take the ongoing abuse that admins take all the time from  
vandals, trolls, and other trouble-makers.

Personally, I went through RfA just like a lot of people here. You  
don't see me whining about how I was bludgeoned over the head. RfA is  
supposed to be a tough process to get through.
