    Gah! Enough with these stupid euphemisms!

    "Voting" has changed to "finding consensus", but the process remains
    the same. User conduct regulation is called "dispute resolution", but
    focuses mainly on finding a pseudo-judicial basis to ban troublesome
    editors. The pseudo-judicial body that bans troublesome editors is
    called the "arbitration committee", even though they're prohibited
    from actually carrying out arbitration by their official charter.

Exactly.  Rebranding doesn't change a thing.  The problems remain.  Let's change it to "Articles for Reorganization" just for the fun social interaction.~~~~Pro-Lick
