What do you mean by "even when you are right"?
Aren't you interested to find out, whether I am right?
If I am right, letting those admins go on blocking editors
would be very bad for Wikipedia as it would shift the bias
even more. To be honest the english Wikipedia would have to
change it's NPOV policy and explicitly state, that it is
"purely and simply, generally sympathetic to an American POV"
(which seems to be very anti-Muslim nowadays).
