Well, and I'm suggesting that you are busy dragging red herrings right over 
this issue.  It is pretty much tautologous that criticism of the 
administration of the English Wikipedia is criticism of the admins, plus 
Jimbo.  I think it is very naive about the Internet and its denizens to 
assume 'no smoke without fire applies'.  Criticism of admins does not imply, 
necessarily, that there are admins who deserve such criticism.  You do 
concede that some very difficult 'customers' are rightly banned from WP? 
And that subsequent comment from them may have a malicious component?
