This is only natural... an unsuccessful project does not attracts  
criticism. It is only because the project is *so* successful that it  
is unavoidable we will encounter opposition. And what was the basis  
for the project success so far? Wikipedia content policies, the  
strength of the community and the application of these polices by the  

So, on the face of criticism against WP and admins, we ought to  
continue doing what we have done successfully so far.

observed. People may need to adjust their expectations of WP and re-
