We deal with people spamming articles all the time, including
companies trying to astroturf, without office involvement or actions
which stretch community consensus past the breaking point.

We have probably a million articles on things fewer people know of
than this one.

If this were a normal admin, I'd haul out the usual "'Be bold' is too
far when a wholebuncha people yell foul at you".
