Believe me, we are all taking a very hard look at everything.

My point is not to blame you or to go into accusations or complaints of 
any kind.

Here is what I am saying to the entire community:

I am one of you.  I am here to work in my best efforts for the benefit 
of Wikipedia, for the benefit of our shared goal...

As I have said for years: "Imagine a world in which every single person 
on the planet is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge. 
That's what we're doing."

That's what we're doing.  You, me, all of us.

If you ever hear of anything like this again, please do not make the 
"bad faith" assumption that it is being "hushed up".  Assume that I 
would be outraged if I knew, and come and tell me.

I would really really appreciate it.
