Please do repeat it jay. I agree with the sentiment. I don't know of
anyone here who disagrees.
Where the disagreement lies is on the steps needed to make it a safe and
pleasant place to work.
Banning all anonymous edits may well make it a safer and more pleasant
place to work, but we do not take that step. No, I'm not using a
strawman here; I'm just demonstrating that there are a range of possible
actions to address the issue. Not all are good.
The point under discussion is whether a blanket ban of certain sites is
a good step to take.
