To put this in context, we routinely have demands on the talk pages
(and by email) for American college fraternities for complete removal
of any representation of their symbols, that the article be written
from a sympathetic POV, that non-members be prohibited from editing,
et cetera...

Of course, a lot of them are making *reasonable* requests rasther than
demands for total editorial control. Tim did say "the moderate
petitioners", not "the ones we can reject out of hand."
