You have every damn edit it makes. Surely you can work out something from that.

Your total "evidence" so far is "a lot of people are upset their
pictures might be deleted for not following policy as written." If
that's the "community" opinion, then "the community" is *just plain
wrong*. I'd suggest it isn't "the community", but rather people who
don't understand and/or don't want to understand WP:NONFREE and why
it's there (as you showed earlier in this thread).
