It's hard for me to even answer this question, since it assumes a
perspective to editing Wikipedia that I don't subscribe to, and don't want
to. Why on earth would you even approach editing on Wikipedia in terms of
"making" the "losers" "capitulate" to us so that we don't get "screwed"? I
really would encourage you to rethink this, because you seem to think that
policy ought to be written to accommodate this paranoid attitude that other
people here don't share.
