Steven, just a note, I'd be a bit more comfortable if you could clearly
demarcate whether you are doing this in your staff role or as a
volunteer. You are debating a few people who are opposing that policy using
your "Steven Walling (WMF)" staff account. And, not everyone new on Meta
might be aware of that postscript you just added here. It also doesn't help
that 4 of the 12 supporters for implementing the policy in its current form
are WMF staff.
