For me, the important question is: how do we prevent Wikipedia from 
becoming an "increasingly hostile environment".

My own view is that we should trust the ArbCom to rid us more quickly of 
poisonous personalities.  Of course this is
non-trivial, etc.  But we really do put up with an astounding amount of 
absurd behavior in the name of openness.
