Ed Poor <uncle_ed_p...@yahoo.com>, Fri, 22 Aug 2008 06:06:50 -0700 (PDT):Here's a radical proposal to serve our conservative cause.
Implicitly put all new user accounts on probation. If they don't get
enough approval votes from sysops, suspend or ban their account.
We don't want stealth accounts lying around: hundreds of user names
which no one can remember. If they are not REGULARLY contributing good
work - and none of us will vouch for them, show them the door!
An easy way to do this: place a one-month block for "Inactive
Account". In the rare case that they are legit (but have been on
vacation), they will email the blocking sysop and persuasively request
