So Yann should we as a community just build something as a proof of
concept? If we are talking less than 250 USD per month, I am sure we can
scrounge up the money for a trial 6 month trial.

(Doc James is too modest to give himself credit, so it falls to me to point
out that the tool was his own idea; I witnessed the birth of it at
Wikimania 2014, when I connected him to Eran, who implemented the first
version of the tool before the end of the conference.)

*"My main takeaway from this discussion would be that it's good if there is
a neutral review option for actions by the T team (or the WMF in
general), such as an ombudsperson."*
I think this is a very good idea, last Saturday we talked about an internal
audit for this,
Yes, James' pricing doesn't match the actual cost.
We do not need to check all images uploaded to Commons, only the suspicious
ones (small images without EXIF data).
If we check 2,000 images a day (more than enough IMO), that would cost $7 a
day, so $210 a month.

The tenor of your arguments appears to be that Wikipedia is in fact
reliable, because it uses reliable sources, but that it pretends not to be
because it's too hard to prevent people writing article based on other
articles. This is not in accord with the facts. As I pointed out,
I've never seen a self-citing encyclopedia.
Given its open editing structure it would be so easy to game the system by
creating a series of cross-references. In short forbidding citing Wikipedia
on Wikipedia avoids such short-circuits.
No text is 100% accurate, Wikipedia relies upon the bet that
What I'm saying is this: setting meeting the reliable sources policy of
wikipedia as a condition for success, or not meeting that policy as
evidence of failure is ridiculous.
