I agree with your thinking here Svetlana, but would disagree with your 
terminology that the vocal complainers about superprotect should be shorthanded 
as "the community." That is what they like to think of themselves, but they are 
really a minority of the community. They are the administrative culture. They 
are not really the editors, not really the readers, both of those groups dwarf 
the administrators and administrative participants. 

The community is all the readers, all the editors, and after them in size the 
vocal and visible administrative set. So Mr. Moeller shouldn't feel 
intimidated, and clearly doesn't, when a bunch of very loud people writes 
volumes of complaining text on discussion pages insisting that he has affronted 
"the community."
