One point that's unclear to me is why the Wikimedia Foundation (or
Philippe, specifically) thinks this policy is necessary. There's been no
shortage of bad people on wiki projects since their inception. We
typically block disruptive accounts and move on. That's basically all we
can do and this newly documented process is really no different. I'm not
sure creating a shrine to the super-bad is prudent or helpful,
particularly when it means degrading community autonomy.
