I agree. I don't think WMF has an appreciation of the scope of this problem
and how it detracts from the prigrammatic activities that they aim to
support in addition to its effects on volunteer morale and motivation
(which is a WMF global metric). I am hoping that some hard numbers might
get them to think about the status quo and how to improve it by a
significant, measurable percentage.
