Hoi, Thank you for your sense of superiority.. the views on this list are "easy to have"and "not the big, difficult questions".
These are some big difficult questions I can come up with: - how will we deal with the existing bias that is Anglo-American.. - how will we deal with the existing bias that is articles in Wikipedia, our aim is to share in the sum of all knowledge.. - how will we deal with the 6% error rates that is in Wikipedia lists There are more issues but, hey you should not overload one email and deal with multiple issues.. So lets focus on what *you* consider the big difficult questions making this rebranding issue not so relevant..
