I never thought Pending Changes will fix anything. It just gives more power to a select few without any real need.

If they wanted real reforms, they would focus solely on sourcing - no more sources less than a month old, only legitimate academic works, etc. That would get rid a lot of the crap and make it a real encyclopedia. Instead, Pending Changes wont really do anything but give a new award. Where is Malleus when we need him?

Haven't you figured it out? Consensus is meaningless. It is easy to game. When there is clear 2/3s for something, they will declare no consensus while claiming one when there is barely 50%. Democracy is just a front to try to legitimize their own bad actions.

Bloody silly idea. What's wrong with the latest issue of the British Medical Journal, ,say?

Oh, I forgot, the British Medical Association don't do their own printing so they're crap!
