Well, you are making a very complex issue out of something that was
presented in a way that seemed rather simple. If you want to get into
weighting things... Well, that is a whole other discussion, no? What
about the kind of sucky articles that we've approved hoping comments
would even them out? What about the articles which aren't strictly
accurate? What about rants in commentary? How deep do you want to go?
