Who??? resigned AND asked their accounts be removed?  Gee whiz.

Which articles are they?  It makes sense for FAQ articles to be under a 
meta user (like the cubes one you cited) -- but not articles expressing 
POV or opinion.

I put the about/faq stuff I was doing under meta-user "evolt.org" user 
following someone else's example, with the idea that anyone from admin 
could (and would) go in and edit it, wiki-style, as needed.

BTW... I am on board w/ the cubes because they are a form of karma, 
right... but they only represent quantity, not quality. (yes, yes, the 
ratings....) Yet I'll be so excited when I earn my second cube!!!
