Subject: I can see where else they could be coming from

That is, the staff probably need to come up with some kind of policy to shut down potential People We Don't Like Wikis ("you definitely shouldn't harass them *wink*"). It's reasonable to try to have a policy against that sort of thing given the state of the internet.

And then, due to a combination of limited staff resources (meaning not wanting to get drawn into arguments about how our page about $random_person is fine, really) and concern about scandal/advertisers/..., they probably went and tossed down a broad policy that stuff like the Jay and Acacia pages clipped the edges of.

Like, as seen in this here thread, it's obviously not quite a good solution to the problem they might've been trying to address, but I can at least understand it.
