1. Why not keep T&S out of everything? Oh, THAT'S RIGHT, the supposedly autonomous self-governing Wikipedians can't (or rather don't want to) handle the serious cases.Here's a third way:
* WMF T&S to stay out of almost everything
* ARBCOM improved
* Basic process always applied: No secret evidence, Defendants always allowed to participate, No secret complainants
2. LOL. Hasn't this been a promise at every single election? We're only one year on from the time when it was fashionable to say ArbCom was redundant and should be disbanded, EVEN BY CANDIDATES! They didn't have a clue how ill-equipped they were to run shit, because nobody there gives a damn, not really.
3. Before talking utter bollocks, why not check the manual? Secret trials and confidential complaints have always been allowed at ArbCom. And I bet if I looked, I could find cases where defendants were gagged. I definitely know trial in absentia is a thing.
Didn't this bloke used to be a serious critic?
Fucking joke is what he is.
No different to all the other dreamers who think Wikipedia can be fixed if only you ignore BASIC AND OBVIOUS ISSUES THAT HAVE EXISTED FOR YEARS AND NEVER BEEN SOLVED.
If they could fix it, they would have.
