This is exactly why I posted the root node - I felt that I set a precedent which I in retrospect (that is, the 4 hours between editing the other node and posting this root node) felt needed much more discussion. I'd like the editors to be janitors, but a case like mine would come up sooner or later anyway and thus I felt some public discussion of the matter was in place.
There seems to be much consent here that such content-editing should not take place here - I welcome that.
What the future will bring for controversial nodes is still a bit unclear for me, since I have not yet heard back from
vroom about any of this. Personally, I'd feel better with
the permission to possibly take a node offline until vroom has had his word over it, but on the other side the voices favoring a "they have to come here first" strategy,
would make my life much easier, as I wouldn't have to worry
about whether a node was even that borderline.
