Please require standards of spelling, of good grammar, and of lack of heterodox crackpottery.

Well, I hear you, but the standards we're setting are technical, not editorial. We don't want to centralize editorial standards in the hands of the KSF. We just want to make it possible for people to get their work in front of a larger audience without having to interact with Wikipedia's heterodox crackpots.

Besides, in a global project, one person's orthodoxy is another person's heterodox crackpottery. A truly decentralized network (like the Internet itself) is open to all, with editorial control limited to particular encyclopedias and apps, of which there should be an unlimited number of possible competitors.

Anyway, welcome, Doug!
