Description Kizzle 2005-07-19 21:43:34 UTC
There is a strong community concensus on for adding a type of protection *only* on 
highly vandalized pages to prevent anonymous editing in order to alleviate work by the editors.  
George W. Bush, for example gets about 30 vandalisms a day, which is a lot to ask for editors to 
keep up with.  You can view the arguments both for and against at the above URL.
