Potential for abuse and the neutral point of view.[edit]

My largest issue with this proposition is that it might quickly me misused to violate the neutral point of view championed by the 5 (five) pillars of the Wikimedia Foundation, a tool such as this would easily attract trolls who want to promote their position in the government or use it as an elective tool 🔬 to showcase their own achievements and downplay others. Which further brings me to the question, what is “good”? Because that is subjective, I would argue that digging a well is a good thing, while someone from an area of the same country where water 💦 is plentiful would argue that his/her tax-money 💴 should've better been spent on vaccines. Some would say that a government that spends a lot on social welfare is “good” while others would say that allowing private companies to do that instead of using government money 💴 is “good”. The problem too is that a lot of charities already love to troll Wikipedia by promoting their non-notable good work 🏢. I just see so many ways how this can be abused and it's very well familiar that politicians love to troll the internet by inserting exclusively good information 🛈 about themselves while removing any criticisms, this project could easily be misused as a propaganda trolling tool.
