Denser but no better[edit]

No. First, "safe space" gets used, which, while we never would've thought about it while writing it, should probably add today to What Wikipedia is not: Wikipedia is not a safe space. It is a place where you may be challenged, required to back up your assertions, and may ultimately not win an argument. It is not a "safe space" where you might be free from conflict; it is a place designed around conflict. Secondly, once again, Wikipedia is not "people-centered", it is content-centered. People are permitted insofar as they help to improve Wikipedia content, and are unwelcome the moment they do not. Wikipedia is not, and shouldn't be, "people-centered". Our one and only goal is high-quality content; people are auxiliary to that. They are necessary for it, but only permitted so far as they help to create and maintain it.
