So why didn't you bail out and what are you happy with? Not rhetoric. I 
am genuinely interested to know.

Thanks for the feedback. We know that editing the wiki for someone not 
in the edit group is way too complicated than necessary. The underlying 
problem required legal clarification which we have got recently. The 
wiki contributors can just require a click through signup but that 
requires some infrastructure work that hasn't done yet but it is 
something that needs to be fixed asap.
