My apologies for being repetitive, but I'd like to just interject, again,
that in the absense of any evidence that the existing (alleged) policy
has ever been persuasively enforced, it would appear that this so-called
"major abuse potential" already exists, and likely has existed, for some
considerable time now.

If the existing policy were rescinded tomorrow, would that event result
in hoards of Bad Actors suddenly coming out of the woodwork and doing all
manner of evil things that they did not already feel adeequately empowered
to do yesterday with abject impunity?
