"Shoot sysops"... such fun.

"Shoot sysops"... such fun.

)

It is stablished that this ability is given restrictively and only to large wikis with large communities and a number of bureaucrats, when there's a need for it. This is to ensure that this feature is not abused, given that demoting sysops is sensitive. Currently ru.wikisource has just 7 sysops and one bureaucrat, that alone is enough for me to reject this request based on this RfC and past precedent.

I concur with @MarcoAurelio.

(I wonder if that's worth to document on https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Limits_to_configuration_changes but I don't know enough to judge.)
