Hi @Multichill - this is a very interesting idea, but it goes against all of our privacy concerns with the Wikipedia community and the movement in general. I believe that this idea has come up several times over the years, but because of privacy concerns, nothing has been done with it (marking as declined).

That's just FUD. Can you provide links where this has been discussed before? Can you explain exactly what the privacy concerns are? I'm not buying a declined without a decent conversation about this.

Hi @Multichill - this is a very interesting idea, but it goes against all of our privacy concerns with the Wikipedia community and the movement in general. I believe that this idea has come up several times over the years, but because of privacy concerns, nothing has been done with it (marking as declined).

Cool suggestion, but we won't have time for this type of effort (in the Search team) for quite a while. :(
