Thank you for the call! I think it can only help, and the site will be better

Please do note: if you mean the wiki, I have been able to edit the wiki page,
with a newly created wiki account. Unless it has been manually approved
without me requesting it, then this doesn't sound like intended behavior?
Sorry if I misunderstand.
On a different note. While the comments system has not been ideal, I
think the point itself to allow and encourage people to ask questions, or
point out issues with the licenses, is still worth consideration... perhaps
by encouragement to use this mailing list, instead?
I'd suggest to replace the former "Log in to enter a comment" section
with a line like:
"If you have questions, please see the <link>FAQ page, or check the
license-discuss mailing list archive."
Just a suggestion. It's only one line. :)
