some IP blocks apparently lifted, but, deletions remain, so don't trust the Simple English Wikipedia - if they like what we write, they can nab it from here (GFDL) and credit it to Consumerium

However in its present form the project cannot possibly serve that purpose, as it uses too poor a vocabulary and has no mission to be comprehensible or apply any clear standard or [[defining vocabulary]] discipline.  It also refuses to consider or even discuss [[user demographic]] or [[user psychographic]] methods used in real world projects (like the [[user story]] approach) and has even been effectively taken over by a known [[inquisitor]].  Thus it has no role in Consumerium, and has effectively become one of the worst [[enemy projects]] - something that is not a basis for translation, for definition, and is driving off its most experienced contributors for what amount to [[ad hominem]] [[conflicts between users]] which arise solely out of [[witch-hunt]] tactics.

It is now one of the least [[troll-friendly]] projects and those who are part of its [[sysop power structure]] should in general be [[driven off by trolls]] so they do not also destroy ''this'' project, or any [[essential projects]] we care about.

Interestingly, it has reverted some of its [[IP block]]s, but legitimate but deleted material is not restored nor visible for ordinary user discussion, so the effect of this is simply to make the SEW somewhat more GFDL compliant, as text can be retrieved from these previously blocked IPs and used in much more responsible projects with no [[sysop vandalism]] which are more [[troll-friendly]].  Whether those in its [[sysop power structure]] need to be [[driven off by trolls]] so they do not also destroy ''this'' project, or any [[essential projects]] we care about, might even be discussed someday if there is a serious examination of the issues regarding [[Simple English]] and the degree to which Wikipedia abandons [[GodKing]]s to become [[troll-friendly]].  This seems unlikely in the near future.

In the meantime, to submit any serious [[glossary]] or [[Simple English]] material directly to the SEW is to make it possibly unavailable in future, as with [[social network]], [[contact network]], [[power network]], etc., which are rather essential terms for discussing any [[power structure]] rationally.  Unlike the SEW, [[Consumerium]] should deliberately explain these issues in the simplest terms so that anyone can help resolve a [[political dispute]].  This is not possible of course if these terms are not even defined in [[Simple English]], so, there will remain terms that by editorial policy are required to be part of [[Consumerium]] but which are subject to arbitrary out-of-process deletion at SEW or indeed any [[Wikimedia]] project ruled by their [[GodKing]].

In brief, avoid.  Any project that deliberately wastes the time of Consumerium contributors is one of the [[enemy projects]] until it proves otherwise over a fairly long period of time, and actually engages the facts of governance and editorial issues we need resolved to cooperate with them.
