I can't help but feel this is impossible to implement. It relies on the
same blind faith in technology that facebook has used to justify doing
nothing about the misinformation.

Stallman specifically mentions that holocaust denial would be allowed
but that endorsements/peer review would allow people to evaluate the
truthfulness of the article. Then says modified version would lose all
endorsements. So if people keep adding useful information to an
article, it might keep losing all it's endorsements. Holocaust denial
might appear to have more endorsements in that situation. Even if have
some way to handle that, not all endorsements are equal. If 20 medical
doctors are saying people are getting sick because of X and 50
employees from company that makes X say the cause is undetermined, I
think I'd trust the doctors.

If you can make it, more power to you.
