Thank you for calling this out. You raise an extremely valid point. I
have asked Luis to follow this project, so I am including him here so he
can follow. I'm also including Michelle, who historically has been
dealing with these kinds of reports for legal.
Appreciate your raising the issue,

same in future to make it easier for people who do not want to discuss
Commons or who feel inundated with the subject matter to filter these
messages. Also, if you're using Google Mail, you can "mute" a thread
(under the "More" options after you open the thread) and you won't see

Quick notes about an interesting development:
* User:Rillke on Commons has started prototyping a gadget that could
be used to simplify reporting of various issues with images with a

feature, as well as continued feedback and encouragement (WikiLove?)
