The Core of NPOV is that there is something that
to all sides, or at least equally unpalatable to all.
This fails when a "side" is not people whose interest is in writing an
encyclopedia, but an outside pressure group who don't understand NPOV
and don't care.
I am beginning to wonder, whether the "good guys" are still interested
in writing an encyclopedia. It seems to me, that acting "on principle"
(no censorship - whatever that means) in this case is destroying more
than it adds. I sometimes even get the impression, that people enjoy
the strength of the inside pressure group ("you are offended? good!
If you change the pictures, I'll revert and block you. :-b").
Do we have a neutral and unbiased article, when it is necessary to
protect pages and block editors en mass?
I don't think so.
