Determined effort to link in the face of warnings is
only a behavior problem
once it has been established that making the link is inappropriate and the
warnings are necessary. But for the attack sites policy, this is the *very
thing in dispute*.
Please try to separate the two issues. No separate policy is needed
in order to request people not to link to sites that habitually engage
in harassment and outing. Existing policies already cover this, as
was made plain in the MONGO arbitration. It's an unreliable source
(hence invalid in the article) and a site rife with harassment (hence
inappropriate in project space). The mature response to this being
pointed out is "oh, right." Pressing the issue and escalating it is
not likely to have any god result. No amount of Wikidrama will ever
make that an acceptable source, after all.
