It's kind of unclear what you're doing.
What kind of censorship are
you fighting against, the Chinese kind, or the Wikipedia Administrator
From looking at their website, it's neither of the above. They are
teaching people to circumvent [[content-control software]], the kind
put in place by schools on their networks to restrict what pages
students can see, for example.
Ah, rereading the message that's now pretty obvious. I guess that
falls under "the Chinese kind", and I think my comment that there
probably aren't a lot of people on here that need that kind of thing
is probably still true.
I don't see why we would want to be associated
with this at all. In
fact, I think we would want to be disassociated with this. If schools
or libraries or whatever choose to block Wikipedia, that's
disappointing, but it's their choice. It won't do us any good to be
associated with this type of project.
Well, to the extent that those schools or libraries are publicly
funded I'm not sure I agree that it's strictly "their choice" (depends
on who the "they" is), but I'm also not convinced that the decision is
the wrong one.
