Did you ever read headlines like "Minister
warns of 'inbred'
You seem to have a lot of sensationalist journalism in the UK.
Do they all lie?
Yes, they all lie. Well done. You've certainly advanced the discussion
Oh I don't know, I see Raphael's statement as an encouraging one that not
every nation's press is as bad as ours.
Seriously on the images of Mohammed issue, I think we should take all
reasonable steps to remove barriers to people using Wikipedia within our
policies, which include that Wikipedia is not censored. If users want to
read Wikipedia without seeing certain images, then we should take reasonable
steps to help them. That goes whether they are doing so for religious
reasons or otherwise.
At Talk:Muhammad, instructions on how to disable images are linked to
for all the technical solutions we know of. If you know of more, or
can write MediaWiki patches and convince the devs to include them,
please feel invited to participate.
this page details instructions on how not to view images, for anyone
who finds any image objection. I'm unaware of any solution for those
who find text objectionable.
