Since BLP is supposed to apply in even strength
everywhere on Wikipedia,
but talk pages rather stupidly tend to be a free for all, this will keep any
nasty crap that may get editors or the WMF itself sued out of the search
Nein my friend. You cannot be sued for bitching at someone or calling them
names. Or rather you problem *can* but the complainent would be laughed out of
WMF itself cannot be sued for what *I* or *you* say. The responsibility for
what we say is ours, no one elses.
Talk pages are not a "free-for-all". If you really think this then you
have been around any controversial pages much. They are quite frequently
wiped, erased, edited, oversighted and so on for issues of BLP and/or libel.
Again this is just more about something which doesn't actually exist, in
order to try to get something we shouldn't really want implemented for quite
another reason. The way the system is working now is just fine.
