Good point. But still an issue. In many countries, calling for illegal activity on
Wikipedia is technically a violation of exisiting laws. Not writing text about people who
call for illegal activity, however, since that is not incitement (I hope).
"post material in which they personally call for criminal activity that would harm
human beings or seriously damage property, or suggest that a person or group of persons
are inferior or deserve harm."
...thus leaving out minor infractions and civil disobedience.
Arguably child molestation seriously harms a human being.
There has to be a way to write this...

1. Wikipedians must never post material that calls for illegal activity or the harming of
human beings or, through inaction, allow such text to remain unchallenged.
But "illegal activity" is open to interpretation. There are obvious
illegal activities, but there are many more whose illegality is
questionable, or whos legality may vary from one place to another.
