Please I'd like to avoid getting into a big debate here on the
foundation mailing list. I just want to know what dispute procedures
there are on meta.

respond to any of my points. And the point you make above
is yet another straw man. If governments want to block or filter
Wikipedia there's nothing stopping them from doing that right now.
What this proposal does is provide users with a choice about which
images they are presented with when surfing Wikimedia projects.
And what if their providers/governments make the choice for them,
Thers is no choice for them left.
As I said governments and providers can do this already.
Also who decides on what is inappropriate? I much
better like another
solution. Put the shocking pictures on a subpage to the article
instead of electronically tagging them.
Then by all means go start a page on meta that sets out the
implementation of such an idea. I may not agree but I won't troll the
page that seeks to set out how to do it.
There is nothing stopping anybody from blocking or
right now no ..... I do not see one reason why we should give them the
tools to give them an excuse to do so and make it easier for them. Now
they might not filter becuase it is to much of a pain for them. But
when we will tag the things for them we only make it easier for them
to think hey yes we could do that! I see no reason to help them or
give them that idea.
We already tag, it's also called categorisation. This scheme simply
asks that all [[potentially offensive images]] are categorised before
being said to be implemented.
