Are we truly on a slippery slope with
'informative labelling' with neutral
language? Or can this be considered another aspect of curation?
We have a category system. Modulo idiots (the danger of a wiki is that
people can edit it), it mostly works.
How neutral can a "block any image in these categories" system be?
In that scenario: On day 1, the system, and categories, will be entirely
neutral. However the categories that are blessed (cursed) by the
image-hiding system are now potentially non-neutral.
Due to the way wikis work: by day ~365, the categories will very likely
be non-neutral in practice. We'll then be in the same situation as if we
had started out with non-neutral categories in the first place (verboten).
