first step of introducing censorship into our projects.
THERE. IS. NO. CENSORSHIP.
No need to shout and yes we disagree on that one. The way you lot have
been trampling on my views on this has the hallmarks of censorship. Yes,
in my opinion this proposal is about censorship.
will make it mandatory to allow for
tags/categorisations so that censorship will work.
Our proposal will make it POSSIBLE for categories to be used by
END-USERS to CHOOSE what they wish to see.
We disagree on this one. For it is not only end users that will choose.
Read your own proposal point 4.
*Your original article title was End-user content
decided that this was not "good" renamed it to image suppression
Because the focus was and has always been on images. Whether like
measures need to be taken for text is a different discussion.
Technically it is not different so why should it be a different discussion ?
*There has already been one anonymous coward
asking for using your
censoring mechanism for content.
Right, it is a straw mans argument that one thing leads to the next.
Read the history if you can still find what was said. It is there.
*You have repeatedly removed all things you thing
are detrimental to
your proposal from the article and its talk page
The article was intended for a discussion of the technical side of it.
Policy can be dealt with elsewhere.
It may have been intended by you for this. On Meta no case has been made
why we should want such an abomination.
*Basically you ask for censorship and find people
who oppose it.
You really need to read the wikien-l archives. Christiaan was one of
the most vocal opponents of linking images instead of inlining them.
I do not need to read the wikien-l archives. They have no bearing upon
META. If you want to propose something on META put your case forward on
META. I would not ask you to read the wikpedia-nl mailing list either.
Either put your case forward or you do not have a case.
As to your question, withdraw your proposal or
allow for criticism.
Constructive criticism is always welcome. Blanket false statements are
Your idea of what is true and false is coloured by where you stand,
where you are from. Your truth is just that. Making me out for a liar
and being not constructive is well, not friendly to say the least.
No thanks !
